Word Hunt: Frequently Asked Questions
What happened to the old HeyBingo and Flash games?The old website and the old HeyBingo Flash games are no longer supported.
Why aren't there chat rooms anymore?There are still a lot of work in progress. Chat will be supported in the next game updates.
How can I get more game currencies?If you sign in via Facebook, you will be given bonus game currencies immediately.
Winning games (especially the jackpot) will also grant rewards.
If you run out of game currencies, you can also watch rewarded video ads.
What are rewarded video ads?Rewarded video ads are short video clips that you can watch, and in return you get extra game currencies.
Low on game currencies (coins / fruits)? Rewarded ads let you recharge your game currencies, so you can play more games and enable the Game Aids! You can watch rewarded ads every 30 minutes.
Why can't I view rewarded ads after some time? It says rewarded ads are limited?Currently, there is a limit to the number of available rewarded ads available for everyone. Players who are low on game currencies will be given priority to watch rewarded ads.
If you have enough game currency, you will not be able to watch rewarded ads temporarily until your game currencies fall below the upper limits.
This is a temporary solution. Hopefully, in the future there will no longer be limits and you can watch rewarded ads as often as you like.
NOTE: The reward limits are separate for each game currency (coin and fruit). If one currency gives you an error when viewing rewarded ads, try the other one!
I don't seem to be getting high scores compared to the other players?Everyone plays the same game board, with the same sets of letters and score multipliers. This means your score is solely dependent on the words and scores you are submitting.
The key to getting a higher score is to concentrate on finding words where you can use the letter tiles with score multipliers. Longer words also have bonus points. Also, try to keep your accuracy rate high because too many wrong guesses will cost you points deductions at the end of the game.
What happens when I get disconnected in the middle of a game?If you come back before the game is over, you will be able to continue playing from where you left off. The game server keeps track of all your submitted words and scores. When resuming a game, the game server probably missed recording your last few submitted words, in that case you just need to input those words again.
If you don't come back in time for the same game, your last recorded total score will be considered your final score. This will be used at the end of the game to determine your final game ranking. You may still win if your score is high enough, even if you weren't able to finish the game properly.
