Ultimate Bet Poker Rebrands as UB.com

Ultimate Bet PokerUltimate Bet Poker is a poker website frequented by hundreds of thousands of poker players each month. The company just announced a rebranding effort, and the website will now be known as UB Poker. Site users had long referred to the company as “UB,” so it made sense to rebrand.

Along with the newly minted brand, the company has also begun using its recently acquired domain name, UB.com. Up until the end of July, the domain name was owned by a private domain investment company.

Users can still log in via UltimateBet.com, which surprisingly (surprising to me) doesn’t forward to the new url, although the new logo reflects the acquisition and rebranding effort. When you search Google and Yahoo for “Ultimate Bet,” the domain name that has been in use for years is the number one result rather than UB.com.

The acquisition price for UB.com was not made public by the company, but knowing the domain owner, it was not cheap!

Update: An unconfirmed rumor has it the name sold for around half a million dollars.

  1. Smart buy. Not unlike Snapnames, UB had a scandal involving one of the founders defrauding players. Looks like it didn’t affect business too badly.

  2. @Tom, Ultimate Bet/UB is the same company that owns Absolute Poker. I do remember that scandal which I also blogged about.

    Wondering if they will spring for AP.com as well. if so I’m sure they will not want to see the price paid for UB.com to be highly publicized
