In poker tournaments, players are required to pay a fixed entry fee called buy-in, which may vary depending on the tournament. For paid tournaments, the buy-in includes 10% margin.

Following recent GST changes effective from October 1st, 2023, a 28% GST is now applicable on all deposits. At Pocket52, we are dedicated to providing our players with a seamless and top-notch gaming experience. As a testament to our commitment, we bear the entire GST on deposits for our valued players.

Separately an additional margin of 28% on existing margins shall be applied to cash games. This approach allows us to optimize our reward. We extend our sincere gratitude to our players for their ongoing support.
