Mobile on Lotus Asia, no hogging on iPoker and more
When it comes to online gaming sites, the software can go through regular updates in order to improve the experience for the user, add more games, include new features and many other tweaks. As a new player, it is important to stay up to date with the major changes in order to be amongst the first to take advantage of them. There is also the concern for existing customers which need to know about the changes at the sites they are playing at.

iPoker adds Heads Up Hogging Prevention
iPoker is the largest online poker network and includes various skins, all using similar software powered by Playtech. The network has recently announced that the software will go through an update in order to add a “Heads Up Hogging Prevention” feature. This will restrict players from taking seats at multiple tables and not actually joining in on the action. The goal of the new feature is to keep the action flowing at the tables and prevent hogging from various users.[geocode id=1]
Ultimate Poker changes rakeback system
Ultimate Poker is the first and only Nevada-licensed online poker room. It was launched a couple of months ago and the response has been pretty well given the new online gaming industry in Nevada. While it has some of the regular bonuses, promotions and rewards found with other online poker rooms, Ultimate Poker has just announced that the VIP program will use a “winner takes all” system for calculating rake points.
Most poker sites use a formula based on how much every player at the table contributed to the pot. An equal percentage of the rake taken from that pot will result in rake points for every player. While this seems to be fair, Ultimate Poker’s decision to opt for a different formula is very interesting. The Director of Operations stated that it is in order to reward the weak players which go all the way very frequently and thus keep them in the game. The update will be made when the 2.0 version of the software will be launched.
Hero Poker might be coming back
Hero Poker was shut down in December and the CEO has recently stated that he is looking to relaunch the site. However, US players will no longer have access to the new poker room, according to David Jung. Further updates will come from Jung as things get closer to lunch-time but it is very likely that it will take several months until anything is set.
The main reason why the card room was shut down last year was because its network partner Merge Gaming was no longer going in the same direction.
