Think “No One From My State Ever Wins”? Yes, They Do!

Have you ever felt like posting on here on the PCH Blog a comment that sounds like, “when is it finally going to be MY time to win?” or “no one from my state ever wins!”?
Well while we can’t predict when or if your “winning streak” will start, (all of our winners are randomly chosen in a very secure manner), one thing we CAN tell you is that each and every state has absolutely had a major prize winner! (And yes, we’ve even had winners in Washington D.C., Puerto Rico and Canada, too!) In fact, just take a look at this list of just SOME of the winners we’ve had over the years!
