Online poker operator 888poker has announced that they returned $287,292 in funds to players after they found fair play violations throughout 2022.

6,801 players got the refunds, with ann average return of $42 per player. The refunds were up 32% from 2021. 888 said that the refunds came after investigations into bots and real-time advising software, which gives players an advantage over players that don't use the software. There were also limited numbers of collusion cases, where one player will help another.

Regarding the refunds, 888poker Head of Poker Offering Matan Krakow said, "At 888poker, we take the issue of game integrity very seriously. This year, as a result of our continued investments in technology, cooperation of our players, and hard work of our teams, we have increased the detection rate of bot accounts, RTA and collusion to give back almost $290,000 to players.

"In the year ahead, we will continue to focus on this area to ensure that customers have a fair, safe, and entertaining experience when they play with 888poker."

RTA is a growing issue in online poker, especially at higher stakes. There are new cloud-based AI tools that can output exact solver solutions to any poker hand and board texture in under 30 seconds.

Whoa, that's insane. It's interesting to see what impact AI is having on everything, but I didn't even consider it with poker.
