EWar Games, a growing startup in India, has partnered with gaming giant Baazi Games to create a collaboration set to benefit both companies' player bases.
Users of EWar will now be able to play real money gaming products from Baazi on the mobile platform. PokerBaazi, an online poker game, and BalleBaazi, the fantasy cricket games, will be integrated on the EWar platform.
In return, Baazi will be able to leverage EWar's user base to attract new players to its portfolio of games.
Mr Parth Chadha, Founder and CEO of EWar Games, said of the collaboration: "The latest partnership between EWar and Baazi two popular names in India's the gaming industry - is indeed unique and significant, as it paves the way to a versatile experience for an emerging pool of real-money gamers in our country. By adding Baazi Games' skill and mind-based games for the first time on EWar's platform, we are fulfilling our promise of constantly expanding our game offerings, adding value, and bringing more opportunities to earn our users' money. In the future, we at EWar are confident of giving a wonderful combination of streaming and fair gaming experience in poker, fantasy cricket, and other games offered by Baazi."
Mr Navkiran Singh, Founder and CEO of Baazi Games, added: "It's an exciting phase for the online gaming industry in our country where we are seeing gaming startups like EWar add to popularizing and expanding Esports. This strategic alliance will help EWar go beyond the Esports offerings and offer a lot more value to the users by allowing them hands at Poker and Fantasy Sports.
