2nd time this has happened to me at Lucky Red. Payout issues to go along with it if you ever win that is. Be very careful playing at any of their casinos now

I've played at CW a lot and this has never happened to me?:what::what:

I don't think I've ever seen fun mode at CW either as I never use it.

Do you use fun mode a lot when you run out of funds? Is it possible you have logged in to fun mode by accident?:confused:

Just seems odd that they would go to the trouble of singling you out and 'messing' with you by switching you back and forth from 'fun' to 'real' mode!:rolleyes:

They must have a lot of time on their hands is all i could say about it if it were indeed happening(unlikely!:rolleyes:)

Cheers

There is a fun mode. I have tried a few games on it, but they continuously automatically disconnect you after a while.

You often get the message, 'You have been disconnected by an Administrator'... Hmmm??:what:

When I was new to online gambling I played at Cirrus. It happened all the time there when playing with a free chip. It would always say 'Your session has been disconnected by an administrator'. :what:
There were also jerky reels that just spun funny(hard to explain but it definately happened!)

After I learned that Cirrus was rogue(Thanks CM!:thumbsup:) I assumed to myself that it was them booting me off if I ever won a little something as that is when it seemed to happened! Only played there a few Weeks before I found CM and subsequently some sense!

Point being that it happened in real play mode for me.... Albeit with a free chip though!

I would never get disconnected playing in real... but then again, I have never won at ClubWorld.. :)

The disconnection is not down to a server issue... it is quite obvious you are deliberately being disconnected...

What does their rep or CS say about this issue?

I would say it is nonsense :) why would we mysteriously change your session to Fun Money after a win? There is just no reason to do so! The only way to get into Fun Mode is to logout of the casino and then log back in having selected ‘Play for Fun’ on the log in screen.

If you are playing for Fun Money you will get automatically disconnected after 30mins by a job that runs on the server - the message that pops up is the ‘disconnected by administrator’. The only reason we do this is that we have a huge number of players using the fun money mode and many of them leave their sessions open indefinitely. This affects the performance of our servers / bandwidth etc. and causes slowness for the real money players.

If you are logged out of Fun Mode there are no restrictions on simply logging back in, and of course you will not be automatically disconnected if you are playing for Real Money.

Tom

I dont believe its true either. However, I would not describe it as nonsense. Glitches are possible for every software and I had found some myself at RTG, Playtech and Rival. Dave was only relating his experiences to us and if what he says has a grain of truth we should be vigilant in case it happens to us. I agree its highly improbable but not impossible by any means.

There is something going on. I have had that message disconnected by administrator when playing in real mode about a month ago. Did it twice when I was playing. I was doing well on VP then got that twice.

Why I was I being disconnected ? Makes no sense. If its a glitch, should look into it.

I have never had a switch from real mode to fun mode happen while playing, winning or losing.

Every now and then I do get kicked off - not as often at CW as I do at Lucky Club. However, I have found that the slower my internet connection, the more often it would happen. When I was using an internet card for connection it happened alot at Lucky Club. Now that I am on DSL thru my phone company, doesn't happen at all. Point being, might be your internet connection not the casino.

By the Way

I DO NOT play in FUN MODE!!!! I was NOT in FUN MODE, I asked her about the servers but I thought it was EXTREMELY STRANGE for my REAL BALANCE to say FUN BALANCE, after a win just like davboz said. Believe what you want until it happens to you!:eek:

You don't have to yell. :D

I just stated that it has never happened to me. Am playing right now and have been for an hour or so today and not a glitch. I have played for hours, 8 hrs at a go, and never had a problem.

So who knows.

Tom,

I made two deposits yesterday and on my second one while backing out from one slot game to the lobby, my account was clearly in fun mode but when I go back into another slot my real money balance is clear as day. I don't play in fun mode. Another poster brought it up as well last week. I will search for the thread and post a link.

oh there he is. doesn't do any good to take a screenshot. i thought about that. It would just be a screen shot of the lobby fun mode with a balance. what would it prove?

Tom where have you been?

My post on this issue brought you out of the woodwork? Never saw you post once the last 6 weeks after the industry shakeup and during the whole payment processing debacle. Anyway, I'm not kidding about the glitch. It's probably just that, a glitch.

Dear Members.

Let us be more constructive when other members post about some problems here at Casinomeister.
When a member posts about a problem they want to discuss, and the goal is advice or solution of the problem then some members here answer that " I have got paid in time" " I have beeing treated good " "I haven't experienced that", and that is meaning what? That the person with the problem is lying? stupid? Posting nonsense.

Let us take our fellow members posts seriously. More sympathy for the poster, please.

Regards

L'arsenne
