At long last we are ready to launch Season 3!
TUESDAY MAY 2nd 10AM GMT
After a whole month of updates and testing the site is ready to launch its 3rd season.
I'm sure most of you know what changes have been made but, in a nut shell this is whats new:
Poker Skill Shop – An unlimited supply of Poker Skill available from inside the Poker Den for the price of 1 Poker Skill for 50 chips.
4 new Poker Sharks – The new arrivals are: a Bull, Tiger, Nurse and Angel Sharks.
Holiday Mode: You'll now be able to miss upto 2 days Poker Skill training without losing out.
Anti-Bullying clause: You wont be able to Challenge any player more than 10 times (win, lose or draw) per week (7 days).
24 hour verification: At the moment you have to sign up and then wait for a verification email before you login. This will change to allow players straight into the game after sign up and give them 24 hours to verify the account. After 24 hours the account will be locked if it hasnt been verified. This change has come about as some players have reported the email taking longer than expected to arrive so rather than waiting for it you can play straight away and then verify the account once it arrives.
3 day Free Poker Den - to give all players a taste of what is in the poker den it will be open for the first 3 days of each Season. After these 3 days it will be closed and all benefits like wages, diet value, luck etc will be taken away unless they then pay to get in.
Poker Den up to £5 - An increase of £1.
Poker Den payment schemes: Instead of paying 'per season', Poker Den memberships will now last for 100 days (the length of a season). This means that you can carry over your poker den membership from one season to another - so if you pay half way through a season you'll get about half the next season paid for as well. There will also be a yearly membership that gets you 400 days for the price of 300. By paying for a year's membership you will be paying £15 for 400 days rather than £20. Id like to pass on a discount for our loyal players and at the same time get in some cash to pay for all these updates and future ones - and this does it nicely =).
Ofcourse this was part 1 of the updates, the next is a play money poker room. A massive task that is going to be like adding an entire new site onto the existing one but will add so much to the Poker Sharks experience it'll be more than worth it.
But for now enjoy the current updates and keep everything crossed to help bring some luck to the poker room appearing for Season 4.
Id also like to take this opportunity to thank evryone that helped test for Season 3, you guys found every bug/mistake in record time and really helped us fix things quicker. Your input was invalueable and will ultimatley result in a better game due to us not missing anything and send the site out live with a nasty little bug in it. Basically, Cheers its much appreciated!
I'll send a few reminder emails out so people dont miss the start - so no excuses.
PS im thinking of going under cover for this season so there's no bullying the Creator like last time !

There will always be a place in your heart for Poker Sharks
Oh for sure! I've just been very busy since after season 1. Same person almost completely different life!!!
Started season 2 late but didn't do too badly as you said
I'll always be around and i'll still try support through the Den when i can (or when i'm playing seriously!) I agree with the increase aswell btw, especially with the game now increasing in size so more space/bandwith needed!
