888 Poker Allowed 3rd Party Software
888 Poker strictly forbids the use of any software or program which uses artificial intelligence. This includes all programs known generally as “bots” which make decisions on behalf of players.
Programs which act to support the 888 software, for example, creating shortcut key combinations for standard actions, or manage the way tables are laid out on screen are allowed.
Database programs such as Hold’em Manager and PokerTracker are allowed and players may use Heads-Up Displays (HUDs) based on such databases.
For players who aren’t familiar with these tools, they allow you to overlay a set of statistics for each player on the table where you are playing. These stats are pulled from the database of hands which you have played and can only show numbers based on your experience with the other players at the table.
Post-game analysis is made much easier by using a database program which will allow you to replay selected hands that you think you played particularly well or badly.
Poker support programs that calculate odds during a hand are also allowed.
If you are in any doubt about whether a program is permitted or not, you should contact the 888 Member Support Team using the Online Help function.
