lol@not a sore loser
the ball goes EXACTLY where you aim it...and you NEVER know when you are going to win...u might have it played out in your head..a good player will play at least 2-3 ahead...a great player(ahem ahem, sorta like myself, within 20 seconds the whole rack is played out in my head) believe it, dont believe makes no difference to me...i just get tired of hearing people whine about this and that...Also, you are correct aboit the spins, the spins are not there to make you rich...they are there to so you can snag a few extra coins for broke people, they are also there to get new players to spend some real cheese on their app...some do, some do not...i believe i am over 500 lvl at the moment, and have had the miniclip 8ball pool app for around 3-4 years without playing any in the past year(maybe get on once a month and do the free shot for the $5 cash...ive never had a ball not go where i aimed it..now every once in a great while if you hit a ball at full power into a pocket,well, it sorta acts like playing pool in real life, balls will jump out on rare occasions...also, snowbird1434 is player name and you can see if i am not telling my truth... gl to you
Fun & sometimes Rage inducing 😂
There are times where I absolutely hate the game because I keep losing to people with a higher skill level than me. The way they select your opponent is completely random, which on one note can be pretty fun. But then on another note, you got someone who is a skill level 16 (like me) playing up against a skill level 131 or even higher. (I have seen on the world leaderboard someone with a skill level of 972) Which can seem pretty unfair, but winning against them is not impossible, but it is really hard. I do like most of the concepts in the game. The fact that you can get a huge amount of cues in your collection is pretty sweet. With more cues, you have a ton of different advantages. And the general designs of some of the cues are really nice. When it comes to the games themselves, they are pretty simple, but you do have to make sure you aim correctly. Because sometimes when it seems like you have a perfect aim, it could actually go a bit lower or a bit higher than what you think, so just keep note of that. Overall it is a pretty fun game, but for those who tend to have a little gamer rage, this game can certainly get you a little mad when you get put up against someone that is super experienced.
This is a fantastic game. Been playing it for years. Have built up my coins over time, never playing for more than 100k. For a long time would only play for 1,000. Only the past few months usually playing for 20k per game. I’m an above average player and have played about 5,000 matches. I unintentionally selected a match for 2,000,000, which is quite easy to do with the interface and I’m surprised I never unintentionally did this before. The game starts and the opponent breaks. A couple stripes go in. He/she starts taking crazy shots with minimal time taken to line them up and balls are bouncing every which way. Each shot ends up with a stripe going in. The bot’s final shot with the 8 ball is the craziest with the 8 ball heading off towards the corner and then all of a sudden careening off a random ball flying around knocking it straight into the side pocket. It all happened so fast I’m not even sure if a pocket was called for the 8 ball. It was so obviously a bot I was playing, causing me to lose over half my coins. I never even got to take a shot in the match. Has been a fantastic game for years and then this utter nonsense happened. Really disappointing. Super disappointing. A bot? C’mon, guys. You just wiped out so much good will. What a shame.
I used to think that this app was a 5 star app. This week it has gone down to a 3. After this last update everything worked fine, but, now it’s very frustrating to play. I like being competitive with my friends and in the club I’m in, but, this past week, when I win a game, I will get the winning coins in my player page, but, when I go to my friends page or my club page, there are no coins...Zero and it doesn’t matter how many games I win, it still says zero. Very frustrating when you like to compete with people. I have already been kicked out of a good club because I can’t increase my coins off of zero. So, I have tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but, it is still the same way. And I live in the United States and it has me living in Canada now. There’s no way that I have found to change it back to the US. If this can’t be fixed, without me losing my level that I’m at and all my coins and money that I have, then I’m ready to delete the app and be done with it. I would hate to do that because I play it a lot and like the competition, but, if there is no competition there is no sense in playing anymore. Please try to fix this problem and I’ll change my rating back.
This WAS a good game...
I've been playing this game for a couple of years now and have really, really, liked it. Until this week. Some ppl just can't leave well enough alone. The commercial content and coin collecting aspect of it had been tolerable until the latest changes. If you want to play slot machines, and trash talk with friends, then maybe you will get some enjoyment out of it. But for the pool purist, or someone interested in actually playing an accurate computer sim of the game, keep looking. This game is now catered to the kids... A pool stick that you have to continually pay credits to recharge? Ridiculous. So sad to see the end of my favorite ipad game... Hey guys at Miniclip, how about reinvesting in making the game actually better? Instead you're just constantly inventing different ways to get another few dollars out of everyone. Also, it's a little fishy how out of my thousands of daily spins, I seem to land on $100 about 80% of the time... and, I don't EVER recall winning anything other than a thousand bucks or so on a "Scratcher." I wouldn't play these at all if I weren't forced to, so if you're going to force ppl to play, you could at least make it fair. Oh, and enough with the bazillion different pool sticks! Geeeez!
Cheats you of time & money
Although this game can be enjoyable when working properly, it often has what it labels as “connection slow” issues. If you tap on a profile during this event, you will see the message “updating.” When this happens and it finishes its update, you could potentially be losing time leaving you no time to aim and shoot causing you to lose your turn. This has often caused players to lose the game & money if you pay for any additional coins. It makes it appear that your connection is slow but in reality the games’ network is overburdened. This is happening more frequently than when I first started playing. There are other minor issues which aren’t worth mentioning. But the so called “slow connection” issue is the worst and why I keep rating it with 3 stars. UPDATE: After reading some other reviews, I agree that there are bots especially when chat comments like Never Give Up are used when it makes no sense. I agree with seems that most players are in countries other than my own and skill levels not matched. I agree that it cheats you out of money and algorithyms used seem to cause you to lose. There seems to be lack of support but increase in glitches. What I don’t get is why it’s still labeled as the Editor’s Choice. Therefore I’m downgrading the rating to 2 stars.
Pop-up invites cannot be turned off.
I enjoy the game; I’m only giving it 3/5 stars because while you play there are unending pop ups over your ball holder that distract and prevent you from seeing 1)when it’s your turn or 2)your rack of balls. You can decline but immediately another pops up. I cannot turn them off. While your playing a game how can you stop and accept another player’s invite. These invites are SO ANNOYING and DISTRACTING. The invites should NOT keep Popping up (from the same player) while I am playing a game already. Between games, I can look at invites if I CHOOSE! I should be able to play a game without the CONTINUOUS AGGRAVATION and DISTRACTIONS... especially from same person over and over and over and over. So flipping annoying. I’m thinking about deleting! It STOLE 300,000 coins from me. I was scrolling left get to more affordable venues (London, Sydney, Moscow) for some reason I was entering Jakarta. I tried to cancel immediately. It stole my coins. A few days later, I had my phone in my pocket. When I took it out to check time, I was "playing "( again in a high stakes venue)even though I hadn't chosen to play. Lost 200,000 coins. There is no way to correct/stop the steal... no customer contact or customer service available. I will play in London u til I get my coins back to 603,000+.
I’ve been playing this game for a while, but after I write this review I’m deleting this app. First off why should you have to play a player 300 levels above you, you don’t stand a chance. Every time you think your doing good and might win a game, boom straight line shots that you know will go in don’t. The daily spins are rigged and will never give you more that 500 coins. Second once you get to about level 50, you never win, if you even get a shot at all the player your playing is going to win 90% of the time. All it want you to do is lose your coins so you have to buy more. I have never paid actual money for coins and never will. The clubs are so rigged it’s crazy, join a club and you will se yourself, if you don’t pay 8$ a week for pro membership you are playing against someone that plays Venice witch is 150million for a win and don’t have a chance in winning! It’s a money driven game and if you don’t pay for the membership or pay for coins it’s impossible to level up. And the rings are a joke. Now mini clip made it impossible to get any decent cues and forget about getting a legendary cue if you don’t pay you will never get one. Now you have cue trophies? And other rigged tiers you are trying to get it’s simply UNFAIR for new players.
Well it WAS great . . .
As for actual pool game goes, it’s pretty accurate except a couple odds and ends like, if you pot the 8 ball on break you really won the game — this doesn’t do that. There were a minor glitch or two here and there in the app. But not really that big of an issue that’d really interfere with your playing. Before the latest update my biggest two complaints were the fake/bot players and not having the ability to sell your pool cues that you no longer use. But now, since the latest update, on my iPhone it won’t load and on my iPad it forecloses every time I enter into a game. The only way I can play is in practice mode. As before, the ads are annoying af and as well as the constant cue upgrades on cues I NEVER USE. I do find the game a little rigged. Once you get your coins up a good bit, suddenly it hard to win games and you’re paired up with someone who’s at a greatly more level then you (for example: you’re level 22 and the person you’re playing against is at level 122). And this app hates slow connection speeds, it either won’t load or freezes up periodically during play. I hope the app developers fixes the bugs since the latest update for the iPhone and iPad. On my MacBook Pro, through Facebook’s website it’s ok, but not great.
Annoying pop ups and other scams
Have been using the app ever since it has existed. First major complaint I have is the number of pop ups on the screen. As soon as you open the app you get these ads, previous challenges, online players - everything in form of annoying pop ups. When you try to play a match, there is a quick pop up as soon as you click a city. It feels like the app is trying to force you into accidentally buying a cue or coins. And these pop ups continue to show up even if you are playing a match. Accidental clicks on these pop ups exit us from the ongoing match and we lose the bet. Another major complaint is regarding the spin, scratch and rewards in general. I don’t think the creators understand how a spinning wheel should work. The wheel is supposed to be completely random and not based on your level or VIP points. It is okay to have different ranges of rewards for different levels, but manipulating a wheel by showing higher rewards which a person will never get is unethical in every sense. In summary, I think the app is turning into a scam which is manipulating players into spending money. In my opinion, it’s not the right way to make money, just a smart strategy. I would prefer buying what I like instead of having me click on an ad and manipulating me into buying what I wouldn’t buy myself. I have given 2 stars for the functionality, table designs and for having 9 ball included.
Glitches or intentional?
I like the different game goals (rings) and the look of different tables and options it gives, but other than that I’m not impressed. One problem is it doesn’t match you with players in your “ranking or experience”. A beginner may end up with an opponent that has been classified as a pro or better, depending on how long they’ve been playing. Also too many interruptions when playing with challenger banners or wanting you to challenge your FB friends. The cue stick charges don’t last through a game if you have a bad break then you may have to recharge more than once for consistent shots and that’s in addition to placing a bet. The balls sometimes can hang half over a pocket to drop then it jolts back towards the table, but the cue can too often roll with ease for a scratch. It’s just a bit fishy when you AND your opponents ball should have dropped but jolts back from the hole. There are a few more minor issues that are annoying like not being able to type your own text for chat. I’d rather it was emojis than some of the stupid pretext messages and then you have to buy more if you want to add some. Shows a lot of greed. Plus it’s anybody’s guess as to who is going to break. If you play 5 games in a row with a different player each game you may not get to break on any of those even if you lost previously. All of this is even after purchasing the app. 🙄
I felt more of those negative thoughts
I felt it in the long run of playing 8 ball pool. First its fine ,good, enjoyable. But now in more of annoyance. Like something fishy is going on in most of the games. Like, there’s someone manipulating every aspects in the game. That someone is pulling me away from winning or losing most of my coins. Even if its obvious that im the winner. It turned upside down. Sometimes my preparation for the next balls is excellent, the table & balls moved. Sometimes i’ve potted all the balls, except the last ball. When i’ve potted the last ball and I’m the winner, suddenly the last ball came back to its place where it was before i hit it, and suddenly the opponent turned out to be hitting the ball. And frustratingly, the opponent wins. Let me clear it, I didn’t potted the cue ball. There are many more of something odds or irregularity that I am feeling while playing. Even the sequence of opponents, sometimes there is something odd. An hours ago, & even yesterday, i always bet & always 50K for double the money. Ever being irritated, so I double-tap or triple-tap the 50K coz I’m annoyed already, yet still variety of 200, 500, 5,000, & 20K are the games that being given to me. I’m catching up to bring back my losed coins while having a feeling that thats not fair. So I steadily bet for 50K. But what do I get? Who will be happy when this is happening t you. You want to play for enjoyment, but what is this!
Nothing but a money trap
Ok so I figured it out I think.. you play other players in the lower levels and lose. A lot. You only win just enough to get hooked, unless you pay big bucks, you’ll never see the higher levels. Why? Well. The game limits how far you go. How? If you miss one shot. I mean just one, the other players, (which some are the computer posing as real people) can run the whole table without you getting another shot AT ALL. Then you lose your coins and get kicked back to a lower level. The cycle repeats itself until you are scrambling to win your money back to compete in higher levels. Once you start getting close, your shots start to get off and your aim isn’t accurate (I literally screen recorded me playing and witnessed on the slow mo playback that even tho my aim was right, the computer made me miss the shot). Then you have to spend more coins to recharge your stick. They then give you spins and free coins, 100 to 300 coins a pop to keep you playing. After realizing you can’t beat the game, you go ahead and spend money to purchase more coins to play at higher levels, the cycle goes on and on until next thing you know, you’re back at no coins and either have to play at the lower stages or pay again to temporarily play at the higher ones. This game is a money trap and I’ll only play it to pass the time. But don’t expect to really win much.
Editors choice? 😂
After playing this game pretty regularly for 1-2 months this is how I feel. It’s sad that this makes editors choice. It’s a game that is annoying with how hard they try to get you to spend money. The matchmaking is rigged against you at a certain point(I’ve played players lvl 100+ as a level 28.. 😂😑🙄). Cant play certain tables or else you’ll go bankrupt and have to buy more coins. But don’t worry, there is a wheel spin that you could win up to $2,000,000 🤩😂 Ive only ever won $150-$250(probably spun it 50+ times and it’s always one of two prizes out of like 18 possibilities so that’s rigged too). I also have a gripe with having to scroll to the lower level tables every time I want to play. I have to flip past 7 higher level tables that I’ve unlocked and can’t afford to play on every time I want to play a game. It also doesn’t cost much but it costs money to even play off line by yourself. It’s really obnoxious. It’s always trying to get $5-$15! From me for pool cues and coins. Aside from all of that it all functions pretty well when you’re in a game and it can be a good time shooting pool. I’m gonna look for a better app but this might be editors choice because it’s the only decent pool game 🤷🏼♂️ it’s the only one I’ve tried so far but from what I can tell, I wouldn’t get too excited about this.
