Unibet to boldly go where no Swedish poker room has gone before

TAGs: David Pomroy, Unibet

Unibet, the Swedish online poker room, releases details of an online multi-table tournament equipped with a brand new space theme.

The excitement of waiting for the release of an Oasis single was one of the highlights of my youth.

It was the B-sides.

Nobody created better B-sides than A-sides, that was insane, but Oasis did.Unibet to boldly go where no Swedish poker room has gone before

It was genius.

They were brilliant, except for D’Yer Wanna be a Spaceman, I’m not sure what happened there. And who would want to be a spaceman? Sure the earth looks cool, but that comes with 16 sunrises and sunsets, so you had better pack your sleep mask.

Your muscles weaken, your bones lose calcium, your eyesight deteriorates because your eyeballs change shape, and all the blood gushes to your head because gravity stops pulling it down, preventing you from pulling anything north or south.

Fortunately, Unibet has your back.

Beginning October 2, the Swedish online gambling authority is changing their online MTT schedule, and it’s going to come wrapped in a new space theme.

Unibet went solo three-years ago. Relax Gaming helped them create a piece of kit that has won them the EGR Software of the Year award every year since. But the focus has been on growing cash game crowds and tinkering with the kit.

On Oct 2, the focus switches to online MTT’s, and from Oct 8, Unibet will launch a series of Sunday Majors for the first time.

Here they are:

David Pomroy, Head of Poker for Unibet, told the press, that the new online MTT schedule, theme and lobby is a direct result of feedback from players and Unibet ambassadors. Pomroy also pledged that his team would continue to listen to feedback and tweak and touch up where necessary.

The next stage in the evolution of Unibet is to create a new and improved qualifying structure for their live events, with a decision made to group all low buy-in qualifiers under one umbrella. The date for the new change is currently under lock and key.

Almost as exciting as waiting for that single.

Almost.
