It’s been an intense year for the Indian poker operators and the players, seeing online poker continue a steady and upward climb. Offering a quality gaming experience amid the Indian poker boom is PokerDangal, the poker arm of Dangal Games. The brand has dished out attractive tournaments and cash game offers frequently. Having turned five only last month, PokerDangal has unveiled a special Diwali Poker Festival reeling in the spirit of the festival season.
We shall be celebrating Diwali in October-end, but PokerDangal’s Diwali Poker Festival will run through the festive celebrities of the ongoing Navratris, Dusshera, Diwali, and beyond, promising a very enticing ₹2 Crores across three well-tailored promotions.
Sounding off the firecrackers will be The Ace Race 2.0 (October 3 – November 2) – the biggest hand-based race to be hosted on PokerDangal! Having debuted as part of the Dangal Birthday Bash last month, the month-long promotion is back for its second run, and once again, it features a prize pool guarantee of ₹20 Lakhs. Four weekly leaderboard races form part of The Ace Race 2.0, each promising ₹5 Lakhs in prizes spread across three stakes, Bronze (₹1/₹2 to ₹3/₹6); Silver (₹5/₹10 to ₹10/₹20) and Gold (₹25/₹50 to ₹50/₹100).
Alongside, MTT players can gear up for another edition of the ₹50 Lakhs GTD Dangal Diwali Series that comes packed with MTTs guaranteeing ₹47 Lakhs and a ₹3 Lakhs leaderboard race.
The series’ star attraction will undoubtedly be the ₹20 Lakhs GTD Dangal Diwali Series Main Event (October 12 – October 16) that features additional starting flights, so six flights in all, allowing players to enter for just ₹1,650.
PokerDangal makes it convenient for you to compete in the Dangal Diwali Series – check out the deposit codes that offer free tickets to different events on making specified deposits!
The site also offers up to 90% Rakeback – amounting to rewards up to ₹1.30 Crores as part of its Dangal Diwali Rewards (October 5 – November 6) promotion.
Aptly designed to match the festive fervor, the Diwali Poker Festival comes hot on the heels of a grand ₹1.50 Crores GTD Dangal Birthday Bash in September. As the operator turned five last month, the site hosted its first-ever ₹60 Lakhs GTD The Big Show (September 21 – 25), culminating with Kashish Singh Rathore emerging champion for a site-best ₹10.20 Lakhs.
