I've won $750 and $250 prizes at bingo, both on a 'double six-pack' game. Several times i have won $100 lottery scratcher games. Once i won 3rd row, center stage tickets to a Reba McEntire concert. Sold those to a friend for $100. I once won a tin of cookies at a company christmas dinner. Oh, and when i was around 10, i won a halloween costume contest as the most original costume. I went as 'Mammy Yokum' from the Lil Abner comic strip. The prize was 3 pounds of candy.

In the UK we have a big radio station called radio one. Every Friday night there used to be a show presented by a dj called pete tong. He ran a competition called the train spotter competition. You had to identify a piece of music from the first couple of bars. I had the station number on my speed dial. When I heard the track I immediately phoned in. I won a ton loads of prizes. The post man came two days in a row with prizes. I won a skateboard,tickets to festivals and other gigs, a run DMC box set of vinyl and countless other albums.
I was on the phone within seconds when I heard the intro. It was this track.
