    Seems Chrome has updated and made Flash a little harder to use. 

    This should help:

    I would also like acknowledge some of the stranger complaints I've seen through the forums and CS and say: WGT did not block flash from your browser and it would be pretty counter intuitive for us as a business to somehow coerce one of the largest companies in the world to block the thing that you need to play our game.

    WGTChampion:

    From that web site:  "The world-famous plugin will cease to function on the world wide web with the beginning of next year. Browser devs are trying to move from Adobe in the meantime."

    Can you tell us what (if anything) WGT is doing to address this?  Or is the game simply not going to work for us PC players for some period of time (or permanently) once the Flash plugin ceases to function?

    Flash will not "cease to function".  Adobe will just not support it anymore, meaning no updates after that.

    Current versions will still work and the game will play on.

    This is correct. WGT will live longer than Flash.

    Ultimately, WGT needs to move to open web technologies, which are faster and more power-efficient than Flash. They’re also more secure.  I have to believe that some of the major problems we have on WGT would be solved by such a change.

    OOPS evidently not . So it seems that we are up a creek without a paddle . HTML5 it is then or maybe not .
