In What States Has Prize Money Been Awarded? Question Answered!

Prize money has been awarded to prize winners in all 50 states! But read on to find out if your state has ever had a SuperPrize winner!

The other day, Amanda C. stopped by my office to tell me about a question that was posted on her recent blog, “Wish Upon a Lucky Star And SuperPrize┬« Dreams Could Come True.” The question was from Annamaria S., who said, “I am from New Mexico. Has anyone ever won from here?” When I heard this, I decided I had to write a blog myself, because I’m so happy to tell you that…

Yes, Annamaria S., there have been Publishers Clearing House prize winners in all 50 states! Ever since the launch of our very first sweepstakes in 1967, we’ve given away millions of dollars in prize money to folks from every state in the country! The Prize Patrol sure has been busy!


But which states have had a SuperPrize Winner? We actually have a map here at PCH Headquarters that represents all the states in which $1,000,000.00…$2,000,000.00… …$10,000.000.00…AND MORE!…in prize money has been awarded in over the years. As the map shows, to date, the Prize Patrol has awarded SuperPrizes to lucky prize winners in twenty-seven states, including…

  • Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida
  • Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland
  • Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri
  • Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New York
  • North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania,
  • Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Washington

Is your state on the list above? If not, I encourage you to enter today for your chance to become its very first SuperPrize winner and get a special visit (and a whole lot of prize money!) from the Prize Patrol!

Remember: our winner selection process is completely random and unbiased, and all entries have an equal chance of winning. North, East, South or West, prize winners can come from anywhere! Wherever you live, it’s just as possible for you to become a PCH SuperPrize winner — like our two newest millionaires, Jason Clark of Pocahontas, Arkansas, and Leroy Faulks of Orange, New Jersey — as it is for every entrant.

Best Wishes!

    My mom was very heavy in to PCH when I was young all the way up until I was grown . I guess its something she passed on to me cause now I’m hoping to win. Maybe its false hope but the way our now world is, false hope is still better than no hope!thun

  2. I have high hopes also of praying for a big life changing event and fill out lot’s of the free offers but never nothing in the mail for even that! I pray this I the year for me in Alabama.Thanks for my comment.

    I can’t help but to notice all the faithful people that have been loyal to PCH over the years. Somehow I think that possibly PCH should have a way to track all these people and create a loyalties club. Face it, everyone wants to be a winner and this is America! Even if everyone can’t win the big prize, couldn’t you show some good faith and at least recognize your lifelong friends with a little something? I’m sure a meal at McDonalds would be appreciated and you guys would be famous forever! You wouldn’t have all these negative, sad reviews and comments going on. I hate to see people hurt and it really sounds like these people gave you a lot of their time. They took the courage to write their sadness and frustration down for you to read. These are real feelings by real people. Remember, when you give just a little, you can end up receiving a lot and if PCH could keep in mind the loyal people that made them so successful, then PCH could honestly live the American Dream. Please exclude me from the loyalty program, I have only been playing about 6 months. Thank you for allowing me the freedom of speech to express myself.

  4. it is really a let down when you spend time and money with publishers clearing house and you do not get anything and they are bad about charging you for orders you did not order.

    My grandma, dad and me played for years bought things and just got high hopes… But it is a gamble but just depressed when it really sounds like you going win and of course you don’t. Oh well…
