Games 24x7 is the first online company to bring games of skill with cash prizes to the large, yet under-served Indian market in a fun, light-hearted and friendly setting. Indias rich history and culture of games and the rapid growth of the Internet has presented us with a unique opportunity the opportunity to bring to people across India games they have always loved and enjoyed, but dont necessarily find the time or the friends to play with anymore. Competition, the joy of success and social connectivity form the backbone of our product. We kicked off this ambitious journey in 2009 with Indias most popular card game Rummy. Today, we are Indias largest online rummy site(www.rummycircle.com) and millions of players visit us every month to play for free and for cash prizes. We are funded jointly by international venture capitalists and a hedge fund that has made significant investments in the past in some of the most successful Internet companies in India.
The Games 24x7 Ethos At Games24x7 we are passionate about one and only one thing - providing the best possible playing experience to our players. We take immense pride in our work and believe that the best way to serve our players is by listening to them. We listen to the sound of every click that our players make or dont make when they are with us. We believe very strongly in experimenting, but in the true spirit of experiments, we insist that every new idea be either backed by data or be eventually provable by data.
Every experiment has at its genesis an idea. The Games 24x7 idea hierarchy is flat and new ideas can come from anywhere, but every idea goes through the same process vigorous debate, arguments, data validation, and every so often, from this grueling yet immensely satisfying process comes one addition to our product, operating or marketing strategy. This is the essence of life at Games 24x7.
The Games24x7 Business The Games24x7 business is powered by a proprietary multi-player tournament gaming platform built by our talented and passionate Mumbai-based development team. We are not to be confused with a game studio or a game development company. Games24x7 is not in the business of making or developing online games. Our gaming platform is secure, scalable, extensible and is at the heart of our business, supporting all aspects of the business operations. It is developed using JAVA and J2EE technologies. We currently host online multiplayer Rummy with entry fees and cash prizes using the proprietary platform. Despite the platform being feature rich in terms of its offering, we have barely scratched the surface.
The plan is to build a state of the art gaming tournament platform into which games of all types can be seamlessly integrated from single player leader-board type games to multiplayer knock out tournaments, round robin tournaments etc. This multifaceted platform will also incorporate social features, and could easily be integrated with Facebook and other social networks. We have the makings of what will be an industry-changing product in our hands. We are confident that the gaming industry in India will be seen as pre-Games24x7 platform and post-Games24x7 platform by analysts in the future. We will continue to invest to incorporate new innovations and capabilities into the core platform to ensure that our players receive a world-class experience. The Games24x7 Team Memb
