What happens when you win, but aren't contacted?

Happened to notice on a post that I had won one of the contests, but received no contact notification or message about how to claim. I started a "conversation" with the person who posted the contest and received no reply. What's next?

I agree and I've done that.

To be clear, it's different if you are contacted and then don't respond in a timely manner - as it's expected the contest organizers would move on to a different entrant. However, if they are still advertising that you won and you haven't actually won anything - then that would lead folks to believe that there are actual winners in these contests - when in fact, there are not.
At the very least, there should be a disclaimer stating that prizes have not actually been awarded.

Hello! These prizes are being fulfilled by the sponsor and you should have gotten an email from them directly. I'm replying to your DM now.

I can confirm that there are winners in these contests, I am sitting on my very comfy Noblechair as I type.
Very nice and Congrats!

It's entirely possible my notification got lost en route - though I did offer feedback that PCGamer may want to consider notifying the winners as a facilitator of these contests - rather than just rely on the sponsor.
