Do People Actually Win with Publishers Clearing House?

Despite the fact that Publishers Clearing House’s history stretches all the way back to 1953 and we have been running some of the most popular sweepstakes in the nation since 1967, there are still scores of folks who wonder:

Do people win Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes, giveaways, and prizes?

To spoil the big surprise, the answer is unequivocally yes, people do indeed win. The truth is that thousands of people have won big with PCH. In fact, we have awarded over $553 million in cash prizes since 1967, and we are still handing oversized, multi-million dollar checks to blessed PCH fans to this very day. Just take a look at our recent PCH winners list!

Moreover, even if people are still in the dark about the life-changing opportunities that PCH offers, they likely still have important questions, such as:

  • How are Publishers Clearing House winners notified?
  • How does Publishers Clearing House pay their winners?
  • How am I supposed to fit this big check into the ATM machine?

Okay, that last one’s a joke.

All kidding aside, today, we are going to clarify some of your most important PCH questions, such as those listed above.

 With the most important one of “do people win Publishers Clearing House?” out of the way, let’s go ahead and tackle the other two queries.

How Are Publishers Clearing House Winners Notified?

If you are going to play PCH games and enter into our amazing giveaways, it is critical to ensure that you understand how Publishers Clearing House Winners are notified so that you can protect yourself against PCH impersonator scams.

As it stands, there are a couple of different ways that PCH winners are notified. First, if you have been awarded a prize of $10,000 or less, we might opt to notify you via overnight express carriers such as UPS, FedEx or USPS Express Mail or possibly via email.

That said, our major prize and SuperPrize winners will never receive an email. Instead, these folks are notified live and in person by our world-famous Prize Patrol so that we can be there with you during your big moment and capture it all on film!

Also, it is important to be aware that there are never any strings attached to winning with PCH. Therefore, if you are asked for any bank information, fees, taxes, or charges of any kind, it is likely a scam that you should report to Publishers Clearing House.

Knowing that, let’s take a quick peek at some folks who were recently surprised in-person by our Prize Patrol.

Big PCH Winners

In the past several months, numerous PCH fans have gotten that life-changing knock at their door, including Ralph, a Hawaiian resident, who received a big check of $100,000 from our Prize Patrol.

Just a few months later, we handed out 10 times that amount to our friend Mark Adair, who won $1 million on April 1st, 2022. Thankfully for him, it wasn’t an April fool’s joke.

These are just two of the thousands of lives that have been transformed by playing PCH.

Here is how you can potentially join Ralph and Mark in the PCH winner’s circle.

  5. I would like to say why don’t the elderly in assistance livings win to my mom entered all those years it would be good to know some one who really needs it could have a good use for it if I won I would have enough to to take care of her so she could try new medicine that’s out their her in this home she don’t get the care she needs she was walking and now she in a wheel chair and I can’t get no answers she has had bruise and falls in one month 5 and it’s the same story when you ask what happen so if any one deserves to win it’s these people because they don’t get the care they need.

  6. Just Received a call. I won the big prize.Thanks for your info page I know what to do, who to call. You guys should make a commercial to let the public know about these scams.

    1. Hello Jacqueline, that is not the real PCH calling you; it’s a scammer that’s only pretending to be from PCH. Please do not call that number, do not give the scammer any personal info including bank account information, and definitely do not send them any money if they ask. If you haven’t already done so, please report that scam contact to us via the following link: http://bit.ly/Report-Scam-To-PCH. I encourage you to read these Safety Tips too: https://bit.ly/FraudProtection2. Please be careful everyone; don’t become a scammer’s victim!
