Recently, as I surfed the TV listings, I stumbled upon a movie called “The Jackpot” from 1950 to be shown that evening on the Fox Movie Channel. The movie’s descriptive blurb said that “An average guy [played by Jimmy Stewart] wins a lucrative radio show contest and soon finds his life becoming very complicated.”
From this you can see that for over six decades (and maybe longer!) there has been this notion that winning a huge cash prize can have a “downside” or can “complicate” one’s life. Well, I’m here to tell you that notion is crazy! In my 30 years of awarding prizes to winners of the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes, I have not known anyone to complain. Yes, phone calls and letters may come from people the winner doesn’t know; but they are expressions of “Congratulations” and joy in the affirmation that real people really win really huge cash prizes. There are no complications and no strings attached if you’re a PCH jackpot winner – unless you consider wrestling with the question “How do I spend all this money?” a complication.
I’m always amazed that so many people are skeptical of their chances of winning the PCH Sweepstakes. After all, we’ve been showing actual winning moments in our TV commercials for years and years. The people you see in our ads are REAL people – like YOU. I’ve asked professional actors to give me their best shots at how they would react to a PCH Prize Patrol visit, and – quite honestly – their attempts are pitiful.
So “be not afraid.” Don’t put off entering the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes because you think real people don’t win or that being a PCH jackpot winner will add complications your life. No, that’s just not so. And don’t think that you haven’t got the time to enter sweepstakes. It’s easy!

Wishing you the best of luck!

P.S. I watched “The Jackpot” out of professional interest. Granted, the movie’s $24,000 prize would be worth $223,000 today; but the movie is still extremely dated and not so hot. I’d give it one star.
