Spartan Poker launches bumper ‘Royalty’ program this April

Spartan Poker launches bumper ‘Royalty’ program this April

Spartan Poker is one of the leading online poker portals in the country and keeping true to its roots of being an innovative brand, it comes as no surprise that Spartan has launched a massive player rewards program at the start of the summer. Kicking off from 31st March, Spartan Poker’s Royalty program promises rich rewards for participating players in terms of two weekly leaderboards for cashback and some mind-blowing prizes. Dubbed as the Royalty Cash Rewards and Royalty Treasure Rewards respectively, the more points players earn, the higher are the levels of prizes they can attain.

Let’s a take a look at both sides to this new Spartan Royalty program:-

Royalty Cash – Earn upto 60% cashback every week!

The Royalty Cash Rewards program is going to delight cash game grinders because one can earn from a minimum 20% to a massive 60% cashback by participating in cash games at Spartan. And what’s more, you get paid out with your cashback earned every week! That’s right, qualifying players will be paid out every week in Real Cash!

Cashing out can begin by earning a mere 30 Cash points (in the 20% cashback slab) which will net you INR 120 in Real Cash. At the top of the pile, earning 70,000 Cash points (in the 60% cashback slab) means a monstrous INR 8.4 Lakhs going to your account in Real Cash! The percentage of your Royalty level increases based on the cash points you have generated over the week. So, the more you play, the more you win. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? For participating in Royalty Cash use the code “CASH

Now that’s an incredible amount to be rewarded for your playing efforts. And as mentioned before, these cashback amounts will hit your account on a weekly basis i.e. every Sunday morning at 6:00 am.

Royalty Treasure – Win a Jaguar F-Pace luxury automobile!

For those players who are keen to win some of the most fabulous prizes on offer, Spartan welcomes you to its Treasure Rewards program. There are plenty of giveaways in this second segment of the Royalty Rewards program which offers qualifying players prizes from tournament tickets to some of Spartan’s top tournaments to trips to the world’s poker capital Las Vegas and you could even find yourself driving away a beautiful Jaguar F-Pace automobile!

Like the Cash rewards, the Treasure program too features several levels (40 Levels in fact) where players can earn prizes starting at a mere 10 VIP points collected. The initial VIP levels give away prizes in the form of Bonus money, tournament tickets and of course Real Cash too. The mid levels get you prizes like smart watches, high-end mobile phones, big screen TVs and holiday packages to destinations like Australia, Spain and Philippines. But like in tournament poker, the real juice is in the top VIP levels where qualifying players can win poker packages to Las Vegas and Monte Carlo or even take your partner or friend on a fantastic luxury trip for two to the USA. The biggest grinders who end up in the upper echelons of the VIP levels can win 30 Lakhs (Real Cash+Bonus Money) or a spanking new Mercedes or Audi. We’ve seen it happen before on multiple occasions at Spartan where players have managed to score the highest number of points and in this case, that player would end riding the power of 177 horses via the magnificent Jaguar F-Pace luxury automobile which is headed the way of any player who reaches VIP Level 40.

Again it goes without saying, the more you play, the more points you score, the rewards you win! For participating in Royalty Treasure use the code “TREASURE

Things to keep in mind

The Royalty program is a fantastic one for players whether they choose to opt for Cash or Treasures or even both but that’s the key, you need to opt in. Here’s a quick look at some of the key points for this Rewards program at Spartan:-

  1. You MUST opt in using the code specific to the Rewards program you like i.e. ‘CASH‘ for the cashback program or ‘TREASURE‘ for the prizes program.
  2. You can participate in both programs but not at the same time. You will need to use the above-mentioned codes to switch between programs.
  3. Players can switch between the Treasure and Cash Programs any time without any restrictions or loss of points.

Spartan Signature tournaments

2.o.K: Over the months, Two of a Kind (2.o.K) has become one of the most popular tournaments in the Indian online poker circuit, where play halts after someone busts in 3rd place. Basically, there’s not differentiation between 1st and 2nd place, with both taking away massive prizes of INR 15 Lakh each, irrespective of their chip counts at the time, or the number of entries the tournament attracts. As usual, the tournament is scheduled for 6pm on 3rd February, the first Sunday of the month, with a buy-in of INR 5,500.

Big Ten: What is this, you’re probably wondering? Another new offering from The Spartan Poker, which will be played at 6pm on 10th February, the second February of the month.

The ‘BIG TEN’ will give you the chance to considerably boost your bankrolls this month.

5 For 5: It has just been a few months since this tournament was launched by Spartan, but it has been a massive success thus far. Every month, hundreds of players pay INR 5,500 each to enter this tournament, where play stops after a point, much like the 2.o.K. There, it’s two players and here, as the name suggests, the tournament halts when 5-way play is reached. Played on the last Sunday of the month (24th February), the top 5 players will receive prizes of INR 5,00,000 each!

Instant Bonus – INR 25 Lakh

Exciting rewards are always up for grabs on The Spartan Poker.

Scheduled between 13-17 February, a total of INR 3.1+ Crore has been announced in guaranteed prizes during the span of these 5 days. This includes an SSS Leaderboard, where a total prize pool of INR 5 Lakh will be shared among the top 5 players, including INR 2.5 Lakh to the Leaderboard topper. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it?

First IOPC of 2019 a smashing success; more than 10 Crores awarded!

First IOPC of 2019 a smashing success; more than 10 Crores awarded!

Every mid to high-stakes poker player in the country would’ve been licking their lips thinking about the exciting month of January lined up on The Spartan Poker. Apart from a fantastic Rewards Plus system for cashback and a chance to fly to Las Vegas, Spartan also launched another edition of the India Online Poker Championship (IOPC).

Already the biggest online poker series in the country, this edition of the IOPC took place between 11-20 January 2019, breaking its own record and promising a total of INR 8.5+ crore in series guarantees. Recently, this series came to an end with the IOPC Main Event taking place, another record-breaker, with an INR 1.5 Crore prize pool.

This became the biggest ever single online poker tournament in the country, and Ashish Munot ended victorious earlier yesterday, taking home a gigantic cash prize of INR 37.5 Lakh. Another hugely successful tournament was the Super High Roller where Gokul Raj won INR 28+ Lakh while Joey Saha emerged victorious in The Millionaire for INR 25 Lakh.

Talking about winning The Millionaire victory, Saha said, “The experience was great. This is my biggest score till date. I was in for I think 8 or 9 rebuys so was really happy to at least break even. Running deep in these massive events is always a sick experience and these are the moments we play this game for. This is a great start to 2019 and hopefully just the start of things to come.”

Overall, the series ended as a fantastic one for the players, as well as for The Spartan Poker. While there were overlays in The Millionaire and the Main Event, the advertised series guarantee was crushed, with more than INR 10 crores being given away in total cash prizes, as compared to the INR 8.5 crore promise.

Along with the cash prizes given away, a spectacular prize of INR 30+ Lakh was up for grabs on the IOPC Leaderboard, including a stunning new Skoda Octavia to the one who finished first. Leaderboards are for the most consistent players and it was no surprise that Akshay Nasa aka ‘sherlock52’ won this competition, ensuring himself a brand-new ride!

Spartan is an industry leader when it comes to online poker in India and they have proved this yet again with this recent edition of the IOPC, which concluded yesterday. This was the first IOPC of the year and poker enthusiasts will look forward to the next edition, where we can only imagine what the guarantee could be.

Biggest IOPC ever this January at The Spartan Poker

Biggest IOPC ever this January at The Spartan Poker

Get ready for the ‘Baap’ of all online poker offerings this January as 2019 kicks off with the biggest ever edition of the India Online Poker Championship (IOPC). Featuring more than 50 tournaments and a mind boggling INR 8.5 Crores in guaranteed prizes! Now that’s a crackling start to your New Year courtesy of The Spartan Poker where all this action will take place from 11-20 January 2019.

The biggest ever IOPC takes place this January

As players on the Indian circuit will be aware, the IOPC is the online version of India Poker Championship (IPC), a live tournament brand which started in 2010 and has done a number of live poker tournaments in Goa and Sri Lanka as well. When the organisers realised that there were many players who wished to participate in the IPC but were unable to travel to Goa, they set up the IOPC so that no one would miss out. In the span of just 2 years, the IOPC has grown steadily giving bigger guarantees and additional prizes like luxury automobiles. The online version is, without doubt, the biggest and most popular series in India, with guarantees that are unmatched by any of the other Indian competitors.

Due to the enormity of this series, it is held only twice a year by and on The Spartan Poker, where players from all around the country try to be among the winners and try to earn a prestigious IOPC title. Or maybe even two! It’s not just another edition of the IOPC, but it’s also set to be the biggest ever IOPC series, or we might even say the biggest ever series in the history of online poker in India. These prizes will be spread over 10 days and a total of 55 tournaments, which include buy-ins ranging between INR 330 to INR 1 Lakh. Yes, that’s right! The INR 70 Lakh GTD Super Highroller (SHR) is the first time that the country will see a 6-figure entry fee for an online poker tournament. Trust The Spartan Poker to bring up such amazing opportunities!

Apart from the SHR, there are plenty of other high-value tournaments which will be contested during the series, including the massive INR 1 Crore GTD Millionaire (13th Jan) as well as the INR 1.5 Crore GTD Main Event (20th Jan). To add to this, the IOPC Leaderboard will offer INR 30 Lakhs in guaranteed prizes, including a luxurious Skoda Octavia to the eventual winner, so there’s plenty motivation to keep grinding through the series. Take a look at the IOPC Leaderboard prize distribution here:

2018’s first edition of the IOPC was held with the ‘Babaji Raise The Bar’ tagline, where INR 6+ crore was on offer between 12-21 January. The last edition of the IOPC was held in July 2018 and there were many happy poker players by the end of that competition, where INR 7+ crore was on offer with the ‘Skill Se Kar Kill’ tagline. The last edition saw Pulkit Goyal aka ‘ChampionPlayer’ ending as the Player of the Series, taking away a stunning Jeep Compass as a leaderboard prize, in addition to his tournament winnings. The Main Event was one of the highlights of that tournament which was taken down by Sangeeth Mohan aka ‘Nangaanaach’, shipping the tournament for nearly 20 lakhs rupees in prize money.

It’s bigger and better now as a never-seen-before series guarantee is here, to go with the biggest buy-in event, Spartan’s biggest IOPC Main Event, and an IOPC Leaderboard. Of course, poker is about skill and this leaderboard will be one where all the best players will be vying for a top spot, for the additional prize money as well as all the bragging rights.
