Points Rummy is one of the most played rummy variant and undoubtedly one of the easiest. The points rummy game is played with usual 13 cards which are dealt to each player competing. The objective of the game is to make melds (sets and sequences) so that the total point value in your hand turns zero. The first player to complete his sets or sequence and declare the game is the winner. All other players will have points carried by the cards in his/her hand. The winner takes home cash prizes which is the sum of points of opponents multiplied by the pre-decided rupee value for points.
Deals Rummy is another very exciting rummy variation which is played with virtual chips. Each player competing in a deals rummy game is assigned with a specific amount of chips. In deals rummy, the deals are pre-decided and each player will have to try to win as many deals to grab the chips from the opponents. At the end of all the deals, the player with maximum chips wins cash prizes. In order to join a deals rummy game, the players need to pay an entry fee. The numbers of deals are pre-decided and your winning depends on the entry fee you paid multiplied by the number of players you played with.
Pool Rummy Games
Pool rummy is another exciting variation of rummy which works on the principle of elimination. An entry fee is there to join the pool rummy games and fixed maximum allotted point limit is set – 101 and 201. The game is played just as other rummy variations (make at least one pure sequence, sequences/sets). The player who completes the objective of the game first is declared the winner and will have zero points in his hands. The players who fail to complete will be assigned with points carried by the cards in their hand. If any player crosses the point value limit (101 or 201) is eliminated from the game. The game continues until all the players are eliminated.
