iPoker switches to opt-in system


We’re sorry to announce that the iPoker network, which consists of skins such as Everest Poker, Poker770 and William Hill has chosen to switch to a FullTilt style opt-in system, where by all results from games with less than 30 players are hidden by default, until that player opts in. Opting in and out is now a very simply process of finding the special SharkScope cash table in the iPoker client and typing either optin or optout in the chat box.

The changes will affect both the SharkScope website and the SharkScope HUD, but ensures that SharkScope and all its tools continue to be fully permitted by the iPoker network.

Details of the opt-in and opt-out system can be found here:



iPoker players which are currently listed in our leaderboards will be automatically considered opted-in for the next 3 months, to give them time to opt-in manually during that time without losing their place on those leaderboards.

Whilst in the short term these rule changes do reduce the amount of information available to most users with regards to looking at other iPoker player statistics, there are still many ways SharkScope can still be used effectively and in particular users should review the VS Me functionality:

  • Versus Me Functionality

    Once you have configured your own player names if you search a player who has not opted in yet, or even has blocked their name, you will see the full statistics derived from the games that you have played against that player.

Please bear with us during the transition to this new system as It will take a little time for us to get to the critical mass of players opted-in and we appreciate your patience. However if you are a current subscriber and wish to discuss your subscription please contact support@sharkscope.com.
