World Poker Tour Enterprises (WPTE), will sell the most shares of the company to a private investment group called, Gamynia Limited. Gamynia has paid a bit over 9 million US dollars for this, and they will also pay a small percentage of future earnings to the previous stockholders. Gamynia Limited, will continue running WPT as usual, but they will also try to get into the online gaming market, this in order to grow even bigger and hopefully make a greater profit.
Steve Lipscomb, President and CEO of WPT Enterprises, comment the affair like this.
"We believe this transaction will enable the World Poker Tour to realize its full potential across both its existing businesses and the lucrative online gaming market, Gamynia and its partners possess highly complementary resources which will help it invest in and effectively integrate with the World Poker Tour efficiently and profitably."

Depends on the benchmark. You could win the main Event of the WSOP and then buy the WPT XD

| A NEW poker room? Can i smell a new no deposit bonus here?|
This WPT poker will need some good promos to find a place in the online poker market.

| WPT poker room has been around for quite some time actually...|
) mill is a fair price, considdering that they will get a revenue of the future events. Its like selling it for 100 000 million i guess...

| To integrate into the online market doesn't mean they make their own client, they could just make more satellites in the main pokerrooms to their WPT-Events-|

| First thing i thought after read this news was "only $9M?" Seems like everybody did. But we have to think in this enterprise as the owner of the rights to manage the business and not the business itself. It was the same thing as the company who have the rights of Euromillions Draw (european international lottery) sell the business. It wouldnt cost as much as a lottery prize, it would be much less, in fact (Euromillions prize is every week a minimum of €10.000.000 and can reach up to €120.000.000, more or less 170 milion dolars)|
