, as well as generous promotions, and a very simplistic VIP point system that rewards

Mac & Linux
The Unibet Poker software is developed by the Microgaming Network, providing a secure, reliable online gaming platform for poker players
. The Unibet Poker software is packed with all of the standard online poker features, including in-game player statistics, table statistics such as viewed-flop percentages viewable from the lobby, multi-tabling capabilities with re-sizable tables, and a selection of player avatars to choose from.
A number of past improvements to the Unibet online poker client have increased the usability of the Unibet Poker software. Players now have the ability to upload their own image for use as an avatar at Unibet Poker' online poker tables in .jpg, .png or .gif format, with a maximum file size of 3 MB. The graphics at the online poker tables are aesthetically pleasing, crisp and clean. The various options for both in-table and extraneous actions available within each table window are conveniently and intuitively arranged to avoid clutter.
Along with a PC-compatible download version, Unibet Poker also furnishes both Mac and PC users with a no-download flash poker
version. The instant-play flash-based Unibet Poker room is recommended for Mac OS X Darwin 7.9.0 and above, or Windows 2000 and higher. The Unibet no-download poker room requires Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari with ActiveX controls enabled, and Flash player 8 or higher installed.
At peak hours
The enormous online poker player traffic of the extremely popular Microgaming Network results in huge online poker tournaments, a constant stream of sit & gos, and some very loose online poker cash games; especially in the lower spectrum of the stakes. Even the single and multi-table tournaments tend to see rather wild, erratic game play; particularly from sportsbook patrons who are notoriously loose poker players.
No Limit Texas Hold'em, as with most online poker rooms
, is definitely the most popular game at Unibet Poker, with thousands of players drawn to the Unibet Poker Texas Hold'em cash games. Pot Limit Omaha also boasts hundreds of active players at any given time, and Limit Texas Hold'em fans will have no trouble finding a game. The less common games of 5 Card Draw Poker
and 7 Card Stud Poker
receive considerably lower attention, however, at peak times in the EU, players can often find active online poker tables even in the rarer game forms.
Unibet Poker provides players with numerous options for contacting the 24 hour customer support team. Players within the UK can reach customer support via freephone and freefax numbers. Players in other parts of the world can call or fax customer support at Unibet Poker's international numbers. A live chat feature allows online poker players to contact support through the Unibet Poker website, or the online poker software.
