WPT and Partypoker, two of the most important live events providers from the poker industry, have recently decided to join forces and offer poker lovers access to a greater number of live events. Their collaboration will have numerous benefits for poker lovers from Europe and Canada because they will not ever miss an important event. WPT was the one that announced the partnership on 29 August 2018. The press release informs the readers that the two providers will be partners for the next 4 years. They have already planned to organize seven major events in the industry in Europe and Canada. The prizes that the players will receive will be around €3 million.
Events organized by the two new partners
PartyPoker and WPT announced that the first tournament they will organize together will take place in Canada this October. The event will be hosted at Montreal Playground Poker Club. It will be unique in the poker world because three main events are expected to be organized in a single location. WPT Main Tour, The WPT500, and the WPRDeepStacks are all taking place in Montreal. In the past, only two events were planned together, the WPT and WPTDeepStacks in Amsterdam. Without this partnership, poker enthusiasts wouldn’t have been able to enjoy a tournament of this magnitude, so it is understandable that everyone is excited.
The official announcement also states that the WPT and Partypoker have in plan to organize other events in Sochi, Russia next February, and in the UK next April. As soon as they decide the venue and date for the other events, they will announce it to the public.
How do poker enthusiasts benefit from this partnership?
Both partners state that their collaboration will revolutionize the industry because their joined forces can power unique events. They are dedicated to offering high-quality events for poker players and want to improve the game for an exquisite experience. In Europe, the two industry giants are expected to raise the bar in terms of poker tournament planning and offer participants access to never-before-seen events and amenities.
Because poker players can now visit Partypoker’s online service, they can also have access to new events. Joining an event is even possible with a small sum. The satellites to these events cost as little as $0.01 and there are around 300 seats per festival. Poker lovers will have access to live streams from various locations simply via the Partypoker or WPT online platforms or they can install the My Partypoker LIVE app. The events can be watched on multiple devices, on both desktop and mobile versions.
According to Partypoker and WPT, poker players will have the possibility to use a new currency named Partypoker LIVE Dollars. LIVE Dollars currency is designed especially for poker tournaments and the users can purchase visas, accommodation, and other similar things associated with Partypoker LIVE tournaments.
