WPT Global To Roll Out Loyalty Program That Will Punish Predatory Behaviour
- WPT Global will soon roll out a global loyalty program
- The loyalty program will likely give more rewards to recreational players
- The operator believes predatory behavior is destroying the poker ecosystem
WPT Global in partnership with the World Poker Tour (WPT) dealt its first virtual cards back in April.
WPT Global is a relatively new player in the online poker market, but the platform is already beginning to make a mark in the online arena through its unique features, including the integration of NFTs.
The platform is currently available in more than 85 countries worldwide, offering a decent line-up of cash games and tournaments, with players also enjoying some exciting promotions. Being a newcomer in the industry, WPT Global will need to work hard to catch up with the giants, but its association with a premier brand, the WPT, should make things easier for the platform.
Among the areas WPT Global will most likely focus on is its loyalty program which will be rolled out soon.
WPT Global Inclined to Give More Rewards to Casual Players
WPT Global has yet to announce the complete details but we can assume the system will come with some unique twists in line with the operator’s commitment to providing a fairer and more enjoyable platform for the casual players.
Based on initial information, the operator will likely award rakeback according to the behaviour of players. The bigger chunk will go to the losing players and those that don’t mind competing at short-handed tables.
Meanwhile, players who are in it just for the money, such as those who only join tables when they spot a “fish“, and then sit out of the games when they don’t have potential targets, will receive lower rakeback. Most of the players who practice this are the regular pros who are always on the hunt for +EV.
Focus On Predatory Behaviour
The idea of giving more rewards to recreational players coincides with WPT Global’s goal of minimizing predatory behaviour at the tables. Over the years, there have been efforts across the industry to devise a loyalty program in such a way that recreational players receive more rewards than the regulars.
But that system has also proved controversial, with some issues being raised, such as the lack of transparency and regular players not being rewarded enough.
