What is Andhar Bahar?

Andar Bahar, also known as ‘Katti’, is a traditional Indian card game, of which the outcome relies heavily on luck and educated guessing. There are two sides on the table – Andar (or left) and Bahar (or right).

Basic Rules

In Andar Bahar, a single deck of cards is used, and the odds in this game are 50 – 50. The player has the option of either choosing ‘Andar’ (left), or ‘Bahar’ (right) spot on the table. Once the betting spot is chosen, 13 cards are dealt on the table, from which the player has to choose one card. The player then has to correctly choose the spot where the selected card would appear. A minimum bet is then required for the game to begin.

Game Terms

Andar – Andar refers to the left spot on the table.
Bahar – Bahar refers to the right spot on the table.

Placing bets in Andar Bahar

Once the dealer says, “Place your bets, please”, the players are given a few seconds to choose their desired card from the pack. Cards are then placed alternatively on Andar and or left and right spots), and if the number on the dealt card matches the selected card number, the game ends.
When the cards are dealt, if the first card is drawn from a black suit, and is either a Clover or a Spade, then the card dealing starts from ‘Andar’ (or left) spot. If the first card is drawn from a red suit, and is either a Heart or a Diamond, the card dealing starts from ‘Bahar’ (or right) spot.
Additionally, a player can also bet against the dealer card. The betting choice appears in alternate games on JeetWin.
All the results are based on the numbers on the cards, and not on the suits. If there are multiple players playing the game, the game will continue until all the players have either won or lost.

Increasing the betting amount

The betting amount can be increased during the game, by clicking on the chip of higher value, and then clicking on the chosen card.

Placing additional bets

Additional bets can be placed by clicking on the desired chip, and then clicking on the card. While placing the additional bet, the table maximum can be placed, and the final bet amount has to be confirmed to proceed with the game.

What is Teen Patti?

Teen Patti is a popular Indian gambling card game just like poker. It is normally played in a group of 3 to 6 persons and uses a 52-card pack without jokers. Each player is dealt three cards face down. Before the cards are dealt, the boot amount is decided and collected from each player. The boot amount is the minimum stake amount put in the pot, which is the money kept in the centre of the table. As the game progresses the pot money grows and is won by the winner of that hand. Winner is the player who remains in the game till the completion of the hand and has the best hand or the highest hand based on the cards ranking

Ranking of the cards

  • Trail or Set (three of same rank),
  • Pure sequence,
  • Sequence (or run),
  • Color,
  • Pair (two cards of same rank), and
  • High Card

Playing Teen Patti

Each player contributes the boot money and gets three cards facedown. Now it is the turn of the player next to the dealer in clockwise direction. The player has option to place a bet without seeing the cards (blind) or see the card. When the player sees his card, he/she can play chaal or may have other options depending upon the progress of the game. A player who places a blind bet is referred to as the blind player. A player who places his bet after seeing the cards is referred to as the seen player.

Blind Player

To be blind player, you must not see your cards. You have options to play Pack, Blind and Show if available. To play Blind put the bet amount in the pot. The Blind bet amount is equal to the current stake amount or twice the current stake amount. The current stake amount, in case of the first player, is the boot amount. Thus if the first player is a blind player, the player must bet amount equal to the boot amount or twice the boot amount.

Stake Amount. The bet placed by a blind player becomes the stake amount for the next player while half of the bet placed by a seen player becomes the stake amount for the next player. In case of the next blind players, the bet amount can be equal to the stake amount or twice the stake amount.

A blind player can ask for a Show only when there is one opponent remaining in the game. This is a blind show. After asking for show, the cards of both the players become visible and the winner gets the pot.

Seen Player

A seen player can play Chaal, Pack or may have other options. The other options that may be available to the seen player are Show and Side Show. Once you have seen your cards, to remain in the game, you must play chaal unless you select any other available option.

(a) Chaal.
To remain in the game, a seen player must play Chaal or Side Show if available. For chaal the player must put the bet amount in the bot. The bet amount for a seen player is equal to twice or four times the current stake amount. If the previous player is a blind player, the stake amount for next player is amount bet by the player. If the previous player is a seen player, the stake amount for next player is half the amount bet by the player.

(b) Side Show.
A seen player can ask for a Side Show. Side Show means that you wish to compare your cards with the cards of the previous player. You can do this only if the previous player is also a seen player and there are one or more other players still in the game. For Side Show you put amount equal to twice the current stake in the pot. Your request for the Side Show is conveyed to the previous player. The previous player has option to accept or deny your Side Show request.

If your Side Show request is accepted and the previous player has better cards than you, you must pack. If your cards are better than the previous player, the previous player must pack. After one of you have packed, the turn passes on to the next player.

If your Side Show request is denied, you do not see each other’s cards and both of you remain in the game and the turn passes on to the next play
Limited Stake and Unlimited Stake Tables
When you play Teen Patti for the first time, you play on a limited stake table. On the first limited stake table that you play, the boot amount is 2, you can play maximum 4 blinds, the maximum Chaal that you can play is 256 and the Pot limit is 2048. When the Pot limit is reached, all players still in the game are forced to show their cards and the winner gets the Pot.

In the next level limited table, the the boot amount is 4, you can play maximum 4 blinds, the maximum Chaal that you can play is 512 and the Pot limit is 4096. Players who have played many hands and have many chips play on higher level tables.

How to Play Baccarat?

1.Know that you can bet on either of two hands.

One is the Banker’s hand, the other is the Player’s hand. A player may bet on either hand. Bets must be placed on either the Player or Banker before cards are dealt.

2.Know how cards are dealt.

Two cards are dealt to both the Player and the Banker. A player or casino operator holding the shoe slides one card out and places it face up in the Player’s box on the felt table. The next card, the first of the Banker hand, is placed in the Banker’s box on the table. The house then deals another Player card, then the second Banker card. The dealer’s first round consists of two cards for both the Player and Banker.

3.Announce the point total of both of sets of cards.

Tens and face cards all are worth zero points; all other cards are worth their face value, with the ace worth one point. If a total is more than 10, the second digit is the value of the hand. For example, a 9 and a 6, which total 15, make up a five-point hand. In order to win, your bet must be on the hand that totals closer to nine.

4. Understand the “natural” win.

If in the first two cards dealt, the point total is 8 or 9 for either the Player or the Banker, this is called a natural win and the game is over. Bets that have already been placed are cashed out.

5. Determine whether the player gets a third card by looking at the point totals.

The Player hand is completed first. A total of 8 or 9 for the Player will get no additional cards. The Player stands on totals of 6 or 7. On any other total, 0-5, the Player draws a third card, unless the banker has 8 or 9, in which case the bank hand wins with no further draw.

6. Know the rules governing the third card for the Banker.

If the Player stands pat (or draws no new cards), the Banker draws with a hand total of 0-5 and stays pat with a hand total of 6 or 7. All other hands are dependent on the third card the Player draws:

  • If the Player’s third card is 9, 10, face-card or Ace, the Banker draws when he has a 0-3, and stays with a 4-7.
  • If the Player’s third card is 8, the Banker draws when he has a 0-2, and stays with a 3-7.
  • If the Player’s third card is 6 or 7, the Banker draws when he has a 0-6, and stays with a 7.
  • If the Player’s third card is 4 or 5, the Banker draws when he has a 0-5, and stays with a 6-7.
  • If the Player’s third card is 2 or 3, the Banker draws when he has a 0-4, and stays with a 5-7.

7. Once all cards are dealt, calculate the winning hand.

The winning hand is that which totals closer to 9. In the event of a tie, neither hand wins or loses. Sometimes a commission is paid out of winnings when betting on the Banker’s hand.

What is Dragon Tiger ?

Dragon Tiger is played with Standard English decks of 52 cards. No jokers or wild cards are used, and the game is most often dealt from a blackjack shoe holding six or eight decks. Unlike most casino games, Dragon Tiger players do not play against the dealer. Instead, like baccarat, the object of the game is to correctly choose which hand, either the Dragon or the Tiger, will receive the highest card. Unlike baccarat, where the player or banker draws additional cards, Dragon Tiger is actually closer to the game of Casino War, as just a single card is deal to the Dragon spot and then one to the Tiger spot. No additional cards are drawn.

Placing Bets

After placing a wager on either the Dragon or the Tiger, the player waits for the dealer to place the cards on the layout, face-up. The highest card wins, but there are two important rules to consider. First, aces are low, so the order of cards, low to high, is Ace-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-J-Q-K. In addition, regardless of whether the player wagers on the Dragon or the Tiger, if both spots receive the same rank card, such as 8 verses 8, the hand is a tie, and the house takes ½ of each wager. Otherwise the high card wins and the low card loses.

The casino would have no edge if it didn’t take something from each tie. There are a total of 86,320 possible outcomes for each hand. Of those, 6,448 result in a tie, which gives the casino an edge on the Dragon and Tiger wager of 3.73%. That edge is higher than Casino War, and much higher than baccarat.

Tie Bet

Players may also wager on a tie, which is any one of those 6,448 outcomes from the possible 86,320 hands. The standard payoff for a tie is 8 to 1, which gives the casino a very healthy 32.77% edge. If you have played Casino War, you know that the tie bet there pays 10 to 1, for a casino edge of about half as much, at 17.83% In fact, an online casino can pay 11 to 1 and still retain a casino edge of 10.36%

Big and Small Bet

Players may also wager on whether a particular card (Dragon or Tiger) will be Big (over seven) or Small (under seven). This wager has six cards as Big (8, 9, 10, J, Q, K) and six cards as Small (Ace, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). The wager wins if it is on the correct numbers, Big or Small, and loses is it is not. The wager also loses if the card drawn is a 7. The casino has a 7.69% edge on this wager.

Suit Bet

Players may also wager on which suit will be drawn. The wager pays 3 to 1 on a correct suit and loses when the suit selected does not appear for a chosen hand (Dragon or Tiger). Again, the casino derives its edge by taking the wager when a 7 appears.

Strategy

There is little strategy at Dragon Tiger, but many players bet along with the last winner, hoping to catch a streak of hands dominated by either the Dragon or Tiger spot. In addition, if the number of decks used is offered by the online casino and the software shows when the decks are being shuffled, there is the possibility that the casino edge can be reduced by counting cards, much like blackjack players do to turn the tables on the casino.

A player can keep track of either (or both) suits or big and small cards to gain an edge. Keeping track of the suits played is easiest, since there are only four possibilities. Any time three of the four suits have appeared more than a single suit, it would be an improved wager to bet on that one suit.

For instance, if a single deck was used and 10 cards were played and all of them were hearts, spades, and diamonds, then wagering on the suit of clubs would be a very good bet! There would be 13 winning cards to come and only 29 losers. If you were dealt all remaining cards, you would lose 29 bets, and win 13, each paid 3 to 1 (39 bets), and your overall win would be 10 units. Players may make their own charts to find winning parameters for other numbers of decks used. An eight deck shoe is most likely to be encountered and it is likely to be shuffled after four decks are used.

What is Roulette?

Roulette has offered glamour, mystery, and excitement to casino-goers since the 17th century. The game is popular in casinos worldwide in part because its rules are relatively simple and easy-to-understand. However, roulette offers a surprising level of depth for serious betters.

Basic

1. Know the equipment.

Roulette is French for “little wheel.” On this wheel are 36 numbers and a 0; on some American tables, there is a “00.” A croupier sends a small white ball spinning that will eventually land on one of the numbers. Bets are placed on the table, correlating with the slots the ball can possibly land in.

2. Know the different “inside” bets.

In roulette, you have to anticipate the number or type of pocket on which the ivory ball is going to land. To do this, there are a range of bets you can make.”Inside” bets, or bets placed on specific numbers, generally have higher paying odds.

3. Learn about “outside” bets.

These bets do not involve specific numbers and are made on the outside of the number map, hence the name.[4]

4. Realize your odds.

At every roulette table (and at every game in the casino itself), the house always has an edge. All bets at both wheels (French or American) are paid at odds that would be true if only the 36 numbers were on the wheel. Their advantage comes from to 0 — and the 00 in America.[5]There are theories as to how you can improve your odds, but they don’t work. However, there are some variants that change how the favor lies.

3 CARD POKER

Hot table game Three Card Poker has gained popularity not only because it’s fun, but because it’s also easy to learn. Three Card Poker is like getting two Las Vegas casino games in one. Not only can you play against the dealer, you can also win based on how good your cards are.
The object of the game is to make the best poker hand possible with only three cards.

HOW TO PLAY 3 CARD POKER

To start, the player places an ante wager and/or a pair plus wager, betting that they will have a hand of at least a pair or better.
Three cards are then dealt face down to each player and to the dealer. You are only playing the dealer and not other players at the table.
The player will then look at his hand and determine to place a play wager (equal to the amount they put as the ante wager) to pit his hand against the dealer’s hand or not. Optimum strategy says the player should “play” all hands greater than Queen, Six and Four and fold all hands worse.
If a player folds, the hand is over and the dealer will collect the player’s ante wager and pair plus wager. If the player places a play wager, the cards will be turned over to determine if the player has a better hand than the dealer.
If the dealer has a hand of Jack-high or worse, the play wager is returned to the player. If the dealer has a hand of Queen-high or better, both the play wager and the ante are paid out at 1 to 1 if the player has a better hand than the dealer.
If the dealer’s hand is superior, both the ante and play bets are collected. The pair plus bet is determined completely independent to what the dealer has.
