Publishers Clearing House
Champions Gate entry submissio, Florida
United States
I frequently play and enter with Publishers Clearing House. Today, after submitting a time-dated entry, the last page sent me to the pch games website wherein I logged into the site and clicked the spin and win game. You are only allowed to enter once per day. I clicked spin and the wheel stopped on $500 cash! It stayed there, too! I was rather excited because it did not stop there then skip over to another portion of the wheel. Expecting that I'd see a congratulations on the winnings, instead the next page said, congratulations you have won 50 tokens. This is not where the wheel had stopped! It stopped at the $500 cash earnings.. and it stayed there. I feel this is a sham and scam contest because I truly did win the $500 cash prize. I do not know or comprehend why PCH would chooses to ignore and/or not acknowlege that I did win this cash prize. I wrote to their contact us page and submitted my grievance.. I do believe they will not acknowledge my complaint. I don't even know if complaining here will do much good, but after this experience, I truly believe that the PCH company is not honest and is deceitful. It would be great if they were made to pay the winnings.. this is the url I was on when it happened: http://sb.pch.com/cat/10/56-02/instantSpin.html?ti=
It automatically gave me a screen that said I won tokens.. when the point in fact was the wheel DID stop and STAY at $500 cash prize. This is NOT fair and quite deceitful. I hope someone makes them fess up.

I played the wheel spin for two days and someone have played those days.Is there something about somtimes being discourared? I' m an optimist, and when it comes to losing because of the powers that be.

I have a real problem with all this cash that is supposed to be given away. No one and I mean no one needs $5, 000.00 per weeek for life plus a million dollers . It seems to me that PCH should take that money and divide it so that a lot of people got $500.00 per week for life. Just think what that would do for the economy. For people like me who live on a fixed income that would allow me to stay in my home, pay for heating oil and live a decent life. Rich people are noy all that happy and they definately don't do anything to halp our economy. I would much rather be happy and live a normal life.

I'm not a winner, and I've never won, but your position isn't one of serious concern. The PCH instant win games (such as the spin the wheel) state clearly that it is for illustrative purposes and does not actually reflect your chance at winning. Essentially it's just a graphic, and a majority of the time it works, but you may have just been glitched. Just letting you know that it's not a shady practice, it just is that if the odds/roll doesn't match their records then they'll provide you with a different result. The system can't be perfect as it's not allowed to be a gambling system.
