There is no doubt about the fact that Indian culture is rich in every aspect, be it cultural, entertainment, or innovative advancements. Though international casinos offer the usual slots and table games to players, they also focus on providing innovative gameplays and always adding something new to their gaming list. Local games like Teen Patti and Andar Bahar, which are both dice and card games, are gaining popularity abroad owing to the fact that they are new, interesting, and fun to play. Teen Patti is a three-card variation of brag, which is a prevalent entertainment source for the locals, especially during festivals where they play these games with their family members.
Teen Patti is the most popular out of these two, which has been around for years and played by millions of Indians as a recreational activity. This game is still prevalent in rural areas, but it looks like it has grown a steady audience globally as well. The game itself is immensely popular in India, which is why it does not surprise us why it has become popular outside the country.
The game Andar Bahar has also caught up with Teen Patti, becoming the other Indian gambling game popular with international players. We would also like to add that Rummy is also catching up slowly in the race.
These games have the quality to keep you intrigued for hours, and here are the factors that have made the card games so popular with international casinos.
1. Advanced Technology
The factor that could make it possible for international players to know about this card game is through online casinos. The technology has made it possible for players to enjoy the game from anywhere across the world. In fact, these international casinos also offer interesting and innovative variants of this card game to make the gameplay further interesting.
In fact, technology has advanced so much that online casinos nearly offer the same experience as brick-and-mortar casinos. You will also not miss land-based casinos because, due to area constraints, they only offer a limited number of games. On the other hand, online casinos can offer you hundreds of games with tons of variations without any restrictions.
2. Simple Gameplay
Casino players love gameplay variations, but too many complicated rules can make them lose interest in the game as it becomes difficult to understand the game. Games like Teen Patti and Andar Bahar are easy to play, as the rules are clear and simple.
Teen Patti is a game played with three cards that involves luck as well as strategy. There are a set of rules involved in the gameplay that you can easily understand. To win, you have to show the hand that is of the highest points compared to the other players.
Andar Bahar is a game of pure chance where the dealer deals a card face up, and the player needs to bet on one of the two piles of cards known as Andar (inside) or Bahar (outside). Then the dealer starts dealing cards from the alternate piles one by one until the card that matches the card that was dealt initially by the dealer is drawn. The winning pile is the one where this matching card appears, and if you have guessed right, you win.
3. The Popularity of Live Casinos
The next factor that actually gave these games the fame they deserved is their introduction in live casinos. Live casinos are known to offer classic table games such as Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, and Poker. Still, as casinos are always innovating to attract more international players, they also introduced local games like Andar Bahar and Teen Patti.
Live casinos offer a better experience and thrill of playing these games with live dealers as compared to the other game version. The dealers are either sitting in a real land-based casino or a studio and are stationed in front of a live camera with HD quality streaming to make the experience look real.
4. International Casinos Offering Gameplay for Global Players
International casinos, in order to make profits focus on goal players from around the world. The best way is to provide local gameplays to players from different regions. As India is the 2nd most populous nation after China, it is no surprise that Indian local games are being promoted in international casinos to attract more players from India. But these games are not just played by Indian gamblers, but also international gamblers find it interesting, making them popular.
Teen Patti and Andar Bahar are already available in many popular international casinos, but we believe this is only the beginning of their rising popularity. The simplicity of the games with a medium chance of winning along with interesting variations is the reason why more and more international casinos are offering these games to their players. Also, the availability of these games in live dealer casinos makes the entire experience exhilarating, which players enjoy experiencing.
