What are Rummy Tournaments?
Rummy tournaments are offered in the knockout format identical to the skill-based competitions like T20 Cricket, Wimbledon and French open tennis tournaments. Winners in one round move to the next round and so on till a final winner emerges. All players have a skill rating based on their past performance. This skill rating is determined using the US Chess Federation rating system and is updated after every tournament.

Identical to Wimbledon and the French open, this skill rating determines the seeding for players in each tournament they play, which in turn determines who they will play. All tournaments have a skill rating range associated with them. Players have the choice to decide what tournament they would like to play based on their skill rating and the permissible skill rating range for a tournament. We offer two types of tournaments under this format. Learn more about rummy points system.

Absolutely! All games offered on RummyCircle.com (formerly Games24x7.com) are games of “skill”. The relevant law in India is absolutely clear that, unlike games of “chance”, games which substantially require a player to apply his skill are absolutely legal.
In 1968, the Honourable Supreme Court of India ruled that games like rummy, chess, bridge and carom are games of skill making them perfectly legal under the current laws.

If you are accessing this site from Assam or Orissa, we hope you will enjoy our practice tournaments. However, the law in these two states is unclear on playing games of skill for cash prizes. You are therefore prohibited from playing cash tournaments on www.RummyCircle.com (formerly Games24x7.com) from any of these states.
