Author: Vargoso Published: 14.03.20

The fight against bots continues in online poker. Since last year, the biggest poker rooms started sharing the results of their strategies against cheaters: partypoker, Microgaming, among others, confirmed a frontal fight against bots, blocking accounts and seizing money. Winning Poker Network did the same thing, and now a new reimbursement has been announced.

WPN Bots Twitter

According to the WPN Banned Accounts website, the last account was blocked on September 26, 2019, six months ago. A total of 13,910 players benefited from this process and the network has already contacted them to share more details.

Joey Ingram (recently awarded Journalist of the Year by Global Poker Awards 2019) questioned that the last account "was blocked in July 2019", but Philip Nagy (WPN CEO) replied that they were continually working and that accounts are continuously blocked, but no reimbursement was made due to data issues.

It's clear that bots are one of the main problems that the online poker industry faces in 2020. With tools like Pluribus being developed right now, online poker rooms need to devote enough effort and create anti-cheating teams to stop scams faster than ever.
