The prizes at the IOPC have also seen an exponential rise over time. In January 2019, the IOPC had boasted of ₹8.5 Crores in guaranteed prizes. In July, the same year, the guarantee was hiked to ₹11 Crores. The 2020 January edition offered more than ₹16 Crores in prize pool guarantees. The upcoming IOPC will be the biggest yet, with ₹25 Crores in prize pool guarantees!

PokerGuru caught up with the co-founder of Spartan Poker, Sameer Rattonsey, who elaborating about how the IOPC has developed over the years said, “It’s been an incredible journey since 2012 when we started the IOPC as a monthly freeroll series which awarded tickets to the IPC Live event in Goa. From there to now, where a whopping ₹25 Crores in guaranteed prizes is on offer, is a clear indicator of the growth of Indian poker. The series has always been about providing top value and as in the past, we expect this IOPC as well, to surpass its guarantee and continue to wear the mantle of India’s biggest online poker championship.”

So, this July, get ready for the BIGGEST online poker bonanza and keep following PokerGuru for more updates on the upcoming IOPC!
