Can any regs recommend a reliable poker HUD tracker software for ignition & ACR MTTs only? Does drive HUD have any reoccurring or lingering issues? I'm at my last wits here using ICC/PT4 and looking for a change. Thanks

Is there a fix for when the lobby closes automatically and then when you log back in it says your password is incorrect? I have to restart my PC every time to get back in, pretty annoying.

Has anyone every hand bonus funds disappear/miscalculate while playing?

Poker account $0. Playing casino to clear bonus. Thought I was breaking even. Look up and I’m down $1700. Stop. Email suooort.

Looking through the casino blackjack logs today their math doesn’t add up. According to the logs I lost (165 x 50) = $8250. I won (55 x 100) = $5500. ($8250 - $5500) = -$2750

Something is really off. Anyone else have this experience before?
01-13-2022 , 05:00 PM
Actually on second count that (165 x $50) = $8250 and (55 x $50) = $2750

$8250 - $2750 = -$5500. Still the logged math does not add up correctly as Iím registered as -$1675 for the session.

Also in 200 hands there was only one case of me winning back to back hands which I know isnít true. Not sure what happened but I was down a few $hundred and ~ break even then all of a sudden down way too much.

Looking at log history time stamps there arenít any major gaps. Played pretty consistently. Multiple hands a minute. But there just arenít very many winning hands logged. So confused.

Did anyone hear anything back on this? I heard back and they said there was nothing wrong on their side (while also asking when it happened lol). Then they just keep responding that they see I've already been helped and I keep telling that I haven't.

ScoopThaPoop,

I don't know what to tell you about bonus totals so far. But if you continue playing the casino bonus, then video record everything going forward. Most computers have XBox software included and it has a video record feature. Press WINDOWS LOGO KEY+G to bring it up. Record where the bonus countdown and balance now stand and play slow enough to be able to rewatch the video and be able to count how much money was won or lost.

Also I don't know how the casino log shows blackjack, but there should be blackjacks, doubles and splits that shift how much was bet, how much was won, how much was lost and how much was pushed on a hand, therefore just multiplying by $50 on each hand sounds wrong, but like I said I don't know how the casino blackjack log works. If it is a long log maybe you could copy and paste it into a spreadsheet. Google sheets is free.

This has already happened to me and they will just tell you itís an isolated incident. Under no circumstance will they admit fault for anything. Pretty much every site I play on has mediocre customers service but ignition/bovada is the all time worst ever. Their policy of blaming customers has to be the dumbest thing Iíve ever seen though it probably does save them 100k+ per year by never admitting fault and pocketing money when issues arise. I think Iíve actually seen them admit fault twice in my lifetime of playing there and thatís when the entire site goes down and they have no choice. Even if you get lucky enough to get a refund they will tell you ďwe are making a one time exceptionĒ lol. Itís really piss poor

In the logs a loss registers as -$50 and a win registers as +$100 or $125 or +$200 depending on if it’s normal, blackjack or double downed.

I added up all the wins and got to ~$5000. My losses added up to ~$8000. The logs say I lost $~$1700 so none of the math adds up.

Its even further off since a win of $100 is really only half of that since it’s counting the initial bet placed + the win. Meaning by the actual log count I lost $5500 net, yet was only credited with a $1700 loss.

If the logs added up correctly I’d chalk it up to my not paying attention. But for them to be so far off by their own count I don’t understand what happened. There were several times I disconnected. It was an hour session. With 10 minutes left I was near even. With 5 minutes left I was suddenly down the final amount

Edit. Total losses were $8250. Total wins were $5500. Difference of -$2750. Session was registered as -$1750.

When you account that the wins are only ~half the $5500 I should have netted a loss of $4000+.

Maybe each game resisters as a "-$50" and for the games you win, you'll also see a "+$100". That would also explain the lack of apparent back-to-back wins with your interpretation.

Perhaps you also had a $1,000 casino bonus that could then account for the discrepancy between -$2,750 and -$1,750?

Yeah, this has been happening for years and shows no signs of improving. Only way to mitigate the problem is to keep the main lobby visible and check in on it regularly.

So I just won 35k and went to request a bitcoin payout and the cell was a old number I can't access anymore. Hours on live chat no response . Anyone know what I can do to get ahold of Someone?

Also matchplay isn't listed as a deposit or payout option howmcan I get it added some can get ,only off..
01-14-2022 , 04:55 PM
Tonygpoker88, congrats on the score.

Below is contact info to update your phone number. Also, don't use MatchPlay. At least two people in this thread have been scammed by the other party and had to try and claw back their money.

Well Iím an idiot. The math does check out.

154 losses x $50 = -$7700

36 wins x $100 = $3600

5 blackjack x $125 = $625

5 double down x $200 = $1000

Total wins $5225. Total losses $7700. Net -$2425

Add missing ingredient of Returned (chopped) =$750 and total net is -$1675. Math checks out.

However I did not notice I lost at a 3:1 ratio. Math > Memory.

for 3rd time in a few days, a sng disconnects and isn't visible in the lobby and doesn't pop up when restarting. The game just blinds out. And oddly I'm able to reg for a 5th sng when this happens.

I was wondering if perhaps I just was sitting out and not noticing a frozen screen for extended time, but definitely not the case. Anybody else get this? wondering if it could be a combination of their bad software and something I'm doing.

When you say you tried restarting, did you try restarting from both the downloadable client and the browser version? They truly are different animals and trying both versions has to be in your game plan when something isn't going right in the software.

Also at least in the browser version, I don't know about the client version, there is a "my tournaments" tab which narrows the lobby down to just your games. Have you clicked there and not seen a sng you were playing?

I did open up the browser version to see if I could find it, and could not. Although being new to the broswer version I didn't know there was a "my tournaments" tab. Its seriously a terrible error and haven't had this happen before. I've had games drop but they're usually visible with that little blue dot or at least the lobby comes back if i restart the client. This was entirely different and the game just seemed to disappear for me allowing me to sign up for another SNG while I blinded out (I checked hh after session when HHs were visible again and was indeed blinding out)

I got an bonus offer for a satellite ticket to the milly instead of the milly bonus. Anyone else get downgraded? Offer not actually in bonuses just in notifications.

I'm gonna start a riot on their forums soon.

Hold your horses !!!

I'm seeing the Milly scheduled for January 30th. Is that correct?

Like clockwork, two Thursdays out, I get a Milly bonus offer. Therefore, I'm not expecting any Milly bonus until Thursday January 20th.

Don't riot before Thursday January 20th.

Yes, same here. Not a good start to Ignition 2022.

Hopefully someone can help why this is happening..

I won $40k recently, cashed out $15k and it was processed in 2 hours.

I waited a week, tried to take out $15k again and it took 2 days. They cancelled my deposit and suspended my account asking for a picture of ID.

I submitted it, no response in 2 days.


Two of my other friends who play high stakes had their accounts suspended within the last 3 days as well, both being requested to submit ID.


Does this happen for a reason? Should I be concerned? I've been playing on Bovada for the past 5 years, probably taking out over $100k and never a single issue until recently.

I thought maybe it was myself only, but when my two friends mentioned it happened to them recently as well (one just won $19k as well) I'm starting to wonder if something is going on for all players?

Any help is appreciated, I have $30k in my account and am not getting much response from Bovada.


Thanks,
JM

You mean cancelled your withdrawal?

As long as you are you and have your ID you should be fine. Might take a month to verify. Have you or your friends played on the same IP recently? Or have you guys been playing the same tables frequently? Sounds like they might have linked your accounts and suspended them for suspicious activity. Or it could just be standard KYC procedure that they never got around to.

Yeah I submitted ID pretty quickly after I got the email.

A month? Wtf.

Never on the same IP. We play the same type of games ($55-$1k's) but that shouldn't be a reason to suspend us or assume anything fishy? Don't think I've been at a single FT with either of them. I'd assume its just procedure?

We all play the same "strategy" but that would be the only thing they link to us? That strategy being max late regging everything we can and really never playing outside of MLRing. Never any fishy activity or anything at all and its not like these are my bestfriends etc.. we just share wins with each other (check out my score last night type of thing).

You should be fine then. Other people have been complaining about it taking a long time to get verified recently and there have been a lot of verifications too it seems like. Read the last few pages in the thread to get an idea.
