The company stated it has continued making progress in tackling the issue concerning bots and real time advisor (RTA), the use of software programming to create unfair advantages on actual players.
Furthermore, 888poker detected players who colluded with each other for unfair advantage, and their data shows that throughout 2022, the group refunded a total of 6,801 players, which averages $42 per player. The number represents a 32% increase compared to the previous year in the number of detections.
