Unibet, the Stockholm-listed online gambling company launches their biggest promotion to date with the release of Unibet Poker 2.0 which is scheduled to hit the market on December 1, 2016.
Unibet made the daring move back in February 2014 of moving away from Microgaming Poker network and launching its own stand-alone Relax Gaming powered poker network. Now the company celebrates the launch of its second version titled Unibet Poker 2.0 to its customers.
The ‘fastest growing online poker room in the world’ gave a sneak peek of the new software back in August this year at the Unibet Open in Copenhagen where they unveiled their new and improved one of a kind poker gaming experience. A closed beta testing was then done with a selected group of players to iron out any issues that may pop up. The original launch was October 3rd but it was pushed back to December to make sure everything ran smoothly ensuring the best quality and experience for their customers.
Their confidence and excitement in this new software have prompted them to go on a splurge with the promotion which will be accompanied by an ‘Around the World’ promotion that entails €250,000 handout in pre-Christmas goodies. The major prize here will be a two ticket, 28-day around the world trip giveaway with the winners flying business class to see the Seven Wonders of the World. The package has a value of over €35k.
The promotion goes on to have 33 players winning trips of a lifetime and a thousand other players receiving an array of goodies. These treats include live tickets to the Unibet Open Main Event where they will receive the opportunity of playing poker under the supervision of the Unibet Tournament Director and former World Series of Poker November Nine member, Kenny Hallaert.
The Unibet Poker 2.0 presents a software that is built mostly on HTML5 platform instead of Adobe Air like the first version which should reduce the crashes that were experienced in the first one. In addition to this, it boasts of a new loyalty scheme, integrated missions, improved graphics, multi-table options on mobile and tablet and lots more designed to please the Unibet poker player.
Head of Poker at Unibet, Andrew West stated in a press release: “Unibet Poker 2.0 was built from the ground up and designed to provide us with a foundation upon which we can seamlessly add in-game features to continuously provide the best experience possible for all of our players,”
“We’re looking forward to collecting feedback on the new software and hope that our players will see the potential for 2017 and beyond,” he said.
