Paddy power advice

Hi guys,

Sorry if I've put this in the wrong section, please feel free to move him!

Right so a month ago I was playing one of the free bingo games at paddy power, there was a ticket purchase error that appeared to prevent all but 2 people buying tickets but many remained in the chat room.

Anyway turns out there is 2 players that always win and speculation they were not real players, anyway whilst in the chat room the other players were saying who the 2 players/winners would be before the game even started.

To my disbelief they were absolutely right about who the so called players would be, I screen shot what the players said before the game and screenshots of those people winning and sent a query to pp to see what they thought. Seemed a bit dodgy they were right!

So a month on I just get told it's with management and been chased up but can't give any indication of any timescales and I can't speak to a manager I just have to wait!

I feel as though they are trying to just string me along in the hopes I'll just leave it as I do think there's something a little dodgy about what I witnessed that night.

Is there anything I can do? Or should I just leave it?

Interested in your thoughts, sorry if I've not explained myself very well and please feel free to ask any questions!

Thanks
Lou

What concerns me is that there where folk investing their time and money playing bingo there despite their conviction that bots are at play stealing the winnings!
I have been a punter at PP for years for their sports betting and I considered them one of the most trustworthy of sites. But Bingo is not my thang

I'm just interested how they explain it, tbh I've always found them ok too, but was totally amazed by what I witnessed!

I'd upload the screenshot but don't think I can on mobile!

Thanks for your input though Colin

hmmmm. I used to play Bingo a lot of years ago, usually at Ladbrokes, Mecca or Betfair.

I was accused of being a bot once as I was literally winning every other game. To give an idea, these were games with 100-150+ people in, I was maxing out my cards, but so were plenty of others, and after a week I had cashed out almost £5000 from an initial £30 deposit. I even tried a few games playing a single card, and out of 5 games, won 2 houses and 1 x 2 lines. Some games I would win 1 x line, 2 x lines and the house.

Then suddenly I stopped winning, I kept playing for about a week, and out of around 100 games I didn't even get a single line.

I think I've probably played 50 games since then (and this is over 10 years ago now) as I genuinely think theres something dodgy with virtual fusion. Theres no way I should have won that many games in such a short period (and I wasn't playing 24/7, was a few hours a night) and yet see others winning game after game after game, so don't think it was a one off. I honestly don't know if they are bots or just going through a lucky week or so like I did, but I do know theres a lot of the repeat winners never speak in the chat rooms, which, at the time, seemed dodgy.

Doesn't really help with the question here, but thought I would give my views anyway :D

EDIT: What I forgot to mention is, although people think each ball is randomly picked as they show on screen, they aren't. The results are pre determined, presumably like slots. This is 100% correct as there was a bug in the software back then (no idea if its still the same) but if you went back to the main lobby and clicked refresh your balance after 1 ball had been drawn after the start, or each prize, if you were going to win the next one, your balance would update with your winnings, yet in some cases there would be another 20 balls drawn before you saw you won on screen.

Thanks for your input, these individuals are exceptionally lucky lol!

I'll be interested to hear what they say anyway!

I have noticed on free games especially on every site there is always that one person that seems to win day in day out on multiple games which in a room with up to 300 or more doesn't make sense!

I'm still living in hope my big win is out there somewhere lol!

Thanks for your comments Colinses!
