Easy Xmas Challenges and a Player-Friendly Ethos at WPT Global
Here at PokerListings we try to keep our community of players in touch with what’s going on in the world of real money online poker - anything that helps players both make the most of poker sites and understand how they work... Here’s the latest from WPT Global.
A Few Days of Xmas
Just because a promotion is well underway, it doesn’t mean it’s not still worth tuning into. WPT Global’s 12 Days of Xmas Challenge is one such, as it continues until 12 December and therefore has plenty to take advantage of in the meantime.
The aim of the game here is to earn prizes by completing various challenges, such as simply playing in a Bounty or Turbo tournament, trying Rabbit Hunt or winning three hands at Poker Flips … dive in, and have fun - it’s hardly rocket science!
WPT Global’s Fair Play Algorithm
For the vast majority of players (just about everyone, in fact), when we sit down at the virtual tables to play online poker tournaments or Texas Hold'em cash games, there’s virtually no consideration as to how we came to be seated alongside our fellow players.
At WPT Global, however, there’s what’s called a fair play algorithm that has been designed to make sure that all players get a fair chance at success during their sessions, thus enhancing the experience.
This is achieved by putting in place a limit on the number of the most skilled players who can sit at each table. Such a measure is aimed at protecting new and inexperienced players, an approach which some might suggest isn’t in the interest of experienced, winning grinders, for example, but at the same time contributes to maintaining the online poker eco-system by helping recreational players avoid not surviving too long in the game.
By not finding yourself surrounded by experienced, wily sharks and perhaps seeing your bankroll suffer as a result, you’re more likely to keep your money better protected while improving, and in turn have a long and prosperous and enjoyable future in poker. This, of course, can only be a good thing, and all players - including the aforementioned sharks – benefit in the long-term.
It’s also reassuring to note that WPT Global has a team of over 50 industry experts (including former poker professionals) who use AI detection tools to monitor games 24/7 for potentially nefarious practices. Finally, all security cases undergo independent reviews by at least two team members in order to maintain accuracy and objectivity.
