When I was getting bored playing candy crush on my Android HTC handset, I thought I should check new free apps to download and play on my phone. The day was good as the Internet speed was excellent to download the Games on my phone. I searched free apps on Google Playstore and found a collection of gaming apps…. the Apps which draw my attention were Teen Patti Apps from Junglee Games and Octro Inc. I downloaded both the apps to learn this game. I found Junglee Teen Patti App way better than the Octro version of the game. The basic different was of the game play features on which Junglee Teenpatti was way ahead and provided a very good gaming experience. I played the game on day one and then got engrossed in some other work. On day two, I got a missing you message from the App and gave me bonus chips to play on day two. I loved it, it was amazing and I started playing the game again. It was quick and easy game to play and you must try this amazing Teen Patti App on your android phone.

 

Here is the post dedicated to the most played card game in our household parties that is Rummy. I remember from childhood, whenever our all kins gather in a family get together, we used to play rummy in the night and it was fun playing rummy and tambola, while eating some home made snacks and enjoying the thrill of the game.

My Mom has been playing Rummy from quite a long time as she is regular member of the colony kiti parties. So thats how I learned playing rummy right from childhood. Now, whenever we get free and through a party on weekends with friends we play rummy just for fun and excitement and when we win the money, that goes back again into the party. 🙂

From quite sometime now, John and I came to know about online rummy websites in India but I haven’t had a time to look upon and play on those portals. There were many, to name a few sites such as classic rummy, Junglee rummy, rummy circle and many more. Basically they are running skill games on their websites and earn by getting certain amount as rack. Not a bad idea to play rummy online just for thrill and excel our skills that can be used in the parties. However, these websites not only offer games but conduct rummy tournaments as well. I have recently came across one google Ad about World Rummy Tournament. Well one of the famous lottery brand in India, PlayWin is conducting a World Rummy Tournament which is sponsored by an online rummy website JungleeRummy.com.

World Rummy Tournament

Earlier, I was reluctant to check that Ad. Yesterday only when I clicked the Ad, I came to know about the details and amount of prizes thats been on offer in the tournament. Its a huge prize pool of Rs. 1 Crore thats too the company is claiming is Guaranteed. The main fascinating thing about the event is that they are conducting the event on a Cruize Ship sailing from Malaysia and Thailand. I love to visit Malaysia and Thailand whenever we get some bonuses and once every two years we visit Malaysia or Singapore. So far we have travelled Five South Asian countries and the experience was awesome.

I thought I should give it a try and started searching for details about the rummy tournament by Playwin. Then I came to know that they are two ways to get into the tournament. One is to get the direct tickets from their World Rummy Tournament portal dedicated for sailing WRT tickets online and Second way is to play rummy qualifier games on their website and compete with other rummy players. Since the ticket cost was bit higher for my budget ( it was costing around 1.2 lakh Indian Rupees) though. therefore, I started playing for the online qualifier tournaments, being held on jungleerummy.com and crossed stageII level of the tournament. I am still playing for the final round and hopefully I may make it upto the final event.

The experience of play online is in itself very much exciting because  its like a war with your friends and other competitors to secure your tickets for the final. I am relishing it at the moment, the website also props up by giving bonuses from time to time that keeps me stick to the game and hone my skill for the final event.

I will post my experiences on  a later date once I got selected for the final event. till then good buy guys.. write to you soon.

P.S. For all my friends, try this World Rummy Tournament Qualifier once, We don’t know we may sail together from Malaysia to Thialand. Keeping Play and have fun. … Shaila

Bunol (Spain): Spanish revellers have pelted each with 113 tonnes of ripe tomatoes in an annual food fight. Town hall says an estimated 40,000 people took part in the hour of messy fun in the village of Bunol near Valencia. The ritual dates back to the 1940s.

Some warriors in Wednesday’s battle wore swimming goggles to protect themselves from the acid sting of projectiles in the form of pear-shaped tomatoes. Others swatted them away with tennis rackets.

Afterward, many washed off in a nearby river while crews hosed down a town painted red.

Nine of 10 Canadian households now has a computer, and four of 10 have some sort of video game console, according to brand new statistics from the Entertainment Software Association of Canada.

The results will be published in an annual booklet scheduled for release next month.


The new stats show that seven of 10 Canadians aged 18 to 34 say they’ve played some video game in the past month. Of them, 34 per cent say they play video games every day, for an average of 7.1 hours per week.

It all goes to show that video games have become mainstream media to most Canadians.

“What we’re seeing is growth in markets you wouldn’t have seen five years ago,” says Nicole Helsberg, a spokesperson for ESAC. “For instance, Nintendo has been actively courting the non-traditional gamer, especially women. So what they’re doing is developing product specially aimed at women, which is why we’re seeing growth in all these areas.”

The Kyoto-based Nintendo has been dominating the Canadian market with its Wii, which just hit the one million units sold mark in July. Comparatively, Canadians have bought 870,000 Xbox 360s and 520,000 PlayStation 3s.

But Canadians don’t just play games, they create them as well.

The gaming industry employs 10,000 people across the country, and that number is growing by eight per cent each year.

They’re quite good at it too — consider that of the top 100 bestselling titles of 2007, 21 were made in Canada.

“The growth of the industry in Canada has to do with the talent we have here,” Helsberg says.

“A lot of it has to do with the way developers have spawned from bigger studios. You look at a market like Vancouver, EA Games sets up shop, people go to learn the trade, and they go off and form their own development trade.

“We have great ties to the educational system in Canada, which is teaching young people the skills to thrive in this industry. Which is why the video game industry is the fastest growing entertainment industry in Canada.” Read more… source: Canada.com

DUBLIN, Ireland- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/723772/mobile_games_cons) has announced the addition of eMarketer’s new report “Mobile Games: Consumers Don’t Pay to Play” to their offering.

Mobile gaming is tricky ground for marketers. On one hand, games have some of the best engagement metrics among mobile content categories. On the other hand, that engagement is not translating into sales.

The Mobile Games report analyzes the trends behind why consumers are so excited about playing and so hesitant about paying.

Consumers like mobile gaming. Research shows they spend several minutes a session with a mobile game, and frequently re-visit to play some more. Moreover, consumers consistently report gaming is one of their favorite mobile activities. But, so far, marketers are unsure of mobile gaming’s potential as an advertising platform.

However, in developing markets, mobile phones are already the de facto gaming platform, and millions more consumers will start experiencing mobile games with the introduction of new, improved handsets. Marketers would do well to keep an eye on mobile gaming for these reasons alone.

Mobile Gamers and Mobile Game Spending Worldwide, 2007-2012 (millions)

Key questions the “Mobile Games” report answers:

– How big will mobile games grow worldwide by 2012?

– How great will the opportunity for ad-supported mobile gaming become?

– What are some of the drivers for mobile games?

– What roadblocks are slowing growth in the category?

– How does the US market compare to other worldwide markets?

– How do mobile phone and PDA games compare?

– What is the difference between preloaded and sideloaded games?

– And many others

International IT provider Atos Origin has won a new contract with the UK Gambling Commission to implement systems that support the Commission’s licensing and compliance work for arcades, betting shops, bingo halls, casinos, gaming machine suppliers and lotteries, as well as British-based gambling websites.

The company will implement Siebel 8.0 to provide the Commission with a single, up-to-date view of each operator for both office-based and mobile staff, it announced this week.

This new CRM platform will provide Commission staff with the necessary regulatory information and intelligence at the right time and in the right place, says Bill Butler, Director of Corporate Services at the Commission.

“Following a competitive process, we selected Atos Origin because it demonstrated that it understands our needs and has the capability and experience to deliver,” he said.

Anne Ware, vice president for Public Sector operations at Atos Origin, commented: “Having the correct information to hand at the right time is essential for all organizations. For the Gambling Commission, this new solution will help them to keep gambling fair and safe for all by making it easier to ensure that operators are fulfilling their requirements.”

The Gambling Commission is the independent regulator of all commercial gambling in Great Britain. It is an independent, non-departmental public sector body sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). Atos Origin has a long-standing relationship with DCMS, the UK Government Department responsible for amongst other things, Government policy on the arts, sport, the National Lottery and the 2012 Olympic Games & Paralympic Games.
