    Poker Room *you decide if it stays or goes*

    Now that the Arcade has been installed the poker room seems to be empty. The Poker room is a feature that we pay for each month and it is silly to pay if it is not being used. Please sound off so we can decide if we keep or Can the Poker Room

    Personally, I don't use it very much, or at all actually.... So I wouldn't be too broken up over it if you guys decided to shitcan it.

    I used to play sometimes, but I was very bad at it and also found it addictive. So I wouldn't mind if it were gone. But I don't really care either way.

    I loved the Poker Room, but it was hard to find a time when there were enough players.

    I used to play but I haven't for a long time. I wouldn't be to disappointed if you got rid of it either.

    If it costs the site money, dump it.

    I have not checked, but do we have any poker games in the arcade where multiple people can sign in?

    I played a few times but there weren't many people on at the same time. Stopped playing. Don't really care now. End of report.

    That would be a great idea if it's possible to do. Once I learned how to play I really enjoyed it, but the arcade does seem to have stolen its appeal. If it isn't being used, though, it doesn't make sense to keep paying for it.

    i go in there a lot but no one else is there anymore. I liked it but it is ok if it is gone....

    it would be neat if there was some sort of poker in the arcade? even if it was texas holdem against the computer...

    or i can just go to fulltilt again more.

    Like some of the others i enjoyed the poker room but if it is not being used it seems like a bit of a waste,the money you pay for it might be spent better elsewhere so as everyone can enjoy something.So i could live without it and if the arcade feature is getting more people in it it makes sense to put that first in line for spending on.

    I don't play poker so I've never used it, but I know a lot of people enjoy it. I voted that I don't care if it stays or goes!

    Agreed, with all of the other games now I haven't see anyone in or can't find others.
    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

    I voted I don't care, but why go the expense of keeping it open for 1/2 dozen people?

    I'm just looking around for a free Poker php script, but while looking for that I have found an Arcade Script with over 1400 games, I'm not sure if you are paying a monthly fee for the arcade at the moment, but this Arcade is $3.99.

    The arcade has Flash Poker, (Not to flashy/ Crappy UI) but you may be able to add the .SWF file to your current games list once uploaded to your server.

    I'm sure it's only single player flash game, but I'm not a fan of Poker, so I'm not too sure how it works.

    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Adsense-Arcad...QQcmdZViewItem

    Demo:
    http://www.lushworld.com/games/

    Considering the Download file is Approximately 680MB you should, by right receive the .SWF files upon payment.

    Nope. The arcade isn't the issue, but paying $20.00 a month for a Poker Room that no one is using, is.

    I enjoyed it every once in a while but I felt like it reduced the amount of member usage in the chat room. Personally I like chat better than poker so it wouldnt hurt my feelings to see it go.

    We've decided to eliminate the LEF Poker Room. Thanks to everyone that replied, and voted.
