There can ’t be too many of us who don’t know someone who’s a Mafia Wars addict or a Farmville fanatic, but for me Zyngapoker has always been the game that I can ’t seem to stop coming back to time and again. After almost a decade of playing it, and with over half a million hands of experience to draw upon, I’m here to answer a few of the biggest questions about Zyngapoker that players are always asking.
The infamous ‘ Zynga Programmer’ eventually had his Reddit account suspended, although his comments have been preserved in numerous archives for anyone interested in what he had to say. They issued a statement that the employee in question had been fired, and was merely attempting to damage the business of his former employers, a claim that he was quick to deny.
Another ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ Royal Flush at ZyngaPoker With no real way to determine exactly what the truth is in the myriad of conflicting claims between Zynga and their former employee, I can only draw on my own personal experience of Zyngapoker, and it does overwhelmingly suggest that the card dealing algorithm used by Zynga is not truly random in the strictest sense of the word, although the winner of any hand almost certainly is. The holy grail of poker is the royal flush, a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ hand that is so incredibly rare that many real-money players will play for decades without ever getting one.
In 2011 a British hacker named Ashley Mitchell did manage to exploit some security holes in Zynga’s code to gain 400 billion worth of chips, and then proceeded to sell newly created accounts containing nine figure sums on eBay for discount prices. Ashley was probably fairly pleased with himself after selling about 40 billion chips and gaining $87,000 (£53,000), but Zynga were less happy and prosecuted the IT professional, who eventually received a two-year prison sentence in a British court under anti-hacking laws and was ordered to pay his illegal earnings back to the company.
This ‘Black-Market’ in Zyngapoker chips is technically illegal and just by buying them you could theoretically be liable for prosecution by Zynga, although this has never happened to date. The vast majority of people this has happened to usually find that they have been IP banned by Zynga too, which in my case at least would lead to severe bouts of withdrawal.
Zyngapoker has one huge advantage over every other free, or play money poker game online, and that’s the excellent flash-player based interface that it uses. The speed and professional layout of the Zyngapoker app is second to none, and for that reason alone I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys the thrill of poker but doesn’t want to put any real money on the table.
Zyngapoker has a number of game types to suit any style of play Texas Hold’Em is probably the most popular choice for Zyngapoker players, table stakes range from 25/50 blinds where toucan only play with a maximum of 10,000 chips, all the way up to 250million/500million blinds where toucan put 100 billion on the table. Overall the shootout is a great option for newer players without a large amount of chips, it’s cheap to enter and if toucan make it to the final table, you’ll find yourself playing against the most careful of opponents.
The smallest tables, those under 1 million buy-in, usually tend to have a number of players who will risk everything within the first few hands, but the big advantage of Sit ‘N’ Go over Texas Hold’Em games is that once they’re out, they’re gone for good. This is an excellent way for more careful players to experience a serious game with determined opponents without big risk-takers constantly coming back to try their luck again and again.
Zynga also offer a number of other bonuses, chip gifts and challenges that will reward you for achieving certain goals and playing regularly. Currently, Zynga are also running a league system that rewards bigger players with larger chip gifts so even if you do end up with nothing, it’s not usually too much work to get back to the tables that you prefer to play on.
Ok me and my mates like to play poker together online, but we are having trouble all getting onto a table together using programs such as party poker, as by the time you find an empty room its full before we can all get in. So I am looking for a site that allows you to createyourown tables (pass worded is optional). I am looking for something we don't have to pay any money, as we only want to play for fun between us.
I'm sure it cost money for the sites if private play chip tables were taking up “space” when a real money table could be taking in a Rake. If you are talking a real money ring game table, I know a few people on here and online that have set up private tables at most of the sites.
Royal Vegas, Titan etc.... But I do believe it is on a regular basis also. You may want to contact the sites personally via email or online support or even call their 800 number if they have one.
I remember a site when I used to play for fun with my cousin's, and we were able to create tables very easily. Havn't played there in a long time but doesn't hurt to try.
Online Poker at: poker stars It may sound stupid, but how about arrange a weekly game at your house instead of struggling online, and by the way http://pokerstars.com always has play money tables either empty of with players just sitting out, so try there and they have a nice software too.
On the Options venue, top of the screen, Create private tables' option. I swear I've seen it on other sites too, but that was the only one I was able to find.
