Kat, I will switch your ad provider as well. Let me know if you experience that again.

I have had the redirect for the past 6 months on this site. I have used Firefox and chrome both and get the redirect. The ad server you are allowing to be used should be rejected by Videopoker.com as a malicious service provider. Just saying

Thank you


I agree. Players who tolerate ads shouldn't be subjected to malicious ones. I have dealt with it for at least four months now. One time it wasn't even while playing. It was looking up games in the "find in casinos" section.

Unfortunately, these ads are making their way into ad suppliers all over the web. It is not unique to this site.  The suppliers are supposedly doing what they can to track them down, but obviously not to the extent we would like.For those on iPad and iPhone, we have just switched our ad supplier again (as of 10am Pacific today). Please let us know if you notice any improvement, or not.We will continue to be proactive in trying to make our free membership the best it can be, which includes ad performance. Reporting these when they do happen helps us know when it a bigger problem, as it has been lately, so thank you for the reports.

Just had several redirects in the middle of a contest game. Just started playing again because of this issue in the past. I think I'll just stick to the forum in the future. Not worth having to restart/shutdown my computer.

It's happening again with these redirects. In two sessions of the monthly contest , I got thrown off five times. I cleared history etc, and it happened two more times. Only happens here.

I got a redirect tonight saying I got a virus, and a pesky popup. Told me to call a number to "fix" the problem. I had to ctrl-alt-delete the sucker. As our President as of Friday *shudders* would say on twitter at 3:30am, "Very Sad!!!"

I also keep getting the chrome update fake site redirect. It has been happening for awhile and I don't appreciate it.
