Miami, FL (Marketwire) Monday August 31, 2009 – This September, UltimateBet ("UB") is set to unleash its new Mac-compatible online poker client, providing Mac players everywhere with unparalleled access to the much-loved games and features that PC users have come to know and enjoy at the leading online poker room. Mac users have been clamoring for a complete Mac-friendly version of the UltimateBet poker software, and with UB Mac, it has finally arrived.
UB Mac is designed specifically to answer the needs and wants of online gamers and to deliver the ultimate online poker version for the Apple-compatible web-based program. If you’re one of the growing number of Mac devotees the world over, the launch of UB’s native downloadable Mac software means you can now be part of the ultimate online poker community without inferior parallels or other Windows on Mac emulators.
“Our company strives to make our poker room accessible to as many people as possible, and we recognize that Apple computers have a growing market share in the personal computing industry. In response to this trend we have developed an all new download poker application specifically for the Mac Operating System,” said Tokwiro Chief Operating Officer Paul Leggett. “As a Mac user, the only real limitation I have found is that a lot of poker applications will not run on the Mac OS. With UB Mac, players will enjoy the same incredible user experience that PC users currently have, and we remain committed to ongoing development of our Mac online poker client to ensure it is the best in the business.”
“A few weeks back, I got the news I've been waiting for…UB for Mac is ready for beta testing! I immediately downloaded the application and I was up and running in no time,” said Team UB poker pro and Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian. “I’m a Mac nerd, and most of my buddies also swear by Apple Mac; it's been a constant frustration trying to get them to buy virtual Windows programs so they can play on UB. Well, no more virtual anything. It's UB Mac and it's kicking ass. It's blazing fast on my MacBook already. Spread the word my friends, UB for Mac is here, so get on it!”
The new software allows Mac players to have access to the most popular features and functionality that UB users playing on Windows-compatible computers have, including all the ring games, satellites, single and multi-table Hold ‘em tournaments, and single player Blackjack.
Along with the debut of the stellar Mac version of the UB software, comes the launch of UB’s No Download Poker Games option, which allows both PC and Mac users the ability to play at UltimateBet anytime, anywhere. Simply click and play from any internet browser, no matter where you are. It’s UB Instant Play, and it’s your ticket to the UB tables when you’re away from home and on the go, or perhaps just don’t want to download the software.
The full live version of the UB Mac software will be available for download at UltimateBet.com
