Different Types of Free Rummy Games

There are many variations or formats of rummy. On RummyCulture, you will find Points, Pools, and Deals formats, all of which follow different sets of rummy rules and offer different challenges. Each player starts with 5 lakh chips, which are used to play free games.

Points Rummy

Points is a popular format of free rummy in RummyCulture. It is one of the faster variations of rummy online, as there’s only one deal in each game.

Each point is equal to 1, 10, or 20 chips. Your total Buy-In would depend on the maximum points you can lose in a game.

For example, let’s say in a 6-player game, 1 point = 10 chips, and you can lose a maximum of 80 points.

So, your Buy-In would be: 80 × 10 = 800 chips.

If you drop as soon as the deal begins without drawing a card, you lose 20 points (or 200 chips, in this case). Dropping midway would cost you 40 points (or 400 chips). Sometimes, dropping is a strategic move used by pro players to minimize their losses if they are not confident with their hand.

The winner (the player who makes the first valid declaration) gets chips worth all the remaining players’ points.

So, in the end if the combined total of the losing players’ points is 200, the prize would be: 200 × 10 = 2000 chips.

Since this game is dependent solely on individual points, winnings can vary in each deal.

Pool Rummy

In RummyCulture, Pool rummy comes in 3 formats: 61 Pool, 101 Pool, and 201 Pool. There is no limit on the number of deals; players are eliminated from the game when their score reaches 61 (in 61 Pool), 101 (in 101 Pool), or 201 (in 201 Pool). These games have a fixed Buy-In and the prize pool is calculated as follows:

Total prize pool = (No. of players) × (Buy-In)

So, if 6 players play for a Buy-In of 25 chips, the prize pool would be: 6 × 25 = 150 chips.

The winner takes the full prize, or, in a 6-player match you may get an option to split the reward with the remaining players. This option is only available when 2 or 3 players remain on the table and ALL of the remaining players have to accept the proposal to split for it to happen. The prize is then divided proportionately, based on who is leading with the least number of points.

For example, if the prize pool is 150 chips and now 2 players remain, they may get the option to split the prize based on their individual points. If both players accept the proposal, they can both take some portion of the winnings and the game ends.

RummyCulture offers you the option to rejoin in case you lose a game. You can rejoin by paying the entry fee of that game again. However, the rejoin option is only available if all the remaining players have less than 45 points (in 61 Pool), less than 79 points (in 101 Pool), or less than 174 points (in 201 Pool).

Your joining points will be equal to the player holding the highest points in the game + 1. For example – if the highest point is 20, you will rejoin the game with 20 + 1 = 21 points.

Deals Rummy

RummyCulture offers 2 formats of free Deals rummy: 2 players-2 deals and 6 players-3 deals. The Buy-In for both of these formats is 250 chips. Here too, the total prize pool = (No. of players) × (Buy-In)

So, if 6 players participate, the prize pool would be: 6 × 250 = 1500 chips.

In this format of rummy, the number of deals in one game is predetermined and all the players start with the same number of points.

The points at the beginning of the game are calculated as: (No. of deals) × (

Maximum points a player can lose in a single deal).

So, for a 6 players-3 deals format, all players would start with 3 × 80 = 240 points. Similarly, for a 2 players-2 deals format, both players would start with 2 × 80 = 160 points.

At the end of each deal, the winner gets points equal to the ungrouped cards of the remaining players. Players lose 20 points when they drop on their first move, and 40 points when they drop midway.

The winner is the player with the highest number of points at the end of all the deals. But unlike Points rummy, the winner takes all and there is no option to split the winnings.
