Report collusion or chip dumping

Collusion happens when two or more players are working together to win more money from other players. Chip dumping occurs when a player intentionally loses chips to someone else.

Both activities are strictly prohibited and will result in penalties at our discretion.

When a report of collusion or chip dumping is received, one of our Poker Specialists undertakes an extensive review of the players' relationships and past play.

To investigate a collusion or chip dumping report, we need the following information:

  • Usernames of the players involved
  • Copies of suspicious hand histories (or at least hand IDs)
  • Copies of suspicious chat
  • Table/Tournament IDs

Contact us with this information, using the subject title Collusion/Chip dumping report, and an investigation will be conducted.
