I'm fairly unlucky but I would always fill out the contest forms in magazines and hope and pray, lol. I mainly mailed out for card gaming items since that's what I was in to. One year the day after Christmas I received a package. I was very confused I was like 15 I didn't order things. I opened it and it was a $150 valued box of cards that I had won off of one of those contests I had entered. I was happy it was like Christmas again, a day later.
