I THINK Graham Ball misses the point in his article "How the smart money is going back into Premium Bonds" (7 January).

Punters who place a modest amount on the Lottery each week do not see this as an investment but as the cost of entering the game; a game which we will either lose, win modestly or win extravagantly. We do not want to have to wait a month to see how our "investment" fares; we want to see as soon as possible how our perceived skill and judgement have managed against the odds.

Despite all the flaws, the National Lottery is a game that people enter to enjoy; just like we all used to enjoy the pools, spot the ball and betting.
