Its a rip off when I was in it, I checked to numbers and it was saying people in the next street had won, but I knew for a fact that no one had.
What the Postcode lottery does is put all of Britains Postcodes in the draw, so most of the number drawn are Postcode that have never joined up.

Said ont telly yesterday that in UK, currently, we spend £15 Billion a year on gambling.

Fifteen Billion is going to attract some shady practices, is it not.

And today, said they take £14 Billion in profits.

Which leaves only £1 Billion of costs, (including their payouts).


That means 93% of their takings are profit!
