SpadeIT Offers Tools for Ongame Network Rooms

Although there are several different tools that can be used for major poker sites such as PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, the number that are available for other sites and networks can be lacking. In particular, for rooms of the fifth ranked online poker network, Ongame, there doesn’t seem to be very much in the way of data collection or table selection software. There’s a company that is looking to change that, however, through tools for not just Texas Hold‘em, but also for Omaha.

SpadeIt has been creating software that not only can be used on major rooms, but also on the Ongame network. For those who do play at the major rooms, SpadeIt has created two programs. The first, SpadeEye, handles Texas Hold‘em and is compatible with PartyPoker, Full Tilt Poker, Empire Poker, Ultimate Bet, and Absolute Poker. With this program, players have tools that will compile their statistics and assist in play at the tables. They are also able to share those statistics with other programs such as PokerTracker and Hold’em Manager.

Where the SpadeEye program falls a bit short is on the datamining front. Of the compatible rooms listed above, SpadeEye will datamine tables from only PartyPoker, Full Tilt Poker, and Empire. This is undoubtedly something that the company could improve on.

For those who play Omaha, SpadeIt has come up with tools for major rooms once again. SpadeEye Omaha covers the same rooms that the original SpadeEye does, but doesn’t allow for a transfer of information to as many other software programs as the original. Even with this small issue, a tracking program for Omaha is an invaluable asset at the table.

When it comes to the Ongame network, SpadeIt has stepped up its game and created a program that covers many of the rooms it offers. EyeOnGame covers both Texas Hold’em and Omaha and can be used with several the different rooms that make up the fifth-ranked online poker network. Created in November of 2008, EyeOnGame is compatible with 14 Ongame partners such as PokerRoom, Eurobet, and Hollywood Poker, making it something which non-American players can use for table selection and transferring information to other statistical software programs.

Where the software falls a bit short is in the datamining arena. While SpadeEye and its Omaha counterpart allow for datamining abilities, EyeOnGame doesn’t have this capability. It is something that many players would like to have, according to a thread on a popular online poker forum, but they are still happy to have a program that can be used for collecting information on the Ongame Network.

Prices for the different programs that SpadeIt offers are very reasonable. For SpadeEye and SpadeEye Omaha, you can spend $45 through PayPal, Neteller, Moneybookers, or a player transfer on PokerRoom. With EyeOnGame, the price is $35 through the same outlets.
