  1. Yes, I tend to agree with Jen on this one. It feels like a bit of an intrusive sell strategy.

    The only thing is, I'm quite used to the exclamation marks because I get them on my friends icon for the 5 ghost friends messages I've have for years now. I've mentioned it before!! !!! ....  (see, have some exclamation marks, see how you like it 😉)    

    But at least with the friend section -  'ghost comments exclamation mark', it disappears each time I have opened the friends menu. Just comes back every time I log on. 😬

    Not so with the daily challenges exclamation mark. It's permanent.

  2. Yes I had something similar earlier today.

    Was playing in Crystal Palace and lost all my chips and it said you can rebuy back in but at first there was no button to do it. Just the message with no 'rebuy button'.

    Then after a while the 'rebuy button' appeared but when I tried to click, it said I don't have enough chips (for 5m buy-in) and wanted some USD to buy the chips.

    It was then that I noticed my 13.7 billion chips had disappeared!!! and it said 0 chips top left of main screen.

    Gave me a mini heart attack coz I was playing BJ at the same time and I thought maybe I accidentally bet the lot and lost everything.

    But I was only playing in High BJ (5m max bet) at the time so I thought that can't be right. Since realised that as it's only 100m max bet in BJ it wouldn't be possible to accidentally bet the lot anyway.

    So panicking I logged out and then back in again and thankfully all my chips were back.

    But there obviously is a bug which manifests now when you get wiped out in Royal Poker. Certainly Crystal Palace anyway.

    I'm guessing it might have to do with playing Royal Poker and BJ at the same time, as you can actually take all your chips in BJ (although my slider is set on 100m).

    Would be good it devs can look at it because this one is not good for my blood pressure!  hehe :)

    Howdy GOODKAT! 🤠 We would like to reassure you that we didn't actually remove the option to play Blackjack all by yourself. In order to be able to play Single Player BJ, just be sure to select the "private table" option displayed before entering any BJ tables.

    Yes, thank you Salvo. I since saw that friends can only join that table if you invite them. For some reason I thought they could join by clicking on your profile of their own accord so you didn't have control of keeping the table empty.

    But unfortunately it still has the timer in that mode ... thats the biggest issue for me.

  4. I quite like the new BJ format apart from two things.

    1. I think there should be a single player mode option - (so one where you can play on your own and even friends can't join).

    2. In that mode remove the timer on making a decision, (the problem is that its hard to work with that time constraint when playing multiple tables, which results in losing extra money).

     

    If this 'single player mode with no time constraint' mode were added it would give the option of playing exactly the same way as before the changes were made ..... but with the added advantage of all the new options.

    Btw I like the re-grouping of the betting amounts into the four sections, so with a 5m and 100m bet option added.

     

    But without doubt the biggest issue for me with the new format is not having an option to play without the time constraint now. It means that if I get sucked into a couple of big hands at another couple of cash tables I happen to be playing at the same time... BJ then decides to play my hand by sticking me on a 7 or something when the timer runs out. So I end up losing a (potentially big) bet on Blackjack while I'm momentarily distracted by the cash tables. The result is that with this new format I now either have to just accept losing a few big bets on BJ because I was distracted and couldn't play the hand properly, or I am limited to playing less multi tables at the same time to avoid that. Neither option is ideal. It will be even harder to make those BJ time constraints when I end up head2head in a couple of sit and go games I happen to be playing at the same time.

    So please consider adding this 'single player - no time constraint mode' as an option. Maybe calll it legacy mode or something, and add it as an extra check box below the one for 'private table, friends only'. 

    Obviously I understand the time constraint is necessary in modes when playing BJ with other players on the table. But would much prefer to have the option to play it as it was before  ..... as well as the new options. It seems like that could easily be done.

    Thanks

  5. I have a request.

    As team leader sometimes I click on a team mates profile via the team feed to look at their profile - usually to try to see how many rings they got so far in latest event or something, and it gives following drop down options;

    View Profile

    Invite to Poker

    Join: [Game]

     

    Problem is, if I do this whilst I'm playing quite often I miss the mark and end up hitting 'invite them to poker' rather than view profile.

    I know this happens a lot and not just to me,  and result is many people are getting random requests to join someone at games.

    It makes me feel uncomfortable when I accidentally invite them all the time coz it makes me look like some sort of stalker!!!

    Basically, it would be much better if the order of the options could be re-arranged so 'invite to game' isn't directly below 'view profile'.

    Maybe just switch 'invite to poker' and 'join game' options .... coz it's much harder to accidentally join their game (as obviously there is another step involved to do that - i.e. the table screen).

    Please consider this to make all us accidental stalkers feel more comfortable.

    Thanks

     

     

     

  6. It seems to be that anything you purchase in the shop gives you a stamp on the card.

    So buying, chips, gold and possibly GOP membership, gets you a stamp on the card. 

    When the stamp card is full you get free x3 megaspins, (so thats four purchases needed as they start you with one stamp on the card).

    You can acces the Stamp card easily via 'three lines icon' > top right of main screen (its the bottom option).

    Also if you click on monthly calendar icon from the main screen (it's in there at the bottom).

    And if you activate a super, mega, ultra, or black spin from your inventory, it comes up on that 'reel' screen, (again at the bottom).

    Well hmmmmm.  Seems I can't message you at all.  My inbox is full??????  I just looked, and no wonder even though I have messages marked to "notify me of replies" I never once ever got any kind of notice.  Every other forum I use, and I have been since the 90s, can send a notice TO MY EMAIL. Looks like it's all been landing here in my "inbox."  Lot of good that does.

    Anyway, how in blazes do you clear that?   I can't find a delete anywhere.

     

    Look, this is just easier.  My team name is Poker Slayers.   I'm artmakerjen on there.   If you wouldn't mind, send the leader a note explaining that I WANT to play, just can't get on. 

    (I actually got booted out RIGHT after starting a game on the halloween balloon too.   Nuts!!!!)

     

    Thanks in advance.

     

    Not sure how to delete those notifications, they may just dissapear when you click on them and view.

    Okay no problem, I sent a friend request to your team leader, and if they accept I can let them know about your situation.

    Currently you are still on the team, which is good news.

    First, steam.  I don't like using it.  It's why I haven't in ages.  Too many hoops to jump, too much garbage on their site to sift through, and WHY do I want to "install" it again?  I don't have to "install" anything to play on the youdagame site.

    Also... I worked hard to get to the level I'm at.  And collect all the hats and rings earned etc.   Start all over?   What's to say this won't happen again?

    No.  If support won't fix this then I'm gone.  Sad... but gone.

     

    BTW... I tried the game on Safari.  (I honestly forgot about that, stopped using it long ago.)  But I tried.  And I got the exact same error I get on opera. 

    "It seems that you attempted login after a long period of inactivity... Form validity has expired.  If you keep seeing this CONTACT OUR CUSTOMER SUPPORT FOR INSTRUCTIONS."

     

    YEA WELL CUSTOMER SUPPORT COULD NOT CARE LESS!!!!

     

    I got that on opera even though I was JUST PLAYING earlier that same day,

    And now I got that same error on Safari, and I don't think I EVER played using Safari.

     

    I do keep trying, in hopes that someone over there gives a hoot.  But no.  Seems no one does.

     

    I'll message you with my team name, thanks.

    Well it was just a possible solution.

    Not sure what you mean by hoops and garbage ... I just installed the interface once and set it up, and as I say, I now have a shortcut to GOP on my desktop which I just double click and it takes me staright into the game. Nothing else whatsover. No garbage, no hoops, could'nt be easier.

    But the issue with the browsers is definitely their end as you say, it's been going on for a long time, and it would be nice if they could sort it. But I'm guessing thats easier said than done.

  9. It sounds like you're trying to use a steam interface that was already installed on your computer and not working. You're talking about using an account you set up long ago, and already having the GOP app on it. With an old account attached to it (level 16 you said).

    My advice would be to scrap all that and start from scratch.

    You need a fresh steam interface with a fresh GOP app on it, that you can sign into using the email and pasword for your current GOP 3 account.

     

    So basically,

    1) Unistall steam from your computer (and ideally delete any trace of that, but uninstalling should suffice).

    2) Google the latest steam version download link and reinstall it back on your computer.

    3) Launch steam and SET UP A NEW account (using the same email and password as the GOP 3 account you want to use, i.e. your current one, the one you want to keep).

    4) Go to the steam STORE (top left of interface) and type GOP 3 in the search bar. Then get the GOP 3 free app.

    5) launch the GOP 3 app in steam and sign into the game, again using your current account email and password for that account you want to keep, (remembering to check the 'remember me' box when you do that).

    Note. Your new steam account note will now have the same email address and password as your GOP 3 account.

     

     

     

     

  10. I'm just trying to remember, but I think once I'd downloaded and run steam, and had the interface open, I downloaded the GOP 3 app and ran it, and it asked for log in details. I used my original account email and password, and checked the 'remember me' box' and off it went.

    As I say, I'd used my GOP account email and password to set up steam to be on the safe side, as this was gonna be the only game I play on it anyway. But I suspect that may not be necessary.

    Somehow I got a 'steam/GOP 3' shortcut on my desktop, so I can just double click that, and it opens launching straight into the game, no logging in.

    Plus you can put your own avatar in the steam interface> profile section, which is then displayed in game, rather than the 'blank head' avatar I guess you get via browser.

    Worth a go.

  11. Hi ARTMAKERJEN,

    I had the same problem and changed to steam and it's much better.

    If you have originally set up your GOP account via email, and log-on via browser in order to play, (i.e. firefox), you will be able to use that account via steam, so you wont lose any of your progress.

    I used to try various browsers to log-on,  firefox, chrome. edge etc to name a few, and had various problems with them all. A number of error codes, and notices coming up as to why I couldn't connect. Some common to all and some exclusive!

    But I have no problems with steam at all. It runs nicely as Salvo says, less 'choppy', and you even get a better 'full-screen' experience. Plus no logging in, I just double click the shortcut on my desktop and it launches.

    I don't think it's the code that causes the problems on the browsers, it's a number of other things.

    Anyway, I recommend downloading steam, and giving it a try. Probably just use the same email and pw you originally set up your GOP account with to be sure, (can't quite remember how I did it but it was fairly straight foward).

    Your team need you!!!!

  12. Another simple way of putting it is;

    I'm playing the game exactly as it's meant to be played (or at least the way GOP would prefer I play it, as per the general consensus).

    I am not losing the hand.

    And yet one way or another I am losing chips through no fault of my own, for at best a maximum of 6 points, which is disproportionate to the rake.

  13. Yes, the problem is there are many highrollers coming onto the table who were used to just shoving all-in when they see that straight on the board to get the points.

    Then you have a choice to either throw away the chips you already put into the pot, or call their all-in and pay the rake for the 6 points, which is disproportionate.

    So it's literally a no win situation when the board produces a straight now. You just lose chips one way or the other, and for 6 measly points.

    You would hope that after the newbies doing this once or twice and seeing the result they would stop doing that.

    But unfortunately this isn't the case.

    It really is quite frustrating.

  14. Hi guys,

    I have a gripe about the new points system and it concerns crystal palace.

    I was just playing in there and I get dealt KK, so a raise a little preflop.

    Then with the flop I hit a third K and so I'm confident I have a good chance of winning the hand and I raise a bit more, (8 or 9 times out of 10,  I'll go on to win it with a KKK full house, hence my betting).

    By the river I've managed to suck another couple of players in, but it just so happens the board has produced a straight which means a split pot.

    Going into the hand I had about 12m chips and one of the other players had 15m or so, so decent stacks.

    Because of the split pot on the board he now goes all-in, and I am either forced to match that bet, or lose all the chips I've already put in the pot.

    So I call, and the result is I now get 6 points and lose a load of chips to the house commission on the hand.

    Now, I played the hand exactly the way it should be done, betting incrementally at each new card because I believed I had the best hand. No bingo.

    I didn't lose the pot and was forced into either waving a substantial amount of chips goodbye, or calling, and paying a load of rake and getting 6 points for my trouble.

    That doesn't seem very well balanced, and maybe something to look at.

    Thanks GK

    Howdy Gookat! :)

    Regarding your questions, here are the answers:

    1 - It looks like you can only attach 1 screenshot per message. 
    2 - Feel free to reach out to our Support Team if you want to change your email address linked to your GOP account.

    Hope we have helped.

    Enjoy Poker Governor! ♠️♣️

     

    Thanks for the straightforward replies Salvo :)

  16. First question:

    Am I right in thinking that when I send a message to support via laptop that I can only add one attachment per message?

    When I send messages to support I sometimes try to attach two or three screenshots, and what happens is, I attach the first using the 'Choose Files' function, and then when I do that for a second time it appears to just overwrite the first file.

    I wasnt sure if all three were still there, and I could only see the last dsiplayed each time, but I then get messages back from support saying there only seems to be one attachment even though I mentioned three.

    So I'm guessing it only allows one attchment per message on that media.

    If so that is a pain.

     

    Second question:

    Is there a way to change the email address attached to my GOP account?

    For some reason when support reply to me it seems to take 4 or 5 days for it to come back through to my email. I know this because the date on support's reply is shown as 4 or 5 days prior to when it actually comes through to me.

    I think it's just a rubbish email account provider on the email account I have nominated for GOP.

    Anyway, by the time the reply from support comes back to me ... (usually saying, "it would be helpful for us if you could send those otther attachments that didnt come through"!! ) ... there is another message saying the ticket has now been closed due to the time elapsed.

    And then the moment has passed.

    Really it would be better if i could put a better email account on my GOP account for starters.

     

    Thanks
