So it looks like the end of a live draw for our lottery.
Santas elves. Passed the winning numbers  out the window.

Well staff at the government Quango JFSC certainly don't need it - and they have won it. How convenient!

http://www.channel103.com/jfsc-syndicate-wins-the-jackpot/

I presume they are still drawing the winning numbers by computer, which used to be called Super Fred. At least in those more innocent days you could turn up and watch the winning numbers being generated live. Times have changed. Everyone is now aware of the vast extent of malicious hacking. If they can hack the most sophisticated computers of US government entities then they could surely hack old Super Fred! This is why a system of drawing million pound winning prizes by a secret computer method is no longer acceptable.

Only 13 prizes available in total out of that massive prize fund - ridiculous! They have loaded too much of the prize pot onto the first prize and not nearly enough onto the smallest prizes.

And yet again I note the appearance of the government's Murray Norton on CTV to compete the draw, only 2 days after his participation in the Budget...

" I presume they are still drawing the winning numbers by computer '?   It should be open and transparent without any doubt !!

A states quango wins - you are Joking ?

One wonders which states department will win it next year ?

One also wonders  as the draw was not transparent, if this will affect the confidence people will have to purchase tickets at the next draw next year.

Regardless of who won. Surely in this day and age a pre-programmed,(Or programmable), computer shouldn,t  be drawing the numbers!!!
Was suspicious of the,"Super Fred", thing decades ago. Anyone with an ounce of IT skills could tell it which numbers to draw.
Check out how many States department syndicates have won in the past.

Still feeling depressed that you never win anything on the Channel Islands Christmas Lottery? Reading this should help a bit:

£70 a day on food? They must have been shopping at Marks & Spencer LOL

   its  not hard to spend  £70.00 on food a day   just  eat out any where  in jersey  and you can   burn that  and  more,  and that's   not even getting  a nice bottle  of wine to go with the meal .
 i  doubt  these  two  were  slaving over  a hot stove .
 if  i was cooking at home the  wine would be £12.00  the   fillet  steak  would be £10.00   half a bag of  shell on prawns £7.00 (£15.00 a bag) and £2.00 or£2.50 on  mushrooms.
   and a little dessert  say£3.00 .
  so  that's £34.00 for a  weekend  treat ,  after slogging  away  all  week .
  these  two  should  be politicians  over here  as  they have the  same  skill  set  when it  comes to   squandering money .  with £50.000.
  a  small business  could of  being started ,  and  not of being in hock  to  a  financier.
