"Is it legally right to Play Rummy Online at Asli Rummy ?"

The answer to this question is affirmative as the games that are on this site are skill-based games. When you take the laws in connection to gambling, then you will be able to ascertain that in India there is no restriction on games that require skills. When you study these laws, you will realize that betting and wagering on games that are based only on chance and not on skills would come under the purview of gambling.

What is more?

In 1968, the Supreme court of India specified that Indian rummy games are based on skill and the game needs the players to think and make judgments to play. That is why utmost care has been taken to make sure that we are on the right side of law and the games here are in keeping with laws that are applicable in India.

In another judgment in 1996, the Supreme Court also stated that (i) competitions where success depends on substantial degree of skill are not "gambling" and (ii) despite there being an element of chance, if a game is preponderantly a game of skill it may be called a game of "mere skill".

But in some states of our country like Telangana, Assam, Odisha, Nagaland & Sikkim, the law states that laws that apply to gambling have no clear exemption when it comes to games of skill. All games on this site are not available to players from states in which the law does not permit them to play cash rummy games.
