Organized by RummyCircle.com, the Diwali Rummy Tournament this year offers the participants a chance to win prizes worth Rs 35 lakh. RummyCircle.com is India’s largest online rummy portal which has been holding Diwali Rummy Tournament for last six years. The seventh season of the tournament has special prizes for the winner and runners-up. The tournament would stretch over a month and conclude on 8th of November, 2015.
The Diwali Rummy Tournament would have multiple daily qualifier rummy matches from Monday- Saturday and a weekly finale on every Sunday where a participant can win cash prizes along with a ticket to the grand finale.
Contrary to the general notion of women being weak contenders at rummy, Gayathri, 35, of Andhra Pradesh was the winner of the last year’s DRT winning a cash prize f Rs 5.4 lakh along with a trip to Macau and Hong Kong.
Lingaraj, a software engineer from Chennai, and a runner-up to Gayathri didn’t know how to play Rummy and used RummyCircle.com as a platform to learn and hone his skills. He took home Rs 2.5 lakh cash prize and an all-expense paid foreign trip.
As per Saurabh Sinha, retention manager at RummyCircle.com, the latest format of the game will allow players to continue playing through the month and add to their Diwali winnings every day for the next one month, irrespective of whether players qualify in the first week or not.
