Undeterred by the crisis its sister poker company Absolute Poker is currently facing following charges of cheating through flaws in a software upgrade, Ultimate Poker has launched its own software upgrade. The site uses a different software to that deployed by its stable-mate.

The upgrade brings to the table a host of new online poker features designed to significantly enhance the overall experience for the poker playing community. Spokesman George MacLean described the upgrade as "ground-breaking" with new features that include:

• A new resizable poker table function enabling poker players to expand their viewing area

• The ability to tile and cascade poker tables for maximum organization

• An option to save poker hand histories directly to a poker player's hard drive

• A unique poker hand history video player allowing online poker players to relive a win… or a brutal bad beat

Existing Ultimatebet.com players will automatically receive the poker software update the next time they load the UltimateBet game. New players can download poker software for free from UltimateBet.com. UltimateBet boasts over 2 million registered players
