Online poker site recruits world poker champion to enhance tournament schedule and overall poker offering.  

 

Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 23, 2008 — Leading online poker site UltimateBet.com today announced a groundbreaking new poker tournament schedule while welcoming one of the world's greatest poker professionals as its new poker room Consultant. The online poker site has taken the bold step of handing over the management of its tournament schedule to Annie Duke.

"Annie Duke has a proven track record of not only playing the game, but also knowing exactly what online poker players want to see in a tournament schedule," stated UltimateBet.com spokesperson George MacLean. "We're confident that her unparalleled insight will significantly enhance our poker offering and strengthen our online poker community."

 I am extraordinarily pleased with their commitment to wanting what's best for the poker player and I have a renewed sense of enthusiasm in the future of UltimateBet. 

 

The poker champion is no stranger to the UltimateBet brand. Duke was a key player in designing the UltimateBet software and was a consultant for the poker room several years ago. She is excited to be back on board to build a schedule that will attract old and new players to the site.

"I opted to accept the poker room Consultant position after spending time with UltimateBet's new senior management team," notes Duke. "I am extraordinarily pleased with their commitment to wanting what's best for the poker player and I have a renewed sense of enthusiasm in the future of UltimateBet."

? New Sniper tournaments with massive guarantees
? $1.2 million in weekly guarantees
? Nightly DeepStack tournaments featuring longer blind levels where players start with 5,000 chips for tourneys with buy-ins of $100+9 and above, and 3,000 starting chips for tourneys with buy-ins under $100+9
? New Short, Super Short, and Mega Short Stack satellites allow online poker fans to qualify so many new ways, all the way up to one half hour before an event
? Lots of ways for players to qualify for their WSOP* seat – including a 3-seat guaranteed tournament on Sunday and a 25-seat and 50-seat guaranteed event
? New $1 Turbo Rebuy $5,000 guaranteed tournament where poker fans can win their seat for as little as 6 cents

Absolute Poker and UltimateBet Welcome ePassporte Users With Bonuses and Alternate Payment Methods

The two online poker rooms today welcomed all poker players affected by ePassporte's recent decision to cease offering services to the online gaming community. Absolute Poker and UltimateBet offer their own integrated payment solution in addition to accepting ten other funding methods.

(PRWEB) April 18, 2008 — Absolute Poker and UltimateBet today issued a statement to all online poker players affected by ePassporte's decision to no longer accept funding for online gaming. The online gaming sites each offer their players a dozen different ways to deposit and receive funds, quickly and effortlessly.
In addition to the sites' integrated payment processing that allows players to deposit poker funds directly from their Visa or MasterCard, UltimateBet and Absolute Poker both allow players to fund their accounts via services such as NETeller, UKash, Moneybookers, ClickandBuy, and CLICK2PAY. Bank drafts and certified checks as well as direct bank wire transfers are also available to online poker players looking to fund their account. UK-based players can use popular debit cards Switch, Solo, Maestro, Visa Electron, and Delta to make deposits.

The broad variety of deposit options that each poker room gives players is just the beginning. Both also feature industry-leading bonuses to players making their first deposits with them, inviting Texas Hold'em fans to more than double their bankroll – up to $1,100 in the case of UltimateBet. Loyalty programs that reward online poker players with gear, vacations, land-based tournament entries and other prizes have also made the two sites industry favorites.
