1. Technical Experience:
I’ve experienced a couple technical issues while playing on Beta. I’ve reported these via Live Chat to support already who said they would forward to the developers. I also have written some suggestions on the forum to improve the way certain games function. The game performance seems to be great, except when there is maintenance with no notice to the players. I would love to see a warning before you go offline, so we can know what is going on. I’ve not had any issues with commands or bet speed, but did have an issue with account functions. I was unable to withdraw commissions in beta. I reported the issue via Live chat to support. The feature worked fine in v1.0 so I was able to complete the task I was trying to do. I usually play on a Windows 10 Laptop running Chrome or Firefox. I like the design of beta a lot. I would prefer it if there was a light theme too, but the dark theme works fine.
2. Reports, Bugs and Suggestions:
I reported two bugs to live chat already. The first had to do with not being able to withdraw affiliate commission on beta and being given an error. I sent support a screenshot of this bug already. The withdrawals worked successfully on v1.0. However, after successfully withdrawing all commissions I got the same error again when trying to withdraw affiliate commissions with no balance left. I also got the same error on Beta today. Error is
Field "createCampaignWithdrawal" argument "currency" of type "CurrencyEnum!" is required but not provided.
The second bug I found and reported to Jelena was:
If you select BTC and then go to the cashier > faucet. Before doing the captcha you change the coin, then it seems to never stop loading on the collect button. I have been able to repeat this issue a few times. I've also been able to repeat it with different coins, and trying to change them before using captcha
Jelena was able to reproduce the issue too.
I’ve left a few suggestions in the Stake forum too on minor things like notes for tips and friends. I also left some suggestions for adding fields to auto bet for total profit.
3. Overall Experience of the Version 2.0:
*Do you like original version of the Stake or the new Beta version?
*What is your feedback on the new games - Limbo and Video Poker?
*What is your experience of the old games updated and would you change anything and in what manner?
*Let us know what segments you enjoy the most and the ones that bother you.
I played on Primedice since 2015 for several years. However, I only joined Stake a couple weeks before the upgrade to the 2.0 beta. I’m not sure my feedback is going to be as relevant as some of the other players as I don’t have much experience with the original version.
I love Limbo, and like chasing the high multipliers, but it has been killing me financially 😊 I hope to hit the crazy multipliers I have been chasing this century so I can recover haha. I like video poker too and understand how it plays, but have not been able to hit any of the bigger wins recently. As a result, I’ve slowed down my play on it.
I noticed some games did not have the Total profit on win field in the autobet section. Made the suggestion here:
I am a little disappointed that the 5000x Plinko multiplier disappeared, but like that the other Plinko pins have high multipliers now too. Would love to see 5000x or even 10,000x on Plinko back.
4. Stake v1 vs. Stake v2 (compare):
I only played on Stake v1 for about 2 weeks before switching to v2, so my feedback here may not be as relevant since I don’t have as much experience with v1. Overall, I like the I love the instant bet feature when I’m chasing a crazy multiplier.
*Dice on Stake 1 vs. Dice on Stake v2
Dice seems to work great on both. I did notice it appears to be a bit faster on v2, but I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing as my money finishes quicker haha.
*HiLo on Stake 1 vs. HiLo on Stake v2
Didn’t play HiLo on v1, but love HiLo on v2. I like the fact that you have the option to skip cards especially when you have a middle number like a 6, 7, or 8.
*Keno on Stake 1 vs. Keno on Stake v2
Played Keno on v1 after v2 came out. Sadly I had no big wins on v1 and on v1 the payout multipliers appeared to be lower than on v2. I had some good luck with v2 with some high multiplier wins so I’m going to say I prefer v2.
*Mines on Stake 1 vs. Mines on Stake v2
I did not play mines on v1. Mines on v2 is fun although the payout multipliers are missing from the game play. I’ve been watching the progress of DarkBlood who tried to complete a challenge he set for himself on Mines. Its been fun being his male cheerleader but it was also helpful to know the payout multipliers he achieved.
*Plinko on Stake 1 vs. Plinko on Stake v2
Did not play plinko on v1. Plinko on Stake 2 appears to be quite hard to profit at for me. I do try and go for the higher multipliers, but never seem to hit them. I was watching Shinjos live stream too, and he had similar difficulty. I am going to stick with games which work for me financially. I might try again if the 5000x or higher multipliers came back.
*Blackjack on Stake 1 vs. Blackjack on Stake v2
Did not play blackjack on v1. Blackjack on v2 works great! I really like it.
*Roulette on Stake 1 vs. Roulette on Stake v2
Did not play Roulette on v1. Roulette on Stake 2 works great. Auto bet feature may have issues with it though according to some other players.
*Wheel on Stake 1 vs. Wheel on Stake v2
Did not play Wheel on Stake 1. I like Wheel on Stake 2 a lot, and have been able to hit some of the higher multipliers regularly 😊 I like the instant bet feature too.
*Diamond Poker on Stake 1 vs. Diamond Poker on Stake v2
Did not play Diamond poker on stake 1. Like it on Stake 2, but which full houses and above got higher multipliers rather than just 1.5x or 2.0x.
*Baccarat on Stake 1 vs. Baccarat on Stake v2
Did not play Baccarat on Stake 1. Played it on Stake 2 for the challenge, but don’t really understand this game too well.
