I won an all inclusive trip to Florida one time which was kind of fun. It included air fair and lodging.. I actually had been to Fla. Several times though..I would have preferred second prize which was 500 dollars. I also won a large Quilt one time..but I never used it. It is still at my parent's,s house. It needs to be sold. The quilt was just too plain for my tastes..I won smaller things too..large Dr. Pepper cooler, CD's books etc. Have you ever won anytjhing good?

That is good. I usually manage to keep some of the house money when I bet.

@snowy22315 I remember that we bought a package from Europe, three nights in the hotel, free breakfast and lunch and chips to play in the Casino. We had fun.

I’ve talked about mine before. Winning a trip for two to see three events in the 2000 Olympics in Australia, with a side trip to New Zealand (included airfare and hotel accommodations). I took my sister, although to be honest, I asked my dad if he wanted to go with me first. Truth be told, I would have preferred to take my mom, but I knew her health was too bad to go.

@snowy22315 Oh no! I hope that didn’t take away your enjoyment of the trip. The website I won the trip from is defunct now. Back then, before I had any health diagnosis, I would go night after night without sleep, so I entered every contest known to man. I won some DVDS, gift cards, books, and a few little things, but one day I came home from school (college), my dad met me at the door, and a lady was on the phone with some incredible news. I thought it was a scam at first.

@AmbiePam Yeah, I know something too good like that usually is.Poor thing..lack of sleep is really draining.That trip must have been amazing.One of the interesting things I heard about was someone who got those 3 keys in the mail from a car dealership. She tried one and really won a car!!

Wow, you won a trip ! I guess my best "win" was 2 hockey game tlckets, many years ago. Since tickets were expensive, we never could afford to go . . . so we were pretty excited to get them.

@snowy22315 It really was fun at the time. I've always loved to sing. One of the contests we won was a booking at King's Dominion in Virginia. We performed on a Sat and Sunday.

Nice, congrats, I never won anything, unless I worked for it. I am not bitter not at all. Sometimes those the things that make life bearable.

I cannot say as though I have ever won anything of any significance. But maybe you already knew that I was a loser.

I won 25 gift cards twice in a row. I get book newsletters from a book website and the owner of the website asks a question every month and my response was picked. I won five dollars on a scratch off many years ago. I hope to win some sweepstakes on Bing, Swagbucks, and Mypoints.
