    • 2jellybeans, this is the update we have right now, but I have forwarded yours (and everyone else’s posts), to the prize center team.

      • In all honesty, i don’t think it does a damn bit of good forwarding posts because i feel that they don’t care. They do what they want and to hell with the players. I mean after all, look at how many posts you got last February after you announced the prize center would be updated and as much as we wondered they dragged it out for eleven whole months! The starting jackpot for Chachingo bingo has been cut to $1000 and the hourly increments only increase by $6, but yet we still have to sit thru 2 ads to get our entries. Then this prize center update that most of us are displeased with. We players spend a lot of time trying to earn oodles to hopefully buy something or win a bid for an actual prize, not throw them down the drain on sweepstakes entries which is the same as playing the lottery. Whomever makes these decisions is a real kill joy! I know GSN will lose a lot of players because it’s not worth the time spent now. Most sites try to make changes better, but not GSN.

    Is anyone else having problems with viewing videos and ads; for the 20,000 Token green banners and the 50 Oodles, you get for watching each video, in the My games and My To-Doodles rooms?

    Thanks, HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone

      • Hi GSN Angel, just where can I find these 20,000 token green banner ads and why is this the first that I’ve heard of them. I’ve never seen them, maybe they’re withheld from my pages? Please help! HAGD Brian

        • Hi mbjkd1960, I’m sorry, I’m not sure what they are either. Perhaps reach out to Player Services by clicking on GSN Help, they should know.

    • I have had several problems and contacted player services. The response was like all ads, they have no control over this situation, My response was then who does take care of these ads that don’t pay and many blank and no credit ads? Then they asked for screenshots and I replied: “how do you get a screenshot of a treasure ads that does not pay you?”
      While on the subject of screenshots, I sent them some of the problems where I was not paid my tokens. . Why do you ask for screenshots, only to give partial correct credit, After back and forth of emails I did get partial credit? I also informed them I know how to restart my my laptop, clear my cookies et, and the problem is on their end. I play everyday but prizes are near impossible to win, I do appreciate the monthly 1000 oodle.bonus but when you need more than 6000 oodles to win anything, it feels useless especially when you have players who have millions of oodles to compete with, I enjoy playing but do get frustrated with these reasons given and having to bicker on how can I win a prize? I do congratulate all winners!!!! thanks for letting me vent:)

  2. Hey Angel. Thanks for finally give us the news about the Prize Center Update. However, we also like to find out if the Prize Center team will put out Daily auction items. I still never see them at all that we wished to appear. Could you provide the answers to us based on concerns to get those up in the Prize Center? Also, will the Prize Center team work this out in putting Daily gift card auctions to our favorite fast food chains and other places here? I still have yet to see if my Cheesecake Factory gift card request has been granted. If they can’t introduce this could you explain why to me and everybody else based on auction item ideas? Thanks

    • Hi sanbull60, thank you for your thoughts. No, based on the prize center announcement posted here, I don’t believe there will be daily auction items. That doesn’t mean they couldn’t turn up again in the future, it just means right now it doesn’t seem likely to me. I will as always, pass along your thoughts about it! (and I sure could go for a slice of Cheesecake Factory cheesecake, it’s been years and your post made me think of that!)

    • There are still chances to earn cash and prizes in Sweepstakes:
      NEW SWEEPS on the way soon:
      $500 Monthly Amazon Sweeps
      500,000 Weekly Token Sweeps

      $50 Weekly Amazon Sweeps: You’ll be able to enter an unlimited number of times!
      Weekly Game Credit Sweeps: 150 Oodle entry fee
      Monthly Prize Center Sweeps: 200 Oodle entry fee

      • PLEASE DON’T have UNLIMITED entries for all the Sweeps! We all deserve EQUAL chances!
        PLEASE reconsider this ONE thing???
        The ONLY FAIR Sweeps was the limit 7 chances in a week per person.
        I see several players with 21,000,000 oodles!
        How in the world can you ever get over 20 million oodles?

  3. Hi. I know I’m not the only one, as there is much chat going on your FB page about the changes to Prizes on the Prize Center. There don’t seem to be much of any good prizes left. There aren’t even many games to choose from anymore. You’ve taken away some of the best games. The list of choices has progressively gotten smaller. I’ve enjoyed playing on this sight since 2004. ( I was on here through POGO in the beginning). You don’t offer the $.25 games any longer, you’ve split the prizes on games with more than 2 players. WHO DO YOU THINK WILL PURCHASE TOKENS ( WHICH BY THE WAY ARE COMPLETELY USELESS) OR OODLES, WHEN THERE IS NO LONGER A GOOD REASON TO HAVE THEM?

    • Hi Billie, thank you for your feedback. You and I have been around about the same amount of time! (2001 here). I think you’re also talking about WorldWinner as well as GSN in your post? I know a lot of games were removed a few years ago from WorldWinner, mostly because of technical reasons as to my understanding, such as browser compatibility issues. But, more games are coming too. In just the last half year, there’s Solitaire TriPeaks, and now Trivial Pursuit, and more are planned. Please know I’ve only been involved with the WW side of things for about half a year or so though, so my knowledge of WorldWinner’s past isn’t as good as my GSN knowledge. I have passed your thoughts about the WW games to the tournaments team, and the rest to the prize center team!

    • Kathie, I can’t speak for the future and what might happen. The Prize Center has changed and evolved in different ways over time.

    • You’re welcome Dave, I agree, and have asked we give more notice if possible in the future. Thank you for playing on GSN!

  4. Why is it always so hard to find the winners from the previous end of month’s big sweepstakes ? For example the last month was (8) $500 Amazon gift cards but cannot find it, seems like they are always late &/or hard to find, why not made a big deal of and posted on front of home page ?

    • John, winners are posted daily here. To find these, go to the Prize Center page, and scroll down to the link that says “view all winners” under recent winners. Otherwise, monthly winners are generally posted here 5-8 days after the sweeps closes.

  5. It seems to me that retiring the bingo sweeps would be a huge mistake. It’s been one of the biggest reasons for playing and I’m sure token sales would greatly decrease as there is no incentive for purchasing boosts or token packages.

  6. Is GSN ever going to bring back Oodles prizes that are actually WORTH something?? I miss the magazine subscriptions and coupons. I’ve been playing on your site for over 7 years now and have never won anything. It seems that GSN is all about “give us your money!!!” all the time — with very very little return for the amount of time we spend collecting Oodles and/or Rewards Points. The majority of your prizes are now worthless pixels. And it’s all but impossible to actually get anything for hundreds of sweepstakes entries. You’ve even ruined the ChaChingo Bingo jackpot.

    • I’m sorry you’re unhappy Jenn. Please know I forward all feedback. Also, please remember playing ChaChingo Bingo is completely free. It’s a chance to win real cash, for free. Good luck btw, hopefully your chance to win will come up. 🙂

    • I blew all my oodles last month and won a $50.00 Amazon card and a $25 Red Robin gift card. I have no oodles left. Glad I did.

  7. You cut the starting jackpot on the hourly bingo game (chacingo), when someone wins, as well a cut in half the hourly increase — now you drop the daily sweeps and the monthly video bingo sweeps — DO YOU EVEN HAVE HALF THE PEOPLE (who were playing) PLAYING ANYMORE????

    • martian56, I’m sorry you’re frustrated, but please remember ChaChingo Bingo is a chance to earn real cash for free. I’m very happy we have it!

      • The only frustration I feel is the “fact” that I have not won nothing but tokens/oodles, in 5 years (hit the jackpot back in 2012), when I play.

    • Hi Brant, please reach out to player services for any account assistance. You can do so by clicking on GSN Help at the top of the page.

  8. I posted a message through my phone.. seems it some how got lost. I am truly sad that we still have NOTHING to bid on except Amazon gift cards. Can some Please let Prize control know, not everyone wants to Amazon.

    • Hi, I’m not seeing another message from you, but maybe it’s been delayed and will show later, but please know I’ve let the Prize Center know that players would be interested in other gift cards as well. I used Walmart as an example. I’ll also be sure to pass this post along too!

  9. HI there. So I’m playing the January Video Bingo Deluxe Archie’s Arctic Adventure for a million. Can you please post the amount of tokens for each post/stop?

    Thanks Bunches,
    Carrie CUlp AKA CCLYNN

  10. I won the $ 100 Daily Sweepstakes back on Thanksgiving and have yet to receive a check. With your having discontinued this and most other viable prizes, I and many others are wondering what’s up with you guys ?

    • Congratulations on your win Dennis! Checks generally take 4-6 weeks to arrive. This is the start of the 6th week after the Thanksgiving holiday. If you don’t get a check by Friday or Saturday, I’d reach out to Player Services next Monday and ask them to look in to it for you.

  11. Dear GSNAngel I hope you can put in the word to please keep the Amazon Sweeps at a limited # of entries.
    It’s the only thing I’ve won in a long time. Thanks:

  12. I am very disappointed-fees are higher for for game credit drawings and sure not much for prizes.I would like to see more gift cards for fast food or restaurants. I dont use amazon at all. Most sites offer gift cards.

  13. Hi, Angel.. Just wanted to add my 2 cents worth. The “prize center” is really a joke now — there is nothing worth accumulating oodles anymore. Surely some of your advertisers could pony up some real prizes in exchange for ad time. All of GSN’s new changes appear to be in GSN’s favor — with the appearance that the powers that be are either greedy or the site is in financial difficulties. I’ve been playing on this site for many years — almost every day, missing only when indisposed or have computer problems. I only play the token games (because I’m too cheap to play for real money). I’m close to being addicted to GSN. During all this time the only tangible thing I’ve “won” is a subscription to Readers Digest a couple of years ago. But, you’ve given me many hours of fun and distraction from the ravages of 83 years. THANK YOU!!

    • Grannybiv, thank you for your feedback as well, and it’s been passed on. I’m happy you’ve had many hour of happy fun here. To be honest, so I have I with you guys! 😀

  14. Angel can you please tell me if they are going to totally eliminate the auction for the $25 GC that we bid on weekly? I did not see that addressed but maybe I missed it. Thanks for your help.
