World Poker Tour Partners with Zynga Poker
The World Poker Tour (WPT) recently announced that it has partnered with social video game giant Zynga!
Declared Goal is “to bring the WPT experience into Zynga Poker”. That means they are going to release WPT-themed tournaments at Zynga Poker this year.
“We are incredibly proud to bring the World Poker Tour to Zynga”
Adam Pliska CEO of the World Poker Tour said: “We’re incredibly proud to bring the World Poker Tour to Zynga Poker. Zynga has built the largest social poker game, and we are confident their millions of players will enjoy their experience even more with the introduction of WPT-themed tournaments.”
Zynga Poker does not offer online poker for real money. However, it is by far the biggest online poker site in the world and that with their playmoney client alone!
Zynga has 3.5 times more traffic than PokerStars!
The player average is a staggering 38,500 players, which is more than 3.5 times the average of PokerStars (11,000)!
Although it is a playmoney poker app, players can purchase chips with real money. In addition to that mobile poker apps are the next big thing and Zynga gives the WPT access to thousand of players and potential customers.
So one can easily understand why Adam Pliska is very excited.
