Online Tripoley tournaments are a great social activity based on this popular Rummy game. Players get to maximize their online gaming experience by making use of the ultimate online gaming rooms created through an integration of real life technical features as well as design elements. Online Tripoley tournaments, as well as Gin Rummy Tournaments, take place on a fun, playful and exciting platform in real time.
Online Tripoley tournaments are multi-player tournaments designed to enable a large number of players to compete with each other in order to win a share of the large pool prize. These tournaments take place in accordance with a predetermined schedule, whose specific commencement time and other relevant details are contained inside the Tourney Lobby.
This area provides Tripoley players with all the relevant information that they need to know about their particular tournament. Here, you get to learn about the name and ID of the tournament, its state, size and distribution of the pool prize, number of registered players, the exact time of commencement, remaining time for registration, the requisite buy-in amount, as well as the progress of the players throughout the tournament. You may also register here, or cancel your registration to a specific tournament.
The registration period for each tournament varies anywhere between a few minutes to several days. In order to register, click on the red “Register” button at the right hand side of the screen in the tournament lobby. A popup message will then prompt you to indicate that your registration was successful. You may cancel your registration by clicking on the “Cancel Registration” button as long as the tournament is still in the registration status. In such a case, the full buy-in amount will be credited back to your account.
Each tournament has a different buy-in amount while the Freerolls do not require any buy-in. This amount comprises the stake of the player for the tournament as well as a small fee taken for the facilitation of the tournament. The buy-in amount is taken from the account of the player upon registration. The pool prize that is shared amongst the tournament winners is collected from the stakes of all the registered players.
Once the tournament status changes to “Running” the tournament commences. You are then automatically transferred to a room to begin the first round of the tournament. Players are randomly assigned tables and seats, while their numbers are evened out on each table.
Each tournament has its own amount of starting chips, while all the players begin with an equal chips amount. As the tournament progresses, players lose and gain their playing chips in accordance with their performance during the various rounds. Once a player’s playing chips count is down to zero, they are eliminated from the tournament. The rank of the players still playing in the tournament is determined by these playing chips, although these have no value outside the tournament.
In addition to the playing chips, players are also ranked according to their Tournament Points. These points are accumulated during each round as follows: Winner – 3 pts; Second Place – 2 pts and Last Place – 1 pt.
Sharing the Prize
With the progression of the tournament, more players are eliminated as they continue losing all their playing chips. When the final round of the tournament ends, the last four players playing at the “Final Table” are ranked in accordance with their elimination order, while all others are ranked according to their Tournament Points. Each tournament has its own “In the Money” list which determines the number of players eligible for a certain share of the pool prize. Once the online rummy game tournament ends, these prizes are distributed amongst the relevant players whose final rank is then determined.
