How is the PCH SuperPrize Winner Selected?

The PCH SuperPrize winner will be announced in just a few days and some folks are wondering how the winner is selected.

Maryann Carter, Manager PCH Contest Department

I’m Maryann Carter, Manager of the Publishers Clearing House Contest Department. You may recognize my name from some of the PCH Bulletins. I’m responsible for overseeing contest planning, processing and integrity, including the coordination of all sweepstakes drawings and prize awards. My staff is a specially trained group that registers the sweepstakes, keeps track of all the giveaway details, writes the Official Rules, issues processing instructions and makes sure the winners receive their prize awards in a timely fashion.

This past week has been incredibly busy for us because of all the winner selections going on. With random drawings for the 211 “Short List” DMA contest and an online-only $10,000 prize in Giveaway 1804, plus the Matching Winning Number Sneak Peek for Giveaway 1830, and a Matching Winning Number drawing for Giveaway 1831, 214 winners were selected!

In a random drawing, such as the 211 Short List and online-only $10,000 prize, the computer randomly selects a winner from among all eligible entries. Matching Winning Number drawings have a different winner selection process.

In preparation for a Matching Winning Number drawing such as the recent Sneak Peek for $1 Million A Year For Life, the Contest Department compiles the total participating universe of numbers for the giveaway and defines the eligible SuperPrize Number range for the Sneak Peek event, as well as all other promotional entry information pertaining to the giveaway. This information is distributed to an independent auditor, the PCH Board of Officials, our internal control department, prize award underwriters and the contest programmers in our PCH IT Department. This information is then loaded into the mainframe computer to run PCH’s Winning Number Generator Program. Once a winning number is randomly selected from the participating universe, we check to see if it’s from the Sneak Peek eligible range and if an eligible matching winning number was returned. If so, then we have a winner of the big SuperPrize! If not, then we go to a second chance random drawing to select a winner of a base prize, as advertised. In the case of this Giveaway 1830 drawing, a base prize of $1 Million was advertised.

Everyone involved in the prize drawings works very hard to ensure accuracy and security in how the winner is selected. Records are double- and triple-checked by many sets of eyes. When a PCH SuperPrize winner is finally determined, we all smile, because we know some lucky person’s life is about to be changed!

I’ve been in the PCH Contest Department for 16 years and I really enjoy my job. Even though it’s a lot of work, I still get a thrill every time I see the excitement on a new winner’s face when surprised by the Prize Patrol. My team and I know that we helped, from behind the scenes, to contribute to the happiness in each winning moment. With over $225 Million in prizes awarded since the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes began in 1967, that’s a lot of happiness!

Good luck to all of our PCH Blog readers and sweepstakes entrants!

Maryann Carter

Manager, PCH Contest Department

Please be assured that if you have seen an entry confirmation message on the screen that your entry has been processed properly. If you enter by returning a mailer, your entry number will be marked on that mailer.

Deborah Montgomery said...

Thanks Maryann My name is Deborah from Texas my question to you is, do I have to subcribe to every offer in order to have a chance to win PCH sweepstates? At this time I am a unemployed single parent that terrified that one day me and my family may not have a place to live. I got hurt and layed off my job all at the same time and only have enough to live on for about 4 months and unable to perchase this offers. Will that go against my chances of winner in the PCH sweepstates? i don’t normally pour my heart out to ppl but this is a question I had in the back of my mind…If my chance on winner is limited because I don’t have the fund to buy product from these different vender please let me know?
Thanks

What would I do if was to win a monthly prize for the rest of my life. I lost the major part of my Retirement in 2007. I Belive that if I were to win I would save one half and let it multyply savings the rest of my life. At my age it does not take much to have a very good life. and a ever elarging bank account would sertinly make me Happy. If I was to ever win any of you could investigat me andsee how I am keeping my word.

Edie Asbury said...

So, if I understand correctly, the initial prize drawing eligible entries are ADDED to an entry UNIVERSE of NON-eligible entries THEN selected. If it just so happens that one of the eligilble entries is chosen then there is a winner of the $1M for Life. But, if the entry chosen is a NON-eligble entry from the UNIVERSE pool of entries then nobody wins the $1M for Life & then you just choose a one-time $1M winner. Is that correct?

I’ve been praying for a miracle for the past year. This time last year I was homeless, My home went into foreclosure, my husband kicked me out, I lost my job, my aunt died, my dad took his life, and I didn’t have pennie to my name. I have since been to counseling and finally got a job, however it is thru a temporary service, so I have no benefits. I have been fighting to get my life back on track. Today I am writing this because my life is still on a roller coaster like it is going to crash again, I desparatlely need a miracle please god let it be time.

Suzanne Green-Lopez said...

MaryAnne,
I read your post about the rigorous process of winner identification and was really impressed by the amount of energy it consumes and cam across one statement you made regarding the smiles around PCH HQ once a winner is identified. You said ” I still get a thrill every time I see the excitement on a new winner’s face when surprised by the Prize Patrol. My team and I know that we helped, from behind the scenes, to contribute to the happiness in each winning moment.” I was a Creative Recruiter ( art directors, web designers, copywriters etc., and I too had that overwhelming feeling of joy for my Talent once I had found them the ideal ad agency or firm who’s family they were about to join. It Truly Is Rewarding! As to the super prize winner, I think that’s ‘one’ instance where the receiving may be a wee better than the giving! LOL!! (I hope we win before our Home FC date at the end of August.)

    There may be many entries going on at one time with varying end dates. Each giveaway is assigned its own number. Sometimes there are “Advanced Look” draws where we see if anyone’s current entry matches the winning number for the givaway. If no one’s entry matches the giveaway’s winning number, that giveaway continues until the next draw date. To see a list of the draws that you can enter and their end dates, you can refer to the “Sweepstakes Facts” link on your online entry form or by visiting http://search.pch.com/facts.

So what are all the fees they try charging when they send you letters by mail?????? ITs very confusing, and i sent the fee one time, then got mail after mail saying i had to send it back with fee after fee, if its a life changing opportunity wouldnt it be unfair for those people that cant even afford to send a lousy fee of 13.99, 12.99 or what ever fee it might be????? SAD but true, some people cant afford to do things like that, maybe thats why they wait, and dream that one day, they will really get a life changing opportunity.

I have been playing for a couple of years and have not won anything ever. That’s ok though because I figure that since I never win the little prizes I will hopefully be seeing PCH prize Patrol at my door in the morning tomarrow for the 1830 super prize giveaway of $5,000 a week for life. Then I will finally be able to purchase the cool things that PCH offers to sell at a discounted price! My 10 month old daughter would appreciate it so much!

I have been entering your contests and buying merchandise from you for over 20 years, and still nothing. I am about to give up on this. Sure would love to win something from you.

    Hi Sharon – please keep in mind…you never, EVER need to buy anything in order to play, enter or win with PCH! It is not necessary and it does not increase your chances of winning.

31 years of sending in entries AND buying products from PCH and being a loyal customer. I have not won $1.00. Tired, postage has gone UP, but still trying. The world and PCH would benefit if I won. Hope all my efforts come to fruition before I die. What a celebration and a confirmation of effort it would be!

    Hi Sharon – you never need to buy anything in order to play, enter or win with PCH…it’s not necessary! Publishers Clearing House has awarded $300,000,000 in prizes to this date, and the majority of these winners did not place any order with their winning entry! To see some of our winners, take a look at the “Winners Circle” on the bottom of http://www.pch.com or some winning moments on http://www.pchtv.com.

Who programs the computer that picks winning number, wouldn’t that be a factor? Is there an equation?

    PCH Staff said...

    Winners are selected randomly. All Giveaways are conducted by Giveaway Supervisors and overseen by independent auditors. We have no idea, in advance, who the winners might be. It’s just as much of a surprise for us as it is for you!

Starting to think the whole thing is a hoax.

    PCH Staff said...

    First, we observe all regulations and register and secure our Giveaways wherever required. Then, as a second safeguard, our sweepstakes are monitored by an outside certified public accounting firm. Finally, our law firm oversees the sweepstakes and winner selection procedures as well. We have real winners of all ages and backgrounds. You can see them at our “Winners Circle,” just click the link at the bottom right corner of our websites. Please remember that many people enter to win and only one person can win the sweepstakes. To view the odds of winning, please refer to the “Sweepstakes Facts” and “Official Rules” of the entry you are submitting.
