Hey mobsters....! It seems like the riddle has died Shock I don't see it on partcasino.com. Hopefully it's just a daily glitch and the riddle will be back. I love this promotion!! Blink

I won 30 and 50 points lately, I am still over 1000 points, mostly from this....

Good luck on the tables guys

I was soooooo looking forward to playing the riddle today, eswpcially as yesterday it said I was unlucky and should try again tomorrow. If they have removed the promotion do you think I have a case for misrepresentation as I was fully expecting, on their say so, that it would be here again today to give me that other chance? Cool

Yup! The Riddle has definitely gone. It will be a sad loss and sorely missed as it was a great way of building points and bankroll through converting bonuses to real money. We will just have to find new ways of entertaining ourselves and building up those party points.

Anyone of you have received cash fro the riddle if yes just look at your account very and let me know.

I did received a total of $6.00 in cash from the riddle i thought that it was free cash like the points received but to my surprise yesterday they took $1.00 from my account because this money is a bonus that you have to release in playing casino. I still have another $5.00 that is still restricted.

Just don't look in your bonus you won't see you have to go in your account in party casino and you will see restricted amount if you have received some and did not play casino. Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!

Yes I've gotten those too, but I always opt out immediately, so as to not screw up my real money balance. I don't play casino, so I'll never clear any of it.

well sadly it seems that riddle party is over at party. fcuk em i guess, bring back the riddle dudes or else... or else we will cry and head back to fcukin jokerstars. was such a great promo- for basically 1min of your effort you had the chance to get serious points and then trade em for tickets and burn those with pocket aces vs 26o. i already miss the riddle.

Too bad "The riddle" is no more, but I've been occasionally playing the 20 point freeroll, getting a good return for the points. I just won one (1st of 342) for $46.41. It's almost 4 AM, but I had fun!

Still almost 1800 point left most of which were from the Riddle.

They are actually not great value; $250 prize pool for 342 players is only $0.73 expected value. Considering the buy-in of 20 party points, which equals $10 in rake, that's only 7.3% rakeback.
If I thought I could get to gold-status, I'd just buy $100 cash for 1500 party points, which equals 13% rakeback.

The BRM Sunday game if by far the best value at close to 100% rakeback, but as callie pointed out, I could play those every week for the next 7 years without generating any more points...

They are not great value if you had collected the points you have by playing and paying rake.

However in your case most of the points you have are coming from the riddle which did not cost anything and no rake paid.

In this case IMO it is like a freeroll and very good value. Question Question

I agree that it's a bit contrived to express those points as rakeback, considering I got most of them for free.
On the other hand, the source it came from does, not change the actual value; if I find a $100 note on the street, I can buy the same things as $100 I worked for.
I'm not sure if I agree with my own point though, as I'm more likely to spend the windfall on a present for a loved one... Irrational if you think about it.
Hmmm... I shall buy more presents to compensate... Blink

I think the point is valid, regardless of whether they were earned or won, they are still worth more value in certain other games

Am i right that if you win a freeroll it is a 100% ROI. So you can't talk about rakeback when you did pay any rake.

Your example of the $100.00 i agree that both have the same value however when you have work for the money you will take care of it more than the one you found again it is free money with the same value but the spending could be a lot different. Agree Agree

I believe I already conceded every point. So no argument there Smile

In an attempt to regain my rationality, I even found the solution to spend $100 like I found it on the street, just in case I might one day... That's rational right?

As for the ROI, it's actually infinity% (division by zero).

I think you have to look at the prizes.

If you consider this...

Would you rather play for a $250 pot with 350 players or a $200 pot with 80 players?

The value is definitely with the second.

So you are right, in that they are free and its a freeroll so a good ROI is expected.

However, there are better games you could be playing with them (or swapping them for tourney tickets in the shop)

It all depends on the value you place on partypoints. If you have earned your partypoints, then they have true value and you need to be cognisant of this in determining the outcome value. If you have won them on the riddle, or elsewhere, then they have no true value and only imaginary value (which I assume will equate to their true value), however if playing with these free points then the return on investment is far greater. The difficulty I guess is knowing whether, at any one time, you are playing with earned points or won points! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!
