Much like bingo did in the wake of online poker and
popular casino games, the skill-based card game of Rummy
is growing more popular day by day. The chief reason for
this is the continued expansion of online rummy
operations, most notably in the U.S. market, where the
game has hitherto only enjoyed moderate success.
But thanks to big names like
RummyRoyal.com, gamers can now get the same types of
playing incentives - i.e., large free cash welcome
bonuses - not to mention non-stop tournament action that
you would normally find at online casinos and poker
rooms. RMRoyal Media, which is the parent company of
RummyRoyal.com, is helping to expand the industry even
more with the recent launching of RummyRoyal.net.
Completely autonomous from it's .com namesake,
RummyRoyal.net is essentially a "play-for-fun" platform
designed to spark the interest of players and give them
a chance to learn rummy and enjoy live action tournament
play without putting any money on the line.
Specifically, RummyRoyal.net will be primarily catered
to Facebook users. In fact, players will be able to
connect to the interface through a Facebook application,
for the software was designed as a Flash platform. Yes
-that means no downloads necessary.
A company spokesperson for RMRoyal Media said that
user communities like Facebook is key to getting
word-of-mouth about online rummy and awareness of sites
like RummyRoyal.net and RummyRoyal.com. By the end of
the first quarter in the new year '09, the company plans
to get RummyRoyal linked up to the MySpace and Bebo
platforms as well.
Anyone who knows marketing, knows that the ultimate
goal is to get the .net players to cross over to the
.com platform and start playing with real money. That's
what Party Poker did with their .net and .com sites -
And it certainly makes sense to do so. Please read
