The site announced a new tournament called Falcon which started from 27 March to continue till 1 April at 4 pm daily. Geared up for social cause, the tournament features a buy-in of INR 2,700 and assures INR 5 Lakhs in prize pool each day. The rakes coming within 5 days will go to the COVID-19 Helpcare. And the best part is that it is open to all regs, pros and newcomers.

Naveen Goyal, CEO of Adda52 said, “It is a time in the country when we as a responsible organization must make whatever efforts possible to help those affected by this pandemic. Post coronavirus outbreak, the traffic on the online gaming platforms has gained drastically due to the 21 day lockdown imposed in the country and being one of the biggest online gaming platforms, it is our responsibility to contribute to the ways of helping the needy during these hard times. We are organizing tournaments with the primary objective of donating the revenue earned to the government’s Covid-19 Relief Fund so that it can reach the needy swiftly.”
