Online pokers players in India are gearing up for the second India Online Poker Championship (IOPC) which will take place at TheSpartanPoker.com, one of the most popular online poker websites in India.
The online poker in India is steadily gaining ground thanks to multiple poker leagues and the entry of new iGaming operators such as PokerStars. There is a lot of competition to capture market share and TheSpartanPoker has been doing its part since 2014 to establish itself as one of India’s premier online poker brands.
Following the success of its very first IOPC, TheSpartanPoker is following up with a bigger and better second edition, where more than 7 crores in cash prizes are guaranteed to be given away.
On top of the already huge prize pools are special prizes which include a luxurious Jeep Compass SUV, Bajaj Dominar 400 motorbike, an Apple Watch, and a Bose Sound Bar.
