Contest ads

Post by Onenickelmiracl »

Just purchased a $700 laptop assuming all would be good here, but not so. I'm not really sure how the website can consider contests fair, when the ads interrupt hands currently played. Non-gold getting 97-98 hands out of 100, that's really swell.

Its not like contests are good uses of time in the first place, but if people participate, they should be fair contests. The site is corrupt as far as contests go. The only right thing to do would be to remove ads from the contests, so they're fair competitions.

Sorry to hear that. Ads affect people differently at different times and they can certainly be problematic when a bad ad comes along. I'll switch you to another ad network. Please let me know if things improve.

If a particular ad is causing problems on a regular basis, please report it by sending a screenshot to forum@videopoker.com so we can attempt to remove it.

I've heard similar stories from folks who play for real about the games in Atlantic City.

One more thing. Are you familiar with the Outer Sanctum?

I really like the monthly contest,but lately my rounds are being stopped when I get a message that i am attempting to connect to a website titled Adsafeprotected and the web certificate is expired.this pops up during contest play ,and even though I cancel the action,it continues to come back multiple times in each round.Each time, I lose the hand I am playing and it goes to the screen that says You have an unfinished round would you like to rejoin etc as if I had quit mid round.This only happens on this site. is there anything that can be done to stop this? Is anybody having the same issue?
