As one of the leading providers of rummy, another skill game that has been part of Indian culture for centuries, we at Junglee Rummy are excited and elated to be associating with a highly skilled kabaddi team like Puneri Paltan and the game of kabaddi, which needs skills to win, just like online rummy. We look forward to an exciting PKL season and wish the entire team all the very best.” He added, “We’ll keep offering the biggest online rummy tournaments, running the biggest promotions, and forming partnerships and associations with some of the biggest names to further expand our brand reach and catalyze our growth.”
