Unibet Poker has been a successful addition to the Microgaming Poker Network, though player traffic didn’t get the boost you’d expect from joining a major network, and traffic still lags to this day. Unibet’s casino/sportsbook is far more popular than the poker room, so weak play is guaranteed, and the software is available in two dozen languages , including English, Swedish, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Dutch, but still, Unibet has a hard time drawing in players.
The software at Unibet is the same as any on the Microgaming site: well-designed but nothing to write home about. One thing poker players appreciate is easy to navigate lobbies and tournaments, and Microgaming software offers that in spades.
Poker players will be glad to see lot of table options, like note-taking, multi-table launcher, auto buy-in, hand history, statistics, and the ability to play poker right in your browser as opposed to through the poker client.
It’s abnormal that Unibet’s sportsbook and casino customers don’t wander into the cash poker games like at other hybrid sportsbook/poker rooms. The customers that do wander in put up as weak of a fight as you’d expect anywhere else. Still, some reviewers report that Unibet Poker has the softest competition of any site on the Microgaming Network. The low volume of traffic pretty much cancels out that bonus.
Peak traffic at Unibet is a mediocre 400 – 500 cash tables, with most of the action at microstakes. Not a bad deal if you like to wipe out the fish at small stakes tables, but if you’re looking for more action, Unibet can be a frustrating poker room.
Thankfully, tournament play at Unibet is far more popular than the cash games, with tourneys drawing in as many as 10,000 poker players at once. When that happens, it isn’t uncommon for tournament players to jump ship and join some cash games. If you want more ring game action, wait for a big tourney and watch the live players in ring games go through the roof.
The new Unibet Poker Club allows members to qualify for a bonus every week. You earn VIP points playing poker between Monday and Sunday, and the bonus you qualify for depends on how many VIP points you earned. Unibet then automatically sends you your bonus from the previous week every Monday. Players who are Gold tier or higher can exchange VIP points for cash at any time.
VIP points are based on every dollar of rake or tournament fees you generate, at a rate of 10 VIP points per dollar. Each VIP point is worth 0.005 USD (half a cent), so every dollar of rake or tourney fees is worth $0.05. You can spend these VIP points on buy-ins to most of Unibet’s tournaments, merchandise at the Unibet Shop, and a few other ways.
The Poker Club program is popular, especially among players with higher VIP status. At the bottom tier, it is difficult to turn your generated rake or tournament fees into anything valuable.
Unfortunately for Unibet’s players, they’re fairly light on bonuses & promotions. Unibet has a Bad Beat Jackpot and offers some freerolls, but that’s about it. No reload bonuses.
