Some interesting insights came to fore in the pre launch market study conducted by Pokernation that clearly defined the need and set the path for marketing the platform in India. Through a multi-city ‘teach-learn-play’ model, the brand conducted free poker tournaments to study the enthusiasm and gauge the poker knowledge of the youth about this game and test their abilities at decision-making and skilful thinking. After interacting with over 5000 young adults from Mumbai to Delhi to Punjab to Indore, the brand had a reason to believe that a new narrative was steadily developing in India’s burgeoning e-gaming world.
“We identified the need for teaching the sport as the primary task for ourselves. This and then giving people the opportunity to compete against each other in live tournaments and sharpen their skills will form the focus of our efforts in the coming few years”
