: Type your question here: Where did "winner winner chicken dinner" come from?

I guess you just watched the film "21"?

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away you could purchase a chicken dinner for a few dollars.

If you were gambling in a casino and you won a couple of bucks then your winnings would give you enough gelt to buy said dinner and the dealer would state your phrase as he paid you off.
