When the table is set up, each player pays his wager (2.50-10 ℂ). The player with the highest number of points is the winner, and receives the entire wager. If two players have an equal number of points at the end of the game, the amount is split equally. The wager is also split between the remaining players if one of the players leaves the table before the game is over.

The player must give 0.50-1 ℂ to the bank for every lost game.

Tournament Skat

The number of participants is unlimited

36 games are played by the rules of the international Skatordnung (ISkO).

The so called "Abreizgeld" - an additional entry fee - for the first to third lost game is 0.50 ℂ, and from the fourth lost game on, 1 ℂ.

Sundays at 10pm, a jackpot tournament is played, in which the jackpot is distributed as a percentage to the tournament winner and other prize winners.

Furthermore, a so-called "2,000 jackpot" is in play. He who finishes the tournament with at least 2,000 points, wins it.


0.005, 0.01 or 0.02 ℂ are charged per point and charged immediately after the game. The bank retains 5% of the turnover.

The maximum win which you can achieve independent of the value of the game is 10 ℂ (20 or 40 ℂ) as the declarer, and 5 ℂ (10 or 20 ℂ) as the opponent.

The maximum loss during a game is therefore 10, 20, or 40 ℂ. These are also the amounts you must have in your account.

Should a player drop out before the end of the round, the following rules apply:


With the donation button, you can give the opposing team the remaining cards. As a declarer, you can always autonomously donate. Partners must agree to donate.


As a declarer, you may show your cars to your opponents and thereby ask them to donate.

Should one more trick be played in the opponents favor, all tricks since the cards were shown will be counted towards the opponent.
