I understand that Duck Poker is new so I'm just giving all BankrollMob members heads up untill Duck Poker get their act in to gear. The tournaments where you can Re-Enter only do so at own discretion because the Re-Entry DOES NOT get added to the pool. I have noticed this a few times. For example i went in a 50c entry for a $10 Daily GTD. I got knocked out late in the tournament I decided to re-enter and i noticed nowhere is states how many re-entries as well as the pool stayed the same ( 33 players $16.50 ) so i got fishy and deliberately lost and re-entered again, No change. So the $1 extra i put in the pool was kept by Duck Poker themselves. People have a look yourself and let me know if anybody has seen this, Cheers!!!

Yeah, I noticed that on unlimited re-entry tourneys. It seems that in unlimited re-buy, add-on tourneys, the prize is calculated correctly based on number of buy-ins and add-ons.
Duck is notorious for its ambiguous, misleading, and most of the time complete nonsense terms or rules. (Please refer to my thread or post for more information)

This is simply not true! Get a bit annoyed of all people moaning about DuckPoker, while it has a very good (no deposit and deposit) bonus imo.

Check the number of players and compare it with the buy-ins. If there are 16 players, of which 5 have re-entered, the number of buy-ins is 21, but there are only 16 players listed (last ranked player has rank 16). So first look, then moan.......

Please substantiate your claim with relevant screenshots. Are you certain that the total prize pool corresponds to cumulative inflows?

see below, 29 buy-ins, 23 players. And 29 x 1.50 = 43.50

Well, then, not all the applicable tourneys are affected. You got only one sample? BTW, what made you sound so defensive?

Well, I think the discussion will become more interesting if you post an example in which the pool does not increase with the number of re-entrees Smile Tongue

Agreed. Burden of proof is on Tony, he's the one making the claim. Not saying he's wrong and I'm not taking sides but it's up to Tony to provide evidence for his claim before he starts asking others for evidence.

I think the reason for the confusion here is pretty clear... In the screenshot sj provides, it says there are 29 entrants, when clearly there are only 23... so, again clearly, Duck Poker counts a buy in as 1 entrant AND a re-entry as ANOTHER entrant.

It's not very clear... but it certainly doesn't look as if they are keeping the re-entry fees for themselves.

Unfortunately, irregularities I noticed dated back prior to this thread had posted. I had no reason to save those screenshots. I presume Duck has fixed the bug sometime this week.

This issue did not have any negative impact on me since I do not play those tourneys.

Thanks for heads up , new sites always have some sort of a problem thats why i try to stick with big ones like 888 and pokerstars
but still we don't know if they are aware of this or is it just a simple mistake
anyway thank you for trying to inform us here
I am very happy to be a part of such a great community, wish you the best of luck at the tables, off the tables, behind the tables, under the tables and in your life in general.

Looks like Duck kept 2 cents (43.50 - 43.48 total payout) to themselves.
Well, that is normal, lmfao.
