PCH & Arkadium INC allows faulty programming to infect your computers with Trojan viruses!!!

When I first started gaming oin PCH it was fun. However, after a while I noticed considering their ranking #4 their payout was minimal at best. Same players most days, although they tout huge numbers in gamers on-line (another bogus claim). Their code writers are useless, there is too many glitches in their system-they open your system to Trojan Attacks, I have been under attack from Trojans at least 3 times while on-PCH Games. I have gotten the same scratch off after everyday PCH lotto for many weeks. The daily scratch off are for the most part the same everyday. Most days you do not get the tokens that they tout, if you get any tokens at all. Friends request is broken most days, now it seems for some that you can't even log in. I blame Arkadium INC. as well, as they are the game portal for PCH. PCH & Arkadium are advergamers and are only interested in their ad revenue and not the happy and joyful experience for the gamers. As can be noted in the 5 word reviews on a daily basis, not too many happy players on PCH. Also, if you read their reviews on Facebook and pch site, their popularity as also minimal at best. There are laws in regards to contests, I seriously doubt they are following them to the letter of the law. I happen to know that there has to be a certain payout for scratch offs, I know that they are not following those laws and guidelines.

This is just another rip-off and con to draw you in. How can people play for years and years but not so much as win a 5.00 gift certificate to amazon. I have no doubt that they are unethical and immoral in how they payout for lottos, scratch offs, and token prizes. With the amount of traffic they bring to their site and their unique visitors the payout on small prizes should be very much higher-a great deal higher.

Whay are they allowed to continue in these deceptive preactices? Why are they allowed to continue to allow peoples computers to come under attack due to their lack of programming knowledge? How many peoples computers are dead because of their malfeasance and Trojan attacks? They make millions of dollars a year in ad revenue, why don't they not hire intelligent and creative programmers.

I will be filling a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, The BBB, and the Attorney General in NY.

I am sick of getting ripped off by big business on the Internet and aslo sick of deceptive practices.
