Playing Pays Off in Palmdale: $50,000 PCHlotto Winner Announcement!

The Prize Patrol traveled across the country to beautiful Palmdale California to surprise a lucky PCHlotto winner – Nancy Byers-Horan! The story of this winning moment is a great one!

We love it when this happens … within 2 quick knocks at the door we knew someone was home and we’d find our winner fast!  Nancy was shocked to find out that her recent love of entering the PCH Sweepstakes paid off in the form of a $50,000 “big check”!

Watch this great winning moment!

When we surprised Nancy, she told us she just finished entering the PCH Sweepstakes when we arrived! We actually hear this phrase more than you would think. Nancy just recently started entering the PCH Sweepstakes and loved it so much she quickly achieved Emerald Status in the PCHRewards Loyalty Program, playing as often as she could. She told us she was retired now and found it fun passing the time entering … particularly through PCHlotto which she found fast and fun!  I love quickpick, she said!

This fact became a talking point of the PCH fan community on social media , causing many people to ask a common question – how long do you have to enter the PCH Sweepstakes to win? And the answer is … how long you’ve been entering does not affect your chances of winning. We’ve had winners who entered for years and others who just started … and everywhere in between. So, just keep doing what you’re doing and enter for YOUR chance to win!

  1. Danielle, Have you ever!! traveled to Delaware with a TOP prize check? Just wondering I’ve been entering for 39 yrs

  2. I have a question about the new PCH Lotto. When I look to see if i won, it says I didn’t play all my cards. There are cards Double Pepper Payday, $10,000 Bowl Me Over, $2,500 More Than Before, $5,000 Unlock The Aces, etc. but I don’t know where to find these cards. They don’t automatically come up. Please help

    1. Same here Pamela. I found your post in this blog looking for the same information. Perhaps it is phased out or for a higher tier.

  3. Congratulations to the newest winner’s.
    Im still trying to win a little something myself I want to see my name on top of the list.

  4. I sware that I have seen that tall good looking man with you in the grocery store at a time when I was very I’ll and must have made a great impression, They say everyone has a twin…perhaps it was his twin. If it wasn’t comeback to Massachusetts. I am feeling better.
