Who won the pch sweepstakes?

User Avatar
I won Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes. I am very grateful to God and the PCH sweepstakes team. How did I do this? I have faith and I am patient. I learned the power of positive thinking is very real. What you think is what you will draw to you. If you tell yourself you "can't do something. You will prove yourself right. If you think "I will never..." you won't do what it is you desire. I recommend the book, "The Secret." It explain how we can manifest what we want and need by living with gratitude and having faith you Will reach your goal eventually. It's not magic. Having faith and visualizing yourself already in the place you want to be, doing the things you want to do will show up at the right time. You have to maintain faith and have gratitude for what you visualized is amazingly powerful. The praise, watch what you wish for, is true. So, see yourself positively, have faith and don't doubt the process. Believe with all your heart and soul you are worthy. This is an important part of the process. Until whatever you are visualizing shows up, practice living with positive thinking and gratitude.

What is the Tel-Connect telephone card game sweepstakes online?

User Avatar
It is not a game you can play online. It is a gambling outfit, which made itself legal by using "telephone time" as the avenue of purchase. You have to go to a Tel-Connect gambling club, where you play slot machine games online to win money. These games are NOT games of chance, however, they are pre-determined games by way of ticket numbers. In each game you play you will notice a ticket number at the bottom or top of the screen. This ticket number changes consecutively each time you press play. When you change games you will notice a different sequence of ticket numbers. However, sometimes in order to change the odds of winning (against the players), you will notice that when you change to a different game the same sequence of ticket numbers will appear. This is merely a way of making you think that you are changing to a different game that might have a better chance of winning, however, in realty you are in the same roll of tickets and the cosmetics of the game is just switched to make it look like a different game. Be very careful, because these game tickets are predetermined and are not a game of chance like real slots in Vegas or the State Lotteries.

Can I claim a winning lottery ticket if I havent filed taxes yet this year?

User Avatar
Claiming your lottery winnings DOES NOT have any thing to do with the filing of your 1040 federal income tax for the tax year 2009. BUT you should be getting all of your federal and state tax forms completed completely and correctly this year by OCTOBER 15, 2010.

Is there free online lottery playing in India?

User Avatar
there is no FREE word in business, and lottery is also a kind of business in India, some companies conducting this business through government authority letter and some are not. While those companies who are claiming about the legality they are paid some money to collect the authentic letter from government. We have to keep this thing to our mind, that legal claimed lottery and illegal lotteries both are same, but illegal lotteries are not paying the money to the government so they can pay back to the people better then the legal lotteries, cause there are not such government in Indian territory who are going to pay the lottery winners directly.

Was any big lottery ever had all series numbers drawn at random?

User Avatar
I am not sure if I understand the question. I think this is what you want to know: For "big" lotteries, the kind that runs on a regular basis with one or more drawings per week, the numbers are set up in such a way that it should take a while (on average) for a winner or winners to emerge. It would be a huge problem if there are so few combinations that a winner or winners appear at every drawing. The prizes would be small, few people would play, and this certainly wouldn't amount to a good revenue source for states. There are usually 10's or 100's of millions of different possibilities for the bigger lotteries. Let's say that a game has drawings twice a week, and there are one hundred million possibilities. It would take nearly a million YEARS before the game could even be PLAYED the number of times equalling the number of possible combinations. But, it's better than that. WAY before every combination is hit, there will be millions and millions of duplicates, combinations that come up a second time or more, before every combination is hit. I'm not going to try doing the calculations, but I wouldn't be surprised if it would take billions of years before every combination actually gets hit. Just imagine the time in the distant future when one half of all possibilities has been hit. By then there will already have been countless duplications. but at that point, any series that wins will have a 50% probability of being a series that has already won at some time in the past. You get the picture.

Can you tell me the winners of the 2007 North-American Sweepstakes Lottery?

User Avatar
Fake Check Scam; Chris Chambers & John Thomas (likely pseudo names); Greenwood Mgmt Inc; 330 King Street, Kingston, Ontario - M1K 3A5 Canada; Tel: +1(416) 836-8765 is transmitting fraudulent 'Winning Notification' of $40,000. 'North American Lottery Game'. This criminal enterprise is forwarding fraudulent varying $ checks approximating $4,000. for 'Applicable Surcharges / Govt Tax' which the recipient is asked to RETURN $2,950. to Greenwood to receive the balance of your 'winnings'...RIGHT! Problem is the preliminary (and only check you will ever see) is a forged check to our subsidiary; TCS Mgmt. We have alerted the authorities and the criminals will be apprehended. The checks sent to victims are forgeries, but they're so realistic that even bank tellers may be fooled. By the time the checks bounce, the victims have already wired the money to the crooks. Because bank customers are responsible for the checks they deposit, the victims of these scams are left to repay the bank the money they withdrew against the bad check. I've received notification of having been selected as a 2007 north American sweepstakes,one of 25.I've not done anything to claim the prize for fear of a scam. If you are in the same situation please write back HELLO THERE! YES YOU ARE RIGHT, THIS IS FRAUD! I CHECKED UP ON IT! GO TO THIS WEBSITE www.westminstersavings.com ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE YOU WILL SEE THIS November 21, 2007 lottery fraud CLICK ON IT! IT WILL TELL YOU EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO KNOW! THANK YOU, I READ YOUR ANWSER CAUSE I WAS ONE OF THE SELECTED ONES TOO. I WAS EXCITED TO RECIEVE IT, BUT WAS CAUTIOUS. I GOT A HOLD OF THE MEMBER ON THE LETTER, TOLD HIM THAT I DIDN'T DEPOSIT THE CHECK BECAUSE IT WAS FRAUD, AND HE HUNG UP ON ME! GLAD TO HAVE HELPED.
