The World Poker Tour will conquer Asia with Ourgame - Poker business
The World Poker Tour (WPT) is one of the worlds most attended poker circuits alongside the World Series of Poker (WSOP). Unlike the early presence of the WSOP in the global scale, Asia remains another continent to conquer for the WPT. Since the year 2013, the WSOP has already served Asia and its poker fans with a number of circuits including the WSOP Asia-Pacific. It takes a few years of wait before the WPT could prepare everything and land in Asia. In fact, the WPT recently signed a partnership agreement with Ourgame International Holdings Limited; the deal would see both parties jointly organize WPT-stamped poker tournaments in a dozen Asian countries. Recall that in 2009, the WPT tentatively made inroads into the Chinese poker market with the holding of the WPT National held in the poker room of MGM Grand Sanya. This time, the WPT-Ourgame tandem is ripe to really enter the Asian market.
It is also worth noting that Ourgame is a mainland China-based company working in the gambling industry since 1998; it aims to be the No.1gaming company in the region. Thanks to this freshly signed partnership, Ourgame is granted an exclusive WPT license to run poker events in Bhutan, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Laos, Nepal, Macau, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines and in Vietnam. It also includes exclusive rights to TV broadcasting of events and the launching of WPT branded free online games.
Additionally, the WPT World Tour includes new stops with the emergence of other WPT and WPT National Asia events.
