Basically every poker player has heard of the World Poker Tour before, but many people don’t know that they have been running a poker room the past six years. The site first opened in 2005, but not many people have even heard of the poker site. They have grown in popularity the past few years, as the poker room is now apart of the bwin.party network, which boasts huge traffic levels. They are licensed by the government of Gibraltar.
WPTPoker is owned by bwin.party and uses the same software that Party Poker uses. Since the poker room is apart of the bwin.party network, and they have tons of player traffic that keep the tables busy 24/7. You can only access the poker software by downloading the files, but once you download everything you’ll be ready to begin playing online poker with the crew.
Bonus and Promotions
WPT Poker has a fairly small sign-up bonus, but that’s because they have tons of promotions. New players will be able to earn a bonus of 100% up to $100 on their 1st deposit. You don’t need to use a code, as it’s automatically credited to your bonus balance. They will credit your bonus to your real balance in 10% increments and it takes 6 points to clear each $1 of the sign-up bonus. The welcome bonus may be small, but they make up for it by offering thousands of dollars worth of promotions every month.
Games & Tournaments
There are a lot of micro staked – medium stakes ring tables games running daily, but they definitely specialize in tournaments. Every month WPTPoker.com hosts thousands of tournaments with millions in prize money up for grabs. There are also satellites running monthly where players get the chance to try and win a seat into a live poker tournament such as a WPT or WSOP tournament. You can play Omaha, 7 Card Stud, Texas Holdem, Omaha Hi/Lo and 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo on both the ring game tables and tournament tables.
Finding a deposit option is never a hassle at WPT Poker. They have lots of deposit options including Visa, Maestro, Visa Electron, MasterCard, Neteller, Click2Pay, Moneybookers, Ukash, WebMoney, EntroPay, Western Union and Bank Wires. Most of the deposits have a 100% approval rate, but if you use your credit card it may be blocked in a small number of countries.
I love the fact they offers 24/7 support, but they don’t have live chat. You can only contact them by using a support email or telephone number. Both the email and telephone support are available 24/7 and all of the support reps are qualified to provide support for most questions/problems.
