What I've Spent On The UK National Lottery So Far

Up until and including Lottery #70, I bought one ticket per "normal" draw, a second ticket for a rollover draw or Super Draw and a third ticket for a double rollover draw. This pattern has been exactly doubled from Lottery #71 onwards and from Lottery #117 (Wednesday 5th February 1997), I started using this doubled pattern for both the Saturday and Wednesday draws.

I'm currently in my 13th subscription period (which lasts 52 weeks).

Here's a table of my spending to date: [Updated]
