For the past 14 years, the TV broadcast and global tournament series have consistently delivered an experience that is unrivaled in poker and arguably unmatched by many professional sports and gaming leagues. The success can be attributed to the personalities involved, including the tenured team of Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten, and most of all, to the total immersion experience that is offered at every event, both at and away from the tables.
Wicked+ is tasked with telling the story of the WPT experience, not only surrounding each event, but continuously throughout the year through earned media. Our focus is to reach a greater audience outside of diehard poker fans to increase overall TV interest/viewership and acquisitions.
WPT Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to utilizing World Poker Tour’s exceptional international platform to influence positive change on a global scale. The core of WPT Foundation’s fundraising efforts is the ongoing series of philanthropic poker events titled WPT Playing for a Better World.
