Did You Ever Win in a Draw or Raffle?

By | December 19, 2012


Did you ever win anything in a raffle or a draw?

I never did! Not when I forced down one bottle of soft drinks after the other in the 80’s and looked underneath the bottles caps, not when the SMS draws started where you’d send an SMS and enter some draw, not when I opened a draw and prizes deposit account in every single bank in Kuwait, not when I  filled one thousand and one draw cupons, all the around the globe, to enter my name in some kind of draw. Not when I attended an event and held up a raffle ticket while numbers were called out. I never won, ever!

Am I the only one still unlucky enough to win anything? Or are there others like me. Come to think about it, I’m now absolutely sure before every raffle, draw, or cupon that I won’t win so I’ve developed a why bother attitude towards it. But sometimes, when the names of the draw are out or the ticket numbers are called, I have this little teeny hopeful ray inside of me that today might be the day I actually win something. The day didn’t arrive yet and my luck’s bad reputation is maintained still.

I wonder if you are one of the lucky ones who won anything? Do please share If you’ve ever won something, small or big. Maybe some of your luck will rub of main and change the status quo :p

    I never did, until this year. I won a free airline ticket in a public draw, however, I failed to use it :)

    it was based on a talent and a people voting .. not a raffle XD

    it’s attraction, really! i imagine them calling my number out and they usually do!

    hope you win something soon :)

      Hmmm… So the next time there is a raffle I should visualize myself accepting the gift and it might come true! Now I’ve heard about that before but never really thought it would work! I will try it and see insah2 Allah 😀

    Haha me neither! Nothing ever from a raffle no matter how many tickets I bought 😛 .. But it’s okay I expected that bit TILL they would announce the numbers and just like you I’d hope it would be me, but no..

    I am glad I didn’t win, losing has it’s own benefits… You never get to see the same winner ever again in some thing else in any other event, so let’s hope we are being saved for the greatest one in our lives!

  7. Back in 1999 I won a signed cap by my favourite boy band Westlife when I entered MBC’s Pops & Tops competition. I got the congratulation for winning letter but not the signed cap! I’m guessing someone took it! I’ll never forget him/her even if I turn 100 cuz that was the only thing I won in my life!

    • danderma says:

      That’s sad! Why did they steal it? I’m sure you will never forget it but at least you won something!

  8. Randy says:

    Well I was in the same boat as you up until a few days back when we won an ‘undisclosed’ amount of money from one of the local bank’s draws. So there is hope! Just gotta believe and be patient :)
