One of India’s fastest growing online poker sites, Pocket52, truly knows how to captivate its users. Known for being India’s first cryptographically secured Random Number Generator (RNG) online poker site, the brand has been coming up with exciting new tournaments and promotions lately. In its latest offering, Pocket52 has announced its biggest-ever poker series to date, the Grand Poker Sprint (GPS) series!
The month-long series will kick-off on July 1 and run until the end of the month, i.e., July 31. The series offers a colossal ₹3 Crores in guaranteed prizes, including ₹12 Lakhs in leaderboard prizes!
For the past two months, the online operator has been steadily spicing things up. Starting off by hosting 279 high-value tournaments guaranteeing over ₹1.2 Crores in prizes in May and then amping it up by lining up 368 online MTTs offering a massive ₹2.5 Crores in prize pool guarantees in June. Going by the upward trajectory that Pocket52 has taken, a ₹3 Crores GTD online series was always on the cards.
The first-ever GPS series will comprise 385 tournaments and will include a variety of different formats and a mix of daily and weekly featured tourneys. Buy-ins range from as low as ₹11, going up to ₹2,750.
While there are many thrilling events to look forward to, the headliner will undoubtedly be the site’s Sunday flagship Pocket Aces ₹10 Lakhs GTD that will take place every Sunday at 8 PM.
Other exciting events that are sure to draw sizable turnouts include the ₹5 Lakhs GTD Pocket Kings, the ₹3 Lakhs GTD Pocket Whopper, the ₹2.5 Lakhs GTD Gladiator and the ₹2 Lakhs GTD Pocket Queens.
