“By combining the online accessibility of Ultimate Poker with the classic Vegas feel of the El Cortez we’re giving new and existing players a different way to experience the game of poker,” she added.

Ultimate Poker recently launched a similar agreement with Peppermill Resort Spa Casino and its four additional Nevada properties.

These partnerships now give players the opportunity to deposit and cash out at over 20 convenient locations around the state, including El Cortez, Station Casinos and Peppermill Resorts.

Ultimate Poker also announced it is bringing players in Nevada and New Jersey an exciting new promotion for online play in both states – The Big Ten and Triple Play.

Now through July 31, Ultimate Poker players in Nevada and New Jersey will each compete to earn a share of 10,000 U-Dollars per state by completing the following goals during Triple Play:

• Play in 100 raked hands at a Triple Play Ring Game Table;

• Win 1 Triple Play Sit and Go;

• Win 1 Multi Table Tournament (excluding satellites and free rolls).

Players who complete all three goals will be awarded one share of the 10,000 U$ prize. Players may earn multiple shares by completing all three goals multiple times. At the end of the promotion, all shares will be counted and the 10,000 U$ will be awarded based on the number of shares each player has obtained. For complete details, visit www.UltimatePoker.com.
