Recently Bodog Poker announced an upgrade to its lobby, which will prevent various data sites from accessing information on player numbers.
According to the company the player numbers data, which was previously available was benefitting professional poker players at the expense of recreational players.
The new feature, Recreational Poker Model, will remove the table information, thus making it less attractive to professional players and safer for intermediate and beginner levels of poker fans. By the end of this year, individual statistics, live and history stats will also be no longer available to data sites.
Vice President of Bodog Poker Network, Jonas Odman, had the following comments: ”It is vital for the online poker industry that the depositing players are put first rather than the high raking professionals who rarely, if ever, add new money to the pot. This is the first in a long line of steps that will make Bodog’s Recreational Poker Model the best place for the casual player to enjoy the game again.”
He went on to add: "Later in the year we will have some additional features that we will roll out along with the new software which we are confident will make the playability of the site one of the best in the industry.”
