The Asian Poker Tour (APT) has teamed up with Indian online poker site, Baadshah Gaming, in a deal that will see the popular site become the APT’s exclusive partner in India.
Baadshah Gaming will provide Indian players the opportunity to qualify for APT events via live and online packages.
“The goal of the partnership is to increase the presence of the Indian players at each and every APT event and we believe with Baadshah Gaming having the capabilities of running both online and land based qualifiers this will happen,” said APT General Manager Lloyd Fontillas.
In addition to its online platform, Baadshah Gaming runs and operates “Baadshah Gaming Live” onboard Goan cruise ship Casino Pride
“In line with our aim to promote poker as a game of skill in India, we are excited to team up with the prestigious Asian Poker Tour,” said Baadshah Gaming co-founder, Madhav Gupta.
“We believe that this partnership will benefit the Indian poker community in multiple ways, the best of which is that it will give both amateurs and professionals alike the opportunity to test their skills against the very best poker players in the Asian circuit.”
The Asian Poker Tour is currently hosting the APT Vietnam Ho Chi Minh Championships and has coming events in Korea, the Philippines and two in Macau scheduled for the remainder of 2018.
