Europe’s biggest poker room, King’s Casino, and India’s fastest growing online poker site, PokerHigh, are joining forces to send an Indian player to the PartyPoker Festival Main Event, with a guaranteed prize pool of €1 million.

The online satellite will be hosted exclusively on the PokerHigh site on Sunday, May 7, at 10pm local time. The winner of the satellite will be awarded €3,000 prize package to play the PartyPoker Festival Main Event, which will take place on June 1-6 at King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic.

Situated roughly two hours’ drive from Prague and Munich, the casino is Europe’s biggest poker room, with 160 poker tables.

The PokerHigh satellite prize package includes a €1,100 buy-in to the PartyPoker Festival Main Event, international travel airfare, five nights at the King’s Hotel and meals, as well as visa and all transfers within India and Czech Republic.

PokerHigh is India’s fastest growing and 100% legal online poker site. It was among the first few sites to be issued a licence for online poker under the ‘Nagaland Prohibition of Gambling and Promotion and Regulation of Online Games of Skill Act 2016’.

“This development has definitely kicked off a good trajectory for PokerHigh,” the site’s co-founder and managing director, Mithun Rebello, told TotallyGaming.com.

“For anyone in India with internet access, PokerHigh instantly lets you play poker, anytime, anywhere and on any device. We have designed our daily freerolls, tournaments and cash leaderboards with this vision in mind. We want to make playing poker easy and enjoyable for all Indians.”

Rebello added: “The response and support from the community has been overwhelming, with a lot of compliments on our software, which is deemed by the community as one of the best in India. We are constantly working to come up with new features to keep India entertained with poker.”

​PokerHigh Pro, Clawin Dsouza, said: “Currently, there are close to 10,000 professional poker players in India, and the numbers are projected to grow over the next five years.

“India also has a history of enjoying card games culturally, and with increasing awareness about poker as a skill game, the number of recreational players will only increase in the coming years.”

Totally Gaming says: Online satellite tournaments are a great way of generating publicity and interest in main events, and with poker enjoying a period of solid growth in India, we can expect more partnerships between land-based and online operators to be announced over the coming months.
