The rules of poker may seem simple enough – the best had wins the pot… or should we say what your opponent thinks may be the best hand will win you the pot.. However, the game of poker can be played in more styles or variations than most people realize. In World Poker Tour, players can choose from 15 pre-set poker variations, including Omaha, Pineapple, Super Hold’em, Billabong, Tahoe, Shanghai, and of course, Texas Hold’em.

But beyond these 15 variations, World Poker Tour allows the player to create his or her custom poker game by adjusting different rules and limits within the Create-a-Poker Game feature! Poker players with their own “family rules” – be it multiple Joker cards, low/high values, number of drawing rounds, and more – will be able to recreate their own specialized poker rules with the game, save it, and make it available for people to play online! When it comes to playing exciting poker, World Poker Tour delivers it in every style.

World Poker Tour features six Tour-exclusive casinos. These include The Bicycle Casino in Bell Gardens, CA; Commerce Casino in Commerce, CA; Bay 101 in San Jose, CA; Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantaucket, CT; Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, NJ; and The Aviation Club de France, in Paris, France. These real-world locations are completely accurate, right down to the carpeting, lighting, room décor, and floor layout.

World Poker Tour invites gamers and poker-junkies alike to try their luck and skills against some of the poker series' most famous professional players. Commentary provided by World Poker Tour pros Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten, real World Poker Tour venues and broadcast overlays bring players the only true poker experience.
