SITE MEMBERSHIP

UB, use to be a medium to large poker site in terms of player traffic (Review Poker Online). The site is probably the third or fourth largest site and has grown steadily over the last couple of year. Players can expect anywhere from 100 to 300 real money tables operating with 1000 to 3000 real money players occupying these tables.

GAME PLAY

To be honest I have not ventured to this site on too many occasions in recent times. When I was a frequent visitor, the games here were pretty good, particularly the one on one play. Limit ring games were also good value, with percentage preflops constantly around 40 per cent, which leads to good pot sizes. I would love it if a frequent player could email me and provide an update on current game play.

SOFTWARE

This software has always run smoothly at this site and seems to have handled the recent increase in site traffic easily. Recent additions include new background choices surrounding the table as well as the introduction of the the Ultimate Buddy, which lets you see if players you like to converse with or play against are online and which tables they are at. The download is about 5 MB.

CUSTOMER SUPPORT

Enquires are generally dealt with promptly via email.

PROMOTIONS

The site has a promotion where players can win a trip to Aruba in 2003. You can play for your chance to win a trip to Aruba and your share of the estimated $500,000 prize pool in our Ultimate Poker Classic II.

Ultimate Points can also be earned by playing cash games and can be exchanged for prizes or trips of your choice. One must play a lot of poker to earn a trip however.
