CryptoLogic and WPT Extend Relationship

17 March 2008

World Poker Tour Enterprises and Internet gaming software provider CryptoLogic have extended their relationship by agreeing to work together through at least mid-2011 and to launch Spanish and German language versions of WPT's Internet gaming sites.

The addition of Spanish and German sites comes as WPT is expanding its marketing and broadcast of television broadcast in the fast-growing European market.

WPT Enterprises began using CryptoLogic's poker software, as well as a mini-casino with 13 games, on in 2007. WPT has decided to exercise its option to upgrade to a full Internet casino with more than 200 games.

"Our partnership with Cryptologic - particularly their reputation, proven software and liquidity - has been a key element in delivering a superior World Poker Tour gaming experience for fans in the international space," said Steve Lipscomb, CEO and founder of WPT Enterprises. "Expanding and extending this relationship allows us to take the brand to a higher level."
