The Diwali series will include a Platinum Pass, as India hosts its first ever local poker series.
National, October 26, 2018: Diwali Rush is the first ever local series to be held in India through PokerStars.in and the prize of a Platinum Pass for the winner of the special mega-freeroll seems quite fitting as it could be the first step on the pathway to untold wealth and prosperity for one lucky player in the Series in January 2019 at the PSPC. To qualify for the opportunity of a lifetime, players must take part in three events within the series.
This is the perfect time for someone to figuratively and literally put their name in lights if they gain their ticket to the PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold’em (PSPC) Championship in the Bahamas and a place in poker history. The winner will join Chandigarh-local Sumit Sapra who won his Platinum Pass earlier this year at the APPT Korea tournament series.
Diwali Rush runs from October 28 – November 5 and the multi-table tournament has over ₹1.5 Crore GTD (₹1,50,00,000) over 34 events with a ₹30 Lacs GTD (₹30,00,000) Main Event on November 4. The Diwali Rush promotion includes over ₹32 Lacs in free prizes, Deposit Offers, Qualify for free freerolls, Second chance freerolls and a Platinum Pass freeroll.
The winner of the sought-after Platinum Pass will secure their place at the Atlantis Resort in Nassau. The Platinum Pass includes accommodation and expenses to put towards flights, expenses and the 22k IRN buy-in for the poker tournament.
The experienced poker player will link up with five other winners from the Global Poker League India, as five Platinum Passes will be given to the victorious team from the GPL bootcamp in September.
The GPL is giving India the chance to unearth the next poker star. Two of the teams from the league are being captained by PokerStars ambassadors, as Muskan Sethi and Aditya Agarwal lead the Delhi Diehards and Kolkata Creators respectively.
Ankur Dewani, CEO, Sachiko Gaming Pvt. Ltd. said: “It’s brilliant to have our very own series on PokerStars.In and amazing that one person will be awarded a Platinum Pass to mark a special and fitting event on our calendar.”
