Virgin Voyages has partnered with the World Poker Tour to establish the “WPT at Sea” Poker Room on the line’s ship Scarlet Lady.
Utilizing eight custom poker tables and staffed with professional dealers, the room offers beginner training, cash games, satellites, and WPT Prize Package tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $80 to $320.
The $320 buy-in main event will be held during each sailing. Based on the number of participants, the event may award a WPT prize package (valued at $5,000), which may be used on any future voyage or WPT event.
The poker room will utilize cashless participation, allowing all transactions to be easily handled on guests’ wearable devices.
“As a new brand with an innovative spirit, we’ve been fortunate to introduce many industry firsts, including our partnership with the World Poker Tour and WPT at Sea,” said Tom McAlpin, CEO of Virgin Voyages. “Our adult-only, premium experience offers an incredible backdrop, not only for a great vacation, but also as an oasis for the WPT in a way never seen before.”
