Miami Area Woman Announced as New Publishers Clearing House SuperPrize Winner

A Super Day – With a SuperPrize for a Super Winner in a Super City!

Just weeks after the Super Bowl in Miami, another SUPER event happened in that super city — on Thursday, February 25th. When the day was over Marilyn Ragin was as supremely happy as the Indianapolis Colts on Super Bowl Sunday. The reason? Publishers Clearing House announced that she is the newest Million Dollar SuperPrize winner!

In a word, Marilyn’s surprise winning moment was AWESOME. I’ve led our PCH Prize Patrol on hundreds of in-person awards to winners’ homes; but this has got to be one of the best ever.

Our caravan of vehicles – including the Prize Patrol van, a second Prize Patrol car, a satellite truck, and vans holding our cameraman AND crews from CBS, FOX and The Learning Channel’s “Lottery Changed My Life” show – all rolled to a stop in front of the Ragins’ sunny yellow house. Everyone piled out and up to the door – but, alas, Marilyn wasn’t home. “She’s not here,” her husband Moses told us. “But I know where she is.”

With that our whole caravan drove several miles to the Ragins’ church where Marilyn’s large group of sewing circle friends was having a special luncheon. I’ve gotta tell you: the luncheon became a lot more special when we marched in – in our blue PCH Prize Patrol blazers with a huge bouquet of roses, rainbow colored balloons, video cameras, blazing movie lights AND the Big Check. Women started screaming, children in attendance jumped up hoping to get a balloon. Everyone stopped eating as their mouths fell open in amazement.

“We’re looking for Marilyn!” I announced for all to hear. There was a momentary silence as all eyes turned toward the middle of the room where a woman who was clearly well-known and beloved by all stood up. Her arms went up in the air in praise as she recognized that her prayers had been answered. Then pandemonium broke loose. Several people said to us, “I’ve seen this PCH winning moments on TV, but I never thought it was real!” Others recognized me personally and said, “Well, I never expected to see you in person like this!”

Marilyn was simply overwhelmed as she greeted well-wishers and media reporters with “Hallelujahs” and tearful expressions of thanks for answers to her prayers. Moses stood nearby in a happy daze. Excited cell phone calls were made. Before long daughter Darlene arrived, and more screams and tears followed. All in all it was an event that nobody present will ever forget. You can get a sense of it all by watching the video at PCHTV.com and reading more about it in the About.com: Contests and Sweepstakes article entitled “Publishers Clearing House Announces their Newest Million-Dollar Winner!

As reported in a CBS news article, about this cash sweepstakes prize award, Marilyn Ragin is 53 years old and has played the PCH Sweepstakes for over 10 years. By the reaction of prize witnesses at the sewing circle luncheon who declared they were now believers too, there may be some more Miami area residents filling out a PCH Sweepstakes entry in the future, hoping to be announced a new Publishers Clearing House SuperPrize Winner – just like Marilyn.

Yours truly,

Dave Sayer

      Hi Pamela,

      The call you received is a scam. If you are contacted and asked to pay any amount, for any reason, to claim a prize, you have not heard from the real Publishers Clearing House. Please call us at our toll-free number 1-800-392-4190 so that we can do a scam report.

      Regards,

    We do not yet know who the winner is for the February 29th prize. Only the Prize Patrol will know in advance so that they can make travel arrangements to surprise the winner. The rest of us will find out who the winner is on February 29th!

My parents got a letter, telling them they won this years million, but they are sitting at home waiting, I was wondering if a winner has been named yet?

You said that no winners get letters before hand. My parents have been sending back those things they get in the letter for over 30 years. I hope they didn’t get scamed! They really need the money badly.

    Hi Debra,

    211 people received letters notifying them that they were the winner of at least $1,000.00 from Publishers Clearing House. One of those people is today’s SuperPrize winner. The Prize Patrol is on their way to surprise the winner right now!

BORIS DAYENMAN said...

I am very upset due to last result of your sweepstakes. I am a member of PCH almost six years. During this time I made huge numbers of entries and orders, but still did not get even one penny. This is unfair. I made decision not participate in your sweepstakes anymore. It is only to waste my time and money.

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    Victoria At PCH said...

    Hi Boris,

    PCH is very fair. PCH Sweepstakes winners are chosen at random, and each entry has the same chance of winning. You never know who will become the next BIG winner, so don’t lose hope!
