Play the Poker Dangal Step Challenge

Posted On 13 Jun, 2018 0

It’s been 12 days since the Step Challenge has been live on PokerDangal and many players have already completed Step 3 and Step 4 and are just 2 steps away from the dream ticket to Manila. Karan Gandhi and Varun Mahna, PokerDangal's co-founders, gave us a low down of the past 2 weeks and mentioned that the Step Challenge is designed to reward every player who plays on cash tables irrespective of the stakes. A player has to collect as many Dangal Points in the 1-month period to complete the various steps and be eligible for the rewards.

Dangal Points are loyalty points on PD which is calculated based on the amount wagered in each hand, number of players actively playing in the hand and the stake of the table. How the points are calculated at PD is explained here.

Based on the Dangal points gathered by the player, the steps are completed, and prizes are awarded (as mentioned in the table below):
