Found this site and played a hundred games...Verdict, totally corrupt...Constantly asking me to buy chips. The hands that were dealt were obvious set-ups, even if I had a top hand. My opinion is that Zynga is totally corrupt.
Rigged 4 Betting Enticement IMPOSSIBLE Hands. Let's start with some facts...60+ years of Poker & 40+ years in computers...This game is one of the most rigged operations I have ever seen. Virtually IMPOSSIBLE hands in play. Community Full Houses, Flushes, Str8 Flushes, 4 of a Kinds, and more. Totally infested with bots, fraudulent chip sellers and many more. Scam players with totally impossible statistics...I.E. $27T in bank, biggest win of $80T and has only played 300 hands and only won 60 hands, WITH a Royal Flush as High hand!!
I'll give ONE example of just ONE of the hands I have got scammed on....AA in the hole, A2K on the flop, K on the Turn....I'm sitting on a AAAKK facing ONE!! 2, betting like a fool and this yahoo is matching and raising me...Over $2T in the pot and the river is another 2!! Go in for another TRILLION facing 2 2's with a AAAKK FH and guess what..this joker is sitting on a pair of 2's!!! THIS IS JUST ONE of HUNDREDS!! of examples of this kind of hand that I have lost TRILLIONS & TRILLIONS & TRILLIONS on!! The ONLY ONE card that can beat me just MIRACULOUSLY APPEARS!! And I've watched the exact same scenario unfold for countless other players! And these jokers just happen to pop in for 4 or 5 hands and follow the same betting pattern REPEATEDLY!!
They claim their RNG (Random Number Generator) is "fair and rated by a gaming organization"...Well...I've written RNG's in DOS/IBM360 Assembler language over 40 years ago...it's almost impossible to do properly. One thing I have observed CONSISTENTLY is the occurrence of EVEN numbered cards that always show up...2-4-6-8-10's. I have had that very combination of 2-4-6-8-10 between my hole cards and/or community cards an IMPOSSIBLY HIGH number of times...I have also observed an absolute opposite amount of occurrences of odd numbered cards...-3-5-7-9's. This gets back to the way RNG's work and why it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to build a TRUE RNG!!! This game is NOT fair!!
Their VIP scam is also a joke. I have been told to let my VIP Rep know about purchases so they can do all this miraculous service for me and don't get squat!! They say they can only "match" chip purchases and not Gold purchases....EXCUSE ME??? CASH IS CASH IS CASH!! You're selling a nebulous product that has NO intrinsic value but because I don't buy a certain category of their product, I don't get ANYTHING!!
This is possibly the biggest fraudulent game I have ever seen....and I've seen just about all of them after 40+ years....A class action lawsuit needs to be filed with INDEPENDENT reviewer's going into the nuts and bolts of their gaming code, review of all their billings, how many fake player accounts there are, how many illegal chip sellers there are, and show what a scam this is.

Ever since Zynga took over in Golf Rival online gaming has gotten so greedy with their money. The game manipulates the player right in the beginning. It's known as a "camping" game. It says nothing about that in its review. People advance so far and get frustrated at low clubs being extremely unfairly matched. So the $ you did put into it to get to higher levels is replaced with making a new account to build up your clubs in low levels. Any game you want to get to higher levels. Nowhere in its review you're told to stay at low levels and build your clubs. So the $ starts over.
Anytime in challenges or Kingdom you're always unfairly matched pushing you to purchase better balls just to barely compete. Even then it's really hard. Every single player knows ever since Zynga took over the game sees any change that's made is about generating income for them. Before they took over it was about providing fun and fairness to the player. Not anymore. Just a complete scam. Every single game Zynga takes over or makes it always fails due to their greediness of money and plays like they benefit the player too. They do some reviews and asks players what they want in the game but they're only dismissed unless it provides a huge revenue for them. The reason how I know it's how everybody thinks is by private FB sites for GR. Golf Rival has absolutely no affiliation. And separate YT videos that explains how the game will benefit the player. GR does no mention of this in hopes you spend money and do it all over again.
I have been a paying customer of Zynga for many years, playing Gin Rummy Plus. After playing for half-an-hour on 26 January 2023, I suddenly got a message that stated: "Policy Violation -- Your account has been permanently suspended for violations of the our policy." After receiving this grammatically nonsensical notification, I emailed Zynga's customer support department. They replied that "Our system detected that you've broken one or more of our game rules. Therefore you are suspended from the game."
After I asked which rule(s) I had broken, their only answer was, "Our account ban decisions are final." All of my further emails were replied with the same lack of information. I also sent in a Personal Data Request, which was ignored. Two days later, I tried opening Gin Rummy Plus again, and my account had been magically reinstated. My recommendation: Do not ever pay Zynga a penny for anything. They can arbitrarily suspend your account at any time for no discernible reason. And if you ever need customer service or answers of any kind, forget about it. Zynga is a scam company that employs incompetent know-nothings. I'd give it zero stars if I could.
After years of playing Zynga Poker, I accumulated over $225 billion in chips. I was able to do so despite the frequent bots who seemed to always know my hand and magically pull the winning card on the river. I also endured frequent harassment by ** shysters trying to sell me ill gotten chips at a discount. After all this, Zynga had the nerve to freeze my account and confiscate all my 225 billion chips, 125,000 in gold, 50,000 tickets, as well as my watch tokens that were over half way toward earning a 360 billion watch payment. They falsely claimed that I violated their terms and conditions and would not even consider the possibility that they were wrong. Case closed, they stole from me years of hard earned assets. My only recourse appears to be to point this out to others who are considering buying chips from this company so they won't be swindled like me. Shame on Zynga!!!!
I have played WWF for years. I report when a scammer tries to ask for money or gift cards. Impersonating military etc. Zynga does nothing except disable my account. A legitimate player. They enable!!!
I have been playing Gin Rummy through Facebook for 5 years. My laptop quit and I replaced it, logged into facebook, no problem. Went to play gin and had lost my chat rights for some reason (worked great for 5 years). I reported to support... What a joke they are...lol. Anyway...after waiting an inordinate amount of time for a response, I was finally instructed to make sure my account on facebook was the same account... Wow, do they pay the support people there??? Anyway after many back and forth emails I was instructed to try numerous thing, none of which helped. FINALLY, they told me they could find no record of me having typing privileges. So for me to be able to type I need to repay for the feature. It is not the money but the way they treat people is pathetic. Pitiful company.
I paid Zynga poker for playchips - some chips got stolen from account, no chips were given on many winning hands, and most hands were losing hands, therefore, no way to win chips at zynga after purchasing chips. Before purchase when I was new customer - no problems, all the problems came after I purchased chips, I made more than one purchase thinking at some point I would win chips, and all the problems persisted, clearly it's not normal to only lose chips 100 percent of the time but every time - same thing, if I won and managed to be given the winning chips - they got stolen from account after.
Zynga cheats and steals in every way is all zynga does targeting customers, too many odd things I've seen occur and it seems like I'm only playing zynga bots and zynga controlling everything like they have programmed their system, and they give false information for their leaderboard and winning amounts - I only lost chips always but zynga was showing me as winning, therefore they falsify all information.
This company bans and steals chips from its customers, and hides behind an automated customer don't care service department... It should be criminal to sell fake chips, and then steal them after the purchase with no response.
I’ve learned how to play poker on Zynga, but the game has issues, a lot of cheating, ban accounts for no reason, freezes and takes the chips, you complain and gets a standard answer. It kills the fun.
