Cheating and hacking is against the Zynga TOS:

Have you tried playing Zynga Poker? Social networking websites like Facebook, Myspace, Bebo, Tagged, and even Yahoo offers Zynga Poker which is an online poker game that doesn’t involve gambling (you play of free cheaps and not on money). You can play many poker variations like Texas Hold’em, Tournaments and even VIP tables.

Just like playing in real poker, the game requires chips or casino gold (which again you get for free). Playing Zynga poker, is great way to improve your poker skills while easing your boredom without risking your bank account :)

It turns out that more than 30 million players have fun with Zynga poker and tend to play daily. Along with its popularity, some cheats, bots, and software also exist which offer automation in the process of playing Zynga Poker. And for some players desiring to gain more chips and win easily, it might sound as a good and fast solution, these bots also known as “Poker Bots” or “Zynga Poker Bots”.

Zynga Poker Bot is a program desiged to automate the process of playing poker on Zynga. These bots sometime even offer features like playing on selected pre-flop hands, calculates odds, allows custom profile and more. But the questions is – is it legal?

Well, as far as law is concerned it depends on the country the bot is being executed from, but one this is for sure: it’s against Zynga TOS.

Take a glimpse at the Zyngas TOS. Reviewing the TOS, it says that cheating and hacking is not allowed. These cover “cheats, exploits, automation software, bots, hacks, mods or any unauthorized third-party software designed to modify or interfere with the Service, any Zynga Game or any Zynga game experience” (source: terms of service).

This means that using poker bots in your game is against Zynga’s rule and terms of service. Players which are detected using these bots will get banned and lose all their chips!  In fact, there were players who had already violated these terms of service, thus, they are not able to access their account any more. For those who experience this kind of suspension, its better to contact Zynga regarding the issue (hoping that the reason is other then being detected as violating their TOS, cause in that case your account is toasted).

On the other hand, there is still an advanced artificial intelligence software that can help you with your game, give you an advantage over your opponents and using it is not against ZYNGA TOS. PokerBuddy Pro is a software that provides players advice in real-time and throughout their game. PokerBuddy helps you winning more times, using its advanced poker AI it will help you out in tough decisions and train you to play better on Zynga poker. The cool thing about it is that it’s free to use and not breaking any TOS rules.
