If you want to gain a win in online rummy, you have to make sure you polish your skills well and utilize them strategically on the tables. If you are a new player with basic skills and want to upgrade your skills in this game of 13 card rummy, the first and foremost thing to do is to play more games, be it practice or free games. When you become better and better on practice and free tables, you can try your hands on some of the advanced online rummy strategies listed below:
The discard section in online rummy can give you the basic knowledge on how the game is going. You can know what your opponents are discarding and even predict which cards they are looking for to make their meld. By having eyes on the discard section you can make your opponents work hard for their cards by discarding cards they don’t want. By the time the opponents pick cards from the closed pile and make meld; you can try to complete your game.
Joker cards in online rummy should be played effectively if you want to increase your winning ratio. Always try to complete your pure sequence first and later you can place the joker cards on incomplete sets or sequences. Also, try to discard any cards that are close to joker. Nobody wants to make a pure sequence with Joker cards inside it and so it is safe to discard any cards that are close to them and your opponent might not pick them too.
Most players discard high value cards at the start of the game. You can also do the same until your opponent picks your high value card; which suggests he might have either completed his sequence or set with that card or still trying to complete the meld. If he picks your high value card in online rummy, don’t throw another card close to the high value card as he might be looking for the same.
