The red diamond site launched their offensive in April this year, a dedicated Poker Fraud Team comprised of former professionals heading the drive to make the site the safest place to play online poker.

July’s figures saw 89 accounts closed from the .com licence, the largest number since the transparent policy was implemented. Those 89 accounts produced $76,267 in seized funds, which has already been redistributed to players.

Similarly, players on the .eu licence will have 32 fewer bot accounts to face, with €88,351 confiscated and on its way to the affected parties.

The table below shows the number of bot accounts shut down and the respective money seized since the beginning of April…
