World Mastercard with only $1,000 limit?

Has anyone else gotten a World Mastercard with such a low limit? My citi double cash turned our to be a world mastercard... I have not had a chance to call Citi due to work yet but my card is clearly says world on it like the other world Mastercard I saw. I scratched my head as to why they gave me a world with such a low limit, I know my scores are improving and my world Mastercard for capitol one is under review which I expected to aquire that one first but this just reallt intrigues me. Do any other double cash holders have a world version?
I started at a 486 on 2/18/2013, I broke 700's by mid 2015 before falling again to under the 600's. Slowly climbing! Started at $200 on 12/1/2014 I now have over $35.000 in Credit Smiley Happy

WHAT??? A ELITE?? that's crazy. I really thought there was a minium credit line of at least $3,000

A common experience when the DC was launched (and maybe still) is that everyone, or most, who applied, got the World version, those that PCd, even from a World MC, didn't.     There are also claims that the World version isn't a "real" world (missing NPSL for example) but as someone who PCd, I don't know that for a fact.   (Citi also told me that the DC isn't available in World, which is obviously untrue in the sense that people have the card with World on!)

Don't have that specific card but have a Citi Diamond Preferred.  They started me out with a 3k limit.  Not much & I'm pretty sure you need to wait at least 6 months to ask for a CL. I do know the feeling.  Still have a crappy 2k with Cap One QS & have been with them over 10 yrs!

Congrats on the DC. Citi got ready for your future big CLIs ?? ...no serious now  I have not seen this before but nowadays anything is possible as in the I believe Cap1 WEMC example with 600$ limit

Not a "real" World MC? Who would spout such nonsense?

When did you do that?   I kept the CL and APR but went to the non-World version from a World TYP
