Cheating, collusion, and bots are among the major issues plaguing the online poker industry. This is why iPoker operators are continuing to put in place stringent measures to combat these problems, in a bid to provide a safe, secure, and fair platform for poker players and fans around the world. One of the latest online poker operators to address this concern is PPPoker.
PPPoker has been operating since 2016, with a range of offerings which include lobby poker games that are played in three main formats – No Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha and OFC, as well as club and union games which allow players to form their own poker club. Apart from that, PPPoker also hosts their own global tournaments, with real prizes up for grabs.
To ensure a safer and more fun gaming experience for its players from more than 100 countries worldwide, PPPoker created an Anti-Cheating team tasked to carry out round-the-clock monitoring of tables. The team uses advanced solutions to identify potential cheating, with dozens of unique key indicators that detect and ban bots and other third-party software. All of these measures are outlined in a System Reliability Report recently released by the company.
PPPoker considers system reliability as a crucial element of the platform. The company maintains this by incorporating anti-cheating measures, GPS/IP protection, as well as regular RNG tests, ensuring that the entire gaming experience at the site is safe and fair for poker players and enthusiasts all over the globe.
The report includes a series of back-office Random Generator (RNG) tests ran by the company, which are certified by Gaming Laboratories International (GLI), an independent and accredited firm that provides world-class testing and certification services for the gaming industry.
These back-office RNG tests which were conducted at the end of 2019 across the platform’s main formats, NLH and Omaha, show that PPPoker’s dealing sequence complies with randomness requirements. The report presents the results of these tests, showing the percentage difference between the observed value and the theoretical value.
PPPoker is also taking a tough stance against cheating, permanently banning accounts found to be carrying out unscrupulous acts at the tables. This measure further establishes trust among players and reassures them that they are competing with “real” players.
The company also prevents potential collusion by analysing the GPS details or IP address by players who are at the same table. The full report is available at the official PPPoker website.
