your account, please log in and go to My Account. Under "Play For Fun
Chips", click on the "REFILL" tab to refill your account.
Why did you remove Poker
Since releasing Poker 4 early this year, our developers have worked hard
to improve the features and iron out the initial glitches. We are now
confident that our Poker 4.2 software is arguably the best on the market.
As most players who tried our new Poker 4.2 have happily switched to the
new version, we feel that it is time for Poker 4.2 to completely replace

investigate the incident further for you if you can provide us the hand
number or a specific date and time, with the description of your pocket
and board cards.
