I'll have to try it the way I did this morning (9AM UK time) and see what happens in the hope it will help the Devs. So, maybe, it's almost fixed but needs a last step?
Unless they just stopped me from testing by letting no scores submit


So even when you played without cheating it would not let you submit your score?
And you paid to play again and would not submit that score?

So maybe, just maybe, if one cheats they are locked out of the whole tournament?

I have had more +40s and +50s these last two days since the tournaments started again than I have EVER had before!
But now others are getting over 400000!

Yes and yes to your first 2 questions.

Problem is, the way they have "fixed" it now, if one got the glitch "accidentally" then they wouldn't be able to submit either throughout the same tourney.

I was going to say that the thing to do is....but I'm not in case the other "person" hasn't quite figured it out yet.

I really HATE having to keep trying in order to glean info which may help the Devs because it's really not doing one piece of my equipment any good at all

The devs and BF have equipment. Let's them abuse theirs. You've given them info to at least point them in the right direction.

Either they care, or they don't. It's their reputation on the line. If they choose to ignore it for the sake of selling some diamonds to people who don't know or don't care about the cheating going on, oh well. It's going to be their rear end that gets bit in the future if online gambling is in their big picture.

jr, just thought I'd poke my big fat nose in. It isn't 125,000 + 50...it's 125,000 + 50% so it's actually 125,00 + 62,500 = 187,500 for the first +50% spin like TiramaSue said. Then it's 187,500 + 50% of 187,500 and so on.

Your math is wrong.

125,000 base
187,500 after 1st +50 spin
281,250 after 2nd +50 spin
421, 875 after 3rd +50 spin
632,812.5 after 4th +50 spin

by this point, I would be hyperventilating and would not risk a 5th spin.




then what is all the fuss about? if you are right...then why are people saying these scores can not be possible....I have been reading people complaining about how those high scores are not possible and people are cheating? where are you seeing the cheat at....125.000 + 50 is 175,000..and so on


My math is correct

50% of 125,000 is 62,500. 125,000+62,500 is 187,500.
50% of 187,500 is 93,750. 187,500+93,750 is 281,250
etc, etc

The cheating involves utilizing a glitch to post the same score in a subsequent tournament. That was happening so the tournaments were stopped. They resumed but Fudge Chi's testing revealed that the glitch is still there.

Unless I've misunderstood, apparently it's also possible to start with that old score and have the scores you receive for playing the tournament hidden object scenes added to that old score and then submitted.

Spot on, TiramaSue They have stopped the same score being able to be submitted but NOT an old score from being able to be added onto. I'm a bit hazy having only tried it twice. I'll hopefully know more in 2 tournies time (sleeping in the next one).
Jr, it's not a fuss, the scores ARE obtainable BUT there IS a glitch to utilize. I KNOW and have proven it. At this moment in time, I sincerely wish I hadn't as it's causing so much aggro! But, I have and want fair play!
Yep, the Devs can abuse their "equipment" after my tomorrow. After that, mine will stay on I'll have done all I can.
It is the new owners reputation on the line.

Regarding Tournaments - July 22, 2015

[Post New]by bfgWaimea on Jul 22, 15 1:49 PM
Hi Everyone,

Regrettably, tournaments for all platforms will be temporarily disabled as of Midnight PDT. Our team is working steadily towards a permanent fix for the issues surrounding the tournaments. We want nothing more than to be able to provide this feature, but as you can see this process does take some time.

We appreciate your patience and thank you all for sticking with the game. As always, the Forum Moderation Team will update this thread as soon as we have any additional news.

And if this game can be exploited by cheaters, might not the same technique be used in other games, such as Big Fish Casino?

Even if BF/CD don't care about cheating is this game, they should be very concerned about it spreading to their bread-and-butter game.

No worries from me....I read your lines and took your gist from the git...the time involved in the Dev's seeing the problem was and as before been an issue...even from way back.....the believing of them of our experiences took time for them to get on board......once they saw the issues....then they took charge.....once they took charge then there was time in wait to see the finer details of the issues.....then the shut down restart and shut down...and restart and now the shut down again to get the last tweek of the issues fixed.....hopefully for the last time.....or not we shall surely see..... **D** out

I hope they/the Devs don't tweek the PPD's/Roids out of the wheel....I like playn' all juiced up.......and seeing the 50% sucked up under a 40+ 40+ 50+...and a 10+ for kickers..........all day long.........every time and more more more.....NOT **D** out
