Card games have been with Indians as simply and surely as have their summers and rains. Festivals, holidays, marriages, social gatherings have perpetually and for ages had card games like rummy and teen patti as an indivisible part of the fun and entertainment activities, festivities and the overall Indian psyche. Add to it poker, the new cache of the Indian entertainment-
This is world class online gaming tech sophistication and India centric focus. Multiple channels are offered to the client viz. downloadable and browser-based clients; and above all native mobile applications for both android and ios; this has made a classy difference and increased user efficacy. Good sites the likes of Pokerstars and 888poker are very much available to the Indian player, but it is actually completely illegal to play on these sites. Online poker today is being treated lately like any other entertainment business, and requisite taxes of the land are applicable, as long as FDI (foreign direct investment) isn’t a part of the venture and technical collaboration is not with foreign entities.
For instance, any winnings above 10,000 INR attract a 30.9% TDS (tax deduction at source) A number of payment aggregators or processors, within the framework of the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) are providing deposit and withdrawal facilities for playing online rummy and online poker in India.
Obviously, Pokermasti.com too, like some other sites like adda52 are diligently paying taxes on income, deducting TDS on player winnings as per Government norms and providing a clean, certified, indigenous (Indian company only) technology.
We asked Raj Shahani, the Director of Cyber Gaming Software Technologies what was so unique about Pokermasti, apart from the product? Here’s what he had to say, “Online poker is a great weekend sport, there are so many people logged in online playing recreational poker, and poker does create and capitalize on aspiration. At pokermasti.com the ecosystem is so tightly moderated that recreational players playing here feel safe and get their money’s worth…win or lose. An Online Poker site should understand the importance of these first time players and these weekend visitors. These set of players who come to have a good time are the oxygen to any online poker site. In fact all online poker sites should stop rake back and reward these recreational players instead who play poker as a hobby. For pokermasti.com the recreational poker player is THE NOW AND FUTURE of Online Poker and with a great sense of responsibility we have to encourage these casual players.”
Wise words. Online poker in India is still in a nascent state and it is picking up slowly but surely. Though with a superior technology than the rest of the competition out there, a great security system, loyalty systems and VIP player structures, a great back-end and service management system, headache-free gameplay among other things, why is Pokermasti.com still in Beta? And why do we not see a gamut of promotions and marketing that other poker sites out there are so feverishly implementing?
Here’s what she had to say: “The answer is simple: it’s the way we are built, the way we define and re-define our creativity and how well we listen to our customers/players. Our plan was to run Beta for 6 months to see traction. We needed to first test the product out there in the market, and see player acclimatization. Once that is done, we will roll out new features, new offers and customized promotions based on player demand and interest. Since we are also extremely conscientious about our legal approach to our gaming venture in India, we also want the product and services to completely conform to the laws of the land. I guess I didn't see miracle worker in my job description, but that’s how cutting edge technology and new ventures work. We’re now ready to push the envelope.”
