Our team's experience ensures 9stacks is the safest place to play poker online with real money

We understand the tax aspects of online poker

We have a clear TDS policy so you can rest assured that any TDS due has been deducted and deposited automatically; and we have a two-wallet system (implemented across all players for the first time in India) that ensures we only deduct tax when necessary and don’t expose you to unknown tax liabilities (as most of our competitors seem to do). We do not pay tax on your profits, and if someone else promises to do that for you then please make the best of that opportunity before they go bust or are found out.

Dual chip system

9stacks uses a “Dual Chip” system to streamline the tax treatment of poker winnings. Whenever you deposit money on our system, an equivalent amount of User Chips are credited to your User Balance. At any given time, you could either encash User Chips as a withdrawal or move them to the Poker Balance to get equivalent Poker Chips.Read more

Clear TDS Policy

When you withdraw chips from your Poker Balance to User Balance, you will have to withdraw the full amount as partial withdrawals are not allowed. If your winnings (Amount minus cumulative deposit since last withdrawal) exceeds 10,000 or more, TDS is applicable. We will deduct that and deposit it with the tax authorities (and issue you a TDS certificate).Read more

We handle your money with care

Liquid funds

No credit

Separate bank accounts

Clear communication

We handle your money with care, but unlike some of our competitors we do not treat it like our own money! We keep our users money in separate bank accounts that we do NOT touch for our overheads, technical or marketing expenses, all of which are funded by us and our investors. Oh, and unlike some of our competitors (and most illegal off-line poker events) we don’t allow anyone to play on credit, so we don’t have to scramble to collect money before we pay out our winners. We keep user money in liquid funds that can be returned to customers as and when requested, no questions asked, and aim to offer the fastest withdrawals in the poker industry.

We also don’t like offering fake/exaggerated promotions that offer you “Rs 1000 bonus on Rs 1000 deposited”, etc – where the fine print says you have to earn a million loyalty points to earn the thousand rupees. Our promotions keep things simple – and real!

Safe Platform for playing poker

We have put in place a rock-solid platform (hardware as well as software) to ensure you are safe. All our payment gateways are PCI-DSS compliant and use 3D-secure authentication – industry leading standards. All poker engines use Random Number Generators (RNGs) – ours is iTechLabs certified, which is the highest recognition in the industry – on par with the best worldwide!

The fine print

All our policies are clearly defined and accessible on our website at all times – do spare a few minutes and go through our Terms of service, Privacy policy, Refunds policy & Disconnection policy.


We encourage you to compare the contents of this page against those of our competitors, and judge for yourself. And we promise that if you find a single thing that our competitors are doing better, we will make that change ourselves and throw in a reward for your efforts! And unlike most of our competitors, we don’t hide behind faceless and nameless about us pages – you can read all about us here, and directly contact us if you have any safety concerns whatsoever.
