The online poker industry is rapidly expanding across the globe and poker players now have multiple choices when it comes to choosing an online poker website. The latest online poker website to go live is UltimaPoker.com.
Ultima Poker offers a variety of traditional online games such as NLHE cash games ranging from $0.01/$0.02 to $10/$20. There are also a number of SNGs and MTTs with buy-ins ranging from $1.10 to $220. Players can access the Ultima Poker website via their PC by downloading the Ultima Poker software or they can also use their smartphones to download the Ultima Poker app. The mobile app is compatible iOS and Android platforms.
Most online poker websites that launch have a lofty vision of becoming one of the major players in the global online poker industry. Ultima Poker does not have such aspirations for now and is focusing on providing online poker players with a trustworthy and reliable system. In its FAQ, Ultima Poker promises absolute security and integrity by prohibiting third-part software such as Holdem Manager or Poker Tracker. The online poker room will also be using tracking programs to eject players using placement scripts to provide equal opportunities for all players.
Ultima Poker supercharged its Fall launch with a huge 400 percent first deposit bonus in order to attract new players and grow its database. First-time players can get as much as $2,000 in bonuses from this deal but will need to keep in mind that it only runs till December 10. There are also free tournament tickets for several deposit amounts, ranging from two $5.5 tickets for deposits of $100 to $200, two $11 tickets for $201 to $500, and four $11 tickets for higher deposits.
Players who are hesitant of making their first deposit will be able to take advantage of the special No Deposit Bonus, which gives players $5 free for a cash table game or a five $1 tournament tickets for MTTs or SNGs.
Ultima Poker is registered and licensed by the Government of Curacao. Most of the new online gambling websites that have launched in recent times have preferred to get licensed and registered in Curaco. This is because Curacao charges operators a 2 percent tax on net profits, on top of a small $34,000 setup fee and monthly $5,600 for the first two years. This is a lot lesser when compared to some of the other commissions such as the UK Gambling Commission.
