Pokerbaazi acquires Phoenix poker room

Online poker website Pokerbaazi has announced the acquisition of Phoenix poker room in Bengaluru and rebranded it ‘PokerBaazi LIVE’.

“Phoenix Poker, which began operations three years ago and is among the most popular poker rooms in Bengaluru and PokerBaazi, have collaborated to offer a seamless gaming experience to poker players across both the platforms,” said the Indian poker platform in a press release.

“With this significant partnership, we have enhanced our user base, giving players a secure and fair environment where they can learn and have fun” commented Navkiran Singh, CEO of Pokerbaazi.

It may be noted that more than half a dozen poker rooms are operational in Bengaluru as the Karnataka High Court has granted legal protection to poker by virtue of an order in favour of Indian Poker Association in 2013, according to Glaws.

Pokerbaazi has captured a significant market share in an increasingly competitive online poker market.
