Winning Powerball two weeks in a row ...

Correctly picking every game in the NCAA tournament ... before the matchups are even announced.

SFO to IAD upgrade going through, as a General Member.

Without knowing the number of players, it's tough to say what the odds are. The payouts seem poor, however.

Except you don't have to pay or bet anything to play. And once you've entered the first time, you can skip the video and go to the game every day.

The payouts may stink, but along the same lines, you don't risk losing anything trying to win. Other than time.

But, I would be curious to know if anybody on Flyer Talk actually won something.

The optathlon odds did seem much better.

Optathlon was amazing! Every morning before a flight I would play the game to get a one time RCC pass. Worked like a charm. Was hoping this game would be like that, but I was seriously wrong!

My dad is a GM, and cleared SFO-IAD...maybe he should play spin to win!

Oh, wow, a panini press? That's right behind one of those $50 Restaurant.com certificates on my wish list

I won one of the Alex Toys Monster Toss Game a few days ago.

Not worth the $47 they claim, but I'm sure the nephews will have some fun with it.
