WPT Marrakech
March 4, 2022

The WORLD Poker Tour is once again proving they are just that by announcing an exciting WPT international event, this time in exotic Morocco.

The WPT Marrakech is the offspring of a new 3-year deal between the WPT and, a publicly traded Internet poker company currently not available for US players. This mutually beneficial deal will expand Chilipoker's brand awareness, while giving the WPT not only their first opportunity to run major events on the African Continent but also new viewers, as WPT Marrakesh is set to be broadcast on many European TV channels that have never before offered WPT programming.

"We're very glad to be partnering with our friends at Chilipoker--a poker room that is steadily growing in importance on the international scene--to offer WPT tournaments in Morocco," said Steve Lipscomb, WPT Founder, President, and CEO. "Our goal is to bring value to our partners and WPTE shareholders as we expand our global footprint."

The first WPT Marrakech main event will take place next October in the famous Casino de Marrakech and although full details of the tournament have not yet been released, satellites for the event will be available on and other Ipoker network rooms as early as this April.
