PCH Winners Love A Second Chance

Second-Chance Drawings Make More Winners

Thank God for second chances! I can guarantee you that’s a sentiment shared by many, many PCH big winners – each of whom secured their millionaire-making prize because Publishers Clearing House insists on doing a second-chance drawing to ensure that most SuperPrizes find a home. In those cases when a matching winning number isn’t claimed for a giveaway, PCH selects a different winning number at random and awards $1,000,000 or more!

Second chances can – literally – make all the difference in the world! Seriously, look at how many situations in your life turned out better because you were given a “do-over.”

One of my favorite stories about making the most of a second chance recalls the oft-told anecdote surrounding Fred Astaire’s screen test with MGM. As the story goes, the testing director noted that Astaire “Can’t act. Can’t sing. Slightly bald. Can dance a little.” Undaunted, Astaire was determined to succeed. In 1999, the American Film Institute named Astaire the fifth greatest male star of Classic Hollywood cinema.

Fred Astaire’s second chance resulted in a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

If that isn’t enough inspiration for you to enter every day, then consider the story of George Snyder. Just a few weeks ago (Oct. 25), George did not win the $5,000 A Week for Life prize. No one else did either, so PCH conducted a second-chance drawing. The result? George became the latest PCH millionaire! Still not convinced? How about Boris Clinton or Robb Gonzales, both PCH second-chance winners who knew that when it comes to winning, you have to be in it to win it!

Think about it this way – every time you enter and claim a SuperPrize number, you’re not only making yourself eligible to win the featured SuperPrize, but you’re also getting in to win any second-chance prize that may become available.

Why wait? There’s a new SuperPrize up for grabs that will be awarded before the year is out. And this incredible prize of $2,500.00 A Week for Life is GUARANTEED to be awarded – no second chance base prize. Enter now!!!
