The Future of Leaderboard Jackets

Now that I have finally got in the forums this is the most anxious question that I have for you guys and got no answer for in the game so maybe you can tell me what happened. To my competitive nature I thought the best thing about the four kings experience is and still is the leaderboards. Having Rare items in video games always defines its greatness inside itself. It’s what some of us grinders live for. Having those rare limited time items. The yearly leaderboard jackets with the year on them was a very special feature that was taken away from us and I just wanna know why and what the future holds. I thought that was your greatest idea! And it was taken away! Why?

Having the years on the jackets in which we grinded for those games reminded ourselves and others around when we completed those it truly was memories it’s like having old pictures saved in your phone. Now it’s like nobody know when you completed those games to get those jackets it becomes confusing and it takes memories away.

Soon most of the real legit grinders will have all of the same jacket nobody will wear them and it won’t feel rewarding anymore. By just having the year on the jacket makes a HUGE DIFFERENCE!!

The 2016,2017,2018 and 2019 leaderboard jackets are now by far the rarest items in the game. With the 2017 design by far was the best year because of the glow it has in them they stand out the most that’s what they should of all been focused around but unfortunately I did not even acknowledge leaderboards till 2018.

If you dont wanna keep creating new designs every year that’s fine but at least put the year on these latest designs going forward please! We need some kind of memories. U can keep the same designs if you wanna cater to the new players that’s fine I understand you might not want the same old players to keep winning every year but that’s what makes it super competitive trying to be the 4x big six champion or whatever it keeps us coming back and trying.

People are just gonna create new accounts and get the same jackets anyways just to keep playing it’s not really gonna keep the same people off the leaderboards in my opinion

With no year labeled on these leaderboard jackets with just the logo it’s looks great but as time goes by they don’t really hold any value to them there’s no true meaning to them anymore.

Agree. Change the ranking system. You have a jacket no rank. Let others win a prize. Current Bingo leader goes 24 hours a day. Must be more than 1 on that avatar. Why, already has jacket. Played 3 seasons and same ones in top 10. They put in the hours for it.

@Digital leisure we need your feedback on this post…….we need ANSWERS.
Moving forward with repeated designed leaderboard coats let alone without any year included feels of a low value and has really changed the game for many…..however, not in a good way

We really cross our fingers that you consider a change to this.
Please listen to your community of players for once because without us there is no four kings casino and slots

I'm not sure I can provide a satisfying answer to you but the two main reasons we stopped annually updating the jackets were that it was an a lot of work for very few to actually use (unlike other items) and also because it was bloating the game size with all the jacket variants added every year (again -- for not many to use).

It's something we could revisit in the future but currently there are no plans.

I’ve already collected my yearly jackets from the past 5-6 years now? After they stopped making new ones, I’ve stopped so that others can enjoy getting them.

Thank you Dave for some clarification! I have an idea to this solution if it is really taking up too much space and time to create new yearly jackets how about copying and pasting items already in the game and just reworking them for future jackets or switching it up and one year you guys could do t-shirts for leaderboard jackets. Ok for instance if you take the Jean jacket that you buy in Crown Jewels or even the OG leather biker jacket and turn those into leaderboard jackets with the current logos and current years on them all your really doing is adding the years on them. All you gotta do is take all the Torso designs you already have in the game and there are many of them! You take them and rework them instead of creating new designs that’s gonna take up more space and time. We need to keep updating the jackets on a yearly basis it’s gonna keep bringing in the money and keeping the game feeling fresh and worthy of paying for lots of chips again. We have no problem spending money if u keep the game feeling fresh.

I would love to see a change in the leaderboard you could switch from jackets to t shirts put the year on them we need options we love options  the champion get yellow or black instead of just yellow and black combine and 2-10 get light blue and dark blue with the game logos on them I think that would be awesome!

Here another example. I think the Ivy League Blazer could be reworked and made into a leaderboard jacket take the Ivy League logo off and replace with the current game logos and put the years on them. That can’t possibly take up too much of your time and space will it ? I’m just trying to keep this game alive. Having new yearly jackets is a big part of four kings success in my opinion. Some people could care less about these leaderboard jackets but there are a good bit that do enjoy wearing them once in a while. I’m my opinion I believe people don’t wear them because there not flashy enough. People wanna stand out and look good wearing items. I wish I had a 2017 leaderboard  jacket so baddd! They are so badass!!

How about turning the Lit Hoodie into a leaderboard jacket o man that would be sick!!

In 2022 you could do the Ivy League Blazer jacket design already in the game for leaderboard jackets and then in 2023 you could do the Lit Hoodie that’s already in the game to be the next Leaderboard jacket and so on and so on you could keep this going for years because you already have enough torso designs implemented to use for the future I think it’s a great idea!! smile

There’s still 4 months or so till the new year of jackets would arrive there’s plenty of time to reconsider the decisions you guys made just please think about this i hope it’s not a lot of work and that it can be done I think it would save the life of the game and keeps us happy for many years to come!! The game is still growing it’s at its peak right now it’s still a very popular game. A new vision and future of leaderboard jackets should always be a big part of the game. No need to keep creating new designs put the year back on them your just changing 1 number each from 2022 to 2023 to 2024 etc etc

I firmly believe most people don’t wear leaderboard jackets because they simply just don’t stand out from the crowd like they did in 2017. People still wear those jackets. Leaderboard jackets take a lot of time dedication and effort and money to achieve if they were really detailed with some nice glow to them you would see a lot more people wearing the jackets I guarantee it!

Because DL have got very lazy!!
You only have to look at Royal Reserve, they took all the Jackpot items out of there about 2 years ago and never replaced them. Instead they we have to spend £39.99 at a time to get to the jackpot item we want.
It's all about how much money they can get out of us and they know a lot of the true grinders are going to keep spending. This is another reason why EVERYTHING is very hard now to win. Over the years they've seen the dollars and pounds coming in and they want as much as they can out of us now.
I've noticed over the last year or two a lot of the regular players have left because they're not prepared to pour their money down a bottomless pit.

Very true !

It really would be nice if there was a less expensive and less stressful way to acquire previous jackpot series items without being forced to make unnecessary purchases on items we do not wish to purchase. As consumers we should be able to choose

Basically players see this game is free and think oh I'll give this a go not realising if they get quite addicted to it and start buying chips after chips it'll work out the most expensive game you'd ever owned. DL know a few players are addicted to the game that's why it's very hard to win and we continuely loose. Like I said before it's all about money to them and nothing else. Even through the lockdown when a lot of other game developers were having discounts to help and keep the players happy DL not once did any discounts while all that was happening in the world, they were only interested in how much more they could get out of us.
I've got the same attitude as a lot I've seen say in chat. I'll uninstall the game first without a second thought before I spend a single penny on this completely fixed game.

Maybe because the same people are playing 20 hours a day.
