There are just over 100 days left until the start of the WPT World Championship, and WPT Global is looking to send some players to Las Vegas with its latest promotion, Poker Flips. The new game is live on the client now, and WPT Global will reward regular players through a leaderboard with cash prizes and packages to the Championship at the end of the year.
The new Poker Flips feature on the WPT Global app adds a unique twist to Heads-Up No-Limit Hold’em. Poker Flips players are actually not the ones playing the hands in this game — instead, they bet on the winning player and hand in a match between two computer players.
The roulette-style game sets the odds for various outcomes, and players can place bets on the winning player and on the hand the player will win with. Bets are made using a colorful interface with different outcomes, paying different rates, depending on hand frequencies.
Besides winnings from the game, WPT Global is adding special incentives through a leaderboard promotion. The weekly and monthly leaderboards add more value to Poker Flips with cash prizes and packages to the big WPT World Championship event in Las Vegas in December.
Poker Flips: A New Way to Enjoy Heads-up Poker
The novel Poker Flips game from WPT Global looks to be something pretty innovative in the poker world. While it has some similarities with formats we have seen in the past, what makes this game unique is that the player doesn’t actually play any poker; instead, they bet on how a hand between two computer-generated players will play out.
Players bet on hands between Cowboy and Bull. Betting on what hand will win is just one of many options. It is also possible to bet on the hand the player will win with, with payout odds adjusted based on the likelihood of a particular hand happening. These betting options allow players to win big with one lucky guess.
Poker Flips Bet Multipliers
|Bet Field||Point Multiplier on winning bets|
|Cowboy or Bull||1x|
|High Card / One Pair||1.5x|
|Trips, Straight, Flush||4x|
|Quads, Straight Flush, Royal Flush||100x|
WPT Global will also be rewarding regular players of the game with extra points through an Activity Bonus. The more you play, the more bonus points you gain:
- Three Days in a Row: 50 pts
- Five Days in a Row: 200 pts
- Seven Days in a Row: 400 pts
All points accrued go towards the weekly and monthly leaderboards, where players can win cash prizes and entries to the coveted year-end Championship event. Besides weekly cash prizes, as shown here, the monthly leaderboard will give away WPT Championship packages worth more than $12k to the top five finishers.
