UltimateBet recently became the exclusive sponsor to the Bellator Fighting Championships. Bellator is the televised mixed martial arts show that airs nationally and to celebrate their new sponsorship, UB is offering special VIP High Roller packages to their players.
UB is going to host several free roll tournaments beginning on March 25th for players to win the special packages. A weekly Bellator free roll will take place from March 25th to June 24th on Thursdays. The winner of each free roll No Limit Hold’em tournament will get to go to a Bellator event and sit cage-side during the 2010 season.
The VIP Bellator prize package from Ultimate Bet will consist of two cage side seats, pre/post event photos in the cage, official UB and Bellator swap as well as $300 in cash to pay for travel expenses. The new online contest by UB for Bellator is celebrating the grassroots following of the MMA Sports entertainment across the United States. The free rolls have been designed to target specific areas that coincide with the upcoming Bellator events.
For example the first free roll that UB will be hosting will take place at 20:00 ET and it will be exclusive to players in Florida. The winner of the free roll will be able to attend the upcoming Bellator event which will take place at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida on April 8th.
One week later, UB players from Indiana and Illinois will be able to compete in the April 1st Bellator Free roll. This tournament will take place at 21:00 ET and will give the winning player a sat to the Bellator Event which will take place at the Chicago Theatre in Illinois on April 15th.
The following Thursday will see players from Connecticut, New York State and Massachusetts competing for a prize package. The tournament will take place on April 8th at 20:00 ET and the winner will earn a seat to the April 22nd Bellator event which will take place in Connecticut at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville.
Kansas and Missouri players will be next in line to compete as the next Thursday, April 15th will host the next free roll at 21:00 ET. The VIP High Roller package will be given to the winner who will get to sit cage side on April 29th at the Bellator event which will take place at Kansas City Poker and Light District.
