do you have lucky pen you use to fill out the tickets? do you have a gemstone which is associated with bringing good fortune? No to these but OTRT

At what point did you decide to buy five:
- Before entering the store?
- Before buying the tickets?
- As you asked for the tickets?
- As you paid for the tickets? This one and good question!
- After you bought the orignial two tickets?

Do you consider it lucky to pay the exact amount for your lottery tickets, and only had a £5 note rather than a £2 coin?

Not this, but you are definitely OTRT! Put this together with the above stuff and...

Hmm, Your Husband lent you a £5 note to buy a couple of Lottery tickets. You got to the shop, and realised that they were £1 a ticket. You perhaps find it unlucky to break something, and hence you don't particularly wish to break a £5 note in order to buy 2 Lottery tickets, so of course, you don't!

No :) - and there were no £5 notes involved, if there had been maybe I wouldn't have had this problem!

Did you pay with pound coins? a £10 note? a £20 note? relevant?

Is any of this true ...

Husband says "use the money from my wallet to buy some lottery tickets"?
You think there is £2 in the wallet, so expect to buy 2 tickets?
As you pay, you discover a secret compartment in the wallet with £3 in, so you buy 3 extra tickets?
Thereby incurring the wrath of your husband for spending his "lucky £3" which he had been carrying around in the wallet for the last twenty years?
Husband threatens divorce proceedings for spending his lucky money? L
But then the ticket wins £1 million, so he forgives you and you retire to live in luxury on a sun-kissed beach for the rest of you lives? J

Thereby incurring the wrath of your husband for spending his "lucky £3" which he had been carrying around in the wallet for the last twenty years? You are completely wrong, but you have picked up on the most important point!
Husband threatens divorce proceedings for spending his lucky money? L Not yet but he's still thinking

So is it the money itself which is considered "lucky"?

By whom is it considered lucky - you? husband? anyone else?

Is all £5 lucky?
Is the £2 you were originally going to spend lucky?
Is the extra £3 that you spent lucky?

Did you feel your chances of luck increased by spending £5 instead of £2. Is there fact that pound coins are goldish in colour relevant?

There are five one pound coins involved in this puzzle? Or are there some more? Are the two pounds you thought you were going to spend a subset of the five pounds you did spend? Does it matter?

Any other relevant notes or coins?

Of the pound coins involved, how many are considered "lucky" by you and your husband: 1? 2? 3? 4? 5? ...

And a very late congrats from me, too

Was the lucky pound within the first 2? or the following 3? If within the first 2, did you try to get it back? By winning?

When you left home, you thought you were going to buy 2 tickets?

When you left home, your husband expected you to buy 2 tickets? or 5 tickets? or some other number? He didn't know?

Thank you!


Was the lucky pound within the first 2? This or the following 3? If within the first 2, did you try to get it back? Not really By winning?

When you left home, you thought you were going to buy 2 tickets? Yes

When you left home, your husband expected you to buy 2 tickets? Well, he knew I was going to buy one at least as I had his lucky pound. It's not really relevant how many he thought I would buy or 5 tickets? or some other number? He didn't know?
You are right though to try to sort out the events in the order they happened

Ohhh! Lightbulb moment!!

Did he want you to be sure to use his lucky coin to buy the tickets, but since there were five coins in his wallet, you didn't know which one was the lucky one, so you had to use them all?

WeYou have the right idea...but his exact words were "Use the lucky pound on my bedside table...where did the others come in?

You didn't know you had to buy five till you got to the store... so you took the lucky pound from the table and dropped it in your purse/pocket/wallet, and when you got to the store realized that you had already had four of your own there, so you no longer knew which one was the lucky one and you had to use all five? (his 1 and your 4?)

Very nice! I derailed myself a couple of times early on... not your fault, though.
