Over the past few weeks, several top online poker operators have been busy announcing new series and online events. Some options are brand-new while others are just a return of regular tournaments that players have come to love. At Unibet Poker, the Online Series is back, the second running of the series this year. The Unibet Online Series XII will offer a total of 102 events with a total of €650,000 in guaranteed prize money up for grabs.
A Smaller Series
This go round, the Unibet Online Series will be smaller. The number of events is less than normal, and the time frame of the series is shorter. Instead of the normal month-long series, the online poker room will be offering action for two weeks.
According to information from Pokerfuse PRO, the online poker operator decided to make the series shorter this time due to player feedback. Unibet Global Ambassador David Lappin spoke with Unibet and said that feedback showed that players wanted a shorter competition time frame.
This is the 12th running of the series and it will last for a total of 15 days. There are 102 events and there are four buy-in levels, making it easy for players of all bankrolls to take part. The levels start on the low end at Nano and go to the High Roller section.
The schedule begins with Event #1, a €35,000 Rebuy High event. This tournament has a buy-in of €100. On the mid end, the same event has a buy-in of €50 and features a €20,000 prize pool. There is also the low option which has a small €5 buy-in and a €3,000 prize pool.
The largest event on the schedule appears to the Event #95, the Unibet Open Online High. This event will run for two days and features a €200,000 prize pool. The buy-in is €1,100. There is also a €50,000 option that offers rebuys and has a €100 buy-in.
Like with many competitions, Unibet has decided to provide a leaderboard competition. Players will not be competing in one leaderboard, as there are five on offer. There is an Overall, a High, Mid, Low, and Nano option.
With the Overall leaderboard, points are accrued based events played and the finishing spot in the tournament. A total of €10,000 in cash is up for grabs with this leaderboard. The High board is for the High events. The top 25 will win a prize on this board and there is €4,500 up for grabs.
The Mid board pays an additional €3,500 in prizes with the top 40 players on the board earning extra cash. The Low board pays the top 50 players with a piece of a €2,000 prize pool. The Nano is the lowest board, and it has a €1,000 prize pool.
The series kicks off soon and players will have plenty of opportunity to earn a seat via satellites and qualifiers. Head over to Unibet now and type in UOS in the client to find all the latest information regarding the series.
