Controversy and Bugs
The 2007 version of Hoyle Casino was plagued by a bug in the Craps game. A player would place a bet, and then the game would freeze for 30 seconds before continuing. This caused a lot of controversy. Unfortunately, Encore was not able to fix this bug ultimately leaving customers angry. Their only recourse was to visit the Encore USA website and submit a refund request for the software. This bug was fixed however in Hoyle Casino 2008.[ ]
