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.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The Wakayama IR Promotion Council has urged the prefectural government to take a decision as soon as possible on its preferred private partner for its IR bid.

Wakayama prefecture announced in January that two private partner candidates, Suncity Group and Clairvest Neem Ventures, had applied for its IR bid, but the target date for an IR partner selection has been pushed back several times.

According to local media, the target date will occur in the spring of this year but little has been known in recent months.

Katsuaki Shirako, secretary-general of the IR Promotion Council, said: “When considering the era after the coronavirus, Wakayama will have a very difficult economic environment if the IR does not come.”

According to Wakayama prefecture’s policy, the IR development must offer a symbolic landmark and be technologically advanced, including MICE facilities covering 50,000 square meters and a casino comprising no more than 3% of the entire area.

In September 2020, the prefecture extended the deadline for request-for-proposal submissions from potential private sector partners by almost three months to January 2021.
