The much-anticipated Unibet Poker 2.0 software client will hit all markets Dec. 1, 2016, and with it comes one of the most exciting online poker promos in ages.
Not only will players get to log in to the next generation of the award-winning software Unibet Poker is also running its biggest-ever promotion.
Dubbed 'Around the World' it will pay out over €250,000 in prizes capped by a 28-day business-class trip for two to see the Seven Wonders of the World.
New Hand Replayer, Integrated Missions
First things first: When Unibet players log in on Dec. 1 they'll automatically be prompted to update their software to the 2.0 version. What they'll find on the new client should impress.
New features will impress.
Among the changes are a new hand replayer, fully integrated missions, improved graphics and multi-tabling options for players on desktop, mobile or tablet.
Along with the obvious improved functionality will also be an improved and revamped loyalty scheme. What they won't see but will benefit from too are improvements to the back-end functionality and the overall stability of the client.
"Unibet Poker 2.0 was built from the ground up," says Andrew West, Unibet's Head of Poker, "and designed to provide us with a foundation upon which we can seamlessly add in-game features to continuously provide the best experience possible for all of our players.
"We’re looking forward to collecting feedback on the new software and hope that our players will see the potential for 2017 and beyond."
Unibet's complete shift in direction over the past few years towards the recreational poker player is also paying off. Player growth has been substantial, highlighted by a 65% year-on-year increase in Q3 2016.
Once-in-a-Lifetime Travel Opps
If you've ever dreamed of dropping everything and winging around the world, here's your chance to do it on Unibet's dime. Along with the software release Unibet is doling out over €250,000 in prizes from tournament and cash game tickets to laptops to Unibet Open packages.
