Hey, what’s everyone’s thoughts on the new style spin and go on partypoker? ‘Spins overdrive’. Because I’m downright confused.

I saw a post by them along the lines ‘you talked we listened spins overdrives are here to stay’. They’ve stopped the other spin and go games they had like ‘ultra’ which was 300 starting stack. And now just have this overdrive game where you have some car animation at the start for god knows what reason coz how long is that car going to drive for if you ever hit a jackpot is beyond me.

I used to like l the little 25c games, I’d regularly hit 75c/1.25c more often than 50c minimums. The highest I’ve had since the overdrives is 72c it’s all 300 starting stack unless you hit over 5x but party seem to have people telling them they are a winner.

Am I missing something?

Partypoker might be catering to a different audience, but it's frustrating for players who liked the old format :x that car for me always miss fuel :(

I have hit a few over $2 on the new 25c games but mostly they have been 50c. I don't really mind what the starting stack is as its usually all in or fold me anyway. I like when it hits a bit higher as most players at that level play tighter even though its only an extra 50/75c and you can just bully your way into a big lead by going all in every hand. Even if you get called by say AK you still have equity with any 2 live cards.

I have played around 400 games. Buy-in ranges range from 0.25 - 5.00$. The highest I have gotten is 5.02 x buy in.

It is a joke. Period. Most are under 3.00 x buy in.

The most annoying is when you get 2.98 and still only get 300 chips as I like to actually play them rather than use them as bingo there is more play in the hyper than you would think and it’s practice with short stack play for me, and that 0.02 would give me 200 extra chips to play with. I hit a 8 times the other day and won 20’tickets on the leaderboard which again is a Joke because their equation includes the amount of winnings so if someone manages to spin 5 3x+ games and wins 4 they will score higher than someone spinning 5 x 2x and wins all 5 of them which is a joke - the winnings should have nothing to do with the leaderboard..,

I liked the old spins more! (although I don't play spins that much)

I am so glad I’m not alone on this. The whole thing from the car animation to the ridiculous denominations 2.98 etc are ridiculous and there is no way the chances to spin more than 3x are as high as they were before.

Also on a side note - anyone figured how to turn off the stupid applause when you win a hand on the App? Why is it only on the app too?

And killing the table when you get knocked out without giving you the chance to see what knocked you out? Still an issue for everyone ??
