If you play Rummy games on your mobile or computer but don’t win, you may be feeling demotivated. Indian Rummy is clearly a game of skill and not of chance so winning or losing the game should be directly related to how well or how poorly you play. If you have a good strategy, you should be winning frequently. But if you are not, you might be having difficulty in trusting the Rummy site you play at.
You are unable to develop a high degree of trust if you feel that the website is tampering with the game by doing any one of these things:
Changing Cards Rummy websites use gaming software which should automatically deal cards on a random basis to all players at the table. This means that the cards dealt are fair and not rigged. Also, once the game begins, the cards that are drawn should not be changed. Let’s say for example, you need a 3 of diamonds to declare and the next card in the draw pile is also a 3 of diamonds, but when you draw the card, it is changed to some other card which is useless to you. In this case the software is rigged.
Highly Skilled Players at Your Table Online Rummy is a multiplayer game where you play against other real players. It is difficult to assess the skill level of players at a Rummy table unless you play a few hands with them. Sometimes, you may have felt that you are reasonably good at the game but lose to better skilled players. It could lead you to believe that expert players are planted by the website so you end up losing to them. This thought may cross your mind especially if you win regularly at tables with smaller stakes, but loose at high stake tables.
These scenarios may cause to feel as though you are a victim. However there are ways to ensure that you play at trustworthy Rummy sites. Here are some things you should be looking for in a good Indian Rummy site:
INDEPENDENT SOFTWARE PROVIDER This is the most important qualification for a FAIR website that offers Rummy games for cash. If the Rummy site does not own the game software, they cannot cheat! In this case the software maker is an independent entity which only licenses the software to the website that offers the game. A good way to illustrate this is with an example. An exam paper set by the board is completely unknown to the students, but one set by their own teacher can be guessed. So, an operator who is only offering the game but does not own the software cannot tamper with the cards before or during the game.
COMMITTED TO FAIR PLAY As a player, you should also seek out Rummy websites that carry a Trust or Random Number Generator (RNG) certification on their websites. This certification is proof that the game has been tested for randomness and fair play by an independent and impartial authority. The certification should be current.
OTHER PLAYER FEEDBACK The internet is truly a wonderful thing. You can read the feedback of other players on several forums and social media. Both unhappy players and satisfied ones post comments regularly through these means. Independent review sites can also provide information in this context. Take testimonials posted on the Rummy site itself with a pinch of salt as they will only give a one sided view.
