Microgaming to Prevent Data Mining
Posted on February 1, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
Last week a lot of trouble had arised regarding the new terms set by European facing poker networks regarding the new poker ecology system also know as the popular Fish Vs Shark ratio which in reality penalizes poker network licensees for not managing to bring losing players to the tables which will overall keep the network balanced in terms of Fishy players opposed to Sharks playing at the tables. The new terms were heavily discussed after VC Poker was traced to be closing accounts of winning players which just came to add up to announcements made reagrding small online poker rooms which have been forced to sell out to bigger operators due to inability to keep competitive after fines they have been introduced by their network management for not being able to deliver fishy players to the tables.
Microgaming which amongst others host Ladbrokes Poker and Cool Hand Poker has announced that it is looking in to preventing data mining which will help the overall ecology in its poker rooms which is just a more friendly way to say “Something has to be done with the Sharks and we got to start somewhere”. The new measuers will be introducing a measure which will be disallowing hand histories to be stored on player’s computers, a measure that is hoping to eliminate big players from reversing and rehearsing hands played which of course helps tracking patterns of play of opponents. Concern has also been raised accordingly to various tracking software currently available online which help players raise their game by revising hand history.
Andrew Clucas, Head of Poker at Microgaming Software Systems, commented: “Concern has been rising over the long-term effect of third party software upon the poker industry as a whole, and in particular the negative effect it has on the recreational player demographic. The decision to put a stop to the practice of datamining on the Poker Network is part of Microgaming’s overarching network strategy to support operators in attracting and retaining recreational players. It further demonstrates commitment in providing a secure and fair playing environment.”
This comes to add up to the overall marketing campaign run by Microgaming powered Cool Hand Poker which is heavily promoting both online and offline NO Sharks No Hustlers; although the Microgaming Network has been reported on several occasions by respected online poker portals that it is flooding with sharks.
