Along with providing online free rummy games to play, we at JungleeRummy want to enlighten you on the different variations of online rummy games. You can opt to play Indian Rummy online, but you can also try to play other variations like Bing Rummy and Gin Rummy, which are equally exciting as Indian rummy.
Bing Rummy is believed to have been invented in the mining towns of Alaska. Like other variations of rummy, Bing Rummy is played with 2 to 8 players and two standard 52-card decks are used without Jokers. The game starts with a player cutting the deck, also known as ‘cut for a deuce’, and distributing 14 cards to each player. All the remaining cards are then placed face down to form the draw pile and the top card is opened to form the discard pile. Just like the way you play Indian Rummy online, players need to draw a card from the draw pile, and discard a card to the discard pile. However, what makes Bing Rummy different from Indian Rummy online is that a player cannot meld on the same turn in which they draw or pick a card from the discard pile. The first time a player melds, he/she has to play at least three sets, for example, K♥ K♠ K♦; 8♣ 9♣ 10♣; 3♥ 3♠ 3♣ 3♦. During the first meld or anytime later, a player can play cards on any other meld on the table.
When a player melds all the 14 cards, the other players count the points in their hands. Face cards carry 10 points, Aces have 15 points, and other cards have the same points as their numerical value. The total is added to the running score of the players, and if the score exceeds 76, the player has to buy in to play again.
