Oodletorial – Auctions, and Sweepstakes, and Prizes, Oh My!

Happy Friday! I had a recent request from robovendor to do an Oodletorial on how the Auctions and Sweepstakes work in the Prize Center If this is something you’re interested in, hop into the Oodlemobile, and buckle up while we take a quick tour. Please be sure to keep hands and feet in the vehicle at all times. 😉

First stop is the Prize Center page. You can find it under the Prize tab on GSN.com, and it will look like this. You can use the arrow at the right hand side of the page to browse  top items:

Uure

Further down on the page you can see more prizes, recent winners, and posts from the GSN.com Games Twitter feed. There’s also a view all winners link that’s updated daily:

Untre

On the left hand side of the page you will see three tabs to click on:

browse

Win More Oodles  – Takes you to your To-Doodle page on My GSN.

What’s New? – Features what’s most recently been added to the Prize Center.

Browse All Prizes – Shows everything available in the Prize Center. There are many pages, so a feature you will like on the Browse All Prizes page is the drop down menu in the upper right hand corner. Click on the down arrow next to “All” in view to see the selections:

cate

Buy it Now – Use your Oodles to get prizes right away – coupons, Oodlectibles (remember, those go in your collections box under My GSN, they’re not physical prizes), magazine subscriptions, donations, and more.

Sweepstakes  –  A sweepstakes is something you pay an entry fee, and generally you can purchase as many entries with your Oodles as you’d like. For example, the Daily $100 Sweepstakes costs 75 Oodles per entry. Choose the number of entries you want, and click the blue “Enter Sweepstakes.” A verification window will pop open and once you confirm,  the Oodles are removed from your account. If you change your mind you can click on the “back to prize list” at the bottom of the page:

Untitled picture

 

Play To Win – This features any games going on where you can compete for gift cards and/or a share of Oodles or Tokens pot.

Bid For It – You will find the auctions here. Let’s use the Daily 100,000 Tokens Auction as an example of how they work. The entry fee is 100 Oodles. That means you’re paying to enter the auction, and those Oodles are removed from your account. You do not get them back, even if you lose.

Now you can type an amount you want to bid (example 10,000 Oodles), and click on the blue “enter bid” button.

If your bid is the highest, you win this prize and the 10,000 Oodles are deducted from your account.  If you do not win, then the 10,000 oodles are not deducted, and you can try again tomorrow if you like.

Often there is a minimum bid on an auction, so if you type in less, then it won’t accept it. Also, be sure you actually have the Oodles in your account you bid, because if you don’t and you win, then it goes to the next bidder.

If you win any prizes, they’re generally shipped within 4-6 weeks to the address you have listed on your account, so be sure you have the correct address, including apartment numbers, etc. if applicable. You can check that by going to My GSN and clicking on My Account. Some prizes such as coupons and e-gift certificates are emailed to you, and they generally come in 1-2 weeks.

In the drop down view  you will also see By Category which include Cash and Top Prizes, Daily Deals, Balance Boosters, GSN Gear, Oodles Donations, and Oodlectibles. These are just better ways to sort and you’ll have fun exploring them on your own. Check back often, as the Prize Center is constantly adding new prizes!

This concludes our tour. Please take small children by the hand, and collect all valuables. Thank you and have a great weekend!

      • Same here, I am an Australian citizen and it pisses me off cause cannot win any prizes with oozes or else
        Which is not fair cause I used to play for years and have spent hunderds on this site and haven’t won anything which I find it ripping off

        • Hi Kristy, I believe you can win on the Cash Games side, but because of varying legalities, the Oodles program can only be used by USA and Canada.

  1. Why every time I try to play the Wheel Of Fortune for the Amazone gift card I always get the same mesage “We’re sorry, but the Wheel Of Fortune Weekly Win It isn’t available.” but it says is not over for another day

    • I’m sorry, I’m not able to duplicate the issue (it’s loading correctly for me). Please contact Player Services for account assistance. They can investigate this for you. If you’re able to include a screenshot so they can see what it happening to you. To contact them click on GSN Help at the top of the main http://www.gsn.com page. Be sure you’re logged on to your user name so you can see the contact link.

  2. i have already contacted player services, this is just to let players know. deal or no deal is having problems. my second spin just kept spinning. don’t want people to lose their tokens like i did. i do hope they fix this problem.

      • I’m sorry Jacki, while I answer many posts, I don’t always answer all of them, especially if someone is more or less commenting. I read your post as a statement, not a question. You said you already had contacted player services. I apologize if I missed the question in there.

    • I’ve been playing for years and I’ve discovered that bidding on any prize, the chances of getting the bid, for me, has been zero! I’ve bid millions of tokens on one thing, lost them and the bid. Same with oodles, 16,000 on one thing and only lose. I can’t see any reason to do your prize thing, it is a lose, lose thing with little or no chance to win.
      takes a long time to get, but lost in a flash just to bid, with nothing to show for it. I won’t do it anymore, nor contest, I liked it better before you changed everything.

      • I’m sorry curtissorry, Tokens cant be used to bid on prizes. Only Oodles. And if you’re bidding Oodles in the auctions and don’t win, then they’re not removed form your account, only the entry fee is.

        • You can’t buy things with tokens, but you can with oodles. Yet you rarely earn oodles. I thought you were supposed to play games and win oodles. Not just the cash games. Why buy oodles to buy stuff…??? Wouln’t it be easier to just go buy it?

          • Hi lane8085, you can’t buy Oodles, only Tokens. Although some Tokens packages do come with bonus Oodles.

      • Hey curtissorry thats 2 bad………. Try getting a e-mail from G.SN. saying congradulations you won 1 of 10 pair’s of $99. headphones. But as I read the bottom of thier e-mail it said we are sorry you are “Canadian” lol….. would you like your oddies refunded….. I told gsn angel about it and mentioned it to her she said Canadians can enter draws n even Win but ex-cluding Quebec. ok fair enough Im no where Quebec lol Im in Ontario 1 hour North of Toronto,Ontario……. No word back, no oh Im sorry , no Ill look into it no nothing just Any one can play or win excluding Quebec.I play this alot n pogo I personally don’t think I could even win a balloon,but then if I did win a balloon what color blue,red,green……. grrrrrrrrrrr

        • I remember your email Bob. I forwarded it to the Prize Center last August. I agree that’s frustrating, but Canadians can win prizes. Just be sure to read the whole prize description. A few do say USA only. I’m told some vendors we use don’t ship to Canada, which is why I assume your headphones couldn’t be delivered. I do apologize again for your poor experience though.

          • You think it’s bad they can’t ship over the border, how about GSN is quite happy to let the rest of the world play but we don’t get prizes at all in NZ. I keep getting told someone won while I was logged and wahoo I got free tokens and oodles. Waste of time as oodles are no use to me.

          • Hi chick14, different countries have different tax laws which is probably why GSN.com was just set up for Us/Canada players. You can win cash on GSN cash games internationally.

      • The first and only time I ever bid on anything, I WON!!! It was amazing! I won a 48 pack of Gel Pens, a 24 pack of Prisimcolor Colored Pencils (which are my favorite EVER!), and an awesome Adult Coloring Book!!! I just wanted to let you know that I never win anything, but I did on here which means it IS possible, so don’t give up just yet 🙂 GOOD LUCK!!!!! And remember to have fun, that is why we play in the first place, right?

    • you aint the only one losin tokens or oodles!!!
      it charges for the scratch tickets(500 oodles) but does not deliver it!!!
      such a rip off
      if I lost then ok but to not even be able to scratch!!!!

      • Hi Bob, when that happens please contact Player Services. To contact them click on GSN Help at the top of the main http://www.gsn.com page. Be sure you’re logged on to your user name so you can see the contact link.

  3. I have not been able to use most of my casino slot games they dont work & been going back & forth thru email about trying to get it fixed but its not happening & one of the slots that doesn’t work is Deal Or No Deal …… which is the one for the neww oodles promo so can I earn the oodles another way in place of this

  4. Angel,
    Thank You on the refresher course! Navigating all there is to do can get overwhelming at times and trying to find or follow the how two’s can get buried in all the “off topic” questions you are asked.
    I do get and understand the why’s of the random questions that are asked. There’s not always a place to ask a question that might come up and therefore as you know it just gets asked in the newest post.perhaps a place these can be posted? A catch all spot such as.
    ………….again though Thanks for going the extra mile and trying to anticipate the nest question (and answer) that might come along.

    • You’re welcome mindytbl! The odd random question is fine. If we do a post that says something like “Ask questions here” it will end up getting buried by newer posts that come along. I have considered doing a Q&A type Oodletorial, so maybe that will be something I do soon. But we have a very good FAQS people can check out for most questions located here, and Player Services is the right people to contact for any account or games issues.

      • Angel, That’s very true and I do go to both also.
        I must admit I see what issues and if there the same that other players have.

      • I HAVE OVER A MILLION TOKENS AND OODLES BUT I HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO PLAY ANY GAMES IN MONTHS THE PAGES JUST KEEPS RELOADING

        • I’m sorry you’re having difficulties. If you have not already, please contact Player Services for assistance, and let them know what is happening. To contact them click on GSN Help at the top of the main http://www.gsn.com page. Be sure you’re logged on to your user name so you can see the contact link.

    • lol …. I’ve lost well over 30 million token over 1 year because GSN has the game your playing set at the highest amount instead of the lowest amount per spin. If your not careful and look constantly, poof, you lose a million tokens per spin. If I bought 30 million tokens, Id have to sell my house to buy them. Just doesn’t seem fair. It should be set at the LOWEST and let US raise the amount per spin.

        • Thank you, I didn’t know that I could do that. Is it possible for someone to review my Token spin losses a million at a time per spin ? Just about 3 to 4 weeks ago I lost about 10 million tokens. But it’s been a total loss of at least 30 million over the last year. Could gsn look at maybe reversing the games to start at the lowest amount per spin instead of setting it at the highest ? Sometimes I hit the “auto spin” button when on the phone or doing other things. I come back only to find out that it was a million per spin. Once it hit in my favor and I actually won about 8 million : )

          • I don’t think they can go back that far, but they may be able to see 3-4 months ago. You can reach out and ask them, as well as suggest adjusting the game bids. To contact them click on GSN Help at the top of the main http://www.gsn.com page, then look for the green “contact support” button at the top of the help page. I’d recommend logging into your player name before contacting them so there is a record from your account you can access later if need be.

  5. Is there a certain time frame you have to wait after winning sweepstakes to win more prizes? I won the $250 sweepstakes last week and didn’t want to use my oodles if I can’t win again for a certain amount of time. Thanks!

  6. Fantastic job, GSN Angel. I needed this. I thought I might write you to ask for an explanation on the Prize Center. Well done. I do think that some of the BUY IT NOW are actual physical prizes – and some are not. For instance. The Oodlectables are not physical prizes but the, Book of the Week, The Mrs. Fields Cookies, The DVD of the Week and several others are actual Prizes.

    • Hi Susan, yes, the Oodlectables are the only virtual prizes. The rest of the buy it nows are physical prizes or coupons (it states on the prize what it is)

    • Hi Steve, I apologize for the confusion. There’s more to come with this change. I will make a post on Player News when I have all the details to share with you.

  7. Is there a reason the ChaChingo Bingo numbers changed? When I logged in this morning and went to put my numbers in I realized they go to #90 now instead of 80? Ten new numbers have been added. I am a little confused why they would change this, any ideas GSNAngel?

    • Hi sdnels, I apologize for the confusion. There’s more to come with this change. I will make a post on Player News when I have all the details to share with you.

      • I hope that when they make this change, my ChaChingo Bonus will work. It hasn’t worked since the beginning of June and they keep sending me the same e-mail on things to try to fix it. They also keep asking what system I have. It is frustrating to keep getting told to do the same thing over and over when it doesn’t work. I finally just quit contacting them because it’s obvious that they don’t care or don’t know how to fix it.

        • I’m sorry for the difficulties Angel0330. Sometimes it’s hard to know what the fix is for people’s individual systems. I hope they get it figured out for you.

  8. Can you win twice or more on today’s Turbo Tuesday Auction? I won once already this morning. Just wondering if I should bother to try and bid again. I know some prizes have daily limits on how often you can buy/get them. Magazine subscriptions for example are 10 days or so. If you see this after Tuesday, still feel free to answer. I’ll just use it for future reference. Thanks.

  9. ChaChingo Bingo, says my Information is wrong , when I updated it…..and nothing has changed it took it until today…..??
    Also I am from Canada, and the prizes are all for the US, will there ever be prizes for Canadians ??
    thanks !!

  10. Thank you GSN Angel!!!!! You are AWESOME!!!! I get it now :>)

    Also, thank you to GSN for the 300 Oodles for today’s Daily Break!

  11. hey angel I’ve had a lot of oodles bonus video for the treasure chest I’m not getting credited for them I’ve contacted player services already but no response

    • I had the same thing happen to me recently (I think it was last wk or maybe the wk before) for the daily break, when I finished it I was never awarded my 300 oodles, then it was 75 oodles a couple of times that I never received…I didn’t pay attention today to whether or not I received them. I thought about contacting player services but never did….just thought it would fix itself …..but in all reality I should have known that nothing gets fixed by itself….lol…..and also things will never get fixed if no one is aware of the problem. I was a little upset when I wasn’t credited my 300 oodles but wasn’t that upset over the 75, but when it happened a couple of times I was like whaaaaaaaat?

  12. AM I THE ONLY ONE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH CHICHINGO BONUS THE FIRST DAY IT WORKED FINE BUT SINCE THEN I HAVE CONTACTED HELP AT LEAST 5 TIMES AND THEY FIX IT AND THE NEXT HOUR IT DOESN’T WORK WHAT’S UP WITH THIS NEW GAME

    • If the bonus doesn’t come up right away be patient. I find if I roll my ;age up and down a few times it pops up. Good luck.

      Cathy, just a nosy game player reading other peoples issues. I hope this helps.

  13. I have been told I won prizes and confirm my information and never received my prize(s) it will say in 4-6 weeks but in some cases it has been a year and never got anything!

    • Charlene, if you’re missing prizes please contact Player Services so they can investigate for you. There’s no reason to wait a year! To contact them click on GSN Help at the top of the main http://www.gsn.com page. Be sure you’re logged on to your user name so you can see the contact link.

  14. Any idea what happened to the 200 Oodle Match and Win scratch off tickets in the Prize Center? They’ve been missing for two days. Will they be back?

    • Hi mumkitty, I suspect they ran out of stock in the prize center. I’ve sent a notice to them, but they may not show up until Tuesday.

  15. I like to play wheel of fortune for oodles but I think it’s impossible with apple iPad. Is adobe flash the only way to keep your oodles. Can’t keep track with trying to use spin set. Is there another way to win oodles on WOF. Thanks for any help!!

    • Linda, the game son GSN.com are flash based so you need flash to play. If you’ve not already, you may want to check out our mobile site here.

  16. Thanks for all the tips. I am doing my best to win oodles to enter these contests. Any word yet on a Double-Oodle Day? We used to have them on Holidays.

  17. SHOW ME THE MONEY!! Will there ever be a time when residents in Arkansas can play for cash? I tried to make a deposit but it was declined due to certain regulations. Any NEW news on this issue? And thanks, by the way, for the great jobs you guys do.

      • Thanks for the info. Since I can’t play for cash here in Arkansas, maybe you and the crew can let me WIN some of those NICE OTHER PRIZES…? hint hint

        • lol, well.. we don’t pick the winners it’s all automated, but good luck! I am told you should be able to buy Tokens, so you may want to contact Player Services if you can’t

          • Hmmm. I live in Maryland and we can’t do any cash games either, but since I see that the GSN angel replied to you, I thought I could ask a question, too. For many months, I have been unable to purchase any tokens. For over two years, I played games, happily, almost every day. About 5 months ago, I stopped being able to purchase tokens. I cannot open the page because it is ALWAYS blank. Very maddening & frustrating. I have contacted player services at least forty times but they say there is no solution. I’ve even asked if they can let me buy tokes another way, but NO. So unfair. I’m disabled & love to play. I do NOT have another computer to “try on.” Any ideas? I’m tired of hearing that they are “still checking.” Sigh…..

  18. Why do the auctions not let you know when you have been outbid? From looking at past winners and their winning bids, it seems I will never have enough oodles to win anything. It would be helpful to know if I had a chance when I bid.

    • I agree, when I realized I would need a lot to win a t v I have been saving hopefully I will have enough when one comes back up. Hey hang in there, sooner or later they will bless you.

      Cathy, just another game friend.

  19. Yes! i was curious as to when i play chachingo bingo,i pick my set of numbers and i get bonus numbers,when i pick different numbers for each set,
    when i check back,both sets of numbers that were drawn are the same?

    • I think I know what your talking about but I’m pretty sure that it’s not your numbers that show up the same twice….I believe it’s the winning numbers that were picked show up twice sometimes next to your numbers that u picked if there is at least one matching number…..hope this helps you….Laura….just another player trying to help.

  20. Chachingo Bonus is not coming up to be able to put in the second set of numbers this Sunday morning.

    Also, Daily Break is messed up again. It just sits there with a black screen with a small set of circle dots going around.

    Thought you’d like the report because I didn’t see anything written to you about it here yet. Thanks, Carolyn

  21. Hi, this is Carolyn again. The Chachingo Bonus came back up, but it was gone for two hours for me. I am on someone elses computer, but I don’t think that should matter. Thought I should let you know that I got it back. But the Daily Break is still not working. Thank you again. Carolyn

  22. THANK YOU, THANK YOU THANK YOU GSN! My 63rd Birthday is at the end of the month and I just got a terrific present–I won the daily win. 250 smackeroos. Could have knocked me over with a feather–I never win anything. So need it, only June 1st and already broke after bills and extras coming due [vitamins, cell phone card etc. ] Have a big expense coming in September-car registration, smog, etc. This will cover that and then some. Again THANK YOU:D

    ps. feel free to post this on blog.

  23. I am wondering how the bidding thing works after you have placed a bid? I am new to this and apologize if this has been asked multiple times. I had 2070 oodles and i bid on a gift card and used 1500 oodles. how do I know what the highest bid is at the moment. I would think people should know what they are bidding against or am I missing something.

  24. I have lost about 120,000 points on wheel of fortune bingo on facebook getting tired of it can you all do some fine tuning so I can be awarded the points I win/

  25. Hello. Am I missing it or is there not a DVD of the week? This is the one prize that I always looked forward, at least just to see what it was, and do not see it currently. Am I missing it? Has it been removed and never to return (which might then be the same for me)? 🙁

  26. Hi gsnAngel im sorry to bug but I didnt get my tokens or oodles yet for the sweets.could you please help me. thank you

  27. how come when I am playing Safari Sam and it show the three that are to match to get free spins in the free spins it doesn’t give you more free spins? The other games do

  28. I love the new GSN commercial. They need to add an option where we can share that with our friends. I would share it. I love GSN games and I think everyone should play. Some may not feel that way, but I have always believed that someone else’s success has nothing to do with my own.

    Thanks for your time, and I am so sorry for all the heat you had to deal with over the Bingo thing. I read a bunch of the notes sent and some were a bit over the top and for that I am sorry. You work very hard for that.

    Thanks again, Cathy

    • I honestly understand though. I still feel the sting of a Tron arcade game going wrong years ago! I can’t do much to help, but I can (and have) compiled all the posts and sent them on to the game and site engineers. I know they’re working hard to make sure this doesn’t happen again.

  29. I have a hard time collecting oodles. I wish there were more way to receive oodles because I would like to bid on the prizes, but never have enough.

    I mostly use my oodles to try to win the $250. daily. Which I won once, when the GSN first came on.

  30. To me oodles just take time to collect do what you can to get them be patient,it;s taken me about a year to collect 120 k. Take chances use your wonder wheel which I’am guilty of not using my spins up.It just takes time.

  31. I haven’t been able to play the daily games to win more oodles for some time now – did they upgrade the flash player we need to use? It pulls up the dark screen but does not load the game. I am not able to upgrade our flash player, as we have Mac OS X Version 10.5.8 and the Safari system is 5.0.6 – the sites I’ve looked at to try to upgrade our flash player say the lowest version accepted is Mac OS X 10.6 or above.

    Also, I have a request and/or a suggestion – since all of the contests require oodles to enter, could they come up with a specific amount of tokens to be able to enter contests, as well? I see they are constantly having package specials and promotion sales for tokens – if we could also use tokens to enter contests, they would surely have a lot more buyers for larger amounts. For example, the $250 daily contest fee for 1 entry is 75 oodles, so perhaps deduct a fee amount of (200?) tokens for one entry? I would definitely enter a lot more contests with a lot more entries if we could use tokens, too. I definitely like that we can play the basic level of cash games with tokens – perhaps that might be considered, too? To be able to play for cash with a specific number of tokens? Obviously, that fee would have to be higher to make it worthwhile. Thank you very much. I enjoy the site and the games a lot.

    • I’m sorry, I’m not sure much can be done if you’re unable to upgrade flash, but please reach out to Player Services and see if they ave any suggestions! I’ll pass your Tokens request on to the Prize Center too.

  32. Sorry – to clarify, I’m not talking about the daily wheel games – they work fine. I’m talking about the games such as “spin 100 times on any slot game to win 100 oodles”, etc. Thanks again.

    • Hi feathersofhope, you can only get 100 Oodles a day, for a total of 500 Oodles through Tuesday. I edited the copy to make that clearer. I apologize for the confusion.

  33. I won a photo print on clickphoto’s.com but it keeps saying size I picked isn’t included for prize. I picked the smallest size. Am I doing some thing wrong?

  34. Thank you for posting the tutorial. Since it is so hard to build up oodles I would have thought you’d only take the number of oodles required to win. Will have to be very choosy as to what I bid on.

    • Dar, remember you only lose the entry fee in auctions if you do not win. not what you bid. Sweepstakes are more like lottery tickets, so however many entries you purchase, that’s how many Oodles you lose and do not get back if you win.

      • Thanks for responding. Yes, I do realize that the entry fee is lost. It just was confusing to me since it asks for a “bid” as Ebay (where only the amount required is taken), not the number of TICKETS you want. There is a big difference just in the wording. Maybe next time they make any changes to the bid they could change how it to Lottery, that would be more accurate. The way you have it, if there is an item I truly want I would bid all of my oodles. if I won, I would have no reason to continue playing your games as it would take years to build up again. Very sad to run it in this way.

        • I really apologize if I’m explaining it wrong. The only thing you bid on are the auctions. That is like ebay. If you win, the amount you bid is removed from your account (like ebay). Not all of your Oodles.

          Sweepstakes are totally different from the auctions, and there you buy entries (tickets). You can buy anywhere for 1 entry on up. In the prize center, the prizes are labeled sweepstakes or auctions, and you can see the difference.

          • Thanks for responding, I know you have a lot to deal with. You actually did answer it the first time. My only thought was that (and sorry to use Ebay) when you win through them you pay only what was needed to win. IE: if you bid 58999 and the next highest bid was 58000 then Ebay would only take 58001 NOT THE WHOLE 58999. So even though I BID 58999 I would only lose 58001. That’s all I was saying. Anyway, thank you again for your responses. I realize that they won’t be making any changes, just thought I’d throw it out there.

          • Oh I see, thank you for explaining! I’ll pass your thoughts on to the Prize Center team. 🙂

  35. I have been trying to purchase several collectables with my oodles. I confirmed my email address for each and every item. I logged in and out several times, checking my e-mail for confirmation to finalize these purchases. I have patiently waited for over (6) hours!!! NO REPLY OR RESPONSE!!! Please look into this matter. Thank you for your time. HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

  36. i love this site….i keep trying to win but even if i dont i enjoy the games…just wish we could have more games that offer oodles….happy new year 🙂

    • Me too Vonnie…This site is fun regardless if I win or not ….but the most fun of it all is having HOPE! Everyone needs to have Hope in their lives. I would love to play for cash but I cannot afford it because I am disabled…but I did notice that a lot of the cash games are at a low cost and I probably spend more on scratch tickets so I might give it a whirl sometime. Happy New Year to All and have some kind of Hope in 2015…you never know miracles could happen if you have Hope and don’t give up! Laura

    • Hi, there’s different leaderboards for different games. When you go play a game, click on the leadebord below the “play for Oodles” button. You can see daily, weekly, or monthly boards for that game, as well as how many places score Oodles.

  37. As I love that could redeem my OODLES for discounts at stores like amazon, Card, walmart, aveyou, TJ Maxx, macy’s, etc

    Please put new PRIZES … at … BUY IT NOW !!

  38. i dont know how to bid oodles. i bid 18000 on t5he apple notebook. they only took 150 oodles out. i want to add to my bid. howw/ TY TRISHA

  39. Ok, so it says that i have 33 spins saved to spin the wonder wheel and to just push the spin button……WHERE IS THE DARN SPIN BUTTON????? LOL!!!!!
    Sorry for that, I am good, but can you please help me with this?
    Thanks

    • I’m sorry, I’m not sure why that would be unless you’re playing on a device that doesn’t have flash?

  40. I have read most of 2014 comment and questions. I don’t understand why if you can play for cash and can not win cash. Maybe they should put “FOR USA RESIDENTS ONLY AT TOP”., on prizes and etc.
    Why can;t you add to you bid before the game ends. How would you bid more if you get more and want to bid more?
    Thanks

    • Hi Sandi311, GSN Cash Games is open to people from all over the world. There are a few restrictions, but you can find them under the FAQs. The Oodles Prize Center is limited to players in the US and most of Canada, although there are some exclusions as to which prizes can be sent to Canada. Those are noted in the prize descriptions.

    on some video I watch the click to eand button will not turn yellow or green or what ever, and then the success button will not turn color eithe. I watch these video to get oodles otherwise why watch them.

  42. I have been having some unusual trouble lately. I am being kicked off the website by the internet and losing tokens. I have been playing video bingo and I have gone from over 13,000,000 (yes 13 million) tokens down to 900,000 (give or take) due to this problem and the fact that there are more losing spins than winning ones. Why is there only 32 numbers used in a game? once in a while there is a bonus ball but not too often. Games are played for fun. Losing too many games at one time is not fun.

    • I’m sorry you’re having difficulties. If you have not already, please contact Player Services for assistance, and let them know what is happening. To contact them click on GSN Help at the top of the main http://www.gsn.com page.

  43. When I try to buy tokens I keep getting a notice stateing my State will not allow gambling. We have legal gambling on every corner,so I am confused

    • Hi Abijah, you can register on GSN Cash Games, but the Oodles program is only available to the USA and Canada, so that’s the two countries that can register on GSN.com.

    • Hi Cathy, do you mean Rewards Points in cash games? If so you can view the FAQs here, and look under “Rewards Points” or reach out to our Player Services for assistance.

  44. Hi Angel,

    I have read the Oodletorial and have a question. I understand the items one bids on and highest bidder wins. With the sweepstakes items how is that winner determined? Highest bidder or random draw? Is there a list yet of the 31 Flavor winners?

    Thanks!

    • Hi, sweepstakes are drawn randomly. The daily winners are posted here. You can fond the link by going to http://www.gsn.com/prizes/ and then scrolling down to where it says “view all winners” under the recent winners listed. I post a compilation of the previous week’s winners here every week.

    • Hi GMOE, there are no current promo codes, but you can generally find them on this page or in the Oodles newsletter each month.

  45. I’m playing gsn cash games and earned oodles and tokens..but the prizes and everything is for u.s and Canadian residents only..if the game is only for those then whats advantage for others living outside us or canada

    • Hi sid5, while Oodles can only be used in the Oodles Prize Center for US and Canadian citizens, you can use Tokens for any of the casino games. Cash Games also has their own prize center you can utilize. if you have questions about cash games, please reach out to Player Services. To contact them click on GSN Help at the top of the main http://www.gsn.com page. Be sure you’re logged on to your user name so you can see the contact link.

  46. ChaChingo how is it I get e-mails saying I had matching number when I didn’t play for that hour and it and one person said they heard people who have won the jackpot wasn’t even on playing come on if that is true then my sept 8th birthday wish for my 47th birthday to win a jackpot wont ever come true I am so sad so so sad because I cant play every hour and I wanted the chance to win a jackpot I need it in the worst way it gives me hope now I am hopeless

    • Hi Gail, emails get hung up in servers and such all the time, and can come later than they were actually sent. There’s no way anyone can win if they didn’t pick their numbers for the winning hour. The one person who claimed they could is wrong. GSN is very good about verifying winners, and making sure they’re legit. Good luck in the future, you have the same chance as anyone of winning.

  47. I wanted to play the weekly Prize of Wheel of Fortune Prize Spree. I played it a couple of times before, but now it tells me I don’t have enough oodles? It costs 75 oodles to play and I have 33,508. I’m not understanding something here?
    Would you explain this? Thank you

    • There’s a limit of 3 entries per person according to the official rules. Perhaps you’re getting this message: “You don’t have any entries left for this tournament, but the fun doesn’t stop here! Select another Wheel Of Fortune competition, or play to give your Oodles balance a boost”? I see you’ve had 3 entries this past week. The week “ends” Mid ET on Sundays, so you can enter again after that.

    • Hi Stephanie, Tokens are used to play our casino games located here. We run a lot of Oodles promos where people play the casino games to earn Oodles, so Tokens are a good thing to have!

  48. Any idea how many entries needed for the $100. Daily Sweeps?
    … I think GSN should be more transparent on what we need to do to win.
    Anyone won can tell me what they bid?
    Any Help GSN?

    • Hi Nia, one entry is all that’s needed for a possibility to win. The sweepstakes are a random drawing. Kind of like the lottery.

  49. I purchased two “win it now” tickets for oodles lotto tickets ( one for 500 hundred and one for 1250)
    They would not scratch off. It was a rip off

  50. I’m a new member just poking around getting a fell for things. Scrolling through this if “feel” GSN Angel has the patience of a Saint. Sheesh. You have my sympathy.

    • Thanks CheeseLandGal, but I love what I do, and I enjoy helping our players. No patience needed, honestly! It’s what I’m here for. 🙂

  51. I won tokens and rewards points in the Weekly Win It last week, claimed through Redemption Center, never got them. I looked under help to submit a ticket, but there’s no option for my problem. Happened last year too, I think I fixed it here? HELP please lol

    • Hi Stephanie, using the drop down prize center > shipping/delivery would work. It’s for ‘delivery” of your prize. 🙂 That said, you won’t be credited until next week if you won this week. They process them once a week, usually on Wednesdays.

    • Hi Charlotte, books & DVDs were removed from the Prize Center last fall. These prizes did not do well when they were listed. I’ll pass your comment to our management team. Thank you for reaching out!

  52. It is to bad that canadians are unable to order mag subscriptions.There is only a cleaning cloth, umbrella or magnets that we can order. Not very much to choose from. Will the day come when more prizes will be available to canadians? Thank you

    • Hi Helen, unfortunately we’re not able to send the magazines to Canada. Please know Canadians can win any of the cash sweepstakes we have.

    • Hi, I can’t look up your account because your email is not associated with a player name, but they would be deposited to your Tokens. If you feel you did not get them, please reach out to player services and they can see if you were (be sure to include the date and approximate time)

  53. I have purchased three Olleble Oodles. the first was the 4th of July and the other two were the two little girls. I never received the necesssary emails to link to My Account. Will you please check so I can start my Oodles Collection! Than You Tammy8560

  54. I SPEND A LOT ON TOKEN PACKAGES, I WOULD LOVE FOR THERE TO BE MORE OODLES INCLUDED IN PURCHASES. I PREFER MORE OODLES THAN TOKENS. JUST MY OPINION ON THE SITE. CAN’T GET THIS OPINION THROUGH GSN SUPPORT. GSN ANGEL ALWAYS DOES. LOVE YOU ANGEL OODLES TO YOU..

    • I’m sorry m, I’m not sure what you’re asking about when I read the article. Would you mind copying and pasting the part that’s unclear? I can explain further then.

  55. Good morning, I ordered the red magnet for my refrigerator back on the 13th of November. I have not received it yet. How long does it take for delivery when ordering?

  56. I have a cash account and my son does not, He gets promos every day on earning more reward points. But he does not play because GSN limits the amount he can cash in before becoming a cash player. He would lose thousands of rewards points yet he cannot use these for anything. Yet I am a cash player and never get promos for reward points. Isn’t his only favoring non-cash players to become cash players? I appreciate your time, Angel, as this is a very long post. I just think non-cash players should have the same opportunities as cash players.

    • I’m sorry Irene, I don’t have any insight into cash game play. You should reach out to Player Services with your questions regarding it.

  57. Are anyone else having adobe crashing issues its happen about every 10 mins suport said it was my fault ,if you are let me know.

  58. Has the ad’s ruined anyone else’s game play. I dont have much to be able to play anymore. The ads stop the games and ad’s just go around in circle in ChaChingo Bingo. Not much left to play. Anyone else or just me?

  59. Good morning, I started playing wild savanna slots for oodles and I didn’t change the bet at the beginning, so I was betting 2 million tokens per auto spin, I never bet this much. Well I started out with over 40 million tokens and ended with 765,073 when the message came up I didn’t have enough tokens to go farther. I know this was my fault, I have contacted player services to get reimburst tokens with no avail. I’m hoping you can help me. Thank you.

    • I’m sorry Al, player services is who you need to go through for this. If you contacted them on the weekend, they should get back to you sometime this week.

  60. I have played 100,000 tokens 2 days in a row for the kitchenaid sweepstakes in The Night B4 Christmas bingo game, and it has not registered that I have done that, nor entered me into the sweepstakes. What am I doing wrong?

  61. I have over 10 million Tokens and no idea what to do with them. I’ll never use that much playing games. Is there a sweepstakes or something I can spend them on?

    • Hi Linda, Tokens can’t be used in the prize center, but you can utilize them to play promos and earn Oodles, which do work there.
