Dear Mr. Williams.:
Thank you very much for your reply.I wish you had addressed my question of the unequal footing for your token system. I am still questioning your terms of service that do not allow residents of other countries (and many states) to only exchange tokens for game play rather than cash and prizes as other U.S. citizens are allowed.
There are other companies including some based in the U.S..that allow the exchange of virtual tokens for prizes. In fact, some run solely on that system. (Swagbucks is one example of an International system where players exchange tokens for cash and prizes.) As I said before, I think your game system is fantastic, especially for those in member states with with full playing benefits. Let me know if I can be of assistance in helping to remove the "token" barrier that stands between Canadians and the enjoyment of full playing rights
Unfortunately, a business needs protection as much as the consumers that use that business do, and that is the purpose of a TOS. As already mentioned, hundreds of people have earned prizes at SA and there have been many Canadians that have done the same in our community. What you've asked for, on your blog, is that SA relinquish its rights in providing appropriate cash equivalent products to players that are unable to retrieve a prize, which is not help us nor the player. No benefits have been squandered for any player, in any country, but certain legal restrictions apply to residents of different countries that must be obeyed and our of any business's control.
Swagbucks is not a skill gaming community and not parallel to SA. However, the few skill gaming communities out there that you will find, do not offer prize redemption aside from a few and not at nearly the scope, detail, and opportunity that we provide to Everyone, not just members of the US. Saying that we limit the prizes to only select US residents is just flat out lying.
