Ultimate Bet initially opened in 2001, which makes this poker site one of the oldest in the industry. Over the past 9+ years the poker site has gone through massive changes. Ultimate Bet joined the Cereus Poker Network back in 2008 with Absolute Poker and then in 2010 they re-branded their poker room into UB.com. The entire Cereus Poker Network was also recently sold, but it's actually been a good thing, since the owners have been revamping the poker room. Players from the USA and around the world are able to sign-up for an account with UB.com and there are plenty of deposit options that you can use.
One of the best reasons to join UB.com is the huge sign-up bonus that they give new players. On your first deposit you'll be able to earn a 111% bonus for up to $1100. Make sure you try and deposit as much as you can since the bonus is released in small amounts of $5 at a time. You need to earn status points from playing real money poker and you'll need 20 points for every $1 in bonus money although once you climb up the loyalty ladder you'll start earning bonus dollars slightly quicker.
UB offers a great line-up of promotions every month including special events, freeroll tournaments and thousands in guaranteed prize pools. Most holidays UB will also set-up a promotion so that players can have something unique to play in that isn't typically available in the poker room. Ultimate Bet runs a great loyalty program as well that rewards players with cash and prizes based on how many loyalty points you have. UB also has a bad beat jackpot and several other small promotions that run everyday.
UB doesn't have as much traffic as the two big poker rooms, but they still have poker games running around the clock. Most of the action is on the Holdem and Omaha tables, but there is still plenty of action to be found in other games. UB also offers Seven Card Stud, Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo, Razz, HORSE and HOSE. UB doesn't provide that much high limit action either, but if you're looking for low limit medium limit action then you shouldn't have a problem. UB also runs plenty of tournaments with prize pools reaching in excess of $100K+.
UB Poker offers support through a contact form found on their website only. They typically respond within 24 hours although you may need to wait up to 48 hours for a response from their support staff.
UB.com provides their players with countless amounts of deposit options including MasterCard, Visa, Click2Pay, Click&Buy, Ukash, Bank Wire, Cheque, Wire, Moneybookers, PaySafe Card, Neteller, Debit Cards, EntroPay, Euro6000, CartaSi, PostePay, GiroPay, Laser, EPS, Poli, iDeal, Nordea and WebMoney.
