Lottery win

Postby doogee » Tue Nov 27, 2007 12:25 am

One of the Other Lottery draws apart from the main draw here in the UK is a draw called the "Thunderball". It's 5 random numbers from 1 - 34 and then the one Thunderball number which is from 1 - 14.
There are lots of prize tiers ranging from £5 to £250,000.
Today i won £250 and i should be over the moon with a decent amount of money.
The thing is......i was ONE! number off the £250,000 prize.
I should be happy, but truth be told i am GUTTED, to come so close to a life changing amount of money has really pissed me off.
What a strange feeling..... :confused:

Ugh, frustrating, Doug!
But at least you have something. Spend it on something (or someone) that makes you happy. :)

"And it strikes . . . . like THUNDERBALL!!!"

Sorry . . . couldn't resist . . . :rolleyes:

I'm sorry you didn't win the BIG prize, but 250 pounds is nothing to sneeze at either! It's wonderful that you have a windfall right before Christmas . . . buy yourself a cool gift . . . or something fun for your family . . . either way, enjoy!! :D
