The daily puzzle has gone wonky
I played with daily puzzle and finished it in about 6 minutes and 30 seconds and scored enough points for a 200 point score, I got that and a bonus 400, then 10 minutes later I played the puzzle and finished it in 5 minutes and 30 seconds and got a score that should have equaled 200 points, but I only scored 50 points with a bonuse 100. What is up with that? And I played the spin and win early this week and noticed it was impossible for anyone to score a bonus 500 tickets because that sign only appeared in two of the three colums. What is up with that? It’s pretty mean spirited on HSN’s part, points don’t cost them anything. The arcade is losing it’s appeal.
I guess I will wait til it is fixed.:catindifferent:
craftywoman, We’ve been told by the Arcade Team a long time ago that the puzzle has a built in feature to detect whether a computer is running at a slower speed than normal. This can happen when you pause the puzzle for too long or have downloads happening. I suspect it’s also caused at times by an overload on the server. When it detects any “suspicious” activity, it only awards 50 tickets. With double tickets on the puzzle, it’s probably getting enough activity to occasionally overload the server if you’re not experiencing any other slowdowns in your computer.
The wheel on Spin2Win is a virtual wheel and not a mechanical wheel like you see in the Casinos. I and others who have reported in the forums have had cases where ticket icons we never saw spinning have actually come up when the wheel stopped, so just because you don’t see them doesn’t mean you won’t ever have them come up.
