WPT adds online casino offerings

21 August 2007

The World Poker Tour expanded its online gambling offerings yesterday when it signed a software agreement with Cryptologic to provide Las Vegas-style casino action in addition to its themed online poker room.

"It is important (to the WPT) to offer a superior casino experience with integrity and innovation," said Steven Lipscomb, WPT president and CEO. "Cryptologic's poker software has been extremely popular with our customers, and by adding some of the Internet's most popular casino games, the player's experience at WPT will be second to none."

The WPT launched its new-look European-facing online poker room in conjunction with Cryptologic earlier this year. American customers are not allowed to have WPT real-money poker or casino accounts.

"For Cryptologic, the WPT's new casino site builds on a great partnership that brings together one of the biggest names in gaming with one of the biggest names in e-gaming software," said Javaid Aziz, president and CEO of Cryptologic. "We have earned the WPT's confidence, and it's exciting to see casino and poker together on this very popular site."

The new "mini-casino" will feature Cryptologic's Millionaire's club, a mega-progressive jackpot slot that recently paid out the two largest jackpots in online gaming history - $8 million and $4 million.

The site will also host Cryptologic's exclusive Marvel Comics-based jackpot slots - Hulk and Thor - and popular slots offerings Cubis and Bejeweled.

"By providing a 'mini-casino' of our top-performing games, we're helping customers build player loyalty - and profitability," said A.J. Slivinski, managing director of Cryptologic subsidiary WagerLogic.

Cryptologic already provides software for some of the leading online casinos in the European market including: Intercasino, William Hill, Littlewoods and Playboy Gaming.

Ryan McLane was a poker reporter for Casino City. Although he has a strong background in reporting, the same can't be said for his poker skills. He has never won a major tournament nor is he a professional player. He applied for this job thinking it was a joke, only to find it out that it's true, people will pay you to write about poker. His favorite word is ridiculous.

After receiving his BA in History from Stonehill College in Easton, MA, he somehow ended up freelance reporting for a couple years before being deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom III with the Massachusetts National Guard. He's back now and is a strong advocate of the phrase "God Bless America."

Currently, Ryan lives in Boston and occasionally makes international treks to cover tournament poker and news. Feature writing is his passion and there is no need to ask for his opinion, he'll probably offer it first - free of charge.
