I have been a pogo member and non-member since 2001. So i have seen a few things that i think everyone who plays [and pays] and who [doesnt pay] and plays might want to know.
Every thing i say here is my opinion [correct or incorrect as it may be] . Now the big question. Do i believe the jps are real?? Yes i believe [some] are real! No i do not believe all the jps are real!! There is a way to find out if the jp winner is real or not [and not just by putting them in your friends list] that will not tell you if the person is real ! I will not tell you how i know thinking that a pogo employee may read this! But i will tell you there is a way and i know for a fact a large portion of the jp winners are not real ppl. I have seen a person win a $4, 999 jp and 2 daily drawings in the same week and never played but 1x since! Now do you know the odds in winning anything at all on pogo! I dont but its astronomical! So to win a jp and 2 daily drawings in the same week is impossible! And i mean impossible!!! Then to win and never play again is just a joke on every person who plays on pogo! Oh and did i mention he wasnt a member!!! There are many jp stories just like this! To many!!!
Heres another big reason not believe anything at all that you read about jps, daily drawings etc. On pogo!!
Cheat programs, bots, etc. There are literally thousands of these programs running at all times in virtually every room on the site! And thats a fact! Pogo will not do anything about anyone running these supposed illegal programs!! Even though they know they are running everywhere!Why you ask? Well to track down these thousands of programs would take time and cost a lot of money. These programs are being run by club pogo members and if they were to find them they would have to cancel there accounts. Theres no way they are going to lose the money coming in from these thousands of people!! If a real person wins the jp and is caught using a cheat program they dont give them the money!!Guess what the jackpot goes back to $50 and pogo pockets the $4, 999!!! Its a win, win, win situation for pogo to let them run on the site!!I dont know if pogo makes the cheat programs and sells them under a different name or not. But who else could do it better or faster than the one creating the games!! I questioned pogo many times about all the cheat programs running all over the site. There answer is always we are educating all the players about not using these programs. Not! What a joke!!! Outside of the 1 line dedicated to bots in their rules there has never been 1 thing mentioned on the site about not using cheat programs!!! This should be the first thing you read when you come on the site!! It should be put up in the chat area just like all the winners are!! [lmao] they want you to run cheat programs !! For reasons i already gave you!! I wonder how many of these bots are being run by pogo themselves? How hard would it be to set up fake accounts and run the cheat programs?? Lol not hard at all!! Would take all of 1 minute to do! Hell there are sites dedicated to pogo cheats with real ppl in them!! All u need to do is type in pogo cheats and the cheat programs are everywhere!!! Its pathetic and the people who own, run and work for pogo need to be investigated not only at the local and state levels but a full federal investigation as well!! When a business has over 1 million customers and is taking working peoples money from all over the world. And there is no one overseeing them. There is going to be nothing but crime of all kinds taking place on a daily basis! Not to have every cent supposedly won on pogo verified by an outside auditor is a crime in itsel[censored] They have no overseer, no one to report to! Do you actually believe they are not going to tell you lies!!! If you do you obviously are not from this world!!!
Jackpot spinners [lmao] these spinners are the biggest joke i have ever seen! The majority of games on the site have no jackpot on the spinner itself!! Now how is someone supposed to win the jp when there is no jp on the spinner! What, does it just magically appear for that special someone? I think not! Um with no jp on the spinner you cant win!!! So how can ppl win any jps!!!
Buying gems for badges [lmao] this is by far a bigger joke than the last one [lmao] !! Now i know its your money and you can do with it what you want!!But just think about this!!! When you buy gems for badges all you in reality are doing is paying over and over and over again to play the exact same games you already paid to play with your pogo membership!!!There is absolutely no difference in any game on the site when your paying for these badges with gems!! Its the biggest sucker play i have ever seen ppl fall for!! And if you really think ppl care about how many badges you have outside youself you better wake up!!! [pogo cares and thats it lmao] . Not one person is going to sit there and spend 2 hours of their time going thru your 1500 badges [lmao] ! Its a sucker play and thats all it is!! You give them money and you get nothing in return!! The games are the same! You would get the same entertainment just playing the game without giving them your money!!!
Tokens [lmao] absolutely worthles! Even less than nothing! These to can be purchased any where online! When you have cheat programs running 24-7-365 accumulating millions of these worthless things a week!!Hundreds of millions a year!! Its pointless to enter bogus drawings with your poultry few million tokens! I have seen ppl with over 1-2 billion worthless tokens! Do you know how long it would take an everyday real player to accumulate 1 or 2 billion tokens? Hundreds of years is how long!!! [lmao]
Non paying players [which i currently am and always will be] what a flipn joke pogo has made out themselves. Running moving advertisements that either freeze our games, slow down the games or just not letting us play at all!! Its nothing more than to tick us off so that we will get fed up with all the crap and give them money!!! Its total bullcrap! A game they want to play! I wonder how much their advertisers are going to like it when they see whats going on ! Im sure the u. S. Military is going to be very happy with them!!! Along with many others that will be contacted!!! Im sure they want to keep paying for crap [lmao] !!!
Well ppl there is plenty more to come after this so please keep up with all the latest pogo events!! And please feel free to respond. I look forward to it!!
please fix my games trying to load my pogo games but they wont load need help heres my email address [protected]@live.ca
I cancelled my Club Pogo account in 2007. Even after telling my aunt about all the problems I had with Pogo, she went out and bought Operation Mania and Mahjong Garden Deluxe anyways. Both were purchased in August of 2008, and she spent the extra money to have the CDs mailed to her. The CDs have yet to arrive, by the way, and I think it's pretty safe to assume they never will. Anyways, after a month of playing Operation Mania, the game started having problems. In the beginning, it would randomly close on her in mid-game. Now it's not even playable. It will start to load, connect to Pogo, then crash on her once it hits the main menu. She emailed Pogo asking for help. A few days later, she received a copied-and-pasted response from them with tips on fixing the problem. Her computer met the requirements to play, all drivers were current, we removed the game then redownloaded and installed it, and so on. She emailed Pogo back asking for more help, then decided she would stick to Mahjong until we could get Operation working. Of course, now Mahjong is doing the same thing. Here's where this gets really good... After going back and forth with Pogo from mid-October until earlier this month, we come to find out her registration keys for both games have somehow been compromised. Despite the fact that she has all the emails and the charges on her credit card proving she bought the damn games, Pogo claims that her registration keys were "either given away or stolen", and when they notice multiple people playing a game using the same registration key, they disable it. We have no idea how someone got a hold of her registration keys for both games. Besides me, she doesn't know anyone else who plays or has played Pogo, and wouldn't have given out her information anyway. Also, she scans constantly for viruses, malware, spyware, etc and nothing was found on her computer that could have contained a keylogger or something to that effect. The only thing we can think of is the game CDs that she never received were stolen out of the mail and possibly had a copy of the registration keys somewhere in the package. Since she has the proof that she paid for both games, she told them she either wants her money back, or new registration keys so she can play her games. Pogo's response: they won't refund her money, and she shouldn't have been sharing her registration keys. She has filed a complaint through the Better Business Bureau and contacted her credit card company to see if they will do a chargeback, so we will see what happens. But just a heads up to anyone who purchases a game through Pogo... Be careful. If something like this happens to you, don't expect any help from Pogo. As far as they are concerned, everyone playing is a cheater or thief.
need to concel my online games "pogo". my monthly charged was $5.99. thanh you, diane davis.
I have been a member since 2001. I am sick of being harassed by other players. I send complaints to pogo and all the do is send a nice little email saying..."we will look into this further" i am canceling my membership! I have never won anything on that site in 8 years. They are a scam and no one is going to win and from what i see in the previous complaints, i am not the only one. DO NOT SIGN UP WITH POGO!
Since about 8 years I play the 'free games' at Pogo (aol) but a couple of days ago I decided to become a Member! The first thing that I thought it's a little bit 'odd' was that if you pay with PayPal you have to pay 10 Dollars more! Nevertheless - I know PayPal and usually they help you if something goes wrong - I used PayPal paid the 39.99 and started to play! A few hours later I felt that this is to much money and I canceled the Membership! They tell you that you can cancel at any time and I thought that they send me the Money back as soon as the cancellation went trough! After that as I didn't get the Money I tried to go back online but my account was canceled! They didn't reimbursed me the 39.99 neither can I log on and play the Games that I paid for!
I truly think something should be done especially with so called 'Companies' like this, Money is tight for a lot of people and they just make fun of 'Idiots' like I am! I demand that they pay everybody's Money back and that the State shots them down!
They keep freezing games...booting you out, unable to connect to server when your halfway into a game and not able to play games. This is a free or pay site, I have paid for the games and the probs were solved tho now I find paying to play isn't worth it. So how can us nonpayers get all these prob solved so we can play like the players...without them doing all this ### to us nonpayers? It is unfair to those who wish to not pay to play. You can reach me at [protected]@yahoo.ca.
I.ve been a member of Club Pogo for all of a year now, but for the last two days I suddenly no longer exist...
I'm a CLub POGO member and pogo does not go by their terms of service. I've been harressed, table jacked, stalked, and have tried to report the players and pogo does nothing about it. I come on here to have fun. They charge you 39.95. You get no where with them you keep sending reports and they ignore them. Then they suspened players for scrolling but not for jarressment, or stalking, or putting stuff on your comp to totally shut it down. I have sent them reports about this and the ignore them and never get back to you on them. The players that do this never get in trouble.When they do this it's against POGO's Regulations and terms of service. SOmething needs to be done this site is a rip-off and someone needs to stop them. POGO doesn't care about the players they just care about the money and let plyers harress other players and stalk and put stuff on your comp to make it crash. I highly suggest people stay away from here it's a joke
If anyone wants to join me in a class action lawsuit against pogo, feel free to email me at [protected]@yahoo.com
I am tired of pogo allowing people to cheat, scam, harass and stalk others and doing nothing about the reports of abuse that people make. I am also tired of the fake jackpots. I am extremely tired of the fact that people can use pogo to upload viruses and stuff that affects my computer and again, pogo ignores it all...
I am ready to do something to take some action against pogo. If anyone else is tired of this same stuff, please contact me at the email address above.
I have been e-mailing back and forth for a week now with tech support (Ruth) about the Cribbage game. If you call the Pogo number [protected]), it tells you to go to the support area on their website. (That would surely be a problem if you couldn't get on Pogo at all!) For some issues, talking to a live (knowledgeable) person would probably solve the problem right then. My problem with Cribbage is that the cards are overlapping, the top turned extra card doesn't show up, you can't tell how many cards the opponent has left because they come out of nowhere, and so on. I sent my operating system info, java, and screenshots as requested. "Ruth" e-mailed the obvious delete temp file, cache, delete and reload java, etc. which I did. The third e-mail from "Ruth" gave me a solution to fix the chat input window! Where did she come up with that? That wasn't even my issue and was never mentioned by me! I just e-mailed back for the fourth time about this problem. They really need to open up some phone lines with live support and help those of us frustrated by their barbaric support system. Also, while I was looking through their tech support pages, many of their solutions are outdated. You click on a link and it's not there anymore.
No wonder they have so many complaints here and in the chat rooms! They need to show more respect for not only new players, but also the long-time (5 years for me) paying customers. At this point, I don't know if I'll ever get a solution to my problem with Cribbage (my favorite game).
