You could always cash them & re-invest in new ones. Would only cost you one missing draw. You can't do any worse than winning nothing so have little to lose.

But we may just be seeing the full effect of low interest rates translating into poor returns. That & CJ taking more than her fair share!

I'm saving for a new car, so it will all be coming in September anyway, so I'll leave it in and not miss a potential winning month until its withdrew!

I suppose compared to a depreciating asset, one with zero return is still quite attractive!

£25 for me this month as well.

I am doing well, Invested £6k on 10th Jan 2011, so first draw was March 2012 and I have won £150 so far!

Currently thinking about adding more funds as it is doing well!

Another £25 for me in May.

Thats £125 in a Year and £175 since my investment of £6000 in Jan 2011.

Starting to like these and think I should top up my investment.

Christ on a bike - this month I've not won one lot of £25, not two lots of £25, but THREE lots of £25!!

I actually seem to be on an amazing run of form:

November = £25
December = £25
January = £25
February = £0
March = £25
April = £25
May = £25, £25, £25
