If I want to play, I have to forfeit
Next time it happens:
If on PC, do not exit, cancel or forfeit game. Close out the game window and reload. This oftentimes brings you back to the saved game.
If on mobile, close app, without exiting game. Go to settings, apps, force close wgt app. Restart app.
P.S. Yes, I do believe people know how to stall the game and get you to spin forever, hoping you forfeit.
