“Yeehaw!” Halloween Brought Only Treats To Bruce S. Of North Carolina

The pouring rain couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm of Howie Guja and Dave Sayer of the PCH Prize Patrol as they stepped onto the porch of Bruce Saunders in Mocksville, NC. It was Halloween, but there was no trick here – only one HUGE treat!

Incredulous, Bruce opened the door, saying, “Oh my god, I’m about to pass out!” and looked into the camera. “Hello, everybody!” He then introduced his wife of 33 years, Susie, who stood at the door with her hands over her mouth in amazement as Dave told them it was their lucky day. “You’ve won a MILLION DOLLARS!” The couple nearly collapsed in astonishment and joy!

Being Halloween, could it have been a trick instead of a treat? When the friendly former truck driver saw the Prize Patrol outside, he recognized them immediately. “I knew this wasn’t a trick. I said, ‘Susie… they’re here.’”

Dave asked Susie if she ever teased Bruce about playing PCH games. “No,” she answered. “I say, if you don’t have your name in it, you know you’re not going to win it” — a very true statement indeed!

Bruce and Susie have been entering PCH’s free online sweepstakes for an incredible 37 years, and it finally paid off. He’s been on disability since 2003, Susie has health issues and the couple have four kids and 13 grandchildren, so the money will definitely come in handy. Along with helping with medical bills, fixing his lawnmower and helping family members, he nodded toward Susie. “I’d like to get me some teeth and take her out for steak!”

As the shock still hit him, he started dancing around on the porch. “Yeehaw! I won a million bucks!” Don’t shake up that champagne TOO much, Bruce!

    1. Hi Janice! It’s important to remember that PCH does not contact winners of a major prize via phone, text, email, mail, or on Social Media. All of our major prize winners are awarded in person by our famous Prize Patrol, with no prior warning. Also, if anyone asks you for money for any reason to claim a prize, you can be sure they’re a scammer. If you are contacted by a scammer, you can report them to us at this link: We provide numerous videos, blogs, and tips to recognize these scammers here: Stay safe!

  1. The way my life is going…no job, been rejected because they don’t want someone with autism….. getting this would definitely help me get back up on my feet……but good luck to you all and may the best man or woman win. P.S. I don’t want any sympathy from anyone. I may be struggling but I’m still alive.

  2. I hope that I am going to be the next winner. I’ve never won anything in my life, hope that it’s Pennsylvania. Good luck to everyone, I will be waiting on PCH to come to my house with a big check!

  3. I want to win.
