Is it legal to play rummy for cash at MastRummy.com?
Playing rummy is legal to play for cash in India. It is legal because Rummy is considered or treated as a game of skills and is considered as a business activity and it is protected under the Constitution of India.
In 1996, the Supreme Court of India declared that any game or competition where chances of winning the game depend on the noteworthy point of talent is considered as legal and is not treated as ‘gambling’.
However, the players from Assam and Orissa are not allowed to play rummy for cash. As according to the state laws of Assam and Orissa playing rummy for cash is not legal. Hence, MastRummy does not allow the players from these states to play rummy for cash. But, they can still play our practice games for free. We will permit them to play for cash in the future when their state law is amended.
