No luck this month :(

I have put the sell wall back up but because of the average value of NXT over the last month, where it is now and the strength of the pound I have had to post the assets at 75 NXT  :-\ as each asset is represented by a £1 premium bond.

If NXT value changes (improves) significantly and consistently before the next draw then i will reduce this price - I will re-evaluate this on 20/11

I will remove the sell wall on 27/11 in advance of the next draw.

@chanc3r

There is sometimes a lead-in time of around ~2 weeks before you get allocated premium bond numbers, so if you bought mid month, it could be 6weeks from purchasing, before you get entered for the monthly draw. If someone buys on the AE on, say, 27th of a month, how will the purchaser get their premium bond numbers?

For non UK peeps, Premium Bonds have a long and cherished history in the UK. They were bought in large numbers back in the early days by grand-parents, for their grand-sons and daughters as birthday and xmas presents. Because they are perpetual, those children have a bit of fun and excitement every month finding out if their numbers have come in. Then you forget....for years....and then whilst doing something completely incidental, you suddenly remember you have something of potential value....and you get to re-live your childhood excitement all over again..................and then you forget again....for years.....!

The Pools, and Spot-The-Ball, next?  :-\
Haha
do the winning numbers ever 'expire'?
Or I bet there are quite a few people who don't find out they won until some time has passed!

AND THE TICKETS ARE PERPETUAL - i.e. they never expire, to stop I just sell them back to the government at the purchase price.

Nono, I mean say you got given some bonds 25 years ago as a birthday present
and forgot to check, but you had actually won
would you have already lost out on the prize? Or do they actually call and let you know that you won (because they know all your info as the bond holder)?

check out the primary site - there is a way to check for 'unclaimed prizes' - to my knowledge they never expire.

No win in January.
LOTTO Assets are back on sale at 80 NXT
Pegged at £1 they should be at 90 NXT really
But I'm betting on a rise in NXT by the end of the month so I've put them on at discount :)

No win in the march draw....
Assets back on sale at 111.85 which is a lower price than Feb due to NXT strengthening.
This is a pegged asset, 1 asset value is £1

Sorry I didn't update in April - we didn't win on the 1/4 draw...

WE DID WIN IN THE 1/5 DRAW - £25

This equates to 4222 NXT at current rates
As its still a small win :( I will pay out of my funds so no exchange losses.

With 5000 assets invested this is 0.84 NXT/Asset
As I still hold half... I'm upgrading the dividend to 1NXT/Asset

Distribution has been done using the dividend feature...
I understand you may not seen a transaction in your client but your balance will change.
