1,000,000,000 – yes, that’s nine zeroes and two more than the number of years it took PokerBaazi, India’s most trusted online poker site, to deal 1 Billion hands on its platform. The homegrown site dealt its first hand in October 2014 and has celebrated every major milestone since by treating the players, or “Baazigars,” with unmatched promotions!

A BIG milestone like 1 Billion hands deserves something extraordinary, and PokerBaazi has pulled out all the stops to stand up to the challenge. Last week, the brand teased the #BaaziBillions campaign by dropping a strong hint on social media. The poker community has been rife with anticipation since, especially with the immensely popular National Poker Series underway on the site.

10 Crores GTD Cash Royale

The mother of all cash game promotions, Cash Royale, is India’s biggest cash game promotion to date. Don’t just take our word for it. Do ₹10 Crores in guaranteed leaderboard prizes sound convincing enough?

Cash Royale caters to the cash game players from micro to high-stakes across both NLHE and PLO game formats. The 60-day-long promotion starts on March 25 will give players a chance to win from over ₹16.60 Lakhs in cash prizes daily throughout its run.

There are seven leaderboard sprints in the Micro, Mid, and Low Stakes categories and four six-hour leaderboard sprints in the High-Stakes.

Let’s take a look at the NLHE and PLO leaderboards and their timings:

The MoneyMaker has a cherished legacy as India’s first-ever ₹1 Crore GTD tournament. The MoneyMaker’s unique ‘1 flight, ₹1 Crore GTD’ proposition continues to be the best in the industry, making it one of the most sought-after titles among MTT regs.

In the last 4.5 years since The MoneyMaker made its debut run, 13 players have won the prestigious title. However, no player has won The MoneyMaker more than once so far. The past The MoneyMaker champions include Anujkumar Kodam (MoneyMaker 1.0), Devesh Thapar (MoneyMaker 2.0), Priyadarshi Rajnish (MoneyMaker 3.0), Guruprasad Gupta (MoneyMaker 4.0), Varun Gupta (MoneyMaker 5.0), Rohit Begwani (MoneyMaker 6.0), Nikhil Sayilen (MoneyMaker 7.0), Nitish Gupta (MoneyMaker 8.0), Romit Advani (MoneyMaker 9.0), Sandeep Singh (MoneyMaker 10), Jai Saha (MoneyMaker 11), Banmanlang Lyndem (MoneyMaker 12), and most recently Shashank Mehrotra (MoneyMaker 13) – all of them winning the coveted golden The MoneyMaker bracelet.

The EndBoss Legacy

India’s biggest online tournament to date, ₹5 Crores GTD EndBoss, has made two successful runs on PokerBaazi already, setting records each time. The EndBoss made its inaugural run in April 2020, where Abhishek Maheshwari converted a ₹1K satellite buy-in into a life-changing ₹1 Crore payday!

EndBoss 2021 saw Ishaan Chugh trouncing a 4,816-player field, and he cut a three-way deal with Dhiraj Lakhotia and Divanshu Khurana to grab the lion’s share of the prize money, a career-defining ₹71.48 Lakhs.
