Nothing here on £25k.

Website says next updated due 4th May so I assume any April award would be showing now.

Moi aussi. Yes the App is simple but I was hoping you'd have hit the jackpot.

Full holdings - tax years:

2016-17 £600
2017-18 £425
2018-19 £700
2019-20 £650
2020-21 £325 (5 blank months)

I told you you'd "win" this year! Was I right?


I'm afraid you are right. I won £425 this year. 3 blank months. Full holding. £575 has been my best total for some years and my total for the last 5 is £2475 so you are still ahead at £2700.

Strangely, the app says 5th May. Unless the website relates to the big prizes, which, IIRC, are announced a day earlier than the bulk of the prizes?

5th month of having just over £15k in play and nowt to show for it yet.

Martin Lewis assures me I'll win £50 in the first year, so Ernie is obviously just teasing me for a while ;)

...Yes. The lower rate is certainly making itself felt.

The lower returns are tempting me towards cashing in and investing in dividend shares or preference shares outside of an ISA. My wife and I have otherwise unused £4000 per year tax free dividend allowance.

Yes, Tuesday 4th May is first working day of May, so major prizes will be announced then. The rest will be out about midnight at the end of 4th/beginning of 5th.

2 lots of £50k, 2 £50 wins this month.

The cash is most of what is waiting for builders and architects and planning to get sorted, the rest is in Marcus. I only just (like 10 min ago) got the email telling me I'd won, though it doesn't say how much.

And who knows, there is a slim chance we might win enough to pay for all the works next month.
