#WinnerWednesday: What’s the Trick to Winning a PCH Prize?

Abracadabra! Alakazam!

Who doesn’t love a good magic trick? Cards that disappear from the deck and end up in your pocket. A rabbit that’s whisked from a hat. A lady who seems to be sawed in half but then prances out from the wings of the stage – how do they do that? 

Well, I have no idea, and good luck trying to get a magician to tell you his secrets! But what I do know is that the trick to winning the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes is to enter every day in every way possible!

Winning a PCH prize can truly be magical – whether it’s a life-changing SuperPrize like the one we’re awarding a little over a week from now, on April 26th, or the smaller prizes we award every day, like $10, $100 and gift cards to favorite stores. And with this being #WinnerWednesday, here are a few fortunate folks who will thrill you with their astonishing PCH wins!

Winning Is No Illusion! Real People Win PCH Prizes

Anitra H. comments on the blog, “I have won a few times. It shows people can win more than once. Thank you, PCH.”Anitra explains that she won playing our fun, free scratch-off games. She’s been playing on the PCH App for three years and wants everyone to know that “if I can win, so can you, but you have to play. I do every day, and to win even $10 or $20 is great, but I’m still trying to win the big one.” Keep entering, Anitra – you’re living proof that real people do win from PCH!

Erika H.(above) writes that she’s been entering the PCH Sweeps since she was 18 (she’s now 50). She began entering through the mail and is happy to enter these days on her phone and computer. Erika tells us she won $10 from PCHFrontpage and then just 6 months later, she won another $10 through the new Cash Frenzy Live game on the PCH App!

“I have been my mom’s caregiver for the past 2 years,” Erika says,“so it really helps me to be able to play and have a distraction! I am very hopeful I will win big soon and will NEVER stop playing!!!”That’s the spirit, Erika!

Amanda P.won $10 twice and says that she’s “hoping next to win a big prize check with my name on it!!!”Amanda tells us, “I have been playing online at PCH.com since January of 2011 (8 years) plus the occasional drop in the mail, and now with the PCH App on my phone.”Congratulations, and stay in it to win it, Amanda!

Last but not least, Carrie B., who was featured on the blog in January, sent me a photo of the $10 check (above) that she won playing PCHKeno. Since October 2017, Carrie has entered to win the PCH Sweeps on PCH.com (on both her desktop computer and phone), using the PCH App, and on such sites as PCHSearch&Win and PCHFrontpage, to name just a few. She also enjoys visiting the PCH Blog every day (thanks, Carrie!) “to read about the latest PCH winners and catch up on anything I might have missed.”

So, what’s the trick to winning PCH? The winners above will tell you: be persistent … stay positive … and enter, enter, enter! And perhaps someday soon, your “magic moment” – where newfound cash seems to arise out of thin air – will astound and amaze you, too!

Good luck,

  2. ever notice on t.v. when they run a pch commercial the winners always have a nice house and nice cars and live in a rich neighborhood, why don’t they ever pick winners they really need to win because they have nothing I have been entering for 20 years and never won 1 penny just feels like one big scam.
