HTML5 Beta Client News

In order to keep our beta testers updated on releases that our tech team is pushing out, I’ll be posting the latest fixes and changes that have gone out to our HTML5 beta tables as they happen.

As we continue our beta test, we’d also like to encourage testers to try out specific things while they’re at the tables. Here are a few things we’d suggest if you’re a tester playing some hands in the next few days. Please be sure to report all your thoughts via the Feedback button so it goes directly to our developers.

  • Add chips several times during a pot to see if you get the amount you expect. (Don’t forget to take note of whether you win the pot and take your win or loss into account!) Do you think the green dealer chat information is valuable?
  • Check out how easily you’re able to reload when you lose an all-in. Is it easy to determine how not to have to sit out a hand?
  • Leave a seat and sit elsewhere to get position on an opponent. Is it intuitive?
  • Make some notes on opponents. See if those notes are still there the next day, or at another beta table.

Thanks for your help!

In order to make the cards larger, the default size of the table is bigger than it currently is on our live tables.

Beta testers, could you please try sitting and playing at 3+ different tables (especially if you’re someone who currently likes to multi-table) and let us know how that feels? Are you able to manage it as normal? Does it feel unwieldy? Please report your thoughts via the “Feedback” button in the upper right.

Thanks and looking forward to your comments!

Release notes for 11/14/19:

  • Fix for invalid pre-check buttons (no longer show bet/raise when it would put you all-in)
  • Experimental fix for jitteriness with scrollbars on some browsers

Testers, please let us know if you still see the shaky tables when you test. Report via the feedback button if it happens, and let us know what was happening at the table (were you playing as normal, or was the table in the background while you were in a different window?). Thanks!

UPDATE: The shakiness fix has been temporarily rolled back as it was causing issues on some browsers. I’ll update when this goes back in.

Release notes for 11/19/19:

  • Fix to ensure folded cards continue to appear as faded when reloading the window
  • Fix for users who timeout, “Sit Out Next Hand” will become checked if they’re being sat out
  • Fix for usernames and role colors in beta table replays

We’ve had some reports of freezing from some users, but have had trouble reproducing this. If any testers could include what happened when a freeze occurred, it would help us get a fix in. For instance, did you just click into the window, did it just become your turn, did you just fold, etc.

Thank you!

A quick note to mention that reporting feedback as it happens is most helpful, since the feedback tool will automatically grab a screenshot for our devs. However, I understand that some may not want to interrupt their play. If you prefer to wait until later to report your feedback, copying the hand number where you ran into the issue and including it in your report would be a great help.

Our first beta tables have gone live to all!

These are currently called [Beta] The Duck Pond, though soon it will no longer say “Beta” and it will replace the current Duck Pond tables as players leave the Flash version.

The following beta tables are now live for all players:

  • The Duck Pond
  • Wild Territory
  • The Artificial Lake
  • The Aquarium

These will fully replace our Flash tables once existing players begin to leave those.
