The Supreme Court of India in 1968 has declared that rummy is a game of skills. Also, in 1996 the Supreme Court of India had stated that competition or games where success depends on significant amount of skills is not considered as ‘gambling’, despite the fact that there are some elements of chance, rummy still preponderantly remains as a game of skill and may be considered as a game of ‘mere skill’:

“A game of skill, on the other hand – although the element of chance necessarily cannot be entirely eliminated –is one in which success depends principally upon the superior knowledge, training, attention, experience and adroitness of the player. Golf, chess and even Rummy are considered to be games of skill. The Courts have reasoned that there are few games, if any, which consist purely of chance or skill, and as such a game of chance is one in which the element of chance predominates over the element of skill, and a game of skill is one in which the element of skill predominates over the element of chance. It is the dominant element –”skill” or “chance” — which determines the character of the game.”
