“Went from Great game site to awful game-site ”

Written on: 21/03/2013

POGO was once a great game-site now at best it is mediocre and rarely is it at it's best. Java issues abound. Tech "specialists" cant even fix games. I have been a member for almost 10 years and this will be my final year… Read Full Review

“Ads get me down”

Written on: 16/03/2013

I love dominoes. I know i can't get above a certain point in my ratings, the dominoes seem to be fixed sometimes to keep you going. A hate all the ad breaks, theres too many and people disappear out of the game during them. I dont use the chat with the games as some people can be quite nasty and rude, they need striking off the games. There's really too many ads, that would be the worst thing i hate about it. Sometimes you are playing and a note comes in, your opponent is in the room but… Read Full Review

“The demise of pogo”

How can Pogo survive if they keep going the way they are.

“oh god the ads”

Written on: 08/03/2013 by test4564546 (1 review written)

on page ads i can deal with, but interrupting you in the middle of the game to show you a non-skippable ad that lasts 35 seconds?!?! nobody waits around and stares at the ad for that length of time, they go browse another site and come back to their game. the worst part is this 35 second ad runs every 5 minutes. So if an ad pops on the screen and you go visit facebook for 4 minutes to wait out the 35 second ad. another ad will come up after 1 minute. this can get very tedious … Read Full Review

“Pogo poor treatment of players and their forum”

Written on: 03/03/2013

i have been a member of pogo for a couple of years and things seemed good until last year when when here in the UK they suddenly got rid of some people who were responsible for promotions etc and since then apart from very poor prizes (keyring or mousemat) which would equate to less than a couple of quid, i found that they were offering nothing not even allowing UK players to enter any promotions not even for some tokens. i then raised the issues of prizes on pogo forum and like quite a few… Read Full Review

“homepage sucks, ad on homepage even though we pay for...”

Written on: 03/02/2013 by bigbill1961 (1 review written)

Loyal paying customers were blind-sided with a HORRIBLE new homepage. Now, even though I paid for a subscription with no ads, there is an ad staring at me each time I go to the site. I wonder how legal that is? I am quite confident that pogo will not care, but I will not be renewing. I've already re-subscribed to Gamesville, and there are a ton of other sites that offer decent free games. Pogo thinks way too much of themselves. If you try to complain in pogo forums they often block you or some… Read Full Review

“Pogo is rubbish since the Brits took it over”

Written on: 31/12/2012 by berteinstein (1 review written)

I used to really enjoy Pogo and was just about to pay for membership when it was taken over by the Brits. Ever since then it has gone downhill badly. Games only load if the moon is in the right phase. Complaints are ignored. No customer service. At this rate it will be out of business in a year or two. Perhaps someone who knows about customer service will take it over… Read Full Review

Pogo is run by EA, and they're American, so sorry to puncture your anti-British conspiracy rant....

“Pogo Is Crashing & Burning”

Written on: 30/10/2012

I used to love playing on this site, but everyone has been having problems for about the past 2 years with games not loading, freezing, etc. Instead of fixing the problems, Pogo/EA just blames everyone's computer. You have to use specific Java, Flash, etc. to possibly play a few games. I have never seen anything go downhill so quickly as Pogo. They have zero in the way of customer service. They use volunteers who are ignorant and sarcastic on the forum pages. You are banned from input if… Read Full Review

Yes the new changes suck. i've been playing Euchre on Pogo for years. Very disappointed with new apparently thoughtless changes. Freezing often, can't say Good Game before adverts take over, not user friendly after changes.

“Not worth much”

Written on: 27/10/2012

Pogo.com used to be a great, fun site to play all sorts of games with strangers and friends alike. However, the site has undergone some changes that have ruined the site entirely. A year ago, this site would have been a 4-star rating. But now, the site forced numerous advertisements - even more than they used to. They have taken away a lot of the games that used to be free and required people to pay for Club Pogo to enjoy them, added totally useless "Gems" in a pattern akin to equally… Read Full Review

“The Best Game Site I Know!”

Written on: 20/10/2012 by ShesSoSilly (2 reviews written)

I do occasionally visit other sites but I love Pogo.com and use it everyday, literally. I think the price (Which turns out to be 11 cents a day) it costs for a Club Pogo membership is so worth all the entertainment I get from it! But even if you don't want to go Club Pogo you can still get so much fun out of the free games. I guess this is different for every individual but the perks appeal to me personally because the badges for the games are my hobby, I love all of the games this site has to… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/10/2012

I also want to add that so many problems that people complain about are solvable on their own computers. I honestly RARELY ever have any kind of problems playing games. The only problems I've had were before I learned how to keep my own computer up to date and compatible, and when the site has some temporary glitches after a big change which are fixed shortly.

That's why I mentioned the forums because there are so many helpful people there, which often can be more helpful than the actual costumer service. (Of course not with billing issues because its basically members helping other members.)

Also if the price for Club Pogo is too expensive for you, look into using CokeRewards and redeeming a membership.

Or use something like Swagbucks.com and redeem Ultimate Game Cards and use those for gems or a membership. There are so many ways to get free membership and gems.
