playtech - very poor lobby quality
« on: January 31, 2012, 10:48:57 AM »
Hey guys

i just needed to share my recently growing frustration with this software. I wonder how can a manufacturer that made all those quality Marvel slots have such a crappy and buggy lobby.

First of all it takes ages for the lobby to update (on occasion it can last even 3-4 minutes), than today i wanted to try Fishing With Buddies slot. I clicked on the slot and in that point there was only one in the lobby and download started. After download finished there were 2 of those, one is 0,20 bet and the other is $1 bet per line. But ok, many manufacturers already presented such a solution so lets say its ok, but when i cliked on $1 bet one, lobby crashed. I relogged, and what do i see, 4 Fishing With Buddies slots, two 0,20 line bet ones that are completely the same and also same fore $1 line bet ones. I then relogged again and everything is back to normal :D

Since this happened roughly the same at 3 different casinos, i dont have a doubt they have a faulty software. Has anyone experienced the same so far?

I've always thought that the quality of the lobbies at Playtech casinos were a bit on the cheap side which is not representative of their games. I can't say I've experienced anything as bad as you have but it doesn't surprise me. I was at Grand Duke Casino today and it was ok but then again I don't play at Playtech casinos that often. I can't seem to win much there.

I've not experienced this either drtheolen.  I play at Omni Casino and so far (touch wood) have not had any problems with the lobby.

i had the same problem as drtheolen today - when I tried to play Fishing with buddies (a 20-payline slot), it showed me four options (two for 1c per line bet, and two for 5c per line bet), only in my case the software even miscalculated the total bet amount, so for the 5c per line option it said the total bet amounted to $0.80 (when it should clearly be $1). So I concluded it's gotta be some sort of a bug - perhaps we should let them know about it... :/

After I read what you wrote CatFace I decided to have a look.  Lo and behold I have 4 x 20c, 4 x $1, 1 x 60c, 1 x $2 and 1 x $5 but I don't see the same problem with the bet that you had.

I guess that as it is a multiplayer game, they have extra in case more than 5 people want to play it?

Yeah, I also think it depends on which casino you try it at - I tried it at Windows Casino, and then at Omni Casino, and both had a different type of bug with the game... Only in case of Omni, the game was unavailable at the time. Not sure what happened there, but I guess they'll sort it out soon - it's a really nice game, so it'd be a pity if it was spoiled with tech glitches.

Now that i think about what blueday said it makes some sense, it seems that slot acts as some kind of room where 5 ppl can play and than if there are more than 5 ppl you see another slot in the lobby. But even if this was the case its still unbelievably cheap solution, Microgaming also has multiplayer slots for example and you dont see 4 same slots there (what would happen if there were, lets say, 200 ppl playing it :D)

Also, if i may add, design of their lobbies is very nice and informative but poor programing and glitches are spoiling it.
