Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

India’s fastest growing online poker platform 9stacks, known for coming up with the most innovative promotions, is back with ‘Vegas in Rs 9’. In this contest, participants have to win two tournaments to win a trip to Las Vegas. Details available on the website. The contest runs from 10th to 25th March.

What’s new:

  • In Level 1, there are 14 power packed tournaments every day from 10th to 25th March, and the top 3 from each tournament qualify for the Level 2 ‘Take Off 2 Vegas’ tournament happening on 31st March 2019. The winner of that tournament gets a trip worth Rs. 2 Lakhs to Las Vegas
  • Most excitingly, users can collect multiple tickets to Level 2 and use them to re-enter the Take Off 2 Vegas if they get knocked out. More tickets, more chances
  • That’s not all. In the lead-up to the launch on the 10th of March, there are 3 tournaments every day where players can get a wild card entry to the final tournament.

“We were thrilled to see the poker talent that is out there in the country. The ‘Vegas in Rs 2’ promotion in February saw thousands of participants from tier 1 to tier 3 cities use their skills to beat the rest and enter the final level. Sajal Gupta and Ashish Kumar emerged victorious in this battle and will soon be battling the best at Vegas itself. Vegas in Rs 9 aims to go deeper into the heart of the country to find poker aspirants and give them a chance to showcase their skills on the biggest poker platform in the world,” says Sudhir Kamath, CEO, 9stacks.

“It’s been unbelievable. I never thought a relatively new player like me could have a chance to play poker in the city that gave birth to poker as we know it. I can’t wait to see Phil Ivey in action,” says February Vegas in Rs 2 winner Ashish Kumar.

Vegas in Rs 9 begins on 10th March 2019.

China to Expand Blacklist of Overseas Gambling Destinations Again

China to Expand Blacklist of Overseas Gambling Destinations Again
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism has announced its plans to introduce a “third batch” of blacklist measures aimed at overseas tourist destinations that attract Chinese tourists for gambling activities.

The ministry also said it would work with several other government departments to “suspend tour groups and arrangement of tourist visas” for outbound travel to these destinations.

As with earlier official mentions of China’s overseas-gambling blacklist, the latest announcement did not identify the places concerned.

The ministry mentioned on Friday its previous approach of including several overseas destinations – in “two batches” – in its “blacklist system” for cross-border gambling tourist destinations. It said such an approach was to “better regulate the travel market” and “safeguard the lives and financial safety of Chinese citizens”.

“The Ministry of Culture and Tourism is to adopt a measure to blacklist a third batch of travel destinations, in response to the recent developments whereby some cities abroad have lured Chinese tourists for gambling activities,” stated the ministry.

It added: “The ministry will – together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Public Security, the National Immigration Administration and the Civil Aviation Administration of China – adopt measures to suspend outbound tour groups and the arrangement of tourist visas for trips to these cities and attractions abroad that are on the ‘blacklist’; and reinforce the restrictive measures on business jets [travel] and charter services.”

The Ministry of Culture and Tourism also noted that the “blacklist” of travel destinations would be “dynamically adjusted” in accordance to any changes seen in overseas markets.

Under a new amendment in mainland China criminal law – with effect from March 1 – anyone who “organises” trips for mainland Chinese for the purpose of overseas gambling will be deemed to have committed a criminal act.
