I responded to one for the 1 million dollars a year forever prize and now I am getting ones for 5,000 a week for life and a new one a 7,000 a week for life in Nov. Does anybody know if anyone has won these before or do they just keep advertising them until somebody wins. I'd like to win the million for life prize but Im think the odds are worse than PB and/or MM. Is anyone else trying to play these also??

    If enough members are playing it, you can start another thread asking how they are planning on spending the winnings. If you win will you "borrow out money" to me?

      I did the same thing. Not sure if the junk mail I get every day is worth it, but can't hurt to try. PCH is sneaky with the fine print though. They will tell you a winner is guaranteed to have your initials, but it will be a $100 winner....not the big prize winner. LOL

      I think the odds are somewhere in the billions, so it wouldn't surprise me if nobody here knows a past winner

      If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the payoff does.

      If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

        Yes, I'm playing. I figure what the hell, why not. All the emails can get annoything though, it's almost everyday they send one asking for verification. I always answer, so who knows. I was watching "The lottery changed my life" and on  one episode they had a P.C.H. winner who stated she answered every email they sent because she saw a past winner say they did the same thing and they won. So, hopefully I can take it down. If so I'll let the site know.

          I couldn't deal with all the endless emails or mail i experienced a few years ago when i did so i just toss or delete anything i get from them. Once i was taken on a long journey of endless advertisements that i had to "accept or decline" in order to enter one of their drawingsSkeptical....that was nothing though compared to the endless junk mail that soon filled my email and mail box....i vowed never again Bang Head

              I do enter occasionally but I too watched Lottery Changed My Life when Natalie Bostelman won a million but what she ended up with was approximately $260,000.00.  What a crock.  While I would be happy to win that it is a far cry from a million dollars they advertised.  I also notice they have all these different entry number and dates so who know what you are even entering.

                I'm sure he will start another thread if he wants to and if you don't like it...

                Well, I guess you'll just have to get over it, won't ya, Stank?

                Or notify management that yet another member is starting threads without getting your approval first.

                  Once you enter online, they flood you with emails. I stopped playing also after learning about the odds.

                        I wrote in that thread that I started that thread as a joke. A way to show how rediculous and redundant they are.

                          That's good to know, the less email I have to sit and delete the better.

                              That PCH Winners Van would never make it up the mountain.

                              And if they tried they'd better pray they didn't break an axle near the McNutt's house on the way up.
