PCH Scam Prevention: Quick Tips to Help You Avoid Sweepstakes Scams Online!

Don’t let a PCH Scam take the fun out of winning!



Hi, PCH Fans!

Danielle Lam here, from the PCH Prize Patrol. As you know, my job is to award Big Prizes to lucky winners — and I absolutely LOVE IT! But there are shameful scammers on social media who are trying to ruin it for everyone. You see, they imitate Publishers Clearing House and the Prize Patrol by using our names and photos on websites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram — but we refuse to let them fool you!

So let’s take a quick trip to Anti-Scam School, where I’ll share some quick and easy tips for spotting and avoiding PCH Scams online…


Remember, your safety and protection is our top priority! So please do your best to follow these tips:

  • It’s always FREE to ENTER! You never pay to receive a PCH Prize! Winning is always FREE at Publishers Clearing House. That means, we will NEVER ask you to wire money, provide credit card information or purchase a prepaid card in order to claim a prize award.
  • PCH will NEVER send you a private message, text or a friend request on Facebook. A lot of PCH scams begin with a fake PCH account. Don’t be fooled! If someone pretending to be PCH or the Prize Patrol sends you a private message, you can report it using our online scam form.
  • If you win the SuperPrize, we will show up to award the prize in Person! It will be a complete surprise! You’ve seen our winning moments on TV. You know all about the Prize Patrol and how they deliver Big Checks to SuperPrize winners. So please keep a lookout for anyone trying to “award a SuperPrize” any other way – that would be a PCH Scam!


Winning should be exciting, fun and always safe! So please share these tips with friends and family so we can help everyone avoid sweepstakes scams online.

Stay safe and good luck! Maybe the next Big PCH Check (the real one!!) will be for you.

Each game has a different Paytable that shows you all the different ways you can score points. Just look for the link below each game’s name. For example, here’s the Paytable for the online slots game High 5s.


Plus, we’ve included a Tournament Progress bar that will track the number of points scored per game and your Tournament Total Score.

Tournament Progress

And here’s a special surprise: you’ll bank tokens with every game completed AND your tokens banked will triple when you complete the seven-game daily tournament. (For all you folks out there who have been wondering how you can earn more tokens, this is a terrific way!)

Even better, completing the daily tournament games gives you a spin of the $500.00 Wheel of Winning – a bonus shot at winning instant CASH or banking EVEN MORE tokens. With all these winning ways, I think you can see why you’ll definitely want to come back and play these online slots games EVERY SINGLE DAY!

But that’s not all — I’ve saved the best for last! You’ll even score an entry into the Million Dollar SuperPrize after your first game play. That’s right, after you play the Magic 2’s, you’ll automatically get entered into the $1,000,000.00 SuperPrize drawing!

Score More Ways To Win On The PCH App!

We’ve already told you about so many fun ways to win on The PCH App, but today we want to make sure you’re taking of EVERYTHING it has to offer.

So if you’ve already downloaded The PCH App, here’s what we want to know: did you say OK to notifications? We’re asking because allowing these important notifications will alert you to Sweepstakes entries for PCH App users!

Don’t remember if you said OK to notifications? Well, as a reminder, if you did, you would have seen the screen below when you first opened the app.

PCH App NotificationsFor those of you who haven’t downloaded the app yet, but want to download it now in either the Google Play or App Store, make sure you click “OK” when that screen pops up.

Why should you say OK to notifications?

Well, when you do, you’re saying “yes” to more ways to win! Once per day (maybe more), you’ll receive a notification with a sweepstakes entry only available to PCH App users. These entries will run the gamut of our millionaire-making SuperPrizes, cash for home renovations, dream vacations, and more. Plus, some notifications will even award multiple entries to win millions. So you can see why you’d definitely want to make sure you’re receiving notifications!

What should you do if you already have the PCH App, but aren’t receiving notifications? Not to worry, there’s an easy way to fix that!

1) On the home screen, tap the i in the upper-right-hand corner to launch the menu in the bottom-third of the screen.

2) Next, tap the “person with flag” icon that reads “Notifications” in the bottom-left-hand corner of the screen.

3) On the “Push Notification Settings” menu, tap the “Yes, I want alerts!” button and you’re all set to start receiving notifications.
