Read this review it it will help you out a lot
First thing I like solitaire and this game is pretty well done as far as gameplay goes. Here’s the advice as someone who played for a few months. 1 you must win more than 60% of your games to break even. The take away 10% of every singe match for an entry fee, you are also charged monthly fees that go up if you don’t play enough. So unless you are a savant at solitaire you won’t win any real money. I honestly don’t know how this game is rated as high as it is. There are super players on here that make it hard to win as well. I also suspect that some of the accounts are AI bots as a matter of fact I suspect that it would be very easy for a mediocre programmer to exploit this game, I mean really if AI can defeat the best chess players in the world what chance do you have at solitaire against one? Last issue I had with this game is that I didn’t play for a few days and when I logged back in it logged me into a completely new account and when I logged out and logged back in to my account I had 0.00 in my account. When last I played I had over $20 when I looked at my game history it was not accurate plus they took fees out. I hope this saves someone a few bucks waisted on this app. If you want an actual chance to win real money gambling either go to a casino or use a legitimate gambling/casino app or website as they are highly regulated. Good luck sorry for the long review
Great game, but a few suggestions!
Starting off I thought this game was a scam, losing more than I won, and a lot. Lost a lot of money, but then I realized I needed to actually learn the skill of the game and work the strategy because believe it or not, there are people who’ve mastered this and it’s called a Pro League for a reason! I knew from beginning g that staff as well played the game, but you are indeed refunded if you lose against one. I know this because it’s happened when I was a beginner. Now that I’ve gotten much better with the game I’m up in the pro leaderboards, but you are going to want to play at higher hits to move on the board and always play smart, don’t rush to the point where you are forgetting key steps/moves to completing the game.
Overall it’s a great game, not a scam, you just need to practice the skill to be able to go up against some really good players. One thing I recommend are yes, maybe some new deck set ups, without replacing old ones. Also the matching has been my biggest issue. After this last pro league, the system isn’t matching me with anyone, in any of the selected cash options which is frustrating because I want live results and I don’t want to have to wait days for it to just be refunded. That’s needs to be fixed, please!
Only good for practice
This game is fun if you play the practice rounds because it doesnt cost money, and winning helps more than losing hurts. That’s not the case when you deposit money though. When you deposit money and play the cash matches, you’re very likely to lose all of it at the end because losing hurts more than winning helps. For example, if you lose a game, and then win a game, you still lost some amount of money. The only way to make money through this game is to win majority of the games you play (which obviously is very difficult) or play and win a game with high stakes (also very difficult). Basically you have to be beast at this game if you’re looking to get some extra cash, otherwise whatever cash you deposit you’ll be likely to lose. They had a deal where you deposit $5 and they give you $10 in bonus cash. At first I was doing well, but then they took away the lowest stakes option for me and the lowest stakes became $0.60 per game (entry fee) (whereas before it was $0.25 per game). That’s when I started losing cash and i now do not have enough money in my account to play more games unless i deposit more. I would not recommend this game for the cash aspect of it unless you’re really good at solitaire. If you are going to download this, just play practice rounds.
I love playing Solitaire on this site and the potential of winning real cash. I hate the frequency of crashes I experience and even though refunds are swift, many times I get condescending advice on repair and prevention even when the steps are taken in advance to prevent them. There seems to be no responsibility for it being a flaw in their system. There could definitely be some customer service retracing.
The other day during a Bonus Cash promo, I didn’t receive mine and contacted them about it. I was taken through all sorts on totally unnecessary loops to prove I wasn’t lying, when they had every piece of evidence in their own system to readily verify the error much better than I ever could have. The promo was on their Skillz News, I was asked for pictures; my deposit and balance is readily available on the site to verify I hadn’t received it. The time of my deposit was documented to verify it being within the promo time frame. Totally unnecessary hassle that was totally avoidable and verifiable by their own system. Doesn’t promote a sense of trust or honesty and should have been comped for the hassle.
If their was some customer service retraining, this would easily be my favorite gaming web site!
The game cheats when you play for real money
I loaded $15 dollar to this game and lost every dime. It just so happens the game ha a replay feature where you can watch you game and your opponent in a side by side view and my last game played I could only get 20 points because there were no other moves I could do so when I was done the other player was still going and I was wondering how but when the game finally ended it showed the other persons points was over 1000 so naturally I went to the replay to see how the heck they got that many points from such a bad spread and their cards was totally different from mine and so before I contacted the game I watched. Few more of my games ones that I won and lost and both sets of cards were always the same except some games the feature to watch the replay is not available so that leads me to wonder if they cheated me entirely out of my $15. This game is not worth it it seems like the developers are the only ones that are winning. To play to win $1 you have to pay them $0.60 so really you are just playing for $0.40. Then when you are playing sometimes you don’t have an opponent so they match someone to you later in which they probably change the cards in some cases because you may win 2 games then you lose 4 it’s like a pattern of winning and losing so when it is all said and done you walk away with no money to cash out.
Has potential to be fun...
Don’t get me wrong, the game is addictive and competitive. I play both cash and free games. One thing I’ve noticed is where in free games I’m able to score higher. Cash games started up fair in the beginning where you would get playable hands and could score at least 1k points easily. Now I’m seeing more less playable hands where I’m scoring 20,40,60 points before I have no plays left. It’s to the point of winning one or two hands and losing 5 or 6. I’m starting to wonder if something is wrong with the schematics of dealing cards. How can you go thru a whole deck and only be able to make one or two moves? It’s almost as if it’s enough to keep you interested in playing but enough for you to slowly lose your bank roll so you’d have to reload cash. Developer, Please take a look into how the system deals hands! It could definitely use some improving on your end because there’s no way a player should end games with 20-60 points. Also it says that the more time you end game with gives you extra points. I’ve ended games with 3:50 remaining of the 5 minutes due to lack of moves and get 0-60 points for 3:50 remaining. I’ve played and ended games with 00:40 seconds remaining and got a couple hundred points extra from time. This is another issue that needs to be reviewed. Thanks.
Don’t put money in
Don’t put money in. I only did because they had a deal where you put in 30, gave you 30. However even after winning beyond all that (I lost most of it, then from games ended up winning over $60), when you withdraw it’ll take $30 away from you. It crashes a lot and when I did great it “loses” the score, and you can appeal to get your money back. They’re sneaky, though: I’ve done this and got an email saying the money was refunded and it never was. Watch carefully.
However, when you lose or have a bad game it somehow saves the score when it crashes... then they changed the minimum game price (increased the cost to enter a game) after I had put money in. Then it’s supposed to match you up randomly or to equal skills, but then it matched me up to someone I lost to several games in a row in a tournament so of course I instantly lost because the person is better than I am. Playing non-tournament games same issue: lost 6 times in a row, won 2, lost 3 more. It doesn’t set you up to even skill-level like it leads you to believe. They also have misleading titles: “$26 in prizes guaranteed” for a tournament: then when you win the whole tournament, you only get $15. You’ll lose money. So to play for free, it’s fine but crashes and has downtime where the app won’t work for hours at a time.
I’ve been playing for a couple months to determine if it’s worth spending money and it’s not. Haven’t spent a dime and I never plan to. It’s a decent game of solitaire but there are a few things wrong. They advertise that the cards in every new draw are supposed to shuffle each time, they absolutely do not shuffle. Maybe if you are lucky you have a 5-10 percent chance the cards will shuffle but the majority of the time it’s the same draw over and over making it very hard to win. I’m pretty sure that the opponents are very rarely, if ever, actual people. Maybe in the pay to play you play actual people but I wouldn’t know. If you have the money to waste it might be fun to spend a little just to try it out, but if you are on a tight budget this is not a get rich quick scheme like they advertise. Even if you are a fantastic solitaire player,, it is set up so that you cannot win. I’ve Never played an electronic game of solitaire in my life where the cards were so often the same every single time they were dealt. don’t waste your money.
I originally wrote this review a few months ago with three stars, I am now returning to give one star and delete the game. I didn’t think the shuffling could get any worse but somehow it did. I haven’t won a game in over a week. Not worth it even to have fun as a free game. There are too many better options.
This game is such a rip off. I enjoy playing this game when I’m not matched with people that are clearly better than I am. The whole point of this game is to play for money, but who wants to deposit money and lose it all in a matter of minutes? Depending on the time of day, I’ll have a hot streak of 4 - 5 wins in a row. Then all of a sudden, I’m matched with one person consecutively for the next 4-5 matches and lose all of my money. It never fails. When I deposit money, naturally they let me win the first match to get me to play another. When I do, I lose 90% of the time. I have never actually been able to cash any money out. They say they use some sort of algorithmic formula, and it’s based on skillset of two people. If I’m beat by someone 3 times in a row, what would tell anyone that we match in skillset?
Also, I reviewed a replay of a match that I lost for some odd reason. My opponent in this match clearly finished with about a minute and forty-six seconds left on the clock, and I finished with 2+ minutes on the clock. Both my opponent and myself finished with the same remaining cards on the board and the same cards in their home position. With that being said, I contacted the support through the app and waited more than 24 hours for a response and when I received my response it was nothing short of a vague almost rhetorical answer.
BEWARE- Rigged cash games - bots.
So I finally decided to download the game to see what all the hype was about. I played a few practice games and I seemed to always win weather it was playing against a computer or a human. After playing for several practice games I decided to deposit money into the account. I found it strange that once I started playing cash games, I was only facing robots with odd player names and I went from always winning to always losing when I was playing the $50,$20 and $10. The only time I won was once with the $1 game. I came close to winning in the other games by a way of a tie and then the tie breaker I conveniently was only able to score around 200 points and the robot or human with an odd user name scored over 2,000 making me lose the match. I have even entered tournaments and lost every one except for when I had $3-$5 left. As soon as I made my deposits. I would lose on every match. I am not new to online cash games, and I know when a site is rigged. This one is absolutely rigged without a doubt. BEWARE!!! This is not to say they do not have a fun game concept, but it is only good for the play points not really cash. I just don’t believe that this app isn’t rigged and that they don’t have bots playing disguised as humans with the odd player names. They got me for over $100. It was a lesson learned. Again, BEWARE
