    • If the losing player has no pure sequence, all cards are counted.
    • If the losing player does not have two sequences, but has a pure sequence, only the pure sequence is not counted

    At the end of a Deal Rummy game, the winner wins as follows:

    Winnings =
    (Sum of all points that opponents get) X (Rupee value of the point) – Playship fees

    Example : If 6 players play a 2 rupee point rummy game and 5 players lose with 40, 30, 20, 10, 5 points then the winner takes 2*(40+30+20+10+5)= Rs 210 – Playship fees.
