Virtual players at
the virtual casinos
Not so long ago, people went to
brick and mortar casinos for some gambling fun. They dressed up
nicely, picked up their friends and went to a fancy casino, and
had a great night out. These nights still exist, but ever since
the upcoming of online casinos, they became a lot rarer.
Nowadays, you can just stay in your pajamas or even your
underwear, log on to one of the thousands of online casinos on
the internet and start playing your favorite online casinos game
with players from all over the world. Sure, this can be just as
much fun, but now there is something new on the horizon:
gambling bots. Bots are computerized players, designed to play
on behalf of the real live players. The question is; why would
you let a robot play all the great online casinos games? What's
the fun in that?
It seems that the human edge is disappearing, not only on the
side of online casinos, where computerized dealers serve the
players, but even the players themselves become computerized.
In 2006, the phenomenon of online casinos bots will become more
and more popular with the players. It’s not really a robot
sitting behind you're computer, it's a software, which you can
buy in several places on the internet, which you install on your
computer and pretends to be you. It's using your money for
wagering in online casinos. This has many advantages; a robot
doesn't get tired, isn't influenced by any emotions and (even
though it's hard to accept for many) they are smarter than we
are. There is, however, a big disadvantage; they are taking away
Some might say, that the biggest fun of online casinos, is
actually winning a lot of money while playing them. Other
gambling experts say this is not fun, this means you're
addicted. The truth lies probably somewhere in the middle. The
essential goal of playing in online casinos (same as in
land-based casinos) is to enjoy and have a good time, winning is
something that adds to having a good time.
The operators of the online casinos are taking the bots very
serious and they are trying to assure players a bot-free
environment in their online casinos. This is, however, hard to
achieve, since they act like real players.
CptPokr is the latest software or casino bot from Win Hold'em.
This bot is designed to win online casinos games for players, so
that the players don't have to make any crucial decisions. The
bot is applying mathematical strategy in the online casinos, and
is supposed to come up with the best possible play given all the
options and choices while playing games in online casinos.
However you look at it, it's still a strange concept. Would you
send a computerized person to a land-based casino, pick up your
friends' robots and let them go to the casino to have a great
time, while gambling with your money?
