Wondering how our “Special Early Look” works? Howie Can Help!

Hi fans!

We know a lot of you have questions, and we want to give you the answers! So to do that, we’ve started a new video series called “Howie Helps”! These videos feature Howie from Publishers Clearing House answering all kinds of questions from our beloved PCH fans – like you!

Today we’re sharing our first-ever Howie Helps video on the blog, and the topic is “What is a Special Early Look?”  Watch Howie’s video now!

As Howie explained in his video, first, our Contest Department makes sure that all eligible numbers are loaded in our Winning Number Generator. Once a winning number is randomly selected, PCH Officials check to see if there’s a matching number among the timely returned entries.  If there is, we’ll award the top prize for that event. If there’s not, the top prize amount is not awarded, and we’ll go to a Second Chance drawing and award a smaller – but still impressive! – amount.

So what do you think everybody? Did that help explain how it all works? We certainly hope so! And remember, if you have any other questions about Publishers Clearing House, just let us know! Jot it down in the “Comments” section below.  Howie could answer it in his very next video!

We’re all ears …

Marybeth H.,


P.S.  Speaking of major, life-changing prizes, there are only 7 days left to go for the $7,000 A Week For Life prize  authorized for award on April 30th – so make sure you enter today and every day right through the 21st!


 P.P.S. Danielle Lam of the Prize Patrol will be announcing the results of the Special Early Look for our April 30th SuperPrize Event right here on the blog next week! So be sure to check back!

  3. PCH Executive Team,

    This “Commitment Agreement” GUARANTEES an August 31st “Forever” Prize Winner will be paid $5,OOO.OO A Week For Life, and after that, those payments are to continue for the lifetime of a beneficiary of the winner’s choosing upon the timely registration of a matching winning number. Then, after that, a beneficiary of my choosing will continue to receive those same weekly lifetime payments!

    My brother and I are disabled and it would make life so much easier. That would ensure that I can have a home built for us and sustain us and my home for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win. Bless you!!!
