Notification on special hand constellations ("Jackpot")

Postby Doogie » Wed Oct 29, 2008 8:24 am

Hi!

A feature that I'm looking forward to would be a Jackpot feature, where you can award someone if he holds a special hand, like "AAAA" or "8888", royal flushes or similar.
Would be great if the administrators could be notified on that occasions to reward the winner with special prices or a bonus.

regards

That would be difficult to implement directly in the game as it would take a whole group of settings to identify the qualifying hands, the qualifying players, the qualifying tables, the bonus amount, how often it could be paid, a bonus account, the bonus award message, etc. A better way to do that would be to write a custom utility that constantly scanned the hand history files on the server looking for your jackpot hands and then used the API to send notices and award chips.
