10. Ongame Poker Rules
10.1 Prohibited Program policy
10.1.1 Background and purpose
10.1.2 We recognize that people want to become better poker players so they can improve their performance at our tables. There are a number of techniques that can be used to achieve this goal. In our opinion, not all of the existent tools are consistent with "fair play". The purpose of this policy is to separate acceptable techniques of performance improvement from techniques that are prohibited at Redbet.
10.1.3 First of all, we would like to emphasize that education and experience are the strongest ways to develop a more successful game. We encourage this, and recommend worthwhile books, articles and forum engagement for players interested in improving.
10.1.4 We also recognize that numerous software tools are available which promise to help players improve their game performance. After consultation with many of our players, including professional poker players and top poker industry experts, we have decided to clearly separate these programs into two categories:
- Software tools that provide a fair advantage to a player and are allowed;
- Software tools that provide an unfair advantage to a player and are prohibited.
10.1.5 We both warn and promise players that we have a strict policy towards the use of prohibited programs. We have a zero-tolerance policy in effect against "poker bot" usage, data mining*, collusion and other forms of cheating.
10.1.6 We want to keep our games fair for everyone and will take necessary measures to ensure this. For this reason, we reserve the right to change this policy at any time and at our own discretion.
10.2 Poker Bots
10.2.1 We believe that players who use automated "poker bot" programs to make decisions or take actions on their behalf in games are cheating. All players must be comfortable and secure that they are technologically equal in our card room. To ensure this, we have banned the use of these programs.
10.2.2 To be clear, players are prohibited from operating these programs or allowing these programs to operate while logged into their accounts. This prohibition includes all games, including tournaments and ring games, for all currencies, including real money and play money.
10.2.3 Only humans are permitted to play on our site. Artificially-intelligent programs, processes, applications and all other forms of software and hardware - including "Poker Bots" or "Auto Folders" - are prohibited from making game decisions or taking game action on our site, either under their own auspices or under the supervision of a human.
10.3 Data Mining and Statistical Analysis
10.3.1 Through analysis of hand histories, players can learn about patterns, strengths and weaknesses in their game play (and that of their opponents), and determine areas for improvement. We provide comprehensive hand history statistics in our software, but recognize some players want more specific details than that.
10.3.2 Programs that aggregate hand histories to profile a player's own play and/or the play of opponent players at the same poker table are allowed.
10.3.3 PokerTracker and Holdem Manager, for example, are programs that provide detailed statistical analysis of hand histories for beneficial review. As well as personal game play analysis, these programs also compile and profile a player's opponents' play. This is similar to how meticulous players might use our “Player Notes” feature after every hand to compile their own profiles on opponents. As such, these programs are allowed.
10.3.4 Conversely, programs that use statistics not collected by the player himself/herself through ordinary, fair game play, are not allowed. Programs that share data are not allowed. Acquiring hand history in bulk from a third party and use this data in another third party software is also prohibited.
10.3.5 Further, we do not allow players to collude, share hole card information or team up against other players. We also prohibit the use of any software program that facilitates the sharing of this information or player profiles.
10.3.6 PokerEdge and CardAnalyzer, for example, are programs that compile player profiles in a database and then sell subscription access to their systems. These programs allow players to access profile information on players they have never played against, and we believe this provides an unfair advantage. As such, these programs are prohibited.
10.4 Examples of acceptable programs
10.4.1 Acceptable programs include, but are not limited to:
10.4.2 GameTime+, PokerAce Heads Up, PokerOffice, PokerTracker, PokerWeapon, Texas Calculatem
10.5 Examples of prohibited programs
10.5.1 Prohibited programs include, but are not limited to:
10.5.2 PokerEdge, PokerProphercy, PokiBot, StarSpy, WinHoldem
10.6 Supervision and sanctions
10.6.1 We currently have sophisticated processes in place to detect and prevent the use of prohibited programs. This technology is an extension of our anti-collusion security systems, and is deeply integrated with multiple tiers of our client and server architecture.
10.6.2 It is in our collective interest to ensure the safety and integrity of the game and this is part of the security we offer all our players.
10.6.3 We reserve the right to close accounts, seize funds and ban players from playing at Redbet.com for using prohibited programs or cheating.
10.7 More information
10.7.1 Ongame Network nor Redbet does not actively endorse or support any of the listed third party programs, nor do we guarantee anything regarding functionality, reliability/stability or safety of any of the programs.
10.7.2 If you are considering using a program that is not on this list, please e-mail support with information about the program, including its name and a URL where we can find it. After we review it, we will make a decision about whether or not it is allowed.
10.7.3 Programs with the main purpose to exploit or target recreational players will be prohibited in order to maintain a healthy poker ecology. Ongame Network has the right to on a case by case basis classify certain programs as detrimental to our environment and accordingly prohibit them.

10.10 MAP - Multi Account Policy
10.10.1 Ongame Network allows players to register accounts with multiple Network Operators, but has the policy that an individual may only register and play for any single tournament from one of these accounts.
10.10.2 Any player who plays in a tournament from multiple player accounts will be in violation of this Multi Account Policy (MAP) and suffer the following consequences:
- They will be disqualified from a tournament in-progress if the violation is detected in real-time.
- All money in all their player accounts with Ongame Network operators will be confiscated, and the accounts closed.
- They will be permanently banned from playing on Ongame Network.
10.10.3 When these banned players are caught, their money will be confiscated and their account closed.
10.10.4 At Ongame Network's discretion, tournament pay-outs (the distribution of tournament prize monies to winners) can be held for up to 14 days if an investigation is required (though we will try to conclude all investigations within 72 hours). Investigations are predicated on automatic processes and manual checks conducted by separate support and security teams both during and after tournaments.
10.10.5 Where an investigation determines there is or has been a violation of the MAP, all accounts suspected of being involved may be frozen for the duration of the investigation. This means that players will not be able to log in or play, and they will not be able to withdraw or transfer funds. We recognize that this will be an inconvenience and we regret that this may affect innocent players.
10.10.6 Where an investigation requires that tournament pay-outs be held pending distribution to winners, Ongame Network will endeavour to communicate this to all players involved shortly after the tournament concludes.
10.10.7 Ongame Network has the policy of not sharing the results of its investigations. However, where appropriate, both the results and actions being taken will be made available to players through Ongame Network Operators websites. If prizes need to be redistributed, this information will be provided directly to players.
10.10.8 Ongame Network recognizes that it is critically important to provide safe gaming for all our players, and to ensure that our card room is fair. We go to great lengths to eliminate all unfair advantages and are removing the potential advantage provided by using multiple accounts to register for a tournament
10.10.9We also want to be clear that cheating of any kind will absolutely not be tolerated.
11. Tournament Collusion Refund Policy
11.1 This Tournament Collusion Refund Policy is an attachment to the Redbet Terms of Service and Ongame Network's Multi Account Policy. As such it cannot be reviewed as a stand-alone policy nor does it overrule these documents in case of confliction. Please read through the above two documents before proceeding.
11.2 This Tournament Collusion Refund Policy covers Redbet accounts and Redbet accounts only. Accounts affiliated with other operators within the network will not benefit from it.
11.3 This Tournament Collusion Refund Policy details reimbursement rules in cases of confirmed tournament collusion. The punitive measures enforced upon caught colluders - although mentioned - are regulated by the MAP.
11.4 This Tournament Collusion Refund Policy has been engineered to provide just treatment in the case of cheating being determined in tournaments. All decisions will be made by Redbet and cannot be overruled. Detailed information regarding investigations “ and the investigations made by the Ongame Network Security Team - will be released at the investigators discretion.
11.5 The Tournament Collusion Refund Policy deals with three separate types of tournament collusion; checkdowns, chip dumping and co-op play (multi-accounting).
12.1 Checking down can occur when two or more players call an all-in player. On Redbet it is against the rules and ethics of the game of poker to expressively agree upon this conduct. Equally it is against the rules to suggest such an action. However, merely suggesting it does not equate collusion.
12.2 Players found guilty of verbally agreeing to not play each other in a hand with the explicit intent of maximizing the chance of eliminating a third player will receive a warning. Repeat offenders risk having their prize money confiscated.
13. Chip Dumping
13.1 Tournament chip dumping is defined as a situation where one player purposely loses chips to another player with the sole intent of increasing their combined chances of winning prize money. Chip Dumping will incur a permanent ban of all involved accounts and the forfeit of the total value of prize money.
14. Co-op Play (multi-accounting)
14.1 Co-op play is defined as situations where one or more players enter a total of two or more accounts into a tournament (scheduled or Sit & Go) and are sharing, or attempting to share, information about hands or players between them. Sharing information includes playing the accounts from the same computer, using online messaging services or any other form of off- or online communication.
14.2 All co-op play accounts will be permanently banned and risk, based on the MAP, having their prize money and their entire bankroll confiscated. In all cases of multi-account collusion a full investigation of related accounts will also be initiated. The individuals behind all caught accounts are not welcome to play on Redbet under any circumstances.
