WPT® Social Casino Game Creates Foundation for Extensive Portfolio of Products
Hong Kong (August 31, 2016) – World Poker Tour® today announced the launch of PlayWPT™, a social casino platform with innovative features and state-of-the-art creative elements inspired by WPT®’s 15 years of experience in gaming entertainment. The first product launched by WPT in partnership with its parent company, Ourgame International Holdings, Ltd, PlayWPT is available worldwide and currently supports two variations of its product, social poker and slots.
PlayWPT Poker marries vibrant presentation and dynamic animations with instinctive functionality. Unlike other social poker sites, the in-game currency at PlayWPT is strategically limited, creating a more competitive environment and ultimately a more authentic poker experience. Players can enjoy non-stop action around the clock in the various ring games, tournaments, and sit-n-gos, and players can represent themselves at the table with lively, hand-drawn avatars in addition to dozens of innovative, animated emojis.
PlayWPT Slots currently offers a three-game series named Time Slots™, featuring an interconnected story that creates a rich and immersive experience for users looking to hit the virtual jackpot. Venture back to the pre-historic era and try to avoid becoming extinct in Dinosaurs, crack an ancient puzzle while avoiding capture in Mayan Ruins, and report to the frontline to defend your homeland in World War.
Users from around the globe can access PlayWPT on desktop and on Facebook, with the mobile component launching at the end of the third quarter of 2016. Each touchpoint will link to one singular account, allowing players to seamlessly switch devices without interrupting the user experience.
“The PlayWPT platform is the foundation for WPT’s revolutionary approach to the social casino gaming space,” said Adam Pliska, CEO and President of the WPT. “Alongside Ourgame, WPT can now develop more products at a faster rate with the best features and functions available, allowing WPT to fully leverage its already established global distribution channels which reach hundreds of millions of potential customers worldwide.”
