I get those winning notifications by phone e.g. "Congratulations. You have won a two week holiday in Upper Mongolia blah blah blah" to which I normally reply "Ooh thank you. Send it to me at my address, thanks" then I hang up. :)

Knowing my luck I'd win a pair jimmy choos, a bicycle or a trekking holiday.

I've never met anyone who wins these prizes either.

Has any ARRSEr won anything decent?

I've won £120 on the Premium Bonds, a fiver here and there on the Notional Lottery and that's about it. I don't go near phone call prizes. They only cost £3.50 a minute etc.

I'll only post what I believe are genuine comps like the one above from the Dave Tv channel, Welcome to Switzerland etc.

Won an all expenses paid holiday to China for 7 days, with Panasonic. Basically took a photo of a boat on a loch and then you had to get people to vote for it. I asked the Arrse massive to vote and they did in their hundreds - thankyou. Stayed in a 5 star hotel, free alcohol and free escorted trips to all the sites. Also got 3 digital cameras.

Also won a tomtom sat nav once on aviva insurance website and another in senior rates christmas draw!

Won a breadbin, used it for keeping wine in. Well known local dipso handyman once he'd finished handymanning decided to search for booze. Very tidily searched everywhere and failed miserably. It's still in use

A nice Nigerian gentleman called me to state i had won £100,000. All i had to do was send him my bank details so he coud pay it in. I'll think of you all when i'm catching some rays on a posh island in Fiji.

I sometimes win the odd tenner from those ATM hole in the wall machines.... all you do is put some numbers in, sometimes money comes out, most of the time it doesn't!

Don't tell anybody, but I got £120 from a Cashpoint. I was walking along and heard the magic beep-beep just as Media-dahling type grabs receipt, card and luggage and runs for the station, but not the cash.... I took the cash before the lid closed and rushed as fast as my stick would let me shuffle after the poor guy. He'd already gone...

I found a Tenner at the bus-stop asa well and called TSO and went to one of those "Hello, my name's Mandy. Today's special is.." and "Is everything alright?" type steak houses. TSO got a bottle of wine on the way home and I got a dirty grin on my face.

My Mum died two years ago one afternoon... Bless her, she'd opened her morning mail and won a few Bob on the Premium Bonds... still don't know how much tho'.

I once went on a TV show, with a certain Edmonds.... we opened boxes - lots of boxes.... it was the hardest thing I've ever done, I was tactical, and I prayed hard through out. I'm sure the audience chanting "blue, blue,blue" really helped, but I opened that last box, and I walked away with a penny. Had a nice day though. Shattered my faith in God, boxes, and bankers.

Won a fiver on the meat draw in my social club 3 times, ages ago when a fiver's worth of meat was alright. Drill was shoulder of lamb, 2 or 3 mates round, load of electric soup and a good nosh.
