William Hill admits to having THEIR OWN BOTS playing on ipoker

How retarded is this?!



Link to 2+2

They now have "10.1.1.4 in games offered via the Website which benefit from more players or greater liquidity we may deploy electronic players (known as robots, and whose usernames will be "bot") who are pre-programmed to play and join in with the game in order to assist the liquidity or the number of players gaming although we will not use bots without making such usage clear to You" in their TC.

I just barfed a little in my mouth.
I wonder if more sites have their own bots playing? And I also wonder if the bots might know things that human players don't...scary shit right there.


UPDATE:
ipoker now says (official statement) that the thread was a midunderstanding since the t&c quote is from their casino/skill games. But why would the support confirm some user as bots? Surely they can't be that stupid? (not sure if this is a question I want an answer to:D)

  1. If we know they are bots that's fun. Logic>>>>>>>pre programmed serious shit (except they hit all the time,lol).

    The problem starts if we don't know they are bots :S

  2. not sure if serioous; been beating the games since 2006? :P
    anyway, I just think it's wrong. you don't know if the bots can see your hole cards or whatever.

    they say in their tc that they are there to keep tables going and shit, so why do they put the bots in mtts? and where does the bot money go?


    no, I will not play on sites that has house bots. and well, "player bots" have been a problem on ipoker for as long as I can remember also, they (ipoker) simply don't give a fuck as long as they get rake. ;) but most of those bots are very easy to spot/exploit. house bots however, who knows. :/

    Ik hate bots, the site where im playing (everest) has also 2 clear bots. Been mailing support over and over and they just don't give a damn.

    Those bots just raking in rakeback, playing 35bb push/fold retard poker, being annoying as shit and 18 hours a day. =\
