Expressing his excitement around the successful culmination of IRL, Mr. Sunit Warriach, CEO of CardBaazi, said, “Since we diversified our model from a mono-game app to a multi-game app, there has been a constant effort put to provide every user with a robust experience. Indian Rummy League was a step towards strengthening that promise to our loyal userbase and reaching the masses. Spurred by IRL, we have been growing at 20% QoQ, which is significant considering we revamped our new model of operation in November 2021. I would want to congratulate the winners for their continued perseverance throughout the duration of the league and we will continue to make IRL bigger and better to bring forth such talent to the Indian skilled card gaming community.”
