Unibet was the big winner at the 2014 EGR Awards, taking home three awards including the Innovation in Poker trophy. The award is particularly significant for Unibet, coming less than 4 months after the successful launch of their standalone poker platform. The move saw Unibet break away from the Microgaming network in order to provide a more welcoming platform for new players to the game; so far the response from the poker community has been overwhelmingly positive.

Unibet’s Head of Poker, Martin Stalros: “A truly innovative poker software, with features like missions, the ability to change your identity and the blocking of tracking software, is something that we felt the poker world was missing. We are very happy with the way the poker community has responded and feel that the award is yet further confirmation that the industry is ready for a modern poker client.”

“The next step for us is to push on from here to challenge the existing online poker hierarchy. However, this project is still young and we are looking forward to driving innovation in poker for many years ahead.”

The EGR Awards is held annually, recognising and celebrating the most noteworthy eGaming providers of the past 12 months. The judging panel’s comments on Unibet’s achievements:

“Unibet’s move to launch a stand-alone platform with a large number of recreational-focused features and innovative loyalty programme gave them a clear winning proposition.”

“Unibet’s poker re-launch campaign moved away from clichéd poker imagery and presented the game as a fun, new experience with some impressive business results.”

Unibet launch revolutionary new online poker software

By admin / April 29, 2014

Unibet have taken one of the boldest moves in online poker by leaving their existing Microgaming network to create their own level playing field.

Over the last 5 years the game on existing networks has got a ton harder to beat due to pros and semi-pros using tracking software and HUDs (heads up displays) in order to find soft tables and sit on the left of weaker players which makes it miserable for amateurs.

The new software prevents people from tracking hand histories and using a HUD  such as PokerTracker or Holdem Manager. In fact you can only physically see the last 500 hands played. You can’t take notes on opponents and you can’t tell which players are bad by no waiting for the big blind or not auto-topping up as these features are not available on purpose. It’s super refreshing and means you actually have to read the table and opponents such as in live poker. Continue reading
