In a continuous effort to enforce fairness and security for all players on the site, partypoker revealed that it has successfully closed 57 more ‘bot' accounts in October 2019 and seized $13,976 and €1,490 to be redistributed to players.
There were 50 dotcom (.com) accounts closed during October 2019 and in the process the partypoker Poker Fraud Team seized $13,976 in player balances, which will be redistributed to affected dotcom players.
Still on the same month, the fraud team discovered and closed 7 rogue doteu (.eu) accounts coming from their European-based sites, and in the process they seized €1,490 in associated funds.
Some of the closures were thanks to players who reported these suspicious bots.
partypoker strives to continue in maintaining the safety of its players, and so a specialist poker fraud team was created, composed of a group of former poker pros whose main role is to investigate suspicious activity and help partypoker in kicking out these dodgy accounts. The site promises to update their valued players regarding the account closures they make every month.
Team partypoker pro Patrick Leonard said, "Two years ago it wouldn't have been possible, but after seeing the security department first hand, the team working there and the tools they are using, I'm very confident now that they can tackle people trying to play against the rules. In my opinion it isn't worth somebody trying to bend the rules because, in the words of Liam Neeson: ‘They will find you, they will catch you and they will.. ban you!'"
Suspicious activity has many faces. It can be a collusion between two or more players, or it could be somebody using bots or other illegal software designed to give players an unfair advantage.
partypoker players noticing the suspicious gameplay of such accounts are encouraged to report it to partypoker's fraudster team at [email protected]. partypoker promises to investigate all incidents reported.

| What happens with this poker room who has so many bots? In almost every month from this year Party Poker eliminates many crooks but they come back many times. They found a breach there and take advantage of this. It's sad for players who lose money with them and disgusting.|

| The bots are everywhere unfortunately although one does not want them there ... I see that they always look for the easiest way to earn money without having to be present and depend on a program to be able to do it ... that really bothers me and hopefully apart from closing accounts, they could fine or take away all the money from those who do that |

| I understand there are bots in any poker room, but as I see it, only PartyPoker is fighting this problem in their poker room .... of course, other poker rooms are also fighting this problem, but they do not publish the results of this fight .... so it seems that the only poker room that fights bots is PartyPoker |

| Every poker player from this world must to make a kind of strike and everyone must to file a complaint. Maybe in every country the laws will be established and will punish with big prison for these people who use bots. All players need to be protected because is normal. |

| Again and again. I dont think we will ever stop seeing news about this matter.|
It is going to be a constant struggle. the moment they find one bot, someone
is trying to make a new and better one
The amount seized was not that big but a considerable one.
Good thing they are returning as always, the money to the affected players.

| I think this phenomenon can be stopped, if there is a law with 20 years in prison for those who use these bots. At this moment there is no such thing and any player who knows can use that bots can try. There is no player safety and any person who wants to do that, can make money until it is eliminated by the employees of PP.|

I am not sure they really care about bots, since they pay the rake the same as the real players, but nevertheless they are promoting regularly that at least they are trying to fight against them. It's a promotion just like others.

| Any poker room that does not take action, to get rid of bots, shows no respect for most poker players. Party Poker struggles with this phenomenon, but unfortunately other rooms is not too interested in this major inconvenient. I wish everyone to eliminate these croockers. |

maybe PartyPoker is making efforts to eliminate dishonest players in order to become famous as the most honest poker room to attract players ... then of course they do it right .... firstly they really removes dishonest players ... and secondly, by these actions of course they make wonderful adverts for themselves .... and their actions pay off

| somehow I think that probably other poker sites also fight against this bot accounts,but they dont write anywhere there,but maybe I am wrong!party poker just want to write about this and show people that they are secure site for playing poker!this is very good promotion for their site!|

| Any poker room is trying to attract customers and to make money. This is their main purpose, but logically, they have to protect their players a lot. This is not happening so much, like it's normal. Party Poker do a good thing. That means something to their group of depositors.|
