Ultimate Poker Deals 10-Millionth Hand

LAS VEGAS, NV - Ultimate Poker dealt its 10-millionth hand of real money online poker at 10:22 a.m. PST on UltimatePoker.com after a little over three months of live play.

The historic 10-millionth hand was played at a 25-cent / 50-cent no limit hold ‘em table. The victor, “SteveKelly,” won $6.85 with an ace high during the hand, along with an additional $5,000 prize from Ultimate Poker to celebrate the monumental moment. Each remaining player at the table also received $500 for being a part of the historic hand. Beginning at the nine-millionth hand, Ultimate Poker gave away $23,000 during a series of 21 cash prizes leading up to the 10-millionth hand.

“It’s incredible to be talking about our 10-millionth hand only three months after opening the doors. It gives us a good opportunity to look back at how far we’ve come and an even better excuse to run a great promotion,” remarked Ultimate Gaming Chief Marketing Officer Joe Versaci.

Ultimate Gaming made history on April 30, becoming the first company in the United States to offer legal and secure online poker. On July 25, the online gaming company received final approval from the Nevada Gaming Commission for its real money online poker product, which offers an exhilarating and secure online poker experience to anyone age 21 and over located in the state of Nevada. Players in Nevada can play now at UltimatePoker.com, while any player in the world can sign up and deposit in advance of visiting Nevada.
