Winning Number Found Report

Have you ever wondered how the Publishers Clearing House SuperPrize drawings work?

It all starts with your PCH Sweepstakes entries. Every sweepstakes entry we receive is processed with care and a secure, electronic record is kept on our Contest Audit File. This file contains each entry’s identifying numbers and date of receipt.

How is a winner identified? On prize drawing day, a winning number is randomly generated for the giveaway. If a matching number is found on the Contest Audit File, the computer sends a Winning Number Found Report to Maryann Carter of the PCH Contest Department. After the entry’s eligibility is verified, as set forth in the Official Rules, a new SuperPrize winner is identified! The wheels are then set in motion for a PCH Prize Patrol delivery, and an unsuspecting new winner will soon receive the surprise of a lifetime.

What happens if there’s no match to the winning number? Unfortunately, not everyone who receives a SuperPrize Number sends in a sweepstakes entry. If no match is found on the Contest Audit File, our computer sends a Winning Number Not Found Report to Maryann Carter.

That’s why we often say “Don’t risk forfeiting millions of dollars!” Can you imagine how you’d feel if one of your SuperPrize Numbers ended up being a match to the winner and you had not sent in that entry? You don’t want your SuperPrize Number to end up on a Winning Number Not Found Report!

When there’s a guaranteed award of a base prize or the full amount and no matching winning number, Publishers Clearing House awards the prize to an alternate winner randomly selected in a second chance prize drawing among eligible entrants. Our newest millionaire, Joseph Beane, won the August 31st SuperPrize on a second chance drawing.

So, make sure you send in your Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes entry every chance you get! That’s the only way to make sure each and every one of your SuperPrize Numbers is on the Contest Audit File, ready and waiting to be found if it’s a match to the winning number.

Good luck!

Deborah Holland

James McDonald said...

I know that Publishers Clearing House is very honest. They do what ever they can to find the winner. The accountants (The Prize Patrol) go to great lengths to suurprise the winner in person when they are in town. I believe they have 30 days to get the Super Prize to you.
I feel that for those that are negative about entering PCH, it just makes the odds a little better for the rest of us.
I’m a dreamer too. I enter online everyday and whenever I get an entry in the mail, I send that in too.
$5000. a Week for Life Super Prize would do me just fine.

when is the 5,000 dollars a week for going to be on wat channel

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    PCH Customer Service said...

    Hi Bertrand,

    The winning number for the $5000 a week was not returned. Therefore, a second chance random draw of $1,000,000 was awarded.

    All draws are awarded on the date specified in the Sweepstakes Facts that comes with each entry as per our official rules. In the event of an “Advanced Look”, a SuperPrize number is drawn and, if the winning entry has been returned, the prize is awarded. If the winning number was not returned, the prize rolls over to the next draw date. If the prize is not awarded on any of the “Advanced Look” draw dates, the prize will be awarded on the end date specified in the Sweepstakes Facts. Please watch our mailings and online promotions for future announcements.

    Our most recent winners can be found on the top of http://www.pch.com on the scrolling bar and under the “Winners Circle” link. You may also view some of our winning moments at: http://www.pchtv.com.

      Will there be another chance to win the $5000 a week for life sweepstakes? What about the $10 million prize, when will it be awarded? Winning one of the sweepstakes mentioned above would be one of the best things to ever happen to me. I would be able to buy my sister and her husband a nice house close by. The distance between here and there is 260 miles one way. Family should not live that far away from each other. So, I will enter into every contest PCH sends me.

      [REPLY TO THIS POST]
        PCH Customer Service said...

        Hi Michelle,

        Giveaway 1400 has an official end date 2/29/12. What this means is that there must be a winner of this giveaway by this date. However, we can award this prize anytime before that date. This is stated in the sweepstakes facts every customer receives.

        Multiple times throughout the year we may advertise different dates for this giveaway. These are commonly referred to as Sneak Peek Draws, Early Look Draws or Advanced Look Draws. What happens is we do a draw for a number and check to see if there has been an entry returned with that number. If there has been a matching winning entry, we award the prize and that giveaway ends right there. If there has been no winner, we carry the prize over to another date. This can go on until we reach the official end date and at that time we guarantee that there will be a winner.

        Now to address the multiple prize amounts. You may receive multiple entry opportunities into our ongoing Giveaways. Various presentations of these Giveaways using various prizes/prize values may be presented to the public (such as $10,000,000.00 or 5,000.00 a week for life, etc.). However, only one of the amounts will be given away. We figure out how to award this prize after we draw a winning entry, we look at the mailing in which this prize was advertised and that is how the payout is awarded.

        The reason we currently have many ways to have this prize award is because this adds some excitement and mystery to the giveaway. An entrant may have entries with all the different amounts advertised, so if they do happen to be the lucky winner, not only will the fact that they won surprise them, the payout method will be surprising!

        Jodi @ PCH

    Gail: You are truly not alone with this one…feeling a wee bit UNLUCKY also. I even tried REAL Scratch Cards the other day to see if I could even win a FREE TICKET.

MY ODDS are totally against me! I can still dream and hope, that life really hasn’t been that unlucky for me as PCH seems to be and I will go to EXTREMES to make sure I will always be able to say in my life this: “Ya know I honestly TRIED at everything I did—

This year,when you relive the winning moments..
Joe Beane and Jon Knostenberg both postal workers one winner from St.Patrick’s Day, the other the end of Summer winner, 2 winners in Appleton, Wisconsin ..you can really have fun with the holiday letter this year to the tune of 12 Days of Christmas..
Thanks for clarifying the “Winner Number Found Report” but I still think the BEST thing PCH ever did was go on 20/20 or Dateline in the 90′s with Bob Castleberry and show actualy what happened though the process of a winner found. I remember that because the was the days before VCR for me, and I marked my calendar to watch it because I wanted to know how it was actually done.
I think the winner on the TV Show ended up being David Koobs. It truly was interesting and everyone then knew how PCH choose their winner and we got to see Bob Castleberry’s ranch and his banding iron for his steers was shaped like the PCH logo. Last year HGTV even showed how they choose the Dream House winner and for some reason people felt better about who actually won. Sometimes people need to SEE rather then READ how things are done..just a thought with all the problems that non-winners feels after every sweepstakes that ends..

    PCH Customer Service said...

    Hey there Tiffany,

    All of Publishers Clearing House giveaways are conducted under the strict control of independent auditors and giveaway supervisors. Our winner selection methodologies are designed to be fair and unbiased.

    There are two methods we use:

    MATCHING WINNING NUMBER – Our independent auditors select a winning SuperPrize number at random. Publishers Clearing House does not know the winning number until giveaway end when the auditors reveal it to us. Throughout the life of the sweepstakes, Publishers Clearing House assigns SuperPrize numbers to outgoing Bulletins. Any one of the numbers assigned to you while the giveaway is going on could be the winning number.

    RANDOM DRAWINGS – A two-step process is used for random drawings. Incoming entries are prequalified either manually, by specially trained contest judges using raffle cages, or electronically using a computer. Then, on drawing day, all qualified entries are sequentially numbered and a bingo cage is used to randomly pick the winner.

    Best of luck in our sweepstakes Tiffany!

    Our mailings are opportunities for a chance to win, and provide clear information that:

    - the recipient has not yet won any prize
    - must enter by the deadline
    - must be chosen to win
    - buying won’t help you win

    In order to win an entry must be selected by random drawing or match the winning number selected. Please remember that while we receive entries from all across the land only one individual can actually win each giveaway. All PCH prizes of $500 or greater are awarded by either certified mail, or in person by our famous Prize Patrol. These awards are done as soon as all winning entries and prizes are matched.

    Best of luck,
    Alanna @ PCH

I am sorry, but I really don’t think you answered Tiffany’s question, which is exactly what I was going to ask, HOW do I KNOW what MY number is? If we each have a number assigned to us, you should be able to put that number on our entries so that we can copy it down and KNOW. Then we should be able to check the winning number against ours. That would let me know this is really on the up and up.

    PCH Customer Service said...

    Hi Mary,

    When entering by postal mail, the superprize number will be included on the mailing itself. When entering online, once your entry is transmitted to PCH Headquarters, it will be assigned a SuperPrize Number. Your name and number is kept on file at headquarters until Giveaway end.

    Please visit the ‘Contest Integrity’ section at the ‘PCH Sweepstakes Information Center’ (http://info.pch.com/contest) on pch.com to view helpful information regarding our Sweepstakes. Hope this helps! Good luck!

    Regards,
    Rod @ PCH

Hi PCH ! If I ever win, I will be thrilled to say the least ! BUT, just ordering stuff from you, and of course, participating in the many sweepsteaks, have given me something to do in my “down time”. I have 2 types of cancer and don’t do much anymore. My computer has given me a new outlook on everything, yes, including PCH. Just the thought of winning and providing something great for my loved one, is an OK thing with me, even reaalizing it will most likely never happen. Thanks, anyway, for the opportunity. Bob Anderson !

Well i hope im the winner my number is 1400 can some one tell me. How to claim my prize thank you angela

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    PCH Customer Service said...

    Hi Angela,

    Please be aware that the number 1400 is a draw number, not a specific number assigned to you. Everyone who enters for the $10,000,000.00 draw is entering into draw number 1400. Once your entry was transmitted to PCH Headquarters, it is assigned a SuperPrize Number. It is this number that is used to draw the winner. We are sorry but Customer Service does not have access to that file.

    If you are chosen as a winner of Giveaway 1400, we would deliver your prize to you in person. Best of luck!

    Regards,
    Rebecca @ PCH

If Joseph already won the Aug 31st drawing then why are we still entering to win this sweep? any

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    PCH Customer Service said...

    Hi Linda,

    In the event of an “Advanced Look”, a SuperPrize number is drawn and, if the winning entry has been returned, the prize is awarded. If the winning number was not returned, we will occasionally hold a “Second Chance Draw”. Joseph won on a Second Chance Draw.

    In these cases where a matching winning number is not returned, the prize rolls over to the next draw date. As the matching winning number has not yet been returned, Giveaway No. 1400 is still ongoing – which is why you can still enter. :)

    Hope this helps!

    Regards,
    Rebecca @ PCH

These awards are done as soon as all winning entries and prizes are matched. Our most recent winners can be found on the bottom right corner of our web site under the “Winners Circle” link. You may also view some of our winning moments at: http://www.pchtv.com.

1 million dollars super prize event is held on october 31st 2011 . I am excited but at the same time I got a question about the entries submitted from the time frame 8/19/11 through 10/20/11. So a million dollars entries only eligible to win and selected to win on that prize event day ? or can a 10,000,000.00 or 5,000 a week for life is included and can be selected the winner as well? is the 10,000,000.00 or 5,000 a week for life prize event only be held on 2/29/12 at give away end ?

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    PCH Customer Service said...

    Hi Rath,

    The giveaway being held on October 31, 2011 will be a Special Early Look from Giveaway # 1400 for $1 Million Dollars and if the matching winning number is not returned they will hold an alternate drawing from Giveaway # 2072 and award $10,000.00 instead.

    Regardless of the outcome of the giveaway on October 31, 2011, we will still hold a draw for the next big SuperPrize from Giveaway # 1400 on the official end date of November 30, 2011. The winner will be eligible for the prize payout offered in the promotion from which their winning entry was received.

    Hope this helps!

    Rebecca @ PCH

Rath said...

Is is possible to win more than a million dollars on the prize event day october 31st ? I know it has been announce at win 1 million dollars super prize on october 31st , so does that mean only the 1,000,000.00 entries will be selected to win that on that prize day if winning number for 1 million dollars is return? and if that was the case then that mean all the 10,000,000.00 or 5,000.00 a week for life entries are not eligible to win on that $1,000,000.00 prize event day ? so then that means all our recent 10 million or 5,000 every week for life entries will be discarded after the 1 million dollars prize draw ?

    Hi Monica,

    Winner notifications are done in person by the Prize Patrol and by certified mail. If this is a PCH mailing, please read carefully. Our mailings clearly state that the recipient has a chance to win, not that they have already won. Does this email state that you should claim your number because it COULD be the winning number? Then, enter for your chance to win.

Hey PCH and everyone…. I have a couple questions… I get emails every day from PCH that have links to enter for my chance to win. Every day I go and enter using those links. So my question is… How do I know the numbers that are assigned to me every time that I enter? Is there any way to find out what they are? I have been doing this for months day after day… Have I been wasting my time entering and not knowing the numbers? And are all the times I entered in the past useless without the numbers or do they count without me having any of the numbers….
