Well, it's finally started... Meet the StrikeSapphire SINGULARITY.
You probably didn't expect a Bitcoin casino to be the first place your consciousness would merge with the great AI in the cloud for fun and profit, right? Or maybe you did?
Either way... Bitcoin Land is full of surprises.
A little history. About 3 years ago I wrote a poker bot -- nothing too complicated, just something to keep people playing when no one was on the site. It's a pretty straightforward piece of RESTful PHP with a little monte carlo routine and a couple gizmos -- but the idea behind it was to be able to program its personality with nothing more than a player's hand history off of our site.
The first of our players to finally qualify for this - by having enough play time, enough status points, and winning enough poker hands - did so last night. A round of applause please for Bonjin
... who just became the first player in casino history to have his subconscious mind uploaded into a poker bot of his very own! Bonjin played his bot for a bit, to test it out (we won't get into details, but it held its own) ... and now his bot is live in prime time, playing with our house money. Best part? 10% of whatever it wins goes to Bonjin.
Including what it wins from your bot, should you be awesome enough to get one of your own.
So... Want to have a bot made of your own personality, that makes money for you while you're asleep? StrikeSapphire is the only poker site in the known universe to offer it... and here's what you have to do:
1. Play at least 20,000 hands of poker in real-money ring games or tournaments (including freerolls)
2. Earn more than 10,000 player points since opening your account
3. Have a silver star
4. Have won more showdowns 1-on-1 than you've lost.
Think you can do that? Or have done it? Contact help (at) strikesapphire.com for more info...
BTW Someone voted we were slow to pay out?
If anyone had a problem with a payout, let me know; there are only two of us who handle all of them, and I think the slowest one so far has been 8 hours...
