SunPoker.com releases new Flash, No Download, Mac/PC Poker Room

It is now much easier for online poker players to connect to the SunPoker.com tables from their computers, with the new “Flash-No Download” version of the popular poker room. This “instant play” version allows players to start playing immediately without the need to download any software onto their computer first. More importantly, Sunpoker.com is now easily played using an Apple Mac.
“We realized that in order for us to serve our players around the world, we needed to give them as many options as possible to enjoy our poker tables”, said Greg Harrison, Poker Room Manager at SunPoker.com. “The no-download version lets players play immediately regardless of their location. We are thrilled that players owning Mac computers, can now easily play at our tables.”
One of the major hesitancies for poker players is having to download poker room software or using a PC simulator to play online with a Macintosh. This is not the case anymore with SunPoker.com. Players simply enter their login details and can start playing right away. This means users are able to play while away from their normal computer; in an Internet café or even a friend’s computer.
Players will not loose graphic quality with the new Flash version. The graphical richness remains identical with the ability to resize the poker table to your preferred size without sacrificing quality.
With $4 Million in guaranteed tournaments each month and new player bonuses of $500 and £250 respectively, these types of developments continue to make SunPoker.com one of the world’s leading online poker brands.

Free Seats to Poker’s Biggest Main Event

They say you can’t put a price on the World Series of Poker* experience. One online poker site is taking that sentiment a little too literally by handing out a large number of Main Event seats for free. UltimateBet.com today announced a new promotion that solidifies the poker site as the best place to win a free seat in the series.
“This is an historic promotion for fans of the world’s greatest game,” stated UltimateBet spokesperson George MacLean. “We’re handing out loads of Main Event seats and online poker fans can win one just by doing what they love – playing poker.”
Annie Duke, UltimateBet’s new Cardroom Consultant, created the Ultimate Main Event Giveaway promotion so that more online poker players are able to experience Texas Hold’em on the world’s biggest stage alongside poker’s best pros.
To qualify for the promotion,UltimateBet players must simply play in any real-money poker Sit ‘n Go, ring game or multi-table tournament at UltimateBet.com between April 24th and May 23rd and climb their way up the Main Event Giveaway leader board.
At the end of the qualifying period, the player who has earned the most RAI$E status points will automatically secure a $12,000 Main Event prize package featuring the $10,000 buy-in and $2,000 for travel accommodations.
But that’s just the start of UltimateBet’s Main Event generosity. Players ranking 2nd through 70th on the leader board will play in an exclusive freeroll that features a prize pool of seven additional $12,000 Main Event packages.
In an effort to send as many players as possible to Las Vegas for the world’s most prestigious poker tournament, UltimateBet is opening the floodgates to even more Main Event seats through a series of freerolls. On Saturday May 24th, the online poker site is holding a 25-seat Guaranteed Tournament where at least 25 Main Event prize packages will be won. Players ranking 71st through 225th on the leader board will win their spot in the $500+30 tournament. Those ranking 226th through 3427th will be divided into five separate freerolls where hundreds of additional opportunities to win a spot in the 25-seat Guaranteed Tournament are on the line.

The difficulty of good, fresh content

Many, if not most, affiliate marketers make money by supplying good, fresh content. In order to succeed, content must be helpful, relevant, current, and must entice further action. In addition, it must add value.Despite being top-notch affiliate marketers, content is not our strong suit. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you may know this already. 😉 I have been thinking about why this is the case. After all, we know the online poker industry as well as anyone. We’re all highly intelligent. We can add plenty of value. Some of us are even pretty decent writers.But we are not, by nature, teachers. We expect a user to “get it.” This is the wrong approach when using content in affiliate marketing. A good content affiliate marketer teaches a user whatever she needs to know about the product she is going to buy or engage in. This is why affiliate monetization of a poker coaching site or strategy forum is often the perfect fit.Monetizing existing sites is exactly what Poker Affiliate Solutions does. We provide tools for the good “teachers” to make more money from their “teaching” talents.We have made a few hires recently to improve our content and our teaching on both Poker Affiliate Solutions and on our Rakeback from Raketracker retail property. The only difficulty of this decision was knowing that once we make the plunge, we need to keep our content fresh. And that is the difficulty of content for so many affiliate marketers. If this is not you, and your passion is selling through teaching and churning out great article after great article, our hats are off to you. And we’d love to help you make more money from your talents.

Epassporte Leaves Poker Processing

It has been reported and confirmed that Epassporte has left the online poker processing business. Of course this isn’t good news for an already beat up industry but it isn’t the end of the world. While this will make it harder, at least for the time being, to move money around it is certainly far from impossible to get money to and from poker rooms.
Most sites accept some form of cash transfer and many credit cards still work. Also many rooms have in house echeck processors. There are ewallets still available too like eWalletXpress. To cashout rooms will still mail checks and there are still many echeck services available too. It certainly isn’t time to panic. While it may not be as convenient to move money around as it used to be it is still possible and easy to transfer money to play online poker.
