Introduction

With RummyCircle.com, Play Games24x7 pioneered the thriving online rummy industry where it is now the market leader. Now, Play Games24x7 has set its eyes on the rapidly emerging mobile games space in India. With over 250 million smartphone users today, and numbers projected to cross 500 million in the next 2-3 years, we see tremendously exciting opportunities in this space.

To capitalize on this opportunity, in late 2014 Play Games24x7 set up a new division called Ultimate Games. Today, Ultimate Games employs close to 50 people with a product development team of over 25 people. We have kept this team separate from our 150 people strong team in Mumbai that drives RummyCircle.com to allow it to operate unencumbered and move at the pace and in the direction best suited for success in this space. In 2018, we plan to foray into various other games.

At Ultimate Games we bring to the mobile games space over 6 years of experience with RummyCircle, and close to two years of experience with our first social game - Call it Right - which can be played on Facebook, Android, iOS and the Yahoo Games portal. In our first two years we have already released 4 titles, one of which is in the top 5 grossing games on Google Play store and another in the top 20. We are now very strongly positioned to do in the Indian mobile games space what we have done with passion for the last several years across geographies and channels - provide awesome online game play experiences.
