Rummy FAQ

Rummy is a group of card games which is very popular around the world. This is said to be the ancestral to all rummy games. Rummy comes under the category of draw and discard games & is played with a set of playing cards, based on matching similar card types. While playing rummy, the player has to improve his hand (forming a particular set or sequence, abiding by the standard rules of the game) by picking up a card from the closed pile or discard pile. The 13 card rummy is most commonly played in India, usually with two packs of cards and players ranging from 2 to 6. Each player has to make 4 hands (The aim is to make 4 sets from the hand. Any one set of 4 cards & three sets of 3 cards each). The player who declares after completing his four hands first, is the winner.

Based upon our research, we believe that the games we offer are legal. The players are welcome to address any queries they may have by writing to our customer support.

 

We are supported in our view of the game of rummy being a game of skill and being completely legal by various judicial pronouncements and legislative enactments. There are a number of other websites as well which have been successfully conducting the game of Rummy for stake in India and they have relying upon the judicial precedents managed to overcome all legal impediments till date. This is however an ongoing process with litigations pending at various forums and we are keeping a close watch on the same. We ourselves also have a legal team working constantly on trying to ensure that there is more and more clarity and certainty in the laws qua gaming in India. We are also engaged in litigations to bring about this clarity in law and while the website has taken every precaution possible to remain absolutely legal, the players are advised to check their local laws if in doubt. We believe that we are legal based upon a catena of judgments of the Supreme Court of India starting from the Satyanarayan judgment of 1968 to the Laxmanan judgment in 1996 and the more recent judgments of various High Courts reiterating the stand. Apart from these judgments there are also legislations supporting the stand of the Company and as of today there is no restriction whatsoever from offering the aforementioned games. There are however a couple of judgments to the contrary including a recent judgment of the Chennai High Court and an opinion rendered by a Trial Court in Delhi, which are now pending before the higher forums and are under challenge. As things stand however, it would be safe to say that the games being offered by the company are legal in India and players playing on our website with or without stake are competing in a legal manner.
