Ultimate Poker’s Tom Breitling Deals With First Year Friction

More musings from UP's first year in operation.

Maybe the initial projections for legalized online poker were overly optimistic from the prognosticators, that’s not stopping Ultimate Gaming’s Chairman Tom Breitling from still believing that this is just the beginning of something really big.

So what’s holding people back from jumping in the shark infested waters of online poker? Breitling says it’s “friction.” Pre-Black Friday accounts were fast and easy to set up, partially due to the lack of consumer protection that went along with that. Now, there’s more buttons to click, more info to provide and that means less people get through the process. Not just Ultimate Poker, but the whole gaming industry is working on streamlining this – perhaps, once they do, it will be off to the races.

Watch the video and see what the man behind the big desk has to say about the current state of the online poker market.
