The site was founded in 2011, with a few thousand subscribers and a vision to take poker to the next level.

The site also started reaching out to players by hosting live tournaments in colleges like IIM-Lucknow in 2013.
The year 2014 was dedicated to enriching the gaming experience of the users and moving towards a more mobile compatible platform. This was also the year, when the site started its Bollywood association by becoming a Brand Partner for the movie ‘Mary Kom’ and entering the eye of the masses.
In 2015, the site launched the first Indian professional poker team. The same year the poker site also rolled out its mobile app for players and the site migrated its poker game lobby from a Flex-based User Interface to HTML5-based User Interface, offering a superior UI to its registered players.
With the start of 2016, Deltin Poker Tournament (DPT) was launched which has the biggest guaranteed prize pool in India. Up next, the poker site tied up with World Poker Tour® for an exclusive license of products and services in India to provide Indian poker players a global opportunity to qualify for select WPT events via official satellites on Adda52 and compete against international players.
The same year, the company also launched the Player of the Year (POY) Leaderboard, introduced new tournaments and exciting new variants like Crazy Pineapple.
