World Poker Tournament India 2019 coming to Goa from 15th to 21st October

WPT India returns to Goa for the third time! An extravaganza awaits you from October 15 to 21 at Deltin Royale Casino Goa. Last season attracted 697 entries – a roaring Asian tour record! Season 18 is going to get super grander. Buy-In: INR 55K.

The 2019 season of World Poker Tour (WPT) India is coming to Goa from 15th to 21st October at Deltin Royale, the largest floating casino in the state.

WPT India had its premier edition in November 2017 at the same venue over River Mandovi in Panjim. The WPT Deepstacks Series was hosted and the season powered by Adda52, its official Indian partner.

The poker tour featured more than 1500 entries across 8 events with 527 entries from WPT India Main Event and witnessed Vikash Mantri, the champion, take home a whopping INR 60,30,000 for his unbelievable victory.

In 2018, the second season was held between 13th and 19th November in Goa yet again. This poker event made groundbreaking records of over 1800 entries across 8 live tournaments. The event witnessed Nikunj Jhunjhunwala, the high-stakes cash game player, smashing the record 697-entry field and Sahil Mahboobani going home with INR 66.35 Lac!

Season three awaits the punters! After all, money won is sweeter than money earned, and sweetest when it’s a game of poker.
