There is a group that do pay out huge amounts, they triple the amount for a period, & a woman won £15,000 on one phone call costing 75p & no connection fee, this is "The Mint" so called because winners get a chance to open a vault where they have to crack a 4 figure code, this has happened twice, both winning well over £100,000
about $192,000, all big winners are invited to collect their cheque, live in the studio, this is amazing because the programme is only on at night, between 12 & 4!!, I watch it in bed, as I don't sleep too well, & am having a cup of tea at about 3am, which means thousands are up then & phoning in, & yes, it is definitely alive because some men say something like "f****ng marvellous" when they win, & the presenter has to apologise to viewers.
