Two Sides of Online Rummy

The internet explosion has introduced a whole new world of online gaming which has swept across the world and has firmly created a niche for itself as a source of sport, enjoyment and entertainment. 

Skill-based games such as Rummy, in its online avatar especially, have been gaining widespread recognition in the last few years. The Supreme Court, having granted it legal status, and the ongoing pandemic has only helped in establishing Online Rummy firmly in India.

Rummy isn’t just a sport; it can be considered a life coach as well, provided one is an eager learner. A good rummy player needs to inculcate good observation skills, display excellent organizational skills, in addition to endurance, patience and the ability to adapt as well as change the strategy as and when the situation demands. These skills are essential in our everyday life too…don’t you agree?

At the same time, as the saying goes ‘every coin has two sides, let us too, discuss the pros and cons of Online Rummy; its popularity only seems to be growing in leaps and bounds.

The Pros

  • Rummy game does tend to get immersive, the cash rewards and other thrilling offers make it irresistible for hardcore enthusiasts. However, discretion is always the player’s responsibility.
  • Reluctance or non–acceptance by a certain segment of the society who believe sports shouldn’t be based on money.
