New Replay Poker - Officially Live!

We’re super excited to flick the switch and go live with new Replay Poker website for everyone.

It was a few weeks ago when we launched the beta version and since then we’ve collected heaps of great feedback from players and been busy ironing out any wrinkles. 

The new website is a big step forward for Replay Poker. We’re utilizing some of the latest web technologies* to bring the very best possible gaming experience for our players.

One of the biggest updates is the new sortable, filterable, real-time lobby which shows all ring games on a single page and lets you preview the table. Now if your friends joins a table or tournament you’ll know about it straight away! We’ve also added new features like the friends leaderboard and statistics chart on the dashboard and made improvements to existing features like messaging.

As always, we really value your feedback, so we’ve created a topic in the community support forum where you can share your likes, dislikes, issues and suggestion. Please do so!

If you’re not someone that particularly likes change then you’ll be pleased to hear that for now you can still access the old familiar website by clicking the “Back to Old Replay Poker” button at the top of every page or just by following this link: http://old.replaypoker.com

Happy New Year

This festive season has been the most fun ever!…

We kicked things off on Dec 21st with our End of the World Tours: a blow-out 50K buy-in/50K prize pool bonus.

Thankfully, we survived and celebrated in style with four Christmas Day Freerolls and a massive 20 million chip giveaway. 

Well, there’s still one pretty big party to go, so we’re super excited to announce the New Year Bounty Special tours! 

  • 2 Million Chips Prize Pool
  • 5,000 Chips Buy-In
  • 5,000 Chips Bounty* for Knocking Out a Player!

The fun is scheduled for New Year’s Day at 09:00, 14:00 and 20:00 EST (15:00, 20:00 and 02:00 CET), we hope you can make it!

We wish you every happiness, health and prosperity for 2013!

*Each time you knock out a player by winning at the showdown (and your opponent losing their last chips) you’ll win a bounty of 5,000 chips. So, if you knock out 10 players, you’ll win 50,000 chips! That’s in addition to any prizes you win from the 2 million prize pool for placing in the top 15 places.

New 10K Referral Bonus, Resizable Tables & Greyed Out, Folded Cards

We asked for your opinions on how to improve Replay Poker and you gave us some great feedback. Thanks to everyone that shared their ideas on our recent survey, we read each and every reply and there were some awesome suggestions!

The three most requested features were:

  1. Give away more free chips!

    -  You can now gain 4x as many play chips when you invite a friend to RP, from 2,500 chips to 10,000 chips! 
     
  2. Resize the table so I can play full screen

    - We managed to figure out a way to resize the poker table just by changing the size of the pop-up browser window. Try it now!

  3. Show my folded cards at the table (greyed out)

    - We’re adding this next week!

We’ve also made a change to the game chat which we think you’re going to love. Now if you scroll up in the chat to catch something you missed, it stays right where you left it and only shows you the recent chat when you scroll back down. Much better!

Don’t be the short stack at the table

Being short stacked means you have less chips than the rest of the players at the table and therefore less room to make plays.

We’ve just launched three new features on Replay Poker to help you avoid getting into this situation. We hope you like them!

1. Auto Top-Up

Now when you sit down at a table you have the option to turn on ‘Auto Top-Up’. What this means is that whenever your table stack falls below your buy-in at the table, we automatically top you up from the total chips in your account (only, of course, if you have chips available).

This way you’ll never be sat with less chips at the table than your buy-in.

image

2. Manual Top-Up

Now at any time during a ring game, you can click the box of chips at the table, where it says 'ADD CHIPS', and top-up your chips at the table:

image

Please note that you can only add chips when you’re not in play in the current hand, ie. you’ve already folded or sat out. Also, you can’t add more chips than the maximum allowed for the table. So if the buy-in is between 1000 and 1500 chips, and you had 800 chips, the maximum you could bring is 700 chips to bring your stack up to the table max: 1500.

3. More control over Auto Features

Firstly if you visit your Settings page you can set your default preference for the auto features and this applies to all the different ways of sitting at a table:

image

Secondly, in the same way you can manually add chips during play, you can now change your auto settings during play, just by clicking the box of chips at the table that says 'ADD CHIPS' and updating your preferences there.

As always we relish your feedback so please tell us what you think either here on the blog comments, or in our support forums.

Replay Poker now in Dutch!

Did you spot the new Dutch language option last week?

The only reason we didn’t announce it earlier is because we were still testing the translations and updating those that were still missing. Well, today we’ve completed that work and we’re 100% translated into Dutch! Woooot!

So, if you’re one of our many Dutch players, then you can head over now to your Settings to switch language:

image

Also, if you’re a dutch speaking visitor to Replay Poker we’ve created a special domain just for you:  http://nl.replaypoker.com.

A big thank you to our Dutch translators: PunisherGielos and Happiness, who without there help, this wouldn’t have been possible.

Our next goal is to get Replay Poker translated into French and Spanish. If you speak either of these langauges, then please do get in touch!
