PCHgames Manager Danny Answers More Fan Questions!
Hi everyone! As promised, we’re back with even MORE answers to fan questions about PCHgames. If you remember from my post last Friday, we asked fans on the PCHgames Fan Page on Facebook to comment with any questions they had about our site. PCHgames Product Owner Danny answered a lot of those questions of Friday, but he has even more for you today! So let’s get to it…
Karen P.: How do you determine the number of tokens awarded for each game?
Danny: We base the token awards on two factors: difficulty and time. We start out by playing the game many, many times and looking at what score we are able to achieve in a certain amount of time. We then come up with score ranges and assign a token payout. The games that are more difficult or require a longer time to complete (like Jigsaw) will generally have a higher token payout.
Anita N John T.: What does leveling up do?
Danny: Leveling or leveling up is related to your Player Rank on PCHgames. Check out the “Gaming Elite” on our homepage. You can see which players have the highest rank on the site. Each week we award tokens to the top players!
Debra K.: How do you pick the winners when we enter for prizes with game tokens…is it random with a computer, do you pick favorites or throw a dart at an email addy?
Danny: It’s a totally random drawing done by computer. It’s a good thing too, because I’m terrible at darts and we’d end up with a bunch of tiny holes in the office wall.
Diana P.: What do you like most about your job?
Danny: I’ve been with PCH for almost 12 years now, and I’d have to say the best part is that there has always been an opportunity to grow here. I started my career working in technical support and about 2 years ago began working on the PCHgames website. The best part about working on PCHgames is creating opportunities for people to win prizes. We are always looking for ways to incorporate more chances to win on the site.
Sally Jean M.: Can you make an app for Android phones that opens up with the PCH game toolbar and games?
Danny: We’re working very hard on bringing all the fun of PCHgames to phones and other mobile devices.
