How to hide updates in Facebook ticker?

How do I hide certain updates from the Facebook ticker on my main page? (The ticker is that real-time-updating list of news on the right side of the web page.) In particular, I want to hide updates from Words with Friends (e.g. "Aunt Idontgetsettings played OLD in Words With Friends") and Spotify.

that one can simply:
1. Click a story you see in ticker
2. Click the menu in the top right
3. Choose "Hide story"
But I the menu doesn't show up for me. When I click any story in the ticker, it pops out with the full story to the left. When I mouse over that popout to the left, there is no menu in the top right. The only thing is an "x" in the top right, and when I click that the only option is "Report story or spam".
Facebook Help also presents an alternative, which is to hide these stories from my Newsfeed. But this Spotify/Words with Friends garbage doesn't show up in my Newsfeed, so I don't have the opportunity to hide it from there.
I'm using Chrome, but had same behavior in Firefox.
