While the financial markets face meltdown & global recession seems inevitable, people and governments are in fear & anxiety.

Games and corona
As people stay indoor all day & have nothing much to do, there seems to be a sudden spike in the online gaming sector. In a good way though these games help people cope up with their anxieties and help them stay home which in turn helps the whole community to fight against this Corona pandemic.
Indian gaming companies also are getting ready to take on the challenge which lies ahead of them, with more registrations and more players becoming active on their platforms, they are working day in day out to provide the best gaming experience to their users.

We experienced a 30% surge in T1 traffic over the last week. The number of games played and time spent on the app grew to almost three times, recording an all-time high”.
A surge of Online Traditional Indian card games
Every Indian family has its fair share of card-playing memories locked up somewhere safely on their minds. As an Indian guy myself, I have some beautiful childhood memories of playing cards with my extended family on summer vacations.
Popular card games such as Rummy, Poker & Betting are now integrated into online sites and mobile apps which helps us connect to those memories. These games have become hugely popular because most of the gaming sites are giving out attractive Real cash Prizes.
