UltimateBet releases new Mac software client

Wednesday, 2 September 2009

Macs (computers not raincoats) have always looked great and boasted many fantastic features. Unfortunately, poker sites have lagged behind somewhat in catering to Apple users. Now Ultimate Bet has joined Full Tilt and Poker Stars in offering specific poker software aimed directly at Mac users.

Their new UB Mac client will allow Apple users to enjoy all the facilities and features that are on offer to their PC using counterparts including access to all the ring games, satellites, single and multi-table Hold‘em tournaments. UB has also launched a No Downloads Poker Games option that allows PC and Mac users to play anywhere online through their browser, without the need to download anything.

“Our company strives to make our poker room accessible to as many people as possible, and we recognize that Apple computers have a growing market share in the personal computing industry. In response to this trend we have developed an all new download poker application specifically for the Mac Operating System,” said Tokwiro Chief Operating Officer Paul Leggett. “As a Mac user, the only real limitation I have found is that a lot of poker applications will not run on the Mac OS. With UB Mac, players will enjoy the same incredible user experience that PC users currently have, and we remain committed to ongoing development of our Mac online poker client to ensure it is the best in the business.”

“A few weeks back, I got the news I've been waiting for...UB for Mac is ready for beta testing! I immediately downloaded the application and I was up and running in no time,” said Team UB poker pro and Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian. “I’m a Mac nerd, and most of my buddies also swear by Apple Mac; it's been a constant frustration trying to get them to buy virtual Windows programs so they can play on UB. Well, no more virtual anything. It's UB Mac and it's kicking ass. It's blazing fast on my MacBook already. Spread the word my friends, UB for Mac is here, so get on it!”

The new software will be available for download from Ultimate Bet. Sign-up to UB and receive one of the most generous offers in online poker where UB will match your first deposit by 111% - up to $1100.
