I've got nearly 3200 patches and also not won. I'm fairly good at checking it each day with only the odd day missed. I don't know why I find it so addictive, lol.

Things I've noticed..........
1) The "story" ended pretty quickly along with the chance to earn those bonus patches
2) The maximum you can win is £195
3) Randomly my maximum winning amount went to £194 recently then back up to £195 so that was strange

My goodness kimilsung and topaz. My modest 966 patches are just but a drop in the ocean in comparison! I was quite taken aback to read of the guy from Lancashire that managed four daily wins in about a week! Maybe he has a couple of a 1000 acres of patches.

Just signed up for this - must remember to add to my daily checklist!

Does anyone else get an "development purposes only" error on the maps page on this site?

Yes, the error message has been there for many months. Just click the OK button to get rid of it.

Hi, yes the same for me too. I've noticed the last winner was mid Feb. So many people must have got bored with this lottery and no longer check. This is good for the site owners I imagine as they still must get lots of traffic but pay no prize money. Maybe they should change it so that if you miss more than 2 or three days in a row you don't get entered in the draw for that week. Or at least give consolation prizes of a few patches to random names now and again.

Well the owner was a little sneaky. He recently weighted the winners to slightly favour newbies, in the hope that it would encourage more people to join. What actually happened was that the newbies signed up, forgot to check, so didn't claim. Hence the lack of people that have claimed recently.
He learnt from his mistake and has now set the algorithm back to randomly pick equally, rather than weighting it in the favour of newbies. Not that I think he should have done what he did in the first place. It should always have been a level playing field, in my opinion!

Hi Topaz, "Sneaky" - you're not kidding! It's not good practice is it.

Presumably this is played under The Lotteries Act or similar and I would have thought that weighting it was against that law. I saw that banner and thought that was very sneaky and I noticed it didn't stay there long! I have been playing for a long time and am up to £300 win. I have never won and I'm now wondering why .. If you don't play Pick My Postcode for a while then your postcode is no longer entered and I agree with the above poster this should be the same. There hardly ever seems to be anybody claiming but if there is it's always the same people quite quickly in succession. I feel that this site is no longer worth me logging into every day as I can't see me ever winning!

Was just going to post about the fact the same person won 4 times in January! Now I see it must have been due to the weighting. Must have been some pretty heavy weighting when 1 newbie wins 4 times and others with 1000s of patches get nothing!
