The owners of UFC ( Ultimate Fighting Championship ) and Station Casinos (US land based gambling group) just announced the launch of a real money online poker website by the end of this week.
During the UFC 148 in Las Vegas, they will promote the new online poker site to the world. Players in the US only can play the free version of the online poker game while players living in countries allowing online gambling can play Fertitta`s online poker for real money.
Late this year, poker players residing in Nevada should be able to play with real money where license can be applied. The online poker will use software by CyberArts and will be operated by Fertitta Interactive, a division of Fertitta Entertainment.
Ultimate Gaming should be a huge success in the same way of UFC. It`s expected to acquire 1 billion players in 148 countries through promotional advertisements in all UFC events.
The debut of Ultimate Gaming will be this Friday (June 22) on Facebook and a huge promotional action is expected during the UFC 148 in Las Vegas.
The executives at Fertitta Interactive are viewing this as a global opportunity to enter the online gambling world. The names behind the UFC ( Ultimate Fighting Championship ) and Station Casinos (US land based gambling group) are Frank Fertitta and Lorenzo Fertitta.
