I've only seen one per day, but I've not stopped watching them to wait 4 hours to test it. I've never seen the 4 hour thing? :?:

Love it or hate it, thats the way Capitalism works. If the devs wasn't making money, then there wouldn't be no Yoworld. *shrugs*

I tried to check just now, but they are all out of offers. I was asked to please check back later for more.

This evening my Yoworld Browser would let me watch 1 ad then told me there were no more and to check later or whatever that message says. It kept doing it, would let me see one ad then cut me off for less then 5 minutes then I could watch 1 more. It felt like it was taking me forever to get to my daily yocash so I closed the Yoworld Browser and got on Avast browser, Avast let me go from ad to ad with no problems.

Without yocash BVG would not be able to work and keep this game alive. If they got rid of yocash no more YoWorld unless they put up a monthly fee to play which they won’t do. Zynga never did so neither will BVG. I buy yocash and buy yocash items and give away extras so that people who don’t have yocash or the coins to buy yocash items can own yocash items in game. Yocash has got me saying it too much.

BVG does exactly what millions of other game’s developers do, keep YoWorld FREE

It still irks me that a lot of people play and don’t pay, but it was pointed out that any active player, regardless, is good for the game, and I get that. To complain about something that you’re getting for free, though...


I do understand how you feel but since I've been in the position in 2010 of not knowing if we'd have enough money at the end of the month to pay the bills I feel differently about it. My husband was laid off when the company he worked for laid off a huge amount of people and he was one of them. We went from a comfortable paycheck to barely able to scrape by. I was already playing yoville and fortunately I had a friend from the grand ole opry that was an avid player at that time and she could afford endless yc but could never keep enough coins in the game to buy the coin things. By that time I'd built up enough coins to share and so she'd buy anything I wanted for yc and I'd send her coins. My daughter would gift me with gift cards now and then and I used that YC for homes only. I wouldn't want someone not to play because they couldn't afford YC and also the sellers would not be able to sell if there was no one to buy their items they were selling and that's more than not, those that can't afford yc that are the buyers. This game may be one of the few things they have that they can enjoy to beat the stress of going through a difficult time financially.
To the OP, there are ways to get yc, the red chests occasionally pay out 3 yc, you can get one a day from videos, go in the desktop app each day and over the course of a month you'll build up another 15 yc. Then there is the "slight possibility" of getting the yc from gem events. Past that as others have said the company uses the sales of yc to keep the game going. You can usually get almost anything you want in the AH with coins other than homes. I hope someday they change it so that we can sell and buy those in the AH as well as pets. You can get a lot of coins each day with ads, opening chests from friends visits and the chests sent by friends each day build up a lot if you have a lot of friends and buddies. Those coins will help you to buy what you want other than homes.

So what you're saying is you want stuff basically free. You don't want to pay cash for anything for a game you enjoy, where the company has bills and employees to pay. You are entitled to get what you want without having to fork out cash?

The game wouldn't have made it out of the gate without the introduction of real currency.

As everyone else already stated, free games have limits. Any Online RP game I play for "free" I spent years paying money to upgrade my account, so it would be fun to play free LOL!

However, I do have to agree with the facial features point. There should be some coin option ones. There are coin furniture options. So, a few (maybe not as fancy) coin option eyes, nose and lips would be nice. I know there are a couple coin option hairs (or were, I don't pay too much attention to those when they get vaulted).

I do agree too many items are yc, i never do themes anymore or buy houses, playing is pretty much collecting the free yc in calendar and having a go at GE....

I'm with the ladies above. It wouldn't hurt to release a few more coin items, including facial features. As Skylar said, they wouldn't have to be anything fancy. It'd just be nice to have some options for those who can't afford to pay to play.

Absolutely... I say all the same myself frequently. I believe there's a big difference though, between what you're describing and someone complaining that they aren't getting ENOUGH for free. The OP can earn YoCurrency just like you described, just like everyone else did. I didn't have bubkis at level 24, either, nor did I expect to. You have to play any game for a while to start making progress.
