10/22/09 – Tokwiro Enterprises subsidiary and member of the Cereus online poker network Ultimatebet.com is planning to warm up the competitive atmosphere in Europe with the launch of UltimateBet.de, a dedicated German language information website that will outline the company’s all new series of live poker tournaments destined for Germany and the Czech Republic.

Company spokesmen said the inaugural live event will be a Euro 25 buy-in Texas Hold'Em tournament hosted in Cologne, Germany on October 24th with a Mercedes Smart Car on the prizelist.
A further tournament is planned for November 11th in Aulendorf, Germany, with prizes yet to be decided.
“We want our German players to feel as welcomed and as much a part of the Ultimate Bet community as their North American poker peers, and our live events will help create familiarity with the UB brand and the company that we are today, with an emphasis on security, safety, and the welfare of our players,” said Stephan Reschke, Ultimate Bet’s Marketing Manager for Germany.
Reschke revealed that the live tournaments in Germany recognise the growing importance of the region, and Ultimatebet will shift host venues throughout the country each weekend, with a range of affordable buy-ins and attractive prize pools. Monthly Euro 10 000 guaranteed tournaments will also be held at the Casino Flamingo, located conveniently close to the German border with the Czech Republic.
The live venues will also provide a way for Ultimate Bet’s German players to meet each other face-to-face rather than just in the online poker room, said Reschke.
Ultimate Bet is a USA-friendly online poker site and its traffic tends to peak during North American evening hours, but the development of a live tournament series in Europe should create a considerable amount of growth for the company in the future, he added.
