RummyRoyal.com introduced an internet casino to the industry just one year ago, and already has seen a huge success. The company which held the biggest online Rummy tournament, with a guaranteed prize pool of $10,000 reports that they expect to be around for some time.
Rummy tournaments are rare to the internet casino industry, and this greatly contributes to the success and future longevity of the website. The game has a variety of versions, including Gin Rummy, Kalooki, Rummy500, Mahjong, Rummikub, Traditional Rummy, and so forth.
RummyRoyal.com was released in the second half of 2007, and has since gained an enormous consumer base and popularity among the gaming community. The company offers an advanced multi-player gaming platform for its players and is designed according to the poker standards. Like most poker rooms, the site features a number of Table tournaments, single and ring.
Shachar Schalka, RummyRoyal CEO commented, “It was not clear to all where Rummy would fit in with all of the poker, casino, backgammon and bridge sites, but today we can say with confidence that Rummy is the closest product to poker from all of the multi player games available in the market, with the perfect combination of skill and luck. The fact that it has only gained in popularity over the years and that the players are familiar with the games makes Rummy the next big market in the gaming world. After one year online it is apparent that the Rummy room will withstand the test of time.”
RummyRoyal offers many variations on the game, including Gin Rummy, Traditional Rummy, Oklahoma Gin, Kabooki 40 and Rummy 51. Two to four users may play a game at a time using two decks with jokers.
Over 250,000 players registered an account at RummyRoyal this year alone. According to reports, the highest concentration of players is from the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Germany, Romania, Spain and the Netherlands.
