EA has poor customer support.

If and when you have an issue with Pogo (EA), don't bother reporting or emailing this company. The company states that it will respond within 72 hours and that's not going to happen. Unfortunately, I will be looking for alternate sites. In addition, this site requires parental monitoring since most players are adults using suggestive, inappropriate and sometimes rude comments.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (17 ):
Kids say (6 ):

While many of the free games are engaging, fun, and educational, others are pure gambling -- with thousands of dollars in prize money to lure people (those over 18) into playing to win, win, win. All are filled to the brim with ads from seemingly every big-name company in America.

Overall,'s games appear harmless -- and even enlightening -- yet for younger game enthusiasts, many of them mirror real-life gambling too closely. As a result, some teens may be playing with an addictive fire that they don't yet know when or how to put out.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
