9Stacks, India’s fastest growing poker platform brings a One-Day Series Tournament leaderboard “AZAADI74 Series” on the occasion of our 74th Independence Day. 9stacks offers the best experience to its players through its intuitive User Interface and innovative promotions.

COVID-19 may have thrown life out of gear in 2020, but Indians with their unwavering spirit still have a way of celebrating what matters! And what could matter more than the day we became independent. With the AZAADI74 Series, the gamers get to play six tournaments on a single day, and if their overall performance puts them in the top 10 for the day then each of the players will win Rs. 7,400/- from the Azaadi74 leaderboard prize!  Also the player with highest leaderboard points will also get a 9stacks premium poker chipset.

The AZAADI 74 Series focuses on 4 things all poker players want AZAADI from-

i. Azaadi from unplayable structures! –
9stacks have designed the series as an exciting journey through various poker tournament formats and structures with maximum playability – with very high starting stacks (at least 25 blinds) even at the end of the late registration period.

ii. Azaadi from folks who fire unlimited bullets!
9stacks have tried to give each player a chance to try their true skills against the best players of each format, without bankroll becoming a big factor. Therefore, at most 2 Re-entries and no rebuys will be allowed in any tournament.
    

iii. Azaadi from having to play every tournament in a series to qualify for leaderboard prizes! 
The player can play any number of tournament/s as per his/her choice and time availability. Only the best 4 results are taken into account while calculating leaderboard prizes!
    

 iv. Azaadi from multi day commitment to play a full series!
Unlike other series that require a multi-day commitment to figure in the leaderboard, all the tournaments here happen in a single day!

Nazara Technologies Files for IPO
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Nazara Technologies Ltd, the Indian gaming company backed by billionaire Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, has filed for an IPO.

The company filed IPO documents with India’s market regulator on Friday. Its impending debut on the local exchanges could encourage other Indian startups to tap public markets, after years of explosive growth in mobile and internet usage created giant private firms from Paytm to Walmart Inc.’s Flipkart.

Founded by gamer Nitish Mittersain in 2000, when he was a college undergrad, Nazara is among the firms that have benefited from a global boom in smartphone gaming that began even before the pandemic drove millions online. Mittersain started the company with 30 million rupees borrowed from friends and family, only to get derailed during the dotcom bust. The firm spent its first decade clearing debt, but steadily built market share by acquiring fellow gaming startups.

It is now seeking to be among the first major Indian startups to go public at a time of burgeoning investor interest in the country’s technology sphere. Facebook Inc. and Alphabet Inc.’s Google are pouring billions into partnerships with local operator Jio Platforms Inc., while Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos has said that “the 21st century is going to be the Indian century.”
