Games Instant Win

I was dumb enough to play Games Instant Win Riverboat Poker again. As happened before when I got a good hand - this time a Kings and Queens full house, the last time five aces - naturally, the site immediately crashed. Maybe it was coincidence because all their sites crash regularly, but I now have no faith at all in their integrity and won't do it again.

worthless

I've been receiving PCH stuff in the mail since the 70's & doing the online stuff since it's been computerized. I've never won a penny; their products are WAYYYYYY overpriced, especially when you factor in the shipping costs. (ex: I saw an indoor/outdoor thermometer on PCH that was $19.95 plus shipping, which probably would've been about $7. I'd just bought the exact same thermometer in Walmart for $9.95). I've redeemed millions of their tokens, but have never won anything there either. Definitely a complete waste of time, to say the least!!

Web site and Instant Win

I started playing all the PCH games about three months ago. I have read a lot of negative reviews about PCH but had reserved judgment until the other day when playing Games Instant Win Riverboat Poker. I got five aces and thought maybe I had finally won something. But a window briefly popped up saying I qualified for $1000 Sweepstakes and then it crashed. If five aces doesn't get an "instant win" nothing will, so I no longer believe anything they claim.
Every single day there have been "technical difficulties", and I have to refresh and/or restart the browser multiple times. I have worked with computers for many years and know the problem is not my browser no matter what they say. I have come to the conclusion that the odds of winning something are about the same as having a bug-free day - nil. I won't get sucked into this again.

YOUR CHEATING ON SWEEPSTAKES GAMES & ALL!!!!!!!!!

PCH you cheat, don't even say it's my browser!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Unlock your sweepstakes games & all other games that you prefer to cheat on...
Can't prove it but one night last week or so I was playing instant games late at night & got 1000.00 instant cash instead of the 1000.00 tokens, never nothing came of it, because it was late no customer service to get a hold of-course & never awarded not even the tokens...
So either unlock ALL of your games so I may play for the enjoyment of it, not even concerned about playing your UNLIKELY odds
but your CHEATING the innocent public of their deserving MOST UNLIKELY ODD'S
OR NOT THAT YOU CARE WILL UNSUBSCRIBE ALL OF YOUR CRAP & WORD OF MOUTH WILL RING SUPREME!!!!!!!!!!

order

I ordered a tube of caulk that was supposed to work really well. It was crap. The first time I used it, the caulk didn't just come out the tip, it was squeezing out around where the cap screwed on. And yes, the cap was on as tight as I could get it. The stuff was just junk. I'll never order anything from these people again. And all I ever got playing their stupid games was tokens. Whoopie.

conectivity

Hi, for two days now I have been trying to access your last two emails concerning my last day to search so I can win the $10,000,000. prize or the 3148 drawing for $5,000 a week for life, or the $25,000. It will not let me sign on as when I do and hit the continue button as I have been doing for years, it simply states error 500. I have cleaned all my catches and have even tried to download the smart pc fixer to no avail.. I tried the strait download and the mirror but it will not download. I would like a phone number I can talk to a real person so as to resolve this problem before my time runs out. It states that today is my last day to enter for the chances to win the above prizes. My name is Larry Brumett and I have been a member for years.....I us the address lbsure_2@yahoo.com. Please respond asap as I don't seem to be able to fix the problem. Respectfully, Larry

It stated on November 12,2014 I won $25,000.00 have not received it.

On November 12,2014 going towards evening I was searching in the PCH search engine to win the $25,000.00.
$25,000.00 PCH GWY.NO.3816
While I was searching on different websites I got a pop up stating CONGRATULATIONS LINDA YOU WON! "something like that" all completely red in the background stating also PCH team will at my door to deliver my check on November 17,2014. I waited for that day and it never happened. Waited not too long after that, left a message on Debra Holland PCH BLOG, TELLING HER WHAT I JUST STATED TO THIS COMPLAINT A DAY LATER, ON MY FACEBOOK THE PCH TEAM APOLOGIZING STATING THEY MAKE mistakes too in a indirect way. so I figured to wait. still no winnings and also I received a emailed about a month ago from PCH stating the person that won $25,000.00 would win the $10,000.00 A WEEK FOR LIFE PCH GWY.NO.4900.

Reality Check

For all you people above who claim you never ordered a product from PCH (and yet a product mysteriously appeared on your doorstep) the fact of the matter is you did order this product. You clicked where you should not have. Stop clicking on those products if you do not want to order them you stupid ignorant people!

You are never going to win at this PCH lottery "game". Just click the X in the upper right hand corner of your browser window.

Now, was that so hard?

Same happen to me.

It funny that I got a statement with the bill on the e-mail,saying that I order this stuff which I wasn't aware,so I try to call customer service on Saturday night.There was a answering system,saying ,"Please call on Wednesday,because there will be a HIGH VOLUME of calls on Monday and Tuesday" Can you believe that ? Next thing you will know,the package wil be at my door ! I want to stop the shipment before it too late. I call Monday,the nice man from PCH on the call said to me,if the package is already there,KEEP IT! I recorded on tape! I check the tracking system from FEDEX and the LOCAL postal service,it will be DELIVER on FRIDAY 1:06 PM ,well it 1:06 with my live close circuit camera"ON" wth a monitor in front of me with the computer next to me playing the PCH games,there the person came down from the postal service and way back of my yard there a man putting up the camping tent After finishing playing the games,I went to the back door, package was MISSING,STOLEN! WHAT GOiNG ON???
I callled ,he said keep it. I called MY CITY LOCAL POST OFFICE,HE SAID,WELL IT STOLEN. After all the packages that I got from PCH,it did not happen ,but when there package that i didn't order,it STOLEN! This don't make sense! Did they read my e-mails at the postal service?Is this part of the NSA listen to my calls? I think it a SETUP! Even at the ATM,they locked me out on the same week! SOUND CRAZY? I hope they won't bill me or it a scam between the post office and PCH.

The time has come to destroy PCH. They lie. They cheat. They waste our time.
How can we get together?
What can we do to either get PCH to pay out some prizes or get them to close?

product and scam

PCH is a double scam. The products are junk and over priced once you get hit with a ridiculous shipping cost.They say they are in Port Washington ,NY. I went looking for an office and could not find it. Now that is a scam. No winner except for some homeless looking people. those are payoffs.

pch 'superfan'

the new suck -u-in token game (to win what? -oh a 'chance' to buy a win to win nothing)something() is the "superfan) scratch offs. for the first week a minimum on 1,000 tokens, as of today an amount back to their crappy win of 100 token. The whole site is a joke, just a means of wasting time. I once knew a woman who would dress up, do her hair and wait, ALL DAY because she got a letter in the mail saying she won. Good thing she didnt use the new she would have driven all the residents mad waiting to get on the net because, she was going to win, the COMPUTER told her so.

These people really suck, real people dont win, just people they pay off to act on tv! must be I've never known anyone who won even 5 lousy bucks!!

PCH Lies

I have been entering PCH sweepstakes and playing their stupid crooked games for years. Nothing is really random. But recently I “won" a total of $640.00 on one of the match games. Did they pay? No they claimed an error in their system. Never an error when nothing is won. They pay out when they feel like it. It's a scam like any other scam. If anyone has had a similar experience and would like to join me in a class action suit please reply here. I have already contacted my attorney.

constant web site problems & no wins

I have been playing pch for three years and I think it is a rip off and only a comercial tool for advertisement.
I have played all kinds of games from lotto,slots,blackjack & bingo plus entered all kinds of sweepstakes online and I have not so much as won a $ 10.00 gift certificate.
Most of the time I cant even play due to pch website problems.
PCH needs to correct their website problems and have better odds for people who play everyday.
