Well I never win competitions. I remember when I was a kid I played bingo on a holiday in jersey (oh, the fun i had!) and won £200. i spent it on so much crap...lava lamps, plasma lamps, stupid gadgets.
I also won a copy of 'Max Payne II' from a PC magazine when I was around 19. So I thought i'd go trade it in and got offered a whopping £6!
Well, 5 years since i'd not won anything....until yesterday! i won $1,000 in a poker tournament and then put $10 on a slot machine and won $500...so almost £1000 in total! :D Great timing for Christmas
