  • Players logged in from the same IP address are not allocated seats on the same table.


  • Information about the playing cards is always encrypted, thereby preventing any third party from viewing the same.
  • Anti-fraud algorithms track every move (selection of cards, discards, melds, shows) by every player on every table round the clock.
  • Necessary checks have been implemented to analyze if 2 or more players are colluding during the course of a game/tournament. An alert is automatically raised if there are any signs of collusion. Suspected games are carefully scrutinized; if collusion is confirmed, accounts of players are blocked and their funds seized. Chips are returned to the Players who are affected by collusion.

After Game ends
