What are Credits?
Credits are an in-game currency. Just like in real life, you can use credits to buy cool items. But you can also use them to speed up missions so you progress faster in the game. In games where you can buy Credits, they’re totally optional—you can decide how you want to play!
Why do games use Credits?
In the 80s, people played coin-operated games in arcades. All the little payments added up to enough to keep the arcades open and the game developers making new games! In online gaming, these small payments are incorporated into the game, so you can still play without paying. We use the money players put into Credits to improve our games, and keep giving you new ones. All games can be played for free—but if you buy a few Credits, you’re contributing to the upkeep and development of your favorite game.
How do I buy Credits?
If you can buy Credits in a game, there will be a tab at the top corner of your screen that says something like, “Add Gold” or “Add Credits.” Clicking here will take you through the payment process. Just a few clicks more and you’ll have Credits in your account. Easy!
How can I pay?
Different countries have different financial systems and laws—so the way players can pay for Credits differs around the world. When you buy Credits, you will only be shown the payment methods which are available in your country/region. Many of our players pay using credit cards, bank transfers, and via SMS!
Is it safe?
We work with payment providers to protect your financial information using advanced security methods, including encryption. We never share your financial information with anyone outside the payment process. We track all payment activity on our website to detect behavior that could indicate fraud or identity theft.
I need help!
If anything goes wrong during the payment process, we’re here to help. First, go through the same steps that we advise here . If that doesn’t solve your problem, please let us know by filling out the contact form. We’ll do our best to get it sorted out as soon as we can.
My child has made a payment without my permission.
In order to make online payments possible, we have to assume that the player making the payment has permission from the cardholder. That’s because we can’t ask to see their signature or get them to enter a PIN like a store can. We recommend that you always make credit card payments yourself, rather than giving the card to your child. If your child has used your credit card, bank account, or phone account without asking, please let us know by filling in the following contact form with as much information as you can. We’ll do our best to get the problem taken care of as fast as we can. You can find more information on this topic here.
Where can I report abuse?
We take abuse very seriously and monitor posted content (avatars, comments, etc.) actively. Nevertheless, some users may occasionally bypass our security measures. You can help us keep the website a fun and safe place to be by reporting bad behavior. Do so by clicking on ‘Report this item’ under or next to every message and avatar.
When you report an item, we will take appropriate action as soon as possible.
Where can I report other sorts of abuse?
In case you have any concerns of questions regarding our privacy and abuse policies, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Can my child spend money?
In some games it is possible to buy virtual goods for additional features within the game. This is completely voluntary.
All games on this website can be played for free, but sometimes additional features may require a purchase. As parents you can authorize purchases, but players can also make payments using mobile phones, for example. Other payment methods include iDEAL, DineroMail, paysafecard, PayPal, and credit cards.
We advise parents to discuss the possibilities and consequences of spending in-game money with your child and make sure to monitor their online behavior. You could also consider:
• Blocking or limiting the usage of premium phone numbers on your or your child’s phone.
• Blocking or limiting the usage of text message/SMS functionalities on your or your child’s phone.
It’s also important for security that you never give your child access to your PIN or credit card details. If you’d like to give them money to spend online, a safer option could be using a prepaid payment system like paysafecard.
What does Spil Games do to protect my child on this website?
We take abuse very seriously and monitor our websites carefully. Our aim is to create an online environment that kids find fun and parents know is safe.
From time to time, our security measures can be bypassed by users. Every member of our community is empowered to report any behavior or content they see that is inappropriate or abusive.

Why do I have a new username?
We changed our policy to protect our players’ privacy. We hope you like your new username!
Where are my friends?
Some of your friends’ usernames may have been changed. They’re still in your friends list, though!
How does this change my account?
You’ll still have all your old friends, your awards, and other info under your new username. You can log in using either your old or new username – your password is the same. It’s easiest if you start using the new one, as you won’t see your old one on the site anymore.
Why can’t I see my comments or post any comments?
We’ve had a policy change that affects the messaging/commenting functions of our site. We also moderate comments, so if only a few of your comments are gone, they may have broken the rules of our site.
