At least for hu hypers this really does destroy the network tables. I play on multiple skins; on lock these lobbies really dilute the pool (8 lobbies instead of 4 shown), they pop rarely, but they're more valuable to have (because of the higher rb%). I would hate for my traffic on other skins to suffer because all the action from lock goes to 2 lock players sitting each other on the Double Agent tables. You can be sure regs will have those lobbies whenever they're around, and why would anyone turn down free money to play on regular versions?

Not a bad idea, but I think the implementation is really flawed, especially for husngs where a number of the regs are playing on Lock. This unbalances the game for players on other skins.

Re: DECEMBER PROMOTIONS

Seems there are a smaller number of prizes than before at a lot of the levels. I think a rake chase should reward the biggest grinders so I shouldn't complain but I think I will be missing a few levels that I was able to hit the last couple months which is disappointing. Maybe I'll run hot and move up. I think I liked one chase with more prizes better, but I'll probably feel the opposite if I move up.

Traffic seems pretty bad in the games I play as well tonight. Idk if it's related or not.

Is there a way to track your MGR on the double agent tables?

Re: DECEMBER PROMOTIONS

This promotion is very confusing. I've only played on Double agent tables, have finished 4 levels in rake, paid 3 levels on the regular rakechase and 2 levels on the double agent tables.

I considered that maybe the double agent one refreshes more slowly, but thetunk has finished more levels on the double agent than the regular, which shouldn't be possible.

Re: DECEMBER PROMOTIONS

How do you measure your double agent progress?

Re: DECEMBER PROMOTIONS

Re: DECEMBER PROMOTIONS

It looks like there's been a dramatic reduction in the number of prizes. People who rake in the $1000-$4000 range for the month most likely won't be receiving nearly as many levels this month. In fact, people who rake in that range will likely end up losing almost all of the value of this promotion.

Re: DECEMBER PROMOTIONS

Yeah it seems like they want as little players participating in their rake chases as possible.

Re: DECEMBER PROMOTIONS

Is there still a monthly lock lotto winner for a really big prize or just the daily winners now? And if not, when did it stop? Was justfold22 the last winner in August?

Re: DECEMBER PROMOTIONS

makeit - I believe that is correct. They removed the bit about the monthly prize from their website and seemed to have some difficulty/delays awarding that big prize.

Of course, they still have a picture of a car on the Lock Lotto promo page which doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

And it still says "all through March, April and May" which looks really odd and goofy now that we're in December. But I guess it will become relevant again in a couple months in a sort of "stopped clock is correct twice a day" sort of way.

To win the 45k you need to rake 110k and win every level.

For clearing the final level, you win 5k and need to be among the first 10 to clear that level. The 8k number is the amount of rake required beyond the previous level.
