Global online poker giant PokerStars’ Indian client PokerStars India has always engaged its users with lucrative promotions. And cash game players now have an extra incentive to put in volume on the cash game tables on the site, with PokerStars India boosting the cash rewards for its Cash Game Leaderboards by 50%. The site will be rolling out ₹71,500 in prizes across all the daily leaderboards!

From October 11 to January 2, players can win from over 5 Lakhs in leaderboard prizes each week! While the NLH leaderboards guarantee ₹40,000 in daily prizes, the PLO leaderboards promise ₹31,500, a 100% increase from the previous PLO leaderboards offerings.

The site currently runs four cash game leaderboards (reset weekly) segregated according to stakes – Challenger, Apprentice, Masters, and Elite. All four leaderboards rank Hold’em and Omaha players separately.

 

How Do the Cash Game Leaderboards Work?

Players need to follow three simple steps to collect points on the daily leaderboards.

  • They need to opt-in once per stake at eligible tables to participate in that leaderboard tier for the duration of the promotion
  • Once opted in, the accumulated score of the first 300 hands they are dealt that day count towards the daily leaderboard
  • At the end of each day, the players with the most points win a share of the cash prizes. Players can opt-in to all eight leader boards to win from up to eight prizes each day
