Back again as promised. Using my buddys account, we started with $50.00 again at Omaha Hi-Lo on Ultimate Bet. After those three days, we were up to $1,743.22 total. Upon request to cash out, AGAIN we were met (different account this time) with the claims of SUSPICIOUS play. That's twice we have been told that our accounts were closed because of suspicious play. I managed to contact that employee who previously emailed me (using his phone number and not an email), and he said he had been fired. Ultimate Bet monitors employees, and any employee giving information as to corrupt activity on UB, is dismissed. This man had gotten fired, thanks to his decency and honesty. Ultimate Bet is obviously still very corrupt. And for what it is worth to those foolish enough to play there, on one of my hands when we played using my buddys account, we had a Full House Aces over Jacks, (and we had a Jack of Hearts in our four cards), and then we lost if you can believe just how corrupt UB really is - to a hand that won with FOUR JACKS. Even tho we had a Jack of Hearts in our hands, UB PAID the four Jack hand winner, even against our complaints. Player had pair of Jacks in hand, and a JACK of Hearts (card we had in our hand) APPEARED on the River. When we protested with table, hand number, and precise details of play, Ultimate Bet answered as follows: "We cannot confirm your complaint. Hand details are not kept for that period of time. We cannot see merit to your claims." (It had been four hours, yet they claimed they don't keep hand histories that long.) And we noticed that several bot players win consistently, even when playing idiot hands. Hands that require inside draw hits, two cards to make a hand against hand that trips are in play, and etc. and etc. We also noticed that when these players win, there is a table freeze briefly, but still a table freeze, as if play has been interrupted. My virus scanner went off and claimed that this site has a Trojan active. We played further using Norton, Windows One Care and Microsoft Security Essentials, at different tables. They all found that active Trojan, or, and at least one active Virus. UB obviously not only used bots, they are also manipulating game play. Corruption is corruption, no matter what anyone says. For what it is worth, the employee who got fired, also told me UBs true REAL PLAYER accounts only number fewer less that 400 TOTAL! So whatever figures they claim above that, are BOT players working against you.

Started with a $100.00 playing Omaha Hi-Lo. Got up to $1,571.77 after two days of play. Tried to cash out and Ultimate Bet refused. Claims my play is suspicious. No information given for such claims against me, simply SUSPICIOUS play. Later, got an email from an employee who is thoroughly disgusted with Ultimate Bet. That employee showed me in email where I played on average, against 70% bots when I played at virtually any table. Reason my play was SUSPICIOUS, is supposedly, it's literally impossible to win when 70% of table is stacked against me. So in essence, that is the basis for my so-called SUSPICIOUS play. They refused to send me my money and have in retaliation against my complaints, closed my account. I'll list more emails shortly showing what happened when I played on my buddys account, and it will show further corruption on the part of Ultimate Bet. For those who wish to know, I play regularly in Atlantic City and the Orleans in Vegas. I win regularly too at 3/6, 4/8 and 8/16 tables with and without half/full kills. Average $7K per month.

Ultimate Bet Room Review

Ultimate Overview

Ultimate Bet (now formally known as UB) is a poker skin of the Cereus Poker Network. There are a wide variety of cash games at UB. Players may choose between Hold ‘Em, Omaha, Stud, and mixed games. These games run anywhere from $.01/$.02 to $200/$400 for No Limit Hold ‘Em & Omaha and up to $100/$200 for Stud and mixed games. However, games run seldom at the nosebleed stakes.

As for their Sit & Go tournament tables, there are also a variety of stakes and games to be found. The single-table tourney stakes are as low as $0.10+$0.01 and as high as $5,000+$200. The games available for play at these tourneys are Hold ‘Em, Omaha, Razz, and seven-card stud. As for the multi-table sit & goes, they go up to $65+6 (for a 45-player tournament) with no Seven-card Stud or Razz available. Lastly, the heads-up sit & goes range from $5+$0.25 to $5000+$100 with only Hold ‘Em and Omaha available to play.

Ultimate Bet has become one of the more popular poker rooms to run great scheduled tournaments. Many of these tournaments are freerolls for players at any level. Once you have a bankroll to play with, you can buy into a tournament for $0.25+$.02 up to $1000+$50 for players with a larger bankroll. UB has a tournament for everybody.

UB also has a unique points system called ‘RAI$E’ that allows players to reach different levels, which in turn unlocks some extra bonuses. Here’s how it works:

- You can only earn points through real money games.
- Ultimate Points are redeemed at a rate of $.007 per point.
- Players must meet the minimum/maximum redemption amounts to qualify. The poker room managers periodically update these amounts.
- Your account is automatically debited the number of points used.

These points also allow you to reach three different status levels referred to as: Contender, Legend, and Icon. Contenders receive a point multiplier of 3x and must have 500 monthly points to qualify. They can receive periodic reload bonuses (getting extra money back for playing in real money games) and an extra $75 Refer-A-Friend bonus. They can also transfer money freely to Absolute Poker in order to maximize profits. Lastly, they can redeem points for up to $50 monthly.

Legend players receive a point multiplier of 4x and need 2500 monthly points to qualify. This status has everything that the Contender has, plus: exclusive tournament invites, VIP Host (a personal representative on the site), cash for points up to $250, and a 10% discount on all store merchandise.

Finally, they have the Icon status. This level has a multiplier of 5x and needs 10,000 monthly points to qualify. Once again this resembles the Legend benefits except for: cash for points up to $1000; a 9% per annum interest bearing account on average daily balances greater than $1000; exclusive invitations; and poker trips to the best tournaments. If you are up to it, this is one heck of a deal!

To see complete details on Ultimate Bet's RAI$E Program, click this link to check out our Ultimate Bet RAI$E page which describes the entire program.

Ultimate Bet also recently opened their own Ultimate Bet Store and you can purchase items with your UltimatePoints. They offer anything from clothing to iPods; digital cameras; televisions; watches; and even golf clubs! However, the amount of points required to purchase items seems pretty outrageous and much higher compared to other online point stores.
