France-based Winamax Online Poker Network is being sued for allowing poker bots to play in its Winamax’s Expresso games.

Six players have brought the suit forward. Each is seeking damages of between €10,000 to €50,000 each.  A criminal case could also be lodged against two individuals and quite possibly Winamax itself.

“Winamax is indebted for a legal obligation of transparency of gaming operations,” states the lawsuit filed by Ms. Justine Orier on behalf of the players.

“To date, Winamax refuses to provide information on the session that took place during the VictoriaMo / mr.GR33N1 survey. There is however no legal justification that allows Winamax to decide partially and unilaterally the rules of the investigation and not to communicate on its content,” it continued.
