Betmaker Launches Bot-Free Poker Rooms

21 September 2005

COSTA RICA -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Betmaker, one of the Web's most trusted sports books, has added poker to its roster of online wagering options. Betmaker, renowned for its solid reputation for delivering secure betting services, is also assuring users a bot-free playing environment.

A veteran in the gambling industry, Betmaker offers categories such as Sportsbook, Casino and Racing. The company recently unveiled their new and improved homepage at and now includes popular poker games such as: Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha High/Low, 7 Card Stud and 7 Card Stud High/Low. The site offers a different tournament every hour, and more than 150 tournaments per week.

To keep customers from losing an unfair game, Betmaker has taken precautions to deal with the current onset of auto-playing bots at virtual poker tables. Some of these precautions include regularly altering the graphic interface and data transfer code.

"Automated programs posing as real players pose possibly the largest obstacle to keeping online poker games fair and honest," says Silvia Vasquez, General Manager of Betmaker. "We encourage our players to chat with other players, and experiment with the playing style to see if anyone else at the table might be a bot."

Betmaker feels that the addition of new poker rooms, poker tournaments, and bot protection to their already impressive sports-gambling offering cements their service as one of the premier casinos on the Web.

"Our players like to play with us because playing on poker-focused sites is a losing proposition for the recreational player," said Silvia. "Sharks and professional players are having a field day with casual poker players. At Betmaker, we are encouraging a sportsbook-only network that will level the playing field for our recreational players, and offer a fair and complete online gambling experience."
