Throwback Thursday: How PCHgames Became Better Than Ever!

Did you catch our last Throwback Thursday for PCHgames? We talked all about how your favorite free gaming site has changed over the years. And because there have been so many improvements along the way, we’re back with more to show you!

Take a look below to see how the game layout looked back in 2012. Do you notice how some of the core features like the Token Payouts, Five Word Reviews, and of course that all-important PLAY NOW button are hidden behind tabs and use a tiny font?

In the top right corner, you can see a “Spin Now!” pop-up, encouraging you to play the Instant Win wheel. Would you believe me when I said that was the ONLY Instant Win Chance we had at the time? Today, between the Instant Win Path and our entire category of Instant Win games, we have nearly a dozen ways for you to win EVERY DAY!

Now let’s look at our site today.

Huge, bright, PLAY NOW button? Check.
Clear Token Payouts? Check.
5 Word Reviews? “Good Luck to All Players!” (Check.)

What do YOU think? It looks a lot better, right?

Before we take a trip down memory lane with the games themselves, let’s look a closer look at the Token Payout tables. In the table below, we can see how the old site awarded tokens. Let’s see, 7 tiers of tokens, paying out between 5 and 50 tokens per play. Not a bad range, and plenty of tokens for our top players, right?

Well, we here at PCHgames weren’t satisfied. We wanted to reward all of our players with more tokens across the board, especially those who have built up their gaming skills! If we look below, we can see that now the token rewards BEGIN with a 50 token payout, and top out at 250 Tokens! How great is that?

Finally, let’s take a look back at how the games themselves were presented. If we look below, we can see Prize Patrol Party game relegated to the left side of the screen, wedged in by a lot of other noise and images.

How does that same game look today? Well, it’s front and center, just like it should be! Our new clean design allows you better access to all of your old favorites and the new classic games. Plus, Prize Patrol Party has been upgraded as well! It now has a daily chance to win $100 instantly!

As always, good luck, and happy gaming!

PCH Tokens Give You More Ways To Win Exciting Prizes

What are PCH tokens

 

We often get asked about PCH Tokens.  What Are They?  What Are They Used For?  How Do I Use My PCH Tokens?  They’re all great questions and ones we love because, like so much about PCH, the answers include the opportunity to win exciting prizes!

So, let’s start at the beginning. What are PCH Tokens?

PCH Tokens are used exclusively by PCH to give anyone age 18 or over who enters a PCH Sweepstakes or plays PCH games, a way to enter to win monthly prize drawings.  Tokens don’t have a monetary value and you can’t use them to buy products from PCH, but you can use them to enter to win great prizes!

 How To Get Tokens

Any time you enter a Sweepstakes at PCH.com and every time you play a game at PCHGames.com you collect tokens.  The more you enter and the more you play, the more tokens you collect.  So being a regular can really pay off!

Tokens can be used to go for different prizes of different values. The higher the prize value, the higher the number of tokens required to enter.  So once you’ve started collecting tokens, the best thing to do is go to the Token Redemption Center at pch.com/redeem. Or click on Token Redemption Center, which can be found just under your token balance at the top of PCH.com and PCHGames.com.

 The Redemption Center

The Redemption Center is where you get the big picture on how much you can enter to win with your tokens and it’s also where you redeem them! You can access your tokens any time you want and there is never any cost involved!  Once you log in to the Redemption Center, you’ll see your token balance at the top of the screen.  The number of tokens needed to enter to win a prize can vary from 150 up to a few thousand.  Every month we hold new drawings for dozens of popular prizes including everything from Amazon.com gift cards and iPod® shuffles to must-have home accessories and fast cash – and you can go for as many prizes as your tokens allow.

Tokens Never Expire

If you’re a faithful PCHGames.com player or a frequent visitor to any of the PCH websites, you’re probably piling up enough tokens to go for great prizes all the time.  But if you don’t use them right away – no worries – tokens never expire!  And the prizes just keep on coming!  Winners are notified of their prizes either by Express Mail or via e-mail and previous months winners are listed on our blog at blog.pch.com.

So have fun earning and redeeming your tokens!   And if you have any other questions, please let us know and we’ll be happy to help you out.
