Lucky Dip

Quotations
Quote of the Day


This comes directly from the funfair game whereby you would have a big bucket filled with hay and little gifts added into it, you had to put your hand in and pull something out at random.

You could get lucky and get a good gift or infact something that was really rather quite mundane indeed.

And hence anything that is seen as a pure game of chance is now called a lucky dip.
