Deposit Match Bonus: 100% up to $1,200
For new depositors, WPT Global’s Welcome Offer is a 100% deposit match bonus: a minimum of $20 up to $1,200 maximum matched and unlocked in $5 increments for every $20 in rake contribution. This is an unusually large maximum bonus amount for an online poker offering and applies no matter which deposit method is used. Players have 90 days from the time of initial deposit to clear the full deposit match bonus amount (playing any games, tournament or cash), after which any that has not been unlocked is forfeited.
Games and App Features
Online poker games offered on WPT Global include no limit hold’em, 6+ (Short Deck/Strip Deck) hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha (MTTs). There are variations in format, including Pace Poker, where players have the option to fast-forward to new hands without waiting for the rest of the table. Soon to be released: Splash Poker, adding a preflop ante from each player to the regular blinds for boosted pots.
The app boasts detailed, engaging table themes and avatars, in-game emojis and an easy-to-use interface, regardless of device.
Coming soon: The WPT Global Loyalty Program will introduce a new rewards system that redistributes rake according to players’ contribution to engagement and entertainment, encouraging the growth of a sustainable ecosystem that is fair and fun for both those new to the game and experienced players. Rake levels will vary with stakes at individual tables, as well as the number and activity of players; starting new games, playing short-handed or tough tables and refraining from predatory behaviour will all increase the rewards in terms of rake return. Both new and established players have the opportunity to benefit from the flexible system.
Regular Tournaments and Special Events
There are dozens of WPT Global daily tournaments with buy-ins at the $2, $11, $25 $55, $75 and $109 levels, with bigger weekly and special events rounding out the tournament lobby. There are two daily freerolls, too, for those looking for practice or to boost their bankroll for nothing. The daily $220 Progressive Bounties Turbo and $550 Deepstack Turbo cater for higher rollers (the latter features two daily satellites with $25 and $55 buy-ins).
Tournament types on offer:
- No limit hold’em
- Pot limit Omaha (PLO)
- Short Deck
- KO (Bounty Hunter) and PKO (Progressive Bounties) for all game types. These formats place part of the buy-in as a bounty on each player’s head; knocking them out picks up this extra prize money. In Progressive Bounty tournaments, part of a busted player’s bounty is added to the eliminating player’s, building individual head prizes as the tournament progresses. There are KO and PKO tournaments running at all buy-in levels, with structures from Slow to Hyper Turbo.
The ¥550 Golden Weekly Tournament has flights running throughout the week to give players in all time zones a convenient shot at a guaranteed prize pool of ¥688k (over $100,000). Satellites to this weekly event run twice a day (for $25 or $55).
WPT Global is also, of course, the home of satellites to live WPT events around the world. Tickets can be won to some of the most prestigious offline events in the poker calendar, with upcoming and current satellites visible in their lobby tab in-app.
Celebrating launch, WPT Global’s Influencer Event (May-June 2022) brings together stars of the high-stakes world and the most respected poker influencers and vloggers to host a series of exclusive $10,000 freerolls.
All special events, like the $1 for $1 Million mega-tournament and the $100,000 GTD Welcome Event are highlighted on the WPT Global website, where you can find current details of all promotions and flagship tournaments.
