And how did you win this prize? From a sweepstakes, drawing, lottery,etc? I haven't really won too much. Guess I don't have good luck lol. I would say the best thing I've ever won was a pair of tickets to the University of Tennessee vs. Florida football tickets in 2004. I won a drawing at a restaurant and took my mom. We are both huge UT fans so we had a blast at the game. We ended up sneaking into the student section next to the band so I could sit with my friends. That was an awesome game. UT won but it was very close. They had security all around the football game to keep fans from rushing the field to tear down the goalposts.

My favorite prize was 4 tickets to Disneyland. The price of the tickets may not seem like a lot, but I was a college student and like most students didn't have very much money. Three of my college friends and I had a road trip that summer that I will never forget and each of them bought me something at the park. One of my friends wasn't very tall and her ticket became a child ticket, which was so funny, as she was the oldest. She even pulled out identification and the ticket person asked, if we wanted it changed. She said, no because the stub would be priceless to show her children in the future.

I gamble a lot. I buy scratch off lottery tickets, I play Bingo, and I go to the casinos. The best yet not the most valubale prize was a drawing at Black Bear Casino that I had won. I had many entries many times before this day in other drawings. This time I had just one entry in the drum. I also had family from out of state visiting which made this all the better. Hahahaha! They draw 15 names and there's 15 envelopes on the board to pick from. The prizes ranged from $100 up to $5,000. I was 3rd to pick an envelope. I had my Aunt, brother,sis-in-law, mom, and dad all there watching. I picked the envelope and it contained $1,500. I ended up giving $200 to my daughter and $500 to my wife & I used $250 for more gambling fun and the rest went into the bank. This was awesome due to so many family around as I won it. Thanks for a great discussion also. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Well, I won $1000 in an Internet contest and I also won an all expense paid trip to Atlanta where we stayed in the Omni and got to have lunch with a CNN anchor as well as a VIP tour of CNN. We had a great time.

Do you really want to know how lucky I am??? Are you ready? Are you sitting down? The one and only thing that I have ever won was when It was 1989, I was aroound 9 years old and I entered a contest in the local mall. I won a Batman Hollowe'en costume. I seriously have not ever won anything after that. I don't enter many contests though. I do buy raffle tickets and what not for charities but I don't gamble all that much. I think it is because I used to work at a bingo hall and saw people who really were addicted throwing their money away and crying because it was their rent money. I did get a schloarship to go to a good university (which in my young immature stupidity I blew off) but I don't think that would be included as "winning" it as I worked bloody hard for that scholarship. I am not the sharpest tool in the shed but I do know how to dig my heels in and work like a mule to get what I want.

I still remember being dragged out by my friends to the casino when I was 19 years old one night. I had $15 dollars in my pocket, so I don't even know why they wanted me to go. Anyway, I pretty much just stood around and watched them play for 4 hours or so. Then as we were leaving I decided to play 1 hand of let it ride. I won with 4 of a kind and was paid out almost $1200! I'll never forget that, my friends who dragged me out lost money and I ended up winning and I only had $15 with me haha...

I think that I have only won two things in my entire life. I remember I won a doll several years ago in a grocery store drawing. Coming from a fairly poor family, that was the highlight of my year. I had a new doll and it wasn't Christmas!! I recently just won over $70 in gift certificates at a local restaurant and a local theatre. I was excited over that!! I can hardly wait to use them!! I have never had really good luck in things like that, but it was fun to win those gift certificates.

This time last year I went downtown to the Rib America Fest. They have booths where you can enter your name for different contests. I entered them all and won a trip for 2 to Manhattan, NY for 2 nights and 3 days. They paid the airfare, the hotel room, and gave us $600 in spending money. We had to go to a VIP party on the Banana Boat Yacht for 3 hours and the rest of the time was ours to spend however we wanted. We got a couple of t-shirts, some sun screen, and other goodies in a welcome package. It was the most fun I've ever had! I've never walked so much in my life though. Haha! Of course, that's the best way to experience Manhattan.

I also have tried many times to win something off the radio but never did so this was a great and exhilarting experience for me. geez it really is so fun to win something isn't it?

I think the best prize I have won so far (note that I say so far...I fully intend to win big bucks..someday..lol) is 2 tickets to a Boston Red Sox Game. They were excellent box seats front row to the left of home plate.

I have to admit that I always have poor luck.I never got any prize from a sweepstakes,drawing,lottery,etc,so I can't experience the feeling of getting prize at all.Therefore,I never join such activity.
