    I haven't won anything yet, but my wife has won an XBox live code or something (we don't have XBox, so it doesn't mean a thing to me).

    I have been playing since it was first posted here: Spin the wheel with the Microsoft Store Windows Phone app and win prizes | Windows Phone Central but as of yet I have not won anything. Once they changed it from spinning the wheel to using the demo, I have not been able to use my phone to play. Bummer.

    I think they changed it back again. If you have the default browser setting to "mobile," all you have to do is spin the wheel (click on the tile form the MS store app). If you have the browser setting to "desktop," you have to do the demo first. Glad they finally fixed it.

    Great! I always leave mine on desktop mode. Going to change it now so I can lose.

    Switch your phone IE settings from Desktop to Mobile version and I believe you can play from the phone.

    But yeah, I've won a whole mess of "Sorry, please try again tomorrow."

    I've also tried it with 2 Microsoft accounts since it was posted on WPCentral. All I got was a constant apology letting me know I didn't win.

    Yay I won a copy of Halo Reach for Xbox 360! I'm not a gamer and don't know what that is, but I'm glad I actually won something😃 My son is getting ready to trade in his Wii and all his games towards an Xbox. He is absolutely in love with my phone and was so excited to see that I had set up my own Xbox live account and avatar.

    Same story for me. Halo Reach, first time, already own it. Haha

    I thought maybe it was cause they knew I was playing from an Android phone...... Haha trying to bribe me to WP!!
