Me too, nothing on a full holding but my son has won £125 on £10k and he has won a lot more than I have over the last year. On the plus side, if my "investing" had protected my capital over the last six months in the way PB's have, I would be very happy indeed.
But in any event, PB's are not an investment, they are, IMHO a safe haven for shorter term cash - with a minuscule chance of winning something significant (we live in hope).
They are certainly not an investment but I had entertained the slight hope that I might get lucky for once and win something that might make a significant (or even a small) compensation for the huge losses I have sustained in my equity p/fs this year. Not enough prizes to go round for those in that boat, I should imagine.
