Have you ever won a lottery, or sweepstakes, or anything? I don't EVER win things. Granted, I don't play the lottery, but even raffles and drawings, I win NOTHING. Have you ever won anything? And if so, what did you win?

I won a Harry Potter video game for a gameboy. I collected pepsi pop bottle caps and entered the codes online. I was actually trying to get a music cd, but won that instead. so I gave it to my brother.

We don't really play the lottery alot however we have from time to time and two times we won about 50 dollars or so each time. That came in handy at the time since it paid a bill that was looming. Again we don't play alot and maybe when we do only a buck or two. If we win these days it seems to be another free card. Used to win a bit at bingo, again not big money, just enough to keep playing and having fun at a social event. As a rule, there is not a good chance at winning anything. Some people seem to but am not sure what all they have to go through to win whatever it is that they win. I'd rather work at a casino that play in one.

Yeah, I won't spend money trying to win something. UNless it's a raffle for a non-profit, I don't buy lotto tickets or anything. I may enter online sweepstakes if it's free to enter, but since I never win anything, I dont do it often. As for gambling.. the odds are against you, and I work hard for my money, I don't want to give it away!!

i think ive got the worst luck ever. ive played the lottery, entered raffles where sometimes ive put atleast 25-30 tickets and i fill up the crossword religiously every week in the newspaper and send it out but have i got anything yet...nothing..nada...moot. he he i did win a scratch and win at Hardees once, i won a pepsi, i think that time everyone was winning something...atleast a pepsi. atleast that time i didnt have an extra fluke of bad luck and be the only person to get a blank chit.

I win alot of things by phoning in to local radio stations. I used to win almost every time I phoned but now I dont do it so much. Tip is just be really really cheery and giggly because they dont want a boring dull winner on the line!!! they want people that will make other people want to phone in the next time because it sounds so exciting!!!

Well, i've earned a few little things like CD's, books, in some poetry contests. One of the bigest prizes that i've earned was an auto RadioCasette Player for an automobile, also in a poetry contest. I have my moments of inspiration, what can i say :) Even more, i've earned a phone (not mobile but for our home) and an invitation to a Depeche Mode concert here in Romania, both of them participating in contests from newspapers. Participating in such contests it's a fun thing to do, as long as you don't do it thinking exclusively of earning.

None. I think I have no luck when it comes to raffles and lotteries. I've tried to feng shui but the end result is always the same. I think I'm not fated to win anything from these games.

I have won thousands of dollars of stuff on a site called sweepstakesedge.com. YOu have to pay a minimal fee, but it is so worth it. The coolest thing I ever won was an all-expense five day trip to Atlanta--airfare, Omni Hotel, lunch with a CNN anchor. But I've won at least $1500 cash, and tons of smaller prizes. Check out sweepstakesedge.com

Ive won a lot of things off of radio contests. I have won lots of CD's, I won $100 once and a book. I've won T-Shirts. But never really anything major.

My ex-husband won from our weekly lotto drawing, not the big jackpot but enough to pay for our honeymoon. Too bad the marriage didn't last. LOL I have won lots of small things in my years of sweeping. I have one a gameboy micro from Cartoon Network, a Nintendo DS lite from a Ballpark Frank instant win game, then I hit the biggie. I won the Music Grand Prize from Sony's HD instant win sweepstakes that ended in March. We won a concert and activities anywhere in the US. Sony didn't have a concert that could take our girls too, so they went outside of Sony and we went to Disneyland (our first time there, and my girl's and hubby's first Disney trip ever) and we saw Hannah Montana. The funny thing was that I wanted so bad to win a Disney trip, that when Sony asked me for comments I just started to cry and thanked them for making this mom's dreams come true!

My husband won a lottery once before he got married to me. He told me he bought a second hand motorcycle with that money. However, he found out that the motorcycle caused him so much trouble, because it was 'hot money' according to him. I think it was too. So after a while he just left the motorcycle at a place after he bought a new one with his salary. Until now we don't know where the motorcycle had gone. Maybe somebody had taken it, but we don't care. Lol. It was such a memorable experience, though.

I have won $30 here or there at bingo and I'm always satisfied with that... it reimburses my playing cost ($15), my treats while I'm there and I still go home $10 richer! I go to Tupperingo parties, where they sell Tupperware and play bingo for prizes. Once, I won a whole set of 4 cups w-lids, 2 bowls w-lids, 4 plates and a pitcher. I also go to Home Interior Bingo parties and I've won candles and a really great angel picture. Twice, we have hit the big two dollar win on the Super Lotto by matching one number and the speedball... but we usually only play a dollar or two anyway ; ) I've won free luches for calling into radio stations too. They give out 6 of them!

Unfortunately, luck is not on my side. I don't often buy sweepstakes or lottery, but even those lucky draw coupons that I get to fill up for contests never won me anything. The only time I ever won something was an oven toaster and that was when I was working in a bank and during one of their annual lucky draws on bank account numbers, I won the consolation prize. I guess I am meant to work hard for my money and luxury, lol!
