Seriously?  The Bingo cards are way too small now.  I have to sit directly in front of the t.v. to see the numbers.  Let us decide what size the cards should be.  Not everyone has the same eyesight....  GRRRRR

Is the Witches Hat and the spooky Exit Effect for Halloween a limited time item?

Good point.  We'll see what we can do about it.

Great.. now I can't even join the casino.  I tried logging in but it says I have to install the update.  But the update isn't installing for some reason.  It's just sitting there at 10% saying waiting to prepare to install.

You may need to completely power down your PS4 if the system is not installing the patch correctly. That part is a little out of our hands, but traditionally it will ensure you have enough space to download and install the update during the 'preparing' phase. Let us know if you're still having issues.

Thank you for the new personal space. In my opinion Four Kings Casino is going in the right direction according to my own interests. I am sure the die hard fan of Casino games migh be upset by such developments but you can never please everyone.
The price of the personal space might be considered a bit too high for the moment but nobody is forced to buy it and the price will probably adjust with time according to offer and demand.
I'm wondering about the odds at the fountrain game as after throwing 50 coins I gave up. I should have gone up to 100 eventually, but what is the prize and is it worth the price and effort ? Hope to have more luck at my next attempt.

Press the option button on your DualShock 4 controller. Select the Option page from the top. Select the Trophy symbol, and you will see a list of rewards for each game or activity. This is only one of 12 rewards for the lucky fountain.

Finally got the update.  It took over 24 hours to download it for some reason.  I know a big problem is the internet in my area is very slow.  I cant boost it unless I decided to spend thousands of dollars to have my own server room.  Not planning on doing that.

Speaking of which, I still haven't gotten my chip refunds due to network disconnection errors. 

Nor can I figure out why I can go in War in the VIP room for 40 straight hands and not win a single round.  I have a video of it as well.  Losing 400,000 chips like that is not a thing to be happy about.

I like the idea of the lucky fountain, but the current prize (I love 4 Kings t-shirt), wasn't that appealing.  It took quite a few of my casino friends about 200 chips.  For me it took about 4,000 chips.  ughh..  Hopefully next month will be something a little more interesting.

When it comes to Bingo, I like how its all organized now so you can see chat, the board, how many players, the score cards, the upcoming progressive game and how we can change our dabber colors.   But I will have to admit, I don't care for how small the bingo cards are now.  Just like others have said, unless you get within 2 feet of the tv screen, its hard to read the stuff on there.  Maybe the teenagers that play in here can read it, but us older gamers have a tougher time with it.

The Oceanview Resort looks nice and all, but I don't think its worth $14.99.  If it was $4.99 than I'd be more inclined to purchase it.  Just saying..  $5 to you guys is more than $0 from me.  Space Station is only worth about $4 to me.  Add the two together, I'd pay $9 for both.  That's 9 dollars more than nothing.

The update is kind of cool....But what is with the text chat being right in the middle of the screen? It makes it hard to play, almost like it's claustrophobic... I was in the middle of a poker game went to press L3 to make it go away, and then it just kept popping up in the middle of my screen and when I finally got rid of it, the little cursor for the touch pad was stuck and I couldn't do anything. I had to completely get out of game to make it go away. Was really a waste of chips.  The bingo set up is cool...But why would you make it so tiny?! It's really hard to play bingo with it being that small. But I must say I like the dark tint texture to the rooms.  It there any way to make the bingo cards bigger? And put the text chat over more to the side like it was before? Would be great.

There is an option to adjust the UI margins in the settings.  It's possible that yours is set to move the UI inwards.

Another thing I wanted to comment on was the new items in the store.  There is a new Witches Hat for females but nothing for males.  May I ask why?

Yay, that's good! ^^ I was wondering why the guys never did get a warlock hat either.

I'll be looking forward to grabbing it. wink

If it's logging on and getting a reward on Halloween day, I hope that you can extend the date. Me and Carla Birch won't be here on Halloween on time, and I'm sure some of us players are going out already for candy and haunted housing. lol tongue

Otherwise, you can do the same thing like you guys did last Christmas, which was after the event, you have the limited rewards for sale under RP. I always did like that idea, especially those that missed it.
