You need to make sure you are connected to our servers, which means you should be connected to internet and have a Game Center account. To verify you are connected to Game Center, when starting the game you should see the Game Center notification (ex:"Welcome back, you alias").
If everything is good and you see the timer "Free lucky token in..." , this could be due to the game crashing on startup due to running low in memory. Please turn your device off and on, this should help. We submitted a new update (1.0.4) which reduces the memory usage and should help with this issue.
