What is the procedure to join a rummy tournament on JungleeRummy.com?
The total number of players in our rummy tournaments varies from tournament to tournament, depending on the number of players registering to compete. Each table has the capacity to accommodate 6 players maximum. You will be seated at one of the many tables and will be allocated a fixed number of tournament chips. The winner of the tournament will win the rummy chips from the losing players according to the points scored by them.
Each player gets 30 seconds to make his/her move on each of his/her turns. If a player does not complete his/her move within the allocated time of 30 seconds, the game continues and the next player gets his/her turn.If a player misses three consecutive turns, he/she is eliminated from the rummy tournament with the score of a middle drop. A player can finish the game following the normal procedure of a rummy game where a card has to be discarded to the Finish slot and the other players have to show their cards.
When the pre-decided number of deals is over, the players are assigned ranks according to the number of their chips. The player with the highest number of chips gets the highest rank and progresses to the next round to compete with the winners of the other tables. For example, if 12 tables are competing in a rummy tournament with 6 players at each table, 12 winners from 12 tables (1 from each table) will proceed to the next level to compete with each other.

The player who declares first after forming a valid hand gets zero points. All the face cards are worth 10 points each and the other, numbered cards carry points equal to their face value. All the wild and printed Jokers carry zero points. If a player drops on his/her first turn, he/she gets 20 points and if he/she drops after the first pick, he/she gets 40 points. A player who declares without completing the objective of the game gets 80 points.
Losing players get points equal to the total of the points carried by the cards in their hands. If a losing player has formed no pure sequence, the points of all the cards in his/her hand are added up. If a losing player has formed two sequences out of which one is a pure sequence, then only points of the cards that are not arranged in sequences and sets are added up. A losing player can get a maximum score of 80 points. And, a player who misses three consecutive turns gets a middle drop of 40 points and is automatically dropped from the game.
How are tournament chips and their value calculated at the end of a tournament?
Rummy chips carry one point each in every rummy tournament.
Only one winner wins all the chips in the tournament at the end of the tournament.
Total Winnings = Sum of total points of all losing players X 1 tournament chip.
For Example, if a player wins a game of six players and five losing players lose with 20, 30 , 40 and 50 points, the winner will get 140 rummy tournament chips.

A player can lose by a maximum of 80 points, irrespective of the cards in his/her hand.
How are the winners of each game and round decided?
A rummy tournament starts with the allocation of a fixed number of chips to each participant. In each round, the players need to play a fixed number of games and they are ranked according to the number of tournament chips they have at the table. After a round ends, the player who has the highest number of chips at a table proceeds to the next round.
What if 2 players have the same score in a round? Who progresses to the next round then?
In case of a tie, the player who won the last deal progresses to the next round. In case the last deal was also tie, the player who won the deal before that progresses to the next round and so on right to the first deal.
