World Poker Tour embraces NFTs with world’s first ‘NFT poker club’

The collection will enable online poker players to represent themselves as tables using an array of virtual avatars

The World Poker Tour has partnered with GAMAVRS to create a landmark non-fungible token collection.

Dubbed the ‘Poker Heroes Club’, club members will be able to use their ‘Poker Heroes’ as in-game avatars and virtual representations of themselves at the tables.

To launch the collection, WPT will work exclusively with Web3 creator studio GAMAVRS to produce the 10,000 avatars in a bid to bring greater engagement and player rewards to the latest generation of players playing exclusively online on virtual tables.

Ownership of a Poker Heroes NFT comes with an array of exclusive benefits for holders, including the ability to join celebrity poker tables featuring WPT ambassadors including Vince Van Patten and Tony Dunst alongside Steve Aoki, a notorious NFT collector in the space known for his ventures in the metaverse.

Avatars also grant holders access to ‘Million Dollar Giveaways’, global WPT Live VIP Events and an exclusive ‘Members Only Club’.
