  1. What is The Stamp Card and how do you access it?
  2. I have been playing in the Royal Poker Balloon Event. Are you seeing those hands there? I just ran a table with 2 AAAKK full houses, a straight, a Royal Flush and 4 Qs. I see at least one Royal Flush, if not two during one of the Balloon events. The minimum hand that winds 99% of the time at Royal Poker is a straight and if there is a straight on the board, everyone wins. You get your chips back, but there are only 6 team points in Vegas. I still hate the lack of team points in the Vegas Royal Poker table. All I can win there is chips. Since you guys changed the points system, I still go there to win chips and I am going up at least 15 million per day. I have won 80 million per day for the last two days -- but I am not collecting enough team points to advance to Ruby or Emerald.. I still cannot get above Diamond level in the team competition. I was earning Emerald each week for 29 times in a row. I would rather win Emerald Rings than chips. The only good thing that has happened with all my experience at playing Royal Poker is that I won my very first event ring after 4 years and 7 months of playing GOP3. It is no coincidence that the Halloween event is Royal Poker. I know how to play royal poker and win, but you guys have gutted the game for team points.
  3. Thank you so much! I am now at level 211!!! Thank you for being responsive;^) This is wonderful. (I still like my idea of resetting to 0 and giving us a ring each time we reach the max level. More levels is just as good.)
  4. It has been 3 weeks and the new Royal Poker makes it impossible to make team points at that table. No matter how much you bet, if you tie a hand, you only get 6 points. That would be fine, except that there are hands where I tie the winning hand and I win a large number of chips because other people have dropped out of the betting or they lose the hand with two of us winning and we get 6 points each. I would give up playing Royal Poker, but I end up winning tens of millions of chips a day at that table, but not earning many points. I have now reached diamond level for about the third week in a row, where I was winning emerald level before. The only other thing is that it seems that everyone else is suffering too. There seems to be very few emerald players at the Royal Poker tables. I play mostly in Vegas and some games in Gold Rocks and I am no longer seeing emerald level players at those casino levels. I go to the Strip and all I see are emerald and ruby level players there with occassional diamond or lower players. This is not a complaint, but just an observation. My team is now down to only one player each week reaching emerald level. I cannot even hope to reach ruby level. BUT - I keep winning about 25 million in chips per day and I am advancing in the leaderboard. I miss winning all of the emerald level perks...
  5. I do like the idea of a turd as a gift. After Jean Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) played the poop emoji in one of the popular movies, it would seem that it would be socially acceptable.
  6. Thank you! It seems like there are more adolescent players at the tables. I personally have to mute about 20% of the players whenever I play against shark or lower level players. Overall, I still enjoy playing GOP3.
  7. I tried to purchase the $44.99 level of GOP Club Membership and going through Steam, Steam will not let me. I click on the button and the button in GOP just spins and spins and spins, then changes to the green USD 44.99 button. About 1 out of 3 tries on clicking the button, I get the message : "Are you sure? If you completed payment for this membership, please reboot the game or wait 24 hours to process before trying again." I click on continue and the button once again spins and spins and changes to the green USD 44.99 button. What is maddening is that this happens with every choice of button except the $99.99 button. I just want to try a lower level, not $99.99 for 90 days. What is going on?
  8. Well, my son did a study of the players in the game. The team that we are on, before the change, there were 4 to 10 people on the team that made Emerald. This last round, there were only 2 players that made emerald out of 50. He counted the number of poker buddies that made emerald before the point change and he counted 14 players. After the change, he said that he counted 22 players that made it to emerald!!! We both are poker buddies with mostly VIP players. He asked them what they thought of the new point system and they invariably played at the straight poker tables, not the Royal Poker tables. They like the new point system, because they say that the number of fish at the tables has gone up and they are having a great time taking their money at the poker tables. Actually, when I am at the tables, other than royal poker, the non-VIP players, expecially the "shark" players, are "giving" their chips to me. They go all in on ridiculous hands. All I have to do is be patient and I match their bets when I have a great hand and take their money.
  9. I have a poker buddy who is a VIP player with over 5 billion chips. She is getting sexually harrassed at the tables. She says that she has reported the incidences, yet it happens over an over with the same people. How often do you guys follow up on these reports from the tables? I know that I have complained here and it seems to me that whenever I complain, the offending people or their offending avatar pictures or behavior at the tables, stops. I apologized to her, because of the way that inventory mechanics are, I accidently click on the sex toggle and my sex changes from male to female. Whenever people send me lewd comments at the table, I just click on the sex icon and change myself back into male and they 99% of the time, stop. The 1% that continue, they start calling me a "pussy." I just ignore them and try to up my game and take all of their chips and bust them. I am not normally that way. I do not play to bust people at the tables and usually end up sandbagging people. So, when I play to bust people, I feel that I have been insulted. What I find is that these people that make these lewd comments to female players, are terrible poker players. Anyway, what can be done for my Poker Buddy?
  10. I just looked at my team. With the new point system, no one on my team looks to have enough points to win the eighth chest. On my team, last week, four players made it to emerald. Each week we have had as many at 8 players make it to emerald. If you are going to make it this hard to win the eighth team chest, please take us back to the 8th chest being the ruby chest.
  11. I do not understand this thread. My understanding is that the cards are dealt from a 5 deck shoe (simulated). So, one could see those card combinations show up at least twice in a row, theoretically. There is a place somewhere that I saw that explains this. If someone could post the link here, I think that it would help this person.
  12. Yes, that would be great. I am glad that you posted. I would like a ring to show how many times I earned 210 points. The rings and trophies are really challenging to me and each one means a lot to me.
  13. What, those are rabbit feet? How do you think I feel? I thought they were cats paws. I feel much better now. They are not cat paws, but rabbit feet. Thank you for explaining. I feel better now. I can tell that annoying person that laughs at me and says that he is sending me cat paws, that he is wrong and they are rabbits feet. I feel better now. I do get upset when he sends me the cat burgers. Thank you for this post. I feel better now.
  14. I do not understand why people think that saying "Thanks" is insulting to the people that lost after you win a hand. I say thanks for saying, "Thanks for Playing." What I find more insulting is people laughing at me after taking my money. Why do we have that as an option? Do you not find that more insulting and un-sportsman like than "Thanks?" It is all a matter of interpretation. What I do now is just mute the conversation with people that do that rather than have people laugh at me for taking my money. Once you laugh at me after taking my money, mute goes on. If you are getting upset by what people are saying, you should just mute the conversation. What I find ridiculous are the people that lose and laugh at me for winning, like losing 5 million in chips is a laughing matter. I work hard for my chips. These laughing guys, t think are crazy. But, I will take their chips if they are going to give them to me and they can laugh all they want. When I play, I play the percentages. When I get a 2 7 hole cards, i fold the hand. I sit and fold hand after hand until I get an ace or two to a straight and or flush pair. That is why I liked the auto reply option, "only getting bad cards." Since that is no longer an option, that is what I have on que as a paste in the comment section. That is my solution. If you have a trite saying, just have it ready to paste in as a comment.
