Unibet Poker launched its own standalone software on February 19, 2014 after leaving MPN – formerly known as the Microgaming Network. Becoming independent has allowed Unibet to create and adapt its software with recreational, fun-loving players in mind.
Unibet has been a major player in the online gaming world since 1999, and boasts a customer base of several million from more than 150 countries. In addition to poker, Unibet has a busy sports betting site, casino and even offers bingo.
One thing that sets Unibet aside from its opposition is the plethora of ongoing promotions available to its players. These promotions change on a regular basis, but include:
- Multi Table Tournament leaderboards
- Special poker-related missions
- Daily freeroll frenzies
- Weekly Sportsbook freeroll
Games Offered at Unibet
Currently, Unibet Poker offers No Limit Texas Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha cash games, sit & go tournaments (heads-up and five-seats) and multi-table tournaments. It also spreads Banzai, Unibet Poker’s offering of the “fast-fold” poker variant, and HexaPro jackpot sit & go games.
Cash games start with blinds from €0.02/€0.04 and increase up to €2/€4, while tournaments start as low as €0.01 and increase up to €1,100 during the site's online festivals.
Unibet also offers "Fast Poker" which is its take on the fast-fold poker craze where players are whisked away to a different table with new opponents when they fold, which they can do as soon as they have seen their holding. They are then dealt new hole cards at their new table, which significantly speeds up the action and allows loyalty points to be earned at a much faster rate as a result.
Sit & Go tournaments are available on heads-up and five-handed tables with buy-ins ranging from €1 and increasing to €25. Jackpot sit & go tournaments are also available with buy-ins of €1 to €100. These are known as HexaPro and can pay out up to €100,000.
Notable Unibet Features
As part of Unibet Poker’s mission to promote a fun environment for players, all third-party software is banned. This means no tracking software – such as Holdem Manager and PokerTracker – or Heads-Up Displays are allowed or work at the site.
Also, instead of choosing your seat in case games, the software automatically and randomly seats you to prevent what is known as “bum-hunting,” where stronger players sit in position on lesser-skilled players in an attempt to win their money faster.
Players at Unibet poker can create Poker Identities that allow them to change names and avatars up to three times per day. This is perfect if you have been caught bluffing too often or think that an opponent has got the measure of you!
Many micro and low-stakes cash game players moan about high levels of rake in comparison to the stakes they are playing so Unibet Poker has bucked that trend and offers some of the lowest rake for €0.02/€0.04 and €0.05/€0.10 cash games. Futhermore, Unibet Poker automatically halves the rake cap when only two or three players are dealt into a hand.
