Beauty Is 'Skin' Deep at UB and Absolute Poker, Where the Recent Table Skin Design Competition Saw the World of Design Meet Online Poker

The Pair of Leading Online Poker Sites Has Awarded $1,000 Cash and a VIP Las Vegas Package to the Design Guru Judged the Best Entrant in the Table Skin Design Contest

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - June 21, 2010) -  UB and Absolute Poker's Table Skin Design Contest has been run and won, with PATATTACK333 and JUSTIN749 picking up top honors at UB and Absolute Poker respectively for their inspired entries. The pair of design enthusiasts proved they have the creative flare and talent that stands out from the pack; each of their table skin designs will be featured at the online poker rooms, and the competition winners each pocket $1,000 in cash, plus a VIP travel package for Las Vegas to hang with the cool poker crowd during the World Series of Poker* ("WSOP*").

At UB, PATATTACK333 from Phoenix, Arizona, a 29 year-old CG Artist submitted his winning design 'Spaceship,' which evokes a futuristic look at poker. Absolute Poker's winner JUSTIN749, a 32 year-old entrepreneur and poker player from Miami, Florida, drew inspiration from the works of master Michelangelo.

"When I saw the Poker Table Skin Design Contest I knew it was for me. I put long hours and hard work into creating these skins, but to have it pay off like this is a dream come true," said JUSTIN749. "I am very proud to have something I worked on get recognized by Absolute, and honored to have my skin on the site for everyone to use if they wish. Thanks to Absolute Poker for having great promotions that are like no other, and now I am really pumped to go to Vegas to represent AP."

The winning designers have each received a prize package that includes airfare for two to Las Vegas during the WSOP*, 4 nights accommodation, $1K in spending money, invitation to UB's exclusive VIP party on the 33rd floor of the Mandarin Hotel, plus the winning table skin will be featured at Absolute Poker or UB.

The Table Skin Design Contest was the perfect challenge for graphic designers, artists and students. Competition entries were required to be creative, appropriate and respectful of the brand's logos, visually pleasing to poker players, and flexible enough to be used on all table formats, be they ring games, multi-table tournaments, heads-up or short-handed.

Entries were submitted at the Absolute Poker fan page or the UB fan page on Facebook. Become a fan, if you aren't already one, to be part of a growing community of UB and Absolute Poker players looking to connect.
