Why is my Switch game code not working?


What if you followed the steps accurately, but your key is still not working?

The problem may be in entering the key.

The codes are 16 digit characters long which are a mix of numbers and letters.


Recheck the code and make sure that you don’t miss any digit.

Also, make sure that you are able to differentiate your 0 (zero) and O, Q and D (letter), 1 and the capital letter i, B and 8, G and 6… and so on.
