The World Poker Tour (WPT)’s new global poker platform WPT Global will be unveiled at next week’s ICE London 2022 (April 12 to April 14) alongside further innovations.

The WPT showcase its new technology unit at the event, which is spearheaded by innovation studio Kashxa Co, who were instructed to re-imagine poker experiences and engagements for a new generation of audiences.

The pro-poker tournament organizer will launch its new custom-built ‘WPT Global Platform’ that will provide the fairest of competing environments for cash games and tournaments accomodating all levels of poker fans. 

Initial launches of the platform will take place in the markets of Brazil, LatAm (excluding Mexico), and Canada (excluding the province of Ontario).  

The launch of WPT Global aims to place poker at the forefront of disruptive Web 3.0 innovations. Last month, the WPT announced the launch of its ‘Poker Heroes Club’ – pro-poker’s first NFT community powered by GAMAVRS.

The Poker Heroes Club has been incorporated directly with the WPT Global enabling players to use the NFT avatars in poker games and to further compete for once-in-a-lifetime prizes.

WPT Global will launch with a new stable of poker ambassadors to engage with all generations of poker fans including legendary WPT tournament host Vince Van Patten, poker pros Lynn Gilmartin, Tony Dunst, and superstar DJ Steve Aoki.

Finally, as an ICE London exclusive, WPT Global has partnered with VR specialist Wingsuit to showcase delegates with its epic poker-themed VR experience.

During the conference, delegates will be able to participate in the ‘WPT Global Wingsuit VR Challenge Championship’, where an ICE attendee will take possession of an exclusive Poker Heroes NFT.
