Will players now get payouts in cruises and boats and yachts and halyards and sheets and blocks and anchors and tackle and stuff?
A recent press release from the National Lottery (see below) boasts of over R2.5 Billion PAYED out in 2019.
When referring to financial transactions the correct past tense of the verb PAY is PAID. If the verb PAY is used in a nautical sense then the correct form is PAYED.
