Online gambling site launches UB Army program
As part of most online gambling site’s usual push to get their members into the upcoming poker tournaments, online poker site, UltimateBet has launched their unique version. Their qualifiers for the 2008 WSOP also includes the UB ARMY, a new poker program dubbed 'a force to be reckoned with' by the online poker room.
"We're looking for a few good men and women to join the UB ARMY and show this year's World Series of Poker what UltimateBet players are truly made of," said UltimateBet spokesperson George MacLean.
Those players that win the $12,000 Main Event prize package will automatically be enrolled in the UB ARMY and be a part of the ultimate experience of poker camaraderie.
Being in the UB ARMY includes a Main Event Grand Entrance at the WSOP with Phil Hellmuth and fellow comrades, UltimateBet parties and access to the UltimateBet Barracks, UB ARMY gear including Camo wear, UB Army tags, and t-shirt and Boot camp sessions located in the UB Barracks with online poker pros and Phil Hellmuth.
Soldiers will share in the successes of both Online Team UB and the field of UltimateBet players. The online poker site will match 25% and 10% of the two groups' winnings, respectively, and distribute the cash among fellow UB ARMY comrades.
Any UB ARMY member through to the Main Event final table will win an additional $200,000 and the UB ARMY soldier who lasts the longest in the Main Event will win their spot in UltimateBet’s 2008 Aruba Poker Classic.
