The World Poker Tour (WPT) has launched its social casino platform, PlayWPT.

The first product launched by the WPT in partnership with its parent company, China’s Ourgame, the platform features PlayWPT Poker which allows players to enjoy ring games, tournaments and Sit’n’Gos around the clock.

It also boasts PlayWPT Slots series, allowing players to shoot for a virtual jackpot in any of its three slots titles – Dinosaurs, Mayan Ruins and World War.

Users can access PlayWPT via desktop or Facebook, with a mobile version set to launch within the coming months.

“The PlayWPT platform is the foundation for WPT’s revolutionary approach to the social casino gaming space,” said WPT CEO Adam Pliska. “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.”
