27.4.1 Anti-Cheating Policy
We are committed to preventing the use of unfair practices in the Gaming Facilities, including but not limited to player collusion, non-human players (bots), chip-dumping, scripting and other forms of inappropriate behaviour that provide players with an unfair advantage (Unfair Advantage Policy) over other players on the site. We are also committed to detecting and preventing the use of software programs which are designed to enable artificial intelligence to play on Our Platforms including, but not limited to, opponent-profiling, cheating software or anything else that We deem enables You to have an unfair advantage over other players not using such programs or systems ('AI Software'). You acknowledge that We will take measures to detect and prevent the use of such programs and AI Software using methods (including but not limited to reading the list of currently running programs on a player's computer) and You agree not to use any AI Software and/or any such programs. We will not keep records of Our monitoring save for the cases where we detect using the AI Software. In the event that We suspect that a player has been involved in any practices outlined in this Clause 27.4 or any other practices which We deem to be unfair or fraudulent, We reserve a right, in Our sole discretion, to block their account and withhold available funds from within such accounts. No player shall have the right to require Us to take any other steps against players suspected of collusion, cheating, scripting or any other form of unfair or fraudulent behaviour.
27.4.2 Collusion and Cheating
Collusion occurs when two or more players attempt to gain an unfair advantage by sharing knowledge of their cards or other information. Any player who in our reasonable opinion colludes or attempts to collude with any other player while using the Facilities may be permanently banned from using the Facilities or the software, their account may be terminated immediately and We shall be entitled to withhold all monies in such player's account. If You suspect that any player is colluding with another or cheating, You can contact us via email at email@example.com.
27.4.3 Automatic Players (Bots)
The use of artificial intelligence which plays without human intervention or reduces the requirement of a human playing including, without limitation, “robots”, is strictly forbidden in connection with Our Facilities.
