The New Bonus Release Model:   Updated : 27th Dec

The new bonus release model is aimed at ensuring that the process of bonus release is quicker and much simpler. It is no longer linked to the deposit but rather to the wagering amount. The new model requires players to wager Rs. 500 to get a bonus release of Rs.100. This means the bonus keeps getting released to the player at the rate of Rs.100 for every Rs.500 wagered until the bonus amount is completely released.

This is highly beneficial to players who earlier had to wager as much as the deposit amount to get just 1 chunk of their bonus.
The bonus amount released will be available for the player to "Claim" Once you claim this amount it will be added to your account balance and can be used for game play.

Given here is a table that will simplify the whole process and make it clear.

Option to change background theme and turning sounds on and off:   Updated : 28th Nov

If you are bored of playing with the same background, you don't have to be bored any more; Classic Rummy presents to you two new and exciting options. All you need to do is go to options and select the theme. To use this feature, you need to click on the options button. It is a drop down menu which has options of two background themes.

You have the choice to pick either one or try both before you make your choice. In any case you can keep changing the theme as per the mood you are in. Another aspect, the sound effects that accompany the game add to the thrill of playing, but in case you want to switch them off while playing, now Classic Rummy provides you with the option to do so. Like the feature for changing the background theme, this one is also part of the same drop down menu, just below the option to change the background theme. Often during the course of a game you find that the sounds that accompany the game can be disturbing to you or to others, then this option comes in really handy.

Game Summary:   Updated : 28th Nov

Did you feel that you had to rely on your memory to recall details of the game or that keeping track of the moves made by you and other players is difficult? Well, you need not concern yourself any more! Classic Rummy has come up with an option that will provide you the table game summary as you play. This button has been placed right next to the chat option in corner of the table.

All you need to click on this button and scroll back and forth to catch every nuance of the game as it progresses. Sometimes knowing what cards other players have discarded helps you in calculating the probability of your getting another similar card. Finding out this aspect of the rummy game will help you in getting rid of deadwood cards. Another important aspect that the game summary provides is that of letting you see what cards other players as well as you have others have picked from the open pile. This part of the data will offer you many important clues about the state of the game in context of the other players and also caution you about the cards you should retain just to keep others from getting it.

'Melding Cards' feature:   Updated : 14th Aug

Any serious Rummy player like you considers the proper melding of rummy cards as a pertinent feature because if you get that wrong then you are liable to get full count. We heard you loud and clear, hence. To ensure that the process of melding happens in a systematic and proper manner this new feature has been introduced. Within this new method, once a player clicks on the show button, he/she will be asked to confirm this by clicking on 'yes' or 'no'.

Once this is done, the 'declare' button starts flashing and the player is given time to group cards. On finishing this, the player can click on 'declare'. This way he/she has grouped cards, which will be shown to him/her and asked to confirm that this is how he/she wants to group the cards. On confirming this, the show will be evaluated and declared valid within seconds.

If you have been disconnected, you will get 45 seconds extra and then you will be put on "Auto Play" and the other player/s will be informed about this. During the Auto Play option, you can be rest assured that your turn in the game will be played automatically. A card will be picked and the same card will be discarded till such time you are able to start playing or somebody makes a show. Hence, allowing you to reduce your stress when you are away from the game for whatever reason.
