Ultimate Gaming, operator of Ultimate Poker (www.UltimatePoker.com), and El Cortez Hotel & Casino, the longest continuously operating hotel-casino in Las Vegas, have entered into a joint marketing partnership that makes Ultimate Poker the online poker room for the iconic property.
El Cortez Hotel & Casino, the only casino in Las Vegas’ burgeoning Fremont East Entertainment District, has begun marketing UltimatePoker.com to its extensive database of customers. Additionally, players are now able to deposit and cash out at the casino cage after they have created an account online.
“We’re excited to join in this new venture and bring even more gaming options to guests of the property,” Alexandra Epstein, executive vice president of the El Cortez Hotel & Casino, said. “By combining the online accessibility of Ultimate Poker with the classic Vegas feel of the El Cortez we’re giving new and existing players a different way to experience the game of poker.”
Ultimate Poker recently launched a similar agreement with Peppermill Resort Spa Casino and its four additional Nevada properties. These partnerships, combined with Ultimate Poker being the online poker product of Station Casinos, give players the opportunity to deposit and cash out at over 20 convenient locations around the state, including El Cortez Hotel & Casino, Station Casinos and Peppermill Resorts.
Ultimate Poker offers an exhilarating and secure online poker experience to anyone age 21 and over located in the state of Nevada. Players in Nevada can play now at UltimatePoker.com, while any player in the world can sign up and deposit in advance of visiting Nevada.
