The site’s ongoing battle against the online cheaters shows a marked drop in the number of accounts shut down for irregular activity since last month.

September saw 13 accounts from the global .com market amounting to $9,338, with 3 accounts from the ring-fenced .eu market totalling €3,368 in associated funds.

That money is now in the process of being redistributed to affected players and brings the total seized funds to some $450,000 and €170,000 since partypoker started publicising their fight against the bots this April.

The table below shows the breakdown…

    .com   .eu
April 39 $143,908 55 €34,546
May 33 $46,805 9 €3,598
June 63 $24,257 4 €8,888
July 89 $76,267 32 €88,351
August 36 $148,668 12 €29,495
September 13 $9,338 3 €3,368

Those banned accounts and related funds have been targeted by partypoker’s two-prong approach, a dedicated and specialised Poker Fraud Team on the lookout for bots, boosted by player reports of suspicious activity.

partypoker has promised to investigate all incidents reported and players can email with their concerns, the site pledging to update players on the account closures made every month.
