Very recently, the company has also announced that they have gone on to acquire XLN Media’s flagship online gaming business, PokerMet, a poker website with over 10,000 registered users and 2,000 depositing players. The monetary value of the deal is undisclosed at the moment. Apart from acquiring all assets of PokerMet, PokerDangal is also going to settle all player dues of PokerMet.

As per founders Varun Mahna and Varun Puri, the acquisition is a statement of intent from the Dangal team. They consider this acquisition as a stepping stone for PokerDangal to establish itself as a leading site in the Indian online Poker domain. They further stated that the team endeavours to continually grow the online poker community.
They have promised that all legit payments of PokerMet players which has been stuck/pending would be taken care of by PokerDangal and all due settlements will be made in a 45-day time period.
