Documentary on UltimateBet Scandal to Air
Doublehead Pictures will release its documentary on the UltimateBet cheating scandal on Tuesday October 22 in Video on Demand format.

Director Scott Bell is promoting production via Youtube and social and poker channels.

"After successfully launching a popular [online poker] site, a group of insiders used software access to defraud players over a period of years without detection. When discovered, they went to great lengths to cover-up the crimes in order to repay less than the amount stolen,” according to publicity material.

"Nobody was ever investigated, arrested, indicted or prosecuted for the crimes. The subtext is how a small group of players crowd-sourced an online investigation to force UltimateBet into repaying far more than they intended, if not fully."

Bell claims: "The guys who ran UltimateBet could not have succeeded at this without some level of player and poker media acquiescence during the boom years. That general sense of 'don't rock the boat because we are all making a lot of money' thing.

“Working on this case is a story unto itself with a lot of ups/downs and weird twists. One example is the lawyer for Pierson, et al sending a young intern down to help us out last year on a Vegas shoot. I mean, spies. C'mon."
