    In a CNET article Flash Is dead, killed by Adobe on 12/31/2020.  Some browsers will restrict its use before then. What does WGT say?

    If anyone from HQ does answer your question (which they won't) they'd probably say "Play the mobile version".

    Interesting piece on Flash games (from June 23, 2017)

    I do play the mobile version ( and the desktop)the graphics are substantially superior to the desktop Flash version, but the features that exist in the mobile are fewer than the mobile; plus a mouse click seems easier than tapping your finger to get the "ding", at least for me.  Also, most in the CC play the desktop version.  You can't play a match when one is playing on a desktop, and you play the mobile version.

    Not 100% sure but i am guessing the existing flash based games will still be supported.. Flash will   cease to exist for new games planning on using that platform.

    Well sort of.

    A couple of tidbits for reading, first the announcement, and then sort of a brief from a different site concerning what will happen.(time lines)

    It looks like support for flash after EOL is not popular among browser manufacturers ... they'll probably follow the herd, and disallow flash to avoid looking like dinosaurs among the tech industry. So while the game will still run on flash, it may be hard to find a browser that will play it . That's what I think ...
