ClassicRummy.com is owned and managed by Innopark India Pvt Ltd. The platform offers several opportunities for playing online rummy games for free. Players are encouraged to play for free till they learn the basics of the game.

The Gaming Interface
The animation or graphics are basic, but good enough to enjoy the game. The tables are viewed from the top, during game play and even when you watch the game being played. The fact that one can watch others playing is a great feature for beginners as they can see how the game is played and how people make their moves.
Classic Rummy offers various helpful tabs in the game play interface, such as Rules, Cashier, Report Problem, How to Play, Options, Scoreboard and Leave The Table. You can also check the discarded cards for each player with the help of a small button. The timer that runs for each player to make a move is located at the bottom right corner of the window. One can also use extra time if necessary to make a move.
There is a chat window for players to interact with each other. A Table Messages window, adjoining the chat window, explains the moves of each player. At the end of each game, the statistics for all players are displayed.
