    I win competitions whenever I enter them, I really can't remember the last time I entered one and lost
    I'm naturally a very lucky person, sadly, this doesn't seem to work with the lottery...

    I am the tsr arcade champion

    I won (well 3rd) a minor televised poker tournament for $7,000 (won £600 about 2 days ago too)


    But the majority/all of phone/write in competitions I don't enter, because they are the biggest waste of time

    As a kid I won an instant camera from Mizz magaine once for submitting a cringeworthy story. And loads of pet related things (birdhouse, hamster cage, fish tanks) from a local petshop for winning their 'Paint a pet' competition every year

    I won a bike in Just 17 magazine years ago. I don't even remember entering, but I got a phone call from a strange man asking my inside leg measurement.
    I also won a packet of Berol colouring pens in Snap magazine when I was about 8.

    Today I won a a large bag of pink smarties from the nearby SPAR as me and my dad guessed the number of smarties as 1450, and the number in the box was 1447!

    Pretty much the only thing that I have ever won in my life.

    Not me personally, but my parents won a holiday to Antigua about 5 or 6 years ago. They filled some form out in some hotel we were at the year before, obviously not expecting anything to come from it, but then got a phonecall and a letter through the post a few months later. It was one of these SunSail or ClubMed holiday resorts..

    I'm still waiting for the day when I WILL win the lottery though!
