  1. Your system will only let me play certain games what’s up? Is this some kind of making someone always waste time.

  2. complaint is I just got through playing Jacks for cash. My tokens were 37,116,142 once I went to queens for cash, my tokens went to 37,040,00 . This happens every day. Please look into the matter.

  3. I was just playing the popping balloons game and i went to pop a balloon and it refused to let me pop the balloon. i believe it was the 10 thousand dollar winner. that is not fair or right and you need to make it right please. i know you will say it wasn’t a winner but how will i know now.

    I received a check from PCH for $100. I did not sure what I won and investigated. It turned out that this was a phishing expedition and had I deposited it, it would have been rejected but they would have had my account information and could have cleared out my bank account. I think if you play the PCH, you should expect a. not winning anything,b. a flood of solicitations to play more PCH games, even the ones you have already played, phone calls of people peddling you stuff despite the fact that you did not ask for it and now, phishing expeditions. Be careful. I will continue to investigate
