Poker Card Rooms is big fan of the Ultimate Bet poker room!
There are so many great features at this site that leads
us to wonder why anyone would want to play at any other
popular online poker site. However,
we realized that the only drawback is a very serious drawback
as many of the players are too experienced for an average
player to win. Though we found this site unprofitable, more
experienced players may excel here, and even if we just
broke even we had a great time playing at UB.
The software is great with an interesting 3D table design,
fast play (second only to The
Poker Club), and my favorite, the smaller mini-tables
with minimal graphics, great for playing multiple tables
at once. Ultimate Bet features a number of non-traditional
games, such as Pineapple, which are rarely found on online
poker sites. These non-traditional poker card games are
seldom played, though it is nice that the option exists.
Although we enjoy this site so much we seldom play here
solely because we have a hard time winning hands. Poker
Card Rooms considers itself as an above-average player and
usually quite successful at most sites, though we just find
the competition too fierce at UB to really make it worth
our while. That being said, this applies mostly to the big
limit tables, and not to tables below $5/$10. There are
enough players at the low-limit level that you can find
any game with varying degrees of competition.
On the promotions side, I didn't really find them to be
overly rewarding because of the points system requires you
to play a lot of hands before you can withdraw the money,
even more than average. They do offer 25% to even a 100%
deposit bonus, however they do not give you the deposit
money all at once (unlike most sites) they cover 25 you’re
your bet until you run out of money or you use up all your
deposit in bonus. So for example, you can deposit $100 and
get a $25 deposit credit. However, it is possible to lose
all of your $100 dollars but only $3 of your deposit bonus.
So you are left with $22 in your deposit bonus account which
you can not play with or withdraw. Most sites just give
you the deposit money up front. If you would like the best

Their withdrawal system is good; and like all of the sites
we have reviewed, it is trustworthy and reasonably quick.
Their support system is average and at peak times, can be
a little slow. Overall, we respect this site a lot, but
only recommend it to low-limit players, or very experienced
