Casting aside the trials and tribulations of its past involvement in online poker's biggest fraud scandal, Tokwiro Enterprises's major Internet poker site UltimateBet.com has launched a schedule of promotions designed to mark its tenth anniversary.
The celebrations include a significant $10 million sponsorship on the table for any player to grab at this year's World Series of Poker ("WSOP").
Ten years online has seen UltimateBet emerge as one of the most enduring names in the online poker business, and 2009 is primed to be a landmark 12 months as the online poker site clocks up a decade of premier service.
"This year, in UltimateBet's 10th year online, we remain dedicated to giving our players the ultimate online poker experience, while offering a range of unique promotions and life-changing prize money on the table," said Annie Duke, UltimateBet Card Room Consultant. "Our ten cent WSOP STEP qualifiers are just the beginning of a slew of exciting initiatives to be rolled out over the coming months that are sure to capture the attention of players across the globe and keep them coming back well beyond our 10th Anniversary."
The company has unveiled its latest online promotion, "From a Dime to a $10 Million Dream", in which players can win their way to the World Series Of Poker ("WSOP") on a $12 000 prize package for a ten cent investment.
The company is also upping the ante for all UB online qualifiers; battle your way to the top and become the 2009 WSOP champ to snag an extraordinary and exclusive 10 year sponsorship deal with UltimateBet worth an epic $10 Million. All players have to do to qualify for the $10 million promotion is register and wear UB gear throughout the entire WSOP Main Event, and take 1st place to walk away with the multi-million payday. All final table finishers stand to pocket extra cash for their effort, with a series of payouts as follows:
1st $10 million paid over 10 years 2nd $400 000 paid over 5 years 3rd $300 000 paid over 3 years 4th-9th $150 000 paid over 1 year
To keep the 10 year party rolling, UltimateBet will also be awarding an special bonus of an $8 500 Aruba Poker Classic 2009 Main Event package to the first 10 players to conquer all 10 WSOP STEP Tournaments. This bonus prize package bumps the overall winnings up to a grand total of $20 500 worth of landbased tournament buy ins, not counting the prize money that's on the table at these mega events..
