I am playing on Titan and had no problems so far. The latest cashouts took mere hours (Neteller).

There's no T-money, only tokens that are valid, at best, only for all tourneys of the same buy-in level If the event is recurrent (say, weekly), then you'll usually be able to use the rest of the tokens in it in the following weeks. If the event is one-off or rare like Irish Poker Open, the rules regarding duplicate seats should be mentioned specifically in its T&C at the room's website, e.g. for IPO it's permitted to sell the second and further won seats to another player(s), or exchange the second, third and fourth won seats for a bit less cash (€2150) than the package value (€2250).

Re: Official iPoker Thread

Been playing today with no issues.

Genting have just contacted me and refunded me for the sit and go I registered yesterday and was unable to play, so happy with their customer service regarding yesterday's issue.

These things happen, hopefully no more issues.

Well that's lucky, I contacted support yesterday about not being to play for over 2 hours after registering for the 75EURO sunday tourney.

They emailed me today and said "they are looking into it". Makes me think that cause I could log in 2 and a half hours later with 10 blinds that I wont be refunded. What was the buy in for your SNG?

Ladbrokes refunded me for my Sunday Special entries. They said they had passed on the details of my Sunday Prime entry to iPoker to see if I get a refund. The wording suggested that it was Ladbrokes rather than iPoker that had provided the Sunday Special refund.

Hmm, it differs here as the Winter Sale is a rare event and I think you won't be able to reg into the normal (€150) Sunday Special later anyway... If the satty description says that it awards a seat to a certain explicitly named tourney, I'm afraid it's valid at best for tourneys with the same name only. At least, out of caution, I wouldn't play such one for the first time unless I intended to play in the target event, and only then have a look at the token I'd get for the unregistration. As for whether it can be used in a following week instead or should be played through immediately, I fold here lacking experience, we need a satellite reg to step in here

But I can't imagine iPoker being cruel enough to disallow postponing play in the recurrent tourney of the same name. At least I know that giving tokens that are valid for any tourney of the same name (like a generic IPO sat token good for 3 months) as cashback is indeed practised.

However, it's common for skins to give generic tourney tokens as a cashback reward or a prize in the Steps system, whose name contains just the buy-in amount without a reference to a specific tourney, and those can be used for any tourney of the same buy-in.

That said, it's often not a good idea to grind satties on iPoker because, unlike at Stars, player points are generally not awarded when using a token to buy in, as opposed to buying in by real money. (Skins have the right to credit points manually on token buy-ins but not all of them use it.)

In general, if you reg using a token and then unreg, you'll always get the same token back and be able to reuse it wherever it's eligible (the scope of each token is specified in the 'Tokens' section of the 'My Poker' tab of the client).

TL;DR: read T&C wherever you find them, remember that it's iPoker

Re: Official iPoker Thread

just saw the cash game lobby after the update. so how the seating process has changed? There is a "play now" button now, which seem to randomly seating me on a table at the selected stake, but is that normal, that i cant see the specific tables on a certain stake?

Re: Official iPoker Thread

It's just the default lobby view that has changed. There are three small pics just above the stake list (in the same line as the search form, but on the left), switch from the middle one to the left one which shows four horizontal lines, and you'll be back to the good old table list format.

Do you guys know any mods (are there any avaible?) wich would help improving performance of the software? iPoker seems kinda laggy for me, maybe there is a solution for this?

Re: Official iPoker Thread

I'm certainly also interested, have only tried to give casino.exe high CPU priority in a process manager with some success but hotkeys getting frozen sometimes; giving it real-time priority failed, as casino banners froze everything

Re: Official iPoker Thread

Well, that's where table theme mods are needed , there are some available on the internet...

@Kimes: Windows' own Task Manager also does it (sort processes by names to find casino.exe faster, right-click the line describing it and go to the dropdown list Priority); personally I use a freeware process manager 'Mz CPU Accelerator' that does the same thing but automatically on its startup (i.e. a process can be added as a permanent 'exclusion').

As said, juggling CPU priorities is a dangerous trick, use it with caution.

I have a card mod I like but there new update has made the cards look weird? there more blocky with a thick black line around each card, I REALLY don't like it.

I have a horrible feeling I am stuck with this now though

iPoker

Apologies to all for asking what I'm sure has been asked a million times before but if anyone can provide an answer or link I would appreciate it.

Is the iPoker network specifically PaddyPower still allowing/condoning the use of bots of any kind . The little I have read on the subject from posts, 2012 being the most recent, say avoid any iPoker sites due to bots. Is is still going on in 2014?

ATB.

The bots are for the skill games site like gin rummy, backgammon etc. Bots are v common on these types of sites, they're declared as such, you have the choice whether to sit them. the whole thread was a big misunderstanding and has nothing to do with poker
