Next game was against a player 3 below me.so i hooked him three times in a row . I then ran my three balls .lined up shot the 8 in correct pocket with out scratching ,then sent a smiley face. Next thing the game says i ran out of time and gave the opponent the same shot ,which or course it was not missed. WOW WHAT A SCAM

    By Rob Burkett
    This game should come with a warning of we wont let you get anywhere unless you pay us and we will make sure of it. Its the type of game where you win 2 or 3 games and lose 5 games. You can tell alot of the games are fixed. I wouldnt recommend this game at all. Or as siskel and ebert would if said we give this game 2 thumbs down

    Usually from India, low winning %, the best sticks, billions of coins, but have only played a few thousand games. It's not about skill, you're ONLY as good as the amount of money you're willing to spend.

    I have played for awhile and once I use my own money to buy coins I lose the games almost back to back. Its rigged and I won't be using my own money from now on. Its a fun game but sad its a rip off..and i sent a complaint in and all they did was place blame on my server and connection problems. Its RIGGED!! RIP OFFS ..

    Although this game can be enjoyable when working properly, it often has what it labels as “connection slow” issues. If you tap on a profile during this event, you will see the message “updating.” When this happens and it finishes its update, you could potentially be losing time leaving you no time to aim and shoot causing you to lose your turn. This has often caused players to lose the game & money if you pay for any additional coins. It makes it appear that your connection is slow but in reality the games’ network is overburdened. This is happening more frequently than when I first started playing. There are other minor issues which aren’t worth mentioning. But the so called “slow connection” issue is the worst and why I keep rating it with 3 stars. UPDATE: After reading some other reviews, I agree that there are bots especially when chat comments like Never Give Up are used when it makes no sense. I agree with seems that most players are in countries other than my own and skill levels not matched. I agree that it cheats you out of money and algorithyms used seem to cause you to lose. There seems to be lack of support but increase in glitches. What I don’t get is why it’s still labeled as the Editor’s Choice. Therefore I’m downgrading the rating to 2 stars.

    There are times where I absolutely hate the game because I keep losing to people with a higher skill level than me. The way they select your opponent is completely random, which on one note can be pretty fun. But then on another note, you got someone who is a skill level 16 (like me) playing up against a skill level 131 or even higher. (I have seen on the world leaderboard someone with a skill level of 972) Which can seem pretty unfair, but winning against them is not impossible, but it is really hard. I do like most of the concepts in the game. The fact that you can get a huge amount of cues in your collection is pretty sweet. With more cues, you have a ton of different advantages. And the general designs of some of the cues are really nice. When it comes to the games themselves, they are pretty simple, but you do have to make sure you aim correctly. Because sometimes when it seems like you have a perfect aim, it could actually go a bit lower or a bit higher than what you think, so just keep note of that. Overall it is a pretty fun game, but for those who tend to have a little gamer rage, this game can certainly get you a little mad when you get put up against someone that is super experienced.

  • THOUSAND of cheaters and LOADS of connectivity issues Sep 3, 2021

    By xSyKoTiKx
    There are an immeasurable amount of people using aiming hacks/mods to cheat, allowing them to make absolutely crazy bank and kick shots with no skill or time to aim 100% of the time, leaving you with only 2 options: either quit the match right away (and lose your bet) or play the game and wait for them to win 100% of the time because the hack prevents them from being able to lose. To make matters worse, Miniclip has a disclaimer saying they are not liable for lost currency, to which I say is absolutely ludicrous because it’s virtual currency they can easily replace and they are 100% liable because it’s their systems and their product/coding that allows for said hacks/mods to even function. Especially after them investigating to prove that the reported player did in-fact cheat, they should then look at their game logs to see who they played against and reimburse every one of them with whatever amount was lost. It’s a pathetic cop-out for them to claim no responsibility in their poor design. Separately, this game has an absolutely crazy amount of connection issues regardless of being on WiFi or cellular, no matter where you are, leaving their servers as being the only common denominator, meaning it’s all on their end to fix (which they never do).

    Has trouble with wifi connection, resulting in made 8-ball shots suddenly returning the 8-ball to the table and telling me I've timed out. It's a very good game that tends to scratch the cue ball any time you hit it hard. I've never seen so many scratches! The idiosyncrasies make it different from the real game; but it still requires many of the same skills. The wifi problem belongs to the game, not the user. My wifi is working fine when the game is having connection problems.
  • Great, needs some work Oct 29, 2019

    By Masoon 88
    They keep offering me a chance to review even though I already did. So here are some things I think could be improved. 1) Please add an "open all" for the prize box opening, it takes too long to open all of them, I just want to get back to game play. 2) Friend requests -I get friend requests from the players who have beaten me (almost solely), if I'm not set up to have friends, I should be able to block all requests. Currently I have to x each of them out and it's a nuisance. Plus I am sick of these petty sore winners wanting to jab at me just because they beat me, winning should be enough. 3) Special offers swipe down suddenly when you go to open boxes or select game play making players accidentally select purchases. Obviously I don't buy stuff that I accidentally select, but I think it's rude of the game maker to try that tactic. If they are doing it so that folks who are stupid, young or inexperienced enough to buy because they think they are obligated to, then that's sort of stealing. Other than those three things this game is great. It's cool to be sitting in Kentucky playing a woman in Indonesia, win or lose.
  • Disturbing Jan 29, 2021

    By Bootzilla in da house
    This is a fantastic game. Been playing it for years. Have built up my coins over time, never playing for more than 100k. For a long time would only play for 1,000. Only the past few months usually playing for 20k per game. I’m an above average player and have played about 5,000 matches. I unintentionally selected a match for 2,000,000, which is quite easy to do with the interface and I’m surprised I never unintentionally did this before. The game starts and the opponent breaks. A couple stripes go in. He/she starts taking crazy shots with minimal time taken to line them up and balls are bouncing every which way. Each shot ends up with a stripe going in. The bot’s final shot with the 8 ball is the craziest with the 8 ball heading off towards the corner and then all of a sudden careening off a random ball flying around knocking it straight into the side pocket. It all happened so fast I’m not even sure if a pocket was called for the 8 ball. It was so obviously a bot I was playing, causing me to lose over half my coins. I never even got to take a shot in the match. Has been a fantastic game for years and then this utter nonsense happened. Really disappointing. Super disappointing. A bot? C’mon, guys. You just wiped out so much good will. What a shame.
  • Update Sep 5, 2020

    By Babbs81
    I used to think that this app was a 5 star app. This week it has gone down to a 3. After this last update everything worked fine, but, now it’s very frustrating to play. I like being competitive with my friends and in the club I’m in, but, this past week, when I win a game, I will get the winning coins in my player page, but, when I go to my friends page or my club page, there are no coins...Zero and it doesn’t matter how many games I win, it still says zero. Very frustrating when you like to compete with people. I have already been kicked out of a good club because I can’t increase my coins off of zero. So, I have tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but, it is still the same way. And I live in the United States and it has me living in Canada now. There’s no way that I have found to change it back to the US. If this can’t be fixed, without me losing my level that I’m at and all my coins and money that I have, then I’m ready to delete the app and be done with it. I would hate to do that because I play it a lot and like the competition, but, if there is no competition there is no sense in playing anymore. Please try to fix this problem and I’ll change my rating back.
  • Pop-up invites cannot be turned off. Jul 27, 2021

    By MomVenter
    I enjoy the game; I’m only giving it 3/5 stars because while you play there are unending pop ups over your ball holder that distract and prevent you from seeing 1)when it’s your turn or 2)your rack of balls. You can decline but immediately another pops up. I cannot turn them off. While your playing a game how can you stop and accept another player’s invite. These invites are SO ANNOYING and DISTRACTING. The invites should NOT keep Popping up (from the same player) while I am playing a game already. Between games, I can look at invites if I CHOOSE! I should be able to play a game without the CONTINUOUS AGGRAVATION and DISTRACTIONS... especially from same person over and over and over and over. So flipping annoying. I’m thinking about deleting! It STOLE 300,000 coins from me. I was scrolling left get to more affordable venues (London, Sydney, Moscow) for some reason I was entering Jakarta. I tried to cancel immediately. It stole my coins. A few days later, I had my phone in my pocket. When I took it out to check time, I was "playing "( again in a high stakes venue)even though I hadn't chosen to play. Lost 200,000 coins. There is no way to correct/stop the steal... no customer contact or customer service available. I will play in London u til I get my coins back to 603,000+.
  • This WAS a good game... Mar 29, 2018

    By P.D.347
    I've been playing this game for a couple of years now and have really, really, liked it. Until this week. Some ppl just can't leave well enough alone. The commercial content and coin collecting aspect of it had been tolerable until the latest changes. If you want to play slot machines, and trash talk with friends, then maybe you will get some enjoyment out of it. But for the pool purist, or someone interested in actually playing an accurate computer sim of the game, keep looking. This game is now catered to the kids... A pool stick that you have to continually pay credits to recharge? Ridiculous. So sad to see the end of my favorite ipad game... Hey guys at Miniclip, how about reinvesting in making the game actually better? Instead you're just constantly inventing different ways to get another few dollars out of everyone. Also, it's a little fishy how out of my thousands of daily spins, I seem to land on $100 about 80% of the time... and, I don't EVER recall winning anything other than a thousand bucks or so on a "Scratcher." I wouldn't play these at all if I weren't forced to, so if you're going to force ppl to play, you could at least make it fair. Oh, and enough with the bazillion different pool sticks! Geeeez!
  • Well it WAS great . . . Jul 11, 2019

    By Guitar Girl Rocks
    As for actual pool game goes, it’s pretty accurate except a couple odds and ends like, if you pot the 8 ball on break you really won the game — this doesn’t do that. There were a minor glitch or two here and there in the app. But not really that big of an issue that’d really interfere with your playing. Before the latest update my biggest two complaints were the fake/bot players and not having the ability to sell your pool cues that you no longer use. But now, since the latest update, on my iPhone it won’t load and on my iPad it forecloses every time I enter into a game. The only way I can play is in practice mode. As before, the ads are annoying af and as well as the constant cue upgrades on cues I NEVER USE. I do find the game a little rigged. Once you get your coins up a good bit, suddenly it hard to win games and you’re paired up with someone who’s at a greatly more level then you (for example: you’re level 22 and the person you’re playing against is at level 122). And this app hates slow connection speeds, it either won’t load or freezes up periodically during play. I hope the app developers fixes the bugs since the latest update for the iPhone and iPad. On my MacBook Pro, through Facebook’s website it’s ok, but not great.

  • Annoying pop ups and other scams Jun 11, 2021

    By akshayjagz
    Have been using the app ever since it has existed. First major complaint I have is the number of pop ups on the screen. As soon as you open the app you get these ads, previous challenges, online players - everything in form of annoying pop ups. When you try to play a match, there is a quick pop up as soon as you click a city. It feels like the app is trying to force you into accidentally buying a cue or coins. And these pop ups continue to show up even if you are playing a match. Accidental clicks on these pop ups exit us from the ongoing match and we lose the bet. Another major complaint is regarding the spin, scratch and rewards in general. I don’t think the creators understand how a spinning wheel should work. The wheel is supposed to be completely random and not based on your level or VIP points. It is okay to have different ranges of rewards for different levels, but manipulating a wheel by showing higher rewards which a person will never get is unethical in every sense. In summary, I think the app is turning into a scam which is manipulating players into spending money. In my opinion, it’s not the right way to make money, just a smart strategy. I would prefer buying what I like instead of having me click on an ad and manipulating me into buying what I wouldn’t buy myself. I have given 2 stars for the functionality, table designs and for having 9 ball included.

    Game is good.. Sometimes or even many times stuck... If you are lucky you will announced as winner if you exit when it stuck you will be declared as looser... On top of that.. Worst thing is they have bullying smileys and chats... The opponent use that to distract and try to disturb your concentration and make you loose..instead of relaxation this game irritates you.. Solely because of this reason I have h installed this app.. If you go to games just to relax please stay away
  • Glitches or intentional? Oct 12, 2017

    By SampsonD
    I like the different game goals (rings) and the look of different tables and options it gives, but other than that I’m not impressed. One problem is it doesn’t match you with players in your “ranking or experience”. A beginner may end up with an opponent that has been classified as a pro or better, depending on how long they’ve been playing. Also too many interruptions when playing with challenger banners or wanting you to challenge your FB friends. The cue stick charges don’t last through a game if you have a bad break then you may have to recharge more than once for consistent shots and that’s in addition to placing a bet. The balls sometimes can hang half over a pocket to drop then it jolts back towards the table, but the cue can too often roll with ease for a scratch. It’s just a bit fishy when you AND your opponents ball should have dropped but jolts back from the hole. There are a few more minor issues that are annoying like not being able to type your own text for chat. I’d rather it was emojis than some of the stupid pretext messages and then you have to buy more if you want to add some. Shows a lot of greed. Plus it’s anybody’s guess as to who is going to break. If you play 5 games in a row with a different player each game you may not get to break on any of those even if you lost previously. All of this is even after purchasing the app. 🙄

    There are times where I absolutely hate the game because I keep losing to people with a higher skill level than me. The way they select your opponent is completely random, which on one note can be pretty fun. But then on another note, you got someone who is a skill level 16 (like me) playing up against a skill level 131 or even higher. (I have seen on the world leaderboard someone with a skill level of 972) Which can seem pretty unfair, but winning against them is not impossible, but it is really hard. I do like most of the concepts in the game. The fact that you can get a huge amount of cues in your collection is pretty sweet. With more cues, you have a ton of different advantages. And the general designs of some of the cues are really nice. When it comes to the games themselves, they are pretty simple, but you do have to make sure you aim correctly. Because sometimes when it seems like you have a perfect aim, it could actually go a bit lower or a bit higher than what you think, so just keep note of that.

    This is a fantastic game. Been playing it for years. Have built up my coins over time, never playing for more than 100k. For a long time would only play for 1,000. Only the past few months usually playing for 20k per game. I’m an above average player and have played about 5,000 matches. I unintentionally selected a match for 2,000,000, which is quite easy to do with the interface and I’m surprised I never unintentionally did this before. The game starts and the opponent breaks. A couple stripes go in. He/she starts taking crazy shots with minimal time taken to line them up and balls are bouncing every which way. Each shot ends up with a stripe going in. The bot’s final shot with the 8 ball is the craziest with the 8 ball heading off towards the corner and then all of a sudden careening off a random ball flying around knocking it straight into the side pocket. It all happened so fast I’m not even sure if a pocket was called for the 8 ball. It was so obviously a bot I was playing, causing me to lose over half my coins. I never even got to take a shot in the match. Has been a fantastic game for years and then this utter nonsense happened. Really disappointing. Super disappointing. A bot? C’mon, guys. You just wiped out so much good will. What a shame.
  • Update Sep 5, 2020

    By Babbs81
    I used to think that this app was a 5 star app. This week it has gone down to a 3. After this last update everything worked fine, but, now it’s very frustrating to play. I like being competitive with my friends and in the club I’m in, but, this past week, when I win a game, I will get the winning coins in my player page, but, when I go to my friends page or my club page, there are no coins...Zero and it doesn’t matter how many games I win, it still says zero. Very frustrating when you like to compete with people. I have already been kicked out of a good club because I can’t increase my coins off of zero. So, I have tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but, it is still the same way. And I live in the United States and it has me living in Canada now. There’s no way that I have found to change it back to the US. If this can’t be fixed, without me losing my level that I’m at and all my coins and money that I have, then I’m ready to delete the app and be done with it. I would hate to do that because I play it a lot and like the competition, but, if there is no competition there is no sense in playing anymore. Please try to fix this problem and I’ll change my rating back.
  • This WAS a good game... Mar 29, 2018

    By P.D.347
    I've been playing this game for a couple of years now and have really, really, liked it. Until this week. Some ppl just can't leave well enough alone. The commercial content and coin collecting aspect of it had been tolerable until the latest changes. If you want to play slot machines, and trash talk with friends, then maybe you will get some enjoyment out of it. But for the pool purist, or someone interested in actually playing an accurate computer sim of the game, keep looking. This game is now catered to the kids... A pool stick that you have to continually pay credits to recharge? Ridiculous. So sad to see the end of my favorite ipad game... Hey guys at Miniclip, how about reinvesting in making the game actually better? Instead you're just constantly inventing different ways to get another few dollars out of everyone. Also, it's a little fishy how out of my thousands of daily spins, I seem to land on $100 about 80% of the time... and, I don't EVER recall winning anything other than a thousand bucks or so on a "Scratcher." I wouldn't play these at all if I weren't forced to, so if you're going to force ppl to play, you could at least make it fair. Oh, and enough with the bazillion different pool sticks! Geeeez!
  • Coins disappearing Jul 11, 2021

    By sean_sean2012
    I don’t know what’s going on with this app but I log in and play a couple of 100 coin games and next thing I know I lost 10,000 what in the world I never made a large bet and I won most of the games. Idk how I went from 113,000 coins to 37,000…I played maybe 4 games of 9 ball 100 coin bet and than I see my coin value go down to 27,000 (mind boggling). I would never spend money on this app for coins if they just disappear, I don’t get it. I still can’t wrap my head around it, I love playing pool but this is ridiculous. Btw I did all the logout than log back in stuff but to no avail of course. Update: I figured out where the coins was going it was the recharging of the cue stick smh if you don’t want to be charged with recharging cues than use the basic cue stick. So that’s why I’m using for now, which means I am playing at a disadvantage (the fancier cue stick that have more power, aim, etc needs recharging a lot and some take a lot of coins smh) but I don’t mind because I like the challenge. I love the game and the graphics and feel of the game here is top notch, the only drawback is occasionally you lose games because ppl have better cue sticks and don’t miss no matter how bad they aim lol that’s the only flaw

    I don’t write reviews very often but I wanted to for this one. First off, thanks for making it entertaining enough that I want to spend 5.00 for the pool pass. So many game programmers developed a game and just expect that the players will put out cash just because. Something I really hate... But I do have a small complaint about your game. Let’s say I’m in the middle of a 5000 game of 9 ball. A friend comes online and challenged me. I leave the game I’m playing and the matchup just keeps spinning with no connection to my friend. This is extremely irritating because the matchup never works. It cannot be that hard to make it work. Especially if the friend is right here in the U.S. I’m matched up with complete strangers from all over the world, but cannot get hooked up with a friend that is in another state..... Please fix this. And then my review will change to 5 stars. Until that time, 4 is the best I can give. Thank you. Hello, I paid for the pool pass, and was going to collect this morning but my prize money isn’t available. It’s just showing that the next pool pass starts in 68 hours. How can I collect my prize money. If I’m unable to, the review will drop to a single star. Just saying. Thanks.
  • Cheats you of time & money Jun 7, 2018

    By ImaUserNoMore
    Although this game can be enjoyable when working properly, it often has what it labels as “connection slow” issues. If you tap on a profile during this event, you will see the message “updating.” When this happens and it finishes its update, you could potentially be losing time leaving you no time to aim and shoot causing you to lose your turn. This has often caused players to lose the game & money if you pay for any additional coins. It makes it appear that your connection is slow but in reality the games’ network is overburdened. This is happening more frequently than when I first started playing. There are other minor issues which aren’t worth mentioning. But the so called “slow connection” issue is the worst and why I keep rating it with 3 stars. UPDATE: After reading some other reviews, I agree that there are bots especially when chat comments like Never Give Up are used when it makes no sense. I agree with seems that most players are in countries other than my own and skill levels not matched. I agree that it cheats you out of money and algorithyms used seem to cause you to lose. There seems to be lack of support but increase in glitches. What I don’t get is why it’s still labeled as the Editor’s Choice. Therefore I’m downgrading the rating to 2 stars.
  • THOUSAND of cheaters and LOADS of connectivity issues Sep 3, 2021

    By xSyKoTiKx
    There are an immeasurable amount of people using aiming hacks/mods to cheat, allowing them to make absolutely crazy bank and kick shots with no skill or time to aim 100% of the time, leaving you with only 2 options: either quit the match right away (and lose your bet) or play the game and wait for them to win 100% of the time because the hack prevents them from being able to lose. To make matters worse, Miniclip has a disclaimer saying they are not liable for lost currency, to which I say is absolutely ludicrous because it’s virtual currency they can easily replace and they are 100% liable because it’s their systems and their product/coding that allows for said hacks/mods to even function. Especially after them investigating to prove that the reported player did in-fact cheat, they should then look at their game logs to see who they played against and reimburse every one of them with whatever amount was lost. It’s a pathetic cop-out for them to claim no responsibility in their poor design. Separately, this game has an absolutely crazy amount of connection issues regardless of being on WiFi or cellular, no matter where you are, leaving their servers as being the only common denominator, meaning it’s all on their end to fix (which they never do).
  • Pop-up invites cannot be turned off. Jul 27, 2021

    By MomVenter
    I enjoy the game; I’m only giving it 3/5 stars because while you play there are unending pop ups over your ball holder that distract and prevent you from seeing 1)when it’s your turn or 2)your rack of balls. You can decline but immediately another pops up. I cannot turn them off. While your playing a game how can you stop and accept another player’s invite. These invites are SO ANNOYING and DISTRACTING. The invites should NOT keep Popping up (from the same player) while I am playing a game already. Between games, I can look at invites if I CHOOSE! I should be able to play a game without the CONTINUOUS AGGRAVATION and DISTRACTIONS... especially from same person over and over and over and over. So flipping annoying. I’m thinking about deleting! It STOLE 300,000 coins from me. I was scrolling left get to more affordable venues (London, Sydney, Moscow) for some reason I was entering Jakarta. I tried to cancel immediately. It stole my coins. A few days later, I had my phone in my pocket. When I took it out to check time, I was "playing "( again in a high stakes venue)even though I hadn't chosen to play. Lost 200,000 coins. There is no way to correct/stop the steal... no customer contact or customer service available. I will play in London u til I get my coins back to 603,000+.
  • Well it WAS great . . . Jul 11, 2019

    By Guitar Girl Rocks
    As for actual pool game goes, it’s pretty accurate except a couple odds and ends like, if you pot the 8 ball on break you really won the game — this doesn’t do that. There were a minor glitch or two here and there in the app. But not really that big of an issue that’d really interfere with your playing. Before the latest update my biggest two complaints were the fake/bot players and not having the ability to sell your pool cues that you no longer use. But now, since the latest update, on my iPhone it won’t load and on my iPad it forecloses every time I enter into a game. The only way I can play is in practice mode. As before, the ads are annoying af and as well as the constant cue upgrades on cues I NEVER USE. I do find the game a little rigged. Once you get your coins up a good bit, suddenly it hard to win games and you’re paired up with someone who’s at a greatly more level then you (for example: you’re level 22 and the person you’re playing against is at level 122). And this app hates slow connection speeds, it either won’t load or freezes up periodically during play. I hope the app developers fixes the bugs since the latest update for the iPhone and iPad. On my MacBook Pro, through Facebook’s website it’s ok, but not great.
  • There are some major glitches Feb 18, 2021

    By Sarafina22
    I love this game but there are some major glitches at times. For instance free coins and their videos. I watch the videos and it does not give me the free coins. I watch again still the free coin prompt is there as if I didn’t watch the video. Sometimes when I play the ball I am aiming at completely misses!! Aimed spot on and even the opponent questions what just happened. Sometimes I don’t even have a cue stick on the table. I can’t shoot just have to sit and wait until the time runs out. Also I can have my target acquired and get ready to shoot and as soon as I touch the draw back it takes my aim completely off!! Or if the stick is placed closed to the drawback of the cue it will shoot when you haven’t touched it!! These things are extremely frustrating when your in a match. If you miss one time someone will run the table. Also the Free spin is consistently giving the the same amount of coins!! If you have 2 spins it will give the same amount most all the time in the second spin. The most I think I have ever gotten is 500 coins. I got a rate box one time. I love this game but these issues need to be addressed. I have talked with other players and they clearly are aware of what I call the “glitches”. Other than that I love 8 ball pool!!
  • Unfair Oct 9, 2020

    By Unfair/rigged
    I’ve been playing this game for a while, but after I write this review I’m deleting this app. First off why should you have to play a player 300 levels above you, you don’t stand a chance. Every time you think your doing good and might win a game, boom straight line shots that you know will go in don’t. The daily spins are rigged and will never give you more that 500 coins. Second once you get to about level 50, you never win, if you even get a shot at all the player your playing is going to win 90% of the time. All it want you to do is lose your coins so you have to buy more. I have never paid actual money for coins and never will. The clubs are so rigged it’s crazy, join a club and you will se yourself, if you don’t pay 8$ a week for pro membership you are playing against someone that plays Venice witch is 150million for a win and don’t have a chance in winning! It’s a money driven game and if you don’t pay for the membership or pay for coins it’s impossible to level up. And the rings are a joke. Now mini clip made it impossible to get any decent cues and forget about getting a legendary cue if you don’t pay you will never get one. Now you have cue trophies? And other rigged tiers you are trying to get it’s simply UNFAIR for new players.
  • Annoying pop ups and other scams Jun 11, 2021

    By akshayjagz
    Have been using the app ever since it has existed. First major complaint I have is the number of pop ups on the screen. As soon as you open the app you get these ads, previous challenges, online players - everything in form of annoying pop ups. When you try to play a match, there is a quick pop up as soon as you click a city. It feels like the app is trying to force you into accidentally buying a cue or coins. And these pop ups continue to show up even if you are playing a match. Accidental clicks on these pop ups exit us from the ongoing match and we lose the bet. Another major complaint is regarding the spin, scratch and rewards in general. I don’t think the creators understand how a spinning wheel should work. The wheel is supposed to be completely random and not based on your level or VIP points. It is okay to have different ranges of rewards for different levels, but manipulating a wheel by showing higher rewards which a person will never get is unethical in every sense. In summary, I think the app is turning into a scam which is manipulating players into spending money. In my opinion, it’s not the right way to make money, just a smart strategy. I would prefer buying what I like instead of having me click on an ad and manipulating me into buying what I wouldn’t buy myself. I have given 2 stars for the functionality, table designs and for having 9 ball included.
  • Glitches or intentional? Oct 12, 2017

    By SampsonD
    I like the different game goals (rings) and the look of different tables and options it gives, but other than that I’m not impressed. One problem is it doesn’t match you with players in your “ranking or experience”. A beginner may end up with an opponent that has been classified as a pro or better, depending on how long they’ve been playing. Also too many interruptions when playing with challenger banners or wanting you to challenge your FB friends. The cue stick charges don’t last through a game if you have a bad break then you may have to recharge more than once for consistent shots and that’s in addition to placing a bet. The balls sometimes can hang half over a pocket to drop then it jolts back towards the table, but the cue can too often roll with ease for a scratch. It’s just a bit fishy when you AND your opponents ball should have dropped but jolts back from the hole. There are a few more minor issues that are annoying like not being able to type your own text for chat. I’d rather it was emojis than some of the stupid pretext messages and then you have to buy more if you want to add some. Shows a lot of greed. Plus it’s anybody’s guess as to who is going to break. If you play 5 games in a row with a different player each game you may not get to break on any of those even if you lost previously. All of this is even after purchasing the app. 🙄
  • I felt more of those negative thoughts Apr 22, 2021

    By ramillicus
    I felt it in the long run of playing 8 ball pool. First its fine ,good, enjoyable. But now in more of annoyance. Like something fishy is going on in most of the games. Like, there’s someone manipulating every aspects in the game. That someone is pulling me away from winning or losing most of my coins. Even if its obvious that im the winner. It turned upside down. Sometimes my preparation for the next balls is excellent, the table & balls moved. Sometimes i’ve potted all the balls, except the last ball. When i’ve potted the last ball and I’m the winner, suddenly the last ball came back to its place where it was before i hit it, and suddenly the opponent turned out to be hitting the ball. And frustratingly, the opponent wins. Let me clear it, I didn’t potted the cue ball. There are many more of something odds or irregularity that I am feeling while playing. Even the sequence of opponents, sometimes there is something odd. An hours ago, & even yesterday, i always bet & always 50K for double the money. Ever being irritated, so I double-tap or triple-tap the 50K coz I’m annoyed already, yet still variety of 200, 500, 5,000, & 20K are the games that being given to me. I’m catching up to bring back my losed coins while having a feeling that thats not fair. So I steadily bet for 50K. But what do I get? Who will be happy when this is happening t you. You want to play for enjoyment, but what is this!
  • Nothing but a money trap Sep 11, 2020

    By never agian83
    Ok so I figured it out I think.. you play other players in the lower levels and lose. A lot. You only win just enough to get hooked, unless you pay big bucks, you’ll never see the higher levels. Why? Well. The game limits how far you go. How? If you miss one shot. I mean just one, the other players, (which some are the computer posing as real people) can run the whole table without you getting another shot AT ALL. Then you lose your coins and get kicked back to a lower level. The cycle repeats itself until you are scrambling to win your money back to compete in higher levels. Once you start getting close, your shots start to get off and your aim isn’t accurate (I literally screen recorded me playing and witnessed on the slow mo playback that even tho my aim was right, the computer made me miss the shot). Then you have to spend more coins to recharge your stick. They then give you spins and free coins, 100 to 300 coins a pop to keep you playing. After realizing you can’t beat the game, you go ahead and spend money to purchase more coins to play at higher levels, the cycle goes on and on until next thing you know, you’re back at no coins and either have to play at the lower stages or pay again to temporarily play at the higher ones. This game is a money trap and I’ll only play it to pass the time. But don’t expect to really win much.
  • Gifts won’t load to send or receive anything!!!! Aug 10, 2021

    By theannoyedgal
    For months I haven’t been able to get gifts to load! I’ve deleted and downloaded game repeatedly and tried everything I could think of to fix it! Nothing has worked! I’ve missed out on so much due to this mistake on your end! Also it’s impossible to simply write to you and let you know when there is an issue! Not to mention I’ve also been paying for this app weekly and got NOTHING out of it! There’s much to be done to make this app more successful and the first thing you should do is make it easier to let you know when someone is having an issue, second would be to make sure you somehow compensate players when there’s an error on your end, and also you should help make more sense of cue stick information all together. I truly hope you find a way to to make up for the MONTHS I’ve missed out on and definitely make it easier for players to let you know when something isn’t working! We should be able to go to settings and be able to click on a link to directly let you know and that way you can actually fix the issues! I’m sorry I’m im extremely disappointed that this has gone on this long and that I’ve wasted so much time trying to fix it on my own to no prevail and spent so much money on a game that’s constantly letting me down! And today I finally gave up and deleted my subscription!

    It's an addictive app that's been very disappointing lately. If you're supposed to win you will. They do updates that messes the app up, i.e. coins come up missing in between using the app, you'll have the 8 ball left to pocket and either you make the shot and you'll get a message that your internet connection has dropped or the app will go to a black screen until to much time has gone by and the app restarts. I don't need/want some auto-generated response to my post. Save it for one who cares🤮

    I have been playing this game since 2016 and it was going smoothly before the latest update. After updating to the latest version of this game, it sucks everything. Every time my opponents got my turn due to slow connection but it is totally fake because it runs smoothly in another apps and platforms. I think I have made a mistake by updating it to the latest version very poor update came from you. I have spent lots of time and money on it.

    The game itself is fun but the servers make it literally unplayable. Its so laggy. It says "Connection is slow, please dont quit" and the game freezes and then it says ur time is out once it unfreezes. And i know damn well its not my fault because im at home with 4 out of 4 dots. Please fix this. I dont know how many tournaments ive run out of time and lost because it freezes meanwhile it counts my time. The matchmaking is so bad aswell. It doesnt matter at all how good u are. Waste of good game

Time to pull membership ...
  • Editors choice? 😂 Feb 19, 2021

    By BStans
    After playing this game pretty regularly for 1-2 months this is how I feel. It’s sad that this makes editors choice. It’s a game that is annoying with how hard they try to get you to spend money. The matchmaking is rigged against you at a certain point(I’ve played players lvl 100+ as a level 28.. 😂😑🙄). Cant play certain tables or else you’ll go bankrupt and have to buy more coins. But don’t worry, there is a wheel spin that you could win up to $2,000,000 🤩😂 Ive only ever won $150-$250(probably spun it 50+ times and it’s always one of two prizes out of like 18 possibilities so that’s rigged too). I also have a gripe with having to scroll to the lower level tables every time I want to play. I have to flip past 7 higher level tables that I’ve unlocked and can’t afford to play on every time I want to play a game. It also doesn’t cost much but it costs money to even play off line by yourself. It’s really obnoxious. It’s always trying to get $5-$15! From me for pool cues and coins. Aside from all of that it all functions pretty well when you’re in a game and it can be a good time shooting pool. I’m gonna look for a better app but this might be editors choice because it’s the only decent pool game 🤷🏼‍♂️ it’s the only one I’ve tried so far but from what I can tell, I wouldn’t get too excited about this.

    By Rob Burkett
    This game should come with a warning of we wont let you get anywhere unless you pay us and we will make sure of it. Its the type of game where you win 2 or 3 games and lose 5 games. You can tell alot of the games are fixed. I wouldnt recommend this game at all. Or as siskel and ebert would if said we give this game 2 thumbs down

    I have played for awhile and once I use my own money to buy coins I lose the games almost back to back. Its rigged and I won't be using my own money from now on. Its a fun game but sad its a rip off..and i sent a complaint in and all they did was place blame on my server and connection problems. Its RIGGED!! RIP OFFS ..

    This new update has made this game go from great to awful. Slow connection, then run out of time since the update. You guys need to figure out what went wrong. Today, I made the 8 ball to win the game. Then i got a message saying, you ran out of time. My opponent then made the 8 ball again and they won. Get it together because this a huge let down!

    Game is good.. Sometimes or even many times stuck... If you are lucky you will announced as winner if you exit when it stuck you will be declared as looser... On top of that.. Worst thing is they have bullying smileys and chats... The opponent use that to distract and try to disturb your concentration and make you loose..instead of relaxation this game irritates you.. Solely because of this reason I have h installed this app.. If you go to games just to relax please stay away

    Extremely pay-to-win, with game-breaking perks to make it dramatically easier both directly in the game and in the long run for people willing to pay. I normally don't mind this approach with games, but in a competitive multiplayer game it's absolutely ridiculous to make them such unfair advantages.

    This game is Bugging, 5 times I've lost big money to bugs in the server connection. All my purchases lost due an error with the system. Everytime I win a game the system stops saying 'poor connection' and the comes back saying 'I ran out time'. Meanwhile, my WiFi and Mobile connection is perfect nothig wrong with it. The game is active one min the next when I think I have won the game and waiting for confirmation, the system says I ran out of time, 5 win fails now. Please give me back my money.
