Why are there are multiple animals in one image?

This is an escalated security challenge that asks users to discern the animal ‘in front’ of the other animals and place it in a standing position.

Why haven't I received the prize I won?

If you’ve recently completed a prize game and that prize hasn’t shown up in your inventory, this is more than likely due to your email and/or account not being validated.

It is a good idea to ensure that your account with the website on which you completed the prize game is validated and considered active.

This can be done in numerous ways but usually, it will be in the form of an email when you signed up or by a few clicks within your account settings.

For example: those using IMVU can head to this link: while logged into their account. If their email has not been verified, they need to click the “Send Verification Email” link. You’ll receive an email and once you follow its instructions, you’ll be verified!

Why can't I play the prize game?

Occasionally, you may be unable to play a prize game. There may be a few reasons for this, with the most likely reasons being listed below.

You’ve reached your daily limit
Some sites may limit you to a certain number of prize game completions within a set amount of time. This total is determined by the website on which you completed the prize game(s).

The website has sold out
Websites can sometimes offer only a limited number of prizes each day/week/month, so you might miss out if you aren’t quick enough. Once they run out, you might have to wait a certain amount of time before being able to play again.

Plugins might be blocking the game
Some plugins (e.g. AdBlock) can sometimes interfere with technology running on a page. By turning off your AdBlocker, you can test to see if it’s causing the error.

Outdated Browser
FunCaptcha is supports numerous browsers and versions but if you’re running a very old version of a browser, you may have trouble. It’s a good to idea to keep your browser up to date.

If you’re still having trouble accessing a prize game, please contact us with your issue and we’ll get back to you right away.
