Think we have already been beaten to that but a tie up with a partner along the same lines seems a good idea...

And what exactly are the odds of a postcode being chosen? Surely there must be hundreds of thousands of UK postcodes, if not a few million?

Only the postcodes of active members are entered. The number of postcodes in the country is not relevant.

It is like names in a hat ,if a postcode isn't registered it doesn't go in the draw ,if 3 people from one postcode are registered then that post code goes in the draw 3 times.
How to play
Simply by registering your postcode and email address that is active, means that your postcode will automatically go into the pool of postcodes from which a selection of random postcodes are chosen every day.

You must be over 18 to play our lottery. If you are under 18 please ask an adult to play on your behalf.
Only postcodes that are registered by players will be drawn. So, there is always at least one eligible winner – there’s no danger of us choosing a postcode where nobody can win!
If the winner(s) fail to visit the site and collect their prize on the day their postcode is picked, then the prize pot is rolled into the next one. If you miss the time slot where your postcode is the winner, then you can’t claim your prize.
If the same postcode has been entered more than once (by different players) then the prize is equally shared between them (if the postcode is drawn).
The more players there are in a postcode the more chance that postcode will be drawn. For example, if there are 10 players in postcode A, and 1 player in postcode B, postcode A is 10 times more likely to be drawn.
Players can only register once. You can only have one postcode and one email registered at one time. If you move or change your email address you can click the ‘Change postcode/email’ link and change either of these. Anyone found breaking this rule will have their entry disabled without notice. • Once the lottery draw has been made, those who have already registered the drawn postcode are eligible to ‘Collect’. Registering a postcode after it has been drawn does not entitle you to collect for that draw.
To ‘Collect’ the player needs to visit the site and press the ‘Collect’ button before the next draw. This only appears if you are a winner, so if you’ve seen this button, congratulations – go and claim your prize now!
Once a player has ‘collected’, they have secured a proportion of the prize pot. The proportion they finally get depends on how many others from the winning postcode collect before the next draw.
Whenever there is a draw, those who have won and collected for the last draw will be notified of their winnings via email.
By ‘Player’ we mean someone who lives in the UK and is fortunate enough to have home with a postcode (and email address).
Email reminders are provided to help you remember to check if you are a lottery winner. If they fail, or your email provider chooses to filter them into Spam/Junk folders then we are not liable for missed winnings.
In order to keep the site fair, and make sure real people are winning the money, we reserve the right to query certain entries. In particular, ‘role’ based email addresses (eg. info@company.com) or non-personal addresses (eg. company@hotmail.com) are likely to be queried if they are one of multiple entries from a single postcode. We ask that you avoid using such email addresses if you can.
We reserve the right to withold winnings if we cannot ascertain that the entry is legitimate. We may require proof of address.
We don’t want to bother you, so in order to reduce unwanted, and unopened emails, we will automatically cancel your daily lottery draw alerts if you have not visited the site for over a month.
We may temporarily remove entries that have not visited the site for over a week. These dormant entries will be reactivated the next time the user logs in either directly on the site, or via a reminder email, but will not be eligible to claim prizes drawn whilst dormant.

For anyone like me who didn't know:
Formicarium

A formicarium or ant farm is a vivarium which is designed primarily for the study of ant colonies and how ants behave. Those who study ant behavior are known as myrmecologists.

We had a whole thread on Free Postcode Lottery (its previous incarnation) at one time. My husband and I have been members from quite early on and we have both won twice. A chance of cash prizes for just 2-3 minutes each day.

We have been members from the very early days after a mention on here, won nothing but check daily.

One answer to stop same postcode winning more than once would to only use the ones that have not been a winner. But that would be against what I see as the site ethos and mean anyone joining who was in a postcode that had previously won would mean there was no point of them being a member. So good luck to winners including those who have won more than once. And for the rest of us, today could be the day. Maybe I will go to the grave never winning but hey ho it is free and a bit of fun.

Not sure that I see quidders mentioned very much these days so maybe worth Richard checking if they would partner with us
