Electronic games manufacturer, Radica, announced this week that it has secured a deal to create a World Poker Tour branded hand held Hold’em poker game.

The game will be based on the tournament structure of the World Poker Tour, and the first games are scheduled for release in March 2005 to coincide with the launch of Season Three of the World Poker Tour on the Travel Channel.

"Every WPT fan dreams of making it to a World Poker Tour Final Table," said Pat Feely, Radica's CEO. "Now, with WPT handheld games from Radica, poker fans can hone their poker skills and enter the 'virtual' world of the WPT -- anytime they want.

“With more than 50 million poker players in the United States and more than 100 million players worldwide, poker continues to gain in popularity. More people play poker than play golf, billiards or tennis. The World Poker Tour has both helped create and benefited from the increase in popularity of poker, as the WPT television show has garnered huge ratings for the Travel Channel.”
