Rigged

I never seen so many flushes trips and full houses as I see in this game it's set up for bidding wars. In less than a hour I seen pocket aces at ONE table I call bs.

Pocket aces 3 times in less than an hour? I've never seen until playing this game. Today I had pocket aces and another guys goes all in I follow he had 10 and a 5 the 5 being club only. The flop was AK and something else anyway I had trips aces but nope he gets 4 clubs for the flush really? Bs and I see this crap happen all day everyday it seems to never fail it's almost predictable.

I hardly ever see a win with just a high card and been playing for over a month I'm level 252. Someone always has something just for bidding wars. Just today I've seen 3 runners where someone would only need one card but hey there's always that flush possibility on the table. I see it constantly it's rigged and I'm sure others will agree

Yeah, we don't rig the game in any way.

Why though? What is the incentive for the game to be rigged? What do they get out of it? There is no rake to make money off of. The only reason would be to bust people out in hopes that they will buy more chips. I have bought chips to buy stuff in the store and to inject my bankroll to play higher stakes. I do ok here. You see a lot of hands because players here are super loose and it's always multi player pots. So if more players are in the pot more hands will be made. Maths yo

Right, but that would be a pretty silly motivation for us to rig things given that the vast, VAST majority of people who play Prominence Poker never spend a dime. Those rare few who do are usually our most dedicated players -- the same players who would leave the game and stop spending money were it rigged.

There's just no reason for us to rig Prominence Poker, and PLENTY of reason not to.

I don't believe the game is rigged. Poker players will always think stuff is rigged. That's just the way it'll be. I've said it before and I'll say it again, poker is not a game for the conspiracy theorist. It'll play tricks on your mind and your perception of the universe, believe dat. Not directed at you Nex, just the listening audience.

Lets put a quick line between "Rigged" and "Randomness quality".

Rigging is a big claim and a bigger claim is the reason behind the rig (to get people to buy more chips). This is a 2 level claim here!

Rigging has the intention to deliberately create deals that provides the hands you are seeing. To be able to do that, you have to also know what the folded hands are. The winning hand may have been folded. Sure, there might be some codes to may sure the flop/turn/river produces a match up to the hole cards, but that logic goes against actually having a random generator. With so many hands going on, do you think Pipeworks made a programme to make sure every single dealt matches up with at least a set of hold cards? Even not being a programmer knows there is more coding to do that way. 

Being frustrated is fine. Taking into account there are more players that should be in the hand is also fine. Even challenging the card generation has poor quality is also acceptable....but "Rigged", this is a claim that you cannot substantiate, hence losing the proposed discussion way before you started the thread!

Think twice...before you act!

I mostly play low stakes Limit Hold'em at the casino I play at. I just don't have the bankroll that makes playing No-Limit fun, and more importantly, beatable. Vets will put an underfunded newbie to the test early and often. While they may lose chips early, my only hope would be to walk away with a double up. It's just not fun. 

But playing Limit has taught me a ton about how weak strong starting hands are if you cannot  Limit the players to the flop and turn, which is really hard in Limit. People are more likely to call for $3 or $6 with hands they lay down in NL for $20 or more. 

 

What you learn is, if there are straight and flush draws, beware. They hit all the time. In NL, you can bully the table and win pots. In Limit, you really need to read the board and play position. 

What's funny is that NL players will pop in and play Limit when waiting for a table, and they normally get killed. Then they rant like you see here, but it's at "bad" players who don't fold to their raises. They don't adjust their style, even though the conditions warrant it. 

All video game poker is just a different set of conditions. People complaining are just not willing to play the table as it is. And because our minds are hard wired to observe patterns, we tend to see them where they don't exist. So weak players blame the deck and other players, anything but themselves.

There does seem to be a hot seat or 2, where a few players will get the majority of the hands with high pocket pairs but will also land the required card on the river vs the other 4 players....

What I do perhaps share concern about having to adjust the play on this game against a sea of fishes, which IMP does certainly do not improve live gameplay to those who plays poker regularly.

I Don't believe its rigged, but its frustrating at times. I had 2.5 million in chips and even though i had higher pocket cards than my opponent, the flop always landed for him. I had pocket AA and he had JJ one being a diamond and 4 cards in a row were diamonds. I ended up only having 100,000 chips left. It sucks, but not rigged, shit happens. I just wish there were a way to safely build my chips back up, I'd love to pop the billionaire trophy, I enjoy this game a lot but now i sit at the 100 ring table for scraps cos i dont wanna risk my last 100K =D

There must be a huge flaw with their RNG or it is rigged my last implausibility happened at a 50k tourney I had pocket JJ Raised pre-flop 2 players call low board raise pot one fold and raise by fish I knew he had pair no draw was easy read annoyed I raised All-in just waning fold got call read was right and drew 2 pair on river. I'm tilted next hand comes because of course I had huge chip lead before this hand and now back to square one a little over 10k but I get QQ same play same results same read once again he doesn't fold read was correct and on river he gets 2 pair. What is the possibility of that you can say just bad beats or improper play but I read the guy and this game has so many bad beats my only way of holding on to some sanity is putting in while best and watch all the backdoors and rivers hit the most random of cards to the hot seat. I've seen people just afk tourny's and take 8-12 hands to get busted, how? and why haven't I uninstalled? Maybe I enjoy recording my bad beats and drowning in the misery of my game DVR.

i really enjoyed this game but now, i'm bored of it. After losing my chips and having to build them up playing online starting from the 10K ring table, finally managed to get back to 100K table only to be constantly beat on the river card. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr now this has happened a couple of times. Building back up to 100K table and then back down i go. Playing on the low tables is boring as fooooooook. I played on the 1M table and the adrenaline and anxiety is a real buzz even though i did lose my 2.5M bankroll. It still felt awesome. 

Granted the game is free so microtransactions is the way to make money just as so many free games do now. But is this the reason why you cant build your chips up without risk of losing them. Underground mode just seems pointless. 1 table to win at and then a boss. Once done theres no reason to bother going back there. Once beat you cant earn more chips from them. I wanna safely build my stack back to a million and get the adrenaline back playing.

I kind of realised the problem is not the Card generator, sure its fucked up at Times. But it's More the players that call everything and go all in with nothing. If this was real money no sane person would risk 10k based on a pair of 9 while there's An obvious flush laying on the table. And pull the Same move 3 Times in a row, and win. Losing from a Lucky dumbass is no fun. :( Sad face!

I built my chips up to 500K and now im back to 100K =) does my head in! Today i folded a 3 5 unsuitded cos a guy raised 6K pre flop. And in the end 3 more 5's came out and he literally had nothing not even a decent high card. I have no chance of getting back to high tables where people play with the cards they see rather than going all in with a pair of jokers!!

I'd have rather paid for the game and been able to win chips in underground mode to then go online with at the better tables. Than have to spend my money on a small amount of chips to try build my stack playing on tables where people call everything with nothing and then hit everything on the river. 

Higher stakes tables is where this game comes to life.

Underground mode in my opinion should be like online. Where you can choose head to head and choose your stake with your own bankroll and play against a randomly generated boss. Or a tournament using your own bankroll against underground thugs. Still the risk of losing but at least it brings purpose to the underground section of this game.
