Ultimate Poker, Station Casinos‘ online poker room, launches real money online poker today at UltimatePoker.com, making history as the first company in the United States to offer legal online poker In Nevada. Here’s a blurb from the press release.

Ultimate Poker is a licensed online poker room in the state of Nevada, leading the way through extraordinary service, best-in-class rewards, and a true-to-its-roots poker experience. Created by online poker specialists and backed by Las Vegas gaming leaders, Ultimate Poker brings fun back to the online felt by merging entertainment, competition, and the gaming lifestyle. Ultimate Poker is the exclusive online gaming partner of the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®), the fastest growing sports organization in the world, and is the online poker product of Station Casinos, the preferred gaming destination for Las Vegas locals.    

I haven’t played poker (online or offline) in a few years so I’m not very up on actual play but Quad Jacks has details here and here about the launch of Ultimate Poker.

If you have a mac (like me) you can’t just download, load your account and play at Ultimate Poker you’ll have to invest a few bucks to buy Windows 7 to play.

  • Download and install VMware such as VMFusion onto your Mac.*
  • Purchase and install Windows 7 onto your Mac.*
  • Download the ULTIMATE POKER client and install on the
    Windows portion of your Mac.

If you’re a mac user and don’t want to buy windows you’re stuck playing with offshore sites. This isn’t much of a surprise as sports betting was limited to PC’s when it first launched. Mac products will probably follow in a few months.

Ultimate Poker is the first of a handful of legal online poker sites to launch in Nevada. This is just the beginning of the new online poker revolution. Or something like that. Seriously, along with mobile sports betting, this is leading the way for online and mobile gaming to being much larger.
