ALBERTVILLE, Ala. - Thursday, the Prize Patrol from the Publishers Clearing House made a stop in Albertville to deliver a $1 Million Dollar Prize to Edwin Walker. However, Mr. Walker wasn’t home.

Howie Guja, the Prize Patrol Leader, found out where Walker worked and surprised him at his place of employment with the Surprise Winnings.

Mr. Walker had been on his lunch break and was coming back from Cullman when we was surprised.

Walker said had been entering the Sweepstakes for many years and had won some smaller prizes but nothing significant, until now.

Guja said winners are never notified in advance of the prize delivery and many times no one is home when the Prize arrives. But not to worry, the Prize Patrol will seek out the winner whether they are shopping, at work, out on an errand, or other business away from home.

Mr. Walker said he plans to share his winnings with his Church, make some home renovations, and help his family.

However, chances have been better in recent years with the rise of work-from-home jobs.

Guja said maybe four out of Ten winners aren’t home for the special announcement.
