Over the summer, I started off with a £1 scratch card. I won a few pounds on it and - instead of cashing in - I purchased more tickets just to see how far my luck would go.
In October, I had a five pound card left and decided that I would wait until close to Christmas and purchase one of the company's festive-themed cards.
I did that this morning.
As you can see, I bought the 'Santa's Millions' card. It promised '13 Chances To Win!' on the bottom, so thought I'd use the five pounds on this one.
Unfortunately, the experiment ended today.
Yep, the card didn't give me a winner. This does not come as a surprise. I hardly ever win on the big Christmas scratch cards whenever I've been compelled to have a gamble.
It was fun while it lasted. It only cost me a pound!
I will try this again sometime next year.
