  1. As stated above, we made this very clear to the entire community, that you are responsible for handling your own risk. We cannot hold your hand while you make decisions with who you send and share your money with. Risk management is a responsibility that you need to learn and handle online and in real life. Learn from your mistakes and ensure you don't do it again, otherwise all this complaining was for nothing.
  2. You shouldn't be gambling at a Casino if you can't afford to do so. I think it's time to re-evaluate your life decisions. We are happy to help and support you if you would like by banning your account. Let us know.
  3. We have various marketing campaigns that target all types of users. Some are specific to certain criteria, but that's not the entirety of them. If you were around during all the dates we launched new currencies, you would have received a bonus for all of them (just as an example.) We just checked our marketing campaigns and can see you have opened and claimed 10 already with your account. We do not have any obligation to divulge the criteria for our marketing campaigns.

    Please bring back the old or bring on a new.

    We haven't changed any of the algorithm on how rainbot works since it was first created. I am not sure what you are referring to? Chat has no influence on the rain likelihood, wagering gets you a ticket based on your rank with all the other people in your chat channel. For example, the higher wager (since last rain) gets the most tickets to the "rain lottery" and the least gets the fewest (1). If there arent enough tickets being consumed by the wagering people, then a free ticket is provided to anyone who has spoken in chat (since last rain.) This is how it has always worked and we haven't changed it for a long time now. Just because you have more tickets, doesn't mean you are guaranteed to be rained on. Its also very likely that there are others wagering much more than you during your gambling sessions, and therefore you aren't as likely and/or lucky. The other thing to consider, is there is also a cooldown on how often you can be rained on. I am also fairly certain there is a feature where if you are in multiple chat rooms, you are less likely to receive rain, due to trying to abuse the system.
  5. I can assure you, she certainly didn't use the faucet to get to 1 BTC.

    Guest mode on the forum?

    The appeals section also lets you post without registering. This is to help prevent players making multiple forum accounts when appealing a ban. The entirety of the forum is available to all forms of unregistered people to read. But they can't communicate usually until registration (except for instance stated above) The other time a guest account might exist is when we delete a user form our database. Their post is then changed to a guest name.
  7. The gamble feature will not be incorporated in the initial video poker version. We may look at incorporating something similar once we release our slots game. You can only swap once. Just as all traditional video poker games work.
  8. The influence of Poker on modern gambling and our implementation of “Jacks or Better” Read on Medium The origins of Poker, its influence on Slots and the birth of Video Poker Although the origins of poker are as enigmatic as your opponents hand, the beginnings of the popular card game can be traced back to some time during the early 19th century in the United States. The popularity of the famous card game expanded with the american frontier and so did it’s influence on gambling. Toward the end of the century, pokers popularity was evident by its influence on the advance of commercial gambling technology. In 1891, the first slot machine was invented when the Sittman and Pitt Company from New York built a poker inspired machine that had five reels containing the images of 10 playing cards. When operated, each reel would then spin and eventually stop on a playing card, making a final poker hand. Fast forward all the way to the 1970’s, Dale Electronics introduced the world’s first video poker machine dubbed the “Poker-Matic.” Even though it was not popular during the time, it was still installed in every Vegas Casino, which in turn laid the groundwork for the future of Video Poker. How to play Jacks or Better When it comes to our Video Poker game, we have chosen to follow the industry standard when it comes to game rules. Regularly referred to “Jacks or Better” is the most popular version of Video Poker, where the payoffs begin at a pair of jacks. Once you accept your wager, the dealer will draw you five cards. From there you select which you want to keep and which you want to discard. If you choose to discard certain cards, you are then dealt replacements and your final hand then dictates whether you win or lose. The better your hand is (based on the traditional poker hand hierarchy) the more you win.

    In regards to Stake Awards 2018

    This was a vote decided by the community. There is no monetary value. If there was, the votes would be abused. We run these in the spirit of the community. There's no need to monetise every single event we hold.
  10. I am a huge fan of sphere dice, it's in my opinion the far superior dice experience.
  11. Each game once you place your bet, is a new nonce, meaning the next game is a new deck of cards. You can confirm by using the fairness tool on the website. It will reveal the complete chain of cards in the deck in the order it would have been placed.
  12. Yeah mate, you just need to make it clear. But once it becomes a problem, you can expect us to have to shut it down. Once someone contacts support or myself to ban a player on the forum for a scam they conducted inside that group, we shut it down.
  13. I would consider based on the mentality of this community, anything that isn't included in the forum rewards program is probably useless because nobody will use it.
  14. I don't think you're crazy. I think I know what you are referring to. Last year we offered a bounty for reporting HR bet's? As you are aware, and stated above, the condition of this bounty is we wanted public HR bet's to post on socials. That was simply the conditions of those bounty's. Since we have a new reporting tool, we no longer needed to run that "mini promotion." I'm a tad confused about how that relates to this particular instance though? Are you looking for compensation for reporting bets during a bounty period that were not eligible then, because we report anonymous bet's on social media now? If that's the case, perhaps you are a tad crazy 😛 As for the answer to your original question, it's answered above in my previous response.
  15. Technically you can do what ever you want, BUT if we let you create that group on our forum, then people will think theirs some false illusion that we will protect them against scams because its allowed. So I would have to say no, we don't want it. If someone scams you or someone else, we won't be banning them, since it's not our problem. You need to learn to manage your own risk, and do so through your own avenues.
