    WIN £5000 in Gold Sovereigns

    Every once in a while TAB run a comp for a big prize across ALL the mags.
    You can enter once for each mag thus gaining multiple entries.

    The mags on sale 14/09 are the first to feature the prize, which closes 30/11.
    Usually the puzzle and the answer are the same in each mag.
