Patch Notes


Below are all updates, changes and fixes made to Casino Bot.

  • Added captchas to the ".spin" command and other game commands to make self botting more difficult
  • Fixed bot mentions and clickable links not working for newly added commands
  • Made ".spin" more interesting
  • Added media triggers! Say "Trigger Name Here => Media" to use!
    Please note that media commands will expire if they are not used for 28 consecutive days (I don't have unlimited space).
  • Increased .slot command payout rates
  • Fixed 100 private not working
  • Text based commands added from now on will correctly preserve any custom Kik emotes you use!
    Use the "Unlock all emoticons" command in Blue Kik and try it out!
  • Added 100 member private and publics back
  • Miscellaneous Anti-Bot API improvements! Thank you for using it to remove bots from your group in Blue Kik!
  • The "Video" command now sends videos (dislikes were patched by YouTube, making the stats useless)
  • Fixed some typos in the bot responses
  • Adjusted anti bot algorithm (from now on, this also updates the algorithm in the Casino Anti Bot API)
  • Added more in depth profile information to the "Lookup" command on Pirho Bot
  • Pirho Bot is now able to lookup group #hashtags that have been hidden or barred from searching
  • Added "Video" command. Use "Video [YouTube URL or search term]" to get information about a video.
    Please note, the ability to see dislikes will be patched / removed by Google on December 13th, 2021. After that, dislike counts won't be visible. So make sure to use it now before it is gone!
  • Beginning of work on the Casino Anti-Bot API! (in beta but fully working and functional) It will be used in Blue Kik first, but may be open to others later and will be expanded in the future to add more capabilities. The goal of the API is to be able to collectively cut down on spam bots and keep them out of your groups, and be able to instantly update the detection if / when the bots change tactics.
  • If Casino Bot is banned, it will automatically back up all your settings, and automatically restore them when you add a new bot to your group. If your settings did not automatically restore, use the "Casino import" command, and your backup should be there.
  • More bot detection improvements
  • Added detection for 2 new exploits
  • Fixed exploit detection sometimes showing the JID of the sender instead of the name
  • Casino Bot will now automatically back up your group data if it is removed or if you use "Casino leave".
    Also, when you add any Casino bot to your group, it will automatically import the backup for that group if it's available.
    This makes switching bots easier as you don't need to redo the settings.
  • Fixed YouTube video thumbnails having a 4:3 aspect ratio when the videos are 16:9
  • Fixed YouTube videos being corrupted or otherwise unplayable on iOS devices
  • Fixed being unable to use the seek bar for YouTube videos on Android devices
  • Optimized video and audio quality for YouTube videos. Please note the bigger the video is, the more Casino Bot will decrease the quality in order to stay under file limits
  • Added new commands: "YT" "YouTube""Song".
    These commands allow you to request a YouTube video using a direct URL or a search term and Casino Bot will send the video to the chat.
    Read more about it in the commands list here
    Please note this feature is in beta and is subject to changes / restrictions.
  • Bot detection improvements.
  • Added "48 ban last" command. This will 48 ban the last user that left the group or was removed / banned / unbanned.
  • Fixed a rare bug that causes the bot to not respond (get stuck) due to Kik server issues. If the bot is stuck, it will restart itself within a few seconds.
  • Started work on new video / audio commands
  • Bot detection improvements
  • If you are removed upon join for being detected as a spam bot, rejoining within a short time frame will no longer remove you again
  • Improved the "check" command for Pirho Bot by adding more known accounts to the list and showing the actual username for accounts that aren't spam bots
  • Improvements / bug fixes for the "Forward" command
  • Improvements to the bot detection to reduce false positives and to detect more new bot types./li>
  • When someone blacklisted tries to enter your group, the removal message will be sent after removing the blacklisted user. This is done to prevent them from knowing they are blacklisted.
  • Added the "Forward" command. Use this in a group if you are under 12 hour media restrictions, as Casino Bot always works under 12 hour rule.
    If you have Android you can get Blue Kik which gets rid of that restriction and is free. Download it here
  • Fixed anti annoy, disallow noobs, and other features not working in private groups
  • Updated the commands page
  • Added "Blacklist" and "Unblacklist" commands. Check them out in the commands list here
  • If you add a Casino Bot to your group that is currently full, it will automatically replace it with a bot that's not full. Let me know if you have any issues
    Note: sometimes the member list will not show the new Casino bot. If this happens, restarting the app usually fixes the issue.

  • How to use: Roll -> "@roll d8"
  • Then call the command by saying "Roll" like you normally would.
  • Supported makeshift commands:
    - "d8" (number)
    - "1000" (random number between 1 - 1000)
    - "?" (anything with a question mark will pick someone random in the group)

  • Re-programmed admins / talkers / activity lists, no longer gives an error on names saying to try again
