I have €210k of Prize Bonds. I win €50 about every 3rd week. Last week it was €100. I have never won anything bigger than this over the 3 years I have had them. I get a dividend four times a year from a pharmaceutical company of about 6%. I really should move my prize bond funds in to these shares as they have been paying this dividend for years. However the share price took a knock earlier this year when it was suggested that going forward this dividend may be at risk. They have begun to recover now and back above what I paid for them. I don't like keeping all my eggs in the one basket. Like Palerider says I live in hope that I might win one of the bigger prizes and it's a bit of fun as well. However when I see that dividend come through my letter box four times a year that will cover the price of a week away in the sun I wonder am I being foolish in hoping that a big win is just around the corner.
