Opt out Button on this Double or Nothing Game

Where is it?

In the rules it says there should be one when the game opens and I'm not seeing it.

Also, not a big fan of this development.

Go to options in the top left corner of the table.

Are you saying the DONS are back on WPN? I'm at work so I cant physically log in to research.

Please advise, I loved playing DONS.

Or from the main lobby: Options --> Table options --> General --> Other Options --> Enable "Double or Nothing" on table exit

Not DON SNGs.

I'm guessing it's a feature that let's you flip (with rake) to double your winnings.

Darn. Thanks for clarifying though.

From their blog:

ACR NEWS

Check out our new Double or Nothing game now Live on ACR!

[https://www]By*Bob Garcia

May 16, 2017 1:07 pm EDT

(

Americas Cardroom

) ─

Sometimes things just don’t go our way at a cash game table, and sometimes we just get plain greedy.* Our new Double or Nothing game that was just released with our “Big Bang” software update gives you the opportunity to double your winnings at any cash game or tournament, or try and recoup your losses at a cash game table.

When you get up from your seat from a cash game or tournament, a pop-up window with the Double or Nothing game will appear.* If you choose to play, you’ll be prompted to decide whether the card we’ll turn over will be red or black out of a playing deck of 54 cards (red and black with two jokers).

If you choose correctly, you will double your profits or recoup whatever you lost in the cash game table you were playing at (provided you have the funds in your account to cover the wager).* If you choose the incorrect color or a joker, you lose.

It may not be your cup of tea and if that’s the case, you’ll be given the option to not be presented with the game ever again.

However, if you’re looking for a little gamble, this may be just the game for you!* Check it out in the poker client along with all the other features of our latest release!*

You may have to turn it on in your Table Options. It's where the spin n go stuff is at the bottom.

Re: Opt out Button on this Double or Nothing Game

Similarly, is there a way to remove the button that copies a link to share the table? Seems like poor design to have each player avatar have that button giving the same link when you can just put that in "view" or something.

Doesn't really seem like a priority to add on to the software, but whatever. It's there now and very annoyingly redundant.

It has a purpose.

The nameplate you clicked on has that player highlighted in gold in the replayer.

Also, the nameplate you clicked on will be followed in a tournament. If that player switches tables, the replayer switches to that table.

Guess this is the path poker sites are headed these days. But this is a new low and Americas card room is leading the way!

That said, it is a feature that imo will be rarely used by players. Can we consider adding an option to remove it?

Re: Opt out Button on this Double or Nothing Game

Its just pathetic. This kind of stuff make me regret all the times ive helped this network. This is unethical, scummy, greedy and only possible in a non regulated site who dont follow the rules for responsible gambling.

+1. Its really just disgusting. Hopefully no one ever plays this stupid **** but you know there will be some tilt sessions where guys just blow through lots of money.

Yep. They'll suck the money out of the eco system and then cry when nobodies playing anymore. This was not the brightest move.
