    How do you know when you have won
    Hi

    I have entered quite a few competitions from this thread and I do get a lot of junk mail but I just wanted to know how easy or obvious it is when you win?

    I have not entered that much to make me think I should have won but I also wouldn't know what to look for if I do win.

    Thanks
