In just 72 hours, Ultimate Poker registered thousands of new players from every state in the Union and from up to 20 other countries. By last Thursday, around 10pm server time and with about 50 poker tables in full action, Ultimate Poker had dealt its 100,000th hand. "I would say we were the largest poker room in the state at that hour,” Tobin Prior (Ultimate Gaming CEO) said on Friday.
The launch has met and gone beyond performance expectations. It is after all the US' first legal and regulated online poker room. CEO Breitling was reluctant to share official numbers with the media, but has done so with Nevada Gaming regulators.
