Probably but we keep playing as the games do give us something to do. Wouldn't bet on a big win however.

PCH is a scam that allows them to get information on you and let other vendors use them to pester you with e mails and phone calls.

Oh definitely I've been playing every day for about 3 years, have almost 700 million of those worthless tokens and have won nothing. All of their games are rigged and fake. You can never make it to the top of any of the leader boards no matter what because, rest assured, one of the made up names they use has about 200,000 more points than you do. And the sweepstakes are even more of a joke. You'll get an email on drawing day saying the "Prize Patrol" is on their way to the winner and the next time you know, you get an email saying there was no winner and there will be a "second chance" drawing, which seemingly never happens. They really need to be shut down.

I've been playing PCH for over 45 years. I play every opportunity given to me, those who play know how many that can add up to, and I've never won anything at all. I receive tokens which allow me to win prizes (which you never do).
I've come to the conclusion its a huge waste of time. They just want to collect your info to sell to others...who then blast you with spam.

I think the Attorney General's Office or some lawyer should start a class action suit against PCH. First PCH makes you buy a bunch of junk you don't want in order to enter. Then they never really let you know if your entry for the grand prize is completed. Instead they keep sending you countless emails with endless games, all with no point. And their SEARCH feature is horrible. You have to pick some thing to search, and then you are inundated with phone calls you don't want!
And who wins??
The reason I even got involved was a scam by them, saying I had been picked for a $100 Walmart card. No mention of PCH was made. I had to take a survey, and then it was revealed I was entered into PCH. It went on and on from there.
I'm unsubscribing. And I'm very upset. I WILL contact the AG's office about this SCAM PCH PRACTICES.

Have been playing for over 20 yrs. Have never won anything. All they want you to do is keep buying things and wanting you to send money to dog shelters. They show the commercial where they go to someone house but when it comes to winning you never hear who won. Rip off.

It seemed to me, that they are. I just felt that they wanted my credit card number. I don't want to waste time with something I won't win anything. Some people have been playing this games for over 20 years and never won anything. I hope that answers your question.

Yes i definitely think so, for one i played hundreds of games, redeemed millions of tokens, had to search 2-3 times a day fir an entry, and also because i quit responding and they sent emails, that they were gonna close my file, i said that's fine and they still keep sending emails...

I have played pch for several years. I have accumalated 1.6 million tokens. But all you can do with them is buy chances to win objects, food and a few other things.

I have never won any money. Pch commercials show them giving away big money. Jim
