So far not a bloody thing!!!  >:(

I think roll up the rim has the worst odds in any of these little "look under the cap" sort of deals or anything.... whats it supposed to be like 1 in 3 or 1 in 5 or something? its gotta be actually about 1 in 20.

The best thing I've won so far is a coffee as well.

Free doughnut.  Out of 12 cups so far.  OH, and it wasn't even won by me really.  Someone else gave it to me.

I think all you guys would have better luck with winning anything more than one of those "meal prizes" by playing Lotto 6/49 instead.  ;D

Guy in front of me won an ipod, he jumps up in timmies about 20 minutes after we were standing in line and shouts I won an ipod, so he goes up to the counter where they tell him he will need to drive to the city to claim that sort of prize, needless to say he was not happy cause him driving his big truck all the way to the city would cost him just as much as if he were to buy one here in town haha
