A short introduction to Indian online poker
In general, the online poker industry in India is still at the very beginning of its development. One of the main obstacles and the reason why many Indian poker players prefer to play at offshore rooms is the high tax rate on profits, which is 30% and is deducted at the source (the poker room). Although the Indian field is extremely soft, this is a major minus for the overall profitability of the game.
Spartan Poker is not the exception to this rule, but our players will receive a special deal when signing up with us.

Spartan Poker software
