What is Points Rummy? Top
Points Rummy is a singledeal game and players play for points. Points rummy is a popular variant of the
traditional rummy card game, played with a standard deck of 52 cards.
The entertaining rummy game is played between 2 to 6 players, and the objective is to score the least
number of points.
In Points rummy, players play for a predecided monetary value, and each game is played for one round
only. At the end of the game, the winner takes the entire pot of money.
The chip value can be predecided and the winner wins all the chips/cash at the end of the game, i.e. on
the declaration of a valid show. Thus the winning is the sum total of points of all the opponents
multiplied by the predetermined value of the points in rupees minus the rake.
Thus, Winnings = (Sum of all points that opponents get) X (Rupee value of the point) – Rake.

 Cards are dealt only once for each points rummy game in the rummy universe.
 The value of points is prefixed at the start of the game.
 An amount equivalent to 80 points is brought in by each player.
 Thus, the maximum required amount that the player gets to the table would be three
times the point value for that game. For e.g. if players decide Rs.1 as the preset value of a
point, the amount to get to the table would be 80 (max point) x Rs.1 x 3 times = Rs. 240.
 If the cash balance available in the player’s account is less than the maximum
required, i.e. 3 times the point value, then the player will sit on the game table with the
closest possible point multiple i.e. either 2x or 1x times the Point value with x being the
point value.
 Players who wish to drop out of the game before they play their turn (draw their
first card) tend to go out as First Drop with a penalty of 20 points.
 Players who play their first turn or number of turns (draw and discard) and wish to
drop out of the game at a stage earlier than the game show is referred to as Middle Drop. Here,
the player will get 40 points.
 Players who fail to meld any card when a show is called is referred to as Full
Count. In this case, the player will get 80 points.
 FirstHand Show: The declaration of a show when made by any player during the
‘first round of turn’ after the beginning of the game is called ‘First Hand Show’. For this, the
player is penalised with 40 Points.
 In First Hand Show, actual points of melds or 80 points, whichever is lower, will
be calculated for players who have played their first turn. Point calculations for players who
have not yet played their first turn will be, actual calculated points of melds or 40 points
whichever is lower.
 For a 13 Card game, a total of 9 jokers are used, 2 Printed Jokers and 7 wild Card
Jokers. For a 21 Card game, a total of 15 jokers are used, 2 Printed Jokers and 7 wild Card
Jokers, 6 Value card jokers.

Players need to make 2 Sequence:
1. One mandatory Pure Sequence (Straight sequence without any Joker) else it will be considered
full count.
2. One more mandatory sequence with or without a Joker card.

Other than the two mandatory sequences, the other cards can be melded into sequences or sets of
3 or 4 or 5 cards. Another additional pure sequence can be made but is not mandatory.

The player who calls for a valid show gets 0 points; other players get points that are a total
of the deadwood/idle (not used in valid sequences or sets) cards that they hold.
 The penalty for leaving the table is a Full Count, which is 80 points. The
equivalent of 80 points in Rupees (as predetermined) will be deducted.

dealt for the next round by default. Thus, the player can safely quit a table without incurring a
penalty.
