Rummy, like poker, can refer to one of several dozen variations on one of the world’s most popular card games. It’s had a long love-affair with notorious high stakes gamblers – the late Stu Ungar, for example, was an unmatched gin rummy player.
RummyRoyal was launched during the second half of 2007 and has since gained popularity among online players and gaming operators alike – the site is now a thriving rummy-playing community.
RummyRoyal.com CEO Shachar Schalka says: “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 site offers advanced multi-player rummy games for players of all standards and affluence. Like online poker rooms, RummyRoyal includes Multi Table tournaments, single table tournaments and ring tables. It also caters for everyone’s favourite form of rummy, be it Gin Rummy, Traditional Rummy, Oklahoma Gin, Kalooki 40 and the most popular of all, Rummy 51 (kalooki), played by 2-4 players using two decks of cards including jokers.
