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

    Victoria At PCH said...

    Hi Carla,

    PCH is not a scam. You never have to make a purhcase to enter or to win any PCH Sweepstakes. Buying won’t improve your chances of winning either. PCH Sweepstakes winners are chosen at random, and each entry has the same chance of winning. You never know who will become the next BIG winner, so don’t lose hope!

Michael Ahlvers said...

I Michael Ahlvers would like to be the next big check winner of Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol at my front door because I have a broken dish washer, debt’s to pay off,that I am having a hard time in doing, beside’s a lot of other thing’s to be done. my entry number is 183 11050. I really don’t know how to enter than here. I am so broke of money that the Congress people dose not lesson or hear the people out here in the U.S.A. TO see what is right for the bill’s they write up to be passed. They already got us in debt to where they can’t get us out of debt that they put us in. They need to be like me and my family in a low income of $2,200.00 a month to see how hard it is to pay tax’s, buy gas at the prize we are paying now, beside’s the prize food is now. I need to win big so I can live. they need to have their payroll of what they get cut down to size, than cutting little business’s out of business. I’m having a hard time trying to fine work any where.
I pray to GOD,and hope my wishing to the Star’s will come true to be a big winner of P.C.H..

I am from Iowa and I have entered for some time now. I am starting to think it is a joke! I have not seen a winner in my area. And everyone I know laugh at me for trying to be that first winner in our area. When I first started entering I thought there was hope for me to win. I am starting to lose that hope. Either I am really that unlucky that I never win anything through pch, or there really is no chance to win. Hopefully, its my luck and it changes. I want to shown that there is hope and I can win. My family really needs it. Also, Iowa needs a winner!

Pch, Victoria
I too since October 2011, after losing my dad in July,we lost him due to pancreatic cancer very quickly,from changing plans to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, -and finally his retirement at 69yrs old -and 50th high school reunion to -having to plan his afuneral, We have always known that heaven is where we are heading but letting go was and is so hard for us and and so happy for dad because after fighting for life and hurting, my dad Larry is so happy and no pain or worries forever . 2011 was the most painful year!! And time to start a change for the best, I vowed to my dad to take care of mom, and help my little family, due to my health its impossible for me to work so,
Everyday , Icheck my email and mailbox and have been entering every entry possible until we are blessed with a financial miracle:)
Never going to quit trying til it happens and when it does I am going to so pay it forward in so many ways, that why I would love any prize, although im trying for the lifetime megasuperprize :)so I can’t help as long as I can! Lifetimes can be long or very short but every day is heaven sent! :) Gotta make it the best we can and I m still here so im still gonna try no matter what :) thank you PCH for every opportunity that you have given me, may God bless everyone who enters and someday maybe win and have a blast!
Pch you are wonderful people, I’m so excited and cannot wait to win! Thk you so much for the fun ways to enter and be lucky to win and get to meet the PCHprizepatrol!! :)
