I had to manually report not getting a prize after completing the vault malfunciton promo. Completed 4 diamond 120K points chests and got 0 prizes except the spit in the face 10 dls that each chest gives me. I really hope the new owners come up with something new game changing because the PS ship is going down, down, down.

Where you playing now? Considering moving my roll to another site with actual RB. Would still like to use a hud though.

Re: Stars confirms new rewards program: Chests

Is there any way to either:

- Turn off the coffins altogether;
- Have them open automatically without showing me; or
- Stopping the coffins and progress bar showing on each table?

I get one coffin per $1,500 or so in rake and its usually some combination of coins, green stuff towards the next insult, and some pointless freeroll that nobody in their right mind would waste time playing (unless your hourly income is about $0.10). It is just insulting when you open them - a huge fanfare and then splat. Also lately the coffins don't open anyway - I just get a blank screen.

So the rakeback is basically zero and I find the coffins distracting on my screen. Has anyone found any way to opt out or remove them from view?

From the table settings display or something like that you can do that.

Or it could be the best thing for breakeven cash players, because the true winners couldn't stand that grind.

Re: Stars confirms new rewards program: Chests

I'm on level 5 and it keeps resetting back to 3 of 10. To get to level 6, I need to clear 10 level 5 chests in a 28 day period? Is that right?

Not its just one chest in a rolling 28 day period. If you get one after 14 days you have 28 to clear the next again.

I've moved my volume over to gg for the time being. Not only is there rb and leaderboards but the zoom rake is less there then it is on stars. Won't be going back to stars until I climb outta the micros or they start offering proper rakeback.

Re: Stars confirms new rewards program: Chests

Well, that PS Star Rewerds system is ****. It actually punishs players for playing more.
For the gold chest the requirements were:
1st chest - 5000 points
2nd chest - 7500 points
3rd chest 13000 points.

This is ridiculous.

Re: Stars confirms new rewards program: Chests

Y’all need to quit moaning and take evasive action by moving to another site. It’s becoming embarrassing listening to little b!tches crying. Oh “grinded 30k, 1,500 stars coins” well more fool you. Degens
