Ultimate Bet - No Longer Recommended

Ultimate Bet was around from 2000, and attracted a surge of new players on the back of high profile endorsements from the likes of poker pros Phil Helmuth Jnr, Annie Duke and Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott - and on the site's reputation for handing out some of the very biggest deposit bonuses in the industry, which were generally around 20 times what players are offered at the biggest site, PokerStars, for example (though it seems other rooms, including Stars, have started to follow UB's lead, see our PokerStars review for more details).

UB was the key victim of "Black Friday" when the FBI seized the website. UB's failure to return all of its players' money in a timely fashion shattered all faith in the company. If you're playing on-line for the first time, you are probably better off signing up with one of the big two - Pokerstars or Party.
