5 FRIENDS, 1 ROOM, 1 VISION:
It all started as the brain child of Navkiran Singh, an ardent lover of the beauty called poker. With a clear vision of building a trust worthy indigenous poker website and the backing of 3 friends and his elder brother who all believed in his vision, this team started off on a journey to become trend setters in the Indian online poker industry. Dream became a reality for Indian Poker players, when on 23rd October, 2014 “India’s most trusted poker website” was born. That time was an incipient stage for poker players in India and PokerBaazi fit right in. For over a year, the team worked out of a single-room, working out what best they could offer to their players.
At inception, PokerBaazi started with just a handful of players but has rapidly risen to a player base of 300,000+. This in a 4 year span, is not for the faint hearted. The player base continues to grow and flourish. Recently, online poker has witnessed a massive boom because of its increasing recognition as a skill based game. The company has spearheaded campaigns to boost this cause and has carried out several webinars, live events in prestigious colleges viz-a-viz IIM Lucknow, IIT Kanpur, ISB, Delhi Technological University to name a few.
In a bid to bridge the gap between the West and India, PokerBaazi regularly hosts satellites on its website so as to allow players to win packages to the biggest of poker events across the globe. The company has sent players to the most sought after poker destinations such as Las Vegas, Australia. The most recent event in this list is the ongoing WSOPE in Czech Republic.
ONE ROOM TO A REVITALIZING OFFICE:
The company has now over 70 employees. Starting off from a single room, the workplace has now moved to a spacious location amidst a swimming pool, badminton court, basketball court and green lawn, the atmosphere just apt for a gaming workforce! PokerBaazi is inclined towards a setup, conducive to the productivity of its employees. A healthy employee-employer relationship has always been at the core of its values.
THE BAAZI BRAND:
The company is not just restricted to leading the Indian online poker space, but also widen its scope into the real cash gaming. The aim stands at building trust worthy, superior platforms for various games under the Baazi Games bandwagon to fully satisfy the gaming appetite of India. Recently, the company spread its wings into fantasy sports by launching “BalleBaazi.com” which is into fantasy cricket. This will soon be followed by football fantasy and many more in future.
IT’S FUTILE WITHOUT GIVING BACK:
In the four years that PokerBaazi has been around, it has always given back to the community. It took up three major initiatives that were to help the community and also engage its players in playing for charity. The campaigns were for The Clever Bud Foundation, The Clean Yamuna Campaign and most recently the floods in Kerala.
