I won a sminoff ice fridge, a few CD Albums from Lincs fm. And got interviewed on one radio station. Leicester sound. It was my 2ns to last day in work, was about to go to Las Vegas, and then join the RAF.

They wanted people to txt in with what they were doin, so i did. They called, and then we had a 10 min chat. Was cool.
Where does the time go???

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

A few tenners on the lottery
A few PC games won at raffles

Never any big money - which is a shame, as I could really do with it!

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 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.
