Deals rummy is a popular variant of the entertaining rummy game. It is played with a standard deck of 52 cards. In this variation, players play for a fixed number of deals, and the player with the maximum chips at the end of the final deal becomes the winner.
The game is played between 2 to 6 players, and each player is dealt a fixed number of cards at the beginning of each deal.
In Deals rummy, players contribute a fixed amount of money to a shared pool at the beginning of each deal, and the winner of each deal takes all the prize money.
Points are assigned to each card in the deck, with the numbered cards having their face value in points and the face cards (the ace, king, queen, and the jack card) carrying 10 points each. The Joker card has zero points (wild card joker and printed joker) in the rummy universe.
At the end of each deal, the players count the points they have in their unmelded cards, and the player with the lowest points wins the deal.
The game continues this way until all the deals have been played, and the player with the most chips at the end of the last deal is the winner.

If one player gets more than 80 points in 2 deals, then the winner can also be decided in 2 deals. If there is a tie between 2 or more players at the end of the 3rd round, then the players play a tie-breaking round to declare the final winner.

If there is a tie between the players at the end of the 6th round in the Best of 6 Deals Rummy game, a tie-breaking round is played to declare the final winner.
Each player plays the game to arrange all their cards in the required sequences and sets in the fastest possible time. Every player on their turn picks the top card from the deck and discards a card from his/her hand-held cards simultaneously. Players need to constantly think and meld their cards to make valid pure sequences and sets for a successful show.
The Joker can be used with any card to complete the player’s sets and impure sequences. A successful show will mean that the player will get zero points. It is crucial to understand that each card will carry a particular number of points onto itself and using his/her Rummy skills, the player must try to reduce the number of points.
