At PCHgames, We Like To Play Fair!

Back in my grade school days, summer vacations were spent playing street games with the neighborhood kids. Sometimes those games were rough, and when our blood was high, you could hear one of us shouting, “Hey, that’s not fair! You cheated!” Then we’d yell for our mothers, and someone would get a smack on the fanny, be pulled out of the game, and maybe even denied a treat from the ice cream truck! Oh the horror!

These days, if I play any games at all, I do it at PCHgames  — “Your Favorite Online Destination For Playing Games And Winning Prizes!” Yet even there, as I’ve discovered, some people don’t play fair or by the rules.

So who do you call when you feel that someone is taking an unfair advantage? Why, the “CheatBusters,” of course!

At PCHgames, the head “CheatBuster” is Danny. Danny told me, “I take cheating very seriously, and I make every effort possible to ensure that our winners have played honestly and fairly.” So when he recently received numerous complaints of impossibly high game scores and excessive token collection, he felt we should tell you what PCH is doing to ensure a level playing field.

Here are some of the measures we’re taking:

• We’ve updated our Terms of Use (section 15) to formally disallow the use of multiple browser tabs or windows to play multiple games simultaneously in order to expedite token earnings and/or give an unfair advantage in regular game play or game tournaments.

• We thoroughly investigate any complaint of excessively high scores on the leaderboard.

• Danny literally spends hours looking at scores and token earnings to ensure that sweepstakes and tournament winners haven’t cheated.

We know that if cheaters can win on PCHGames, the site won’t be fun or fair for anyone, so we do our absolute best to make sure that everyone who plays has a fair shot at our sweepstakes and prizes.

And when cheaters get caught, watch out! Anyone who engages in unfair methods, or otherwise breaches the Terms of Use Agreement on PCHgames, may have their account terminated without notice and their access to the site blocked. Any entries they submitted will be invalid, any prizes and winnings they may have been entitled to will be void and/or forfeited, and those already received will have to be given up on demand.

Because at PCHgames, we like to play fair! Our winners never cheat and cheaters never win!

Have fun, and good luck!

    you put certain player on your most up to date and faster servers and let us lower ones play so the ads make the money for your special people. you are cheaters and it is not a level playing field because some players win all of the time.

    Hard to play with “sorry we are experiencing technical difficulties”

    These people who are winning or scoring high everyday have found a way to crack your scoring. No one is that lucky!

      Especially Diana R who got 202,000 tokens today for what will be first place and over 146,000 tokens yesterday along with many finishes either first or in the top 10 pages of the leaderboard. My best total in 2 years was 144,000 tokens and the closest second was 119,000.

      I used to play only my laptop and once scored just over 144,000. Then I heard you could play on a mobile phone or tablet using an app for PCH.com and I used my smartphone getting an extra 30,000 tokens on average. However, never have gotten close to the 144,000 because I rarely get more than 5,000 or 7,500 on the token vaults. If one had a tablet too, then one could expect an extra 30,000 on average as the laptop has more games and therefore more tokens. So, following so far? If I score lets say 60,000 on the phone and if I had a tablet, 75,000 on the laptop before the two vaults and then got two 50,000 scores on each of the vaults, that would total 235,000 and there you have how they get that much. Today I scored 120,100 with a total of 15,000 from the two vaults so, if I got two 50,000 token awards, then that would have added 85,000 to give me 200,100. Most of the always winners probably play at least a laptop and two other devices that use apps. Doing it on another computer on line does not work as your log in and password show you already played but not so on the app.
