Hog Wild Poker is by far the shadiest subscription website out there. Why can I not find out anything about their RNG and who has certified it. Even Merge lets you see the certificate and who granted it and who certified the RNG (as shady as that is). Now, the reason I say this is, they make you purchase Hog Bucks which on the website is their money. Yet they can manipulate the RNG to pick winners and losers, so the losers have to buy more Hog Bucks and the company makes more money. If they didn't pick winners and losers people may never have purchase HB's again, they just trade them around from person to person in their "cash games". If you think I'm kidding, get on the site sit at a "cash" table and watch the miracle flops when someone has AA and gets out flopped by 42o on a 2,7,2 flop continually. Just saw it happen at one table like 5 times in a row ( bad beats that is) AKs out flopped by QTo, Q9s out turned by 44 on a Q,8,7-4-2, K8o rivered an 8 against 9To on a 9,T,K-5-8 board, AJs rivered by AQo on a A,5,J-4-Q. Time and time again, believe me I know poker and have seen bad beats galore, but this rivals merge for most obscene and blatant display of "oh well, its poker, can't dispute it, can't question it". I quess its the way the RNG has been manipulated (oops, I mean setup).Edited By: HOUNDofHELL Apr 17th, 2012 at 05:08 AM
So let the haters hate, and the sheep bah. Spend your money on a shady company, be my guest. Oh, who is going to be first to say its US legal it must be safe and fair, when "US legal" has nothing to do with the RNG and everything to do with monetary transactions.
you will see a lot of weird hands in freerolls bra. but i agree u shouldn't waste your money on subscription sites.
its US legal it must be safe and fair
So without a rigged rng everybody would be a winner?
How are we generating more play chip sales again?
I'm up like 300k hog bucks myself and it just keeps coming in. So I'm the guy they chose to win all the chips so the rest can buy more?
wait you purchase play money chips with real money?
i bought 25 bux worth ,unfortunately i reg'd for 1 mtt and it didnt pop up and i forgot about it and i got booted
things like this make it ez for a guy like me to unintentionally lose some interest ,like forgetting to reg the next day etc.
