PCH Lotto – Better Stronger Faster

Recently the PCH Lotto team at PCH was brainstorming ways to make the site better and more fun for players everywhere. While many PCHlotto users love picking numbers and scratching cards to win, some PCHlotto users told us that the site was slow and would lag at times. So naturally the PCHlotto team wanted to make this better! And they did exactly that with the help of our incredible development team. The team got together and held several meetings to create a solution.

Hearing about some of the first meetings between the Development team and the PCHlotto team reminded me of the opening sequence in the classic American TV show, “The Six Million Dollar Man.” Talking about Steve Austin – the main character who is a dying astronaut – the narrator states “Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world’s first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better…stronger…faster.”

Soon after, the team got to work to build a better…stronger…faster PCHlotto. They improved the overall performance of the site using new technology while making it easier for the PCHlotto team to upload new lotto cards and other promotions. As a PCHlotto user the site should now react with lightning speed. Plus, the PCHlotto team can continue to provide you with new exciting promotions!

Do you notice the improved game play and the smooth transitions on PCHlotto.com? Tell us how lightning-fast you can pick numbers for Pick 4 Quick Cash, $700 Cash Stuffed Turkey, and $5,000 Autumn Cash Blast! And remember that the Cam’pay’n Cashout instant win game is only around for a limited time – so don’t forget to scratch away to see if you’re a winner!

Best,
The Prize Queen

My biggest complaint about it was when it came to the “scratch off card”. The site would hang and say something like, “please wait, card is loading”. So you would wait, and wait, and wait, but it would never load. Even sat my laptop aside to go to the kitchen to get me something to drink and when I returned, it was still trying to load. Hitting the refresh on my browser or reloading the page results in the page telling you, that you have already play the game. Which is not true, because it never loaded in the first place.
Time will tell so to whether they fixed that or not.

      Jodi-
      Thank You, I wasn’t really looking for a response from PCH. I just wanted to relay my issue, that I was having with pchlotto.com.
      My laptop meets or exceed the requirements listed in your response and java is enabled and I also have adobe flash, as I need these programs for my work website that have to access.
      Next time I have a problem with the scratch card I’ll do a screen print and forward them to the link provided by you.
      Again thank you for your response.
      Bobby

I must admit that I was really getting discouraged with the whole Lotto site. There were times I could practically cook dinner inbetween times it took to load! I figured that sooner or later someone besides me would bring this to your attention and as usual you fix it! PCH is responsive to comments and if you call in to the tech site you aren’t ignored. But I was entering and my numbers weren’t even comming up as having been entered the prior day even just in the logs. Now it moves clean, fast and smooth making it my first move of the day! Why not drop Wonderland for renovations and do the same thing? Too many expired games are left there. Also I use internet explorer and it bombs out my whole system after 2 choices now.

Sorry, I want to continue and have it show! PCH must have an awsome tech team and I didn’t in anyway mean to put them down. I am grateful that there are chances and hopes and dreams even if it doesn’t fly. And your browser is great but I reconfigured my system and it dropped it and won’t add it back. I miss it as my search engine. Maybe someone can talk me through why it went away. Thanks for everything. I am sure my computer and the operator can be charged with some failures!

How do you know when you have won anything on the picks? And how do you know how much it is?

I love playing lotto but I have two questions for you. First I pick numbers on four cards but when I check my cards the next day only three cards are shown why is this? My second question is how many numbers does it take to win on the Lotto game.I’ve had three numbers on several cards and four on a few others but none of them were winners.I have tried getting
the answer to my question through the rule post but it is not there or any where else I looked so maybe you can tell me

    Hi Ken,

    Please be aware that the 4th draw is a monthly draw, held on the last day of every month. The draw results will be posted on the 1st of the following month.

    You must match all numbers entered on your card to win the prize listed. We do not have prizes for partial matches.

    Good Luck!

I was able to play all Lotto games on April 30, 2011. But on May 1 and 2, it went straight to the scratch card after I played the Pick 4 Progressive Jackpot. I know there are new games for a new month, but they usually work. Any ideas what happened?

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

    Hi Randall,

    There are currently two scratchcards being offered on the lotto site. You will get one after your first game card play and then another one after playing the other three cards. So the process is as follows:

    Lotto Card > Scratch Card > Lotto Card > Lotto Card > Lotto Card >Scratch Card>$10 Million Entry

    Best of luck!

    Regards,
    Rod @ PCH

I think PCH is a scam, I have tried for a few years now, and have not won a single thing. What I real feel when I even see the commercials on t.v. is people are just playing the part of winning. I think people have more luck buying a scratch off ticket at a store and winnin the playing to win big bucks with PCH.

    Hi Wende,

    PCH is not a scam. Real people really do win. The winners you see being surprised by the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol in our TV commercials are not actors but the actual people at the actual moment-of-winning.

My bigeest complaint with the whole pch network as a whole is I want to know how you determine the cities that win the areas, are the living statis of a person. One I have never seen a person in the history ever win in the St. louis area,I’ve seen people in missiouri, just in St. louis. I’ve been playing publishers clearing house every since you were having people mail things in. In every state I have lived in. 2# I have never seen the prize patrol ever go to an apartment. Do you have to have a house to win the publishers clearing house. People in apartments that cant afford houses, Play too . I’ll still continue to play cause I have faith that God is not going to keep letting me struggle with dead end jobs.I’ll win one year. Signed Not discouraged after all these years.

    Victoria At PCH said...

    Hi Sheila,

    Winners are chosen at random, so they can come from any part of the United States or Canada. You do not have to live in a house to win the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes. In December 2011, the Prize Patrol surprised Zakiya Green with $15,000.00 at her apartment. Good luck!

Yesterday you had problems posting the page. As a result I could not get any entries. I also could not get any diamonds for today. Today I got 2 diamonds and both were try again, so I could not get an entry today. This is my favorite site but I am beginning to wonder if it’s worth it. Some happy birthday to me.
