Once many years ago I won $500 on a slot machine at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut and it was the best feeling especially when you are 22 and basically broke. The attendant put a jackpot sign on my machine, then asked me to put out my hand so I could see my money counted out. I will never forget it! All these years later I have not won more then $60 since :( Although still happy I won, what a day I had when I was 22!!!

I won $650 in a beauty pageant when I was 18 but my ultimate plan is to be a professional game show contestant. I will go on (and of course win) Wheel of Fortune and my husband will put the Ken Jennings record to shame on Jeopardy. This will happen...someday....maybe :)

The best I have done was to find a $20 on the sidewalk once. And the only "sweepstakes" type of item was on the very first bag of puppy chow for my first puppy (when I was 14) was a winner for one of the 50 stuffed animals (perhaps 3rd prize?). I still have the stuffed animal, but sadly my girl passed on over 13 years ago. :(

Or else she was the suspicious type and wondered if you'd pocketed some of it. Well I am the sort who believes that if you do the right thing, you will come out ahead in the end. And I have the feeling that you're the kind of person who wouldn't want something like that on your conscience for the rest of your life.
