Sameer Barde talks online rummy in India

Sameer Barde, chief executive officer of The Online Rummy Federation sat down with Asia Gaming Brief Managing Editor Sharon Singleton to discuss the outlook for his industry in India. Barde related that online rummy is growing at a remarkable pace in the subcontinent, but still faces challenges. The largest of the concerns is the movement in some high population states to try to ban online gaming, including rummy which has already been ruled legal by India’s Supreme Court as a skill game. The effort to educate both the public and policymakers about rummy’s status as a skill game must continue, he says.
