Last Updated: February 10, 2023
With all the cheating poker scandals in the news, now is a great time to look at another potential threat to the industry – bots.
A bot is a computer program that plays a game with or against you. Bots are prevalent in lots of apps. If you’ve ever played a game ‘against the computer,’ you’ve been playing a bot.
Most bots only exist as entertainment or when a human opponent isn’t available. These basic bots are common and don’t require much processing power.
