Delta Corp brings world poker king to 10th anniversary

High rollers and poker lovers from across India had the rare chance to meet global pro player and renowned celebrity Patrik Antonius at Delta Corp Limited’s 10th anniversary special on board its Deltin Royale Casino in Goa.

Antonius - a Finnish poker player who is also a former tennis player, coach and model - placed his cards on the table while enjoying the festivities. The long weekend saw grand celebrations, including entertainment performances by top Bollywood celebrities, across all three Delta Corp vessels in Goa - Deltin Royale, Deltin JAQK and Deltin Caravela. 

Delta Corp is the only listed company in the casino gaming industry in India and has been at the centre of the country’s poker fabric since 2008. It has been instrumental in grooming the country’s competitive poker environment by aligning with multiple poker operators to conduct tournaments in Goa from 2011.

Antonius said, “Poker in India is growing and it is nice to see how much people are enjoying playing here. I look forward to being a part of the big events in India in the future. Adda52 and Deltin Royale have done a great job in Goa to get India a proper recognition in poker.” Delta Corp’s business head for Poker Manish Adnani added, “We are pleased to have Patrik Antonius commemorate our 10th anniversary and enjoy the festivities with the community. I am very humbled to celebrate this moment with Delta Corp. I remember playing the first game hosted by Casino Royale back in 2009, and since then poker has aggressively been promoted by Delta Corp Ltd and is growing at a fast pace in the sub-continent.” 

Delta Corp introduced Texas Hold ‘Em on Casino Royale in 2009 and led the wave of bringing high stakes poker gaming to Goa in 2011. A few years later, it introduced India’s flagship poker tournament - Deltin Poker Tournament - in 2016, and followed it up with India’s first Poker Sports League the next year.
