Ultima Poker software
Ultima Poker has nice, convenient and intuitively clear software that even some second-tier rooms cannot boast of. There are some little bugs but they can be blamed on the newness of the project. Also, it is important to note that the room doesn’t support statistics collecting programs for the opponents (Hold’em Manager and Poker Tracker) and any other supportive programs, which can help to increase a number of the weak players at the tables.
Especially for fans of games on mobile devices, Ultima Poker has launched a mobile application for Android, which is currently being tested. You can become a participant of testing the mobile client yourself and get a financial reward for it; read more about it in a special material.
