Shane Warne joins Bollywood movie star in showcasing

Cricket legend Shane Warne is combining two of his passions in his latest appointment – cricket and online poker.
In a deal with the owners of Indian Premier League cricket team Rajasthan Royals, Raj Kundra and his movie star wife Shilpa Shetty, Warne has agreed to promote the couple's latest venture, a real-money online poker site branded
The site enters an increasingly competitive Indian market and will rival Essel Group's and Delta Corp's recent acquisition, Adda52.
The Kundras' Satyug Gold Pvt Ltd company backs the online poker site, which offers players an opportunity to play real money online poker on the same table with Bollywood stars, prominent cricketers and major businessmen.
Kundra has some experience with the online space, operating, a real-money stock exchange-based game. He has recently withdrawn the real-money element, and the site now focuses on free-play and prize rewards…still providing a useful promotional cross-over tool for the online poker offering.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
