Ultimate Poker - Playing There
I read this article in the Review Journal, our Las Vegas newspaper, about Ultimate Poker launching today, so I decided to go check it out. After all, it's been 2 years since I last played online. Went to the site, did a little reading, then clicked the Download button. After a few seconds, I got this message:
"The signature of UltimatePokerSetup.msi is corrupt or invalid"
Seems my anti-virus software doesn't like it too much. I was given no option to override it or continue in any way. I tried a dozen times to download, both trying run and save. No dice.
So I sent an email to them. And I got a robo-generated reply about how busy they were seeing as how it's their first day.
Really? At 12 midnight, in a state with only 2.7 million residents, the vast majority of whom couldn't care less about poker, and of the remainder, most of those don't care about online poker? Really?
This is not a very good start. In fact, it's pathetic. The software won't download to my machine, and they can't reply to my email.
I've already read some complaints about the UP software, that it can't be resized, won't run on the Macs, the windows are too small. But I'm willing to check it out anyway, except their support leaves MUCH to be desired. Whatever. Looks like I'm gonna be waiting a bit longer to play online poker again.
