After his comments on online gambling apps that drew a fair bit of criticism, GOQii founder and nCore Games cofounder Vishal Gondal has been served multiple legal notices for defamation. At least six individuals (from six different states) — who claim to be rummy enthusiasts — have served legal notices to Gondal claiming that his social media criticism of gaming apps, likening them to gambling, have hurt their sentiments, and defamed their reputation.
Gondal had raised concerns on Twitter about the unchecked rise of various gaming apps built around games such as rummy, poker, fantasy sports, and other real money games. “Rummy, Teen Patti, RMG Fantasy etc are not Skills games they cause serious financial loss, addiction & death. Gambling is a poison pill served to the society in garb of skill game..Stop this,” Gondal said in a tweet on February 9, 2021.
