UltimateBeat: The UltimateBet Scandal Movie

October 21, 2013

Tomorrow is the release date of a new film that exposes the investigation, cover up, and cheating of the infamous UltimateBet online poker scandal. The name of the film is UltimateBeat, which throws light on the scandal and fraud at UltimateBet and how poker players worked together to uncover it.

The film was funded through Kickstarter, a “crowdfunding” site with poker players provided the bigger portion of the funding. The film director is Scott Bell, whose is better known in online poker by his handle ElevenGrover. Bell spent five solid years carrying out research on the scandal.

Private screenings continue in Las Vegas throughout the week and opening night is tomorrow, October 22 when the amazing film will be released internationally. Details on downloading and purchasing will be made available later.

The UltimateBet scandal attracted public attention after players on 2+2 started conducting research on suspicious accounts at the high stakes cash games. Investigations unveiled that Russ Hamilton had duped players by using the “God Mode” backdoor in the software, which allowed him to see the other players’ hands.

Those who made this movie claim that while criminal charges could be unlikely, about four individuals seem to have utilized the inside knowledge of crimes and enriched themselves following the discovery of the cheating. If the film manages to compel them to live with a public knowledge of their own involvement, then it will be a great success.
