PCH Prize Patrol Dispatched

Travel plans have been finalized and the PCH Prize Patrol has been dispatched. They are on a new mission to make a surprise $1 Million SuperPrize award to a new Publishers Clearing House winner.

The Prize Patrol van will be full because accompanying the cash sweepstakes prize award team will be our PCH Goodwill Ambassador, Natalie Bostelman, and a film crew from a TV series about how winning a big prize changes people’s lives. All of those people will have to fit in addition to the balloons, dozen roses and the Big Check!

Anticipation is building at PCH Sweepstakes headquarters. All of our employees are wondering who the next PCH SuperPrize winner will be. Will he or she have a tearful winning moment or a leaping for joy Publishers Clearing House moment?

We won’t know until we watch the winner announcement
on NBC TV in a commercial during the NBC Nightly News, and then watch the video footage on PCHTV.com.

In the meantime, we’ll watch the progress of cash prize delivery notices on the Prize Patrol Live site and wish our PCH Prize Patrol a safe journey.

  2. II thought the prize on Nov. 30th 2010 was the $5,000 a week for life? Or is there another prize for the that?
    ALSO, I have watched most of the videos online on youtube and on PCH.com and how come 90% of the winners are older? Like, 40+?
    I’ve never seen a YOUNG person win within my age range. (21-25)…??
    My dad was thinking maybe because they will (sorry for being so blunt) “pass away” before the “young” people and they won’t have to give them all the $$?? Like,if they were to get the $5,000 a week for life…??

    1. Hi Kylie,

      Unfortunately, the winning number was not returned in this “Advanced Look” drawing for the Ultra Combo Prize ($1 Million plus $5,000 A Week For Life), so the prize was not awarded at this time. The winner of the $1 million second chance drawing was Julie Laughlin of Grand Ledge, MI.

      As the prize wasn’t awarded on November 30th, it will be carried over to the official giveaway end date of February 29, 2012. However, we may have another “Advanced Look” drawing before then… keep watching our website for updates!

      Please keep in mind that our winners are selected randomly, and each entry has an equal chance of winning – regardless of how old the entrant may be.

  4. Was today’s winner of 1 million and 5,000 a month? or is that another prize? I am glad I am not the only one who waited with baited breath today! I was beginning to think I was just nuts. hahaha

  5. Ok I am not sure why my post wasn’t posted? But what time will the winner be announced today? Will it be on NBC? and why do certain sites and the Official Rules say it is not till 2012?


  6. Just seen that the winner will be announced on the NBC nightly news. So the winner has already been awarded, and the nightly news will let everyone know how that lucky person was. Right?

  7. I would really like to win this prize, but who wouldn’t right. I have so many things I want to do with the money. What time on Nov 30 will it be announced who the winner is? Does anyone know?

  8. I am really nervous and excited today. I hope that I am the one to win today….my husband and I struggle to get buy and with christmas coming up our kids are so excited….I could think of so many good things I could do with a blessing like this….god bless…

  9. Why is it that you NEVER see PCH awarding the super prize or any other prize for that matter to people who live in Apts/Condos or any other residintial dwelling other than a house or trailer? Are they prejudice in their selection? Should they tell participants before hand that they don’t select winners from these places?

    1. Hi Kenya,

      Each entry received has an equal chance of winning and we never know who our next winner may be. Our winners are as varied as the faces you see in our famous television commercials coming from all walks of life, ages, ethnic backgrounds and regions. We have had winners who live in big cities, small towns, trailer parks, high rise apartments and even the Alaskan tundra.

  10. I would certainly love to win this prize today. I have barely won anything in my entire life. I have two beautiful girls that I am raising on my own and it is so hard. But no matter who it is that wins, what time of the day should they expect to possibly see the patrol? What if they are not home?

    1. Hi Krista,

      When our famous Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol awards a prize in person, they make every effort to find that winner. If the winner is at work, on vacation, or away from home, the Prize Patrol will find them. Good luck!

      1. I am so happy for the past winners but I am hoping to be the one today. The money has already been designated for a building fund for my church and my retirement. It would be more than a blessing, however whomever is the recipient will be blessed abundantly. If I don’t win this year (30 years or more of participating-lol) I will continue to enter online. I have seen many lives changed and I pray that it will always be for the betterment of their life. God bless you!
