Nagaland grants first multi-game online license

Sachar Gaming Pvt. Ltd. is the first company to be awarded a license to operate multiple games by the state of Nagaland.

The company, which operates rummy website khelplayrummy.com, will be able to offer games such as poker, rummy, quizzes, auction, binary options, virtual team selection games and virtual sport fantasy league games, Glaws reports.

It is the sixth company to receive a license from Nagaland, though all the others were granted a permit to offer poker only.

“We are pleased to have received the license for online skill games from the Nagaland government. The license will bring greater credibility to our brand and ensure that our players feel safe and secure while playing on our website,” PK Jain, head of operations of Sachar Gaming was cited as saying.

Nagaland was the first Indian state to pass a specific law to regulate online skill games. It issued its first license to M/s K365 Web Assets Pvt. Ltd., which operates the online poker website khelo365 .com in December.

The other sites now authorized are Pokabunga, Pokerhigh and Club Empire.
