- WPT Global offers cash games, tournaments and satellites to major WPT live events
- The platform also includes a unique NFT feature
Players across the globe now have access to the World Poker Tour’s newest offering, WPT Global.
The new real-money online poker platform is now live in nearly 100 countries and jurisdictions after completing its soft launch last week.
WPT Global Main Features
WPT Global promises to provide the highest level of safety and security through cutting-edge technology. The site’s seating mechanism is powered by machine learning, with a dedicated Game Integrity Engine also in place to ensure fairness across all games.
The platform offers No-Limit Hold’em and Short Deck cash games with a wide range of stakes available. Players also get to enjoy some extra features such as Bomb Pots, Ante Games, Fast-Fold poker and Straddles.
When it comes to tournaments, WPT Global will run the “$1 for $1 Million” where players get the opportunity to compete for a share of $1 million in guaranteed prize pool for a buy-in of only $1. Apart from that, the site will also be hosting online satellites for major live WPT tournaments worldwide.
The WPT is handing out free tickets to a $100K Welcome Main Event to all players joining the site. This cool perk does not require any deposits. Players only need to register on the platform and verify their email address.
Poker players who are also into non-fungible tokens (NFTs) will be happy to know that WPT Global has integrated the “Gamavrs” NFT feature into its software. This will enable players to enjoy in-game benefits which come in the form of freeroll tournaments, as well as access to exclusive tables and WPT live tournaments.
Players will be rewarded according to the rarity of the Gamavrs which is classified into three levels – Human, Cyborgs, and Gods. Holders of Humans NFT get the chance to participate in freerolls, become a member of a private Discord group, and earn seats on WPT Global.
Cyborgs will enable players to compete with popular pros, while those owning Gods Gamavrs will earn tickets to take part in huge WPT live events.
The countries where WPT Global is currently live include, among others, Brazil, Canada, Dominican Republic, Finland, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Luxembourg, Maldives, Mexico, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine and Venezuela.
At the moment, players based in the US and the UK are blocked from creating an account with WPT Global but they might be covered soon as the brand is expected to expand its operations to as many countries as possible.
