Partypoker Catches 121 Bots in July

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

Internet poker group Partypoker has announced that they've shut down 121 bot accounts across its network, the third largest month for seizures that the operator has conducted.

The operator also seized $175,000 from the accounts, with 89 of the accounts blocked from the .com domain and 32 from the .eu domain. The total is the third-highest total since the operator began tracking their bot crackdown.

A company release on the seizures read in part: "The poker room continues to invest in resources aimed at safeguarding the safety of its players. Spearheaded by a specialist Poker Fraud Team comprising a collection of former poker professionals whose duty is to investigate suspicious activity and aid partypoker in ridding the site of unscrupulous accounts."

I'm actually surprised that the number is this low. I'd be curious to know how many bots are present on a huge network like PokerStars.

a read a anti poker bot report a few years ago and they posted some intresting information about
this bots...after that i googled some keywords and it was so easy to find more then one website who
offered professinal poker bot software for 100-150 bucks with tutorial vides where you can learn to program the bot the right way etc. it was disturbing to see how easy it is to buy this shit.

So hopefully they didn't caught yours vom 😂 😂 You sound frustrated man 😉

If there's a soft spot in the system there will always be smart asses trying to take advantage of that...I don't care about the poker operators really ..it's their obligation to invest in software, tools or whatever to prevent that...
I just wonder what happened to those $175 000 that being seized and if the human players(obviously that should be the term 😂 ) who've been robed by the bots have been compensated!?
