56 ‘Big Fish Games’ Reviews
Big Fish games are a scam. Should be investigated and removed for false advertising...
I've been playing big fish games for a few years now and I use to enjoy their time management games. It seems they don't put any effort in creating new time management games any longer. The pump out hidden object games like crazy but any time management ones are just the same older games redone with maybe some slight differences in level set up. They haven't come up with any new TM games for a very long time so I think I'm done spending money with these guys.
When you first start playing, you notice the wins come every 5-11 spins. This is how they condition you to expect a small win in these intervals. Around every 40-50 spins there is generally a "Big Win!". Of course this isn't fail-safe, just the m.o.
As you go up in VIP tiers however, these wins become less frequent and the cold spells between jackpots increases to 400-800 spins. It acts as a shakedown of any chips you may have, forcing you to purchase new ones if you want to keep the fun going.
Stay away, stay far away. I'm not even addicted to gambling in Vegas and I became super addicted to this game. The graphics are excellent and the games are seriously well crafted, but the business behind these cute little icons can be catastrophic. I won't even admit here what I spent in the last year, but let's just say I could have a new Lexus in my driveway. Yes, stupid. And all my fault. But this game should be avoided by anyone looking for cheap thrills on the internet. This is by no means a cheap game, and I suspect it's algorithms detect a lot more than they could legally reveal.
I was a big purchaser of the bigfishgames website and bought a lot of games. I downloaded the app and everything was fine until it stopped working out of nowhere. All of a sudden all of my games that I purchased became a trial game and the app doesn't even let me play them anymore. Kept showing me error message. Money down the drain. When I emailed their help desk they replied to me to read the articles which I already did. Before I emailed them I un-installed and re-installed 4 times based on all the article for all the different error code that the app kept telling me. So, when they replied and told me to read the articles I replied back and was like I already did. Final result was they told me I was rude and to have some respect with the issue still in place. Never buying any more games from this site ever again. I'm just going to find some where else.
Do you have money to burn and expect nothing in return? Do you love endless zeros, low hits, slow network and connection issues? If so this is definitely your new favorite app! At BFC they don't discriminate. Regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, VIP status or lack there of BFC will rob you all equally blind. I mean you'll get some hits between 50-100k because they're not total monsters
Take a good word of advice: only buy chips to become a VIP. Never buy any more.
Since Churchill Downs has taken over the app it's become money hungry and greedy.
They don't treat their paying customers well and will make you lose so you buy more.
Enjoy the games but don't get suckered in to buying fake chips for real money!
I'm unsure but I purchased a game that I used to play and then noticed that every month for three months they kept billing me. I don't recall signing up for this, but know that I probably wont appeal in that there commercial power better than mine.
I can only write an honest, negative review about Big Fish games here, it seems, so that's what I'm doing.
When I first signed up to BFG I was able to post whatever reviews I wanted, regardless of whether they were 2, 3, or 5 stars. Now it seems like about half the reviews I give that are under 4 stars are rejected. The reason given for the rejection is always vague, and that's probably because there IS no reason: I don't do spoilers, I don't use profanity, I follow all the other niggly little criteria that they insist upon, and still these reviews get rejected.
At the same time, I've noticed that a lot of the newer games consistently getting 4 and 5 star reviews, even when they look like tosh, and some of them are the same games where my own negative reviews have been rejected. Naturally, one starts to ask, how many of the other negative reviews got binned?
It seems obvious to me then, that Big Fish is fudging the numbers to make games that I wouldn't like, seem like they are good for every player. It's low, it's cheap and it makes everyone unhappy in the end... because if I buy a game that I hate based on fudged reviews, all that happens is that I don't trust the reviews anymore, or the company. And I don't.
I think BFG has a real conflict of interest situation going on with its reviews system tbh, and it needs to be sorted out - how can it be legit for a games developer (which is what BFG is) to screen reviews of its own games? Oughtn't they to put a disclaimer on the website stating that they are biased in favour of their own product? Clearly they are, and not stating that fact straight up is dishonest to say the least.
As with others, I was wrongly charged by them for about 6 months and was able to get a refund, so I can't claim I was scammed, but I am quite wary due to the fact that they never bothered emailing me a confirmation for ANY of those billings. Real live companies always issue bills and receipts. Why didn't BFG?
And as another commenter here said, it's always iffy when your terms and conditions include a promise that you won't take a class action suit out against the company you're signing up with. I also doubt the legality of this... and many other aspects of this dubious little empire.
