Ultimate Bet Poker Celebrates 10th Anniversary by Awarding $100,346 Jackpot

Share this
It seems Ultimate Bet Poker is always in the headlines, usually for some mega promotion or the latest antics of their resident Poker Brat.  But right now they are making big news because of their huge 10th Anniversary celebration.

To celebrate, Ultimate Bet has announced their latest big promotion, “From a Dime to a $10 Million Dream” event where you can win a seat to the World Series of Poker. And like the event title says, you can get there for just one thin dime! It all takes place in the special step qualifying tournaments taking place now at Ultimate Bet Poker. Everyone has a shot because the buy-in is so low, that you can invest a pocket full of dimes until you climb the ten steps to emerge a winner! And when you do win, not only will you find yourself flying off to Las Vegas for the WSOP main event, but you will have $2,000 in your pocket for spending money too, making your prize package worth $12,000!!

And if all that wasn’t enough, if you battle your way to the top and become the 2009 WSOP champ, you will score even bigger when you snag a fantastic and exclusive 10 Year sponsorship deal with Ultimate Bet Poker - worth a massive $10 Million dollars! Join the ranks of Ultimate Bet Poker Pros Phil Helmuth and Annie Duke when you become the newest Ultimate Bet Pro!

Card Room Consultant Annie Duke says, “STEP tournaments will see UB qualifying record numbers of online players for this year’s WSOP, and with our $10 Million player contract on the table, we’re excited about the prospect of discovering poker’s next big thing. Ten years on, we aim to grow our reputation as the home of the game’s most decorated champions, and our standing as the top choice for the world’s best poker players.”

It doesn’t seem it could get any better, but it does because to keep the 10 year party rolling, Ultimate Bet Poker will be awarding an extra special bonus to the winners of the step satellites!

The first 10 players to conquer all 10 WSOP STEP Tournaments will also receive a super bonus of a $8,500 Aruba Poker Classic 2009 Main Event package! This extra bonus prize package includes the $5,500 Main Event entry plus $3,000 towards travel and accommodation expenses! This could bump your winnings up to a grand total of a whopping $20,500 and all for just one DIME!! Not to mention all you could win when you place in the money at these mega events!

It can all be yours, but first you have to download Ultimate Bet Poker and receive a special deposit bonus of 111% up to $1,100! Now that is a LOT of dimes!
Hard to believe it has only been 10 years since Ultimate Bet made their debut. Since then, hardly a week goes by that they haven’t made headlines and this week is no exception! Not only all the WSOP news, but they have also announced the latest Bad Beat Jackpot winner!

Since becoming part of the Cereus Poker Network , the bad beat jackpots are huge on Ultimate Bet Poker and Absolute Poker. Players have come to expect the near million dollar massive jackpots and the excitement is electric when one gets hit!  That is what happened on Sunday February 15th at 12:55 EST when Ultimate Bet Poker player SFGGARS busted the $100,346.90 Bad Beat jackpot! Pocketing a cool $308,156.46 for winning with his losing hand, the lucky 36 year old player from San Francisco, California had no exciting plans for his windfall of cash. He did say he would be paying bills and treating his bride of six months to a special evening out on the town.

Then over at Absolute Poker, HDCOWBOY celebrated Valentine's Day in a big way when he busted the Bad Beat Jackpot.  By snapping the $813,431 Jackpot, HDCOWBOY pocketed a whopping $264,418.89 which will buy a lot of Valentines candy!

Check out all the exciting Bad Beat cash tables today at Ultimate Bet and Absolute Poker, where you can win big – even when you lose!
