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

I have received 104 E-mails from PCH since 3/9/13 and I fill them all out, HOWEVER, THERE HAS NEVER BEEN ANY NUMBER with them, so I assume all my entering has been for nothing, right? It seems like you would have a NUMBER for the chance to win and not just my name, etc.

I think In spite of the fact I keep trying, I’ve finally given up the crazy Idea that I will ever win even a dime, I have entered, played your games bought your products, I go down the list of Items and realize how much stuff I’ve purchased, I’ve spent thousands over the years, well over 40 years, even though you say purchases are not necessary.. Come on PCH Is it really all about winning or all about lying? Playing your games is another joke, Those slot games, Gee tell me how do you get 3 bonuses with 2 spins? There have been a few times when I got 1 then got 2 in the second spin and the game ends, the next one the want you to get 4 with only 3 spins etc etc.. OK that’s it for now I wish everyone good luck, I sure don’t get it I guess

Just another come on to get us to spend more money. I have been entering these contests since the early 1950′s ad have never won a thing, not a “dickey bird.” That is over 50 years and I am still hoping to win. You would think I should give up – but there is always a “sucker.” I will try one last time but this will be it. I honestly think it is all a come on to get us to spend money and NOBODY WINS ANYTHING. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A WINNER POSTED? Neither have I. Good luck anyway.

Random? Not sure what that means You would think after 50 plus years I would have won something, Random leaves me wondering if there’s another way to pick loyal customers.. I have also heard that You Don’t have to buy, But with every ad I see They keep saying “An Order Is Appreciated”

Well PCH “Winning would be appreciated” Just once would be nice, Before I am no longer breathing..

Ive been playing since 2000 (I believe) and after years went by, I stopped playing when I thought PCH was going to come to Broken Arrow , Oklahoma and I started playing again this year.

I seriously though I was going to win, When I had a official giveaway letter last year sent to my home so I mailed it out quickly and never heard anything back. It was a tad bit disappointing, but I’m still waiting and haven’t gave up faith just yet.

My son, is graduating college soon from Arizona and Im still working over nights trying to support myself and also my son whenever I have the extra income to help him out.

PCH I haven’t given up yet and Im still waiting for you to surprise me at my front door VERY SOON!!

What does this statement mean: “YES – by clicking on the “I Want To Win” button at right, I am confirming that I would like to win and receive payments as outlined in the Final Determination for a August 29th “Forever” Prize winner from THIS NOTICE ONLY!”? The words “from THIS NOTICE ONLY” seems to cancel all the PCH e-mail entry’s I have dutifully submitted (usually I get 3 to 4 PCH e-mails a week) of the past year. Are they all a scam? does this statement “from THIS NOTICE ONLY” let PCH ignore/discard all the entry’s accumulated over the year from e-mail notices?

I know that everyone at PCH works very hard and that your jobs are not always easy. Especially, after reading what you do across the net.
I myself spend hours on end every day filling out entries and sending them in as well as playing all the daily games. I do my surveys which get rather long and I read all the blogs I can find for fun. Your Front Page is great for the News and I love your Search bar. I love everything that PCH puts out and I have my fingers crossed for August. But I do sincerely want you to know that I think you are doing a great job.

Richard Giroux said...

One of my concerns is the under age participants and the winners that are NOT real USA citizens.
PCH told me they done care, and if you read the explanation of how the winners are selected, notice the “short list”!

Also, I have spotted several or many games online that are scored incorrectly. I have personally seen games with score impossible to get.

Again, not a big concern from anyone. If this system is not fair for everyone, if kids are allowed to be adults, and hacker allowed to cheat on the scoring process…what kind of contest is this??

Not fair.

If people don’t stand up to unfairness in our world, then we done really care for anything or anyone!

    The short list you’re referring to is a list of 211 people who receive a letter from PCH notifying them that they have won at least a $1,000.00 prize. One of these people will be the SuperPrize winner that the Prize Patrol is looking for today.

    We appreciate your feedback. At PCH, we work hard to provide the best experience for our users. When a tournament is being played and we find evidence of cheating, that player will be removed from the tournament and will forfeit any winnings as well as potentially having their account shut down. Please be assured all scores earned during a tournament are reviewed for cheating activity before the winners are posted. All players found to be cheating will be disqualified from winning the tournament. Prizes will only be awarded to users who are playing fairly. We apologize for any concern this may have caused and thank you for taking the time to notify us. If you ever notice a discrepancy with the scoring, we want to know about it! Please send us a message using our Ask Us page: http://pch.custhelp.com/app/ask so our team can look into it.

To all the winners that have been lucky.. congratulations!

To the millions of people that are left out, or get $10…well…speak out.

No child should be in here, and I don’t believe in illegal aliens, or hackers either. Be American and act just and legal. Anything else is just not American, and I am part Native American. Iroquois tribe.

I just checked out the instant games again…scores impossible to get…and every high winner’s profile is set to “private”.

OK,,someone tell me how people get scores 5 to 10 times higher then possible.

And I know, I have beaten the games many times, with the highest possible score successively, but many, many people still got scores 5 to 10 times higher.

IMPOSSIBLE!,,,,and no one will explain it to me either!

I respect PCH too, I just want things to be fair..no exceptions.

I have seen way to many exceptions so far.

Finally, I try to play the token games today, and my virus,spy ware and hacking program detects a threat today..NEVER got that before. I could not even play…my computer says..”threat detected!”

I guess the hackers here just DO NOT want you or anyone to know that I am speaking the truth of my own experience.

and…No one has posted YET..after my post.

WHY?

Good day to all,

I think it is AWESOME that all those affiliated with the PCH PRIZE DEPT, PRIZE PATROL, and STAFF members have the great joy and excitement of experiencing the tremendous happiness you bring to ones life each month or drawing. To change a life in such a way and bring complete financial freedom to them and many of their family members is powerful and what a blessing to have such a position as you all get to experience often. My question is are you hiring for I would love to bring such smiles, laughter, and joy to ones life? I have played for many years now and PCH is the only game I do gamble, so to speak in. I would like to thank in advance our ABBA FATHER GOD in heaven and the UNIVERSE for my BIG WIN w/ PCH that is nigh around the corner. I am in it to win it:O) and I can feel it coming. Wishing all a joyful heart, a playful soul, and as many SMILES as the day can hold! Best Regards signed; The Next BIG PCH WINNER, Patti

“Godday.” I am aleem iqbal am from UK I have been playing euromillion since i was 15 and i have never won i but instead i waste my money in buying ticket. One day i saw a friend who told me that there is a spellcaster in Africa that can help win this lottery he was so sure of it but what keep him wondering is that he was not sure if he can make me win big, I say let me give a try cause i was so curious in becoming a millionaire so that flunt round bitches. so i give a try and he assure me in 3days i will get result and immediately i went to buy ticket with the number he sent me and i did just that so for sure in 3days time result was out and i was a winner of £22million. I could not rejoice too much cause i was expecting this but was not sure if it really work but now that i have tested it and it work i will be forever grateful to this spell caster and my friend. The most surprising story was that when i came back to show my appreciation of how grateful i am he told me to keep the money to my self that he can not collect money from me cause he was sent to help people across the world and he is not spending much time on the internet for he came on a mission to help people. The offer to show appreciation to this man is to spread his name across the world so that people will be helped, so that what am doing online. Do not waste time the email is (drsoula_b@live.com) NAME is (Dr. Soula) he is the only help you need.

Hi, my name is Amanda Hergenrother. I already called PCH this morning to report a scam someone tried to pull on me yesterday. I thought I would also put it in the blog so others could hear about it and not be fooled. The first time they called the number came up as blocked. A person claiming to be Mary Ann Jones left a message saying I had won $2.5 million and a car from PCH. Then in the message she asked if I would like to have the delivery be public or private. The delivery was scheduled for 3:30 pm on Tuesday July 30, 2013 and that there would a lawyer, a sheriff, and the head of the company present. When I did not respond to that number and the message, they left another message and this one came from Jamaica and the number was 1-876-275-0510. The man that left the message claimed to work for PCH, had been working for them for 40 years, and said his name was Paul Campbell. His message said I had won and I needed to go to a Western Union Bank to pay a registration fee of $299 so the check could be released to me in the afternoon. He told me to tell Western Union to deliver the $299 to Oraine James at 12261 founder Rd., Huston, TX 77035. Later, he left another message this time the number was 1-876-583-6849 and it also came up as being from Jamaica. In the new message he left he told me the $299 registration fee was required by the IRS. Then when that did not get a response he left a message saying go buy a green dot money pack paper scratch card for $299 and call him back with the number of the card. He further stated to have my receipt and two forms of ID ready when the delivery was made. In another message, he said that when the delivery was made he would be there as well as a lawyer, and a sheriff. According to him, the lawyer and sheriff were to keep things legal. They kept leaving me messages saying this was not a scam and it was a for real win, stressing that they could be arrested if the fee was not paid or it was a scam, they had other deliveries to make so I had to choose now, and pressuring me to go out and take care of the $299 before 3:30 pm after having called me at 2:30 pm. They are still calling me today. Another thing, Evansville I believe does not have a Western Union and if it does I have no idea how to get there and my Uncle would not have been home to take me until 3:30 pm or later.

Additionally, at one point they said they were calling because my prize had been sitting around for a while and they asked if I had gotten the notice of my winning.

I am hoping I win as I believe I have done everything PCH has asked of me. I am unemployed, going through a divorce after 30 years marriage so I could certainly use the money.

april harvey said...

okay I’m only 44 , but has been entering pch since i was 18 and at that time they were mailing entries to me. sometimes it just feels like I am never going to win.every time they email me or send me information I am always entering the sweepstakes hoping and keeping my fingers crossed, but sometimes I feel like giving up and it’s all a game not one day goes by that I do not respond to the emails that I get, so my question is does it make a difference if you don’t answer everyday or every now and then even qualified to be a winner?
