Unibet Launches UOS9 with $1 Million Guaranteed; New Software in the Works

Poker players have yet another online series to look forward to this week. The Unibet Online Series 9 kicks off Sept. 18 and runs through Oct. 11 with 133 events and an overall guarantee of €1 million.

The site caters to those who may not be looking for mega buy-in events and prefer some lower-stakes cash games and tournaments. Those looking to go a bit bigger, however, will also find some action.

The UOS9 is an example of that with Nano, Low, Mid, and High buy-in levels. That ranges from as small as €0.50 all the way up to €300.

Those looking for some lower buy-in options and plenty of fun may want to jump in the UOS9 action.

“We foster for our recreational players by running a quite large part of our tournaments in the lower buy-in range,” Kindred Group (Unibet’s corporate owner) poker tournament manager Leo Wagenius tells USPoker. “But of course we’re also running some weekly tournaments in the higher buy-in range, such as €50 to €200.”

Some highlights of the Unibet OS9 schedule

The UOS9 offers plenty of tournaments for players who prefer some fun with a bargain buy-in. Unibet goes out of its way to live up to its motto “By players, for players.”

When it comes to micro stakes action that means no rake. Unibet takes no fee for any tournaments with a buy-in of €1 or less.

Players in the UOS9 will find mostly No Limit Hold’em with a few Omaha events mixed in. There are also several bounty tournaments on the schedule, adding some extra excitement.

Key bullet points include three two-day main events set for Oct. 2 with the €300 Main Event guaranteeing €30,000. The €0.50 Nano version guarantees €400 and the €10 Low version guarantees €4,000.

Unibet is also including some of its traditional brands into the series: the UK Tour and the Unibet Open. The €1,100 Unibet Open Online, a two-day event with €250,000 guaranteed, should attract a nice field.

A few other events that should draw plenty of interest include:

  • €1 Nano NLHE Rebuy Two-Day – €500 guaranteed (Sept. 20)
  • €50 Mid NLHE Rebuy Two-Day – €25,000 guaranteed (Sept. 27)
  • €250 High NLHE UK Tour Online Two-Day – €25,000 guaranteed (Sept. 27)
  • €100 Rebuy High NLHE Two-Day – €50,000 guaranteed (Oct. 4)
  • €50 Rebuy Mid NLHE Two-Day – €25,000 guaranteed (Oct. 4)
  • €100 High Unibet Open Online Two-Day – €25,000 guaranteed (Oct. 11)
  • €1,100 High Unibet Open Online Two-Day – €250,000 guaranteed (Oct. 11)

Here’s a look at the complete schedule.

Proudly rec player friendly at Unibet

Catering to recreational and part-time players is a major part of the mindset at Unibet. Along with lower buy-ins and rake-free micro events, the site also has some other ways it caters to rec players.

Poker tracking software is banned and players can change their usernames up to three times a day. These present some obstacles for sharks looking to feast on less-experienced players.

Wagenius says communicating with players remains a big goal as well at Unibet.

“What really stands out is our close and straightforward communication with our customers,” he says. “We have a Unibet community where we listen to customer suggestions on a daily basis.”

The site also offers players the ability to create on-demand home game tournaments. All these events run rake free – a nice benefit to play with friends while social distancing during a pandemic.

“It’s really appreciated by customers, to be able to have small tournaments with friends and not pay for it,” Wagenius says.

“The entire poker team tries to make customers feel that they can actually impact where we take the product.”

Players have another nice event to look forward to during UOS9. The site plans to launch a complete software client facelift on Sept. 22. No word on the changes yet, but with its player-friendly approach, Unibet hopes the new software will be even more user friendly.
