RummyCulture, an online gaming platform, announced today that it has created a Guinness World Record for organising the biggest online rummy tournament.
The tournament, “Sunday Mega Blockbuster” which was held on March 19, saw more than 215,000 participants. With this latest feat, the company has broken its own record of hosting a tournament with 1.09 lakh players back in July 2020.
Guinness World Records Adjudicator, Rishi Nath said, “We at Guinness World Records would like to congratulate RummyCulture and Gameskraft Technologies Private Limited on achieving the record for the “largest online rummy tournament. As the online gaming industry continues to grow, we are excited to see new records and achievements of the future.”
Speaking on the achievement, Senior VP of Technology at Gameskraft, Rahul Goyal said, “We applied our learnings from past experiences to ensure high availability, instant scalability and fault tolerance in order to handle a sudden influx of over 215,000 participants during the tournament start.”
“We optimised every component of the technology stack and gradually scaled our tournament over the last four weeks to host the world’s biggest online rummy tournament,” he added.
The parent company of RummyCulture, Gameskraft, is also focusing heavily on developing the online gaming sector in India. The company recently partnered with the West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences to establish a centre for online gaming, technology and sports law.
According to the vice-chancellor of WBNUJS, the centre will concentrate on legal studies of the fast-growing online gaming market in order to protect consumers from being exploited. Online gaming is quickly becoming a popular activity for people of all ages, the VC said.
