India’s Rummy Championship is an exposure that gives the feel of online rummy while coming face to face with the best of rummy players from the country. It acts like a bridge blending the rummy experience in both the offline and online world, perfectly. As rightly stated by IRC winner Mr. Ajit S H of Karnataka, “I started playing on RummyCircle about 9 years back. I won Rs. 1000000 in IRC held at the Taj hotel, Bengaluru. I really feel happy and it was an amazing and wonderful experience to win the big final. I won several tournaments and cash prizes on this site. It is the best online Rummy site as it is genuine, transparent, and quick in customer service. The real winner is RummyCircle as an ordinary man can win any amount of money here. Keep up the good services.”
One of the aspects that were of most prominence was offering the same gameplay experience as on the RummyCircle website. The game was structured in a way that players would enjoy rummy, just the way they do on the website or app. Further, a scoring software was used to calculate all scores and did away with the possibility of manual error completely.
Adding further, Co-CEO and Co-Founder Bhavin Pandya said, “We believe in offering our players a warm and stimulating environment, where they can interact and meet the top rummy players from India. The RummyCircle team is at the heart of this success, giving the time and effort needed to understand player requirements and thereby focusing on offering better tournaments each time.”
