The DOWNSIDE of Uniqlo’s Game App

Please do not expect much about Uniqlo’s Facebook game app. They have launched it last March 22 but apparently with a failed system. The photos below were screen captured from Uniqlo’s Facebook fan page.

It’s not clear for the participants on how to claim in case you won a P500 Gift Coupon. When you have won a minor prize, you should automatically received an email on how to claim it. Unfortunately, not every winner of minor prizes could received it.

And sometimes, the game app won’t load or with some glitches again and again.

Some would be able to received emails about their multiple winnings, but the gift certificates has no unique codes?

Players were also confused on when you should be able to play again.

Sure, the system is not perfect but at least they should respond to ALL the inquiry the soonest. I have also won last March 23 and emailed them and also commented on their fan page, but until today, March 29, I got NO reply.
