The site closed 277 bot accounts and redistributed $734K in four months.

Being a profitable online poker player is getting more and tougher day after day. The edges are smaller, regs are better, and the recreationals are harder to find. As it wouldn't be enough, the problem of 'bots' is also a big issue in the online poker industry.

Bots are computer programs with decision-making based on solvers, which are designed to play against human opponents.

According to the rumors, there are several sites, where the cash games are filled with bots, who harm the winrate of flesh and bone players. While most sites try everything to fight the AIs, it's not as easy as many would think. partypoker seems to be the leader in this regard as well.

The site confirmed 277 bot account closures and a total of $734,852.15 in redistributed funds between 1 December 2018 and 31 March 2019, thanks to the recently expanded Poker Fraud Team.

The team is made of former poker pros, who have the expertise and knowledge to detect suspicious activity, whether it's collusion or use of bots.

Players who contact the team can be sure, they do everything to detect unfair advantage. If you suspect you may play against a bot or human players, who collide, you can always reach out to partypoker.

Team partypoker’s 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!’”
