    He wouldn't have.
    It was his destiny, it is who he was.
    No need to wonder what if? He would win it no matter what.

    But that's why it's a "what if?".

    If he didn't he never would have left Tatooine with Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon

    There would've bee no Episodes 2-6.

    Unless Qui-Gon somehow found a way to con his way off Tatooine. [face_thinking]

    I just tend to dislike most "what if" questions.
    You could what if every aspect of all of the films, it doesn't change anything. It is what it is.

    Qui-Gon would have cut down Watto with his saber and stolen his hyperdrive, and then he would have killed Darth Maul and taken his place as Sidious's apprentice, all because he had to use the dark side to get off of nasty Tatooine.

    Happy? ;)

    If Anakin lost his podrace,he wouldn't have won the spaceship parts Qui-Gon needed to repair the ship and he wouldn't have won his freedom and Qui-Gon wouldn't have taken him to train to be a Jedi, and if Anakin didn't become a Jedi then he would have still been a slave in Tatooine. Without Anakin you have no Darth Vader and without Vader you've pretty much lost the plot.

    If he did, they would be stuck on Tatooine forever.
    The deal was, if he won, Watto would get the winnings, minus the cost of the parts they need.
    If he didn't win, Watto kept the ship!

    Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan would have had to get off of Tatooine another way. Anakin would still be a slave and Watto would have eventually sold him to someone else.

    Eventually, the Queen and company would have gotten off Tatooine and beaten the Trade Feds at Naboo. Meanwhile, Ani and Shmi would have been sold to Lars and he would free them. Shmi would get captured by tuskens, Anakin would go after them, use some latent Dark Side force power and kill them all. Shmi would still die.

    Sensing a great disturbance in the Force, a Jedi dispatch would be sent to Tatooine. It would be too late, for Sidious would already have found Anakin. The Jedi would find the destroyed Lars Homestead like Luke does in ANH. They would wonder what happened, but dismiss it. The clone wars would then start.

    Later, Anakin would be revealed to dooku, also Sids apprentice. They would fight, Dooku would be killed. Anakin would become Darth Vader. The destruction of the Jedi Knights would begin. Palpatine would be found to be Sidious. A huge fight would begin between the Jedi and the two Sith. In the end, Anakin would betray his Master and try to escape, but would be killed by Obi Wan. No Luke or Leia would ever be born. Empire falls, the end. As you can clearly see, changing one thing in the PT alter far more than changing one thing in the OT.

    Maybe I should write my own TPM Infinities...

    The what if could be answered by a short scene of Qui-Gon Jinn making a side bet using the 20k republic credits on who would have won had Anakin failed to win. The coin of the planet would then be had and Qui-Gon Jinn could then pay for a transport.

    Sort of a just in case backup plan.

    Well, since time and space would be altered between the trilogies, this would cause a time parodox, the results of which would cause a chain reaction, that would unravel the very fabrtic of the space time continuum and destroy the entire Star Wars Universe! Granted that's a worst case scenario.
