Previous release notes can be found here.

Release date: 21st June
Next release: 17th August - No July release due to summer break

Huge release upcoming!

It's been somewhat quite since the September release where we launched the redesigned client, and this is partly due to all the work that's gone into the features that'll be released this month.

We're stoked about going live with the new loyalty system the 1st of July, which not only involves a new way of rewarding players with monetary prizes, it also rewards you with access to various data and insight through our Game Lab. I have described the new loyalty system in the below post and @Andy-Unibet will be publishing a series of articles on here, which go into more detail with everything, including the school section, which is aimed at helping especially the worse players become better.

In addition to loyalty and Game Lab, we've also got a few promotions, improvements and bug fixes.

As it's a really significant release, we'd love to hear your feedback, and bug reports are very appreciated!

 

Promotions:

Still running/upcoming from previous release(s):

  • Penalty Hero 1st June – 12th July
  • Team Collector 11th June – 11th July
  • Euro matchday freerolls

  • Game Lab and New loyalty 1st July ->

  • 2 New MTT lobby filters and re-arrange of the order

    • We added two new MTT lobby filter types, Add-on and Tickets.

  • Added sorting in Hand History for ‘Pot’ and ‘Winnings’ columns:

    • Players can now sort these two columns, in descending and ascending order

    • First click shows biggest Pot/Winnings, second click smallest

    • Default is Time descending

    • When you leave the page, but do not logout, sort column and order stays the same as you had it last time in the view.

    • Sort column and order reset to default (Time desc) when you change the Date.

  • Updated banner fonts.  We have changed the banner fonts to match the website design.

Bug fixes

  • Improvements to Timebank: we have changed how the timebank is calculated to hopefully reduce the number of times players are involuntarily folded when timebank kicks in. As the timebank activation and calculation is dependent on the communication between client and server we can experience issues in rare cases if the load between these is extremely high but hopefully this change will remedy most of the timebank cases. 
  • Clicking the Home button in a Relax slot game in CiP used to close the whole poker client, fixed now so it only closes the actual CiP game.

 

Compliance

  • Removed Cash games and SNG for German market as of 1st of July
  • Removed the Panic button from tables for German market, the lobby button stays intact

 

Downtime 

We are updating Unibet Poker server side on Monday 21/06/2021 05:00-06:00 UTC.

Games will be paused during update.

New SNG tournament creation disabled 1 hour before update.

Update may be finished earlier.

I really like the idea you guys implemented with protecting the recreational players, especially the thingy implemented in client. Good for the ecosystem. I always tought of Unibet very highly, but with the changes in the last year its in my opinion the best in the market :)

It will be interesting how the exclusion of German players will affect the already small pool of cash games players. Do we know how many Ge4rman players are playing now as percent?

It's a small share of the cash game pool. Ecology wise it's not terrible either. But I get your concern, as games are quite fragile with current liquidity 🙂

Does this mean that disconnecting thingy is fixed too finally? Really doing my tits in, focus should be 100% to get rid off that. Can't even consider spending my money on tourneys to get my bloodpressure boiling over that.

To bet or not to bet, that is the question.

No, but this is only ever really an issue in freerolls. Rarely seen in real-money tournaments, and it can always be reported here (unless it's a freeroll)

Wow, it is possible to win tourny after all, even if you not ambassador. Or maybe none of them was playing at the time so rng just had to give it away to someone 🤐

Can't really say how often it happens cause it is main reason i don't want to play so i am kind of in a loop here but for example tourny above must be last i played and it happened there which again made me wan't to play less. Thought about mentioning it back then but thought what is the point if i don't play much until it fixed and probly you ain't going to do anything about it unless others report him/them too or he/them does it constantly.

Not sure how many times it happened there or how long (feel free to check out) but for me it only takes once to question will it be even bigger issue on next one if i would choosre to play.

In faster pace tournies it also have affect on play when hand can go on minutes so i don't consider it minor thing. Long story short, fix it and lets get rid off it 😄

I haven't played much tourneys either and this is a huge reason. At least half of the real money tourneys has a "connection issue" staller on the bubble. And they are so fking obvious when doing that. I've posted here some and have many more screenshots of them on my computer. I just haven't seen any reason to post all of them here when I get no reaction of the mods. 

 

It's not a huge issue tho. But it's an issue which any other site doesn't have so I'll rather play on those sites then there where the issue is too small to even talk about.

@PionrjMaybe it is a huge issue, I mean if it gets to you as a REG, imagine what it does to a REC. It's basically like you don't really remember why you don't like a person years down the road but you remember how he/she made you feel. That emotion sticks with you for a longer time than memory. Sadly like in the real world, most individuals will try and take every edge regardless of the consequences. So it's up to the REGs to report and for Unibet to take action.

I can imagine that it gets quite boring taking screenshots or names and then come posting them here when all you want to is play poker.

Hopefully it gets fixed sooner or later, i can wait, easy way to save money 😄

Sounds like it has become more of an issue then. Makes sense if the guys used to just stall every hand with the regular timebank, and when that became impossible, a minority of the previous stallers would change to this strategy. I’ll check with Relax Monday what the status is.

@Stubbe-Unibet

Not sure how many others have this problem, but at least for me the hand replayer button is so small and dim that I simply can't see it at all, especially on a bright day. 

Any chance of making it stand out a bit more? I also think that it's current location is a pretty tight squeeze anyhow between the top left avatar and the title bar. Would be great, and also quite logical, to have a proper button for it located just under the tournament lobby button. There would be plenty of room for it there.
