Going bankrupt? I hope not! 2/5
They don’t have certain gift cards on a consistent basis and it makes me wonder if they are having financial problems. If they are having money problems, then they should just reduce the number of different gift cards and just offer Amazon gift cards since just about everyone can use those.
It is a worthwhile game and I know the game will get even better... I just hope they make it!
Update — May 21 — yes, Firefan did add more $5 dollar gift cards but they were sneaky and made it much more difficult to get these gift cards. Firefan used to give 50 tickets for 50 pregame picks and also 100 tickets for 100 pregame picks. Now, they do not. Also, there was one time I wanted to make pregame picks the morning right before the NBA games that day and the pregame picks were not available. Also, too many changes in a short amount of time... it just looks like Firefan does not know what they are doing. Me and my friends are done with Firefan.
Was great but now needs work 2/5
Developers asked to update my review so here goes. A lot more options to win and receive tokens and tickets. In theory that sounds great only issue is a vast majority you either have to buy something or give your credit card number to a random company. Both of which are a no go for me. I’m not spending money at an online dog store so I can receive 100 tickets. There has to be a way to turn your points in to tickets. Aside from the daily, weekly and monthly points leaders, point for picks are useless. People have thousands and thousands of points and it means nothing at the end of the day. Make a way to cash those in to tickets or do away with one or the other. Give tickets or half tickets away for correct answers. Also need to add NHL, the playoff picks are a good start but having all those games to pick from would be a lot better than European soccer.

Great idea, and very addictive. However, I’ve been playing the app since it came out in late 2016, and like a lot of new apps, FireFan has had some growing pains. I’m still playing...I like the game a lot. I’ve enjoyed hours on end of playing free. I’ve cashed in several $20 Amazon gift cards, and won some great stuff too.
Token fraud 1/5
By Ace Booger
Half of the promotional apps that are now necessary to get tokens don’t pay off in the end. For example, the Vikings: War of Clans app says that if you build your Palace to level 10, it pays 58 tokens and 100 tickets. Took me about 2 weeks to do exactly that, and no reward in the end.
Same with Solitaire, Castle Clash, and I’m sure many others.
Can you fix this or compensate us for wasting our time? I still don’t see why all the changes were necessary, this app used to fun and focused on actual sports.
Poor functioning 1/5
Repeatedly having issues with videos loading for tokens. Fails to load far more then it does actually load. Also always have issues while playing games of notifications messing up or questions not loading properly. Fixes your glitches already.
AWESOME APP !!! 5/5
By Firefan Freak
I have been playing the app for over a year now , I’m very competitive and love the challenge of competing against people from all over the world ! You have the opportunity to get free tokens to play or you can purchase them which I have done . I will be playing this app for a long time to come 😁
Sad day! 3/5
I found the app last year but really started playing a few months ago. I was ok with the 1 token a hour thing. Now you have take Survey and play other games apps. Or sign up for other offers. I have taken 2 surveys one was about 15 min only for them to say I have to pick a offer and buy something once I said no it said I did not qualify for the survey. I never got my tokens for either survey. The app was great I loved the chat. But I just don’t know now. Looks like I have enough tokens for 7 games of fun left.
The app is great! 5/5
By fire fan is great
I have been playing this app for a decent bit, have experienced little to no problems. But hockey should be an available sport to play on the app.
Won't give me what promised 1/5
Unable to get my free hourly token for 3 hours.
2nd day unable to get free hourly tokens.
After the update giving more opportunities to earn tickets, I’m unable to earn tickets from 0915 hrs till 1845 hrs, most of my waking hours, so they’re advertising something they can’t deliver. What else that they say we can get that they won’t deliver on?
Now the link won’t work at all! It doesn’t show “Ad Failed to Load”.
I’m about ready to delete the app and focus on other things.
This app is brutal. Now I got charged for buying tokens I never wanted and of course no where on the app can you contact anyone to get a refund! Terrible service and they obviously don’t want anyone contacting them. Now you have to sign up for crazy apps to get free tokens or you have to buy them. I will run my current tokens to zero and then delete the app!!!!
Won’t work on iPad 1/5
Horrible game. The game won’t work on my iPad. When I open the app all it does is think.
The New Age of FIREFAN! 5/5
There are no perfect apps, but the improvements and additions that FireFan is making are INCREDIBLE! Whether you are a true gamer or simply use the app to track your favorite sports teams, you should add it to your library. Also, the REWARDS you can earn by simply playing games are Awesome! Our family and friends locked in on the Super Bowl, March Madness, the World Series, and more. Don’t get me started on how much fun we have with predicting College Football results on this game! FireFan has been a great addition to our gaming tradition!
Still needs work 2/5
A great idea and concept and ya huge potential but this app still can’t run without glitches in about every game. No matter NFL playoffs, March Madness or NBA there are always setbacks. As a player and investor it’s bothersome that the app doesn’t work more smoothly and that there doesn’t seem to be an evident effort with tech gurus to fix the problems that have been inherent since its launch.
Very disappointed with this app! 1/5
It’s really a waste of time and it’s not fun.
The 5 Stars are Affiliates 1/5
Not much else to say.
Can I give it 0 stars? 1/5
My whole family has tried it. Ran into lots of glitches. Ended up getting rid of the app quickly! It isn't worth the space it takes up on your phone!
Recanting My Original Opinion, unfortunately 1/5
The concept is brilliant and initially had all the major “players” in place for this app to work and be successful. However, after over a year of inaccurate scored points for players, changes in rules during mid promotions, the countless technical errors that occur, the promised prizes legitimately won by players in games that they still have yet to receive, suggestions given to upper management which were encouraged for us to give and ignored on how to fix those issues. I have come to realize that things will not change for the better. They were not properly prepared from the launch date and could never patch the holes fast enough. FireFan is a tiny flame that’s about to blow out. Very disappointed.
Great idea, terrible support and very glitchy 1/5
Nothing ever works right on the biggest games and there is no compensation when the app has glitches. Every time I play and have a lead, the app stops working. I have tried restarting and it still doesn’t work. If you invested before the app launch, there seems to be some advantage and you make money off of everyone else. Unfortunately for the avid sports fan this app is a major letdown. Needs better tech support and some type of compensation when the app screws up. This happens more often than it should and they continue to increase the tokens required to play the game. I’m ready to delete this game and I’m a huge sports fan. The only advantage in this game goes to its investors, who are allowed to play with pretty much unlimited tokens and no cost. Poor customer service and no tech support = app deleting.
Great Concept!! 5/5
By 12thManColts Fan
First, don't believe all the scorned negative reviews, try the app out and experience it for yourself. I'm going to tell you the truth. The app does go down from time to time but that’s expected with all the updating being done. There are tons of gift cards and rewards being offered and I won $1000 doing there perfect pregame pick aspect. It is a great game and you do find yourself enjoying it when you can play with large groups of fans of your team just like you. The game has evolved into an achievement based game which makes it nice to play and rank up and unlock badges to brag about. It’s a great social experience, experienced with passionate fans like myself. The Prizes will only get better, in game advertising will allow you to acquire tokens for free. World ranking will come. Maybe the aspect that will make this even better is the ability to socially connect with sports fans from all over the world. There aren't many apps out there that give you anything other than accomplishment. What do you get for playing Candy Crush, Clash of Clans, Pokémon Go, Ingress???? Nothing, but people pay money to play them so all these people that write negatives are just scorned people that thought they were in fact going to get rich over night and they didn't, so they want to post negative Reviews!! If you are a fan of sports, watch sports on tv, go to a bar and watch a game once in awhile, are a fan of team, then I can't see how you wouldn't like this app. Give it a try Try it out, make your own judgements you will like it.
Making Sports Interactive 5/5
Very fun game, easy to chat, and follow along with your favorite team or just the game you happen to be watching at the time. You and your family will love it
Kind of crappy 2/5
By Sr Franks1998
I got robbed on points from the saints Redskins games I picked the saints they won no points given.
I don’t usually watch sports but I love this App!!! 5/5
By Mad Dog 13
I love sports...but I grew up playing them, not watching them, so I have never been the guy who knows all the sports stats, but now I am able to keep up with my favorite sports and teams bc of the notifications I get...oh and I get to win prizes by just keeping up with my teams...this is a win-win in my book!😀👍🔥
Great app 5/5
Great place to play all the sports and make live picks. It's nice to be able to chat with other players while we are playing a game. The app is easy to navigate and use.
Fire Fan 5/5
A great sports app where you can create leagues and join in , or play along live with your favorite teams and engage in the fun and excitement of earning rewards and bragging right achievements. A great way to follow your favorite teams and play along free😝😝🔥😝👍
Love the game, LOVE the rewards! 5/5
This game is a blast! I've been tucking away my rewards gift cards to spend on Christmas. Now I've got 150.00 to shop on Amazon! And I just won another 25.00 reward last week. Santa is going to put an iTunes card in somebody's stocking! (BYW I always play for free!)
Freaking Awesome 5/5
By K-2 Brandon
Unbelievable app with chances to earn points toward cool prizes. No other app out there where you can make live predictions and chat with friends and former athletes. Bring NCAA Basketball can't wait!!!
Can’t Be Beat! 5/5
By Corl's Raiders
FireFan can make the average sports game a total blast. I especially enjoy competing against friends and family. Would not have as much fun watching football if it weren’t for FireFan. Thank You FireFan!
What a BLAST! 5/5
Played along live with NFL Thursday and College game day Saturday with some friends and had a blast! The live game picks make the game way more interesting and the competition among us made it way more fun. This is a great game for sports fans!
Love playing NCAA 5/5
Love that I can play all the NCAA games. Especially love the pre-game picks since there's so many games on the wknds. World Series was crazy fun too! Fast to get into, schedules are at my fingertips, and now they've added Favorites. Game keeps getting better and better. I've also cashed in so many gift cards to Starbucks, Amazon, Dominos ... and even donated to the Red Cross. Nice ...
Great fun! 5/5
By Zombee Gamer
Fun game to play. I like the chat while watching the games.
Spots, Sports, and more Sports! Love it!!!! 5/5
How can you not love this app.! So much fun. It really brings your friends and families together for a great time!
By Mormon Guitar Guy
The app is a really fun supplement to viewing sports on TV. It's a great way to connect to other fans who know how sports work and like to have an additional layer of enjoyment in their sports experience. Keep up the good work guys!
Fun app 5/5
I don’t generally like sports but this app helps me stay interested when my husband watches sports. The gift cards I get from it are a nice perk as well!
Love it 5/5
Makes watching football with my hubby a whole lot more entertaining! Really cool that I can donate my tickets to support charities, and Ive almost got enough for a $20 gift card for me too!
Makes watching sports even better 5/5
Chatting with friends and other fans while the game is live is awesome. Love competing against them and trash talking a bit!
App is dope! 5/5
FireFan is dope!! This is not a gambling app but I like the fact that you can redeem your points/tickets you earn. For gift cards, iPods, vacations and more! FireFan go!!
So much promise, but still disappointing 2/5
I am a casual sports fan, but competitive so I thought this would be a way to have fun and compete with family and friends without being dedicated to a single team. It’s a cool idea, but the number of times the app has failed to function creates disappointment and frustration. I’ve gotten the right picks on a drive and then the drive goes unscored. I’ve been in a tight points race and then new picks are not made available and a drive is not scored. I’ve invited more than 5 new players to join and they have and played games with me and I haven’t been credited with the best friend badge or show any progress of the social butterfly badge. I had one invitee download the android app and then not get to make all of their picks before they submitted. It was so frustrating, they uninstalled the app. I wish being an early adopter could have been a positive experience, but alas I am left with more frustration than it’s worth.
Needs a lot of work but nice concept 1/5
While playing live games, this app gets lots of picks wrong and doesn’t give options for picks many times. I play with people in a couple of different regions and some of us will get pick options and others won’t. Lots of bugs to be worked out. They have had a year to get it right and haven’t so I’m done with they.
By Gramma Sheryl
October 10 I believe it was I turned in 60 tickets for 12 tokens and still have not received s them. I am wanting to play tonight but I don’t want to purchase tokens or turn in tickets for tokens since I have not received the others. Very frustrating indeed! And now it is the 13th and I still haven’t received them but my tickets were taken out of my account.
Throw Up 1/5
I spent better money on beer in high school than I spent on this company. Spent a few thousand dislikes as an affiliate to make $10... Even got blasted by an executive for something I didn’t even do. I would’ve enjoyed a root canal more than my affiliation with this company.
This app is lame. There is nothing exciting about it. With all the money they took in from affiliates and the developers experience, you would’ve thought they could’ve came up with something better.
App is garbage and so are the people behind it. They should be ashamed. They get hard working people to spend their money in order to fatten their own pockets. They are messing with people's families and livelihoods. If you want to support people who like to essentially rob people, this is the app for you!!! The stuff they pull should be illegal.
Firefan sports 5/5
This app is a blast and a lot of fun. Me and friends have a great time playing against each other and we are able to keep in contact. They keep upgrading this app and I can't wait to see what is next. The upgrades are totally awesome. If you haven't check it lately you need to.
The most original app I’ve ever seen
Big Fan 5/5
I am a big fan of the FireFan app. Sure it had issues, but what app has it right the first time. It takes time to get this app right where it should be. Have to wait every 3 hours to get a token? Try to unlock Achievements and you will be rewarded with tickets, points and tokens. Look for other teams that reward you for winning. I did play a game yesterday on the app, was not working right, so I received a refund of my tokens and did get to finish the game to accumulate more points. The App gets better and better. I love this app!
Sound effects 1/5
By G-Dub G
The sound of the clicks when pressing a button, image, icon or any other menu is very annoying!! It simply can not be turned off!!
Why should you have to lower the volume on your phone completely in order for it to mute the sound? I checked the settings within the app and iPhone settings for this app, but there isn't any options!!
Need to give the user the ability to switch off the sound effects.
This app is trash 1/5
So inconsistent, it doesn't load and takes away opportunities to make picks. What a load of crap.
Love this! Interactive and informative! 5/5
Love being able to follow my favorite teams (even when In a meeting) while pushing to earn points, rank up and be the top of the points list! So much fun!
Great interactive addition to live games 5/5
I've been playing FireFan since last fall, seen it go through several updates. Game play is smoother, results for picks now load faster, and they now have NFL, NCAA Football & men's basketball, MLB, NBA, and more sports on the way.
Yes it is 9 tokens per game. I'm able to bank free tokens all week, via ads, achievements, invites, and ranking up from Free Pre-Game Picks to play about 4 free games a week. Check out the Choose Positive FireFan League on Facebook (@choosepositiveffl) to get more tips on how to rack up free tokens.
Sure occasionally the app will glitch, but so does my Xbox One. Heck, even CBS went off air during the first four minutes of the Texans game two weeks ago. Things happen. Every time there's been a major hiccup interrupting game play, FF has sent out a social media post and refunded spent tokens, so that's cool. Xbox doesn't give me credit for dropping me in the middle of a game....so yeah, good on FF.
In short, a fun game, even better in a group league or playing with the VIPs, and overall works pretty well for being out less than a year.
Can't even open the app after last update 1/5
I agree with other users that the logic of waiting 3 hours to watch another commercial to earn 1 token is irritating. It used to only take 6 tokens to play, now takes 9. You can only earn 6 a day. Regardless of that, I'm about to delete since I haven't been able to open the app in almost 3 weeks now.
