Baadshah Gaming Comes In A Partnership With The Asian Poker Tour

In a bid to expose the ever-growing poker community in India to more international tournaments, the Casino Pride group backed online poker site Baadshah Gaming, has joined hands with the Philippines-based Asian Poker Tour (APT). Baadshah Gaming will conduct online satellites giving Indian poker enthusiasts the opportunity to win tournament packages to various upcoming APT events in the Asia-Pacific region. 

The Asian Poker Tour is the biggest and most-coveted poker tour in Asia. Since its inception in 2008, APT has grown by leaps and bounds, adding multiple destinations in its yearly tournament roster. With the aim of popularizing poker as a poker sport across the Asia Pacific region, APT has held events in Macau, Philippines, South Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Australia even taking the game to far-flung tiny French colony of New Caledonia. To date, the APT has staged more than 80 major events and numerous smaller tournaments mainly in the Asia-Pacific Region. APT events combined have generated over USD 30 million in prize money, all awarded to players.

Baadshah Gaming which began operations in March 2017 is an online portal that offers poker and other games of skill. In June 2017, Goa's Casino Pride group bought a stake in Oceanking Software Solutions LLP, the company that owns and operates the Baadshah Gaming brand. As part of the deal, the start-up has gained access to run and operate the 'Baadshah Gaming Live' property on board the Casino Pride vessel in Panjim, Goa. With this, they are able to host a variety of live gaming tournaments, bringing poker players from all over the country to show-off their poker skills. 

Baadshah Gaming had held its own live tournament series at its live property in Goa in December 2017 and April 2018 which was very well received by the Indian poker community. The two Baadshah Gaming Live Tournaments paid out over 1.7 crores in prize money with tournament buy-ins as low as Rs. 10000.
