Ultimate Bet is hosting a Huge Expo

Share this
Ultimate Bet has announced that they will be sponsoring a huge event in Madison, Wisconsin called the Mad City Men’s Expo.  The Mad City Men’s Expo will not only feature a 1,000 person poker tournament, but it will also have a lot of non poker-related things such as 100 different exhibits.  The exhibits will revolve around the latest trucks, cars, motorcycles, boats, music, tools, health and fitness equipment, and home entertainment systems on the market.  The Mad City Men’s Expo will be held at the Alliant Energy Center on January 16th and 17th with the action lasting for 48 hours.

As if being able to see all of the coolest motor vehicles and other gadgets isn’t enough, Ultimate Bet professionals Phil Hellmuth and Mark “Poker HO” Kroon will also be in attendance at the Expo.  Both of these players are from Madison and they will be hosting the Mad City Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament on January 17th.  

Mark Kroon is especially excited about the event as he said, “The Mad City Men’s Expo is a fabulous local initiative that I’m proud to support and excited to be representing Ultimate Bet at this event again.  I’ll be on the scout for any shining lights amongst the 1,000-strong field of this free-to-enter annual Mad City Poker Championship event.”  You can rest assured Kroon is serious when he says he’ll be scouting since Madison is known as a hotbed of great poker players.

Those who wish to get into this tournament and be noticed by Kroon and Hellmuth can do so by purchasing a $10 Expo ticket and being one of the first 1,000 people in attendance.  The Mad City Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament is absolutely free for these first 1,000 people and everyone who makes the final table will receive a UB t-shirt and hat for their efforts.  The winner of the tournament will have Mark Kroon present them with a $5,000 prestige watch and a Phil Hellmuth hockey jersey.  Even if you don’t get into the tournament, you can still meet Hellmuth and Kroon as well as attend an extremely entertaining Expo.

If you can’t attend the UB-sponsored Expo, you’ll want to sign up for Ultimate Bet’s poker room.  Those who sign up for Ultimate Bet through PokerWorks will get a huge 110% deposit bonus up to $1,100.  In addition to getting the deposit bonus of 110% up to $1,100, you’ll also get to take part in all of the fantastic UB tournaments and promotions.  

One of Ultimate Bet’s most popular tournaments is the $200,000 Guaranteed which takes place every Sunday.  The winner of this tournament always earns over $40,000 and those who place in the top 10 will get their name put on the UB website.  Ultimate Bet also hosts even larger events such as the Ultimate Bet Online Championship which pays out millions of dollars to its players over the course of 10 days.

Those who prefer land-based tournaments will be happy to know that Ultimate Bet also sends its players to the biggest tourneys and most exotic locations the poker world has to offer.  Those who win UB prize packages could be heading to the sandy beaches of Aruba or the bright lights of Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker.  The possibilities at Ultimate Bet are endless!
