Consider yourself lucky and unlucky. Never really won much myself.

I won 30,000 playing bingo that is once. Oh wait, pesos that is in Bogota, Colombia when I was 15. That's about $30 USD here.

I guess this really doesn't count, but I have like 10 free trips with all my FF miles I saved up.  Silly

I won a "Swatch the Beep" scall wristwatch several years ago. You could call a phone number and enter (or dictate) a numeric code that would then be sent to the watch and displayed on it... high tech!  Silly

I've also won on $5 slots. $1500 and $2700.

I won twice. Both times it was the second biggest prize. The first time, I bought myself a new jacket, the other time I just spent the money. Unfortunately, the sum was not big, but those were challenging times and I desperately needed that money.

$300 jackpot spinning the wheel after cashing my paycheck at a casino.
A lawsuit over about $900 in small claims.
Numerous system passes etc. at interline parties.
A few games of Freeno. (you watch the flashboard but don't buy a ticket)
Found 25 $20 bills once. Does that count?

I guess you have to gamble to win.
