I have played pogo for years, and recently joined as a paying member. I love the badges, the games, the friendships and all that. But, has anyone - either yourself or someone you know - won anything??? I see all the time when I'm playing that so-and-so won this prize, that amount of cash, or whatever, but I only win tokens... Do real people win? Or are we just playing for the fun? I think I'm just playing for the fun...

Reinydawn, you now know a real winner. I won the jackpot in Fortune Bingo on Jan 6, 2004 and have the JP badge to prove it. I've also won screensavers and wallpaper, but I never download either. Another pogo friend of mine won $5 one time and $10 another time, and yet another won a mug. I've been a member since Aug 2001. The jackpot I won was $135.01 (doubled to $270.02). It took about 8 weeks for them to send me a check, but I did get it. It comes from EA (Electronic Arts), and I almost threw out the envleope. Sure was glad I decided to open it. I've met several of my pogo friends over the years, and hope to meet more of them in the future. Some of us are as close as sisters or mothers/daughters in some cases. I'm still friends with a woman who was in the room I was in when I won. She sent me a pogo message asking if I was a real person. I assured her that I was, and we still say hi to each other now and then. I didn't think real people won either...until I did.

I have also played for years and years and never won anything more then wallpapers & screensavers. I can't even claim to know anyone that actually has won anything else but that. Heck I just want to win something at least to know it can happen. I'd be happy with just some gems, which I have seen is part of their prizes now.

I've been playing for a few years also and the only thing i've ever won is screensavers and wallpaper. Real people do win though. I sent my cousin a guest pass and she won $5. Isn't that a stinker? i play for years and get nothing, she wins money her first month of playing. I play for fun and hope to one day win something, even if its just a pogo mug.

That's cool that you know someone that actually won!!! Hey, I'd be happy with the "hat prize" or one of those too. But at least it's fun!!!
