The Mega Prize Is Gone But There’s Still More to Win!

The winner has been surprised, the champagne has been popped, and the Prize Patrol has driven away in the Prize Patrol van to let the new winner settle down with his new life. Congratulations to the Publishers Clearing House Mega Prize winner: Leroy Faulks, Sr of Orange, NJ.

PCH Mega Prize Winner

I hope that this HUGE prize will bring about many positive changes in Leroy’s life.

Maybe you didn’t win this Mega Prize, but don’t be too disappointed. I know the Mega Prize has been a part of your dreams for so long but that’s not the final or only Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes. Publishers Clearing House has so many winning opportunities!

Did you know? Over $275,000.00 in prizes have been awarded by PCHSearch&Win in 2011.

Did you know? The PCH Fan Page offers multiple mini-sweeps and fun games. For example, the PCH Fan Sweeps awards $1,000.00 to one lucky fan every month. You can double that to $2,000.00 if you’re a PCHsuperfan!

Did you know? Many major prize winners never ordered from PCH! All entries have the same chance of winning.

Did you know? There is over $22,000.00 in instant prizes up for grabs in the month of December alone on PCHSearch&Win!

Did you know? $100.00 will be awarded to someone with YOUR set of initials. For every unique two letter combination of the alphabet, $100.00 will be awarded! That means 676 $100.00 prizes from Giveaway No. 1403!

So, you see, the chances to win never stop with PCH. Although the Mega Prize has been awarded, keep in mind that you are not down for the count. I believe that this quote sums it all up:

When one door of happiness closes, another opens,
but often we look so long at the closed door
that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.
- Helen Keller

Don’t dwell on the Mega Prize for too long. Wish the best for Leroy and then focus on the many other free chances to win with PCH. You never know if a PCH prize may be waiting for you tomorrow or the next day.

Great quote for ALL of us Laura!!!!!

As I know that so many had their hopes & dreams kind of burst yesterday!!

I know I was sad, as I had SO many plans in my head for that Prize & the suspense of the day was so high!!!!

But a true congrats to Leroy & his family..

    Please do not be offended, but bubble burst? I recommend you not make plans in your head regarding what you would be doing with the prize….while it’s fun to dream, that’s all it should be. Efforts should be places within more realistic goal making.

    As posted on the PCH website on September 7, 2011, the odds of winning Giveaway #1400 were 1 in 1.75 billion. This is an increase of more than 23% from the August 2010 odds for Giveaway #1830, of 1 in 1.21 billion.

    In 2008, “The estimated odds for the $10 million drawing are 505,000,000 to one.

    Do you know what this means? That’s equivalent to sending over 1.3 million entries every day for a year (and the sweep doesn’t even run for a full year).

My 13 yr. Old dtr was more excited than I was for the Sweepstakes. She would run for the Mail everyday after school and assist me in entering each entry. I think we where both just alittle disappointed after we found out we weren’t the Winners but I told her that it’s a wonderful thing to Dream and she agreed. Congratulations Leroy and Happy Holidays to you and yours!

DeLayne Perry said...

Thank you Laura… For those of us with those ‘high expectations’ the let down kinda’ hurts… However, I really must say that the way Prize Patrol keeps us in the loop on winning day by giving hints… really does prepare us & it helps because once we know that they are NOT in our state, we can psychologically accept the fact that “It isn’t me”… That does work and softens the blow. I think I am speaking for the ‘old-timers’.. meaning those of us that have entered for years and years: before 1999 when PCH came online with the entries. The blog is awesome and always encouraging! Hey! Can’t look back ~ gotta go forward! I love becoming somewhat acquainted with all of you PCH employees. Only makes me love PCH MORE…!! Bye 4 now! :D

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    Pam said...

    I agree DeLayne Perry. At least I can move on with my day when they announce they aren’t in my state! I’ve also been entering long before they went online (tho they have me down at only 13 yrs of entering history for some reason). Haven’t won anything in the 28 yrs I have been entering. Was hoping 11/30 was finally “it” for me!

    Congrats to Leroy and his family – it will be an awesome holiday season for them!!

    [REPLY TO THIS POST]
      Maureen Sousa said...

      I agree also with you & DeLayne..

      I have been entering for a long time also, but I have not checked on my status with the company… as I have had different last names along the way.. & it seems that they only have me with them for this past year on -line but did a lot of mail in also… so ALL the years since 1967 have gone down the drain somewhere…

      since I have realized that this is a contest rather than a sweeps… so there is judging involved somewhere… I can accept that.but does that have to do with longevity??? or skill????

      My only qestion to all now & this is not to be negative… only curious…. It is stated that Leroy won trhough a search & win entry… Was his number drawn & if it was what was it??? or was he drawn from a 2nd chance drawing????

      It would be just so nice to get a better idea as to what your odds REALLY are in this..

      My BEST wishes to Leroy for winning this but it would be nice to know how he was picked.. as the rules STILL leave a LOT to think about…

      I would like to know if his number was there or it was a second chance drawing & also a longer version of his winning moment.. I would really like to see & hear ALL that he said that day… Like I said before.. this was a BIG one!!! would really like to se ALL he had to say that day!!!

      And guess I am not used to this age of technology & LOVED getting those PCH entries in the mail!!!

Happy for you leroy and your family,
I know some day real soon my dreams of winning big will come true too.
I have been playing for twenty four yrs now. wow the company that gets the entry’s knows i have and so does the computer.my friend it’s a scam and so are all the other contest like the shopping spree ones and scooters mopeds.
ones i dont care i’m going to keep entering sad ironey thing is the goals intended if won change , like loss of family to share, loss of job, friends, that vac. getting that masters degree. whatever,i”ll just keep watch everyone make ads and continue to borrow the computer to submit entrys

when will the ten million dollar winner be announced?

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    Laura At PCH said...

    Hi Sacha,

    Giveaway Number 1400 has ended and the prize for this Giveaway was awarded on November 30th. As noted in the Official Rules, various presentations of a Giveaway using various prizes/prize values may be presented to the public. The winning entry will be eligible for the prize configuration promoted in the Bulletin or pch.com offer from which it comes. The November 30th winner of Giveaway Number 1400 got his winning entry from an offer promoting the Mega Prize ($1,000,000.00 Plus $5,000.00 A week For Life), not the $10,000,000.00, so that is the prize that was awarded.

    Hope this helps!

This sweepstakes have a funny way of making it seem like you’re getting closer to winning. I thought at the start of the month if I played maybe I might win. SO I followed along all month entering everyday and each email entry made me believe that I was so close to winning and that it would only take one more entry. Alas, this one may have slipped through my fingers but Ive got my eyes on that 10 Million if it hasnt been won already.

I’ve been getting e mails to enter a contest for ten million dollars, it states the contest ends in12/11. So is there something else that is going to be given away in the month of December? Maybe my question from earlier should’ve been worded differently.It stated the winner would be announced in 12/11 and the deadline was like 12/5 or 12/6.

been playing this since 1972, I am a frequent, I will continue to play the games, but the purchases will cease, only because their mailing fee is too high.We can purchase items elsewhere and not pay the postage. This was a real let down, each and every letter leads you to believe you will be the next winner, my spare time is consumed with the PCH entries. I am happy for Leroy and his family, I just hope they realize that it wasn’t a mistake that they were chosen, it’s a GIFT from GOD, their odds of winning were slim…..I pray they give a tithe on their winnings… God Bless You Always, and in all ways.

Mr. Faulk was a very blessed man. My husband and I are on a fixed income so we know what a difference this made to his family. Thank God for a company like PCH. Its Christmas time and this year we will not be able to put gifts under the tree for our grandchildern as we did in the past. This all happened when my husband had a stroke and then had to have open heart surgery. Now we are only able to keep our bills paid and wonder which will be most important, groceries or medicine. So PCH we can only thank the good Lord Mr. Faulk will no longer be faced with decisions like these. Keep the good work up and have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS.

    Victoria At PCH said...

    Bonnie,

    What you are describing sounds like a scam, but it is not the real PCH. Firstly, it is not necessary to buy anything to enter. Purchasing something does not increase your chances of winning either.

    Secondly, the PCH name and logo appear on all promotions and communications. We will never ask you to pay a fee to enter or claim a prize. There are many people that attempt to use the PCH name to scam money. If you believe you are a victim of a scam, please visit the “Sweepstakes Information Center” on pch.com to view our Fraud Protection information. You can also call PCH at 1-800-392-4190. We take these situations very seriously.
