Adda52 – WPT Partnership Continues
Adda52 first tied up with the WPT back in 2016. That tie-up has paved the way for Indian players to be allowed to participate in WPT events, with the site exclusively hosting satellites and online qualifiers for selected WPT tournaments. In November 2017, the WPTDeepStacks series debuted in India with the luxurious Deltin Royale playing host to the action.
In November 2020, Adda52 was selected by the WPT as its official partner for the first-ever WPT Online India, a massive series which featured an Rs 2.5 crore guaranteed Main Event. The partnership has continued this year for what is expected to be another successful online series, providing huge opportunities for Indian players. This year, WPT and Adda52 have moved up the ante with even bigger prizes on offer.
Angelica Hael, WPT VP of global tour management, said they’re thrilled to be working with Adda52 once again as India’s online poker market continues to grow.
Shivanandan Pare, CEO of Adda52’s parent company Gaussian Networks, is equally delighted with their ongoing partnership with the WPT as the WPT Online edition allows Indian players to enter the global stage.
