The owner of PokeStar is aiming for at least half of the Indian market, which it estimates could reach USD 150M over time. The brand is currently meeting with local partners.

ldquo;It’s a booming country,” Chief Executive Officer of Amaya Rafi Ashkenazi told the media after an annual meeting in Montreal last week, Bloomberg reported.

“We want to be there in time and we want to make sure that we are, as usual, the market leader when it comes to poker.”

Ashkenazi said his chief operating officer is currently in India to finalize details of the agreement with the local partner, which already has a license. He didn’t name the company.

The deal will give PokerStars access to all of India except "a couple" of states, Ashkenazi added.
