    It's all luck, really. There's no amount of "trying" that will get you to win. You just enter and hope for the best.
     
    As I'm sure that you're about to hear, a lot of members know me around here as the guy that wins everything.  But then again, I haven't won anything here from EVGA since October, and EVGA contests are all that I've really entered. Like I said, it's all luck.

    Doesn't sound like the odds of winning are very good.

    I don't win, but at least I'm consistent.

    Got some stuff in a plastic box that's makes my screen turn on when I push the button on the front, cool.
     
    I think it's aliens, but I'll have to confirm with voodoo do-er on that.

    I guess if you count Game Beta invites, as "win"...than i have won a couple times.
    Outside of that, I never win.

    Chin up man... I don't win all that much of anything either. I have a perfectly awesome way to deal with it though, next time you feel unlucky just remember this: "The best way to predict the future is to create it." That doesn't specifically refer to luck, but I think we can create our own luck just as we create our futures. One day it'll all pay off!

    what you got to do is this
    step 1: ask for a EVGA item  or somethign related to what every contest you are enterd into for a birthday or x-mas gift.
     
    Step 2.  Get gift and find out what you just got. won't work.
     
    Step 3.  post a message on what every places boards crying in large pain cause what you wanted won't work cause of something.
     
    Step 4: get surpise private message from another board user stating you won something
     
    Step 5: stand there staring at winners list going "WHAT?!?!"
     
    Step 6: more WHAT!!!!
     
    Step 7: have lunch
     
    Step 9: WHAT!!!!!
     
    STep 10: you win.
     
    EVGa has given my yhe biggest prize i have every one so far.. and out of like 1000's of contest i've been enterd into.. 10 maybe i won somthing in... worth while.
     
    Just keep trying.. and trying...and trying...and......WHAT!?!?!

    The only thing i've ever won was a Xbox 360 Sierra backpack from Microsoft. It makes for handy storage for my Xbox.

    I've won a few things over the years, you just have to keep at it and eventually you will get something. I got a couple of games through folding contests recently and I was the lucky December winner of the Affiliate Code draw, so EVGA sent me a P55 FTW 200.

    Won a CM Scout case from here, plus I have been the recipient of very kind people. One person from another forum sent me an Antec PSU when I had one go out on me, someone else sent me a DVD drive, and another person sent me a Q6600, Gigabyte mobo, 1gb of Corsair RAM, and a 9800 gtx completely free.
     
    I have tried to pay it forward when I can. On the Firefall forums we started a community driven contest for fan art and roleplay stories and I put up a HAWX2 code and an 8800 gts 640 as prizes.
