    I presumed I would be able to purchase 315 tickets using my online lottery account. Easy, it means they check the winners and credit my account and I just need to do screen grabs of the virtual tickets. Tickets can't be lost etc... But No

    The max an individual can bet is £350 :shout::shout:

    Which means I have to travel to the bank, withdraw cash, go to the store and look a right pratt while I buy 315 tickets (that'll make the papers where I live :Doh: )

    Then get back to the office and scan them all and get them on line so you guys know I'm not ripping you off, then we have to manually check and travel to collect any winnings :shout::shout::shout::shout::shout:

    On top of that I need to cram in a days work. I do hope its worth it:BigGrin:

    Oh Jim what a piggin' nuisance!! Could you not open another lottery account in Sian's name?
    Anyway, a big thank you for all the time and trouble you are going to. Even if we don't win it's been a very exciting morning (yes, I really must get out more!).

    No pain, no gain. But only the pain is ever guaranteed!

    It will be easier for you if you buy as many as you can online first and then buy the rest at a shop, it also might prevent their machine running out of paper :Rofl1:

    P.s you don't need to check them manually, you just take them back to the shop afterwards and they can scan each one, they'll love you :Rofl1:

    Can you and Sian not buy half each on line? :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Otherwise by half on line and the rest manually.

    Remind me of your local lottery dealer so we can call the press in advance :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I wonder whether they have raised the limits since they raised the cost of lottery tickets? Might be worth a telephone call to lottery hq.

    Good luck with it Jim hope it doesnt cause you and Sian hours of laborious work

    Best hope we win real big then. A scoop of £5998 will result in Jim being back at the shop buying 2999 tickets next time :Rofl1: Jane

    :Rofl1: that's karma, Jim, for making sure that those of us on the road to work at the time you sold the tickets were effectively excluded from the syndicate! :Rofl1:
