Nevada-licensed online gaming operator Ultimate Gaming has announced the first software upgrades to its Ultimate Poker offering, rolling out a series of enhancements to the product’s tables and lobby, as well as a new VIP rewards programme.

The operator has made a number of changes to the in-game features, including resizable tables, resized avatars and player pedestals, as well as a new timer, larger cards and preset bet buttons.

The game lobby has been improved with a number of new animations, while late registration and new entry options have been added for online tournaments.

Ultimate Poker has also added a new VIP programme, Colour UP, which awards players points for each tournament or cash game played, and points can be redeemed for in-game bonuses or merchandise at the newly-opened shop.

The company’s chief marketing officer Joe Versaci said the upgrades were “just the first step”, explaining that the company was “dedicated to listening to [its] customers” and “working hard to continually enhance and enrich the product by introducing new features and upgrades.”

The upgrade comes after the operator became the first to complete a field trial of its product in July, securing full approval to operate in Nevada.
