Daily Puzzle Tickets Not Consistent
Everyday I finish the puzzle. I completed it yesterday and only got 50 tickets. Today I took longer on the puzzle and my score wasn’t higher but I got 150 tickets. Why is it inconsistent? That happens so often that by now if it’s done to many people, then the arcade owes thousands of tickets to everyone 🙂
Thanks for the info. But I never click on the ? My computer is running at proper speed and there are no updates or scans running while I’m on the games. So I have no idea what their system is doing. I never pause the puzzle so I guess there must be other things they are basing it on. Since I don’t cheat and I start the puzzle, complete it with no pausing or clicking on the ?, they need to maybe see what else their system is doing. It took me over 11 minutes today to complete the puzzle today.
Dee311, there is a "feature" of the jigsaw puzzle game that can cause you to get 50 tickets instead of what you would expect. That happens because the game has anti-cheat software built in that triggers if it thinks your computer is running too slow. This can occur if you pause the game for more than a few seconds by clicking on the "?" or if your system is overburdened because it’s running intense updates or scans in the background. So avoid clicking on the ? and don’t play the puzzle if your computer is busy doing housekeeping.
I imagine there are other reasons as well for this problem to occur (like if someone is actually cheating by slowing down their computer’s clock so that they appear to finish in less time than they really did), but this is how the Arcade Team explained it to me. Please note, no one is calling you a cheater. It’s just how the puzzle software works.
Dee make sure you don’t pause the puzzle at all. If you pause it even for a nano second, doesn’t matter whether you make the puzzle in record time or not, it will only give you 50 tickets.
So if I have to pause, (phone, potty break), I just start over.
