Publishers Clearing House has found a lot of success by offering its fans chances to win, awarding over $220 million in prizes since the company's start in 1967. Today, online games offer PCH the chance to continue this winning tradition, while opening new revenue streams for the company.
Here are the different ways that PCH.com offers entrants chances to win.
PCH.com is the main website for Publishers Clearing House. There, you'll find information about their efforts to fight sweepstakes scams, their magazine subscriptions, and their customer service. But you can also find the entry forms for their multi-million dollar sweepstakes on PCH.com.
If you search the internet for information, you could also be winning prizes with Blingo, aka PCH Search and Win. All you need to do is to enter a search term into the search bar on the website and you could win prizes with Blingo.
In July of 2006, Blingo was taken over by Publishers Clearing House, which kept the basic idea the same, but added even bigger prizes. For example, some million-dollar PCH winners have entered just by searching through Blingo.
3. Play and Win with PCH Games
PCH Games gives you the chance to relax or kill time with free online games, while earning chances to win prizes.
By playing games like Mahjongg Dimensions, Spider Solitaire, or Video Poker, you can earn tokens. These tokens can be redeemed for entry into giveaways with prizes like gift cards worth between $50 and $500 or drawings to win even more tokens.
The odds of winning the prize drawings are approximately 1 in 30,000 (more popular prizes can have longer odds, while the chances of winning less popular prizes can be better). But if you're having fun playing the games, the chance to win prizes is icing on the cake.
Note that the site is ad-driven, and you often need to wait for ads to display before playing the games.
4. Guess and Win with PCH Lotto
If you like playing the lottery, but you don't like paying for the chance to win, PCH Lotto might be the place for you.
To enter, pick numbers for five different lotto giveaways. Between each card, you'll see ads, which is how PCH Lotto makes its revenues. After you've filled out your five lotto cards, you'll see a number of partner offers (aka, more ads), which you can sign up for or skip. Then you'll get a chance to win instantly with a scratch-off style instant game.
