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!

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!

  3. My gut tells me I want my phone back. First thing in the morning, and until I go to bed at night. 24/7 pch this, that, or other. Yeah, I understand the philosophy; you can’t win if you don’t play. I also know that odds are(1in2.64billion)that I’ll never win, plus, you must know that people engage with your games while driving. Driver distractions are many, and that concerns me. By the way, I played pch, my wife and I through the 80’s and some in early 90’s. P.C.H., you were the only winner. I’m no longer going to let my free time be controlled by a non realistic chance of winning a single penny, and I have to get this monster out of my phone.

  4. I play before an every PCH games 3-5 hours a day, 356 days a year. I’m tired to spend so much time and deside to play only Sweepstakes, Instant win, Scratch Offs, Vip, Search and Frontpage, I spend millions tokens to win on the Rewards, still nothing. Now I’m 77 y.old this is my last game with you on April 28/2017. I remember playing Bingo, and never letter O show up. I ask you why?- but never receive the answer. I been very loyal to you, but time to say Enough.

  6. I’ve been playing for 3 years. Why I’m not winning? I don’t like that I be playing these games and still didn’t win and got to play the games over again. Need to win something. Feel like I’m just playing to just play. I want to win. And why I don’t have my Samsung ipad? I redeemed some tokens. And still don’t see it yet. What’s the hold up for me getting my new iPad to?
