Pogo’s June 18th Release – Lots of Stuff!

Pogo’s June 18th release has some exciting changes!

What can you expect?

1. New Flash Version of Monopoly: The World Edition.  We’ve taken one of our most popular games and made it more playable for more people by re-releasing it in Flash (as opposed to Java).

2. New Top Navigation Bar. You’ll see the Top Navigation Bar on Pogo has changed a little bit, making it easier for you go get around.

3. Java Detection Changes. Pogo has changed the way that we’re detecting Java on players’ machines. This means players should see fewer Java messages appearing.

 

Furthermore, Java has an update going out today to address some of the Java security issues.

  • I miss the OLD way to navigate around Pogo, it was much easier to find things, now when a NEW game comes out I can’t find it.. where should I be looking? Also when are more games getting MORE levels? Like Jungle Gin, I want more then 50 levels, and spider Sol. Add more levels please Pogo!!

    • When a new game comes out? I must have missed that. Other than HOGs and games from other sites pogo hasn’t come out with new games in years.
      That and all he flash and java problems may be reasons why there have been far fewer players on Pogo recently.

    • you can make a game part of your favourites, which saves tons of time….as for new games, usually there is an article in the news about it. and also on the alphabetical listing on the front page, it usually has “new” near the name…

    • Why does Pogo keep changing things for the worse for their members. You keep changing the old way to the new way to navigate around pogo. i truly will not renew my membership after eleven years. Enough is enough. I will never buy gems or any games. Pogo is a big joke now and I’m tired of it.

      • yea I agree — you make it hard to contact you — then it takes forever for you to resolve problems — there are other game sites that would be thrilled to get as much money I pay you I bet there wouldn’t be much problems

        • now with your new flash crap I cant even play the monopoly game anymore it will not open and spending 20 mins to go to this and that to report this sucks — leave the games alone — grow up and get along with java — your loosing members –

    • I absolutely hate the change. I wish sometimes that people would leave things alone. I don’t think that I will be joining the club anymore when I subscription runs out over the winter.

  • What’s with the PORN pogo ???? We pay to play ad free and now you are pushing PORN.
    You are really pushing it too far.

    • I hate the ads, ads must go or i do

      • As before I hate the newest look, Java popping into my face each time I play and the darn ads for Club members. You have already lost over 100,000 players now you can make it 100,001 when my membership comes due. You let your idiot staff design such stupid badges and invent new idiot games. and Club POGO has been around since 1999. You are now slowly dyin and it’s your own fault.

    • I totally agree with you, Margie The porn must go, thought this was a family site,and the porn offends me greatly

    • Pogo used to be a lot of fun….not anymore….it is all about ads, porn, and money in pogo and ea”s pockets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Prices just keep going up and social security just keep going down. Wake up pogo and get real before you lose a lot of us!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Please… apply common sense… you really think POGO is putting porn on your computer?

        Try using a good virus checker or spyware removal program. Be sure it is one with a good reputation, not just one that appears suddenly on your screen with a (false) offer to help clean up your computer. (again, use common sense)

        Also, there are no ads from POGO, other than the ones advertising POGO games and promotions, IF you’re a paying member.

        In other words, your accusations are likely aimed at the wrong culprit. Dig a li’l deeper!

        • Thanks Grumpette for summing it up about people on here complaining about Ads, and Porn on POGO!!! I am a paying member for 9 years and will be renewing my 10th year in July. I am VERY happy with POGO and the games offered which are plenty on here, not to mention Mix N Match badges I purchase and Gems for the Albums when they come out every month. I think $39.99 is NOT much to ask for for 1 yr with great games I enjoy which others are complaining about.
          About the Ads, or PORN, I DO NOT get any of that as a paying member at all either. I wholeheartedly agree on your point with people needing to get a good Virus Scan and Spyware program. I have Windows Defender which works VERY well!!! They need to do the same and stop complaining and making accusations at the wrong people. Thanks for the input :)

        • right on Grumpette been a member for 4 years have not seen ads of porn or I would not be on this site

        • Thank you for calling these people out.

          Just want to add…I’ve only been with pogo a little over a year as a paying member, and I have NEVER had to deal with ads or “porn” because I have proper security and pop-up blocker software installed on my computer and have never been subject to a hack. If you have ads and porn, it’s sure NOT Pogo’s fault…time to hire a geek to come clean up YOUR mess!!

        • I don’t see “porn” either…dang it :)

        • Thanks Grumpette – you took the words right out of my mouth. I’ve been a member for a very long time and the only time I had porn on my computer was when I downloaded one of the “free” virus software programs. It sure cured things – not! I decided to shell out the money for a good program and no more problems. People if you’re seeing porn pop-ups go to Housecall and run a thorough scan of your computer, get a decent security package and quit blaming Pogo. They are trying to fix it for everyone. I happen to think this newest face-lift is the best yet. It’s clean, easy to read and items are in a logical place. I like it!

    • Maybe you don’t have a good virus protection software. I have Never seen and porn in Pogo. Suggest you make sure your virus software is set to sweep daily, or make sure you are running it at least once a day.

  • I THINK THE NEW POGO, IT A BIT EASIER JUST DON’T CHANGE AGAIN, .bUT I DO HAVE A PROBLEM WITH HAVING TO PAY TO PLAY HIDDEN OBJECT GAME, I AM SENIOR CITIZEN AS SOME OR MOST ON A FIX INCOME ONCE I PAY MY BILLS THERE IS NOTHING LEFT FOR GEMS,M I THINK YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO BUY GEMS WITH TOKENS , I STILL LOVE POGO

    • i agree with maxine. you should be able to buy gems with tokens. when you have as many as some of us do, we will never be able to spend them all. i still love pogo too. with almost no social life outside my home, pogo and the friends i have made here is bout as close to family as i can get

    • I agree Maxine. I know I can’t afford to buy gems in order to buy hidden object game (which I love). I do try to get gems thru Peanut Labs, but thats a joke now. It would be great if Pogo would let us purchase gems with tokens so we would be able to play more of the games. Especially since we do pay yearly membership fees to be a Club Pogo member. Maybe if enough of us request it they will listen HA HA

      • I agree and what would make it even better is winning GEMS in the jackpot spins. Aside from using tokens for the minis or slot games, they should expand the thought of token spending.

    • MAXINE, THE HIDDEN OBJECT GAMES HAVE QUITE A FEW FREE EPISODES. MAYBE TRY TO SCROLL DOWN ON THE PAGE TO FIND THEM. YOU ALSO GET FREE GEMS WHEN YOU RENEW YOUR SUBSCRIPTION. I TOO AM ON FIXED LOW INCOME, BUT I HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM. IF YOU STILL HAVE PROBLEMS I SUGGEST YOU GO TO HELP MENU AND CONTACT EA. HOPE THIS HELPS. TAKE CARE.

      • Yes Anita but once you played them your hooked and want more only yep you guessed it you gotta pay! Humph!

      • Who gets free gems for renewing? I just renewed for the second time and I didn’t get any gems either time. However, I did try to buy a game with gems. Pogo took gems but I still haven’t gotten the game after about two months.

  • I’V HAD A PROBLEM FOR OVER A YEAR!!!! YOU YES YOU MADE A MISTAKE SAYING I OWED DUES WHWN I DIDN’T I CALLED THE MAN SAID DON’T PAY IT YOU OWE SEPTS DUES. YOU SLAP A CAN’T BUY GEMS ON MINE. HAVE YOU EVER BEEN WRONG?? YOUR NOT GOD I HOPE YOU REMEMBER THAT ALTHOUGH I’M SURE SOME ON THERE THINKS YOU ARE. DON’T SAY GO TO HELP LINE I SIGN IN THEY WON’T TALK TO ME. TALK TO MY FRIENDS, I HAVE A LOTS I’M NOT PROBLY ONE OF THE HONEST ONES ON HERE. I HOPE YOU UNLOCK MY ACCOUNT OH I PD THIS YEARS ACC. IN MAY YOU TOOK IT OUT WITH A CREDIT CARD YOU SAY I DON’T HAVE ON FILE.. 2 TIMES LAST YEARS TO…. YOU WON’T EVEN TALK TO ME TO CLEAN THIS MESS UP’THIS IS MY INTERTAINMENT. I HAVE HAD SEVERAL OPERATIONS 2 MORE MONTH DUE FOR THEM TO REOPEN MY BACK FIX THE STIMULATER….. PLEASE, YES PLEASE HELP ME OH HAVE 2 ACC ONE FOR GEMS U ASK WHY I DON’T DROP FIRST ACC I HAVE ALMOST 900 BADGES. TRANSFER THEM I’LL GET A NEW NAME

    • contact customer service. the people that can fix this problem arent going to see it here

    • ALICE, HAVE YOU TRIED GOING TO POGO HELP, AND FINDING THE LINK TO CHAT WITH THEM?

  • put every ones name up like you made me do.

  • I love the new Format! It’s easy to use and fairly simple.

  • Oh joy, more from java. I am only coming in to play on Wednesdays now. It’s just to much of a headache here. Sorry pogo .

  • Why don’t you have a customer service that is actually customer service? We can get nothing resolved the way you have it set up now. Really sucks. I would also like to know why you put more than one grid in a game room — it is no longer a competition or a game. I don’t know anyone who likes that!!!

  • Ive been a member for years and now they’ve done away with Pogo UK with UK word games. Still paying the same, and still cant take part in US competitions. Extremely unfair. Give some money back!

  • Being alot of us have java issues…why you not set all games in flash….it not fair to paying members who cannot play games that r set in java

    • I don’t like the games in flash!! I prefer the games in java!!
      Yes we have troubles in java, but I have more troubles with the flash!!!
      Every game they put in flash, its not long and I quit playing it, if I wanted to play games in flash there are many other game sites which uses flash for all games and I could play them for free, but I hate flash, that’s why I came to play on pogo to start with – is to get away from flash games!!!
      Please do not make all games into flash!!!
      Sincerely
      Kay.

      • I agree! I HATE those flash games…they are the ones that always freeze up, don’t load….it’s always something with them! Tho JAVA kind of stinks too half the time…all those messages…and now today, I get a JAVA update pop-up…they want me to take the latest update? HAH! Every time I’ve updated the JAVA as soon as it came out, there were nothing but problems for weeks afterward! I think I’ll wait on the update…like a several weeks until the bugs are fixed….and we all KNOW there will be bugs by tomorrow!
        Good luck & good gaming!

  • yes I would like to be able to buy gems with our tokens. Maybe you could set a amount that each person could get per month. Been with pogo for a long time, and enjoy the games, not so much the embedded games.

  • I too would like gems taken from tokens. I love “found” so much that I am having trouble over the bills. I am up to 88 levels. PLEASE FIX THIS FOR OUR SENIOR

  • I understand why I have to pay with Gems for the Hidden Object Games.Pogo needs to make money.BUT it’s getting a bit much now. There are 6 different HO Games now and Pogo keeps churning them out ,even the weekly badges are being overtaken by them.Every other week the badge is a Hidden Objects Game.I like them but do not want to pay that much to keep up with all of them.It seems now that Pogo has found a cash cow and i am being turned of by that.ALSO the badges do not belong in the Game Awards Badge Album.An Award is something you earn for free.there should be a separate Album just for the Hidden Object Games so they can be all together in one album instead of cluttering up the Game Awards Album

    • What’s with all of these hidden object games? A new one almost every day. We pay enough per year without having to buy them. That kinda makes your advertising of “free games” a false impression. And Flash is very bad about crashing.

      • And whats even worse than having to buy every hidden object game..is when you do buy them you don’t get credit for it. I just bought 2 new Clue episodes at 20 gems each and its still showing that i dont own them!! Who do you even contact to complain??

    • Being a senior citizen with vision problems I am sick of hidden object games. When they are timed ones I can not do them at all. Thank you so much for your compassion toward handicapped people, it is very unfair that you treat us this way.

    • I do agree that POGO should make a seperate allbum for hidden Object games as they are not game awarded; as an award is something most pepole would agree is earnded not bought for POGO Gems. I think YOU should write a letter to the editor to see what response POGO will tell him he can print back; That way we will know where it is they stand on the matter.

  • I don’t like the games in flash!! I prefer the games in java!!
    Yes we have troubles in java, but I have more troubles with the flash!!!
    Every game they put in flash, its not long and I quit playing it, if I wanted to play games in flash there are many other game sites which uses flash for all games and I could play them for free, but I hate flash, that’s why I came to play on pogo to start with – is to get away from flash games!!!
    Please do not make all games into flash!!!
    Sincerely

    • I hate the new Monopoly in flash!! At first I couldn’t even get into a game, then when I finally did it had issues and the font was so small you could hardly read it!! Why fix something that was working just fine?

    • I have played Monopoly almost every day until now. When I finally got in, it was so slow and jerky that I just quit. Have tried to play again and can’t even get it to load.
      What are we to do????

  • not going to renew membership…since we cannot play all games….thewy no fix java problems for us no renewal

  • Java is not downloading the latest version nor is it telling me if I have the latest version. Java is Pogo’s worst enemy.

  • Just downloaded the latest Java update and now for some reason it will not work on Internet Explorer. Chrome is ok. Java is more trouble than it is worth.

  • still unable to play monopoly world addition. since they went to flash I cannot play it. the game loads but wont let me play.go back to java this is ridiculous

  • What the heck is flash???

  • I’m tired of all the changes Pogo makes! Porn ads ,etc too many changes too often too soon! I’m looking for another game site. Anyone know of a good game site??? My money won’t be invested on Pogo/EA anymore. I Izzzz done here. As much as I love playing here, I also know when it’s time to make a change. After all, It’s all about the almighty dollar with this company and not much on the players concerns.*sniff sniff* bye Pogo, Won’t be renewing. (Not that it matters to you) It’s been fun but I’ve got to run.

  • However Pogo changed the way it detects Java is not working for me. I was just fine before you made the change – now its going on three (3) weeks and I cannot play 95% of the games, get bonus tokens, play the daily games and I’m buying more and more gems just to play the Hidden Object games because some of them are all I can play. I spend a lot of money with Pogo.com and all I’m asking for is to be able to access the site the way I used to before you made the change with Java. Pogo is not detecting my Java (which is the newest version; it is enabled; and even a System Administrator was trying to help me with the problem and I still can’t play. You need to address this problem or go back to the way it was. Please help!!!

  • dont like changes no uk site and we cant win anything but pay more than usa site

  • The newest look Main Page is awlful; it reminds me of the non-paying page. All of the games are set up just like non payers front page. Go back to the drawing board guys. I liked the home button from previous and now there is none.
    So far the only page I did careful for was Jungle Gin Background that is an improvement.

  • I can’t get some of my games to start up

  • I don’t like the way you have the ads for other games on the top of the page. I can’t play some of the games because i can’t get the whole page. If you could slide the sides up it would help. If i can’t play all the games I am not going to renew my games.

  • Quit changing the way to navigate around pogo. There was nothing wrong then you changed it and messed it all up again. Are you kidding me or what? pogo is nothing but a big joke. You just want money and not members. I’m sick of pogo. I wont renew or buy anything pogo has to offer. Did pogo change owners? What is the problem? I’m done. I wont renew.

  • Well Pogo you have really messed up now. I cant get anything to work. Gin…my favorite game….screwed up…really. constantly waiting for the robot. Cards wont turn over, waiting waiting then…booted. very frustrating. I bet you don’t have any problems getting money from you credit card. bet there isn’t any waiting there. I cant even get into first class solitaire. I even have to wait for home page to load. The last time you made changes there were lots of problems but now…the problems are even worse. and Yes…I have updated java…didn’t make any difference.

  • JAVA IS SCREWING EVERYTHING UP! I DO NOT KNOW IF IT IS SOMETHING YOU CHANGED ON THE HOME PAGE OR WHAT, BUT I CANNOT PLAY HARDLY ANY OF GAMES ANYMORE…………..SO FRUSTRATING!!! IT DOES NOT MATTER WEATHER I AM PLAYING ON WINDOWS 7 OR 8 OR GOOGLE!

  • A lot of my games will not play anymore. down loaded java today, still can’t play half of my games.

  • POGO GET IT ALL FIXED OR PEOPLE WILL LEAVE KNOW ALL MY FELLOW CHATTERS HAVE GONE TO ANOTHER SITE READY TO JOIN THEM JUST GIVE US BACK OUR ORIGINAL POGO WHERE IT ALL WORKS AND IS EASY TO PLAY CAME IN MADE TO MANY CHANGES SOME PEOPLE DONT LIKE THAT MUCH CHANGE

  • I still fail to see what was wrong with the old home page. It makes more sense to have a page that reads from left to right, have a soothing background color and not have games that are not what I wish to play displayed across an important portion of the screen. I found the old page friendly and inviting. I still struggle with this one. Now the little “home” is gone.

  • I have been with Pogo for six years now.. I live in UK, and now feel like a second class citizen on the USA SITE.. the UK site having been closed down.
    I love the daily trivia.. but unfortunately loads of the questions are USA based.
    On the last triple games.. one game refused to let us play.. because it would not accept UK players.
    Now the latest insult.. seems to be that only USA members get to win prizes… Because I am sure that with the cost of posting any prizes to the UK, we are not qualifying for them..

    I love playing on Pogo… but it would be nice if you would make the playing field a little more level…

  • I joined pogo july 2007 and I have never seen porn or ads and I am a paying club pogo member .. those who doesnt like what pogo does can delelte their pogo either way this is stupid for others complaining over something that is not true …. and yes we need more levels for the games we play :)

  • I have a complaint about World Class Solitaire. If I can’t complete a game, I can no
    longer go to “new game” to continue playing. The playing field has been made smaller or something because “new game” does not show up on my screen. I now have to go out of the game completely and return in order to play another game.

  • NEW GAMES ??? I havent seen a new game in a year .. ohhh wait new games ( hidden – find ) Nothing for us that can’t afford to pay to play one of those hidden games .. Come on pogo we all are not made out of money times are tough .. Give us more ranks in some of the older games.
    ormake a new game , ever think of the UNO game ?? Yepp sounds good RIGHT!!!!???

  • YES: I HAVE BEEN READING SOME OF THE JAVA COMMENTS AND IT IS SO TRUE!!!! BUNCH OF BOLOGNA. I COULD NOT PLAY AND GAMES UNTIL IT SAID THAT I WOULD HAVE TO PAY TO DOWNLOAD A NEW JAVA. I THEN CALLED MY CONTRACTING WHO I HAVE MY INTERNET WITH AND THEY GAME AND FIX IT SO I COULD PLAY ON POGO AGAIN. WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH OUR ECONOMY. IT SEEMS LIKE THEY TO WANT MONEY FROM SOME SOURCE OR OTHER. THANK YOU JESUS THAT I HAVE SOME GOOD INTERNET PEOPLE WHO HELP ME OUT. I WISH ALL OF YOU THE BEST IN FINDING SOMEONE WHO CARES LIKE I DO!!!!! THANKS-YOU POGO

  • FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ooops Messages/JAVA problem all the time.
    I have to go back and forth between INTERNET EXPLORER and FIREFOX to determine which games will load with which! I do not play as often since having WINDOWS 8.
