PCH ripoff

Have you ever seen (Here's 1,000 tokens for your patience) playing Keno? It seems really nice of them but nothing was wrong to have patience for. It's like they know I am going to win something by removing the keno card and giving me a 1,000 tokens. I might get several more so I wouldn't be suspicious. Also when I play Keno to fast they remove some of my 5 bonus cards at the end (the ones that give out big tokens). I stop playing lotto when they started to put advertisement on about every card. Today I had played everything I could between keno cards but lotto. So I thought I'll play lotto. They didn't give me any tokens for the cards I played. So I quit. I have ad remover. The people I bought ad remover from made a deal with pch. So when you play lotto you see a black block where the ads are and stare at it til the ad is done. Same thing for pch sweepstakes. Some days I ignore it and other days I just want to quit pch forever.

I miss Mahjongg TOO (@ games.pch.com!

pch.com

pch.com hasn't had one day that I've played that I didn't get ripped off on tokens because of technical issues. Every single day pch has technical issues! What's up with that? Why doesn't pch work on their site? It gets real frustrating when a site doesn't work right. I'm hoping that they fix their site and in the near future but I'm not counting on it because they haven't done anything yet over these years. Wishful thinking....kinda like winning on their site....questionable and not fun anymore.

Pch never pays ANYTHING EVER

I have been playing with PCH for 29 years... Very disappointing. Its not just games of odds, they also badger and harp on a person if they don't play or Search, and essentially threaten people and behave like we have nothing else on the planet to do EVER! I can give it my all and go for broke with the best of them, but after awhile you gotta wonder wheres the incentive. And what drives them to send threatening emails?? Whats their end game? What are they hoping for??

Pch has too many technical issues

Pch needs to work on their site issues! Slow, too many pharmaceutical commercials, crashes all the time, and no tokens when ever there's a technical issue-which is lots of times a day! Getting sick of how crappy the site works! Is pch a scam anyways? I wonder.

Publishers Clearing House { Keno Rip Off }}

Publishers clearing house is now having to take many of the players off the Keno board at the last minute.The so called Top Token leaderboard. Even if you are the top token leader and get the email saying you have won they will not contact you and tell you why just you have violated a rule. About four months ago they did a update on the Keno game in which many extra cards that you can play. It is a problem that was done in house. So people play the cards that come before them. No rules on even how to play keno. So not real sure how you can break the rules. Now they are so called monitoring the game when ever and are alienating players and customers and will not even give a reason. Got me and my wife for over $2,500.00. Stop payment on Tournament games and Keno?? which rules were broke??? Now they block you can not win on anything They will not tell you that either if you just wasting your time playing anything.. But no Tournament games or Keno. All the games are a 24 hour games. Tournaments and Keno. So after us senior citizens sit up and do a full days worth of work. They just decide they don't want to pay seems like. Players beware as they are taking off players for no reason. Not a rich person or wouldn't even be playing the site for extra cash but anyone now aof a way to get any justification on this problem please let me know. They have let this Keno problem go on for about 4 months now when it should of been fixed by the website developers.

Faulty Obsessive Technical Issues

WHAT A SCAM!!! Every-time you get to a bonus, the page has technical issues. They say "OOPS-WE are experiencing Technical Issues", yet when you call them they blame your "cache/cookies" and read their script on their computers. Unfortunately it isn't confined to bonuses either. I called tonight again, with the representative stating "It's not cash, just pretend tokens" . Maybe my pretend order will reach them soon! I then asked her for her supervisor, which was transferred to a (knowingly by her) "CLOSED" office with no message machine. I called back in which I then was transferred overseas, where that rep wanted to go home, as it was "five minutes til she was off work". No one cares- so why should I? My "check's in the mail!!!!" WHAT A FRAUD!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sweepstakes online, pch game app

I play the pch games on my iPhone. The past few weeks I play sweepstakes online when I reach the processing entries it messages “safari can’t open the server can’t be found” so I can’t play missing out on collecting tokens and money opportunities. I also have the pch game app, I try to open the app it loads and stops at 5% that’s it will not open. The same goes for the pch lotto app loads and stops at 5% will not open. I’ve never had these types of problems before.HELP!!! Please correct these problems as quickly as you can. Thank You. henrymarin1953@gmail.com

Tired of going in circles to win nothing

All u win are tokens. You have enter to win the , Rewards u thought u earned but that never ever happened for me. These web sites who never pay out believe we have nothing productive to do with our days but play their cat and mice games with hope that we are closer to winning. I'm so tired of tbroken promises and Noth ng to show for my time .

PCH Lotto and Games have a OOPS!

When playing Publishers Clearing House Lotto and Games since 1/21/2005 and when trying to score on one of these PCH games up comes "OOPS! we are experiencing Technical difficulties. Please try again! " and if not that a "Oh no! A glitch! Don't worry, you won't lose your spins! Try Again and these games sometimes takes more than (3) HOURS! and while trying to play Lotto or Games the screen has up to (3 - 4) Advertisements and a commercial on the middle of the screen and these operate normal and when those end and I start to play and the OOPS! come on again and again and once in a while the Lotto or Games comes "Normal" again and the next game the OOPS! comes again and at the bottom right the screen has "Waiting for lotto.pch.com and waiting for pch.com and other "WAITING FOR!!" and this is really FRUSTRATING!. This has me thinking that PCH is a scam because the lotto and games have problems but a customer playing a PCH has to watch the Advertisements and Commercial which I am sure PCH GETS PAID for doing the Advertisements and with (3 to 4) every time a person plays PCH Lotto or Games. What does a person Win? doing these games???

Same complaints

I have the same complaints as everyone else. Only I wonder why there is no where on their site to lodge complaints. And why when it is their technical issue, I lose the chance to play that game. They say "it has been played" just because I logged into it. I got NO points for it, but "PLAYED" it!

New KENO

The new Keno presents the Welcome Screen , I press Play Now,
The welcome scroll screen appears, but won't proceed,
I request Reload, Play Now and it proceeds,
I hit Reveal All, and it reboots to the Welcome Screen

This may reoccur several times before it move to the next play.

Some adds run and then repeat before it moves on to the next play.

I can maybe get four games at most in the 18 minuets

Then it goes to the ready for the drawing and only recognizes that I played 1 or two out of the four games completed

Too Glitchy-Slow

I WAS addicted to your games. They run glitchy and lock up frequently. I understand that I will NEVER win any small amount of cash nor prizes. I NEVER purchased any products from your site because of the complaints. I would find these products cheaper at Walgreens or CVS. The magazine websites have better deals. Since your games are AGGRAVATING to play,I found the same games as 'stand-alone' apps and now play them without the glitchy-slow and I FINISH EVERY game,now. I will unsubscribe from PCH-Games because it's too damn slow and INFESTED with ads Which I ( F U C K E N ) HATE to begin with. Thanks for having a slow-glitchy website now I can spend my time more constructively. I go for daily walks now. I'll still enter the PCH (NEVER-To -WIN) sweepstakes because I don't think they're a scam. However, NEVER with a purchase and if I win it,I will specifically state that. I will use the old school mailings since I work at the Post Office.

Stalling of games

It seems like your organization is loaded with complaints and no solutions. Games stall, have to register, too many technical errors, adds go on, cant finish games.
Is your organization doing false advertising? You show people winning, but make it impossible to for people to win. Have ordered lots of your overpriced items, trying to earn money to pay bills. But maybe should tell people to contact their state attorney generals to see what is going on with your company? False advertising, doing things covertly, frustrating people, especially older people that would like to enjoy games and fill their time. But you don't want people winning!

PCH GAMES RUNNING TOO SLOW

It seems I am not the only one having trouble with your games. I have been playing your games for several years now and they used to work great. They were working real good a couple of weeks ago around Christmas time, I am assuming it was because a lot of people were busy with the holidays and were not playing as much.So the sites were not overloaded.You need to up grade your site so it can handle the amount of visitors it has. It is not much fun playing a game that stops every few seconds then you end up running out of time all of a sudden. It is getting where I am am not as interested in playing as I used to.PLEASE FIX I WANT TO ENJOY PLAYING THE GAMES.

diamond status

I have passed the 150,000,000 token marker and I have yet to be upgraded to black diamond status. Could this please be corrected. Unless of course, there is something else I need to do to obtain the black diamond status and I am unaware of it. Thank you for your time and consideration. denissplaine@gmail.com

TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES

About 25% of the games and Danielle's Token Surprises do NOT load properly and trying to re-load just takes you to the next game and you don't score any tokens. This is a recurrent issue and the 25% is a very conservative estimate. It seems that PCH is loading so many ads (ad nauseum) that the ads create issues loading the games properly. And, the ads are too long as well. Watching the same ad hundreds of times won't make me want to purchase the product. It has the opposite effect.

Will PCH 'fix' the problem? One can only hope.
