Unibet has opted to remove its NL800 and PL800 high stakes online poker games in an effort to protect players and the site's ecology.

David Pomroy, Head of Poker at Unibet, explained the company’s decision as a proactive measure.

“Our main priority has always been to safeguard the ecology of our site as everything we do is ultimately built on that foundation. The addition of NL800 and PL800 had contributed to short-handed games and slightly faster loss rates of recreational players at our higher stakes. Although the situation was by no means critical, we decided it was best to act on that trend sooner rather than later.”

Unibet, based out of Malta, is a part of Kindred Group - an online gambling operator which consists of 13 brands along with Maria Casino, Stan James, 32Red, and iGame.  The company was founded in 1997.
