Rummy is a game of skill and only skill as per the Indian Government. This game is played in various parts of India. People can bet and put money and if they win, they win lots of cash. With time Online Rummy is gaining popularity among card game enthusiasts.
The rules of the game
In a standard set of 52 cards, there will be 4 suits – Diamond, Heats, Spade and Clubs. Each suite has 13 cards each, that makes it a total of 52. There will be a dealer who deals the game. He/she is generally chosen by an act of dealing cards and choosing a card. The person who chooses the least card deals and distributes 13 cards to every player one by one. Once all the cards are distributed, the first card from the deck is kept by the dealer on top and this is open for everyone to see and the first player who starts will either pick that card or the closed cards from the deck kept aside. That person has to throw one card down (either the card he picked or any waste card that he does not require) and the chances go on. In Rummy each card carries the same points as the number on the card and the bigger cards – 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace carries 10 points each. Player has to bet an amount and try to make 4 pairs. The order of cards will be Ascending (smallest to highest). The player who declares the cards first and has the sets as per Rummy Rules is declared the winner.
Twist in the game
Another twist in the game is the use of Joker. There are 2 Jokers (Printed Jokers) in the game and if that group wants they can assign 3 more Jokers by selecting a card from the deck and turning it side down and keep the open card beneath the deck of cards which was kept aside. If this card chosen is a 4 for example, this 4 and the 2 extra jokers can be used Instead of any card in the pairs that people make (however, they will carry no points). Joker cannot be used in a Pure sequence (1 Pure sequence is mandatory to win). Jokers are called Wildcard by many.
Importance of a sequence
The sequence is a valid sequence only if 3 or more cards of the same suit are arranged in ascending order. A set is made with three cards or more with different suits but the same number on it. A person is declared a winner if he/she makes all the sets before others make it. People who do not win, their points are calculated based on how many sets were made when the winner finishes the game.
