Our Rummy Services
We provide our users/players with an excellent opportunity to enjoy our multiplayer rummy games 24x7. Using our seamless software and IT services, you can play online rummy, a game of skill, with other online rummy players on Rummy.com.
Our Services are only intended to allow you to play rummy for the sole purpose of entertainment. Playing online rummy is legal in India, but Rummy.com will in no way be responsible or liable for any acts of gaming, including but not limited to real money gaming, that may take place outside our Website/Mobile App. Moreover, the state laws of Tamil Nadu, Meghalaya, Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Odisha, Sikkim, Nagaland, and Telangana do not permit playing cash rummy games, depositing cash to play cash rummy games or withdrawing cash from one’s rummy account, so we do not offer cash rummy games or tournaments to players residing in or logging in from the aforementioned states.
On Rummy.com, you can play 13-Card Pool Rummy, 13-Card Deals Rummy, 13-Card Points Rummy, Spin & Win, and Rummy Tournaments. You can play both free and cash rummy games on Rummy.com. However, people living in or logging in from Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Odisha, Sikkim, Nagaland, and Telangana are not permitted to play our cash games/tournaments as the aforementioned states do not allow playing real money rummy games.
