The Absolute Poker and UB Skin Contest Produces Talented Winners

Share this
Recently, both Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet Poker held a creative contest inviting their online players to design a table skin for each poker room. After a multitude of interesting entries and hard choices, the winning results are now in!

The unique challenge presented by the contest drew the interest of students, artists and graphic designers. Entries submitted were required not only to be creative, but also to be appropriate and respectful of brand logos, while being pleasingly eye-catching to the online poker player and maintaining flexibility for use on all table formats; including ring games, multi-table, heads-up or short-handed tournaments.

The objective of the contest was to give both poker sites a new look coupled with bringing together the world of design with the world of online poker. After reviewing the many entries submitted by designers, 29-year-old ‘PATATTACK333’ a CG Artist from Arizona, emerged as the winner for the UB site, while a 32-year-old poker player and entrepreneur from Miami, Florida known as ‘JUSTIN749’ achieved the win for Absolute Poker.

The table skin designed by each winner will be featured on the respective poker site and will allow players to use the newly designed table skins during their online play. Therefore, literally thousands of players on both Absolute Poker and UB will be able to experience and enjoy the creativity of the contest winners. All entrants into the skin design contest were required to submit their designs on the Facebook Page for either UB or Absolute Poker. If you want to see if you agree with the judges, the submitted entries for each site may be viewed under the photos tab of each poker site’s Facebook page.

The winning design for UB is titled Spaceship and provides UB players a futuristic view of online poker play. The Absolute Poker winning design was inspired by the magnificent artwork of Michelangelo. Regarding his win at Absolute Poker, JUSTIN749 stated, “When I saw the Poker Table Skin Design Contest I knew it was for me. I put long hours and hard work into creating these skins, but to have it pay off like this is a dream come true.” He then added, “I am very proud to have something I worked on get recognized by Absolute and honored to have my skin on the site for everyone to use if they wish. Thanks to Absolute Poker for having great promotions that are like no other, and now I am really pumped to go to Vegas to represent AP.”

In addition to having their new designs put to use on the poker sites, each player was awarded a prize that consisted of a VIP package to Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker that included flights for two people, as well as four nights of accommodations and an invitation to attend the UB VIP party. And to make sure they had some cash to spend in Vegas, both winners were also awarded with $1,000 in cash.
