Ultimate Bet has come a long way to become a major online poker room, and after its 2008 merger with fellow poker room Absolute Poker, it’s now even bigger and better than ever. This poker room sponsors some of the biggest names in Canada and in the industry, from Phil Hellmuth to Annie Duke, and puts on a live tournament every year in Aruba. Canadian players will feel right at home at Ultimate Bet, which is licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission, located and operated close to home.
Games and tournaments
The variety and sheer number of choices available in terms of online poker tournaments at Ultimate Bet is impressive. From classic games like Texas Hold’em, 7 Card Stud and Omaha, Ultimate Bet also offers plenty of other options for players looking for something a little less familiar. Mixed games including HOSE and HORSE draw big crowds and offer options for just about any budget. If you want a little break from poker, blackjack is also available.
