    jacktrade51:
    plus they need to fix the loophole being exploited.

    Exactly.

    Fix the source of the problem and that will stop cheating in its entirety altogether.

    this is the exact reason I will no longer play the coin rooms, or the clowns who putt 10 times or more. Won't play coin rooms again....

    Agree…has happened to me five times recently in Bellagio. Asked WGT to reimburse the coins and they say they can’t verify that it happened. Maddening.

    Actually if you just close the App(Don't sign out) and relaunch you will find they are not stalling but have already hit the Ball.

    Melt them down and build a boat.

    3 times today 1 game after the other it's happened to me yet nothing is done that's the end of the coin rooms for me .. there worthless anyway you can't win anything anyway so these players feel the need to cheat is beyond me you should not have to have another device at hand to try and deal with this .. wgt needs to asses this issue or a lot of genuine players will no longer play as it's simply not worth it

    I do this regularly and it usually works. However, when I tried this yesterday, my opponent was given 45 seconds to log back in. 2 seconds later I got a message to the effect of  "Reconnection Failed" and it was game over. Looks like they have found a new way to cheat.

    In response to this post and pdb1's above (where he said I would doubt Tom would get in trouble) ... lol

    I might be a club owner but I was suspended 3 years ago for naming a cheater in WGT forum and then subject to monitoring for 3 months when I got back in.  What that meant was any forum post I made had to be approved by a monitor so it showed up 24 hours later.

    I'm torn on this.  I don't want cheating allegations running rampant, especially by all the nuts running around the Internet.  But I still believe that WGT is not acting strongly enough against cheaters, and not making it easy for responsible players to report them to WGT.

    Tom.
