In April, Partypoker closed 94, with 39 based in the dot-com player field, and 55 operating in the dot.eu ring-fenced market of France & Spain for a total amount of roughly €163k.
39 bot accounts, which were shuttered on the dot-com site, accounted for a total of $143,908.10 (€129k) in seized funds. In the dot.eu ring-fenced market of France & Spain, sites were higher in number (55), but lower in money accounted (€34,546.17).
