India's fastest growing online poker platform to organise Women's Day Tournament

India's fastest growing online poker platform to organise Women's Day Tournament

New Delhi, Mar 7 (UNI) 9Stacks, India's fastest growing poker platform is conducting a free entry 'Women's Day' Tournament on Sunday on the occasion of International Women's Day.

9Stacks expects to see an active participation of 100 women participating in the tournament and fighting out for the prizes out of which 9 Women participants will win Rs 1,000 each.

In order to keep out male users from participating, 9Stacks will do a physical verification call to check players. This would be a one-time call and once the woman participant has been tagged, she can participate in all women-only tournaments that 9Stacks would conduct.

Sudhir Kamath, Founder, 9Stacks says 'We have always had a view that many more women should be part of the Indian poker segment. In fact, our very first live sponsorship was for a team of nine women players at a Deltin Poker Tour live event in Goa. We followed that up with a number of women-only tournaments that we have conducted over the last two years.'

A number of women players were introduced to online poker via those events, and some of them soon became regulars at our other tournaments as well, and we hope their numbers will continue to rise, he said.

One can play the tournament from any corner of the world, via laptop or mobile.

'Is it a compulsion, is it a challenge, is it a distraction or is it all about the moolah? ... well, I really don’t know. All I can say is that I am enjoying myself playing tourneys or playing with friends or making new friends.The 9stacks website is very user friendly, and the team running the show welcome suggestions to make it more interactive,' says Radhika Mahaliangaiah, a regular woman player on 9stacks.

9stacks is an online poker platform where users can learn and play the game online and also earn money. It currently offers its online poker gaming services in 24 Indian states. Apart from poker, it also offers fantasy league contests under the brand name Faboom.

The platform currently has more than 3.25 lakh users across India and has witnessed 350 per cent increase in userbase in 2019. The platform currently offers Texas and Omaha variants of poker that engage both experienced players and learners.
