    Default Have you ever won an item or cash prize in a contest?

    I haven't seen a thread like this and double checked haha.

    Sooo, without doing any effort (talent contests, singing contests, cosplay contests, have you guys ever won something for joining? It could be the lottery, a raffle from an event or something of the sort.

    I'm just curious if there are really a lot of lucky people out there lol.

    As for me the best I've won was an original copy of GTA IV a couple years back. Oh and a refrigerator from a school bingo event.

    wow the original copy
    Umm I haven't won anything without doing effort....sometimes even after working hard I'm not able to win anything :| Proves that I'm one of the most unluckiest people in the world
    So I have to study and work a lot to earn my medals, certificates and awards.

    Yeah, I think I did a long time back. Won a free ticket to a jamming session by this professional drummer in Makati. Forgot who the person was. Another instance was back when I was a kid and won a family computer and some Encyclopedias.

    I asked my mother about this because I have the tendency to forget about stuff I've won before since I always give my winnings to her. There are only two vivid memories that my mother and I were able to recall which I hope will pass the qualifications for the matter at hand here.

    • I attended a pageant once wherein when you buy a ticket that means you are automatically included in the raffle thing which will be done in various intervals throughout the whole duration of the show. I did not really care about it since I went there to watch the show but then out of the blue my friend nudged me and smiled so brightly, I thought he was going nuts. He told me that my number was called and so I claimed a couple of hundred peso bills (I don't remember how much anymore). I gave a portion to the friends who accompanied me when I claimed the prize and the rest.. well, I gave it back to my mother since she paid for my ticket. XD

    • I attended (again) an orientation for one of my online classes last year and then the speaker dude in front told us, the students, that he was going to give away free books to a few who will be able to answer a question at a given time. All of us were uncaring about what he said because we thought he was kidding lol. When he asked the first question, nobody raised a hand because he was smiling like crazy thus giving us more reason to doubt him. I gave it a go since the answer was pretty much displayed on the monitor behind him and boom! I won a book which I think was worth 1.3k pesos. Between my mama and I, I think she was the happier person when I told her about the free book. XD

    Well, I gamble a lot, if that counts. Sometimes I win, but most of the time I lose.

    Do silent auctions count? I'm usually really good at winning those.

    im completely unlucky.... even with the odds for me
    even when im working i get nothing....
    once i participated in a game the higher ur score the higher ur chances to win... guess what... even though i was amongst the top 70 i didnt gain a thing....
    even during soccer the ball always lands hard on that particularily painful for males place
    i guess im unlucky by nature

    Never, but I dont gamble either.
    Green Man Gaming has Steam discounts, which stack with the Steam sales.

    If I can drink coffee while doing it, I'll do it.

    Never won anything without exerting effort.
    But I always get what I want whenever I go for the extra mile for something.
