Poker Sports League’s Amit Burman Sheds Light On Season 3’s Virtual Format

by Manthra Koliyer Posted on 14 Dec, 2020

Poker Sports League (PSL) is India’s first poker league. Due to the pandemic, the league has been conducting all of its tournaments virtually. The promoter of this homegrown brand, Amit Burman, has mentioned in brief the progress of PSL. He elaborated on the various aspects of this industry.

On being quizzed about PSL’s progress during the pandemic, Burman mentioned that “Due to the pandemic, it was an unfortunate situation that we couldn’t go ahead with season 3 this year. With the digital media growing, with respect to Poker Sports League – Virtual Season 3 (PSL-V), we are glad to bring back the season in a new format. This new format has revolutionized the way poker tournaments are looked at. This game enables the viewers to witness the euphoria of a live game virtually.

This year, the league was supposed to take place between six teams, but due to the overwhelming response from online qualifiers and exhibition tournaments, Virtual Poker League(VPL) will have two more teams. The potential growth of online gaming in India has been the reason for increased participation. We have signed a contract with six team owners for the upcoming five years and 10 seasons.”

As per reports, PSL is in talks with multiple OTT platforms. On quizzing about updates on that front, Burman said, “For us, having a tie-up with an OTT platform is very crucial, our existing and potential audiences belong to gen-next. They are technology-friendly, will help us grow. Once we tie-up with an OTT platform, the sponsors will see the opportunities on the branding side.”

According to a recent statistics report by EY-FICCI Frames, in 2019, transaction-based skill games grew by 50%, whereas mind games like poker grew by 30%. Only certain sections of the society have understood the aspects of poker, it will take a considerable time to make the audiences aware of the game.

For our upcoming e-magazine, we conducted a fun interview with PSL Co-Founder Pranav Bagai about the progress and how they switched to the virtual space during the pandemic. Stay tuned to the website to know more. For more similar news and updates, continue reading GutshotMagazine.com.
