Canasta has many variations, but in its essence, it’s a rummy-like card game where you create melds of cards of the same rank. Canasta Jogatina has two different game modes, classic and turbo. Play with 2 or 4 players and make many Canastas by melding at least seven cards of the same rank.
Check out some of the features of the Canasta Jogatina game:
- Classic or Turbo mode: Choose between Classic Canasta mode, with multiple hands and points adding up to 5000, or the Turbo mode, a quicker variation enabling you to play shorter matches!
- Partners: Choose between 2 or 4 players mode.
- 3 difficulty levels: Easy, Medium and Hard.
- Play on your own time: Game is automatically saved each turn, so you can close it and continue playing later.
- To err is human: Undo function so you can cancel mistaken melds.
- Make the game your own: customize your decks, background images and animation speed.
- Complete Stats: Delve into your match statistics and keep up with your results.
Canasta Jogatina is a wonderful pastime for the dull moments and an excellent way to relax in the evening after an eventful day.

The game is my favorite of all times but for the last little while I have had trouble with the cards on the far right side of my cards will freeze and I have to reboot to get them to work. Now the “Play Again” button has started to do the same thing. Reboot works but very troublesome. Also, why are they wasting wild cards on Canastas. Or using them for final play. They should not be discarded when you don’t need a discard☹️
Developer Response ,
Hello! We just released an update that fixes this bug! Please update your app to the newest version and don't forget to rate us again after testing it! Cheers <3
It seems the developer does not have any more than a very very basic knowledge of the game of canasta. The playing by the bots are many times very foolish. Such as, playing wild cards on a canasta that has already been made, discarding a wild card to go out, playing three wild cards with three other cards when one cannot make a canasta unless there are at least four regular playing cards. Not picking up the pile when a sixth or seventh card that has been discarded would give you a canasta. Another irritation is when your partner does not go down when it is obvious that the other partner is unable to do so. Or holding the cards for so long that the opposition goes out before you even get down, when it is obvious you had the count to do so. these are just a few of the things that have not been corrected and I see that there has been other complaints about this as well. I will continue to play because I’m used to getting around the obvious poor rule playing by the bots.
Love this game
While I love the game, I have to believe that whoever designed the game had only a rudimentary knowledge of the game. Am frequently amazed at how poorly the bots play. They play the wild cards randomly, (as does my partner) often ignoring the opportunity to make a canasta, discard cards that would give the opponent a canasta, though often that player does not know to pick up. I am also occasionally dealt a red three which I cannot get rid of. I see that many of my complaints have been made by other players as long ago as two years. Obviously, there is no plan to improve the game. I must add though, that the last canasta app I downloaded was far worse than this one.
