Are Publishers Clearing House Winners Actors? No!

Greetings, fans and friends! And Happy #WinnerWednesday!

At Publishers Clearing House, questions we get asked all the time are:
Is PCH the real deal?
Do real people win at PCH?
Are Publishers Clearing House winners actors? 

I can say, without any hesitation, that yes, PCH is the real deal … yes, real people do win PCH prizes … and no, those winners you see jumping for joy in the PCH TV commercials are definitely not actors!

In fact, whether they win $5,000 a Week “Forever,” like our newest SuperPrize winner, Ryan Hart of Iowa … a smaller cash prize by entering one of our many giveaways … or simply a cool gift card playing PCHSearch&Win or the RealBucks Go app, PCH is the place for winners!

And with that introduction, here are some of our latest prize winners who can vouch that PCH is the real deal!

Winner Wednesday

Maria A. (pictured above) was surprised beyond words when she won $5,000!  Maria started playing PCH games nearly two years ago – her favorite sites include PCHlotto and PCHSearch&Win. She remembers when she received her prize notice:

“Yes, of course, I was loudly screaming with joy,” she says. “My boyfriend and my family were telling me that it was fake. I knew within my heart that it is as real as it gets, especially because I’m a devoted PCH player! I would love if the PCH van [with the Prize Patrol] would have come, but I still keep playing and I know I will see them soon. Like I tell everyone, ‘play PCH and be devoted, and trust me, it does pay off.”

Loretta H. is another winner who knows for sure that PCH isn’t fake. “I believe that you guys are real and real people win,” says Loretta. “I have won in the past. I hope the next time I win it’ll be the SuperPrize! Thanks, PCH!!!”

Finally, no one has to convince Patricia L. (pictured above) that PCH is for real. She also won $1,000! That’s awesome, Patricia!
