Casino Bot was created in August of 2020 to help automate daily tasks, and to include powerful features to help keep spam bots out, easily moderate your group chats, play games, and make Kik a better experience.
It was created out of a desire to make something better and with premium features and better bot detection, as everything that existed prior was missing features that I wanted, such as removing lurkers and new accounts, detecting bots reliably, and detecting hack attempts, and those that did have premium features that I wanted charged a fee to do so.
With the desire to add features I wanted to make my own bot that had the features I wanted and wanting to give the ability for others to use these needed features without needing to pay, Casino Bot was created.
Casino Bot was programmed from scratch in Java, and the API has been also developed by me in Java. Some parts of the bot interop with Python when needed.
In Blue Kik, the profile pic of the bot will have a star in the bottom left corner when it sends a message.
If it ever messages you on its own, it is probably a fake and should not be used.
The bot only stores information required for it to function and be used to manage groups.
Casino Bot stores permanently: Backups, group settings, talkers / activity, and your game stats.
Casino Bot stores temporarily: Exploit detections, and bot detections to help identify new patterns and get rid of them faster to help fight against spam.
When the bot leaves or is removed from the group, the name, hashtag and member list of the group is deleted.
For media triggers, Casino Bot saves the content attachment to be resent. The image or video file itself is hosted by Kik, and therefore only the URL to the content is saved. The media trigger attachments and URLs to the content are deleted from Casino Bot if you either delete the command or you don't use the command for 30 days. NSFW detection may be used for these features. Until further notice, the detection is done locally and is not shared with any third party or API.
Casino Bot and its creator will never save, read or share: Your messages, such as photos, videos, stickers, gifs, etc (unless you set them as a trigger).
Also, Casino Bot and its creator will never sell or share any information about your use of the bot, what groups you use it in, or messages you send to it to anyone for any reason. All data described above is only used for the group management features, and is not used for any other purpose.
If you send messages too quickly, the bot will consider it as spam and ignore messages from you for a few hours.
If this happens, wait a few hours and it will respond again, and avoid spamming in the future to prevent this from occurring.
To protect Casino Bot from bad actors, it may leave groups I believe are illicit, including (but not limited to) duplicate spam groups, illegal "marketplace" groups, or any group remotely related to underage content.
If this happens in your group, and you believe it is in error, you can PM me on Telegram
If the bot does not respond to you, try saying "Admins"
If you are admin and it still does not respond, try adding someone else to the group, it will usually fix the issue.
Casino Bot actively checks for spam bots in groups and removes them when found.
I cannot get into detail exactly how it works because the bot makers are known to change their bots to get around detections.
Basically, it checks for bot-like accounts and behavior, and when found they are silently removed.
This is enabled by default for all public groups, and is frequently updated to counter new techniques to avoid detection.
No, as one bot is fine to do everything by itself. Casino will remove the added bot or leave, so do not do this.
