PokerBaazi Adds Another Poker Variant to Their App! has grown to become India’s Most Trusted Poker Website and with good reason. Apart from the stellar promotions, break-through events and series, and the most rewarding player loyalty program Baazi Rewards, the company is backed by a team of brilliant professionals. Not only is this a team that is highly competent and innovative, but what truly sets them apart is their attention and regard for their valued players.

Constantly improving and setting new benchmarks, the company has gone on to create plenty of milestone events in the domestic online poker circuit. From the PPL to the MoneyMaker, GameChanger to ValueBomb – has raised the bar for both players and operators alike. One of the biggest assets that the company has today is their homegrown software - which was created from scratch by Avneet Rana and his team.

The PokerBaazi software has seen a lot of improvement, particularly over the last year or so. While there were certain issues that players brought to the notice of the team, each has been addressed individually and rectified to ensure a smooth and seamless gaming experience. Some of these include the top-up feature in cash games, auto-seat selection, auto-table switching, player notes, faster load time, auto sit-out (next hand/cash games/tournaments/all), satellite info in the tournament lobby, BB count (in tournaments), My Stats, Game Stats (cash games), Hand Strength and of course the portrait mode gaming feature – which has become a trend among both operators and players.

The above tweaks in software have no doubt made gaming more enjoyable on the platform, but the process is a continuous one. This time around, PokerBaazi team is out with some exciting variants of the game. The latest to come out are as follows:

  • 5 Card PLO – Pot Limit Omaha is a thoroughly enjoyed game in the Indian circuit, and the introduction of 5-card PLO comes as great news for all PLO lovers! After all, 5 is better than 4!
  • Open-Face Chinese (OFC) Poker- A comparatively newer variant of poker, OFC is loved by many across the globe. We are elated to offer yet another form of poker to the Indian online poker players. Date for OFC launch will be out soon.

Along with 5 Card PLO, the tech has also powered the following feature release as part of their continuous efforts in enhancing the playing experience:

  • Tournament Info (mobile app) – Information about an ongoing tournament (Players/Blind Levels/Stacks/Position/Places Paid) will now be available on the table via a slide-key. This will eliminate the need to leave the table and open the tournament lobby for this information.

Team has also brought in some experience enhancements including free flowing gaming animations among other stability upgrades.

Avneet Rana, Director of Technology at Baazi Games, has been the backbone of the entire tech team through the years. No words can do justice to the kind of work that goes into the technology of a gaming company – let alone one which includes three different platforms - PokerBaazi, BalleBaazi and RummyBaazi.

While sipping his favourite cold coffee, Avneet spoke about these new developments. He stated “Being in the gaming industry, it is a necessity to keep introducing new features in our apps. This helps in keeping up the excitement of our players. Having an in-house tech allows us to stay at par with the latest trends.”

The company has already created a name for itself as innovators in the poker industry, and with the backing of a smooth interface and seamless gaming experience, they’re all set to take online poker in India to new heights.

For now, sit back, explore and enjoy these new features on India’s Most Trusted Poker Website,

Want to win real cash for free? Why Not!

Making good amounts of money without spending a single rupee is an option only a fool would not choose. If it’s free entry tournaments on PokerBaazi, then you are definitely missing a lot here!

Here’s how you can easily be a poker shark in a sea of poker fishes:

Don’t jump in with all the vigour

Sit tight initially, because, at the beginning of an online free entry tournament, the players go ahead with crazy hands. Lots of all-ins will be done without a hint of premeditation. So wait until the chaos ends. Do not play “real poker” in this phase.

Be fearless!

Being an aggressive player is the go-to style of playing poker and the same is true in the case of freerolls. Since there is no real money value attached to your chips in this game, you can play as fiercely as you want. However, going overboard would be a fool’s doing. Be aggressive but always use your brains!

Play big pairs like a maniac!

A maniac is someone who plays wildly and is someone who is not a highly-skilled player. However, if you are holding a pair of aces, go crazy! The chances are the lesser experienced players will be raising or calling which will pump up the pot. The experienced players will most probably fold and if he/she has playable holdings then a double through could be possible.

Think like a fish

To dominate in a field filled with fishes, you have to think like a fish. Think what mistakes they make and how they will play a particular hand and do the opposite of it!


Many players sit-out or forget that they had ever registered for a tournament, this enables a skilled player to dominate the felts. He can easily build up a healthy stack.

Online free entry tournaments offer several winning opportunities for astute players who have had checked the waters of both online poker and live poker.

You can win big on PokerBaazi as we host online free entry tournaments with a monthly guarantee of INR 40 LAC along with leaderboard prizes such as Amazon Echo, OnePlus6T and JBL headphones!

Skill is Supreme!

On PokerBaazi, each day is filled with excitement and newer achievements. We make sure that our team fulfills all the poker needs of our Baazigars. From affordable cash games and tourneys to games with massive 2 CRORE guarantee (Game Changer). We have had the privilege to offer online poker games for poker players and enthusiasts, but if you are following us on our blog page and social media channels, you would know that we are also gearing up to offer live poker at Casino Pride 2, Goa.
