Won about £500 in Hong kong at the Happy Valley horse Races!! Put on £2 on 250-1 total long shot...it won!

This does not make up for my awesome losing streak at Ascot though!

I once one €1750 on the Maynooth Town FC lotto. I'd just finished the college year and hadn't even enough money to get the bus to collect the cheque! Couldn't have been better timed- it allowed me to head to London for the summer and spend some interesting weeks working at the Royal Festival Hall to pay for the following year at college.

You must play some serious CS to win that kind of cash. What clan are you in?

I won a jar of Brillcream once in a raffle, because I am as bald as a coot I put it back in for a re-draw. Guess what? I won it again.. I think it was someone taking the mickey. Also, when stationed in Hong-Kong we used to go to the big Tombola/Bingo session in the China Fleet Club every Friday night, where it was serious money, four of us used to go regularly and never got a sniff. Then owing to being on duty one friday night the others went without me and won thousands of dollars. I certainly took some stick over that and it took a long time to get over the name of "Jinx" ..Bingalau..
