Previous release notes can be found here.

Release date: 16th November
Next release: 18th January

The two biggest changes in this release you’ll likely notice as soon as you open a table. The table design has gotten an overhaul - not the backgrounds but the table elements - and you can now communicate with other players at the table.

Visually it might look quite similar at first glance, depending on the game type you play, but there’s a fairly long list of changes. I’ll try and summarize the main ones below, looking at 9 handed MTT tables on desktop, as these are the most crowded. The short version: we’ve tried to keep the tables clean and move elements off the table felt.

Lastly, there's also a bunch of promotions included in the release - also some new ones - as the next release is in January.

New features/Improvements

  • Improved table UI 
    • Functionality:
      • Switch between BB and chips can now be done with a single click/tap of your own stack (when play in BB is enabled)
    • Visual changes:
      • Villain avatar size reduced
      • Hero avatar size reduced significantly
      • Card size (card back) increased to make it more obvious which players are still in the hand
      • Action label moved “outside” of the player box and now shows on top of the box when relevant
      • Cards (back) moved to be aligned with player box and no longer covers the avatars
      • Player boxes moved further away from table felt to make table less crowded and avoid elements overlapping
        • Text alignment of villain alias and stack size changed to move text away from table felt
      • Infobox (tournament stats in lower left corner) improved in various ways:
        • 9 handed no longer vertical format
        • Space between figure and “BB” text removed, to avoid small font size when with 4-5 digit figures
        • Next level timer font size separate from blinds, to avoid text size scaling down with blind text
      • Bounty positions changed so that bounty always shown in same position (relative to other player elements)
      • Some font visibility increased (hero hand strength, previous action box)
      • In spectator mode, hero position at the table now looks "normal"
      • Moved the replayer controls to limit miss clicks when playing with table priority

  • Table chatter tool in the shape of emojis and animated characters. If you’ve ever played poker on another platform and paid attention to the table chat, you’ll surely have seen messages such as“F*** you, you little  **** ****** *****” and “Die you lucky ******* ******”. Table chat doesn’t exactly bring out the best in people, when emotions are flying high as villain hits a one-outer. Due to this, we never considered adding text chat to the client (at least not as a feature available on all tables), but we wanted to make it possible to communicate and interact at the table in a fun and different manner.

    After discussing a few different options, we decided to go with a combination of animated emojis and characters. Below some basic details about the feature:
    • When you sit down at a new table, you get a credit of 5 chatter uses, which you can use at any time
    • When you use an emoji or character at the table, a countdown of 40 seconds will commence and after the 40 seconds you get another credit added to your balance (you can have a maximum of 5)
    • Your credit will always be visible when clicking the chatter icon (5/5, 2/5 etc.). When you’ve used all 5, a countdown in seconds will appear
    • You can mute a specific table
    • You can disable the feature completely in settings

At this point every NEW background looks fresh/amazing. At least those one colour ones are not tagged new like for last 6months 🤪. And what with those backgrounds that are not working?? Remember time when you could have make your own backgrounds 🥲

Anyway, im still not fond of hit x10 hexa mission [im pretty sure we will find it in Xmas ones] , rather have play 20hexas , at least here you can see the end of the tunnel, unlike this 10x multiplier that some people hit with ease and some not 🤧

You should still be able to overwrite the table background files, if you want to use your own designs 🙂

Yeap Nordics Cup looks dope and calm, just perfect for those who tend to tilt 😄
I don't think this table design will be available for players to choose. It wil be only in mtt? Is that right???
 

Indeed. You can easly overwritte table background or avatar files for some reason 🙂

As much i love avatars(Big shout-out for man who create those graphics) these chat animations don't appeal to me... maybe because I use stickers on signal a lot!

If you need, I can get these animations 😃

I am not sure if this is the best place for this post, but here it comes:

I play UB Poker almost exclusively using my iPad Safari browser. The current view looks like this:

httpsfi.unibet.compokerpoker-browser-new.pdf

I also occasionally play in Pokerihuone using the dedicated app available via App Store. The app looks like this:

A2C94A5B-B937-4F2C-9BB5-66E17AA109C0.thumb.png.549ce4e9b4c42ad269b791a80f1a9341.png

As one can see, playing in the Safari browser (UB) doesn’t show the symbols nor the full Avatar below the screen; this is also case when actual playing action is ongoing, for example, Check and Raise buttons which show only partially. The problem is not new to this newest build but somewhat exaggerated compared to earlier versions.

I wonder if anyone else is experiencing similar “problems”? And/or is there some quick fix in my part that I can do to remedy this (using iPad Safari browser)?

Thanks guys!

Thanks @Stubbe-Unibet
 

As things currently stand the playing action (with iPad using Safari browser, latest iOS 15.1) is somewhat difficult since the buttons used for playing are barely visible and clickable: for me, at least, only the colors of the buttons - that is the upper edges of the playing buttons - are visible and not even the texts (”check”, “raise” etc.) are shown. 
 

But I’m confident the magnificent UB Poker Team is able to solve this! If I can be of any further assistance, please let me know.

As a loyal customer for 2 and half years, playing almost exclusively on Unibet, the new table design for 6max cash games, its unbelievable a bad experience trying to figure it who is what position. Feels like a bad joke. The player to your right is too cloose this doesnt feel like "a clean layout" or whatever you tried to make. Big disapointment imo.

Appreciate the feedback 🙂

Can you elaborate a bit on how you're struggling telling who's in what position?

You're right that there's less space between hero and players on either side, albeit it's very little; these players covered a bit too much of the table felt before. Limited how much they can be moved to the side (to avoid clashing with other elements), but they could potentially be moved up a bit. 
Let's see what everyone else thinks 🙂 

Below two pictures to show the space (the two bars are the same width).

It feels weird because the top player cards are on his left side, and mine are on the right side, so it creates these weird ilussion for the eye. If the cards would be moved to the left there wouldnt be a problem imo, and the avatars are not symetrical

Yes, 6 handed tables are a bit of a challenge in this regard, when items are aligned left or right in the box (was also like that with the old design, in terms of cards and avatar, but not text). Center align will be a bit odd and difficult, at least if we're talking avatar and cards. The text could potentially be center aligned and card and avatar positions swapped around.

Let me know how you feel about the design this evening or in a day or two. Most changes seem bad at first 🙂

hi all!

 

i really like the emotes though i got no clue what some of them  should mean 🙂

on the other hand unfortunately i can not use them in this form because i confuse the chat bubble with the button on the table!! so i disabled it. i hope u will find a better place for it since there is a lot of empty space on the bottom of the tables.

⚠️⚠️I had several blocked products on unibet. including sports and bingo. These products are now all showing as available⚠️⚠️

there's a chance i have made mistake and they have expired but i think that is very unlikely, i think these products were blocked until next year. Please look into ASAP

I'm going with @Tomi22 and say that this update is terrible, looked decent enough before and now it's like someone drunk made a new table layout for no apparent reason, not for 6max cash tables anyway.

First of all the alignment as mentioned, what is that all about, look at the empty space left of my own nickname, very bizarre. Every player having their nick in the middle like before is way more slick than this.

Then the top up button is strange as covers half the area of my nickname 'box' more or less and the right hand side covers the BB/actual money value toggle which is bit annoying and also weird. Also preferred the old way of topping up where you can just click the whole box or on your name rather than a smaller slightly undefined area now.

Then the chat bubble icon looks almost like the Button and might be confusing as well, maybe not the ideal place for a chat icon dunno. Also Button is now on the left and right next to the chips. On mobile the chat icon sits above our nickname box which makes it even more look like a dealer Button. Shouldn't that be sitting within the nickname box maybe? Would make more sense and they left some space for it too 🤣 EDIT, oh yeh I forgot there are avatars lol, still could be a way of merging both the avatar and the chat bubble 😛

Also weird is how the nickname box expands to add the action info, raise/fold etc and then goes back to previous size after, daft.

881.png.ae20b4c3bfc2eacf3f526eca23675504.png Normal size

882.png.5016a475c850f0164a56caa012d51720.png  Expanded size

883.png.75cb17fe1052d5247eee59631e1daaa8.png Old style, pretty neat imo.


Apart from the chat icon, I'm not sure what the reason is for all these changes tbh.

So yeh, my verdict:  verdict.png.24721fb9db43d12fb52ef98e8d2d7c67.png 😂
