During 7 days from December 10th to December 17th, 35 events will be played in the PokerBaazi Premier League (PPL) Winter'18. This year, the most popular Indian tournament, The MoneyMaker will fuse with the PPL and will have a GTD prize of 1 Cr ($140kUSD) and a ₹11,000 buy-in. Lots of other promotions were also announced to complete the PPL Winter'18 party:
PPL deposit bonuses
To celebrate the PPL this year, PokerBaazi also announced deposit bonuses giving away free tickets to PPL events, including The MoneyMaker for making a deposit of ₹35,000 (three times the buy-in of the tournament).
The TOP-25 players of the PPL will share a prize pool of 35 Lakhs split into two leaderboards (one yearly PPL leaderboard and one just for the Winter event). The winner of the yearly PPL leaderboard will get a Harley-Davidson as a price!
Every day at PokerBaazi satellites (with about 3 Crore in GTD prizes) will be running for the main events of the PPL Winter'18 with buy-ins from ₹44.
PokerStars Winter Series
37 tournaments will be played at PokerStars India from December 16th to December 24th (yes, a Christmas Eve event is included!) with a total prize pool of ₹1.6 Crore. The Main Event will be played on December 23rd at 19:00 (IST) with a ₹7,700 buy-in and a GTD prize of ₹3,500,000.
The Christmas Eve tournament will award a package for the EPT Sochi Main Event.
To celebrate the Winter Series, PokerStars.IN announced several promotions:
- Over ₹2,000,000 in tournament tickets will be awarded in freeroll tournaments.
- Free tournament tickets to the Main Event for making a deposit of ₹30,000.
- A private leaderboard awarding gadgets for the players who play more tournaments of the series.
If we combine all the tournament series announced by Indian poker rooms, over 10 Crore ($1,3MUSD) will be awarded in GTD prizes. Although compared with monster promotions like the partypoker MILLIONS it seems a bit low, but definitely, a clear sign of market development because those promotions are focused on one single country.
In the next few days, we will share more information about the best Indian poker rooms to play, the most convenient deposit and withdrawals methods and all the necessary to comfortably play online poker from India.
