UltimateBet - Closed 01/12
Well my search ended once I landed up at UltimateBet.com. Even those of us who know next to nothing about poker will be able to play like pros thanks to sections on poker rules and strategy. These sections are written in the simplest of language which will leave no room for any misinterpretation by any reader. Every aspect of the game is covered in great detail. I was amazed to see the extent the promoters of UltimateBet have gone to ensure that everyone has a good chance of winning.
UltimateBet has all the popular varieties of poker games - Omaha Hi and Hi-Lo, Texas Hold'em, Seven Card Stud, 2-7 Triple draw, Pineapple, A-5 Triple draw. Name them and you will be sure to find them in this poker room. Among the many firsts to the credit of UltimateBet, this poker room was the first to bring in Pineapple poker a variation of Hold'em. This is one poker room that believes in bringing the very latest and best to it players.
Two of the best poker players, Annie Duke and Phil Hellmuth endorse this poker room along with number of other well known professional poker players. In UltimateBet players have a chance to play, hone and match skills with real professionals, maybe pick up a trick or two along the way and also the chance to participate in some of the biggest poker events. Players will find tournaments of every size here with prize money ranging from $8000 to $200,000.
There are number of freeroll tournaments as well at UltimateBet. The prizes in these freeroll tournaments differ from cash prizes to entries in to WPT Boot camp as well. Players also have the choice of deciding the level of competition they want to take on. Tournaments with big buy-ins will feature some of the top pros and the competition will be at the highest level. UltimateBet also has tournaments with buy-ins of just $1 and these obviously have very soft competition. This kind of mix guarantees that there is tournament for every type of poker player.
Keeping in line with offering the most and the best, UltimateBet has a slew of bonuses on offer. There is a sign-up of $1500, up to 200% deposit bonus, plus a bonus of $75 for referrals. Bonuses earned do not get expired, which I think is a very nice feature to have in a poker room.
UltimateBet is open to US players and also to players from fourteen other countries. There is 24/7 e-mail support to take care of customers queries. On the few occasions that I needed clarifications I received replies to my e-mails in real quick time. The queries were answered in professional and simple manner. All the prominent and reputed deposit and payment gateways are available in this poker room.
