I have won a tv once at a raffle at work. It was a regular 27 inch tv. When I found out I won I could not believe it. I was so happy I had won. It was like a dream come true. I had never won anything in my life. I was so happy. I have always wanted to win something and I did. I was just so shocked when they pulled my name out of the hat. It's been a five years since I have won anything else. I hope to win something again some day. I play pogo online and hope but I know that almost impossible to win but it fun though.

it was since a decade as well that after 10 years in school,i was not in the list of winners.i went to participate in a competetion in the guide camp where i was prompted by my friends about how to the knots.and when i turned and looked back one of my seniors smiled and me and said,"you r the guide captain and you are waiting for your friends to get prompted about the knots"?when i returned to home and thought for a minute that what i did through out my schooling,just wasting my time though gossips and pulling evry body's legs.i will not forget that day when i received a call from shri nalinikanta mohanty,my mentor,saying that,i was to receive the best guide award from the governor.and it was what i won!!may be nothing is impossible!!

No. I haven 't won much of anything. Maybe 50 bucks on the loto, but that's just about it. Most winnings are real junk. and that preaty much sums a lot up. My sister won a raffle at my school though. It was funny because I had to bring the gift home. I could hardly believe it.

I am a bit unlucky, and I have never won anything relatively big. The only thing I could remember winning is a basketball when I was small. It was a big raffle, and the ball was just one of the hundred's of consolation prizes. In terms of lottery though, the biggest I won was $70. It was not much, but it was much better than the regular $1 and $2 that I always get.

hell0! wow, it is really great, i think that if I won something big like a TV a will just jump from happiness, because I have actually never won something that big. the only thing that I have on once, was a teddy bear at local fair and it was really cool, because it was my first and as a see my last big reward that I have ever won :)

The biggest thing (as in tangible) is none. Really, I am not fortunate when it comes to things like this. Although, I have tried winning competitions a lot and raffle draws giving away pizza. Oh well, that's life! Some are lucky and some are meant for contentment.

It was during my 2nd year college before. But it was in the name of my aunt... but I was who filled up the raffle coupons with their names... it was a sharp refrigerator, I was so happy one day when I saw it being delivered in the house... since that time, I was the one who always filled up the coupons, but we never win again... we were praying for a house and lot but the fate never favored us... and now how I wish I could win in my name... I wish for a laptop... I am always treasuring all the raffle tickets I got from the mall, unfortunately, it was not my time yet... :-)

Congrats!! I recently filled a fuel for Rs. 300?- at Indian Oil bunk and got a scratch card. After scratching, I found a code which I messaged to IOC. They called me this month and informed that I won a petrol worth Rs. 2500/-(around 75 Litres) I am yet to claim the prize.
