Carrying the torch for India’s rapidly growing competitive poker community in the international poker arena, professional poker player and World Series of Poker Bracelet winner Nikita Luther recently participated in the Game of Gold, a first-of-its-kind invite-only poker reality tournament. The Natural8 India ambassador was the only Indian poker pro to be invited to the event which featured global heavyweights such as Daniel Neagranu, Fedor Holz, Dan ‘Jungleman’ Cates, and Maria Ho.

Nikita’s presence at the Game of Gold, a winner-takes-all event with a whopping prize pot of $456,000, reflects the ever-increasing popularity of online and mobile gaming in India, particularly skill games such as poker that pit players against each other in a battle of wits, patience, and ingenuity. A total of 16 top professional poker players have been invited to participate in the illustrious first edition of the Game of Gold, with the first five episodes garnering over a million YouTube views cumulatively, thanks to the unique format of the tournament. The show airs every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at 5:30pm IST on the GGPoker Youtube channel for a total of 12 episodes.

Speaking about the event, Nikita Luther, Brand Ambassador Natural8 India, said, “From the tables of tradition to the digital felts, poker in India has become more than a game—it’s an ever-growing movement. This is the first ever survival reality poker show in the world featuring some of the best in the business and my invitation as an Indian poker professional at the inaugural Game of Gold reflects the growing popularity of poker in India. The pulse-pounding arena of high-stakes poker combined with reality TV format is going to be an unforgettable chapter in my poker career.”

In round one of Game of Gold, the 16 participants are divided into four teams represented by the 4 different suits of cards in poker: Spades, Hearts, Diamonds, and Clubs. The participants from the losing team are eliminated and teams are reformed at each stage in keeping with the reality TV aspect of the tournament. Nikita was initially on Team Spades, along with Charlie Carrel, Fedor Holz and Johan ‘YoH ViraL’ Guilbert. Her latest game was an intense match-up against her former Team Spades teammate YoH ViraL.

Interviewer (Edwin Ward, WX2): Welcome, Itai Loewenstein and Marina Nahhas from ProgressPlay! We’re thrilled to discuss your latest advancements and your presence at SIGMA Asia 2024 in Manila. Let’s start with you, Itai. ProgressPlay has been named one of Europe’s Top 10 Casino Tech Solutions Providers in 2024. How does it feel to receive such recognition?

Itai Loewenstein: Thank you! It’s an honour to be recognised among Europe’s top casino tech providers. This accolade reflects the hard work and innovation our team has put into developing cutting-edge solutions that meet the evolving needs of the iGaming industry.

Absolutely. Now, you’re set to make waves in the Asian iGaming sector with your standalone product. Can you tell us more about it?

Itai Loewenstein: Our standalone product is truly revolutionary. It allows our partners to target all markets, offering them unprecedented control and flexibility. This platform was designed to empower operators by giving them the ability to manage their own operations while we provide the robust technological backbone.

That sounds impressive. Marina, how important is the SIGMA Asia 2024 event for ProgressPlay, and what do you hope to achieve there?

Marina Nahhas: SIGMA Asia is incredibly important for us. It’s our debut at this prestigious event, and we’re super excited to showcase our latest products. The exhibition is the perfect opportunity to present our standalone product to a large number of potential new customers, especially those looking to tap into the rapidly growing Asian iGaming market.

With the event expected to attract over 20,000 delegates, it’s sure to be a bustling hub of activity. Can you shed some light on the current trends driving the growth of the Asian iGaming industry?

Marina Nahhas: Certainly. The Asian iGaming industry is booming due to several factors, including technological advancements, the widespread adoption of mobile devices, and the increasing popularity of online gaming. Digital payment methods have also played a crucial role, making it easier for users to engage with online platforms. This creates lucrative opportunities for gaming entrepreneurs.

Itai, your standalone licensee offering debuted at ICE in January. How has the response been so far, and what makes this offering unique especially for the Asian market?

Itai Loewenstein: The response has been overwhelmingly positive. Our standalone offering is unique because it allows operators to fully control their operations, from branding to regulatory compliance, while we handle the technological aspects. This arrangement provides immense flexibility and scalability, making it ideal for operators looking to expand into new markets. ProgressPlay’s unique platform capability allows operators to open many multi-brands in a matter of hours, as the latest-generation platform supports the white-label offering. This new proprietary multi-brand platform allows operators to streamline their casino brands fast thanks to ProgressPlay’s flexible high-performance technical platform.

That’s great to hear. Can you elaborate on the technological aspects of your platform and the team behind its development?

Itai Loewenstein: Our platform has been meticulously developed over the years by a team of top-notch professionals dedicated to serving regulated markets, including the UK. We’ve incorporated many proprietary services developed in-house, ensuring that our platform meets all diverse requirements. This includes our proprietary AI capabilities for safer gambling, which have been shortlisted for the EGR Awards again.

Marina, how does ProgressPlay ensure that its platform remains flexible and adaptable to various regional and regulatory requirements?

Marina Nahhas: Our platform’s flexibility is one of its key strengths. We enable operators to tailor their offerings to specific regions and regulatory requirements. This is achieved through a strategic joint venture with a reputable cashier, facilitating seamless integration of various payment methods. This approach ensures that we cater to the diverse needs of our partners.

Itai, what are the main advantages of the standalone platform for operators, particularly in the Asian market?

Itai Loewenstein: The biggest advantage is the wider selection of countries and regulatory territories operators can choose from based on their licenses. As Marina said, our built-in proprietary cashier can be easily adapted to relevant markets and payment processors. Additionally, the ability to create brands under the standalone platform is especially beneficial for generating healthy ROI in Asian markets. We’ll be showcasing all these features at stand BR917 at SiGMA Asia.

Thank you, Itai and Marina, for sharing these insights. We look forward to seeing ProgressPlay’s innovations at SIGMA Asia 2024!

Itai Loewenstein and Marina Nahhas: Thank you! We can’t wait to connect with everyone at the event.
