Jokers

Jokers are shown in red and can be one of the following:

Siya Gid
The player picks the joker from the flower wall. He or she can pick one directly at random or roll the dice and chooses the joker from the flower wall.
Up/Or
A card is picked from the flower wall and the jokers are the numbers in the same suit surrounding the card. If 1 or 9 is picked the jokers are 1,2 and 8,9 respectively.
First Bunot
Your first draw is your joker.
Bingaw-bingaw
Any consecutive odd or even in the same suit. They need to be declared before you draw your first bunot.
147/369/258
Any of the numbers in the same suit for a total of three jokers. These jokers do not need to be declared.
Any Pair
This joker does not have to be declared. Kang does not count for four jokers.
Any Paningit
These jokers have a missing tile in the middle. For example, 1 and 3 can be jokers because they are missing a 2 for a complete chow.
Any Pong
Any three of the same tile.
Any Chow
Any three tiles of the same suit in consecutive order.
One of each Suit or 3 of a Kind
Jokers are the same number from all three suits. For example, your three jokers can be a 2 balls, 2 sticks and 2 char.
No Joker
Yeah. No Joker.

Common game events

Chow - Three tiles of the same suit in consecutive order. You can take the discarded tile of the player on your left to complete a chow.

Pong - Three of the same number of the same suit. You can take a discarded tile to complete a pong from any player. It takes precedence over a chow.

Kang - Four of the same number of the same suit. You can take a discarded tile from any player to complete a kang. It takes precedence over a chow.
If you are using the kang as part of a 7 Pairs major ambition hand, do not take another tile. If you are using it as a set of three, draw another tile.
Secret - If you get a kang using only your draws, you can turn them face down and declare you have a secret. You then treat it as either part of 7 Pairs (do not draw an additonal tile) or as a set of three (draw another tile).

Segasa - When you get the fourth for your already declared pong by bunot.

Mahjong -
5 sets of three and 1 Pair
7 pairs and 1 set of three
