Unibet is part of the well-known Microgaming poker network. Unibet has been in the online gaming industry since 1997, and is licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority (LGA) of Malta. Unibet Group Plc is a publically listed company which trades on the NASDAQ OMX Nordic Exchange in Stockholm. Taking all these points into account, Unibet is a solid choice for your online gaming needs.
Unibet boasts a wide range of poker games, including No Limit Holdem, Limit Holdem, Pot Limit Omaha, Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, 7 card stud, 5 card stud, 5 card draw and Razz. Most of the action is at shorthanded (6 max) tables, but there are also heads up tables and the occasional full ring table running.
Stakes range from €0.02/.04 to €50/100 for most games, so players will always be able to find games in their comfort zone and beyond.
The average amount of players connected to the site is approximately 1,200, with about 2,500 at peak times. Their daily tournaments typically get between 100 and 400 players. Their largest regularly scheduled Sunday tournament boasts a €75,000 guarantee with a buy in of €200+20. Unibet also runs satellites to major live events such as the WSOP, World Sit ‘n’ Go Masters in Prague and their own Unibet Open London tournament.
VIP points at Unibet are earned at a rate of 10 per $1 in generated rake. You can use your points to purchase a huge variety of special items in the Unibet Shop, buy into certain multi-table tournaments or redeem them for cash at a rate of 33 VIP points per $1.
The rewards system is quite nice for players of all stakes. There are four tiers of Poker Club: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.
Bronze membership is automatic, with an extra VIP point reward based on 5% of your rake that week. Silver membership requires 250 points and will double your weekly extra VIP point reward. Earning 500 points in a week will earn you Gold membership, which gives players a straight 17% rakeback in cash. Earning 2000 points a week earns Platinum status, which gives players 30% rakeback and a three week grace period in which to retain this highest level.
Raking €500 or more in a calendar month will also get you pre-registered for exclusive UPlus freeroll tournaments, up to three in total. In these special tournaments, the more you rake, the more you can win! A percentage of the rake you generate each month will go towards the prize pools of these tournaments.
