According to Richard Marcus, online poker rooms are filled with cheats, and it is only going to get worse.
Marcus knows what he is talking about when it comes to defrauding casinos; he and his team of experts did so for 25 years, in Atlantic
City, Monte Carlo, London and Las Vegas, raking in a reputed $5 million. He now writes books on his experiences, and he warns that
online cheating is much easier than live casinos.
"There is so much cheating going on," said Marcus. "Within a short amount of time we are going to see about one in a hundred people
playing honestly. The rest will be using bots or it will be computers playing against computers."
At least one poker site refutes this claim, as a spokesman for Party Poker.com put it; "I can't speak for other sites but the people
sitting there on our virtual poker tables are very real."
