WPFH’s CelebrityWorld.com Beats PartyPoker, FullTiltPoker, BoDog and Poker Stars in Every User Relevant Visitor Data Category by Over 1,000% or More in First 30 Days

LOS ANGELES, CA–(Jun 10, 2016) –   World Poker Fund Holdings, Inc.   (OTC PINK: WPFH), a leading developer and operator of online and event-based social gaming platforms and brands, today announced its initial user data and revenue figures for online social gaming platform and online casino CelebrityWorld.com in its first 30 days in beta. Each visitor and player has spent an average of 43 minutes on CelebrityWorld.com, engaging a staggering 23 pages per session, generating a total of 188,000+ page views from approx. 2,500 initial users. All CelebrityWorld.com users and site traffic has been 100% organic with no marketing, sponsorships, or advertising of any sort. Unexpectedly, CelebrityWorld.com produced revenues surpassing $13,000 USD since the May 1st beta launch from social mingling upgrades and “free-play” games converting to premium add-ons and “re-ups” of chips (coins) after the free incentives were played. The milestone puts WPFH approximately 3 months ahead of its operational, development and marketing forecasts.

CelebrityWorld is engineered to foster a higher level of emotional investment and subsequently deeper monetization avenues, providing an all over richer experience than its traditional gaming competitors. As a result CelebrityWorld is generating higher user engagement levels on first time players and even higher levels on returning players, due to the real-time stickiness of the social gaming and celebrity content. Meanwhile, other online poker and casino sites do not have the same capacity for growth due to limited content and entertainment options. A more fully cultivated online experience is currently in higher demand than ever by youths, millennials (18-34) and the 40-65 year old demographics. Traditional online Poker, casino and social gaming sites lack a virtual immersive experience by only providing a single game or gaming offer, versus CelebrityWorld’s gaming + entertainment + virtual interaction + personal access to your favorite celebrities — the biggest differentiating factor.

Platform Numbers: CelebrityWorld.com Visitor Data, May 2016
NEW Players / Users: 2,560 (registered, guests, players)

Our patented platform(s) is being prepared for a full-scale launch this summer, but I can’t tell you how much fun and insightful it’s been to work with our WPFH and “Celebrity World” celebrity ambassadors so far. We’ve spent the last 9 months defining what they feel would resonate with their fans, and the initial 30 day results of the Beta launch tells us that we hit the nail on the head.”

WPFH’s publicist, spokesperson and President of 1-800-PublicRelations (“1800pr”) Matthew Bird also commented, “Our PR and communication strategy coupled with our celebrity brand ambassadors and experiential gaming environment puts CelebrityWorld.com into a league of its own. We are simply providing a better playing and social gaming experience than anyone else and data speaks for itself — ours users and players spend more time on CelebrityWorld than other popular online gaming sites. I can’t thank Soulja Boy, Jamie Gold, Tracy McGrady and the amazing celebrity owners we have for creating the runway for us to launch CelebrityWorld.com on. That said, the best is still yet to come. We have some BIG things coming that should make for some interesting gossip and chatter!”

TWEET SENT ON MAY 1ST ON $400 MILLION CONTRACT


LOS ANGELES, CA ( May 20, 2016)    Soulja Boy   (DeAndre Way), the prolific social media influencer and American rapper, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur announced today the details of his 5-year $400M endorsement deal ( tweeted on May 1st 2016)   is with publicly traded   World Poker Fund Holdings   (OTC PINK: WPFH), a leading developer and operator of online and event-based social gaming platforms and brands.

The decision for Soulja Boy to engage with WPFH comes on the heels of the recent success of Nas, Sean “Diddy” Combs and 50 Cent’s investment and ambassador brand deals with technology and consumer products like Ciroc and Vitamin Water. However, unlike Nas, Diddy and 50 Cent, Soulja Boy is arguably the world’s youngest music mogul to complete a deal of this magnitude. At 25, he is one of most influential urban entertainers and artist on social media today, boasting a social media following of over 15 million. Soulja Boy will mobilize his network to promote World Poker Fund’s online gaming assets such as   CelebrityWorld.com   and its soon-to-launch “ in-flight gaming ” platform which aims to service the 3 billion plus global travelers across multiple airlines worldwide.

Soulja Boy, “I invest in things I understand. I enjoy music, and of course gaming. Being an influencer is a form of currency. Having portfolio diversification is critical if you want to be an effective brand ambassador. With regards to World Poker Fund, I believe in its strategy, its team, the vision, and management’s ability to target its financial goals.”

Matthew Bird, President of   1-800-PublicRelations   and spokesperson and publicist for World Poker Fund Holdings “WPFH,” commented, “The world of marketing is changing, today’s biggest influencers are not brands, but individuals who create content that drive loyalty and brand sentiment. We no longer are fed content from major news networks — we seek it out and consume it by individual influencers that enrich our lifestyles. Soulja Boy represents the best of the best and we are already seeing the impact from his presence.”

About Soulja Boy

  (born July 28, 1990), known professionally as   Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em, or simply   Soulja Boy, is an American rapper, record producer, actor, and entrepreneur.

Recent M&A Deal Projected to Be Worth $1 Billion in Annual Revenues

LOS ANGELES, CA (May 10, 2016)     World Poker Fund Holdings, Inc.   (OTC PINK: WPFH), a leading developer and operator of online and event-based social gaming platforms and brands, announces today that the 49% stake in Universal Entertainment Group (“UEG”) contracts and assets to be acquired, as previously announced, are projected to generate approximately $143 million in annual in-flight gaming and online revenues for WPFH from the initial offerings, based on accepted industry analysis as well as UEG and Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma projections.

Jamie Gold WSOP Champion and WPFH Spokesperson added, “WPFH is moving at light speed in terms of partnerships and acquisitions of ‎game changing technology and brands. This latest move gives us the opportunity to be the first and only real money gaming source in the sky and further. I’m truly excited to be a part of it all.”

The Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma PokerTribe.com/.gov gaming portal is set to launch in the next 90 days and initially will offer live cash-casino, cash-bingo and cash-poker games online to international (non-U.S.) players. In-flight cash gaming is then set to launch in Q1 2017 on selected international airline flights, cruises and other forms of transportation. The in-flight international gaming offerings will be done through InSkyCasino.com and will be offered once an international flight in excess of two hours reaches cruising altitude. Eligible passengers (ages 21 and up) will be given the opportunity to receive complimentary Wi-Fi access for the duration of the flight for a minimum deposit of $25 into their online, real-money play, casino account offered by InSkyCasino.com, which will be operated by PokerTribe.com/.gov and software/support provided by UEG, through its contractual arrangement with the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma. Passengers on these flights will be able to play casino games (not just poker) through their personal devices, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, or using the inflight entertainment system at their seat.

UEG spokesperson Christina Fallin (daughter of Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin) commented: “We are proud to be working with World Poker Fund and The Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma on this project. It is an extraordinary time for the State of Oklahoma. The recent federal court ruling granting the Iowa Tribe the unique gaming licenses will generate significant revenue potential that will directly benefit the people of Oklahoma through tax revenues and The Iowa Tribe and its partners. It’s a win-win all around.”

International, in-flight cash gaming represents an extraordinary market opportunity. This market is currently not served at all and is not included in the industry estimated $35.5 billion in annual revenues from on-line cash gaming world-wide. Over 3.5 billion passengers are expected to fly in 2016 and more than 3 billion of those are projected to be non-U.S. passengers. WPFH and its market partners through PokerTribe.com/.gov, initially will have access to 180 million of those international passengers through a single in-flight Wi-Fi provider, which controls the entertainment content on its partner airlines. UEG estimates that, even if only 20% of eligible passengers on those flights who have Wi-Fi access, choose to gamble in flight, revenues of over $808 million US would be generated annually, of which a projected $143 million in gross revenues would result to WPFH from the assets and contracts to be acquired by it from UEG. WPFH management believes that the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma gaming web site, managed through their contractual vendor relationship with UEG, can successfully penetrate this market and expand to other international passengers and carriers after the first offering through the initial in-flight Wi-Fi provider. This is a unique and untapped market.

CelebrityWorld.com will be “opening its doors” on April 15th for beta gamers and hosting its grand opening on May 1st. The new immersive social gaming experience will incorporate the most popular online casino games with the exciting action of playing side-by-side with your favorite celebrities.

Soulja Boy commented, “This is going to be the biggest thing since online gaming started. We have assembled some of the world’s top social influencers, celebrities, and gamers to create the sickest and most exciting online casino gaming experience!”

Here’s how it works:
Celebrity World offers all your favorite casino games and entertainment that you would find in Las Vegas, here are just a few to start:   Poker, Video Poker, Slots, Sports Betting, Bingo, Fringo, Solitaire. And social areas and venues such as   restaurants, night clubs   to meet people,   retail stores   for   shopping, private parties   and even   romantic encounters   can be possible in CelebrityWorld.com

The Games
Blackjack   — Black Tie Blackjack tables, Hula style Blackjack tables, or even a skill-game version called pixie panic. All tables are multiplayer but if you prefer you can chose to play heads-up with the dealer.

Poker   — Our poker room host is the WSOP Main Event Champion Jamie Gold. Players will be able to play a No limit hold’em with a variety of limits. Weather you are new to the game or a seasoned veteran, everyone can learn something new from a Poker Champion. Jamie will be provide free tips and even training sessions to help players know when to hold’em and when to fold’em.

Video Poker   — If you enjoy video poker instead of playing against others, we have a variety of video poker games you can play. Even while playing video poker, you can see a list of other players that are playing at the same time. Get to know someone or buy them a drink, if you do, everyone that is playing at the same game gets a drink too!!
Related Quotes

Slots   — Dozens of slots games to choose from. We have tournaments and regular play. You can pick your limits and chat with you friends that are playing the same game. New games are released all the time and VIP members get exclusive play before the games are opened up to everyone.

Sports Betting   — A complete Sportsbook with odds on games from NBA to Premier League Soccer. You can also bet on Pop Culture events when they arise, like the Oscars or the Grammy Music Awards.

Daily Fantasy Sports   — The game replicates traditional DFS mechanics including individual tournaments, 50-50 contests and high-low betting options. It has gone live with contests based around the National Basketball Association (NBA), allowing players to select a full team based on a salary cap, winning points based on the players’ performance. Great fun for the experienced basketball fan or it’s a great way to get to learn the game and key players.

5-card Draft   — A great multiplayer football draft game where you put together a team based on past season statistics of real players. Another great way to learn the game or test your experience against the best.

Bingo   — A fun multi-player game with a virtual dauber. You can play multiple cards at once and see if you can get BINGO before the other competitors.

Fringo   — Fringo is a combination of Bingo with Fruit instead of numbers. You are playing against other players for the top prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. This is a very fast and addicting game where many players work their way through the various limits and earn achievement bonuses. There are also special games for each of the major calendar holidays.

Solitaire   — The classic version of the game that you play by yourself, but not alone, as other players are always visible on the side-bar. Earn points and get on the leaderboard. There is also a version that has a bit of a spin to it. Try them both and see which one gets you more coins.

Gaming Experience Snap-Shot   — When you go to the casino lobby you have your choice of games. A couple things to remember 1) When you have charms, your luck is better and you will win more, so be sure to buy some or go to charm parties. 2) When you are playing a game and a drink or charm just shows up, that means that someone bought drinks or charms for everyone playing that game or at the table. In a friendly game if you buy one drink the whole table gets a round. 3) There is a leaderboard for each game which tracks who has won the most today or for the week. This can be game-wide or you can just track your friends.

Entertainment
Celebrity World never sleeps…   There are parties going on 24/7 and all you have to do is go to the parties tab and it lists them out. You decide what theme you’d like to go to and what types of charms you want to get as gifts for attending. The parties are mini-mixers that really kick-off once 25 people are in the room. Enjoy dancing and meeting people while charms are gifted and given out. It takes less than 30 seconds to set-up your own party which shows on the party board. You can invite your friends or just meet new people. Either way, you always get a bonus for being the host.

Club Scene   — The biggest attraction in this section is the Fantasy Suites. You get to move up floors in the hotel as you earn more coins through the game. You can throw parties or hang out with friends in your suite. You can also see the Celebrity suites and work your way up to “Celebrity Status.”

Many of the parties are held at a private suite but you can also use the club venues. Poolside parties with music playing or go to the dance club where you can meet new people. There is also a VIP lounge and a Love Hotel for couples. Remember to dress appropriately and swimsuits are required at the pool. Be sure to do a cannonball off the diving board, the sunbathers love it.

Shopping   — For men and women the shopping is phenomenal. Most items are only on the shelf for a limited time and then they are gone. Several of the celebrities have some articles from their own clothing line in the shop. Show your love by wearing your favorite celebrity’s gear to intermix with your own style. We will have fashion shows for the ladies and there is a section on everyone’s profile where they can put clothes on a wish list. Many members enjoy getting their friends new outfits that come out or something special for a night out. The store is organized where you can go directly to the pool section or the black tie. There is a special section for VIP members where they will have exclusive clothing that can really make a statement.

1-800-PublicRelations, Inc.
