Game Fairness & Security

Issues of fairness in the game and security of the player are taken very seriously at MadOverPoker.com. When you create and account and log on the site our secure system will protect all of your information, using multiple layers of encryption. We use complex algorithms to ensure that no online transactions can be diverted, intercepted or used for purposes other than those you approved your Credit Card information will not be saved in our system.

Anti-Collusion

Collusion is always a concern to players, whether online or in physical poker rooms. It’s defined as multiple players working together, revealing hands to one another and making mutually beneficial decisions at the expense of others. Collusion is not only forbidden at MadOverPoker.com, but results in an immediate lifetime ban and forfeiture of all cash in a colluder’s account. As a safeguard against collusion, MadOverPoker.com employs sophisticated tracking algorithms. Our software tracks betting patterns as they relate to players’ relative hand strength over a long period, cross-referencing this information with that obtained from the other players at the table. Patterns may emerge that indicate possible collusion, and action will be taken. Because our servers record every card that is dealt, this security goes beyond that employed by the most secure bricks-and-mortar card rooms. Nonetheless, this system is not infallible. So MadOverPoker.com will investigate all allegations of collusion brought to our attention by players or employees. Players can always see their own records in a modified version of the software we use to track every game.

Anti-Hacking

Hacking is a major concern for any online business, and we have taken all necessary steps to ensure that our games are immune to interference. Any hacker who attempts to gain an advantage by intercepting packets will be thwarted by our sophisticated security measures, including our 128-bit SSL encryption. Security on our games is at the same level used by all major financial institutions. MadOverPoker.com secures your credit card information, personal information, game records, current hand and actions on the table. Our software is structured so that no other player can intercept any meaningful data from your computer. All game logic decisions, such as shuffling, are made on our secure servers at a remote location, protected by both hardware and software security systems.

Criminal Activity

If we have reasonable cause to believe that criminal or other suspicious activities are occurring through one or more Accounts (including, without limitation, a suspicion of attempted moneylaundering or fraud), we expressly reserve the right to close such Accounts and/or report such activity to the respective authorities and/or other applicable regulatory bodies or services. All Account balances (including both deposits and any winnings) shall be forfeited.

Fraudulent Activity

If, in our reasonable discretion, we determine that a player has engaged in fraudulent, unlawful, dishonest or improper activity (including, without limitation, the usage of a VPN, proxy or similar service that masks or manipulates the identification of your real location, or by otherwise providing false or misleading information, or by making bets, wagers or poker play through a third party or on behalf of a third party) we reserve the right to immediately terminate or deny a player access to their Account. In such event, all Account balances (including both deposits and any winnings) shall be forfeited and we reserve the right to disclose information (including the identity of the player) to applicable parties including but not limited to; the Gaming Commission, banks, credit card companies and/or any person or entity that has the legal right to such information, and/or taking legal action against such player.

No Player Assistance Programs

Use by players of external player assistance programs ("EPA Programs") which are designed to provide players with an unfair advantage over their opponents are expressly prohibited. We define EPA Programs as including computer software and non-software-based databases or profiles (e.g., web sites and subscription services) and we consider access to or the ability to gather data or information on other players by any means that would not be accessible via their own first-hand experience (i.e. observation of game play) to be "unfair". We reserve the right to close Accounts and void any and all winnings in such Accounts if we establish, in our reasonable discretion, the use of an EPA Program.

"Bots" Prohibited

All actions on the Website must be executed by players via the supplied user interface. We will take any measures necessary to ensure that all robot software or programs designed to simulate real player play will be detected and prevented from accessing the Website. Any accounts associated with such activity will be subject to review and possible termination. If, in our reasonable discretion, we determine that an Account is employing such software, the Account will be disabled and all Account balances (including both deposits and any winnings) shall be forfeited.

Old Inactive Tickets Policy

Any tournament ticket which is  older than 3 months and becomes inactive for any reason, will not be reissued. MOP will exercise its discretion in such cases and our decision will be final and binding. 
 

General Withdrawal Criteria Policy

In case you are making a withdrawal without playing adequate number of hands on real cash tables and fail to accumulate VIP points equal to 0.5% of the requested withdrawal amount (Minimum of 1 VIP point), then a transaction fee of 4% of the deposit made or requested withdrawal amount(whichever is lower) will be levied for the first such instance. 10% transaction fees will be levied on subsequent instances. The above mentioned VIP points will have to be earned by the player between the time of last deposit or last withdrawal(whichever is later) and the time of current withdrawal request. MOP also reserves the right to waive off this transaction fees on specific request from the user on a case by case basis.

 

Inter-Player Transfers Prohibited

In accordance with our Anti-Money Laundering Policy and protocols, we do not permit or condone money transfers between player accounts. Players found to be transferring money (including by way of so-called poker "chip dumping") may have the transfer reversed in our sole and absolute discretion. In such event, in our discretion, such Accounts may be closed and all Account balances (including both deposits and any winnings) may be forfeited.

"Betting Syndicates"

A player or group of players working together in any fashion (also known as a "syndicate"), to receive either winnings or activity bonuses or otherwise, may only have one Account in total, and any redundant Accounts will be consolidated into the one Account. An administration fee may be charged and payouts refused for each redundant Account, in our sole discretion. All wagering transactions in redundant Accounts are subject to reversal at our sole discretion. We also reserve the right to forfeit the principal of any wager placed in an attempt to defraud the house of any bonus monies, whether a player does this on their own or in collusion with other players or other sportsbooks.

Abuse of System Vulnerability

If, in our reasonable discretion, we determine that an Account sought to or actually did exploit any hardware or software error, malfunction, "bug" or other vulnerability, we shall immediately close such Account and all Account balances, including both deposits and any winnings, shall be immediately forfeited. If, in our reasonable discretion, we determine that such activity is occurring, the Account(s) may, in our sole and absolute discretion, be disabled and all Account balances (including both deposits and any winnings) shall be forfeited. In such event, we expressly reserve the right to initiate civil legal proceedings and report such activities to authorities in support of criminal investigations and charges, as appropriate.
