    Score rollover detection broken

    TPA doesn't seem to detect any score rollover on this table properly. I had a game where the score should've been 30.9 billion, but it came up as 1.9 billion.

    Definitely not a problem for most players, but it would be nice if it was fixed.

    EDIT: Here's a screenshot of a score that rolled over once and should be 13,743,681,760

    UP, still not fixed and it's really a pain, with the jackpots growing up it's much easier than on most of others tables to go to the maximum, a bit more than an hour to go to 10B. So here it's just a game of beeing as close as possible of 10b, a pity for this good table. Please FS guys do something about it :/

    A 10B rollover score is possible. After a few failed attempts to beat the top score close to 10B I've noticed that every game with a few hundred points over 10B came as a 1B+ score. TPA replace the real billion digit with the counter how often you rollover the 10B. For a 10B+ leaderboard score you need 100B real points. This real score is 116,916,441,230 and came as 11,916,441,230 to the leaderboard, eleven times rolled over, the 6B digit is replaced by the rollover counter.

    This wasn't in our database so im putting it and hopefully we can resolve it.

    And hopefully resolve it in less than 3 years.

    Here's a leap in logic, so if cheated scores on BoP can reached quintillions on the leaderboard previously... perhaps the 999B section on attack from mars or the next generation just needs to get 100T to get 1 Trillion?

    I'll test this offline.

    What annoys me is that someone can "casually" score 116B on Fish Tales (not exactly the easiest table in TPA) just to prove it's possible to register a score over 10B

    Out of interest, is there a cap on the Jackpot and Super Jackpot scores? My skills have only got me to around 100M regular Jackpots and 300M or 400M Supers.

    Yes, there's a cap. The Jackpots max at 120,180 and 240M, the Super Jackpot at 600M.
