Just to give some background on the issue.

The problem comes from the fact that Captain Jack app is using Flash. Flash is now pretty much obsolete technology. Its very slow, resource heavy and vulnerable so its a huge security risk for anyone still using it. Even Adobe announced they will stop supporting it by the 2020. Along with them, Google has been trying to push it out of use ever since HTML5 was published.

Google also announced Chrome will completely block Flash (I guess it finally happened?). As for other browsers, Firefox and Edge are pretty much blocking it, but they give you an option to temporary enable it on the site you want.

So this is your fix for now, use Firefox, Internet Explorer or Edge, until IGG does something...

You can also open your browser's console (F12), type play() and hit enter. After that refresh the page and you can claim your reward. There will be no wheel spinning animation though.
