This is Not a Gambling Website
It is important to note that this website is not a gambling website. This is because gambling means that you will place your money at risk in order to play a casino game or any other form of games such as blackjack or poker in order to win cash. This is not what ClubWPT is about. The game played on the website does not involve any money as players will play them for free. What players pay for is a membership fee in order to be able to access more features and VIP discounts and offers and access to tournaments. Players who do not want to pay that fee will be able to register with a basic membership which does not cost a dime. Therefore, it is not a gambling website as players will pay a fee and they will play for fun.
As for the sweepstakes, ClubWPT adheres and abides by the sweepstakes rules. It is also offered in places where these sweepstakes are legal. This is why players who live in states or countries where sweepstakes is not legal, they will be excluded and they will not be eligible to join them.
This is why the eligibility of joining the sweepstakes is based on the territory and the state law in which the player resides. So if you live in a state or a country that does not allow sweepstakes, then you will be ineligible to participate in the tournaments but you will still be able to view the episodes of ClubWPT, poker articles, educational videos and more.
The eligible countries include The United Kingdom, Australia, France and Canada. As for the United States, there are thirty-six states, districts and territories where sweepstakes are legal. They include New Jersey, Maine, Iowa, Kansas, Florida and D.C
