One of the top providers of exciting live poker events and poker tournaments Unibet has announced a couple of days ago that it will be moving all 2020 land-based poker tournaments fully online. For this year, the poker operator has planned loads of live poker events which will be played online including three Unibet Online events which will allow interested players to participate from any part of the globe from the coziness of their home.
The news about Unibet moving all of its live poker events scheduled for this year does not come as a surprise considering that the coronavirus pandemic and the ongoing related crisis has caused the postponements and cancellations of all major events including sports events, cultural as well as religious and other. Back to the subject, the iconic Unibet Open Tallinn event has been merged with the Unibet Online Series. For the following months of this year, Unibet does not plan on scheduling any more live poker events due to the coronavirus crisis.
The Fall and The Winter Unibet Open Taking Place Online
This means that its Fall and Winter Unibet Open events will also take place as online events with The Fall Unibet Open starting in September and The Winter Unibet Open taking place in December. When it comes to the exact dates of these events, they are yet to be released. Commenting on the news, Head of Events for the poker operator Nataly Sopacuaperu said that the decision to move all live poker events online was not taken lightly.
She said that Unibet as a whole understands the impact that this decision has on the company’s partners as well as on the brick and mortar venues which were supposed to host those over two thousand events scheduled for this year. However, Unibet has to consider the well-being and health of its players, customers, employees, and everyone else involved in any way and make it the biggest priority to stay safe and protected considering the latest travel restrictions as well as related difficulties of planning such trips during these times of uncertainty.
According to the operator’s latest official press releases, Unibet has already made plans which will help them bring the fun and excitement found at brick and mortar gaming venues and live poker events to the world of online poker events. The operator is also asking its players and customers to submit their own ideas using the Unibet community forum. Via this forum, everyone interested can discuss their ideas with senior members of the forum.
