Creating an account with Pogo.com

This step comes later when you are ready to start playing. This will take you to a very basic form that you will have to complete to register with Pogo.com.
  • Fill in the Screen Name that you would like to play under. This is basically a username. Think about this a little bit beforehand. You want your username to be one that really reflects who you are as a person
  • Then you should choose the password you would like to use on the Pogo.com website. This password must be 4 to 16 characters long. Remember that it is case sensitive. Remember that the password you choose should be something that is easy for you to remember. At the same time it should also be something that other people will not easily be able to guess. Think about this carefully.
  • Re-enter your password in order to check for spelling mistakes.
  • Indicate whether you are male or female by clicking on the relevant boxes.
  • Give your date of birth. This is needed in order to determine whether or not you are in fact eligible and old enough to play Pogo.com and to be used as a verification tool when you win prizes.
  • Indicate which country you are playing from by using the drop down menu.
  • Enter a valid email address. Your email address is needed so that you will be able to access your account if you ever forget your password. It is also the medium through which you will be informed if you win a prize. Don’t worry! Your email address will not be given to anyone and will only be used by Pogo.com for the purposes specified.
  • If tick the box that says “Contact me about Pogo.com and EA special offers, news and events” this information will also be sent to your email address.
  • You will then have to prove that you are human by completing the security verification section. This simply involves typing in the words that are shown to you on the screen. If you cannot see them you will have the option of generating new word and trying again. This prevents cheaters from making a whole lot of accounts, and it safeguards your own Pogo.com account.
  • Click on the “Accept” button to confirm your account registration. Remember that by doing this you are agreeing to the terms and conditions of the site. It is suggested that you actually read these terms first before agreeing to them.
