Red Carpet Treatment – PCH Style

If you’ve seen our PCH TV commercials (and who hasn’t?) you know that a winner doesn’t have to walk across the “red carpet” dressed by an haute couture designer to star in one of our sweepstakes winning moments. No sir; our big cash sweepstakes prize winners have appeared on national TV in bathrobes, underwear, housedresses, bathing suits, pajamas, gym clothes, hospital scrubs, even bath towels.

Now these wardrobes might not get “thumbs up” ratings from Joan Rivers and the TV entertainment reporters on Oscar night; but whatever our winners are wearing is fine with us. Unlike movie stars who take weeks if not months to get gussied up for the “red carpet,” Publishers Clearing House winners don’t get any warning that the PCH Prize Patrol is about to knock on their door and present balloons, roses and a Big Check. Isn’t that obvious in our commercials? I mean, the winners gasp for breath; they say, “Just look at me! Why didn’t you tell me you were coming?”

We like it that way. We want TV viewers to realize that our winners are just plain ordinary folks – like you. And we don’t want them to pretend that they are anything else. We want people to enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes believing that they have as good a chance of winning as anybody else, and that’s because THEY DO!

So what are you waiting for? Enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes at once! And come back tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after that. You can enter the PCH Sweepstakes online every day and improve your chances of winning. More and more of our PCH cash sweepstakes prize winners are entering online. And why not? It’s fast, easy, and the potential rewards are FABULOUS!

And don’t worry about appearing on the “red carpet.” I can assure you that if you win the PCH sweepstakes you will look as happy on TV as Sandra Bullock or Jeff Bridges or Kathryn Bigelow!

Good luck!

Executive Director

  1. Hi Joanne,
    A winner doesn’t have to be home to win. The Prize Patrol will go to great lengths to find a winner by asking family or neighbors; but, if the winner cannot be located in person, PCH will contact them through Express Mail or overnight delivery service.

    What if you are a winner, and you are not home when the prize patrol comes?

    Hi Robin,
    Unfortunately, PCHLotto does not award prizes for partial matches. You must match all of the numbers in a draw to win.
    For more information on how the prizes are awarded, the draw dates, and your odds of winning, please click on the “Official Rules” and “Sweepstakes Facts” links on the PCH Lotto website.

  5. Hi Allen,
    We are glad to have this opportunity to respond and provide you with some valuable information we trust will be helpful to you and your family.
    At PCH, we are highly concerned about reports of scam artists using our name and good reputation to try and deceive consumers. Let us assure you there is absolutely no connection between the real Publishers Clearing House and the fraudulent party who contacted you claiming to be associated with our company. 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.
    We want you to know at PCH it is never necessary to pay any money to enter, win or collect one of our prizes. At Publishers Clearing House, the winning is always free! A legitimate sweepstakes will NEVER ask you to send or wire money to enter a sweepstakes, claim a prize or to pay a fee, tax or deposit of any kind. If you are asked to send money to claim a sweepstakes prize for any reason, you are being scammed. If you receive a check and are asked to send money back – you are being scammed.
    At Publishers Clearing House, we treat the fraudulent use of our name seriously. We keep track of these incidents and work closely with the law enforcement and consumer protection community to share this information. We recommend that you also report this incident to the National Fraud Center at
