The $5,000 A Week “Forever” Prize Winner Michael Miller Is Set For Life!

Michael Miller, Publishers Clearing House’s newest $5,000 A Week “Forever” prize winner, is SET FOR LIFE!

Completely shocked.

MichaelMiller1

That’s the best way to explain Michael Miller’s reaction when the Prize Patrol surprised him in Moro, Illinois with a Big Check for $5,000 A Week “Forever” last week.

I mean he was practically speechless! Over cries of delight from his mother and shrieks of excitement from his sister, 26-year old Michael stood motionless with his jaw dropped open. Watch the winning moment for yourself now…

Some people were surprised by Michael’s quiet excitement…but let’s not forget, the real surprise (and a very big one, I might add) was the Prize Patrol showing up at his doorstep, completely unannounced, telling him that he’d won $5,000 every single week for the rest of his life! (Plus, after that, $5,000 a week for the life of someone he chooses!)

Now remember everyone, Publishers Clearing House NEVER lets its winners know we are coming in advance…so the reactions you see are purely genuine. I have to say…if the Prize Patrol rolled up to MY door with a surprise like that, I’d have trouble finding my words too! How about you…how would you react?

MichaelMiller2

As someone who saw it all firsthand, I can tell you that the winning moment was absolutely wonderful. I was lucky enough to join Todd Sloane, Dave Sayer and Laura Wolfe on the road, and it was a trip I will never forget. Seeing the reactions of Michael’s family members was truly heartwarming. His mother, sisters, cousins and neighbors could not have been more proud, and they all gathered around him to show their support.

As for Michael, at first all he could say was “I’m very surprised.” But once he got over the initial shock, he was jumping up and down and exclaiming “I’m set for life”. When asked what he looked forward to most, Michael said buying a new car and helping his family.

Michael is our second-ever “Forever” prize winner, and our youngest-ever SuperPrize winner. You can read more about his touching winning moment from FOX News.

Want to get the surprise of YOUR life and a visit from the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol? Then remember one thing: enter every single chance you get! You too, could become “set for life” like Michael!

Fingers crossed for all of you,

Amanda C., PCH Creative

Blake Robinson said...

Why am I still getting emails giving me a deadline to respond to win 5,000 a week forever? Are you guys doing another one or is it something that someone has overlooked? Also, when is the 10 million dollar prize going out? Sept. 17th is what’s in my head but I’m not sure because I get it mixed with deadline dates.

    Hi Blake, you’re receiving emails for the $5,000 A Week For Life sweepstakes, which is completely separate and not the same as the $5,000 A Week “Forever” prize that was awarded to Michael Miller of Moro, IL on August 29, 2013. We’re so sorry for the confusion! For further details about this sweepstakes, please refer to the Official Rules.

Hi Blake. I also get those emails to, I reply to them anyway. I also thought that the 5000 a week was over and the 7000 a week was the new one. I’m also confused.

A lot of people I know thought that M.M reaction was weird. But I didn’t my father would have react the same way,people show emotions differently. I think he was in shock. However I would have fainted twice and jumped 10 feet in the air because I wear my emotions on my sleeves. (Let’s go lucky Illinois! )

Hi! Congrats Micheal! Michaels’ reaction was just that, his reaction! As much as I write on pch, I’m quieter in person. I love to imagine the Prize Patrol driving up and what my reactions would be. But let’s face it, even though we imagine it, if it came true, we still wouldn’t believe it was happening! I might stand there in a daze as if I didn’t know who they were! Or I might be a Gilligan and start running around! I can’t judge anyone elses reaction, my imagination has brought on too many of my own. And when it does really happen, I have a feeling I will have a total different one than I ever imagined!! The Prize Patrol as always did a great job. And Amanda, you look like you really enjoy doing it also!

Tahisha Bullock said...

I would like to ask a question. What method did Michael Miller win the $5,000 per week “forever prize”? Is it SEARCH & WIN, EMAIL ENTRY, PHONE ENTRY, MAIL-IN ENTRY, PCH.COM ENTRY, PCH LOTTO OR PCH GAMES ENTRY?

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
Tahisha Bullock said...

I would like to ask another question. If you miss a day of not entering PCH does it lessen your chances of being randomly picked. Like when they say the deadline to enter PCH is 2 days for example $5,000 per week “forever prize” Does my final entries before the deadline would reflect oppose to entering every single day. In other words. Is my previous daily entries more important than entering few days before the deadline?

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    PCH Staff said...

    Hi Tahisha, all of your entries are counted the same. Entering one day is does not increase or lessen your chances of winning as opposed to entering another day or the next day. Winners are chosen completely at random so everyone has the same chance of winning a prize!

I always love watching the various reactions people have when the Prize Patrol shows up! I think being initially completely speechless is very understandable! I have NO idea how I’d react. Would love to find out though. LOL

After I saw the video of Michael being surprised and in the clip he says “Set for life”. That almost made me cry. That is exactly how I would feel.
The woman who answered the door was so surprised, she almost closed it.
Prize Patrol please smile when someone answers the door. It might helped them return the smile and not be so scared or shocked.

Hi pch.

and pch all team members those are given us specially you are doing so good and nice and superb . love to remembering time to time .that is why i would like to pay thanks for special being for us.
now a days in the world there are MANY problem increasing and grab to them by neck .so every one want to win the sweepstake .just because its a free chance thoroughly so i m trying so hard to got this .

if God bless me then i will be most luckiest person of the world in this world.
many of countries are not awarding the minority person .and instead they are the citizen of the United State .i know they always love to win and change their lives through the sweepstake platform .but i saw from the many sites a large number of winner they are mostly black and red and white but many of them missing while they are the part of USA .

i am un able to understand why the ignoring them are they are not part of state.are they are belonging before the settlement of asian or mideast .or indian so .i hope pch will not do that just like the other lotto sites .so many of minority are awaiting to win and love to change their life.

because as a human being they deserve to win .many of peoples have not the sufficient time to play and follow the sweepstake site but they are playing its prove that they love it and they want to win the equal part as others have playing and winning so pch team will help to make assure that they will must enlisted them in the winning lottery list .its is no matter competitor are winning are losing the game.
but they come strong by this though they are treated equally as the black .red and white guys and citizen .

so its my request please enlist my name in coming draw may i win the sweepstake .
i will be thank full to all the team .
and i am so happy pch is true sweepstake game platform .one day i will got the prize little or big.
and best of luck for winner of past and future.

I would like to win the $5,000 a week for like so bad just like Michael Miller did. I’ve watched his video many times, I think it’s interesting. It seems like he is just like shell shocked in a dream state. His mother and sister are crying with joy and he seems like he’s just overwhelmed by the whole situation. All of us act differently when a huge surprise happens to us. I think its interesting and it does make me wonder how I would act when faced with the same situation. I think Id be shell shocked as well. 26 and suddenly you wake up and everything has changed, your life just radically changed in an instant, no more worries about money your set for life. Its crazy to imagine! Man, I sure with I could experience this type of financial windfall, it would be amazing. Im Happy for Michael Miller. I wish him the very best in life.
