Ha. I'd like to circulate that as a memo to my coworkers, who get annoyed when I start to turn everything into a graph or formula.

For pedantry's sake, I'll note that I used the word "something" in those guesses.

A 3-6 railbird said UP was planning a promo in which the winner of the millionth hand gets a new car. Confirm/Deny?

NP. Still would like to hear a response from my post a few minutes ago about players in the same house playing in the tournaments. Thanks.

This whole thread is serving to remind me why I opted to wait for version 2 of the iPad-mini.


Guinea pigs are great. I just don't want to be one of 'em.

That, and the whole Verizon hasn't approved UP thing - which honestly is something UP *should* have foreseen and addressed directly with Verizon many moons ago.

As Dax himself has said here, Verizon has not approved UP. That clearly infers that had UP recognized the issue months ago and addressed it with Verizon, we shouldn't be having this particular discussion.

PLEASE..just move up to Canada and multi table away at pokers and FT.
Its obvious you have no intention of ever playing at UP. You are just trolling.
no one here cares if you ever play at UP or not.
the other couple hundred who would answer the same thing are PLAYING there right now, having a great time. THEY are my credibility.

Please block 3ozBacardi if you are viewing this thread for tech support about UP.

He saw monsters under his bed at a very young age and is now clogging up the thread with lots of questions about who owns UP....even after getting reasonable answers.

This site is regulated by the NGC....and is operating on US soil legally with physically real money cashouts available...that would be enough for me if I were in NV.

Well gee, I didn't realize this was a tech support thread. See, I thought it was about all things UP. My bad I suppose

I don't quite understand why y'all are so pissy about me askin some questions

Yes, yes it is.

If you notice the bulk of the questions on here are about

getting verified
logging in
availability of games
cashing out
etc...etc

Google is your friend. If you think the site is a scam...you have options.

You can play on several networks that are based out of the country with postage stamp Licensing...no knowledge of if your money is segregated or safe...etc..etc

I would think being able to go to a cashier cage within 72 hours max and pick up your money in real american dollars would be proof of availability of your funds and fairly safe..but that's just me.

Again, I really appreciate that work you're doing! Don't go too out of your way for us though, or we're going to have to start paying you.
Just for the record, in my case, my IP geolocates 15 miles away (also in Nevada, near Fremont street). My phones (one AT&T and one T-mobile, LTE is off ) both LBS right here where I am (Henderson), within 5 seconds tops, using the demo link that is provided in the FAQ. However, my success rate is zero. I just tried 5 times just now again, just to add more 'statistics'. I do hope you someday get it figured out. Hate having to miss the tourney though.

In my case I wonder (hope?) it is simply the case that my location is being serviced by Verizon towers and the issue is Verizon related, even though I don't use Verizon service. So I will check again when(if?) Verizon allows you to use their LBS.

Sold out at all but 2 Targets on their website so I assume it suddenly became a popular product due to the FAQ. It works fine at my house near Red Rock.

3) Can LHE HUSNGs get added?

4) If at all possible, get on Red Rock about the number of cashiers at peak hours. There were two non VIP/chips last night at 10pm and there were 20-25 people in line, many of which wanting to deposit into UP, the rest were cashing paychecks which take a long time. UP players were waiting 20-30 minutes to deposit while 6 cashier windows were closed on a Friday night.
They will be added next week, what stakes did you have in mind?

I ask because I imagine that, if the site accrues a significant player base, that having a captcha pop up over one specific table while 24-tabling would be a nightmare.


Also, regarding anonymous players: Please, no.

It's much better for the games to be able to say, "Oh, I see this 6max SNG has 5 regs at it, whom I recognize, better not sit at it.", I also imagine anonymous players would be extremely bad for heads up SNGs..
Been reading this thread and it is very exciting. While I have read many silly posts itt I finally had to stop and laugh at this one.

It is like knowing why they want to do something but telling them not to do it because you want the complete opposite to happen.

If you just did it once I would not have bothered but you went 2-for-2 in missing the boat by a massive margin.

Hi Dax,

I want to thank you for how much you have contributed to this thread. Your involvement is likely what caused me to deposit yesterday and start playing. I have been 5 tabling on my laptop and I played a session yesterday and today. Unfortunately, today during my session, I had this issue happen to me as well. The client simply vanished into thin air. Things could have been much worse; but lucky for me, I wasn't in the middle of any hands. Do you guys have any idea why this is happening to people and what can be done on your end or our end to fix this issue? Honestly, that combined with no DP makes it impossible to keep playing on your site for the time being.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Did you quote the wrong post there or do you just not understand my post at all?

I was asking if captchas would appear in the center of a screen and steal the focus until it is completed successfully, or if they would appear in front of an individual table.

If it pops up in front of a single table and steals the focus when the tables are stacked or cascaded, then it's not that big of a deal.

If it pops up in front of a single table and the tables are tiled, that's a bigger deal, depending on the number of tables that are up and how much of a notification the player is given.


If it doesn't steal the focus, and tables are cascaded or stacked, then that's a really big problem, because if the player fails to complete it in time, I imagine he/she is sat out and disconnected from the site.

Don't know what else in my post you could have been responding to, but if it was the bit about the anonymous players you'll have to elaborate on what the hell you're talking about..

I searched but couldnt find an answer, any idea when PLO will be available?

To the Bacardi troll...if you had half a brain you would be able to look up information in regards to Station Casinos LLC and Station Casinos Inc. They recently dissolved the corporation.

LLC: http://nvsos.gov/SOSEntitySearch/Cor...53d%253d&nt7=0

Corporation: http://nvsos.gov/SOSEntitySearch/Cor...53d%253d&nt7=0

You may as well stop posting on a poker forum if you are not willing to play on a site that is approved and regulated in the USA in Nevada. Conspiracy troll gonna conspire.

When you were connected to Fiesta Henderson's wifi (I love that property, by the way), were you about to log in? When I was there, the software wouldn't let me connect when I was on the free wifi network.
I logged into the wifi before doing anything. The software connects but log in fails to verify Nevada location. The software clearly is online though because I can still check my status and watch tables.
