Original review posted by user Nov 07, 2011

I used to watch my grandmother and my mother also get so excitied when they would get their PCH swwepstakes in mail to submit.THey always felt they had a chance to win and this would be the time they hit it big.

Of course, NOTHING! Now, i am following along the same path i suppose trying to also win so i can provide and care for my family as so many others wish to do as well. I keep getting emails stating that this could be it, This is your cahnce to win MILLIONS. I am wondering if there is anyone out there who really knows of anyone who had won anything at all or if PCH is just a big pile of lies.

It is so sad that their is so many MILLIONS of people who could really use this money in so many ways and will get their hopes up for nothing. Absolutely nothing!. If this is the case, why is it that someone has not had a investigation done and had them questioned on possibly the world news to let so many know that this is just a scam to get you to buy into products they are advertising, which in return they are getting rich off of. I have said that i am going to play this one LAST sweepstake that a winner will be announced on November 30th 2011.

I am waiting to see what will happen and who is the winner.

If i feel it is not legit, i am thinking about seriously reporting to the Today and also GMA to have the company investigated and to have them to provide proof of real winners.It is time for some REAL WINNERS!!!

I agree I've actually tried now for two years and they showed a map where I lived,the motel they'll be staying at and the name of the florist. They keep wanting me to order stuff I would but can't afford it. That's why I'm trying for the money. Can't eat news letters and magazines ect. Show me the MONEY.

I got a $10.00 check, they forgot a few zeros, but that's okay, I'm sure they'll figure it out and show up with the rest, be patient.

I applied 12,000,000 tokens towards a prize at PCH and didn’t win. How is that possible? I’m beginning to have doubts about the time I invested to get 12,000,000 tokens. My family had a great laugh at my expense.

I won 20$ from PCH and have never bought anything from them. Keep the faith and keep playing.

I've been playing PCH sweeps for 50 years, on and off. Never won anything. My mom played through the mail for as long as i could remember. She pasted stickers, chose magazines hoping that would cause her entries to be placed in a 'true' barrel for an honest pick. Nothing, ever.
I too, believe it is a scam to collect 'click' income for the 'fat-cats'. And, boy they must be fat by now...

People are dumb PCH had been around forever it is NOT a someone else said about the state or federal lotto it's like saying its a scam cause you never won or haven't known anyone who's won. I play the games on their site and won some small gift cards but I know the odds for the big prizes is slim to none. I enter cause it's like a free lotto but I don't expect to win.

My son won $20 off the Bingo game, but I have played the PCHlotto, and it doesn't save my numbers. This is over and over again and it states I didn't play when clearly I have.

I am not sure if it's a scam ...maybe not . I just hate how they use their trick words in their e-mails making you think you won something- "This is it!" "Instant win report" "Full disclosure open immediately!" It's like they should just say. "it's us again, you didn't win want to keep trying?"

Several entries past years & to date but not one win etc! Statements of the name of winner & their location I suspect they are fictitious or a relative!

I also have been entering for years and I have never won a thing and I don't know anyone who has. And on top of that, when I have ordered things in the past, they take forever to send the item and by the time you get it, you have forgotten that you even ordered it, but be a little late in sending in your payment and they quick to hound you for it.
I do know several people who have won various amounts in the New York State Lottery, but no body from the PCH lotteries.

Hello same issue here... I was wondering the same thing and stop ordering things along time ago, all though I still play because of the wish to hopefully win. With the lost hope that maybe, just maybe the dreams their advertising are not a gimmick...

AMEN PCH needs to put up or shut up. When they call me or knock on my door with a substantial prize (MONEY) then I feel they should be investigated....60 minutes

I don't believe that publishers clearing house is truly picking winners everyone I know has entered a billion times and no one has ever won, I think its a scam just to get people to want to buy their junk.

I won fifty bucks about a month ago. I went to pch slots, played all of them, got my diamonds, then when it got to casino I spun like twice and hit fifty bucks. They sent me a check like a week later. Me and my neighbor went out to a bar and played darts and drank beer. :) Yling Ling i think it was...good stuff. :)
