I have entered to win Ableton numerous times and on Sweetwater a bunch of times where you win like $5000 worth of shit. I have never won. :cry: If I won Ableton I would def be cool and give it to one of my friends for free. (since I already OWN it that is) :)

about 20 years ago i won an all expenses paid day out for 2 at man utd from one raffle ticket in a bar but i didnt bother going

the other year me and the mrs were up north in whitby visiting a friend. we went to a local pub and entered the pub quiz. my mrs is super brainy and nailed nearly every question. we won drinks and food and stuff and were well pleased. then the landlord held a raffle for a massive basket of fruit and we fucking won that too. the locals were a bit pissed off that we'd turned up from london and walked out with all their prizes :D

$2500 on a single pull of a Mescalero Apache slot machine, which subsequently helped pay nearly the entire tab for my NS CR-5M electric upright. :D

A pair of Sennie HD25's.

I would never have forked out so much cash for a pair of cans otherwise, and they were a revelation.

They got stolen a year later so I bought a pair.

2 years later they got stolen so I bought another pair.

They have since been lost (stolen) so now I'm on my 4th pair.

I won a box of biscuits in a raffle in 1978. I got four number on the lottery once and won £88.

i guess by now you could buy a gps device, integrate it, and track the stolen ones to get them back. over time, it would pay off :)
