As an Indian gambler, no online casino experience is complete without a bet on Teen Patti and Andar Bahar. These traditional card games are deep-rooted in Indian culture and widely played throughout the country.
At online casinos, both games have been available to play against real dealers over a video stream for quite some time. However, up until recently, they have only been offered by those online casinos that are partnered with a live dealer company known as Ezugi, as well as a few more unfamiliar ones.
Since April, this year, this has changed. Andar Bahar and Teen Patti are now also offered by Evolution Gaming. This is fantastic news for Indian players for two reasons. First of all, this particular live dealer provider is the industry-leading one, known to deliver the highest quality experience to players.
Secondly, thanks to its great reputation and supreme standard, more or less all Indian online casinos are partnered with Evolution Gaming. This means that no matter which casino site you choose to play at, you will be able to play Teen Patti and Andar Bahar against a real dealer over a video stream.
Evolution Gaming’s Andar Bahar
If you know your Andar Bahar, the game offered by Evolution Gaming at casino sites will not come as much of a surprise. The traditional rules apply. Simply place a bet on the side which you think will win – Andar or Bahar.
A random joker card is placed face up on the table by the dealer. The remaining cards in the 52-card deck are then dealt face up one at a time, alternating between the two sides – Andar and Bahar. Whichever side matches the joker card first is the one that wins.
There is a twist to the game though. In addition to the normal bets, a bet can also be placed on the number of cards that will be dealt before a winning side is determined. There are ten options to choose from ranging from 1 – 5 up to 46 – 49. This itself may not be news to you.
However, the twist is that on every game round, a random number of these bet options will have their payouts increased. This twist makes it possible to win up to 4,000 times the amount you stake, which is pretty crazy for Andar Bahar.
Evolution Gaming’s Teen Patti
Played at online casinos, Teen Patti is not quite the traditional card game that you might be used to. This is not a competitive game played against other players, but a simplified version of it played against a dealer. In a nutshell, the rules are as follows:
- To participate, an ante bet is placed.
- Three cards are dealt to you face up.
- An option is given to fold or to place another bet in order to play.
- Three cards are dealt to the dealer face up.
- The two hands are compared and the best hand wins.
In this game of Teen Patti, the main goal is to beat the dealer by being lucky and receiving a better hand than him or her. However, you also want to win with as good of a hand as possible, as winning with a straight, three-of-a-kind or straight flush will pay you more.
Teen Patti by Evolution also comes with two side bet options known as Pair Plus and 6 Card Bonus. These allow you to win additional prizes from your hand which are handed out regardless if you win or lose against the dealer. These side bets can pay up to 1,000 times the amount you stake and are all about getting a specific hand, such as trips and a straight flush.
