PokerDangal is changing the way we perceive online poker!

Posted On 23 Mar, 2020 0

Poker has been on the rise in India since a couple of years now. The community as a whole has grown multi-fold and today, everyone at least has an idea about what the game is. Earlier, everyone looked at it as 'gambling' but today, people are realizing the amount of skill that it takes to be successful in this mind sport.

A lot of the credit for bringing on this growth in the industry should go to the online poker websites, because they've found ways to increase the size of the community even though there are restrictions on live poker in India. One such website is PokerDangal, founded over 2 years ago and scaling massive heights in their short existence so far.

If you like small stakes tables or if you prefer the nosebleed high-stakes games, PokerDangal has good cash game action across stakes, starting from 1/2 and 2/4 all the way to 300/600; they have something for everyone. If you're not one to enjoy cash games, then there are plenty of tournament offerings as well. What we're trying to say is that there's something for everyone on this platform.

They've played their part in ensuring the number of active players in India keeps increasing. For starters, there's always some deposit bonuses and cash game promotions running for users. Using "WELCOME150" after signing up will ensure you get plenty extra in locked bonus on your first deposit up to a maximum bonus of INR 5,000. At the same time, "REFILL20" gives you a 20% bonus on all subsequent deposits to your account, up to a max bonus of INR 1,000.

If you're not one to make regular deposits, the platform hosts plenty of freerolls and satellites, where you can win tickets to bigger tournaments each week. On Saturday, they host an INR 25k Depositor's Freeroll while on Sundays, their PLO Highroller boasts a massive guarantee of INR 5 Lakh to end each week.

The Dangal Points Leaderboard also makes sure you are rewarded for consistency on PokerDangal, which means there's plenty of motivation for all to play. Every wondered what it's like to play at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) in Las Vegas, but never had the bankroll to make it there? Well, PokerDangal has often sent out its best players to play in the Sin City, all expenses paid!

Talking about the growth of the platform, it was late in 2018 that they acquired PokerMet to make sweeter their first birthday celebrations and increase their userbase. Very recently, they went on to announce themselves on a bigger stage, entering the Poker Sports League (PSL) as co-owners of the Kolkata Kings franchise team for the upcoming third season.

Gutshot reached out to Karan Gandhi, PokerDangal Co-Founder to know about this growth and their future plans.
