Scoring Question for Weekly Game

I have a question (red challenge flag) for the high score for the weekly game. How is the total for 4 Aces with a kicker (kudos to them getting dealt that) 4000 x10 for 40000 per hand 5 times? Looking at what the multiplier IS (2X) should be 8000 per hand 5 times. I don't see where they're getting 10X per hand at? If there is/was a malfunction shouldn't the score be voided like in a real casino. I'm not complaining, just curious how the math is

This is the 2nd place score, added wrong AGAIN.

This is very disturbing - if this whole thing is rigged then I'm not wasting my time or my money for a gold membership any longer. This is not "random" as video poker games are supposed to be. I'm expecting an explanation. - Laurie J

The multipliers you are looking at, and referring to, in the first two examples are for the NEXT hand, not the hand on the screen. The multipliers for the hands on the screen are the ones in the boxes.

Sometimes the screen capture happens immediately, sometimes there is a delay. As was noted, you are seeing the multipliers earned for the next hand (after the animation) rather than the current one.

why is the 3rd place one MATCHES up with what the multipliers for? The other two DON'T match up

That explanation doesn't make sense. The 3rd place holder's multipliers match to the score given.
You can see why we are questioning your methods when the scores don't match the screen capture. I'm not convinced this whole site isn't rigged BS.

It does make sense. The capture in one is about a second later than the previous one. The correct score is given in both. Because of timing issues, the capture can happen later or even miss a hand unfortnately. That says nothing about the score being awarded correctly.

If you play the game, I think you will find that the correct multipliers are always awarded. If you press spacebar to deal immediately after the win, the next hand may start before the screen capture completes but the score will still be correct. This is a trade-off to keep the speed of play at a good pace rather than delaying for a screenshot on slower systems.

Some people’s systems stutter and cause delayed rendering issues which can also make for some odd screen grabs... but again the scores will be correct.

I do understand what you are saying and noticed the late capture on this one myself when viewing the results. Very annoying... for obvious reasons. But you’ll notice the multipliers to the left are what were earned by the dealt royal / aces w kicker hand.

screen grabs are very deceiving...if you were playing this game you would have seen the multipliers 'drop' into place for the hand...it is scored correctly.
