Troubleshooting

If PlayThru isn’t loading for you, please check the following:

  • If PlayThru is set to “Lightbox” mode, it won’t display until after your form has been submitted. You can check which mode PlayThru is set to in the “Game Style” section of the Dashboard.
  • Make sure that you are using the correct publisher key and scoring key.
  • Check to see if your server and/or network has a firewall which prevents outbound connections via port 443.
