zPoints and RewardVille - Overview

Share
RewardVille is a new rewards program which lets players earn rewards for playing Zynga games! Each time you play a participating Zynga game, you'll earn Zynga Points (zPoints) and increase your Zynga Level (zLevel). At every zLevel, you'll earn Zynga Coins (zCoins) to use on free, exclusive in-game items in RewardVille!
Currently, you can earn zPoints by playing the following Zynga games:
  • FarmVille
  • FrontierVille
  • Mafia Wars
  • Treasure Isle
  • Zynga Poker
We'll be activating zPoints on other games soon!
To use the zCoins you've earned, you'll need to create a RewardVille account using either Facebook Connect or your Zynga account. If you participated in the Zynga Lottery (zLotto), you may use the same login/password for RewardVille. Once you've created your RewardVille account, you'll be able to use your zCoins to get free, exclusive in-game items for almost every Zynga game!

RewardVille registration

In order to redeem your zCoins in RewardVille, you'll first need to create a RewardVille account. You'll be prompted to create a RewardVille account on the introduction dialog when zPoints are activated on your Facebook account.
You can use either Facebook Connect or your existing Zynga account to create your RewardVille account. Clicking "allow" on the Facebook permissions dialog will link your Facebook account to your RewardVille account. If you participated in the Zynga Lottery (zLotto) you can use your zLotto login/password for RewardVille.

Why don't I have zPoints & RewardVille yet?

Zynga is in the process of testing RewardVille, a new rewards program which lets players earn rewards for playing Zynga games! Each time you play a participating Zynga game, you'll earn Zynga Points (zPoints) and increase your Zynga Level (zLevel). At every zLevel, you'll earn Zynga Coins (zCoins) to use on free, exclusive in-game items in RewardVille!

Like most new features, RewardVille is being rolled out to players gradually to make sure everything's in working order. If you don't yet see the new zPoints bar above your game screen, please be patient! RewardVille will be rolled out to all players soon.

 zPoints - Daily goals

When you earn experience points (XP) in-game, you'll also earn Zynga Points (ZP). The amount of ZP you earn for in-game actions will vary by game (and by action).
Please note that there is a daily goal of 80 ZP earned per game, with a limit of 300 ZP across all games. These goals are intended to discourage cheating and keep the zPoints program fair for everyone. We appreciate your understanding with regard to this policy.
