Ultimate Bet has a good thing going, and it seems like they are really beginning to hit their stride as one of the top poker sites on the internet. With celebrity backers such as Phil Hellmuth and Annie Duke, more customers are coming every day for the chance to play a game against a poker professional. Unlike many sites where the celebrity endorsers are on only once every few months, you will find “Team Ultimate Bet” on at regular intervals. It’s not that difficult to say you played poker with one of the pros. Saying that you beat them, however, is a completely different story.
Ultimate Bet’s software is simply beautiful. It’s slick-looking, it’s fast and it’s effective. It is everything that good poker software should be. If you’re the type of person who is into the mechanics of the programs almost as much as the mechanics of the game, this is undoubtedly the site for you. On the negative, for a site that is doing so well and has so many things going for it, there is no live support. The e-mail support is handled very well, with most questions being answered and returned in under 15 minutes, but sometimes phone support is nice when problems are difficult to explain. That is the only thing that gives this site an A instead of an A+.
Your winnings will be to you in a day or two, and most payment methods are accepted. This site is incredibly careful with players’ money, and there have been no reported incidents of money problems for a player at Ultimate Bet Poker.
