Service Update: More Java Game Retirements

Java and Flash, two technologies that have powered Pogo games for many years, are being phased out across the internet. Support for Java has already been dropped from most web browsers, and Flash support will be discontinued by 2020. Pogo and EA have no control over this change in web technology.

Because of this, we are retiring the following older Java-based games from Pogo on July 2, 2019. (Revised date)

• Bridge
• Penguin Blocks
• Crazy Cakes
• Super Dominoes
• Backgammon
• Jigsaw Treasure Hunter
• Perfect Pair Solitaire
• WordJong
• Blackjack Carnival
• Showbiz Slots
• Hangman Hiijinks
• Pop Fu
• 6th Street Omaha Poker
• Makeover Madness
• Stellar Sweeper
• Battle Phlinx
• Ali Baba Slots
• Quick Quack

We know some of you will be disappointed. Sadly, these games are currently inaccessible to most players and, given the technological hurdles required to play them, it’s simply not feasible for us to continue supporting them.

If you can still play them, we encourage you to work on finishing up any Challenges or ranks while you can. You will be automatically awarded Badges for any in-progress or purchased Challenges you are unable to complete in time. We’ll also be bringing some older Badges back from the vault to give you one last chance to complete them.

We’re continuing to update our most popular games to HTML5, providing improved graphics, performance and accessibility across devices and browsers. We’ve already released over two dozen new and updated titles, with more in the works. The future of games on Pogo is very bright!
We know it’s no fun to lose a favorite game, so we encourage you to explore the Pogo library. We have multiple games in each category – bingo, card, word, puzzle, etc. – offering similar gameplay.

Thank you for all your support and understanding,

-Your friends at Pogo
