Do Real People Win PCH Prizes?

Greetings, fans and friends,

“Do real people win PCH prizes?

“Those people I see on the PCH TV commercials are actors!

“No one really wins from Publishers Clearing House!

If I had a dime for every time I heard a comment like one of those, I’d probably be as rich as one of our SuperPrize winners!

Of course, real people win PCH prizes! Those people you see screaming and jumping as the Prize Patrol presents them with a Big Check certainly are not actors! And loads and loads of people – of all ages, from all parts of the country, and from all walks of life – really do win from Publishers Clearing House all the time!

As a matter of fact, to date, PCH has given away $263 million! Pretty cool, huh?

We’re talking big prizes, small prizes, in-between prizes … cash and gift cards galore! Prizes that have been awarded to lucky folks like these …

Real PCH Winner

Marymae A. (pictured above) is living proof that playing at PCH pays off! This super-lucky lady has won – drumroll, please! – a total of $5,060 to date, from 20 different prizes. Most of these prizes are the Token Leaderboard and the Daily Games Tournament.

“I am proud to be part of Publishers Clearing House,” Marymae happily states, “and excited to introduce my friends and relatives, with your free entry, free games, more fun and more chances of winning. I love it!”

Nichole K. won twice by playing PCH Superfan games on Facebook“I will not give up,” she wants you all to know. “I play all day, every day, making sure I have all of the games played and my entries in. I love playing PCH games. I believe a miracle will occur for my son and me someday!”

Darlene D. is thrilled to win an Amazon gift card from PCH. She says, “I believe PCH is real and I am in it to win it. I feel that one day my dream will come true to win the big prize, so I will keep calm and wait for my time to win big.

Aaron M. seems to be on a PCH “winning streak.” Since we featured him on the blog back in April, Aaron has won his biggest prize to date … $1,000. “One day I feel I’m going to meet the Prize Patrol here in South Carolina. Who knows? It may be October 23rd for the $7,000-A-Week-For-Life. Gotta keep entering today and every day if you want to win the big one!!!”

Last but not least, Teresa E. certainly showed ‘em that PCH is the “real deal.” She tells us, “I recently won from one of those instant win games. When I took the check to the bank, they thought it was a joke. It was real, though. I gotta say it gave me hope for someday wining the BIG one! Thanks, PCH!

Are you a believer yet? I sure hope you are because real people win every day at PCH!

Best of all, you could, too! All you’ve got to do is enter!

Good luck,

What Does Being “SET FOR LIFE” Mean To You? We’d Love To Know!

Ready? Now picture the PCH Prize Patrol van pulling up to your home to deliver a BIG check — holding balloons, a bouquet of roses, and champagne to help you celebrate your incredible good fortune!

Set for Life

Come on … let your imagination really go wild with thoughts of a really Huge Prize. Imagine you’ve just become the “SET FOR LIFE” winner in our Special Early Look prize event on October 23rd!

Make Today A Play Day & Celebrate National Video Games Day with PCH

Today, Saturday, Sept. 12, America celebrates one its youngest, but most fun, holidays – National Video Games Day!

In just a few decades, video games have gone from a small fascination to become part and parcel of the American experience, with tens of millions of loyal fans. Here at Publishers Clearing House, we understand exactly what that’s like.

I still remember that day in March 1982 when my mom let me stay home from school so I could go to Woolworth’s and be one of the first to buy Pac Man™ for the Atari system we had at home. And I can’t possibly count the number of quarters I’ve pumped into arcade games over the years!

Publishers Clearing House already is the recognized leader in sweepstakes, not to mention our magazines and merchandise, and we’re also becoming famous for our amazing array of video games – all of which are 100% FREE.

National Video game day

That’s right! You can play every day in every way – desktop computer, mobile device, tablet, and via the Play&Win app for Android and iPhone. Even better – not only is every game FREE to play (no expensive game consoles or cartridges and no software to download) – but PCH’s video games could actually PAY YOU FOR PLAYING!!!

It’s true – PCH really does award CASH PRIZES every day! And we award millions of TOKENS every day that can be redeemed for chances to win CASH, gift cards, and other valuable prizes.

Start at the Token Games tab on the PCH home page and instantly you’ll have an arcade’s worth of great games at your fingertips. Play in one of our daily tournaments, try our arcade games, get matching with mahjongg, or dive deep for Sunken Treasures.

There’s always time to play one of our Minute Mania games, and every time you complete 10 games you’ll get a chance to win $500 with the Briefcase Bonus!

Briefcase Bonus

I would ask, “What’s not to love about playing free video games at PCH?” but we all know the answer is that it’s nearly impossible not to love playing free video games at PCH!

Come enjoy some of the love today and celebrate National Video Games Day with Publishers Clearing House. You’ll always be a winner in our eyes, but with our games you also could win some CASH!

Happy gaming!
