As with most games created hundreds of years ago, the history of Teen Patti is a bit murky. No one can say for certain where or when the card game was created. What we do know is:
-Four of a Kind – that the 6 cards on the table will include four of a kind -Full House – that the 6 cards include 3 cards of 1 rank and 2 of another -Royal Flush – that the 6 cards will include same-suited Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and 10
If you’re new to this exciting gaming option, there’s no need to worry about complicated rules and gameplay. The Teen Patti rules are incredibly simple and straightforward.
The game is played with a standard deck of 52 cards, which means the Jokers have been removed. 3 cards are dealt to you, and 3 to the dealer after the opening bet. Your cards will be face up, and the dealer’s face down.
The objective is to play a hand strong enough to beat the dealer’s hand, which will be revealed if you decide to play the hand you were dealt. The dealer qualifies with a Queen or higher.
The winning hands on the paytable of games such as Teen Patti Gold are identical to the winning hands in Poker games.
It’s worth learning about the different moves you can make when playing Teen Patti games in our live casino online.
The first of them is the ‘ante’ (opening) bet, and it gets the action started. The dealer deals the cards after you place an ante bet.
Next, you’re faced with making 1 of 2 possible moves. The first is the ‘play’ option, and if you select it, you will place a play bet of 1x your ante bet. This is the move you would make if you think that your hand can beat the dealer’s hand. The alternative is to fold if you think that your hand is not strong enough to beat the dealer’s.
Whether played in live casinos online or with a Teen Patti download, some game rules include optional side bets that you can place when you place an ante bet. Some of the side bet options based on yours and the dealer’s cards combined include:
-Four of a Kind – that the 6 cards on the table will include four of a kind
-Full House – that the 6 cards include 3 cards of 1 rank and 2 of another
-Royal Flush – that the 6 cards will include same-suited Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and 10
Where can I learn how to play Teen Patti? – Right here! After choosing your bet size, place an ante bet. When all bets are in, the dealer will deal 3 face-up cards to the player position, and 3 face-down cards to themselves. Place a play bet if your hand includes a winning hand that you think can beat the dealer’s. The dealer’s hand will be revealed after you place a play bet, and it will be compared with yours to determine the winner of the round. The dealer needs a Queen or higher card to qualify. If the dealer doesn’t qualify, your bet will push.
Can I play the card game on my mobile device? – Yes, you can. The software that powers our Teen Patti games is compatible with Android, iOS, and Windows mobile devices.

Lowball – The (pay)tables turn, and the lowest-ranked hand is the one that wins. The best hand you could have in this variant is a mixed-suit 2-3-5.
Low/High Wild – In Low/High Wild games, you are guaranteed to have a Wild card. Your Wild will be your lowest or highest valued card.
Stud – To intensify the anticipation and suspense, the Stud variation of Teen Patti changes the way the cards are dealt. Your hand as well as the dealer’s will include some cards that are face up and others that are face down.
Best of Four – In Best of Four games, you will be dealt 4 cards instead of 3, and you then can select the strongest combination of 3 cards.
Wild Draw – The dealer will designate a particular number or royal card as the Wild, which can improve your chances of a better hand.
