**1) GAME WIN (Hand winning)**

When the winner wins the game by one of the Win Types described below, the winner wins the Pot, which is the total of all antes contributed by all players when the game starts (minus Table Fees; see below for details).

**2) WIN TYPE PAYOUTS**

Depending on the Win Type, the winner will win an additional amount from each of the losers according to that Win Type (which is deducted from the loser’s Table Balance at the end of the game), as indicated in the Win Types section below.

**a) Win By Tongits (40%)**

If a player discards his/her last card and has melded all of his/her other cards to the table, including by connecting to opponents’ or the exposed card sets (sapaw), then the player wins by **Tongits **(this is similar to declaring Rummy with the discard rule). A golden ribbon with the word TONGITS is displayed in the Win Result Screen.

- If the winner wins by Tongits, the winner wins an amount equal to 40% of the original ante from each of the losers, along with any applicable Additional Payouts as described above.

**b) Win By Deck Runs Out (40%)**

If all 52 cards in the deck have been used and a player has not already won by any other win type, the player with the lowest number of points in his/her hand wins (points are displayed to the left of the hand and are calculated by adding up the values of the cards in hand, with Ace always being one and all face cards being 10).

- If the winner wins by Deck Runs Out, the winner wins an additional amount equal to 40% of the original ante from each of the losers, along with any applicable Additional Payouts as described above.

__Deck Runs Out, Tie Rules:__

- In the event that 2 players have the same number of lowest points when the deck runs out, the player who drew the last card in the deck will be the winner of the tie.
- In the event that 2 players have the same number of lowest points when the deck runs out and neither of them chose the last card in the deck, the player to the left (clockwise) of the player who drew the last card in the deck will be the winner of the tie.
- In the event that all 3 players have the same number of points when the deck runs out, the player who drew the last card in the deck will be the winner of the tie.

**c) Win By Draw (20% or 50%)**

If a player thinks his/her hand has fewer points than any of the other players, he/she can initiate a Draw (under certain circumstances; see How to Play for more info on Draw). If a Draw is initiated by a player, the other players must choose to either Fight or Fold.

If a player chooses to Fold, he/she automatically loses the game and must pay the additional Fold amount described below and any other applicable payouts. If a player chooses to Fight, he/she challenges the Draw to see who has lower points.

When all players choose to fight/fold, those who choose to Fight will have their points compared against the player who initiated the Draw. Whoever has the lowest number of points in his/her hand wins the applicable Draw award form the other players, along with any applicable Additional Payouts as described above.

**3) ADDITIONAL PAYOUTS**

In addition to the winning the Pot and Win Type payout, if the winner has any of the following combinations in his/her hand at the time of winning by one of the Win Types described below, the player will win these additional amounts from the losers (which is deducted from the loser’s Table Balance at the end of the game):

**Wild Card (20%):**At the top of the game room there is a Wild Card designator that will display a K or an A (King or Ace, respectively, and is referred to as the Bonus Card in the Win Results screen). If the turn direction is clockwise, the wild card is an Ace; if counterclockwise then the wild card is a King. For each wild card of any suit the winner has in his/her hand or melded on to the table, the winner wins an additional amount equal to 20% of the original ante from each of the losers.**Secret (20%):**If a player attempts to meld 4 of a Kind aka Quadra to the table in one play, the system will ask if the player wants to keep it as a Secret . If**No**is chosen, the 4 of a Kind are melded to the table in the traditional manner and no additional winnings are awarded to the player for melding the 4 of a Kind. If**Yes**is chosen, these four cards act like an internal meld, meaning, they count as if the meld was placed on the table in all other cases, but the cards appear to stay in your hand and are not visible to other players as a meld. If the winner has a Secret, the winner wins an additional amount equal to 20% of the original ante from each of the losers.**Escalera (20%):**If the winner is dealt 5, 6 or 7 cards in a straight FLUSH (a.k.a. ESCALERA), meaning sequential cards of the same suit (e.g. King of Hearts, followed by Queen of Hearts, followed by Jack of Hearts, followed by 10 of Hearts, followed 9 of Hearts), and melds this escalera to the table, the winner wins an additional amount equal to 20% of the original ante from each of the losers.**Burned (40%):**If a loser gets BURNED, meaning he or she has not melded any group of cards to the table or created a Secret when a DRAW is initiated or the DECK RUNS OUT, that loser must pay an additional amount equal to 40% of the original ante to the winner.*The only case where a Loser will pay both a Burn and Fold is if the Winner initiates a Draw and the Loser has no melds on the table or a Secret in their hand*.**Fold (20%):**If a player leaves the game before it is complete, that player will pay an additional amount equal to 20% of the original ante to the winner for Folding.
