In a continuous effort to enforce fairness and security for all players on the site, partypoker revealed that it has successfully closed 48 more ‘bot' accounts in August 2019 as well as they seized $148,668 and €29,495 to be redistributed to players.

There were 36 dotcom (.com) accounts closed during August 2019 and in the process the partypoker Poker Fraud Team seized $148,668 in player balances, in which will be redistributed to affected dotcom players. Meanwhile on the same month, the fraud team discovered and closed 12 rogue doteu (.eu) accounts coming from their European-based sites, and in the process they seized €29,495 in associated funds.

Some of the closures were thanks to players who reported these suspicious bots.This latest monthly crackdown brings the following statistics:

  • Total account closures - 649 since December 2018
  • $1,174,758 and €164,878 - seized and redistributed to affected players.

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 website 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 PartyPoker does is certainly wonderful .... the fight against scammers must be conducted in all poker rooms .... but as I see it, only PartyPoker is fighting with scammers .... last year I lost $ 500 to players from Hungary. ... lost without a chance .... maybe they were also not completely honest? .... And now I will probably get compensation? .... It would be very cool Worship

What happens to money they take away from bots? It was won from regular players, so it should go back to those players, right?:o

In most cases the money confiscated from the bots accounts are divided into the players with which they played. It's a split, not very accurate because it is very difficult to do this at the cash tables, but it's ok and the captured bots will be very disappointed. Cool

Theapple you have everything in text,what amount they back to players and what happens with account!on every month they close account,sometimes more then 200 in one month and everytime they back some amount to players,probably all they lost against this players!

This way of closing accounts is a very good one. Party Poker will close accounts until these people who use bots they will go crazy because of the nerves and they will know that it is no longer easy to steal money. I like that when they are caught.

The good work continues in party poker, by bringing down more and more botd.
It makes you wonder though, how many there are at the end.
And of course there is the chance that some of them to be just new bots,
of previously discovered players, using one Smile

probably this players/persons will think twice will they open again accounts on this way and will they play it on this way!now how they follow this account,they will be closed very fast and they will not have anything from it!would be nice that other poker sites do things like this and give us informations about their closing account,if they do this!

They will keep it no doubt. They say they it will be redistributed but I doubt that very much.

Party Poker is trying to escape by these bots, but i'm thinking: how many bots exist in this poker room? because you realize that their number is a very large one and in 2019. They ran big sums and made enough money. They destroyed the game of many people and is very bad. Sad

Unbelievable they still using bot there after few times PP closed it. Strange they didn't withdraw and deposit again when they will play, or their account suddenly closed when they were playing ? is it real? Question Question Sad Sad
 CALICUL27/09/2019 11:42:08 GMT
Everything is real and Party Poker will continue to close accounts until these people resign themselves. Is not nice to play with people's money and i would like it if these bots can be caught by the police. Personally i would indicate this for player protection.

Well, the people who own these bots are using more than one to be honest, so once you catch one of them they have dozens other accounts they could fire up instead...
 dule-vu30/09/2019 09:42:59 GMT
maybe they have lot of account and enough money to play on lot of them,but still its not so good when they take money from account and when they didnt make cashout!so they will now have to be careful with money and how much of money they will left on account!we will see next month how many of them they closed it!
 CALICUL30/09/2019 16:46:44 GMT
It is an undeniable truth that you say, Bowie and these people they have to be hunted by the police. A lot of players they suffered because of this and it is not normal. I don't understand why these poker rooms do not contact the police and to catch these people.
 Nightkid10/10/2019 14:18:04 GMT
Well, the bots issue I think is not only here but everywhere but here it shows more by the movement of money they usually do I think, that in my life I would see something like that hahaha but well those who have money can do what I want practically and another manages to do this kind of thing and you win faster Angry Angry Angry
 CALICUL11/10/2019 13:15:03 GMT
I like that because Party Poker closes many accounts that use bots. Unfortunately, in other poker rooms, the cases is very rarely when it comes to catching bots. This thing must to expand and many persons to be caught.
