Have you ever win an online contest? with the internet most contests are done online, like in AXN when i tune in they would have contests done online, or the one i just saw on Facebook for sony ericson where the winner will win a sony e phone.. i joined several contests in the past before, i never really did win. luck or bad luck?

It's not bad luck, it's just that the probability of winning is so small. But then a small probability is better against having no chance at all if you won't join. So don't get discourage and just keep on trying, as long as it's free then you have nothing to lose. Who knows, your name may just appear on TV saying that you've just won. Let's just hope that it's not a text message from someone claiming they're from BSP telling you that your SIM has been chosen and you've just won a raffle.

hi jazel Contests and me are just two opposite ends which will never meet. I never tried to participate in any Online contest ever though, but I did when at college (in early 1990s) and realized that the only thing that I can ever win on them is some of a strange feeling - you know the feeling - Pllleeeaseee lemme get to win this tie a small chocolate too will do kind of feeling!

I have never won an online contest or sweepstakes and I've probably entered my share. It's been a long time since I've won anything anywhere. I would say about 6-7 years ago I won a raffle at my niece's school. I think I am due for a big win! From my lips, to God's ears!

hi jazel__juan I never win at the few I tried. I think the odds are really n against us in those contests as there are hundreds who enter. for some reason I am just not lucky at winning contests and thus I just gave up and did not bother wasting my time as I just knew I would never win so why even try. I do try at publishers clearing house but I do it out of fun not expecting to win anything. So if I did win big I would really be very surprising to me.

Maybe those weren't for you and there are big things that will come ONLY for you. :) I have never tried online contest. I think it would be impossible for me to win because surely this will be flooded with crows.

I had also joined many games and contest but I was not able to win them. Once I took part a game named super selector conducted by ESPEN. I was having the second potion in the sixth round but in the final round became a utter failure. I was thrown out to 54th postion. God was with me till the sixth round but at last he was bus with his doing. This made me to stay out from the contest.

Maybe you're not one of those lucky people who seem to win at anything. I don't think I have that luck either. I so envy an officemate I had before because she was so lucky. She'd go to a casino, play just the slot machines and win! The last time I saw her, she won close to PHP 4 million (USD 95,200 something)! (She had won 3 times in one week). Some people are just plain lucky.

hi there jazel_juan, well, i am always dreaming and hoping that i can win on a contest. either it is an online or offline. i remember before, it was way back 8 years ago, when i won a raffle where an 10 cubic feet refrigerator was the prize at stake then. however, after that, i never met a luck in winning. so i am aspiring again that someday, i will get another chance to win.

I won twice but I never won the first price, I envy those who has great luck joining a contest and won the first price. I have friend who participated in a contest and won a hard disk, or won a laptop. Well, I dont consider it as a bad luck but everyone has their own luck, maybe your luck is not in online contest but you have better luck in other things...such as you have talent to do art (I consider that you are lucky to have this talent, a long lasting luck). Maybe Im not really lucky in online contest but Im 100% sure Im lucky in other things. So Im telling myself to keep believing that i am always lucky even if i do not win the contest

I have never won anything either, although there were times when I joined many contests. The only time I won something was in a kids' magazine, but I had to lean that it had no prize at all. I sometimes wonder if those who win contests do something better than us, or do contests full time, or it's just plain luck.
