Neil Gits A Lucky Dip … Again !

24th December 2022
Posted by Neil Matthew

It seems the Lotto gods have been on my side lately – in four of the last five weeks I have matched two of the six numbers and received an email on Sunday excitedly telling me that I have won a “Free Lucky Dip Ticket”. So, as I cannot remember the last time I actually won a cash prize playing the National Lottery, that pretty much means that I have doubled my chances of winning precisely nothing !! My £2 of course does go towards worthy causes, but I think I would rather have matched three numbers on just one of those four weeks and pocketed thirty quid … or even better match all six and never have to play again !!!

Your luck is in this evening if you enjoy some Saturday Soul on Gateway – it may be Xmas Eve but the usual ‘Repeat Play’ will be broadcast today at 5pm and I will be LIVE in my regular Monday Night spot on Boxing Day from 7-9pm too, so there are four hours worth of radio listening this weekend where you can be sure of avoiding Slade & Shaky and countless other cheesy seasonal offerings ! And if that’s not enough, visit “Cool Soul” at the “Listen Again” page and pick any of my shows from the last 28 days, safe in the knowledge that they will be totally ‘Festive Free’ – and a Merry Xmas to you to !!
