A Common PCH Sweepstakes Winner Exclamation: “I Never Won Anything In My Life!”

I’ve heard it countless times as we award a Big Check to a surprised and ecstatic PCH Sweepstakes winner: “I’ve never won anything in my life!”

Then they say something like, “Well, I take that back. I remember winning a crummy door prize at a luncheon – worth maybe four bucks.”

I can identify with this. I never won anything substantial myself. I do remember “winning” free French fries at McDonalds once, and I remember winning a gallon of upholstery cleaner at a church bazaar when I was a kid.

Everyone seems to remember winning SOMETHING during their lifetime. Generally it’s something small. Yet, it’s funny that even if a prize is minimal the event is burned into the recipient’s memory.

But, believe me, nothing compares to the thrill of winning a huge cash sweepstakes prize from PCH. I have been present at hundreds of these awards – not on the receiving end of course but as head of the PCH Prize Patrol making the delivery. The roses, the balloons, the champagne, the video camera rolling, the PCH’ers in navy blue jackets and the famous Prize Patrol van “as seen on TV”: it’s VERY exciting. No wonder there are screams and tears, congratulatory applause from the bystanders, and coverage by the local TV and newspapers.

If you’d like to win something substantial like a Big Check from PCH, the best suggestion I can make is enter the PCH Sweepstakes at once! You can get started simply by clicking here on this link to pch.com.

One more suggestion: Make entering the PCH Sweepstakes at pch.com part of your daily routine. That way you’ll get more entries “in the pot” and increase your chances of winning.

Here’s hoping the next prize you win will be a BIGGIE!

Good luck!

My name is William and I have never won anything in my life except my wife and 2 stepchildren but that has been the greatest gift a man could ask for and now I play
PCH sweepstakes everyday and with me dying of Tuberculosis and kidney failure I hope that my name comes out of that box on NOV. 30th so I won’t have to wait on SSI anymore and my family wont have to suffer anymore because I’ve been out of work 9 months and live in a trailer that you can see the ground through the cracks in the floor so y’all wish us luck and we will pray that someone who really needs it will win! So lets all get back to searching for a miracle! Good Luck! The white Family!

    Hi Carmen, thank you for your loyalty to PCH! While we have many draws, unfortunately, not everyone can win a prize. Winners are chosen completely at random and everyone has the same chance of winning so you never know who will win the next big prize! Every new entry is a new chance to win so don’t lose hope!

I too have been playing for more years that I can remember. I have even played under different last names (divorced and remarried twice). I have also played scratcher tickets, quick pick lottery tickets and a few more games of chance. I have won several thousand dollars (altogether) from these other games…ten to fifty dollars here and there. P.C.H. may be free to play but in twenty plus years I have never won a dime. I still have hope and I will still play until the new year. When it comes down to putting food on the table or buying a magazine subscription you all know that no matter how much I would love many of their products, I will still choose not to starve my family.

hanging on to hope, Michelle S.

    Hi Michelle, thank you for your loyalty to PCH! Please remember that you NEVER have to buy something to enter our sweepstakes or to claim a prize. Buying something will not impact your chances of winning either as winners are chosen completely at random. Every new entry is a new chance to win so don’t lose hope!

Even though I have never won anything in my entire life and I have been playing PCH forever now I still get excited everyday I play hoping for a win. It brings excitement to me every time I open their web page hopping I will be the winner. I can always dream of winning but doubt that I ever will. It’s still fun to play the games though.

Hello my name is Diana. I have been entering PCH contests, before they were on the internet. Putting all those stickers on paper…I still continue to enter everyday online, with positive hopes that one day, the PCH Van will pull up in front of my house with my Big Check! I haven’t won yet… But one day I will. It’s been a long time now PCH, I don’t have a doorbell, but I’ll definetly see you pull up .. if I’m not at work. I have won things. I’ve even won a big screen tv from facebook/bigprize giveaways. But it’s not the big prize. So I enter and actually wait on the drawing date, looking out the window hahahha. My day will come I know it. I’ve been entering long enough.

This is good advice. I have actually been playing pch sweeps since 2007 and am more hopeful and excited to play everyday than I have ever been before. IF I WIN THE PCH “FOREVER” PRIZE, I WOULD SHARE IT WITH THE WORLD!!!
