How many entries does the magazine receive each week? I accept it must vary greatly due to the range of difficulty depending on the setter but what are the chances of scooping a prize? Or, are we just taxing our brains for the satisfaction gained?

Quite a good chance. Most regulars including myself win quite often.
I've been doing it about 10 yrs and must have won 10 times.

Thanks Roslyn, that gives me some encouragement.
I once asked the Daily Express how many entries they got for a weekly prize crossword.The answer was approximately 3,000.
Don't be discourage Malc, I have lost count of the number of wins I have had over the years.
I've won it several times and been a runner up.I was a runner up in a Christmas one and got a bottle of champagne as well.
I've won lots of prizes over the years doing crosswords and that's a lot of years.I've never bought a dictionary,they've all been prizes :)
