In January, I received my very first win notification by telephone. It seems amazing, but in all of my years of sweeping, all of my win notices have come by email or postal mail. So it was exciting to actually speak to a sponsor, and to hear how excited she was to notify me of my win.
I also received a free game download from Steam, for the game Osmos. This is an unusual game, where you play a single-celled organism that grows by consuming other organisms, but has to avoid being consumed by those that are even larger. It's a fun game, and its soundtrack is very soothing, so I've been enjoying it very much.
