Lord of the Board is rigged

I am a professional backgammon player who enjoys the game and has been playing for more than four decades. In my experience, the absolute worst-rigged game online is Lord of the Board. I've played this sufficiently to see that the algorithms are set to suck as much money out of participants as possible. Indeed, I'm convinced that opponents without a face and some silly number are really bots designed to drain real people's wallets.
Sadly, because the company that operates this is not American, they cannot be investigated, though I have filed a formal complaint with the Israeli government since that seems to be the government that would have jurisdiction, in the faint hope some action would be taken against these unscrupulous operators. But of course, I doubt my complaint will be taken seriously.
Doubly sad is the fact that even this post will have no effect, though I can tell anyone who reads this, I am quitting this site. Vegas is a better bet.

Whatever gave you the idea that playing online for money was a good idea in the first place?
