I will no longer play the games or enter the drawings of PCH. It is a bunch of mess. They get many peoples hopes up to only be let down. I am in Texas so the first clue killed my Joy. One of the emails I got for the $5000 a week give away stated someone in my state would win the drawing which was a bunch of bull because the letter T is not a vowel. Whomever wins congratulations too you.

What is it? You have to live up North to win anything? Just like the lottery…. hardly ever does anyone win from Ga. I’ve been entering every sweepstakes that I come across, and I have never won anything… I was really hoping it would be me.

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
Barb S. said...

Hey, it’s cool. Congratulations to whoever the winner happens to be. I’m sure whoever they are, they can use the money. Who can’t these days, right? So, good for them! Meanwhile I’ll keep having fun playing and entering. Doesn’t cost me anything but a little time each day. I’m not going to hinge all my hopes and dreams on it because that would be crazy. Millions may enter, but only the few can win. The math says that most of us will be disappointed, so why expect something that is doubtful to happen? If I ever win big I’ll be over the moon of course, but otherwise I’m not going to let it wreck my day all the times I don’t.

I guess I won’t be winning since you stated that the state is a vowel. I guess this pch is not real. Well, I guess that I will not be playing any more. I thought that I was a sure winner of 5,000 a week for life. This was to good to be true.

I’ve probably shared this with too many people, that my 3 husbands have all died, and my life has been sorrowful and financially stressed I felt so close to all the PCH folks who e-mailed me with such encouraging words about my ability to win this huge prize!! I live in Cocoa, Florida, and I just read that the winner is where you are, in Illinois. I have prayed to the Lord to help me win so that I could be financially secure, donate a lot to the Lord’s church, and help others. Now I have more sadness to get over.

Congratulations for the winner, for those who didn’t win, God says he who help those, help themselves. It’s good to hope, wish and pray because I do, but you also have to get up, go look, I mean really stare at your self in the mirror, and remind yourself why are you here on this earth, it’s not to wish for something to happen, you all have to go out into this world and make something happen. Even if most of us don’t win, thats not what makes us happy when we wake up everyday, It should be because of God first and for most, your family, and realizing that everyday is a chance to do something for yourself or others that by the end of the day, you could feel proud of yourself. Now get up, go out there and be your own success, your clock is ticking, every moment of the hour every day all day that you do nothing of a change for yourself.

Nadene Touchet said...

Scams are designed to take your money and pch makes it clear that making purchases do NOT help you win. It’s just advertisement like magazines put out. I have played for 3 years and have never even won a dollar, and I’ve never spent money to play. Can’t afford to spend money, so I don’t gamble or play lottery. Which you have a better chance of winning the lottery than you do pch. Yes it sucks that your not the big winner, but no matter what there will always be a mass amount of losers. There are thousands of people who could really use that money and thousands of them aren’t winning either. And if it was rigged, there is nothing that we can do to change it, but it’s not like I paid to play so I am no more broke than I already was. I play for the excitement, but never think I will really win. Just takes me out of the oppressive stress that I know all of us in financial hardship experiences , even if it is just a minute or two reprieve. So even though I’ve never won, thanks for giving me something free to try my luck.

Pete G said...

Way to go Michael! It sounds like you and your family could really use it! But…I hear he entered one time and bought a magazine and won the prize. So the folks that enter multiple times, every day, who have hundreds and hundreds of more entries than Michael, but don’t buy anything, really have the same chance of winning? Seems a little fishy. I know that PCH says the results are independently audited and are completely random, but who gets to see that audit?? The odds are literally 1 in 1.2 billion (1 in 1.3 billion for the next superprize), so for somebody to win with only one entry is even more unlikely. Just sour grapes I guess, but congrats to Michael and his family.
