Unibet Poker relaunches live streams on Twitch

Range of weekly shows to include Ian Simpson competing in all the biggest Unibet Sunday MTTs

Unibet Poker is relaunching its programme of live streams on Unibet’s official Twitch channel with broadcasts taking place at least four times a week.

The schedule highlight will be Unibet Ambassador and 2013 Irish Open champion Ian Simpson who will be competing in all Unibet Poker’s major multi-table tournaments (MTTs) on Sundays.

“I’m really looking forward to these new sessions. I already have around 9,000 Twitch followers but being on the main Unibet Poker channel is an exciting chance to stream to a bigger audience than usual. It’s also a great opportunity to highlight the very best of Unibet Poker’s online tournaments and showcase the award-winning Unibet software”, says Ian Simpson who joined Unibet Poker as an ambassador and streamer three years ago.

Simpson, who turned pro in 2012 has already built up a strong following on his own Twitch channel continues: “I’ll be starting at 5pm UK time every Sunday, gearing up for Unibet’s flagship Sunday tournament – the €100 buy-in Supernova tournament – which starts at 6pm. I’ll be streaming until I win or bust! Whichever comes sooner!”

“We’re really looking forward to the launch of our new programme of live streams on the official Unibet Poker Twitch channel. This is the first time in five years that we’re hosting a regular live stream schedule on Twitch and we’re bringing together a whole bunch of talented and charismatic players, gamers and streamers to entertain our community. We know the shows are going to be a lot of fun to watch for everyone, whether you’re a regular online grinder or a new player just starting out in online poker”, says Kristoffer Bergvall, Head of Poker at the Kindred Group.

Several other well-known personalities in the Unibet community will also be streaming on the channel. These include Scottish gamer and Unibet streamer Lucia ‘Lulu_Luna” Nichols every Tuesday from 5pm UK time, Mark O’Hare’s “Bestie’s Home Games” on Fridays from 8.30pm and Lyle “elron66” Bateman’s The Mothership broadcast every Saturday from 6pm.

Also joining the schedule in the near future will be Unibet Ambassador Monica Vaka and Unibet Open commentator Henry Kilbane.

All the streamers will be running ad hoc promotions during their shows which will include a wealth of not-to-missed fun giveaways. Eventually the schedule is set to feature around 20 hours of live broadcasts every week.

A number of special unique streams featuring other well-known Unibet Ambassadors are also planned and likely to involve some fierce competition and rivalry among the celebrity players. Stream alerts and links will be published live on the Unibet Poker client so that no one misses the chance to watch the pros and join in the fun.
