#WinnerWednesday: Are PCH Winners Real?

Greetings, fans and friends!

Are PCH winners real? If you’re a PCH fan, you probably know that the answer is YES! You’ve seen those winning moments on TV and on PCH’s Facebook page.

But did you know that the majority of PCH winners win small prizes like $10, $20, $100 … as well as gift cards to stores, restaurants and online retailers? You won’t find these winners screaming and crying in our TV commercials, but you know where you will find them? Right here on the PCH Blog! Plus, I’ll bet that when they receive their checks they scream and cry as much as our SuperPrize winners!

Today on our #WinnerWednesday blog let’s meet 4 REAL PCH WINNERS of small prizes. These PCH fans stayed in it to win it – and they won it!

Linda W. (there she is at the top of this page) won a few small PCH prizes after she started entering in the mail back in 2006. “I felt like I won a million bucks,” she explains, “But it wasn’t until January 2019 when I won my biggest check to date. It was $500 from a Quick Pick from Pchlotto. I screamed so loud and cried and told all the people who said I’m crazy and wasting time that I’ve won big this time.” Linda tells me she enters at and completes all the games and enters to win on PCHlotto, PCHsearch&win, PCHfrontpage, PCHkeno and the PCH App, and she answers all her emails every single day.

Her advice to all of you is simple: “Stay positive, persistent and have patience. Enter, enter, enter! You might be one click away from 1 million dollars.”

Tommie W. (who’s camera-shy) writes, “I have been playing for so long that I’ve lost track. I think that I’ve won $10 once and $50 once … a while ago.” Tommie loves to play all PCH games – Lotto, Sweepstakes, Slots, Scratch-offs and Keno … and loves redeeming tokens at the PCHrewards Token Exchange.

“I am a military vet so I don’t know how to stop fighting until I win!!” Tommie adds. “Then, I’ll just keep going!” Thanks for your service, Tommie, and thanks for playing PCH games!

Jazmen H. is holding a real check for $10 she received from PCH. “I’ve been entering faithfully since January 2019, and I hope to win big and very soon,” she says. “I enter PCH hoping to turn my family’s life circumstances around,” Jazmen adds. “It would be a true relief in many different ways to be able win multiple major prizes, to be honest, because I would like to be able to create more opportunities of growth for everyone and everything connected to me and my spheres of influence for the present and future.” Wow, that’s a very generous goal, Jazmen. What acts of generosity would YOU perform if YOU won a PCH prize?

Finally, on today’s #WinnerWednesday blog, we have Ketrina D. who has a lovely story to tell you:

“My dad played PCH up until he passed away in 2008. I did the mail entries as well as playing faithfully online and apps since February of 2011! I have my sister hooked too!

I have won two $10 checks and my sister Eden won $10 as well. This was in the past two years. I do believe the big rewards fall in the hands that need it most at the time! God has a funny way of working that way! It may be me some day but to be very honest, I enjoy the believing part. But I love it whether I win or not!”

“Keep making dreams come true,” Ketrina adds. “I love all of you for bringing positivity into our world.”

Congratulations, Linda, Tommie, Jazmen and Ketrina! You are living proof that PCH winners are real – and that all you need to do to win is to keep the faith and keep entering!

I look forward to reading about your “winning moments” in the comments below and maybe even sharing your stories with readers of future #WinnerWednesday blogs.

Good luck,

  1. I’ve been playing PCH since graduation of high school in 1983. I have not won 1 single penny and I’ve been entertaining online for years. NOTHING! I question if this mess is real. Thy got busted in 80’s with the mail in entries. If you didn’t order any of the junk your entry would go to the dead file in Georgia.

  2. Even though I am only getting credit for being a customer since 2014, I actually have been a customer since 1992 or 93. look it up I have never won anything but 10.00 and tokens. I have been on every day all day for months and people tell me the same thing, I’m crazy. I have neglected sleep, cleaning up, reading my bible etc. It is just too time-consuming, just to end up with tokens. They say that a purchase is not going to make a difference rather u win or lose, however, pch seems to force your hand by telling u that a entry can not be accounted for if a purchase is not made

    1. Hi Lucretia, our winner selection process is completely random; there’s no way to know who our next winner will be so don’t stop trying. I would like to remind you that you never have to buy anything to enter or to win. Our sweepstakes is designed to create interest in our many great product and magazine offers but a purchase is not required and won’t help your chances of winning. Most of our major prize winners sent in a submission that was an entry only and no purchase was made. We really mean it when we say that it’s free to enter and free to win. There are multiple ways that you can enter into our many great giveaways. To see all of the ways you can enter each day, click here: Good luck to you and all who enter!!

  3. I received a $10.00 check and was afraid to spend it for a while! I finally got the courage to take it to the bank and the bank checked it out and cashed it! But I am find it hard to believe the van shows up at people houses and present them with those big checks! Even more so when they sent the messages about them being in your neighborhood! I have started joking about a blue van showing up in my parking lot. I hear a knock at my door to find out that is was at the wrong door and looking for my neighbor’s door downstairs under me. Also it ends up being the blue van from Amazon or the brown van from UPS or the red white and blue van from USPS!??‍♀️?☺️????????So I keep within for this expression to change to this…??????☹️??????????????????????? THE DEFENSE REST??‍⚖️
