Everyone is aware that the World Poker Tour is one of the most well-known poker brands on par with the World Series. Since 2002, it has been hosting its live series. In this article, we will discuss its new online venture, WPT Global.
Although the World Poker Tour is primarily recognized as the organizer of live tournaments, they have also made multiple online appearances. ClubWPT and PlayWPT have been operational for several years. In recent years, there have been a number of collaborative series with partypoker and GGnetwork with up to $1,000,000 in guarantees.
In February of this year, the Poker Heroes Club was introduced as one of the final steps toward a brand-new poker room:
Table play for the WPT Global began on February 12, 2022.
True, the launch is officially referred to as “preliminary,” which is comparable to a beta test. From the former Soviet Union, only players from Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan may register. In all other WPT Global rooms, it is a traditional online poker room, most akin to Asian applications:
As with any new room, WPT Global places a premium on promotions that can attract players. By registering until April 24, all new players will receive a $110 ticket to Sunday’s $100,000 guaranteed flit.
The first deposit is eligible for a 100% bonus up to $1,200, which must be wagered within 90 days, and payouts are $5 for every $20 of rake (25% rakeback).
Rakeback is a meager 3-4%. For deposits, both traditional payment methods and five cryptocurrencies, including USDT, are accepted.
Loyalty scheme is expected to be released at the end of summer, but WPD players in the WPT Global will already have access to a high rakeback offer and a $10,000 private tournament beginning on May 1.
Obviously, in order to reap all of these “benefits,” you must play at tables with varying stakes at least throughout the day and evening. Because to its long-standing relationships in Asia and China, the World Poker Tour was already able to offer its beginner-friendly area with sufficient traffic.
The price of tables will increase from $0.01/$0.02/$0.06 (third digit, straddle size) to $15/$30/$60($15).
We have included a snapshot of the hand from the previous restriction at the start of this post. In NL15$, for instance, the local version of “quick poker” acquires up to 100 connections.
The MTT grid is dominated by events with medium BI formats and up to $35,000 in guarantees. The guarantee for the primary weekly Golden Weekly event with an approximate buy-in of $86 is $100,000.
As stated at the beginning of the post, all of the characteristics of WPT Global indicate that the poker room is primarily geared at Asian players. This approach is supported by the presence of the most populous, rapidly expanding nations with a long history of gambling.
On the basis of the World Poker Tour’s experience, it is reasonable to expect that the poker room will see an increase in foot traffic in 2022.
WPT Global must broaden its bonus scheme for other sorts of gamers in the near future. The continued development of a product as distinctive as Poker Heroes Club would be of tremendous assistance in this regard.
Nowadays, the PC client is the most significant issue in the room. Without renovation, it will be more difficult to attract players who are used to rolling in traditional roumes. We will monitor the evolution of WPT Global and keep you informed of the newest developments.
