MPL bans over one million fraud accounts

Published on:

In order to continue offering consumers a safe and fair gaming experience, gaming platform MPL announced on Wednesday that it had banned over a million user accounts. The banned accounts include users who violated the terms of service and employed unethical tactics to influence game outcomes in their favor.

Some of the main reasons why user accounts were blocked were the usage of several accounts by the same user, uploading of forged or doctored KYC documents, the use of unauthorized payment methods such as stolen cards, and in-game cheating utilizing any hacks or collusion methods.

“This move is aligned to our player-first approach and also highlights MPL’s zero tolerance towards users who resort to illegal practices in order to alter gameplay results and gain an unfair advantage. With initiatives like this, MPL is poised to continue being a safe and user-friendly platform that is trusted by the users,” said Ruchir Patwa, Vice President (VP) of Security and Compliance of MPL.

Recently, MPL introduced a variety of initiatives to move forward with a player-first approach and offer customers a risk-free and secure gaming environment. As a result, the company established a bug bounty program that offers security researchers up to Rs 10 lakhs in compensation for successfully locating a platform vulnerability.

People submitting the bug report can also point out any potential flaw in the system that they think can provide unfair advantages to the users.

Previously announced multi-game Loss Protection initiative by MPL is also a part of the player-first approach. This policy is the first-of-its-kind that provides claims to users for up to 100% of the amount of their net loss with specific thresholds.

The policy is available to users only after playing 10 or more matches and the use should also have completed the KYC verification successfully.
