Domino QQ is a favorite Poker game in Indonesia which is played with dominoes and dice. Dominoes look like small cards and to start the game you need to play with 28 double six-dominoes.
It is also called QiuQiu or Domino Indo.
The way to play:
To start with, all the players need to deposit some amount in the pot. Depending on the state or district that you are playing in, the amount that you deposit varies. If the minimum deposit is more, you can expect a high bet. After putting the chances, the players can play with three dominoes each. While dealing with the dominoes, the players need to check if there is any previous better bet. If yes, they can fold, call or raise. However, if there is no better domino set previously, then they are allowed to bet.
The rules change with each round and as for the first round, if only one player takes part in a bet, then he/she can grab the winning pot. They don’t even have to show their hand. If the chance is dealt with by more than one person, then all the players who have not traded till then will get to deal with the 4th card. This is where the final betting happens when all players are done with a bought with the 4th card. The first and second rounds have betting limits with second-roundhaving a higherceiling. In the final round, the game ends with all players who have not to fold showing their hands and the player with the best hand grabbing the winning pot.
The arrangement of Cards is unique in this game. They are arranged in pairs with pips on the cards being added in groups. After totaling them, the second digit of the two-digit number is only counted. For example, while adding the pips together if you get 18, justeight is considered. The highest pair that you can get is nine the reason for which it is called QiuQiu.
Apart from the highest 9, there are three other hands from which you can expect a higher score.
- High- when you get a total of 38 or more on all the total pips of 4 dominoes
- Low- when you get a total of 9 or below on wholenine pips of 4 dominoes
- Double-when you get all the four dominoes with doubles
If two players share straight or double then the player with the higher double wins. If two of them share only straight but no twins, then the playerwhoever scores the more topverticallifts the pot.
Though the game looks little confusing in the beginning, with a careful understanding of the rules, you can be a master in no time.
