This seems to be winning, so far.

Not really. Needs to be on a single holding I'd say.

Otherwise, how many family members can you include?

That's what I said - "for one person, in any one month?" Where does the above indicate more than one holding? Although it also doesn't say it is a single holding...
Will have to see if OP confirms.

The 80k, assuming that is £s Sterling.

Duh! Of course, not thinking again. :)

Oh well, that one is ruled out. So I'm still in the lead with 8 wins in February this year. Surely somebody here can beat that?

£80k is made up of two holdings of £40K - Myself and Doris. Fingers crossed for Friday :lol:

Isn't the total value in any year (either of any one prize or collectively) more relevant? Many years ago, I had 2 x £1,000 prizes (not in the same year) but that was before interest rates came down and I don't think there were so many people with max. holdings. In recent years, the return has been very disappointing.

The small prize winners haven't been announced yet but the big ones can be seen on here: https://www.lovemoney.com/news/13635/pr ... e1headline

I see one of the £25k prizes went to a holder of only £1000 and there were a few other quite small holders. Unfortunately, Bucks, where I live, does not figure anywhere in this list.

Correction: I have just spotted one £10k winner but with only a £10k holding, it won't be me.

The official line from the NS&I is that the smaller prize list will be available via the online prize-checker from the second working day of the new month, but when that second day falls on a Saturday they often seem to get it working a day earlier, as is the case this month, where the November smaller prizes can now be checked here -

Yes, I pointed out earlier in this (long) thread, where they say "second working day" they really mean "the day after the first working day".

(And in fact it's usually a few minutes before midnight on the first working day.)

And there's nothing unplanned about it, the app has been saying for the last month that the results would be available on the 2nd.

Well the app is saying the next draw is in 31 days on the 3rd December. Which does reflect observed reality.

I am only at £300 in this tax year but there is still time to catch up, says she without feeling any optimism.
