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.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!
