PCH's One Million Dollars A Year For Life sweepstakes accepts entries online, by mail and by phone, and it awards the winner $1 million per year for his entire life. The sweepstakes is one of many offered by the company, and no purchase is required to enter.
Participants can submit one entry per day through each entry method. Each PCH website is considered a unique entry method, so the participant can submit an entry everyday on each website. Each mail submission must be sent separately.
If the winning number isn't returned within a set time frame, PCH holds a second drawing and the winner receives $1 million. However, that prize is only awarded once, not yearly.
A similar sweepstakes offered by PCH, with the potential for a higher payout, is the $1 Million a year "Forever" sweepstakes. The winner receives $1 million per year for the rest of his life, and he chooses another person to pass the gift down to after he dies. That person then receives the same $1 million per year for the rest of his life. PCH also offers sweepstakes with a $10 million prize and sweepstakes that offer $5,000 or $7,000 per week for the rest of the winner's life.
