Re: Unofficial Bodog/Bovada/Ignition Thread

Random question for you guys.

Just finished playing a session with a guy who didn't play a single hand, but would time down all 30 seconds every time, then fold, and seemed to never sit out after the time out. Almost like it was trying to make the money in an MTT.

this was regular 50nl tables. It was happening on 2 tables, with what I assume was the same player(anonymous tables, so cant say 100%). PT4 had over 100 hands with zeros across the board.

was it a shitty bot? some dude who wanted to tilt as many people as possible while only losing bout tree fiddy?

Your question made me consider the general question of possible cheating at Ignition.
In the old days, Poker Stars used to reimburse players when they discovered that they were cheated. I was personally reimbursed and I am sure most other regular players were compensated at one time or another.
How many posters here have ever been compensated for a cheating incident at Ignition or Bovada? I have not. Therefore, we must assume that either: 1. cheating never occurs or 2. that cheaters are not caught and their victims are not compensated.

The most easily available "public" bot was just updated so that would explain it.

I forgot to mention that it had more than 100bb on both tables. So it must have played some hands before I sat down.

So its a bot thats set to old man coffee? but doenst want to arouse suspicion so it times down every hand?

FWIW it felt automated, the timing of the folding without sitting out.

Just thought it was bizarre.

"...the timing of the folding without sitting out."

I had noticed a similar thing the other day during the weekly free roll. The player was not sitting out, but the fold was practically automatic. Quite strange. I had not thought about it again until reading your words here.

Re: Unofficial Bodog/Bovada/Ignition Thread

Im a newbie to online poker and I have two questions about ignition.

Do they accept visa/mastercard gift cards?.

And I am very confused about there welcome bonus. It says 150 percent poker bonus but im a little confused on how it's earned and also it says I get 30 days. Does this mean If I dont get 150 percent worth of bonus's the bonus's I received up until then will just be dead money in my account that I cant use?

If you do decide to deposit with gift cards make sure you hold onto them and don't lose them or toss them, they will want you to send pictures of them when you try to cash out. I would suggest using bitcoin to deposit. If you don't know how to use bitcoin it would be worth it to figure it out, trust me.

As far as the bonus goes I think you have 30 days to claim the bonus by depositing but you should have longer to clear it. And you clear it by meeting the rollover requirements which just means you have to pay many multiples of rake more than your initial deposit. The good news is is if you bust your deposit the bonus funds will be available for you to actually play with. You just won't be able to cash out until you meet the rollover requirements.

Next time if you have a question you can try the search function at the top of the thread. I was refunded a few hundred a few years ago.

Hi xxxxxx,

We have concluded that two players in a ring game that you were involved in have been colluding. As such, the amounts that you have committed to these pots have been removed and awarded to you. Please check your account balance for the said adjustment.
We are committed to providing a fun and safe place for players all over the world to enjoy poker. With that being said, we are constantly monitoring our tables as well as following up on leads from players to ensure that collusion is found and dealt with appropriately.


i got over $250

Re: Unofficial Bodog/Bovada/Ignition Thread

Ok, refunds have been paid by Ignition as compensation for cheating incidents. I didn't know how to check for that. Thanks.



"Originally Posted by H0RUS View Post

I play and mostly win at dons $5 and $10(double or nothing tourneys). I have been reluctant to play them at high limits on Ignition because there was a major cheating scandal involving this format at PokerStars years ago. PS decided that dons were too vulnerable to collusion, so it scrapped the format altogether. Collusion in this format includes, I believe, simply not calling all-ins on the bubble.

My four tables all just randomly closed in the middle of hands and it takes me back to lobby where I'm immediately able to join new tables. This software is such garbage.

I have always gotten refunds from the customer service when I have told them about this. However, they will tell you it is a hardware problem, but they will refund you.

This is concerning jackpot sit n gos and possible tourneys.

Cash games you’re out of luck, although one time I got $50 for free because it took them hours to return my $ from a cash game and I complained.

Re: Unofficial Bodog/Bovada/Ignition Thread

I posted on a hand number on their message board and they gave me a bonus 1x rollover. It was small stakes and a fitting small size bonus/refund.

I had just finished a short cash game session, and I went to start a sit n go, and I got this message! On a Saturday night?!

Re: Unofficial Bodog/Bovada/Ignition Thread

hey guys,
any tips on this one? Every 2nd-3rd orbit or so, when im up to the BB, it sits me out, like the software lags too long for me to post my blind. Have tried reinstalling the other week but no dice. Super tilting. Any ideas?

Re: Unofficial Bodog/Bovada/Ignition Thread

Anyone that is having software issues please post your issues to the Ignition or Bovada forum. There are posts about the poker client disconnecting and other bugs but not many players are commenting that they are having the same issues on their forums so the poker sites think it is an isolated thing and donít take it serious. We have to flood their forums with the software issues for them to realize itís widespread and needs to be addressed.

You're right, of course, and I have complained there. But they may not care because they have little competition.

Re: Unofficial Bodog/Bovada/Ignition Thread

in my 6 years playing on this site this is easily the laggiest and most bug ridden the software has ever been, i think if this doesnt get fixed soon we are going to see players stop playing especially at higher stakes where these bugs/lags have big consequences.

FYP.

It's not been very busy, and it was created for cashouts, but you might get some attention from fellow Canadians in that thread and maybe someone will have an answer.

Re: Unofficial Bodog/Bovada/Ignition Thread

So the 2nd coming of the Ignition $1million guarantee is quickly approaching in 2 weeks, and somehow I find myself with 2 $535 tickets after winning a couple sattelites.

Unfortunately it says the tickets expire on 10/5/20, the day of the milly mtt, so it doesnt look like we'll be able to save them if unused.

My question is: was anyone able to sell or redeem their excess tickets from the first $1million tournament a few months ago? Or did they just expire and disappear if unused for that specific tournament.....

Would be nice if they changed the expiration date to 2021, bcuz then we could perhaps use them for future milly tourneys. Otherwise, my plan is just to go apeshit with my first bullets and try to luckbox my way into a big stack.

Please let me know if anyone had any luck selling/redeeming their extra tickets the first go around or has any info that might help me out here. Ty

I remember asking if winning multiple tickets to a target tournament (in this instance it was the $1k special mtt) would result in being paid cash or not.. I was told no they will not give T$/extra tickets to other tounaments/nor cash. They may make an exception if you won 1 extra without knowing, but it's very possible you are screwed here on your other ticket.. It may be used for a re-entry I'm not sure.

I would attempt to write live chat to see what they will do.
