So a local radio station has a daily contest where you can win cash prizes if they say your name on the air and you call in within a requisite amount of time. Today was my lucky day. I was the very first name the announcer read off and in turn, immediately called to claim my prize. Soooo my curiosity has gotten the better of me and I thought I'd ask to see if which of our members here have won prizes in the past from casinos, the lottery, radio contests, etc...

So if you've ever won anything of consequence, sound off.

I played the 'Price Is Right' game at a local casino about two years ago and won cash and prizes worth $810. That's the first thing I've won since a toy store drew my name for a Lionel Train at age 7.

I never win anything. I won $100 a couple of times on scratch tickets and Mega Bucks, but that's about it.

I had a streak many years ago where I won a world series pool then three weekly football polls in a row at work. That was worth $500 and haven't won anything since. I don't play much any more except when the powerball gets high enough then I buy a ticket so I can dream a little.

Actually my 86 year old mother is the professional bingo queen and has most of the luck in the family as she regularily cleans up.

Work pools reminds me that I did win a work pool worth $308. Just got back from vacation and was picking up my check. It was a good end to a vacation week. :)

I made my big win when I found out that no matter how rotten and wrong I am, my Father gave me a Saviour who not only paid for my sins, but loves me and helps me through the day...and is planning one fine retirement program....after taking advantage of that one....I can tell you for days of the good things that happen to me even in the middle of bad things....
Having said that...the BIG one...I've won a quarter of beef in a police lottery...at a time when my kids from my first marriage really needed it, $2 on a lottery ticket someone gave me, $2 on one I found on the ground, and $2 on a third one I don't remember how I got...may have bought it...but I used it to buy a gallon of milk....I don't go with luck, I live with blessings...I've gotten lots in life I don't deserve...and have not gotten a lot in life that I do deserve...for both of which I'm glad!!!

Amen brother......the only time I recieved a gift that i didn't deserve. I used to win something on a weekly basis....and never entered the contest !!!......I think it was called "whoopins" back then.

Dads and moms don't whoop their kids anymore but some sure could use it. My dad whooped my brother couple of times but not me. He'd want to kill me or so he said, but then I'd cry and yell for mom and always escaped. Beating is a totally different story. Whoopings are done with love. :lol:

I've had a couple good days at the horse track, but my overall balance sheet is not attractive. I won $1,200 on one race once, that was by far my best day! on the last race, too, so I couldn't lose any of it on the next one!

Never won anything from a radio station. Around here (DC area) you can't even get through to 411, let alone a radio station. Too Many People.
