Ultimate Poker Discussion Thread

http://www.ultimatepoker.com/

Ultimate Poker launched today in Nevada, and is the first 100% legal online poker room in the US.

Let's discuss all things Ultimate Poker, such as the rake, player pool, software, ect.

One cool feature, imo, is that one can deposit before going to NV and then basically instantly play when they arrive. Also one can cash out at any of the Station owned casinos and get cash right one the spot.

From the thread in NVG:

Quite frankly you are going to have to explain this type of cryptic error message instead of just throwing it out there and expecting people to know what it means.

Notice the name at the top, this is all while Ultimate Poker is claiming:

We're branded with Ultimate because of our association with the UFC. But we're [already] used to that followup question. I suspect we'll hear it a lot.
The those guys is Ultimate Bet obviously, but clearly there is a connection between Ultimate Poker and Ultimate Bet, and the connection is Iovation, one of the culprits of the scandals.

If we get a Maybe So - we'll need to see a scan of your ID. No means you're using a deceased ID or they found that you're actually only 13 years old.
This was posted later in the NVG thread, but still in time for me to edit my post.

Re: Ultimate Poker Discussion Thread

Will I be able to observe without creating an account and logging in? Right now I just see a completely blank lobby but I assume that is because they havent started dealing hands yet?

Re: Ultimate Poker Discussion Thread

Still can't believe they used "Ultimate". I live in NV, but having lost 8k on UB it doesn't make me feel fuzzy inside giving them my money.

Question: I live in NV. Would it be advisable to wait until I find out about possible RB affiliates before I make an account?

I was thinking the same thing but I vaguely remember that the affiliates also need to be licensed in Nevada and that there was a 10k fee for an affiliate license. Given the small player pool, I doubt anyone will offer any kind of deal that is truly worthwhile.

But they're using Esfandiari's greasy mug on their front page and being associated with UFC all I think about is affliction wearing, meat head douchebags. Doesn't exactly get the sleazy feeling I have left from poker out of my head

Re: Ultimate Poker Discussion Thread

Don't get upset just because I can play there and you can't

No state taxes, online poker, legalized prostitution and anything goes regulations on guns.

NEVADA! **** YEAH!!!

In govt speed terms, this happened fast. Kudos to Nevada.

You have to have a cell phone from an approved cell phone provider and Verizon Wireless is not yet approved, so it seems.
