I have just found out, purely by chance, that RTG did not know what everyone else on the planet has known for at least 2 years - Flash was discontinued at the end of December :eek:

As a result, nearly all their older slots cannot be played on the download client or PC browser because they didn't convert them to HTML5.
Looks like they CAN still be played on mobiles at least!
By my reckoning, that means PC players can only play 77 slots from the full list of 204 slots in their catalogue...

This is going to cost casinos and affiliates big time :mad:
I'm just glad I'm not in casino CS dealing with all the player complaints!

Yeah we had some folks discussing this on our forum. Its not like this should have come as a surprise to anyone. Flash has been dying since Steve Jobs said it would never be on an iphone and that was what, 10 years ago or more? Google and other browser developers have announced a timeline years ago for the end of Flash support and even Adobe announced the EOL was end of 2020 back in 2017.

Obviously RTG are not a cutting edge developer and they are happy to operate behind the times in the shadows of unregulated markets, but even by their standards this is fairly amateurish.

That should cover most of you.... The thread title breaks the link from the home page listing. This happen when Characters such as ### or others are used in the title. The only way to access the thread, is to access the forum, in this case "Anything Goes", and click the post from there.

Reiterating, any link other than the original post in "Anything Goes" breaks.

Fix the title, and problem is solved ;)

KK you drama queen! :p

RTG have been converting games to HTML5 for the last 2 maybe 3 years and slowly releasing them as they go. Affected games are still available on the download version of the casinos. I believe there are still some outstanding updates yet to happen to convert some but not many.

The older games or legacy games that remain in flash will be removed (or have been already). These are games that either couldn't be converted or little played games.

Well that's strange!
The screenshot I posted above was from the download client of an RTG casino (not one of yours).

So some casinos do have them on download while others do not?
Why would that be?

Strange.
Since the beginning of December, the newer games (and some older ones too) can't be played on my desktop but can on the tab and the Phone. The error code is: device or browser is not supported. Your hardware does not meet minimum system requirements.

Same and I am not sure how many players want to play on a mobile device or install the casino, most games are not working in the instant play. I am very fearful this will discourage players

It now looks like even fewer games can be played on my desktop than 1-2 weeks ago or the problem is intermittent.

Here is the list of the games that today worked for me:
Achilles
Bubble Bubble 2
Caesar’s Empire
Cleopatra’s Gold
Enchanted Garden 2
Eternal Love
Fucanglong
Gemtopia
Purrfect Pets
Ritchie Valens La Bamba
Samba Sunset
Texan Tycoon

This list is much shorter than the ones that give me the error code.
BTW. Can you see any pattern?

Update:

I've tried the games on another, much newer puter, and all slots played OK.
Still strange.

Maybe that is the reason for the many players who play once and disappear.

That is EXACTLY my fear, and the reason I started this thread in the first place.

Frankly I am totally shocked that a huge company like RTG, with probably MILLIONS of players world-wide, would allow something like this to happen.
The two casino reps I have spoken to seem to think this is no big deal - but I bet they will change their tune if the casinos start seeing a drop-off in player deposits...!

Your list comprised more than HALF OF ALL THEIR SLOTS - including most of my personal favourites :mad:

Did they say if they will be converting these old games to a new format so they can be played in the future?

I'd like to know the amount of wins from players who played these games over the past quarter of a century that never saw any of their winnings.

RTG... The Godfather of deposit only casinos. Perhaps their dispute service can help fixing the games again.

Has there been any word from Realtime Gaming if they are going to re-add the games?
