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

Executive Vice President

PCH Publishers Clearing House

Activate the Bonus Prize Stamp next to your name inside now and follow the instructions carefully if you want to win a Lifetime Prize in addition to the Grand Prize Bonus! These are my instructions, but, it does not say
“How” to activate the Respond now bonus prize stamp. It doesn’t seem to happen upon opening the “Respond Now” button. I’d sure love to win, how do I do it?

I always wondered. being old I pictured someone pulling a number out of a bucket and if no winner , repeating that move til a number was found, thereby assuring that there would be a winner, no matter how many times someone had to draw a number.Modern electronics don’t come easily to we old timers, but we try.

Heck yeah! The “winning number found report” I just read explained to me a little bit more understanding. Soooo…. My advice would to enter every time it tells u to u to enter. I do any way cause I’ve entered into so much at pch its just easier for me to reassure my self that I’ve got it all covered. Anyway, thanks, pch for that info. That was reassuring. I am so looking forward to February for the drawing. This is my first time I’ve committed myself to something like this and I actually enjoy it. I drink my coffee every morning and play my lotto and play my games. I read and write blogs from time to time. Check my emails and my Facebook. Lol. Anyway, pch has become part of my daily routine. Well, I bid a du. # GOOD LUCK TO ME!!!

In life some times the relevance of life is very clear but also pitch black and it seems like the harder u fight to clear it up the darker it gets, by events that has no concern to the situation at hand only to try and distract u from staying focus on your goals, I’ve been fighting a hard and long fight and physically I’m getting tired,mentally I’m still strong, and spiritually I feel if god is for u who can be against u!!!!
