Multi Table Rummy Tournaments at RummyRoyal
Roughly every hour a new multiple table tournament starts at RummyRoyal. The smaller buy-in tournaments and freerolls generally attract up to 300 players per event, where the higher buy-in tournaments generally attract 25-50 players. Of course this depends on the type of tournament and the hour per day, as tournaments in the early weekday mornings attract less players, and big tournaments with guaranteed prize pools attract more players. Each month RummyRoyal offers a large prize pool guaranteed tournament (usually $30,000 or more). This tournament cost is $100 to buy-in direct, but there are many opportunities to win a seat for as little as $3.25.
