I would play this more and give a good rating however if anyone is to win why take this game I enjoy off my phone. I get to number 6 or 8 on leaderboard and bank shot is not on my phone. This is not fair. It makes me think this site is not legat. Thank you
I received a cell call this morning August 29, 2015 at 9:15 am from 876-833-4673 from Jamaica. I called the number at 9:55 am and was informed that it was Publishers Clearing House. I held on the phone until a man came on and I politely asked him to please remove my telephone number. He answered "f++k off and F++k you" and hung up.
Good luck with the PR of this company.
Confirmed when you play. The next day you get a message that if you don't search, play games ect. You loose the entry's? I've never entered anything that takes away a confirmed entry. How is it "confirmed" if they can take it away? I always thought once you enter a sweepstakes, you are entered. Period! The other thing I don't understand and I've tried to ask PCH (No response) is , they have a rule only 1 entry per day into the $5 grand a week for life sweepstakes. (Unless u download a Pch game) yet they offer and confirm a unlimited number of those everyday per person? Like the blackjack game... U can use tokens at the end of that game to (buy?) Up to 5 entry's? and that's the next to last game in the lineup. Why keep offering if they aren't valid? What do they do with all the entry's that don't count? Who decides which 1's stay and which ones go? Why don't they respond to questions? Even frequently asked questions? I've read their "frequently asked questions" none of them have any depth. They are all so non- specific. Where is the big prize winners list? Another question that isn't on the FAQ list. I tend to think that question would be asked more than any other. More transparency would be a good thing, wouldn't it?
I think if people spent more time on it and turn their opinions around yes maybe they don't win but think of all the people that Publishers Clearing House has helped. I play a lot of games and stuff and I think it would be awesome it would totally turn my life around if I won but I'm not going to be mean to the next person for winning.
I come to my local library daily to work on my graduate degree and often sit next to a wonderful hearing impaired individual. She is always playing on PHC website. I try to respect her privacy but we have communicated and she has offered the information to me. I feel so bad the hours she puts into this website. I am not exactly sure what she is doing but has communicated to me that the Prize Patrol will be at her home on 8/31/15. I just feel like this is all a scam. I actually told her I thought that and she somewhat defensively said NO! I find that PCH is a bunch of predators. What are they gaining from these people who are on fixed incomes with disabilities? I see her heart breaking with the doubt the "Prize Patrol" is going to be anywhere insight on 8/31. I give them a ZERO. It's terrible thing scamming the elderly and disabled like this. A this crap about tokens and bingo is a joke. Heck I will take you all to a bingo hall. You would actually have fun and a better chance of winning. Can anything be done to stop this?
IDK why some on here are complaining. I only get one email from PCH,per day. Occasionally 2,but usually only one. Maybe if they did'nt subscribe to every damn thing PCH tells them to,they would'nt get beseiged by emails. As far as the games&such,don't bother with those,they won't get you much even if you DO win(assuming that winning anything on PCH is even possible),go for the big ones,the money,like the 5,000.00 a week forever,1 million dollar jackpot&such. That way,if you DO win,it's something worthwhile(if one actually CAN win on PCH&that's a big assumption in itself).Leave the damn games&token stuff alone,as it won't get you much at all. Stop being such mindless,whiny little sheep&THINK,damnit,THINK...Do you want big money,or useless tokens&a few bucks,maybe a measly 100.00? Just sayin'. Have a nice night...
Or in Dante’s immortal words, “Abandon hope, all ye who enter here.” :-)
If you enter online, you will receive an INFINITE number of emails, each of which requires you to scroll to the bottom of an INFINITE number of pages, each containing an INFINITE number of ads. Better buy a lottery ticket; you will only be wasting some money, not your life.
I don’t think they could be targeting the poor and elderly, though. Victims can only jump through their hoops with the fastest connection and the very latest browser. They are targeting people who can afford those, who might make better customers for the junk they offer. However, this is something to avoid utterly; once you have invested a few hours you will invest a few hundred more hours to avoid losing your time investment, and so on ad infinitum.
Tip for consumers: AVOID!Ask Shirley about Publishers Clearing House (PCH)
I have been playing games and searching now for over a year, every day I get a different email, search now for this drawing & another for this drawing. I've also redeemed so many tokens & have won absolutely NOTHING. I understand there are millions of people playing, but come on over a million tokens & not even a lousy 10$ gift card to McDonald's not that I would want that, dnt eat there jus an example. Just how many different drawings do they actually have a year. I'm tired of searching, playing games, redeeming tokens, just a waste of time. Plus I'm disabled & just had back surgery, rather play a game from the play store on my phone. If there was a lower than 1 rating,I would give a -10
I have figured out how Publishers Clearing House never awards the "mega prize" with their "special early looks." All the numbers for the "special early looks" have to be returned by a certified date. Then all the numbers are fed into a computer. Then PCH has the computer churn out a "winning number" that does NOT match any of the returned ones, so they can honestly say "the winning number was not returned." This has happened all last year and now twice this year. Just wait--the August "special early look" won't result in anybody winning the" $5000 a week for life and then $5000 a year for the life of someone you choose," either. This is just a scam to drum up business through the life of the sweepstakes. I have already contacted the Federal trade Commission about this and I hope they put a stop to this!
When I find out that people are winning after only playing a few times or a even a few months, I am very disheartened, as I have played for well over 20 years now, and still have not won a thing. What I just found out a few days ago makes me sad as well. All of the games are rigged. The Bingo game is rigged and so are the others. I have landed on $1,000 many times, but once it lands on the money, (Lucky Diamonds) the dial quickly goes towards the tokens, proving this game is rigged. So tired of getting rewarded with tokens instead of real money. I have been playing PCH since the 70s when it was all mail-in entrys only. When is it my turn to win PCH?! I play every day and spend approximately 2-3 hrs. each day playing all of the games, but yet I never win. Bottom line is they pay people to "PRETEND" to win. I've been told they are all actors. I don't believe anybody ever wins. If PCH comes to my door, then I'll believe it, but not until then.
PCH isn't worth the time and energy we put into it you would have a better chance playing the litter and winning $20,000 then damn PCH. I have done research and noticed that the people who win we don't hear from them again or that the winners video isn't on news channels, and that most of the winners are old, single moms with too many kids, and people who are already doing good.
Hello, how are you? Well, I feel it's inspiring and beneficial. It doesn't take much to press a few keys, to MAYBE get a life changing destiny. Think positive, get positive, think negative, get negative. One never knows when their time will come....but it will. Blessings 2 all. Keep the faith. n smiles
what happens if i don't use tokens from playing? i would rather use on real options not go up against 500 to 100 or more and just loose the tokens I have worked so hard to get.
I bought a duffle bag from Walmart 10 years ago for $9.98 and the little side pouch zipper is messing up. I see PCH has a duffle bag, it was one of those buy one and get a second for free. Total cost about $20. The dimensions were the same so I ordered it. They came in the mail just in time for a trip. Packed my bags (one of them had my camera and netbook) and carried them to my vehicle. So I maybe put a couple of minutes of stress on them. Made it to my destination 6 hours later, grab the bags and sling them over my shoulders only to have the one with my camera and netbook break and hit the parking lot ground. Luckily nothing damaged due to the surrounding clothes but now I'm not able to trust the cheaply made duffle bags. I went back to using my Walmart one. I guess I should have known when I first saw them and the seams and materials were starting to unravel.
This is a sham, I have been playing this for 20 years now, and only bought something once 20 years ago. I have not won even a cheapo $5 gift card!! Even with the Powerball and the country playing the odds are still better than PCH, I have won a couple times some $20 prizes with them. Those are greater odds than this and still haven't won nothing!!
How sweet it is to have a second blessing in life .I am honered to be a big part of this new family of mine first thing I am going to take my two youngest to Walt Disney world then I am going do to do some smart and happy things thank you pch for making my dream come true.
the games break down regulery right after starting and in the middle and the end after restarting the game it still breaks down. I don't realy have much to do all day but I'm still getting tired of the same crap
it has done for the two or three years I've been trying to play. I'd love to win of coarse we all would but if the games won't play what's to look foward too?
I purchased more that I could really afford all ain't is to win so I can pay in full for my daughters house, medical bills and car. She is not well and she and her husband have been struggling for years. They Never ask for anything. I am 70 and only have enough to provide for my continued livingl
Here I am again. :) Can't help it, admit it people...who else gives away "life changing" opportunities like PCH ? Nobody. Let's count the ways. 1.) Great Deals 2.) Great and Unique Products 3.) Great Magazines. Any Magazine on any subject...Very Popular Magazines plus great deals...infact I never found anyone who beat PCH Prices. 4.) If you ever have to return something or just have a question the people there are so kind and helpful. 5.) Dave Sawyer, Todd Sloan and Danielle Lam and their awesome crew COULD possibly come to your door with a "LIFE CHANGING CHECK" to make all of your dreams come true...NOW! Not tomorrow but NOW. WOW That is what I say! Now I would say just for a moment. ..just absorb that thought...and ask yourself who else offers you all of this? My saying for PCH is "WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE" :) I rest my case. Continue to play, enter and dream. Ask, Believe and Recieve :) Good Luck Everyone. :)
I am here only to help. and get help.On Disqus lot of us make mistakes.I make my share. when you make a typing area and keep trying to fix it but it says there is another email make a new one and all you need to do is fix the one you have. Email are important for many reasons we get friends mail we send our payments on a email we play games and use our email. To lose one it can be devastating. I have lost money because of them and I don't want to lose again if at all possible.Disqus needs to change their way of letting people fix their emails.and we all need I need to watch closer myself it better I believe I am dyslexic because I transpose my letters to often. Do I get penalised because I made a mistake. how many of us make mistakes, I have ask for help so man times and left notes for them to read. I love going to Disqus is a wonderful place to go and I have loved writing there and will still go. They are a wonderful group of people. Just need to fix the problem and it is so small . Thak you everyone for allowing me to come here..
the thing is a joke nobody really wants they hire people to pretend to be winners. It's just the Telus scam if you don't play their little games every day they terminate your claim number I have gotten numerous numerous emails and it's getting ridiculous unless I play their games every day the times that I've entered are terminated all is scam all a scam this whole thing in the fake they hire people to play winner
I JUST ENJOY PLAYING THE GAMES, IF I WIN SURE
IWILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY, IT SURE WILL BE NICE TO BE ABLE TO BUY SOME VERY NEEDED THINGS . SO TO ALL GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF US
I'm disabled on extremely limited income and raising 2 small granddaughters in desperate need of a vehicle desperately need to win so I keep trying to win something other than tokens so come on pch make our dreams come true have so many needs
I've been ripped off!!! These people are disppiable and cruel, inhuman by far.
Most people are vulnerable, and dream of a life with out financial worries.
How sad this is, for all those who have dreams of getting ahead in life. And then
It's shattered by Publisher's Clearing House, so they can get some poor soul to
anti up $20.00 dollars, for processing fees ! What a disgrace they are...
If you want to waste your time Publishers is the place to go. America has lost her way and turned into a whore and Publishers Clearing House is the pimp. I have played every sweepstakes for 50 years with nothing to show for it so just forget about winning.
P.C.H. Say that you don't have to buy anything to participate in their draws. IT IS NOT TRUE!
They make you go searching forever and when you get there, it shows all their sales promotions. So, who are they trying to fool.?
All they want is your credit card number. And you are done for.
You simply never win anything. Without mention they never answer your e.mai either.!
I'd been participating in PCH things since the '70s when it was all by mail; and online, since they computerized. I have 4 different browsers on my computer and no matter which one I use, I get "technical difficulties" messages quite a bit, as well as pages that won't load at all. I've never won a cent and their products seem to be WAY over priced, especially when adding in their exorbitant shipping fees. (ex: they have an indoor/outdoor thermometer for $19.95 + shipping, which I imagine is around $7. I bought the same exact thing at Walmart for $9.95). Not worth my time any more!
In between trying to keep my head above water and facing being homeless, I finally have reached the end of my rope with PCH. Every day I wake up to 15 emails before noon telling me that I have to go search to enter or my entry is forfeit, or how if I act right now then my prize number is locked in and I'll win. When I am not stressed out trying to save my home and family, I spend on the PCH website playing the games every day and have done so for over 5 years waiting and hoping and praying. All the praying in the world did not make a difference. I feel like an idiot for wasting my time with this. I lost my job, my fiance's hours at work got cut and we are about to be homeless on the streets in less than a week. What money we do have is paying for storage and a moving truck and after that we have no roof over our heads, we have no place to go, we exhausted, borrowed and begged and even my fiance's family wont let us couch surf even temporary, they wont even let ME stay there. I have counted the amount of emails over the last 5 years averaging almost 20 per day every day So 20 x 365 = 7300 x 5 = 36,500 emails total from PCH. Each one telling me to enter or I lose my entry and FYI I am not counting 5 years worth of emails that said "Double Entry" or "Triple Entry" by standard calculations I should have one, you know what I won so far? Those stupid tokens, I can't cash them in for anything useful, and all you can do is redeem them for a chance to win bogus prizes, oh but wait if you haven't achieved a certain level to submit entry to a prize you want, guess what, you're SOL. To date since the start of those token collection thing on their site I have wracked up 727,247 tokens, which I cant use for anything. Honestly do not waste your time with this, no one every wins these things, and the so called winners are random actors paid to act like real winners. Anyway I am going off grid I have to figure what I am going to do know, so yea thanks PCH for NOTHING.
So yea living out of my car, My fiance, Pet Cat and I are moving in with his parents, they have a cottage out back, and I finally had to turn off my sprint phone service because every single day there are now 30 emails in my email box from PCH saying the same thing. Its not worth the time and energy, you're best bet is to just find a way to get rid of the emails and move on. The winners are random people that get paid to pretend to be winners, Even though they say you can win 7K a week for life, their videos and website still offer only the 5K for life, so its obvious that the whole thing is a lie. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS. The only thing PCH guarantees is that they crush your dreams and leave you face down in the dirt. I'm living proof that even after 6 years of playing and hoping and praying dreams do not come true.
I have never won anything in my life but there is always hope, and courage keeps me going with all the chances that PCH offers, and patience keeps me calm till the day i can say " i won " God Bless gerald cox
No one is forcing you folks to play the games, you do it because you wish you could win $ and if you truly wish to win, keep trying and maybe you will win. Instead of complaining, try being optimistic and don't fantasize that Pch is reading these letters. If you don't like the game, get out or try being more positive in your lives. Besides, cry babies usually only end up with a baby bottle and not money. Play, have fun, stay cheerful as possible and just be as happy as you can be. Remember, life is precious and you only have one life this time around. Hope you all get something good in your lives that genuinely makes you happy. The End
I don't mind if I don't win, however it would be nice I have three kids and a miracle would be a nice change... but I'm happy(: I see a lot of bad reviews but personally I like it, it's free to play, out passes time, maybe one day I'll win big :p and for all the advertisements there is a skip button, it's not required to veiw their sponsors, it clearly says spending money doesn't increase your chances.. also if you click on game details or rules it gives the odds of winning and their contact info... I give it 5 stars even though I've never won anything exciting just because it's free and fun(:
I have been playing the games to a while now and on most of them they don't load. I have also noticed that on the games that ey say that you can win money and I'm not asking for much I just thought it would be cool to win even $5.00 but all I seem to get is coins and don't get me wrong they can be used for bigger and better things but every time I play I get the same exact amount of tokens. I thought by playing a game there is always a chance to get something else like 1000 coins rather than 500 coins. The real test will be tomorrow because all the coins that I've collected I used to put in about 100-200 bids on a $50.00 gift card. It may seem strange to bet so many times but I wanted to see if it is possible to win something and make sure it isn't just wasting my time and the time of others. I have heard of people wining but it seems like you have to be able to play all day and not everyone can be home all day. Well I still think that if it is possible to win something that it will be time well spent I do think that they need to fix the games though. I play on my tablet because my computer quit so thought it was just me but I've heard of others with the same problem. Thank you for you time hope this helps :-)
