Top Reasons Why You May Not Be Winning Sweepstakes!


If you’ve ever heard yourself saying this or thinking “why am I not winning sweepstakes”, then you must read this blog! We’re here to share the top reasons why you may not be winning Sweepstakes. Find out what could be standing in the way of you and the prizes of your dreams!

1.     Forgetting to Enter Every Day!

Do you know that you can enter most of our Sweepstakes every single day? It’s true! So if you only enter once in a while, or one or two days a week, you’re really missing out! Maximize your chances to win by entering as often as you can!

2.  Using Only One Way To Win!

PCH fans should know that there are tons of ways to enter the PCH Sweepstakes!  Of course, there’s, but there’s also PCHSearch&Win — where you can claim an entry with your first search of the day – PCHGames, PCHlotto, the PCH Fan Page on Facebook, PCHTV, PCH mailings and more! WOW, that’s a lot of ways to enter! Are you using them all?


3.     Missing Important Opportunities!

You may have missed a winning opportunity that got sent to your inbox because you didn’t check it or, even worse, you may have deleted a message because you thought it was junk mail or spam. Your e-mail provider may think an important notification is spam and place it where you can’t see it, so be sure to check your spam folders regularly!  It would be such a shame if you missed out on an exciting new chance to win.


4.     Giving Up Too Easily 

 You’ve heard the saying, “Patience is a virtue”. And in today’s world of instant gratification, lightning quick messaging and information, and everything available at the click of a button, we sometimes forget that some things worth waiting for take time. And sometimes when we lose our patience we become anxious, worried or unhappy, so the best thing to do is to stick with a strategy and keep the faith AND your peace of mind. As they say, “time will tell”. Everyone goes through dry spells, so it’s important not to give up. 

5.     Only Trying For One Prize!

 Everyone wants to win the big prizes, but it’s also a good idea to enter a mix of sweepstakes and contests, including daily giveaways and smaller cash prizes . Be sure to go for all different kinds of sweepstakes, some with big prizes and others with lots of prizes to win. It’s fun to go for a variety of exciting prize opportunities! Plus, it’s a great way to stay motivated!

So stop wondering “why am I not winning sweepstakes” and follow the tips above! They can go a long way toward winning sweepstakes prizes of your dreams!

Best of luck to you all!

    I play all the games, search constantly, enter everytime, redeem my tokens, and still have not won a thing! I can’t even win 50.00 from the instant win crap! Very discouraging to continue playing, but like a addict I keep on, hoping I will win something besides more tokens!

    I think it’s rigged. Ever see anyone living paycheck to paycheck on disability, like me, win? How about someone living in a ratty old trailer, like me, winning? NOPE! They are nicely dressed people, standing in front of beautiful houses who probably have nice jobs that can pay the taxes on their winning. THOSE are the people, the ones who do not need it as desperately as I do, who are winning. My brother has 19 teeth left. I want to get him implants, but it costs $120,000 to do the whole mouth. I’ve been playing everything PCH sends me, email and postal, and I’ve not won a dime. I even tried buying stuff to see if I’d win and still, no win. I do not have nice clothes, because who can afford to buy clothes on disability! My house is not nice enough for TV and I do not have the money to pay the taxes they want you to pay when you win. SO I am pretty sure will never win. WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THAT PCH???

    I am 62 yrs old and I have been playing by mail(with my mom) since I Was 20 yrs old and havent won a darn thing but helped the economy with cost of postage stamps and envolopes, plus I have since graduated to the computer I know for 30 yrs and still no reward , patience may be a virtue , winning would make it much better. So why havent I won anything?????????????

  4. I have played all PCH games for over 20 years and the closed I got was when the game I was playing stop on $1000.00 for a minute then jumped to next spot. I believe PCH has your IP address and if you are not on the winning list then no matter how long you play you will never win anything.
