I'm not surprised - they weren't exactly minor cuts either as there were big chunks taken off some of the categories!

£50 to £25 and odds now cut even further.Ive got more chance of running across Jennifer Aniston and get her to go on a date with me than winning 'the big one'

I've pulled all but £50 out and put it else where. The returns and the recent chop doesn't seem worth it anymore.
