Rummy Royal Licensing and Regulation
RummyRoyal is located in Cyprus and to the best of our knowledge is self regulated. Nowhere on their website is any information given about licensing, third party auditing, or anything of the sort. One of the FAQ questions listed on their website is: “Can I trust the site”. Here a long answer about not having a financial interest in game, and player security is mentioned, yet no details are provided about licensing or regulation. The fact of the matter: Most online gambling companies are unregulated. This does not mean that thet’re fraudulent; in fact, most of the trusted gambling websites in the world, especially those servicing the US market, are set up offshore and are unlicensed. We do advice some degree of caution; however, while Cyprus does not issue gambling licenses, they are known for having strict laws and for holding gambling companies accountable for their actions. Over the past three years, RummyRoyal has developed a solid reputation and there are no known missed payout complaints, nor are there any serious allegations regarding unfair play.
