After the incredible success of three seasons, the Poker Sports League (PSL) Season 4 is here in a new avatar – Phygital. With the pragmatic proliferation of integrated technology in the gaming sector, this season’s PSL is larger and more exciting than ever.
Back with a bang, India’s first-ever poker league – PSL’s online qualifiers begin from November 25th and the league will go on for two months with 2-3 matches per week hosted virtually. The season finale will be hosted live on-ground from February 7th -13th, 2022 first time ever since the pandemic.
Riding high on the gaming spirit, the tournament will give a chance to the players to represent their state and open avenues for budding players in the mind sports category. The participants, if selected, will get a coveted opportunity of practising and improving their game with the best in the country, while they prepare for the qualifiers. All one needs to do is download Hashtag Poker and learn the basics for free.
The Indian online gaming industry is at the cusp of transformation, looking at a growth trajectory of over US$3.9 billion in 2025 according to KPMG. This robust growth has fostered and led to improved social skills, decision-making skills, improved brain function, development of key skills, and memory enhancement for the players. Adopting newer technologies like Phygital is a testament to this growth as the game developers and publishers have a direct interest in being present in a multi-dimensional ecosystem where all aspects are interconnected.
Pranav Bagai, CEO and Founder, Poker Sports League announcing the season said “The gaming sector is opening up newer avenues and ways where amateur players can learn and get coached with the best in the field. We are thrilled to see the confluence of technological integration in the sector as it becomes a rewarding experience in every aspect of life. Having said that, we’ve had an excellent response in the last season and we’re excited to present our flagship product, Poker Sports League in a Phygital format this year. The poker fans can now look forward to a slew of interesting challenges ahead of them.”
Keeping in line with the concept of PSL season 4, every participant who makes it to the team will get remunerated and get a success fee from the prize pool in case their team wins. Bagai further adds, “We are thrilled to have 6 teams playing this year and anyone who knows the basics of poker – can play a series of online poker games to secure a spot in this India wide poker league. This season promises to be a fun-filled experience. From unique poker challenges to rewarding cash prizes, we have it all. We are excited and looking forward to seeing how the season unfolds as the players find their team camaraderie, dwell on the sportsman spirit and soak in all the glamour and flair of the finale.”
