    BUG REPORTS

    The timestamps on private messages change, usually between GMT and GMT+4. Sometimes it stamps the newest message with one timezone, sometimes the other. I've been seeing this for a while on new message, but I recently noticed that when the timebase for the latest Pm changes, the times on old messages change retroactively. This suggests that the timestamps are stored in the database in one time, but at least some servers are interpreting it according to their local time (GMT+4 runs from Moscow south to the Middle East). This should be an easy fix. It's also a good idea to have any server's system time set to GMT. It rarely makes a difference, but it can glitch updates and has been know (historically) to cause network issues, esp in cascading failures. It's not worth the hassle, IMHO, so I set all my servers to GMT. Each user account can set their local timezone, if they so choose. If you don't run the servers directly, you could just set GoP to use a fixed "local time" vs the system time.

    Is there any future plans for there to be something that the hearts can be redeemed for? I have about 5200 hearts that I have earned from being gifted gifts at the table.

    BUG REPORTS

    Hey I logged in, got a notice about a new summer event, went to "read more" but then there is no way BACK to the game. SO I just clicked my bookmarked game, reloaded the page only to get a note that I must be logged in with another device. Um NO I AM NOT! In fact I am using a browser, Opera, that I do not use on ANYTHING ELSE since this game quit working at all with firefox. Quit opera, tried again, same thing, your logged in on another device. QUit, walked away, tried in a few min and it's up again. What's up with this? I tell ya, I won't be reading any more pop up notices.
  8. As a VIP+ who doesn't buy chips (okay, I bought an inexpensive hat package when I first started, but it was October, leading up to Halloween), I don't doubt their claims of a fair RNG. I'll admit that I saw some SERIOUSLY improbable-seeming patterns my first month or two (e.g. consistent patterns of specific PP vs PP pairings), so I know where ppl are coming from, but what I've seen in the past year and a half in poker corresponds well with what I'd expect, when you adjust for the high percentage of ppl who play long shots. (isn't that what hurts most? Ppl don't complain as much when beaten by a better hand that had them outranked from before the flop -- well SOME do, but they're SO CERTAIN that their (semi)bluffs are SO CLEVER that there must be rampant cheating. I LOVE playing against ppl like that) I was making a specific technical suggestion for something that can happen if you apply a 52-card algorithm to a 6-deck boot. If you don't SPECIFICALLY KNOW what the modulo-, index-, and other bugs can arise in a Fisher-Yates when you change the number of cards, then my original post would be meaningless to you. If they say they've checked that, I believe them. It would be relatively easy to check/fix, There's always one winner per hand, barring a tie. The rest lose -- i.e. 4-8 ppl lose every hand. There are MANY players facing you. If each is only "lucky" one hand in ten, you need to play sharp to stand a chance. The hands where you have ALMOST the "nuts" (the best hand) are the ones where you bet most and lost most for any tiny misjudgement. The odds are already so consistently in GOP's favor after rake that cheating would be 10x the effort for little reward. Those odds/rake are why casinos using physical cards instead of RNGs make money hand over fist. Are you such a great player that you know you'd win against eight ppl who will foolishly play every hand that looks good, even knowing that most of them will lose in the long run -- but not before stealing amny hands you expected to win. If so, play for real money instead of pretend chips. I'm NOT great (though I played profitably for real money in the early days of online poker, when it was legit for USAns to play, I've studied enough to see gaping holes in my play). I'm only fairly proficient. I made a few million (sometimes small losses, some time bigger wins) week after week, slow but steady, and took over a year to reach 1 Billion chips, playing the mid-levels, and capitalizing on team bonuses. I would have been pounded flat if the numbers didn't work the way I expected them to -- the way statistics say they should. The same goes for most of my teammates.

    7-day Team Challenge!

    Your posts at the opening screen as you log into the game really motivated the members of my team. They all got a spurt of energy from them and started playing again. Only 8 of our players on our team are still inactive and none of those 8 saw your message promising more chips in the Ruby chests. Thank you for being responsive and reaching out to the players that way. I looked at the leader board and the chip leaders are now moving upward once more, not downward. So, your changes must be rewarding these great players. Thanks again for your efforts at making this game fun. It must be working, because I am texting today with people in my poker buddies list that have been inactive for a few weeks to months. I noticed that I can no longer see my team standing in the team leaderboard. Even though we were in 1800th to 5800th place, it was a way to gauge how our team was playing week to week. Of course if we make it back up, into the top 30 teams, I would be able to see our team name again ;^) I like it that I can still see where I stand in the individual standings and motivates me to try to accumulate more chips. I was surprised to see that I am only 8 away from being listed in the top 50 in the Royal Poker table list in Vegas. Again, it motivates me to play some more at that table. I still love my team, my teammates and team leader. Thank you for all of your hard work.

    All hands are fixed preflop, once a deck it shuffled. But there are many ways you can play it ...

    Bonne, if you want more detailed avice on how best to play specific game like Royal poker, just ask.

    Best advice to get points is to try to learn to play (at least) a couple of games at the same time of whatever you tend to play, especially when you have XP boost (double points) activated. Also, Royal poker games (like oil storage) are good for points, if you learn to play them. You can afford to play quite aggressively with any hand that doesn't have a J or 10 iin it, and you will tend to at least break even over time, and then get chips from better team chests. Spin & play (100k buy-in) is also good for points, again you can play several at a time (start with 2) and play quite aggressively with any half decent hand, so anything with high cards, pairs, or pretty much anything that can make a straight or flush. Multi games can be a bit overwhelming at first (and don't worry if you miss the odd hand) but you will get used to it and it makes a lot of difference. Good luck

    1) Go all-in with the crappiest hands you can have, regardless of anything. CONSTANTLY. 2) Say thanks EVERY SINGLE TIME you win a hand, regardless of if you've been complimented before. Actually, NEVER say thanks when you're complimented. Say it ONLY after you win hands and no one says anything. 3) Laugh CONTINUOUSLY when someone loses, and say THAT HURTS, specifically when those wonderful, ONCE-IN-A-FOKIN-LIFETIME one-outers HAPPEN to take place, you know, when one player has flopped a set of Aces (with pocket aces), the table is A35, an opponent holds 59, the first player bets half the pot, opponent goes allin, AND OF COURSE turn & river are 55, OF COURSE, DUMBO! So, make sure to SPECIFY that THAT HURTS. These are the basic principles by which this auction platform is run, and these are the values of the platform's creators: Be AS OBNOXIOUS as the internet allows you to be -and the platform rewards you for that-, and pretty soon everything should fall into place.

    I have been on a really good team for some time now. They kept me on while I was on VaCay and couldn't play. I have never paid for anything for this game, I am were I am because I play as often as I can and think I'm getting better. I am discouraged that the chests do not reward much, specifically ... chips and hats... any advice to get diamond or ruby is greatly appreciated. I am stuck at gold and getting less perks then when I was only able to get silver before the change in chest rewards. Bonnie
  20. "Random" does not mean what you think it does. It does not mean that every displayed possibility is equally likely. It means that a) no player is favored over another; b) the selection of any given outcome is independent of anything the player does; c) other biases are eliminated. Read the Gaming Commission rules for slots in the most highly regulated Cash jurisdictions, like Las Vegas. I specify slots because essentially all slots today are digital, and only well-vetted software/algorithms are permitted by the Gaming Commission. Individual machines are routinely removed from service by the GC, which then analyzes the software it is actually runnng. Sometimes discrepancies are found, but those are heavily penalized AND result in more slots being removed/analyzed/penalized from that venue, which is seriously unprofitable for the casino. Every regulated jurisdiction in the US (I haven't read foreign laws) says the same thing: 1) it is completely permissible for different outcomes to have different probabilities (if you doubt that, quit playing because you're going to wrongly think that you SURELY came close to winning the MAIN JACKPOT in every long day of play, but you probably never came close once. Just look at how often ANY player (out of millions playing thousands of slots) ever wins a Main Jackpot. Or how often you have. Or anyone you know); and 2) once an outcome is generated by the random number generator, it may be DISPLAYED as any sequence of symbols that has that value. Sure, a casino could display every lost spin on a five-reel machine as three middle-fingers, an ass-mooning, and a giant EFF YOU, but where's the profit in that? They keep more players playing longer by displaying three cherries, a MEGAWIN, and a OHMYGAWD YOU NOW OWN LAS VEGAS AND ALL PROPERTIES?HUMANS THEREIN. Total cash value:0 -- because you don't have any 5-in-a-row matches. In other words, the law says 1) You're completely allowed to make the $1,000,000 jackpot 1,000,000x as rare as a $1 payout (or !00,000,000x as rare or 5,000,000,000,000x as rare) or even make a $1 payout 10x as rare as a total losing $0 payout -- as long as the odds are the same for everyone; and 2) Any displayed outcome that is worth $0 (or $1 or $10 or $1,000,000) is interchangeable with any other result of the same value, so you can display whichever of those equivalent outcomes you chose: 4 GIGAWINS and a fart = two lemons, two cherries and an angel.

  23. Yea but why make it look like a random spinning thing? If you put all those prizes on a spinning wheel, each space would have the same odds of being the one picked. Clearly this is not the case. So why not make more like a scratch and win card. 33% chance of winning puny prizes, one in a million you'll hit it big. That at least would be more up front. So if the spinning thing is set to hardly EVER give a winning number, perhaps so is the card game? I've sure played against enough all inners. That spin and play especially. And I've done it myself. There is a prize for winning a certain number of times, it's simply faster to go all in. I pick the cheapest game and do the all in thing. However... when I have time, if I'm up against an all in player and really want to win, if I keep folding, six or more hands in a row, it SEEMS the odds of my winning rise. It's almost as if the game knows who won so many hands in a row and tries to level the field. It shouldn't. If this were real cards your odds would be the same every time. What ever. Lately I've been collecting what little free chips I can. Maybe the NEXT round I can compete. Or not. Don't care.
  24. I lost it, got down to about 80m and grew it back to 200m before losing another 70m again recently. I tell you what really helps: winning a 10m tournament. Boosts confidence and pot!
  25. Not true. On PokerStars they tell you the break down of the likelihood of winning a top prize on their spin tickets; you have a 33.33% chance of winning the bottom tier prize, and the top prize is something ridiculous like 0.00001%. So, given I imagine the statistical odds of winning a prize is programmed similarly on GOP3 then you will rarely actually get the top prize but it does not mean that NEVER happens. I won $5m on the Mega Spin a couple of days ago, the top prize. I've also gotten top prizes on the gold ticket before. It does happen, but it's rare.

    BUG REPORTS

    That issue should have been already fixed @Worgen (Apex team).
  27. We understand your doubts @elon, but there's nothing to worry about. We would like to reassure you that our Random Generator Number (RNG) got certified. Scaling tests and shuffling were conducted on enough samples to prove that cards/numbers are unpredictable, non-repeatable and uniformly distributed.
  28. It was nice reading to all of your feedbacks Governors 🤠. As you may already know, our main purpose is to offer the best poker experience. Your in-depth considerations will sure be useful to take inspiration from for future re-balancings 👍.
