    I HAVE BEEN PLAYING MULTIHAND POKER ON THE USA CASINO; PRINCIPALLY 4-HAND JACKS OR BETTER AND DEUCES WILD. WHEN YOU WIN, YOU ARE GIVEN THE OPTION OF DOUBLING YOUR BET OR DOUBLING FOR1/2 YOUR BET. WHEEN I HAVE CHOSEN THE 1/2 BET OPTION, IF I WIN, I AM NOT CREDITED FOR THE AMOUNT OF MY WINNINGS + 50%, BUT ACTUALLY HAVE $.01 DEDUCTED FROM MY WINNINGS, AND FROM MY ACCOUNT. IF I DOUBLE, THE WINNINGS ARE CORRECTLY CREDITED. I CALLED THE CASINO, AND ASKED TO TALK TO A MANAGER, AND WAS TOLD I WAS TALKING TO A SUPERVISOR. AFTER SOME HEATED DISCUSSION, SHE EXPLAINED TO ME THAT IF I PLACED A $50 BET WITH THE CASINO, AND WON, I WOULD ONLY RECEIVE $50 BACK, NOT $50 + MY $50 BET AMOUNT. NOW I KNOW WHY I CANT WIN.

    Push your caps lock button once and your posts will be much more readable! My eyeballs are bleeding! :eek:

    I don't understand what you are talking about. Can you provide screen shots and/or detailed description about how your account balance change with each "action"?

    I've never had any problems with doubled or half-doubled wins not being credited correctly at playtech. You are aware that the winnings from a double are not added to your balance until you hit "collect"?

    I really feel sorry for the poor CS supervisor if you talk anything like you type..

    You don't understand how half-doubling works. When you half-double, you will immediately receive a credit to your balance equal to half the amount of your current win. The remaining half will be doubled - if you lose, it disappears, if you win, you can either collect, double or double half again.

    For example:
    Current balance: $500
    Option to double: $100
    Total Balance = $600

    You double-half, Current Balance automatically increases to $550.
    If you win, you have $550 + $100 = $650. The $100 can be collected or doubled again.
    If you lose, you have $550.

    Clear now?

    The $0.01 you are talking about... if you try to half-double a win of e.g. $0.25, it will not try to double $0.125 since $0.01 is the smallest unit. It will credit $0.13 to your account and $0.12 will be put at stake for the double. If you win, you can collect another $0.24 (not $0.25 since only $0.12 was doubled). Is this the "lost $0.01" you are talking about?

    I CAN READ, I JUST CAN'T TYPE

    i KNOW HOW DOUBLING FOR 50% IS SUPPOSED TO WORK, BUT AT THIS CASINO IT DOESN'T. WHEN YOU PUSH DOUBLE FOR 50%, THERE IS NOT A BALANCE CHANGE. WHEN, AND IF, YOU WIN, YOU COME BACK TO YOUR ORIGINAL BALANCE. IF YOU LOOK AT THE HISTORY REPORT, IT WILL SHOW A 50% WIN, BUT THE REPORT DOES NOT SHOW A HISTORY OF YOUR ACCOUNT BALANCE TO DEFINE WHAT IS HAPPENING.YOU ARE CORRECT THAT THE REASON I ACTUALLY LOST $.01 WAS ROUNDING DOWN OF !/2 CENT INCREMENTS. I ONLY MADE THE COMMENT BECAUSE IT INDICATES THAT I WAS PAYING ATTENTION TO MY BALANCE BEFORE AND AFTER THE TRANSACTION.

    Prove it with some screen shot evidence. I don't quite believe you and the way you write doesn't make a very credible impression.
    STOP WRITING IN CAPS LOCK!!!!

    I have no interest in going back to this casino to prove to you that my observations are correct. Somehow I get the feeling that no matter what evidence I presented, you would find something wrong with it. Why don't you go play and find out for yourself.

    My intent in participating in this forum was to provide cautionary information to others, not to subject myself to harrasment because i choose to use CAPS LOCK

    If you are claiming that a playtech casino is stealing money out of your account in a way noone has ever encountered before, you should be prepared to back up your accusations with evidence. Especially since you write in such a way that it looks like you have no clue what you are talking about. When RTG screw up with the split issue, there were a lot of people reporting the error, even though that error was a bit harder to spot than what you claim is happening. I have played at USA and other playtech casinos and half-doubled many times without problems.

    If you have no interest in showing us what you are talking about you should just get lost and this thread be shredded. And don't you realise that if you prove this happens on your account, you will be refunded all the money that they rightfully owe you, just like all the victims of the RTG error got refunded. There you got A LOT of incentive to go back and play to prove that your observations are correct.

    And finally, writing in CAPS is harassing the board, not the other way around. If you go into a store and start screaming at a sales person, he/she will probably tell you to calm down or he/she will call security, who is harassing who in this case?

    I just like to make a note about people witting in CAPS
    I take care of the Young and Old that can't see as good and the person that writes this way may have the same issue and as a person that does this makes them feel better to see and to write.But if the person that does this is normal they do this for attention. I would say never joke about this and jump and scream at them to push the CAPLOCK off we don't know what the story is. I would send a note myself first. before you beat a handicap down if that's the case
    PS and please I hate anything that is said about the handicap that's a heart break issue with me I had to throw my 2 cents in because I see this each day helping them in today's everyday living. We don't know who's behind the keyboard.
    Oh by the way I teach this 29 year old that loves to type with CAPS he has 3 fingers only and 20/100 vision with glasses
    I'm sorry I had to get this off my chest we just don't know the facts

    It's not the caps lock that makes him look clueless, it's the way he writes.

    The only real complaint about errors on his account i can read in his first post is:
    "IF I WIN, I AM NOT CREDITED FOR THE AMOUNT OF MY WINNINGS + 50%, BUT ACTUALLY HAVE $.01 DEDUCTED FROM MY WINNINGS, AND FROM MY ACCOUNT"

    then, in the next post he states:
    "YOU ARE CORRECT THAT THE REASON I ACTUALLY LOST $.01 WAS ROUNDING DOWN OF !/2 CENT INCREMENTS. I ONLY MADE THE COMMENT BECAUSE IT INDICATES THAT I WAS PAYING ATTENTION TO MY BALANCE BEFORE AND AFTER THE TRANSACTION."

    So, the only thing he is complaining about is something he knew wasn't wrong, just to indicate that he was paying attention?
    Doesn't make the slightest bit of sense.

    If you have a handicap, there are many ways to configure windows to be more user friendly, see Control panel -> Accessibility Options, and you can use larger fonts, lower resolution on your monitor or whatever. Using CAPS, i.e. SCREAMING, is very bad etiquette, just like screaming is bad behaviour IRL.

    If he doesn't show us what he is talking about with some screenshots, I will assume that this is just a bunch of BS.
