So I’m a long time bovada/ignition reg and i play mostly 10/20 6max nlh with some 5/10 mixed in. Some people can probably figure out who I am. TL;DR- I recently reported a player or group of players colluding in these games and was actually rewarded with a nice refund for my troubles yesterday.
I began to notice some funny business in the games around the start of the year (it probably traces back into 2021 as well, tbh), and had enough evidence to fire off an email to security back in February. I did not receive any refund at the time, but I was ok with that because 1) the group of accounts who were cheating in the games disappeared literally overnight, and 2) I prefer refunds go to losing players if hard choices need to be made.
This group of accounts showed back up last month, and I discovered/reported them again in similar fashion. Once again, I had not received a refund but the accounts disappeared from the games once again in short order.
I’m making this post/thread for a couple reasons- the first one being to announce that I’m not going anywhere and I haven’t been doing this for a living for 15 years because I’m scared to go to war. the second reason being to put the word out that the security department here is robust and competent, so if anybody wants to try and mess around, you best know you’re on borrowed time from the moment you make that second account.
Another thing to take note of- the guys who claim to play these stakes and post regularly in the IGN thread on 2+2 would likely be barking up a tree already in there if they had received any refunds, and none of them have said a word. Makes you wonder a bit, no?
