Jackpot, as its title suggests, was all about winning. From the hyper-competitive The Winners family, who featured regularly on the front cover, to Jack Pott  and Sporty, this theme was reflected in its stories, and also in the many reader competitions that the comic ran. Today's issue announced the winner of Jackpot's 'Editor for the day' competition (that had been announced six months earlier), with some fun behind-the-scenes photos that included Jackpot's editor of the day. Can anybody name him, please?
