FreePlayo anyone?

Recommended Posts

DavePYX

Hi,

 

I posted this query in another forum. There's a new site I came across, which has a Facebook page called FreePlayo Pattaya (www.FreePlayo.com/pattaya). It's a game of chance where you win points and can apparently exchange those points for cash and prizes sponsored by local businesses. Interesting idea. Anyone tried it?

Hello Dave,

 

Freeplayo is a neat little game whereby you can win free Pattaya prizes from various establishments around town. As a matter of fact Tequila Reef has sponsored some prizes on there and it's really easy to play. For those interested the URL is http://www.freeplayo.com it's free to join and you can win some cool stuff.

Tequila Reef's sponsoring? Okay, that's very cool. Your margheritas kick butt! :-) Just want to be sure it's a legit site.

The prizes on there are great, although I think it's going to take me a while to win that Iphone 4s. Some of the promotions for users are good as well with 15% discount on trips from Adventure divers.

Getting closer to that iPhone 4s - Just won 5,000 points, just looked at what I can exchange it for and I can get 2,500 Baht cash, think I'm going to save it for that iPhone though!

Hi DavePYX and everyone,

 

Thanks for your interest in us :-)

 

Our site is online now at http://www.FreePlayo.com/pattaya. We have half a million Baht's worth of cash and prizes sponsored by established businesses around Pattaya and Jomtien, including Tequila Reef Cantina (thanks for the support!) All you need to do is register with us and play for points. It's totally FREE!

 

TheBahtMedia's got the right idea, saving up his points for the big prizes. There are heaps of smaller ones as well, including 180+ movie tickets (120 points each), 200 games of 10-pin bowling (140 points each), drinks vouchers (300-500 points), food vouchers (200-1,000 points (incl Tequila Reef!)), room nights in Pattaya and Koh Chang (550-1,300 points each), etc ...

Hi TheBahtMedia,

 

Congrats on your 5,000 points win! And thanks for your question.

 

We have nearly 1,000 individual rewards in stock right now, ranging from movie tickets to legal services. Total value of rewards in stock as I type this: THB 542,240!

 

EDIT: I should mention the sponsor promotions as well. If you go to our Promotions page (http://freeplayo.com...a/en/promotions), there are great deals to be had.

Hi unclezillion,

 

Yes, we are a new website launched less than two weeks ago. We've got people signed up, playing, and winning points already which is great, but obviously we want lots more! :-) One way people can earn more points is to invite their friends via the website. Every registration you initiate via our Invite function earns you 10 points.

 

EDIT: Right now points pay outs are as follows: 1 correct logo - free play; 2 correct logos - 5 points; 3 correct logos - 50 points; 4 correct logos - 500 points; 5 correct logos - 5000 points! We will probably have jackpot periods from time to time as well, so keep playing!

Hi seans,

 

Thanks for checking in and raising an important issue. Our privacy policy is here in case anyone is interested: http://freeplayo.com/pattaya/en/privacy-policy.

 

In short we are committed to NOT disclosing "personally identifiable information" (i.e. first and last name, email, address, contact details, telephone numbers, and IP address etc) to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so. That's standard for websites.

WHY DO YOU INSIST ON MY MOBILE NUMBER?

WHAT SPAM WILL ONE GET IF THEY GIVE YOU MOBILE NUMBER?

I just looked into this Sean. You're right. The form insists on a mobile number when it shouldn't (note there is no asterisk next to the field which means we intended for this to be an optional field). That's an oversight on our part! Thanks for raising it :-)

STRANGE REPLY?

 

YOUR WEBSITE STATES....

 

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy "personally identifiable information" or "personal information", includes first and last name, email, address, contact details, telephone numbers, bank account, and IP address. FreePlayo may share, distribute, or sell or otherwise make use of any other user registration or survey data that is not personally identifiable.

 

SO MY EMAIL, CONTACT DETAILS AND TELEPHONE NUMBER, BANK ACCOUNT AND IP ARE OK TO SHARE OR SELL.

as my name is not on them?

 

YES ANOTHER REASON TO NOT GIVE YOU MY MANDATORY MOBILE NUMBER AS ONE CANNOT SIGN UP WITH GIVING IT.

The relevant word in the second sentence is "not"; we may share information that is not personally identifiable.

We define personally identifiable information as all of those things you list among other things. Information that is not personally identifiable is aggregate data collected from all users. It's all standard stuff. As for the mandatory phone number, that's an oversight as explained already.

Got another 50 points last night! :-)

 

The privacy policy is standard for a website like this. Play a free game for the chance of getting cash and prizes. It's a no-brainer. I mean, why not!?

Thanks for your support Dave,

 

We do understand and care about privacy concerns. The language of our privacy policy could be simpler, but it does say that we will not share or sell to third parties anything we define as personal information or personally identifiable information. Why would we? Our users/players are vitally important to us.

 

Just to clarify what we mean by aggregate data (or information that is not personally identifiable): It's statistics such as average age of our users, the number of our users who live in Bang Lamung district, the most popular promotion and rewards categories clicked on by our users, etc. None of that identifies individual users, but is essential for us to sell sponsorship to make all the great cash and prize rewards available to you!

 

I hope that further clarifies Sean's concerns. :-)

Just an update on this, FYI: This has been fixed. When you register you are no longer required to enter your mobile number. This is what we had intended.

Questions: I noticed that prizes are limited. For example 500 drink vouchers at Murphy's law has only two left. Will the prizes run out? If so, if rewards redeemed, how long will they be valid for?

 

Thanks.. A great promotion...

Thanks for checking us out.

 

Yes, all the rewards have limited stock, so taking your example, Murphy's has 2 x 500-Baht vouchers and 20 x 300-Baht vouchers. (Murphy's also have accommodation and charity donation rewards in the system.) Each reward has it's own terms & conditions set by the sponsor.

 

It seems that a lot of the people playing and winning points to date are saving up for some of the larger rewards, such as the iPhone and the kiteboard.

 

Cheers!
