13 Card Points Rummy or 13 Card Rummy is the most popular card game in India, which is played with standard deck of cards with jokers and between minimum of 2 players. It is a draw and discard game wherein the players have to arrange their hand cards in valid sets and sequences. Rummy players can play 13 cards rummy game online for free and real cash on our site.
The basic objective of 13 card rummy online is to arrange the cards in such a way that you have at least two sequences, out of which one has to be pure sequence, and rest of the cards in sets and sequences pure or impure. The player who creates this sequence first has the option to declare.
The first player to fulfill the objective of the game wins.
Any player who arranges his/her cards into valid sets and sequences is eligible to declare the game. A player can declare the game by clicking on the ‘Declare’ button . After declaration, the player is required to meld (arrange his/her cards into logical sets) and then send them for validation. We at Adda52rummy.com provide a limited time to a player to meld, which is displayed on the meld box at the screen.
The player whose declaration is correct (the cards are arranged according to validation rule of Rummy) wins the game and gets the penalty points of other players. On the other hand, if the melded sets and sequences do not fulfill the validation criteria, then the player has to pay the penalty of 80 points for his/her invalid declaration. However, if the validation is correct, then the other players are asked to meld their cards after which the points are calculated. In rummy cash games, points are calculated depending upon the multiplier of the game. These points are added to the bankroll of the winner, i.e, the points lost by other players are gained by the winner.
Note: In online rummy games, there are situations when a player does not get even a single chance to pick a card as someone else declares before his/her turn comes. In such a case, the points deducted from that player’s account are equivalent to ‘Middle Drop’ deduction, i.e, he will have to give up maximum of 40 points to the winner and if his calculated points are below 40, then actual points are deducted.
