      • kelly jon hobbs, I think I see the issue. You’ve created multiple accounts, but if you ever did a password retrieval it wouldn’t work since the emails are wrong (for example @3gmail.com or @agmail.com) so you keep creating new accounts.

        Please contact Player Services and they can help you get down to one account with the correct email for you. To contact them click log on to a user name, and click GSN help at the top of the main gsn.com page, then click the contact player services link.

        Please include all the user names you can think of (kellyhobbs6543 is not one so it may have been a different number combination), as well as the email you wnat attached to the account so if you ever need to retrieve your name or password, they can be sent to you.

        Good luck!

  1. Hello there!

    I have won two $25 gas cards which I used for a vacation about six months ago – it really helped out!

    Anyhow, up here in Northern Michigan, and actually in most of Michigan, we don’t have Exxon or Mobil, so is there any possibility to get any gas cards at other stations? Believe me, this isn’t a complaint – it’s just a suggestion!

    Thanks so much – my next goal is to try and get on a game show!!! That’s on my “bucket list.”

    Marti

  2. same here- Exxon moved out- I noticed that is the featured card. We still have Citgo, Shell, BP., Kroger, hmmm a Kroger card or Visa gift card would cover that ;)

  3. I just found an extra 500 oodles in my account listed as an “Oodlectible Badge Bonus”! I’m thrilled, but how did that happen? What is an Oodlectible Badge Bonus?

    • Hi, if you redeem the right Oodlectibles, we’ll give you a bonus – between roughly 500 and 1500 Oodles! It’s a surprise bonus the Prize Center people have been doing for a year or two now.

  4. i am not a cash player however on certain games i am rewarded with rewards points. Can i use them if i am not a cash player and can they be converted into oodles or tokens?

    • Hi, Rewards Points can’t be used unless your a cash player. If you upgrade to a cash player, your current Rewards Points are converted to game credits. You can read more in the cash game FAQS. Do a search for “Rewards Points”

  5. I’m very disappointed in how GSN manages things. I can’t get the chachingo bingo game to lock in my numbers, I was burned for over 125,000,000 tokens and was given some lame reasoning for the fact that there was no record of my having that many tokens and now no matter what game I play I don’t have the slightest bit of a chance. Have I been blacklisted because I complained to you in the past about the missing tokens? I’ve already uninstalled GSN from my android phone….Do I need to give up on you guys or what?

    • Hi Wayne, I’m sorry for the difficulties you’re having. Please be assured we don’t blacklist people for complaining. In fact, we appreciate the feedback! I’m not sure why you’re having issues, but your best bet would be to contact Player Services. To do so, click on GSN Help at the top of the main gsn.com page after you log in to your user name. You’ll need to be logged in to see the contact player services link.

    • Hi Brad, while you can’t trade Oodles for Tokens, you can use your Oodles towards special Token Sweepstakes located here. There’s a Daily 25,000 Token Sweeps as well as a Weekly One Million Token Sweeps. Good luck if you chose to enter!

  6. GSN Angel, maybe you can answer this for me. Do some of the games award oodles for more places than other games? I looked at the leaderboards link above, and it seems off, that all games don’t award that many places. And do some games change the number of places they award at some point?

    Thanks for your help, I play Mahjonng Dimensions, but have stopped getting oodles for being on the leaderboards, so I can only guess they have stopped awarding so many places. And some games I don’t get any oodles for, even if I’m in the 200′s, so maybe they only award a hundred spots?? Don’t know.

      • To find out how many leaderboard slots earn oodles,
        click the “all games” tab,
        click the game you want,
        scroll down to the leaderboards bar, click the phrase:
        “Top Players Win Oodles! Click Here to Learn More.”
        A new window will open showing how many oodles will be awarded for each position on the leaderboard.
        Scroll down to your current position, and see your potential reward. If others play later and score higher, your position may drop lower.

  7. why can’t get oodles and monkey bonus when I click on them to watch the ad says page not available, have done the usual troubleshooting and contacted player services, checked on facebook and it seems I’m not alone with this problem. Thanks

  8. I been winning lots of money on all games but not sure how to claim the total amount in cheque form I have so many bills and this money I have won will come in handy to put me in the clear so I can be free if worries can you help in any way

  10. do accounts expire? i haven’t played for years but know i had a large amount of tokens. i mostly played swapit, chuzzle , big money and a word game. i can’t seem to get those games on my ipad, but when i logged in for the heck of it, my old user name popped right up and let me play only a few games, but not those. says something about flash player, which is not on ipad. can’t these games be more mobile device friendly? and are all my old achievements gone? thank you

  13. I HAVE HAD A COUPLE OF ADS TODAY IN WATCHING TO GET FREE OODLES, BUT I HAVE GOTTEN THEM BEFORE FOR BOTH OODLES AND TOKENS, THAT ASK WHAT MY HOUSEHOLD YEARLY HOUSEHOLD INCOME IS AND WHEN I ANSWERED THE QUESTION, IT SAID THAT THEY DID NOT HAVE AD FOR ME TO VIEW RIGHT NOW. WHAT???? I AM DISABLED AND ME AND MY HUSBAND DO NOT MAKE A BIG AMOUNT OF MONEY YEARLY, SO I CHECKED OFF THEIR LOWEST AMOUNT. BOTH TIMES TODAY WHEN I GOT THAT QUESTION I WAS TOLD THAT THERE WAS NO AD FOR ME. IT MADE ME FEEL LIKE BECAUSE I MADE LESS THAN $50,000 A YEAR, THAN I WAS JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH TO WIN SOME OODLES OR TOKENS. THAT IS VERY DEGRADING. IT WOULD NOT BE SO BAD IF THEY WOULD SAY THANKS, HERE ARE YOUR AWARD! ENJOY YOUR GAME! BUT, I GOT ZERO FOR MY TIME AND HAD TO WATCH ANOTHER AD!! WHAT BUSINESS IS THESE COMPANIES ANYWAY IF I AM A PAUPER OR A ROYAL QUEEN? I JUST THINK THIS TYPE OF AD IS JUST WRONG! I HAVE HAD ADS THAT ASK MY BIRTHDAY, SO THEY CAN SHOW AN AD THAT MIGHT INTEREST ME MORE, SUCH AS A TRAVEL AD TO MEMPHIS INSTEAD OF PAMPERS OR SOME TEENAGED ITEM. I STILL DO NOT KNOW, HOWEVER, WHY THEY WANT TO KNOW MY WHOLE BIRTHDAY INSTEAD OF ONLY THE YEAR. THEY WOULD GET THE INFO NEEDED BY JUST THE YEAR, SO I WONDER IF THIS IS A REGULAR AD OR DOES GSN HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH ASKING THE QUESTION. GSN ALREADY HAS MY PROFILE, SO I DO NOT THINK GSN IS BEHIND THE QUESTION AND I WAS TOLD THAT GSN HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ADS, PER SE, SO IS THERE AN ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION? THANKS!
