The partnership between World Poker Tour and GAMAVRS represents poker’s entrance into the metaverse, with members of the Poker Heroes Club able to use their NFT avatars within WPT Global Client, a new platform created for all international poker players
The freshly-established partnership between WPT and GAMAVRS was announced this early February and represents poker’s entrance into the Metaverse – A hot topic.
GAMAVRS is a proprietary poker NFT community and will work exclusively with the WPT, one of the biggest and most famous names in the world of poker.
The members of the Poker Heroes Club will be able to use their NFT avatars within the soon-to-launch WPT Global Client, a new platform created for all international poker players.
Acquiring an NFT Poker Heroes Club avatar will offer you many advantages, such as $100,000 Freeroll tournaments, Million Dollar Giveaways, an exclusive Members Only Club as well as WPT Live events.
Most importantly – as an avatar holder you will also get the chance to play at the celebrity table with WPT ambassadors such as superstar DJ and multi-talented artist Steve Aoki, who was recently announced as WPT’s newest official ambassador.
The list of WPT official ambassadors also includes other famous names such as Vince Van Patten, Lynn Gilmartin, Tony Dunst, amongst others.
There will be a total of 9,999 Poker Heroes Club NFT avatars available for auction, with the first 250 available for an early pre-sale minting (available from February from 15th, on the GAMAVRS site with OpenSea).
From March 1st onwards, the remaining avatars will be gradually made available for auction over the course of three different phases.
Poker Heroes Club NFT avatars are broken into three different groups, according to their rarity:
- Humans (60% of total supply)
- Cyborgs (30%)
- Gods (10%)
Each group comes with its own set of benefits. God NFT avatars, as the rarest group, come with the most advantages compared to the other two.
Adam Pliska, CEO of World Poker Tour, offered his thoughts on the exclusive partnership: “GAMAVRS is helping us integrate Poker Heroes into the entire WPT experience – We are confident that players who mint or purchase Poker Heroes will appreciate the wide range of benefits afforded to them.”
WPT is also preparing for the launch of its WPT Global brand, making this an exciting period for the company.
Along with the Poker Heroes Club avatars, WPT and GAMAVRS are also partnering to auction NFT ‘Moments’ – capturing memorable moves made by Poker legends. Phil Ivey’s ‘A Legendary Bluff in Poker History’ sold for an impressive 40 ETH, ($124,142.80 USD at this time of writing)
