At a time when online poker is booming in the country, poker sites need to stay on their feet to keep their users engaged. While hosting big guarantee tournaments and running massive cash game giveaways go a long way in attracting players, what sets the market leaders apart is a seamless playing experience.

In that vein, India’s most trusted online poker site, PokerBaazi, achieved a new milestone by rolling out an all-new and improved poker app last Monday. This is the over six-year-old poker operator’s most significant technical update to date, with the site promising world-class performance and functionality on the new app.

Alongside the launch of its new app, the poker operator also kick-started its biggest cash game festival yet – the Daily Cash Smash Extreme! Running for 10 days from May 8 – 17, PokerBaazi will be handing out ₹10 Lakhs daily across different leaderboard sprints, guaranteeing a whopping ₹1 Crore in total prizes.


Playing on the New App – Now a Seamless Experience

PokerBaazi is really taking the competition up! The Delhi-headquartered gaming company rolled out a new and improved app on Monday (May 3), its most significant software upgrade so far.

The last major upgrade by the site was rolled out in 2017. PokerBaazi had upgraded its platform to include features such as a New Tournament Lobby, 4 Colored Deck, Convenient Hand-History, Auto-activated TimeBank, Fold to Any Bet, Waiting List, Swipe Through Tables, Live Cards Preview on Mobile and the ability to Open up to Eight Cash Game Tables at a time.

PokerBaazi has been consistently pushing more features and updates on the platform for over three years, but this is the second major platform update since its launch. And it has come out with all the bells and whistles to make this upgrade stand out among the users, with a special emphasis on an enhanced playing experience for all users.

Launching the updated app, the Founder & CEO, Baazi Games Navkiran Singh, said, “The new PokerBaazi app is a dream come true product for us. Since 2014, our endeavour has been to be at par with the best poker apps in the world. We have been working towards building the new app for the last 18 months and would like to express our gratitude towards the entire team whose hard work and intelligence can be reflected in the finished product. Our technical team throughout has been working from home while building this app, and in the midway, we have also lost a dear colleague of ours, Chiranjeeb, to Covid. His contribution towards the new PokerBaazi app has been immense, and we would like to dedicate this app to him.”

“Additionally, the rollout of the app also opens a new window of opportunity for us as a brand. Through the new app, our aim is to highlight the seriousness attached to the game, which can only be achieved through skill and presence of mind,” Singh added.

Here’s a more detailed look at what has been added to the app and features the site has actively worked to improve upon.
