10 Melded Cards + 1 Un-melded Card = GIN!

Let’s start with some Gin irrefutable Gin Mathematics:

·      There are 52 three-card melds of three of a kind - - that is 3 Kings, 3 3’s, 3 Aces, etc…

·      There are 44 melds of suited three card sequences such as 5, 6, 7 or J, Q, K.

·      The changes of extending a three of a kind is twice as likely as the chances of extending a three-card sequence.

Remember that statistic of 15,820,024,220. Now consider that you actually receive 11 cards in Gin Rummy Super, 11 cards to get a Super Gin also. Well, there are actually 60,403,728,840 possible 11 card hands – imagine if we added a 12th!

In-Play Math


Let’s consider the very first play. The odds of your opponent throwing a card you can use is less likely than you think.

Check this out:

Opponent Discard Odds Probability

King or ACE 6 to 1 0.141

Queen or 2 5 to 1 0.171

All other cards 4 ½ to 1 0.182

How useable a card may be will surprise you too? What are the chances a wild discard would be used in 3 sequences and 3 sets – 31/2 to 1! That chances of a wild discard only being useful for a single set is a staggering 20 – 1. Gin Rummy Super certainly offers plenty of ways to build a winning hand.
