"Play with random players"

Some type of quick/automatic seat?

Hey Schneids. We're going to roll out the games a bit slowly at first, balancing the comfort of running the games with making sure there's games to play for everyone. It's delicate - offer too many games and none will run.

You can support us by playing 5/10 NL or 10/20 FL and emailing support from time to time, letting them know you want to play bigger.

Unfortunately, P2P xfers are actually illegal in Nevada, per regulations. They want to make sure that there's adequate checks for age and self-exclusion, and that you aren't simply playing on a throwaway account.

No play money [yet]. We have a facebook app, but the experience is really completely different. We're offering pretty small games, and the minimum to deposit is really low ($10 if you do it at a Stations Cage or via MasterCard), so I think you'll be able to experience our site in that way.

Awesome news! I can't wait to check it out this summer.

I understand that they are JUST launching and it will take awhile for a lot of things to come together. That said, I really hope they are able to offer bigger games (and hopefully at least PLO) by WSOP time. With everyone heading to Vegas for the summer, there could be a lot of hype if big games move to the first US regulated online site for a few months. Even as high as 25/50 and 50/1 could get a fair amount of attention.

Exciting news either way, and I look forward to trying it out in a month.

What ideas do you have to juice up the site? Here are mine:

1. Allow comp points to be converted from home into a poker deposit.

2. Use match play coupons

3. Use jackpot drops in the land based poker rooms to fund poker deposits instead. Lower the prize amounts and increase the distribution of these min-jackpots.

4. Have other casino games like slot machines pay prizes in poker deposits.

Guys, do your homework on this. Be careful.

I live in Vegas, got everything setup but I'm trying to get my age and Id verified. I emailed my id to support. Do I just sit and wait now? Looking to deposit asap.

I'm assuming the answer is no, but will the site accept players outside of Nevada if they only play for play money?
04-30-2013 , 11:45 AM

You can sign up, but you cannot play for money until located in Nevada.

Yup - also required by Nevada regulation. It allows you to play with other players who've selected this (random players in a random seat). This will be for the smallest limit game we have on the site (I believe 0.02/0.04).

Congratulations guys, hope this is the start of something big!

Now that UP has launched it brings to mind a question. What is the exact law (Federal or State)that is stopping me as an IL resident from playing poker online? Can someone provide me with the text of it? UIGEA addressed the banking side of it correct? But now I could fly to NV and deposit at any Stations Casinos which bypasses that. The wire act has recently been ruled not to pertain to poker. Is there a legal argument that can be made that we as residents outside of NV have grounds to play on UP from any where in the US? (Except for Washington and Utah which i believe are the only states that have specific laws against their residents playing online poker?)

Who is going to post the first hand history?!

Whoever takes down the first pot of regulated online poker in U.S has a legit lifetime brag.

Really Exciting for US !
