World Poker Tour has debuted a brand-new real money online platform dubbed WPT Global. WPT Global will offer real money games, tournaments, and satellites to major World Poker Tour live events, thus providing yet another layer of excitement for its customers. This new real money platform can now be easily accessed by poker players in more than 1000 countries and jurisdictions now that the brand has completed its soft launch successfully.
WPT Global promises to provide online poker players with one of the best experiences available in the market. Not only will WPT ensure that customers receive the highest level of safety and security thanks to the high-end technology that has been incorporated within the network. But the brand will also make certain that all games across the platform as fair owing to its Game Integrity Engine.
WPT Global will offer a wide variety of games including No-Limit Hold’em and Short Deck cash games that have an array of stakes on offer. Poker players will also be treated to a whole host of additional features including Straddles, Ante Games, Fast Fold Poker, as well as Bomb Pots.
To keep its new customers entertained all through WPT Global has also organized the “$1 for $1 Million” tournament. During this tournament, the poker players will get a chance to compete against others for a chance to walk away with a share of the guaranteed prize pool totaling $1 million. As the name already suggests, the poker players will only have to part with $1 to gain access to the tournament.
In addition to the “$1 for $1 Million” tournament, WPT Global will also host several online satellites for major tournaments internationally. To keep the registrations coming, WPT Global has been offering its customers tickets to its $100K Welcome Main Event. This promotion will see all new customers rewarded with a $110 ticket that will grant them unrestricted access to the $100,000 guaranteed Welcome Event.
All punters have to do to access this bonus is sign up for a WPT Global account and they will be given a $110 ticket as soon as making their initial deposit. All first-time depositors will also be given a 100% match bonus of up to $1200 as an added incentive. All through June, customers will also have access to multiple Day 1 tournaments that will be held each Wednesday and Sunday.
Once 20 percent of the starting field is left, the play will stop. Those that are still standing will be allowed to progress to the Final Day, which is scheduled to take place on July 3rd. This bonus promotion will help new customers greatly as it will provide them with an opportunity to continue trying for a 5-figure finish without all the risk.
Each Flight will only consist of 5,000 participants. The good news though is that those who attempt and fail will be allowed to re-nter on each flight. Because the tournament will take place twice a day for 2 days each week, there will be plenty of chances for punters to walk away with winnings.
The top 13% that successfully pass through the flights will battle each other out until only 8 remain. The 8 punters will face each other again on the final table at the WPT Global virtual event that is scheduled to take place on August 22nd. These final 8 entrants will compete against one another for the larger cash prize, which is expected to surpass $1 million.
WPT Global’s new NFT feature also available for customers
In an effort to jump onto the sweeping NFT craze, WPT Global has also incorporated the “Gamavrs” NFT feature within its software as a bonus feature for its customers. Not only will this feature set the WPT Global platform apart, but it will also help to attract NFT enthusiasts. At the beginning of the year in February, WPT announced that it would be teaming up with Gamavrs to create the first NFT poker club in history.
The new NFT poker club is known as Poker Heroes Club and it marks WPT’s entry into the MetaVerse. GAMAVRS and WPT will work hand in hand to design NFT collections. Once these collections have been created, online poker lovers will be allowed to utilize their Poker Heroes as their avatars and visual representations when taking part in any tables.
To create the first collection, WPT will rely on GAMAVRS’ Web3 creator studio to create 10,000 avatars that will keep players engaged while providing them with a one-of-a-kind experience. The 10,000 avatars will be divided into 3 levels, humans, Gods, and Cyborgs. Aside from giving customers something new to sink their teeth into, the NFT experience will also come with more benefits for members of the Poker Heroes Club.
For instance, Poker Club cardholders will enjoy special access to celebrity poker games. These games will not only feature invite-only guests but will also allow customers to interact with WPT’s ambassadors such as Vince Van Patten and Tony Dunst. WPT is also collaborating with the recognized NFT creator Steve Aoki who will help to spread awareness on NFTs and their place in the Metaverse.
Customers registered in the Poker Club will also be given direct access to the Million Dollar Giveaways, international Live VIP poker events, as well as all the perks associated with the Members Only Club. NFTs in poker have already proven to be a massive hit with experienced poker players such as Phil Ivey.
As such, WPT is hoping to replicate the same results on its platform. Virtual tables that exist in the metaverse have also been growing in popularity among younger poker players. Some poker leagues are also gaining fame for catering exclusively to crypto-based clients as blockchain technology continues to improve.
Not too long ago, WPT announced that it would also be releasing celebrity Poker Heroes NFT avatars. The first round of celebrity poker players that will be depicted on the platform will include Matt Savage, Mario Ho, Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius, Maria Konnikova, Lynn Gilmartin, Andrew “LuckyChewy” Lichtenberger, Brad Owen, Joseph Cheong, Vince Van Patten, Tom Dwan, and more.
