Unibet PokerUnibet is becoming an increasingly popular skin on the Microgaming network due to its superb software, easy level of European competition and some excellent promotions. With a nightly peak of 3,000 cash game players and thousands more competing in an extensive tournament schedule, Unibet Poker has something for everyone. Now – with a new three-tiered Unibet Welcome Bonus – it has never been easier to take advantage of some of the free money paid out by online poker sites to attract new players.

Getting Started with Unibet

The first stage of playing online poker at Unibet is to access the Unibet Poker download. Although there is a Flash/Instant Play version of the Unibet Poker download for Mac players, the Unibet Poker download for Windows provides a fuller gaming experience, with more table features and access to the more uncommon games such as 5 Card Draw, 5 Card Stud and Razz. The Unibet Poker download for Windows can be accessed via the home page of Unibet´s poker site. Simply click on the red “Poker” button with the Windows logo to get started.

Tip: Download Poker Software before Creating Account

When you first click on the red “Poker” button to start the Unibet Poker download, you are taken to a page with a 1-2-3 step guide to creating an account and downloading the Unibet Poker software. It is recommended that you jump straight to stage 3 and then create your account and your poker alias while the download poker file is running. In this way you will save yourself a little time and be sure that your computer has the minimum system requirements for the download poker software.

Unibet Poker Welcome Bonuses

While the download poker file completes its job, register your account and create your alias. Thereafter you will be ready to deposit into your Unibet poker account and select your Unibet First Deposit Bonus. The amount of the deposit does not affect which bonus you are entitled to pick from and you can choose any one of the following three:-

  1. Unibet Starter Bonus – €100.00 (Euros – not Disney money) released in units of €10.00 per 400 VIP points earned by contributing to the rake at cash games and for the fees paid to enter tournaments
  2. Unibet Regular Bonus – €300.00 released in units of €30.00 per 500 VIP points earned
  3. Unibet Pro Bonus – €500.00 released in units of €50.00 per 600 VIP points earned

VIP points are awarded at a rate of 10 per $1.00 raked or paid in tournament entry fees, and in addition to helping you clear your bonus, they also determine what VIP Status you achieve, which in turn establish your rate of rakeback.

As well as the Unibet First Deposit Bonuses, players will receive free tournament tickets for entry into three $500.00 freerolls and three $1.00 tournaments with $500.00 added prize money. This tournament entry bonus is irrespective of whichever Unibet First Deposit Bonus is chosen.
