I'm with Alien, there are a lot of benefits to the site, not the least of which is the endless bonus for those micro grinders out there. I think its OK for lo stakes, don't trust the high (there or anywhere, to be fair).
Yes there could be bots around, but they are everywhere. Bots don't scare me; crooked operators (employees or colluders) do. But again, I think they exist everywhere -- we are just unearthing a few at a time.
Yes a scandal at Ultimatebet similar to Absolute Poker, and a new multi-user scandal on another server (see 2+2 postings on this, forget the name)...
I plan to ride it out at Ultimatebet for now...
Also, re the bonus, I do about $5 every few hours played at .25-.50, and they refund in small increments (I hate it when you get 30-60 days to claim a whole amount or nothing, Stars-type bonuses). Their whole new Points theme is indecipherable, but most bonus schemes are to me -- I like to see how fast money clinks into my account as I play.
Another thing: You can get rakeback there if you are already a member; can't do that at Tilt.
I like rakethrake, can PM me if interested.
