Advantages and Disadvantages of PCH Sweepstakes:
PCH offers amazingly huge prizes which anyone would love to win. A PCH SuperPrize could set you up for life. However, there are a couple of drawbacks as well.
Publishers Clearing House is so famous and its sweepstakes are so popular that the chances to win are extremely low. You're looking at odds of 2.4 billion to one to win the SuperPrize. For comparison, the odds of winning a Powerball jackpot are "only" about 292.2 million to one. But remember, you have to pay money to play Powerball, which substantially increases your risks.
Another disadvantage of PCH sweepstakes is that the entry process includes several pages of advertisements and offers. You can receive a high volume of unwanted mail if you overlook the opt-out options, so take the time to read through what you are agreeing to when entering.
Publisher's Clearinghouse Sweepstakes Scams:
Many people wonder: are Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes scams? They aren't. PCH giveaways are closely watched by state regulatory commissions and legal agencies, and the drawings are made by an independent third party to ensure everything is done fairly.
Although the company has run afoul of state regulatory agencies for not making it clear that purchases would not influence the chances of winning, Publishers Clearing House has changed their procedures and is now giving away more prizes than ever.
Although Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes are legitimate, a number of scammers try to capitalize on the popularity of these sweepstakes by using the PCH name to lure in victims.
