Full Review of Red Hot RummyRed Hot Rummy Company
Red Hot Rummy is one of the oldest online Gin Rummy communities, established in 2002, where players can gather and play for real money. Free money play is also offered. US players are welcome to join in free and real money play, as Gin Rummy is a game of skill, therefore 100% legal in the United States.
The software platform that powers Red Hot Rummy is provided in a 100% Flash, no-download format, compatible with all major operating systems, including Mac. The graphics are crisp and smooth with quick gameplay. Even a Dial-up connection runs pretty smooth on the Red Hot Rummy software. The speed of game play is determined more by the quickness of the players than the software. The Lobby is easy to navigate and user-friendly enough for a new player to find a seat at a suitable Gin Rummy table with ease.
Red Hot Rummy offers only the most popular online Rummy game, Gin Rummy. Compete against real players around the world for free or real money stakes. Each player is Rated with the Red Hot Rummy Skill Rating System. New players start as Rookies until winning enough matches to receive 1600+ skill points, where the rank upgrades to Amateur. 1750+ points grants Pro ranking. Be sure to play against someone of your own level to even the playing field.
For an added challenge, and convenience, the online Rummy site has added Bots. These Bots, short for Robots, are computer generated players, available to compete 24/7. Not only can players take on a Bot player to gain experience, they can compete for real money as well. If you want to begin playing immediately without waiting for a like-skilled opponent to appear, try taking on a Bot. Red Hot Rummy has ProBots as well, computer generated to use maximum strategy - watch out, these guys are tough!
Red Hot Rummy has added new skill games to its ring game and tournament line-up, including player-vs-player Blackjack and Backgammon.
This online Rummy community offers a decent schedule of daily and weekly tournaments, not just for online Gin Rummy, but for Backgammon, player-vs-player Blackjack and In The Grid, based on the outrageously popular game show currently airing in the UK.
The daily tournament schedule kicks off at 10am GMT, ending at 12:30 at night, with new tournaments starting every 15 to 30 minutes. These include regular tournaments and valuable freerolls held 11 times daily. Regular tournament buy-ins range from £2 to £10, but are most often £5. In The Grid is played as both Freerolls and Easyrolls. Easyroll tournaments cost £.50 to join. All tournaments have a max player limit, so players need to register ahead of time, especially for Freeroll competitions.
Weekly 'Big Tournaments' at the online rummy site are held on Wednesday and Sunday. Each Wednesday, a £2150 Freeroll Blackjack tournament is held, with a maximum of 256 players. On Sundays, players can enter two Backgammon tournaments, a £1500 Freeroll (256 players max) and a £1500 Easyroll. The Sunday Backgammon Easyroll is free to enter, but only offers 64 seats.
