The World Poker Tour (WPT) is one of the premier brands in land-based poker. After being bought in 2009 by PartyGaming, the world’s largest online gambling firm, WPT’s online poker room was relaunched with the aim of emulating WPT’s success with land-based tournaments online.
The WPT regularly hosts big money tournaments around the world, attracting the poker’s best players. For WPT Poker, this expertise in land-based poker is combined with that of their hugely experienced owners in order to create a competitive, fair and well-designed online poker experience.
Software and Graphics
WPT Poker uses the same basic software as market leading online poker room PartyPoker. Although the graphics are slightly behind some of the newer software on the market used by other poker rooms, WPT Poker is still perfectly functional and the lack of demand on processor power means players can easily multi table without running into problems.
Players can quickly find their favourite poker games by telling the WPT Poker software what kind of game they want to play and for what stakes, and then either be seated directly or be shown a list of suitable tables. Users can also play blackjack and roulette games on the side to help pass the time between hands or while waiting for a tournament to seat.
Poker Game Varieties
The standard online offering of poker games is available via WPT Poker, including market leaders such as No Limit Texas Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha. Along with the other games such as 7 Card Stud, Pot Limit Hold’em, Limit Texas Hold’em and No Limit Omaha, WPT Poker also offer the innovative Double Hold’em in Limit, Pot Limit and No Limit forms.
In Double Hold’em, which follow the same basic rules as Texas Hold’em, players are dealt three hole cards instead of two. After the flop is dealt, players then nominate a ‘point card’, which can be used to create two 2-card hands.
Sign Up Bonus and Reward Scheme
WPT Poker offer some of the most generous bonuses on the market with some codes giving players 100% sign up bonuses up to $1,500WPT Poker’s backing by PartyPoker means that it shares many of the top of the line promotions offered there. These promotions usually involve collecting WPT Points by meeting certain criteria while playing, which can in turn be exchanged for entry into freerolls, seats at tournaments and to obtain rakebacks. WPT Poker also regularly runs tournaments where players can gain access to WPT and WSOP events.
