    Have you ever won something like a contest, drawing, lottery, etc.? I remember winning $125 in one of those scratch-off games in a store and winning two packs of basketball cards in a drawing on a web site. Didn't win the million yet.

    My aunt must be the luckiest person in the world. She won a brand new car in a drawing... and now we found out she just recently won a brand new computer!

    Won a walkman once in college. What about those, pay $100 for a ticket to win a car sweeps. Ohhh, and some guy in Manhattan Beach is offering his $800,000 home as a sweeps. Terms: submit a 400 word essay (why Manhattan Beach is the best place to live, I think), along with a $200 entry fee. $20 donated to a local charity too.

    Recently I won a $5 gift certificate for amazon.com from luckysurf.com. Matched 4 out 7 numbers for that whopper of a prize. I suppose it would be a bigger deal except that about a month earlier, just for picking my lucky 7 numbers they gave me a $5 gift certificate for some online drug store--didn't have to match any or nothin'.

    I won an IntelliVision when I was 11 or 12 from Lucky Charms cereal drawing!

    And I accidently won a New Kids on the Block cassette tape (in 1989 or so) from a radio station, twice. I just heard them say "Call Now to WIN!" and didn't know what the prize was. A week later, the same thing happened and I won again. I've since given up on radio contests. With my luck, I'll win Celine Dion's Greatest Hits or something...

    I won tickets to see Steps live once. I'd entered the competition about 30 times to try and get a backstage pass

    I won a copy of the Cable Guy Soundtrack on CD one time.

    I've won free Pepsis and the like on those bottlecap things, but the Cable Guy CD was my biggest win.

    I won the equivalent of $700 on a scratch game... My stepfather is luckier, he won three times, each time $300.
    My mom & i are always playing the same numbers at the national lottery and they once came out ! But we didn't play because my mother wanted to spare some money for her cigs instead playing the lottery. I thought i'd kill her when i saw the magical numbers on the screen.
