Are your cards really random?
Absolutely! We use Sun Microsystem's SecureRandom function for Java.
Thorough testing and evaluation of the www.roundersclubsportsbook.com poker software by
third party auditing companies has found that:
*There was no statistical bias in cards dealt as pocket
*There was no statistical bias in cards dealt to any of the board
*There were no statistical differences in the cards dealt to games
involving experienced players and the cards dealt to games involving new
We have also a database over the expected value for all
of the played real money hands at our site. Or you can view the list of
the pocket cards ranked by value or profit under Expected Value
You can also search for the results of each starting
cards combination. You can also view a statistical analysis of 500,000
real money hands dealt in the Texas Hold'em poker game. You can find
this information in the Poker School section under Card Stats.
If you are still not convinced, there are links to the
raw data (the hand histories) on the Poker School page, if you would
like to conduct your own tests.
Do your cards favour certain
Absolutely not! Our cards are checked and proven to be completely
random, and there is no reason why we would favour any player, since you
do not play poker against the house, but other players!
Is it possible to predict the
Absolutely not! Our server sends out information only on a need-to-know
basis, which means that there is no way to predict any coming cards or
the other players' cards. The cards are not calculated until the very
moment before they are sent out, so there is no way to know them
in-advance (because they don't even "exist" in-advance). All sent
information is also heavily encrypted.
What are abusive votes? How do
Players in play-money ring games can vote off an abusive player by
casting "abusive votes". This is a way of letting players "police" the
tables themselves when they feel there is a need to do so.
A player who receives 60-70% of abusive votes or more
from the rest at the table will be removed. You can cast a vote by click
on the avatar and selecting "vote off table". To prevent this function
from being abused, each player is only allowed to cast three votes
within a day.
What can I do if a player at
the table is abusive?
You can choose to "mute" this player by click on his/her avatar and
selecting "mute". You will then filter out whatever the player types in
the table chat and not see them.
If most of the players present feel that the abusive
player is causing too much nuisance, you can also vote him off the table.
May I play with more than one
account? Just for play-money?
For security reasons, we allow only one www.roundersclubsportsbook.com account per
player and one real-money account per household. You can play for both
real-money and play-money with the same account, hence there is no need
to create more that one.
May I pass chips to another
player by deliberately losing to him?
No. Passing/receiving chips to and from another player with intent is a
serious offence at www.roundersclubsportsbook.com, play-money and real-money alike.
