Polish a Turd, It's Still a Turd

To take a line from Jeff Dunham's puppet Peanut, "Polish a turd, it's still a turd." has officially completed their site redesign and will know be known as simply UB. This change has made complete UB's switch over to the Cereus network.

So, I guess now that it's UB instead of UltimateBet, we are all supposed to forget about the cheating scandal that has went on and everything is up and on the level right? Polish a turd, it's still a turd.

Ok, so I am being a bit hard on them. But really folks, are we supposed to be so shallow as to think "Oh, it's UB now. They have nothing to do with UltimateBet." At least that is what they hope you will think.

Do I think that UB is going to try and cheat people at the tables again? I hope not. Does the new site design mean I am going to increase my $280 balance on the site to play more on their site? Hell no.

One change of note is that there is a casino feature on the software, complete with slots, table games, and video poker. Good job UB, let's legally sucker people out their money with games to cause leaks into people's bankroll.

I am not that impressed with the new shell. I think it actually looks worse than the old one. Game play so far is about the same.

Time will tell whether the new "UB" will bring people back. Personally, I am not impressed. Run a clean operation and over time, you will earn back trust. In the meantime, take your lumps and maybe use some Lysol.
