    I won $850 in a slot machine in Atlantic City,NJ with one push of the button. It was one of these new digital slot machines and all I kept doing was pushing the double down button and won jackpot. Took my winnings, scooped up the wife and kid and had a great day on the boardwalk..

    According to my latest email winning notifications, I've won $14,000,000.00US today alone.

    For the month of July my email address has won over $4,680,000,000.00US

    Anyone interested in bidding on this most valuable email address? ;)

    I got $45 from an instant win "Banco" ticket.

    That's about it, though.

    Probably about £20 from the lottery.

    I don't win nearly as much as people seem to be willing to send to me. It's funny how they don't know my name but are willing to send me millions.

    Five frickin' dollars - and I traded the winning ticket in for five losing ones. So, I suppose, I didn't even "win" $5. I've won $2 - $5 lots of times.

    My best friend bought me a JOKE lottery ticket once when we were on a road trip, which said I had won $25,000 when I scratched it off. I know what it's like to FEEL like you've won $25,000. That was pretty cool...but then, I also had to deal with the fact that I didn't win $25,000 about 30 seconds later. I have never seen her laugh so hard in my life. She says the look on my face was priceless.

    I've only won buttons on lotteries but I've won two nice prizes through raffles - one was a choice of outfits from Ika Boutoni (a designer). I gave that prize to my mum and she chose a suit that she wore to a wedding, saving her some bucks on a new outfit.

    Better than that though, I won flights and accommodation in a five star hotel in Cairns, Australia for two weeks. When we got there we were in the best suite in the hotel but there was no smoking so we asked to be downgraded. LOL.

    Even better, we went wild on the last night and slept through the wake up call, missing our plane back to Hong Kong. So we decamped to a backpackers place for another couple of days. Bit of a comedown after the Princess Suite.

    My parents and grandad were part of a pools syndicate (sports betting) that won £1.3 million about 10 years ago.

    The money is all long gone and my parents are now divorced - that's what happens when someone isn't satisfied in having plenty.

    The great thing I got out of it was my mum's old PC. Beginning of a long road to computer nerd-dom. :)
