    I almost never play lottery tickets but if I find money I buy one with it. Few years ago found a $5 and bought a scratcher at 7-11, Bingo or something like that. Turned the $5 into $500. Have only played maybe 6 or 7 times since then but my aunt gave me one that was a $10 winner. Instead of taking the cash I just got a $10 ticket in return today and won $100. Didn't even know you could buy $10 scratch tickets...there were even $20 tickets.

    Other than that I've won a few concert tickets off radio and shit like that. In fact going to see Lionel Richie on Monday night.

    So what's your luckiest win?

    I'd have to say not going to see Lionel Richie has to be up there in my biggest wins.

    I won $1000.00 on the radio. (the question was to name like 10 things Danny Elfman did the music for)

    I also won a trip for 2 to Coachella. Air fare, hotel (very hard to get out there during that time) and 2 passes for the entire weekend. It was the year with Tool and Widespread Panic..I think Madonna was there too. This one was just a regular "Be called number X when we play ______"

    Won a raffle, and got free airfare, lodging, and tickets to the fiesta bowl. I think it was 97, or whatever year Nebraska stomped Florida

    Should edit to say I was 13. My dad won the raffle, I just reaped the benefits.

    Oh, and when I lived in Seattle, I won @ $5000 twice within 2-3 weeks playing "Let It Ride!" The trick to gambling is to get the fuck out when you make a decent-sized hit...don't get greedy!

    Have won many prizes at work in sales contests. Cash (usually between 500-1300), an iPad, iPod, Garmin GPS, and tons of Amazon gift cards, at least a couple thousand dollars worth last year,
    Unfortunately they have tightened the purse strings this year.
