Unibet Poker tournament leads to company offering refunds

2017-07-06 12:16:53

Unibet poker is not commonly known for their large tournaments with large guarantees. Unibet poker traditionally focuses their efforts on recreational poker players.

Not all plain sailing

However, there was a bit of a hitch at Unibet poker and a planned break failed to occur which prevented players in the €50,000 guaranteed event from purchasing an add-on, otherwise, the prize pool could reach a whopping €80,000 or more. Unibet quickly realised what had occurred and Unibet Poker announced that they would refund the initial buy-in of €90+€10 to every single player who was still in the tournament at the point of the add-on break who did not navigate their way through to the money places.


A statement from Unibet poker read: “We wanted to come in to let you know that we’ll be compensating players affected by this tomorrow. There should have been an add-on break which didn’t come in the €50K GTD ‘Half Billion’ (we’re looking into the reasons why now) and we’ll refund the initial buy in (€90+€10) to every player who was still in at the point of the add-on break who did not finish in the money.” This appears to be a worthwhile gesture from Unibet poker and the online poker players who were affected by the bug will be happy that Unibet poker made amends for the bug.
