I don't know if it's the last updates or what but MG for me has been really glitchy and slow. I used to be able to keep 4 or 5 games open at once, but now it's lagging even if I have 2. The casino client sort of locks up when I go to switch a game and when I go to close the casino they'll freeze up. I've also noticed that sometimes I'll close the casino and later find there's still a casinogame.exe (or two!) running in task manager.

Has anyone else noticed anything weird in the last week or so? Seems to be all the casinos I play, and it seems like the longer I play or the more I switch games the worse it gets. Like it's storing every game change in memory or something.

Well I've binned off all my download casinos now, but I did have the same trouble, especially as you state with the program running twice or more in the task manager, and the freezing out. I also experience scratchy sound too when playing. I don't think it's a windows8 issue as it was OK for a couple of months up until about 5 weeks ago. Also had the slow play and slowly responding windows on the client menu.....

Yeah that's another thing, the sound sometimes doubles...like when you first log in and it says "Welcome to the casino" it sometimes says "Welcome to - Welcome to the casino." Also if you have too many games open at once the sound mutes itself and won't turn back on. Makes me wonder if the game sounds are being stored in memory...?

And sometimes while you're playing there a weird sort of jerk, like the window loses focus and gets it back or something loads in the background or something.

It would be nice if Microgaming took a couple months off from releasing new games and streamlined the casino download. It seems ever since they changed to the multiple window thing it's been buggy - but this last update has really made it worse. Maybe games are still downloading (again) and once it's finished it will smooth out.
