Is ClubWPT a Gambling Website?
No, it is not. In order for a website to be a gambling website, players will need to place money on a game like poker, blackjack, slots or other casino games and risk this money in order to gain prizes or cash. This does not happen in ClubWPT as players will not buy chips or place real money wagers in order to get cash prizes. Players will pay a fee to get a VIP membership in order to get access to VIP benefits such as monthly sweepstakes and tickets to certain WPT events. Players can even enjoy free rolls tournaments without paying the monthly fee through the free Basic Membership.
ClubWPT also respects the laws and regulations of every state and country. This is why ClubWPT only grants the VIP membership and the ability to enter the sweepstakes to players who live in countries or states that allow such sweepstakes and it respects the rules of each state. Players who reside in countries or states where sweepstakes are not legal will not be able to purchase the VIP Membership and will be excluded from the sweepstakes.
The list of countries where it is legal includes Australia, Canada, France and the UK alongside 36 states and districts in the US. The list of states includes Ohio, Virginia, Wisconsin, D.C, Colorado, Florida, New York City, Texas, Utah, Rhode Island and New Jersey, among others. So players should check their eligibility for tournaments and sweepstakes before applying for a VIP Membership. Players who live in areas other than the ones mentioned will still be able to enter ClubWPT through the free membership to access the articles, the resources and the interviews of the WPT alongside enjoying the free rolls tournaments.
