What do I win!! Cheesy Cheesy

Well you are on the road to a major prize all you have to do is answer a second question correctly and the prize is yours subject to the following conditions,
1. You PM me the answer before midnight Friday 18th May 2012
2. You do not display the answer on the forum
3. you don't disclose the answer to anyone else
You are allowed to do any research or consult with anyone who might be able to help you with the answer and you can have 6 attempts to get it correct but it must be fully correct.
If you get it right then it will be the biggest prize you are likely to have ever won !
Now on to the question,




What are the 6 winning lottery numbers for this Saturdays Draw ? 
NB: They do not have to be in the order drawn (just to make it easier for you) but they must all be correct !!

Re: June 6th Will you miss it ?

Ah, but that's why I was replying to randpwar rather than anyone else on the forum.
The prize is not specified other than it's a major one, now if randpwar does send me a list of numbers he will have to do the same numbers himself (assuming he gambles) or he could take the risk of not doing them and end up in a position where he has won the lottery for me (the ticket holder) and he ends up with what I consider a major prize !!
Stranger things have happened !
