WPN Breathes New Life into Online Poker Industry with Major Innovations

4 October 2018

The Winning Poker Network (WPN) has been hard at work reinvigorating the online poker industry, which has become somewhat stale in recent years. By embracing technological innovations like cryptocurrencies, introducing new games like Six Plus Hold’em, and catering to high rollers, WPN is offering poker players a better experience and delivering more traffic for its affiliate partners.

“The online poker industry has been languishing some, but we’ve got the prescription to help the game thrive again and that’s innovation,” stated Michael Harris, WPN Affiliates spokesman.

WPN processed its first Bitcoin transaction in 2015 and now accepts over 60 different cryptocurrencies for deposits and withdrawals. Despite accounting for just 2% of business in the first year, cryptos now represent a whopping 60% of all transactions across the network.

Cryptocurrencies are instrumental in driving traffic and increasing player value.  Bitcoin and other options are also dramatically cheaper to process.  Compared to traditional banking methods which cost 13% on average to process, cryptocurrencies cost sites just 2%.

Although traditional Texas Hold’em does have its share of defenders, attracting new fans has been difficult for online card rooms in 2018.  With an abundance of instructional material available online, the games have become tougher and less appealing for recreational players. By evolving alongside the game and offering new variants like Six Plus Hold’em, WPN is able to appeal to new and recreational players.

With no 2 through 5 cards in the deck and modified hand rankings, Six Plus Hold'em players can expect bigger hands, more action, and larger pots.  WPN sites are proud to offer Six Plus Hold’em for both tournaments and cash games.

WPN is embracing high rollers by hosting frequent $1,000,000 GTD tournaments with a $2,650 buy-in.  Designed for high rollers who have seen their VIP rewards cut by competing online poker rooms, these tourneys have amassed a huge following in just a few short weeks. While they were originally designed to be temporary, the big turnout means they will become a regular staple on the Sunday schedule.

While many poker sites consider high stakes players to be undesirable, WPN welcomes them with open arms in other ways.  The site’s new $50/$100 7-day no-rathole tables are a favorite of players with deep pockets, but they’re also popular with railbirds who love watching players build six-figure stacks. 7-day no rathole tables feature a 10 big blind buy-in and require players who return within a week to come back with the same amount they left with.
