With PokerBaazi.com completing a Billion Hands in April, we are continuously looking to up the ante with larger tournaments, IPs, and more opportunities for Indian players. The extension of our exclusive India partnership with the Asian Poker Tour only furthers our commitment in this direction. We are looking forward to the partnership and strongly believe that this is another important step in our vision of creating a seamless Poker ecosystem in India.”
Asian Poker Tour is one of Asia’s leading tournaments which announced the first-ever exclusive online series for Indian players, in 2020, in partnership with Pokerbaazi.com. The third edition of the APT India Online series was hosted in 2022 between Jan 30, 2022 – February 6, 2022 and saw a massive turnout of over 56000 entries from across the country with a total prize pool of INR 7 Crore.
With physical poker tournaments steadily returning to action post the pandemic, APT plans to host its events in destinations like Vietnam and the Philippines. With more Indians being attendees at global Poker events, this exclusive partnership will also unlock opportunities for Indian players to compete online on PokerBaazi.com and win packages to the global APT tournaments.
