What Makes UB the Best Poker Room?

Ultimate Bet is one of the oldest and most established poker sites on the internet, and I recommend it to anyone as a great site to build a bankroll.  In 2008 it merged with Absolute Poker to form the new Cereus Network, which is now the 3rd bussiest network in the world, with over 30,000 players at peak times.  

The best thing about UB is the massive selection of tournaments, including guaranteed events, knockout bounties and Sniper 6-handed MTTs.  Aditionally, you can find some very soft games at the low stakes end of the spectrum which makes a grinding a profit a lot easier here than other poker sites.  After signing up with you receive access to their superb graphics, swift gamplay and the top dollar monthly promotions.  These include their Steps events, Seven-Deuce bluffing tables, RAISE Rewards program and annual UCOOP.


The software at Ultimate Bet is high quality and extremely good looking.  The lobby is well-layed out with useful filtering options and table statistics. During games players can check hand history, keep notes on players, change backgrounds and also use the mini-view for multi-tabling.  The deposits/withdrawal methods are the fastest in the industry, something that is beginning to attract a lot of players given the financial incompetencies at other smaller rooms.  The most commonly accepted methods for depositing includes all major credit and debit cards, as well as Western Union, MoneyGram, MoneyBookers, and bank transfers

Tournament Promotions

You can find every type of tournament at UB including freerolls, knockout bounties, guaranteed tournaments, deep stack events and even Heads up tournaments (HUTs).  Current UB promotions include the Steps Tournaments, the Donkaments (weekly $50k freeroll with UB points entry), the Sunday $200k Gtd, and the Monthly $1,000 Anne Duke Heads Up Challenge.  The biggest weekly event at UB is the Sunday $200,000 Gtd which costs $215 to enter and features a massive payout, attracting lots of players. The winner gets $40,000 and with less competition and opponents, it makes it a more profitable substitute for the Stars Million.

UB runs lots of low buy-in tournaments for new players ranging from $1 – $20 each day and players can qualify for the $200k Gtd via daily satellites starting from $0.25.  Other high stakes events during the week include the Sniper Knockout Bounty $40k Gtd ($130 entry), the $150k Gtd High Roller Event ($1050 entry), and the Saturday $100k Gtd Deep-Stack Event with a $320 buy-in. High stakes players can also play the the weekly $1,050 Deep Stack Highrollers Event.

Player Competition

The competition at Ultimate Bet is average at best and  there are a number of fish in the tournaments and cash games that makes them more profitable than anywhere else.  This is especiall true at the lower limits and tournaments.

Games Variety

Holdem and Omaha are the most popular games at UB.  They are available from $.01/.02 up to $50/100.  Ultimate Bet also offers a number of games that are difficult to find on other sites such as Triple Draw and Pineapple.  You can play Black Jack, Elimination Black Jack and multi-player Black Jack too.  You can play lots of soft SNGs which are available from $1 to $500.  They are available in an assortment of structures including 6-man Sngs, 4-man Sngs, 10-man and games with over 100 players.

$1,100 Bonus

Ultimate Bet offers one of the best deals in the industry, a 111% up to $1100 bonus.  This clears at a standard rate of 10 Ultimate Points per dollar.
