Publishers Clearing House Announces $1,000,000 Super Prize Winner

By March 2, 2012

Follow me on:

On February 29th, the PCH Prize Patrol surprised a lucky winner with another big check. The winner, Jason Clark of Pocahontas, Arkansas, was not at home. Did the PCH Prize Patrol just turn around and leave?

Of course not. They asked his wife to call him and ask him to return home, without giving away the big surprise. Then the Prize Patrol knocked at his door with the flowers, the balloons, and of course, the oversized check in hand.

When Jason Clark answered the door to find David Sayer and other PCH representatives there, his first response was, "Awww, y'all are joking." When they told him he won the million dollars cash, he still thought they were joking. "Ohhh, whatever," he said. You can see the Video of Jason's win on YouTube.

Jason's win also illustrates a frequently asked question about PCH wins: What does the Prize Patrol do when you're not home to receive your prize? The answer is that they'll still find a way to find you and deliver that big win.

PCH is a bunch of chain mailing liars

(2) Terry says:

I agree with Dylan, they say someone in your viewing area with your initials a guaranteed winner and broadcast on local news, you’d think there would be a lot of hub-bub. on the news about a winner as they do. of a lottery winner, just a scam

Is this real or bogus? I searched for news coverage in Pocahontas, AZ & did not find any coverage of Mr. Clark’s good news. In my entry PCH said they notified the local news in my area. If this happened in your town wouldn’t it be big news? It would be more convincing if there were news reports about the win from somewhere else other than PCH.

i have been playing for yrs, over twenty,
was told i was a winner twice last yr and this,
not a thing since, they said they were from main office, even used the name of someone in from office prize patrol ,
how sad that some one would play such a joke, i’m not laughing and i’m never going to forgive or forget that from the people who played the joke on eilltherbangormaine04401
when your poor and work two jobs- you do wish it for it and want it even ifs its a few thousand or millions,
like to see them work like i work,and go though the hard ships that i have, am writing a book on that subject too.
thanks, still hoping to win big.

Who got those?

Terry, Guess you didn’t look too hard. Here is the story. I thought they were fake too but have researched and found a number of stories about people winning from legit news outfits.

It’s real! Trust me! You don’t have to purchase anything. They use the profits from their company products to pay out on these contests but you are not obligated to buy anything just to win. At least I didn’t :)

(12) Jaz says:

Im not sure of they really go looking for the winners. In several of the letters i was sent for contest including the 5grand every week for life. In the rules it says “winner will be notifyed and then has 30mins to claim the winnings or is concidered forfit.”

June 13, 2012 at 5:27 pm
(13) sagebrush says:

I just haven’t seen anything about the 5K for life that they’ve advertised for twice, once in April and once in March. No, I haven’t looked very hard because they made a big deal about how it would be on National News.

(15) Bobby Dickerson says:

They have not made me no beleiver,they check out if you have a lot of money or above averge.They do have all that information to get everyone checked out.Poor people or below average need more help than to of the contestants they show.Help the low income,not the rich is my motto.We low income people need a break in life to.ALSO there are no winners in Ky.much.WHY IS THAT?

In response to Bobby dickersons comments. perhaps it would be a good idea if you got a jog and you would not have to depend on the posibilityof winning the PCH

(17) Jerry Whitworth says:

For the people who WIn in PCH get real. You comment can be a bore, why would some off these winner be on T V if there no good things you can say when you win. The idea of them giving you people cash is to make their sponsors and them look good. Some of you that have won are still losers with money. May God Bless all that play to win and realy win for all involved.

Please only play if you realy want to win……Play on PCH way!! The real deal.

I have been playing PCH for 34 years and never won a cent, but have a house full of products. Hope is growing dimmer! How about a prize for someone playing and buying with a record like mine?

September 29, 2012 at 9:59 am
(19) Jerry Whitworth says:

Every one that buys things from PCH must have like what they have order or not. There never a reason to spend you hard earned dollars on things you don’t want. It is a free entry every time.

It’s not how much you buy, it’s how much you play. People get real it the real deal, never a dime to pay!!!
You can spent a life time having fun the PCH way!!!

JUST PLAY……….

Who are these people they get to hold these check on the videos? Are they like some bogus actors. And this woman writing the article on people winning. Is she working for PCH too. PCH sure does love asking for my money for stuff I can find at Walmart IF and that’s a big if I wanted it but I have never won either. Smh

I wish a person could see more Canadian winners. I’ve tried googling it and there is really nothing that comes up. On the pch canadian site the two winners that are posted are from a long time ago. I’m fine with the stuff I buy but it would be nice to see more local winners :)

(43) maria abrams says:

I truly hope that the PCH is real. I have tried to do everything that I am suppose to. If it’s a hoax, then it should not be leading people like myself who hope and pray for the opportunity to have a better life for myself and my family. If Pch is playing games with the public, God forgive you for leading us the public on what is known as false hope. From:Maria Abrams from Marion, Ohio 43302

I personally know the winners of the $1,000,000 in Pocahontas, Arkansas (not Arizona). They are a nice young family and very deserving of something good happening to them. So, yes this is for real and they really do give the money away.

http://www.kait8.com/story/17051633/pocahontas-man-wins-1-million-dollars-from-pch Realize that compared to world news, someone winning a contest would be in a smaller broadcasting station especially if it is a lesser known county. The major news tends to be more political in my opinion.

January 14, 2014 at 8:53 pm
(47) Shirley Dawson says:

Someone commented and said there is no Pocahontas in Arkansas. Not true, there is a city with that name in the very north of the state. I played a softball tourney there one weekend and I’ll never forget eating all those mosquitos. Also Its hard to think some people do not believe in all the winners – even with the videos online of the “winning moments”. Guess the same folks who think the holocaust is made up. Give us a break and keep your paranoid doubts to yourself.
