Much like how it has transformed every other industry, the internet has also revolutionised gaming. In India, online gaming first witnessed a boom when console and PC brought gamers to digital gaming platforms, back in the 2000s. The proliferation of smartphones, internet penetration, and digital payment portals helped online gaming grow. According to a KPMG report, the online gaming market stood at $290 million in 2016 and is expected to grow to $1 billion by 2021. From 120 million online gamers, the segment will see around 310 million gamers by 2021.
For the longest time, entertainment and action games that were widely enjoyed by the youth, dominated the scene. In recent years, we’ve seen a dramatic shift. Now, conventional action games are losing ground to skill-based card games.
The rising popularity of skill-based games
In a skill-based game, the outcome of the game depends on a player’s experience, knowledge, attention, and capabilities. A popular game of skill, Indian Rummy is finding a lot of favour among users lately. In recent years, the digital version of rummy has captured the attention of gamers around the country.
