ABOUT ANDAR BAHAR
The Andar Bahar casino game is based on the traditional Indian card game that originated from Bengaluru in the southern state of Karnataka. It bears some resemblance to the classic game of Dragon Tiger, but its simple interface barely scratches the surface.
Andar Bahar has been played in thousands of homes during traditional Indian festivals for over 100 years. It is far more than a simple Indian card game — which only makes you appreciate the gameplay even more. Because of its rich history, the Andar Bahar table game quickly became a must-have at online casinos. Online versions of Andar Bahar only skyrocketed the game’s popularity, thanks to talented game providers, like Ezugi and Pragmatic Play, for making it all happen.
While Andar Bahar may be a popular game in southern India, we understand that you may not have come across this Live Casino game before — but that’s what we’re here for. Are you ready to dive in? Great! Let’s begin.
As you start playing Andar Bahar, you’ll quickly learn that this card game is pretty straightforward, especially if you’ve dabbled in Dragon Tiger or Football Studio before. Either way, you’ll undoubtedly pick up the gist of it in no time. Bear in mind that, like all Live Casino games, Andar Bahar is a game of chance and there is no guarantee of winning.
Before we run you through the gameplay, take a look at the following terms:
- Joker: The joker card is the first dealt card and the card you need to match to win. Also known as the trump, house or middle card.
- Andar: It is the side that receives the first drawn card. “Andar” translates to “inside” in Hindi.
- Bahar: This side receives the second card drawn. “Andar baahar” directly translates to “inside outside” in Hindi, so “bahar” translates to “outside” in this case.
- Range: The number of cards that are drawn before the card that matches the joker appears.
The aim of the game is simple: all you have to do is guess which side, either Andar or Bahar, will match the joker card first. The round begins when the dealer deals the joker card, face up. Betting starts once the first card is dealt. So, you will then be given a limited time frame to place bets.
The betting options offered in Andar Bahar are similar to those offered in baccarat variants. You can place a bet on the Andar or Bahar side, and once all bets are placed, face-up cards are dealt by the dealer alternately into two piles until a matching card appears. The side that contains the one card that matches the joker wins.
ANDAR BAHAR CARD GAME — THE RUNDOWN
To give you a clearer idea of how a typical Andar Bahar game round would go, here’s a quick example:
Suppose the first card dealt (the joker) is a five of hearts, and the player bets on Andar. The dealer will then draw another card and place it on the Andar side first. If that card is anything other than a five, the dealer will draw a second card and place it on the Bahar side.
The dealer will keep alternately placing cards on either side until a card matching the joker card appears. The player earns a payout if the winning card lands on the same side they bet on. Bear in mind that the winning card does not need to match the joker by suit, only by its numerical value. So, in this case, the winning card can be a five of spades, diamonds or clubs.
The best part about playing Andar Bahar online is that providers like Ezugi and Pragmatic Play can totally elevate your gaming experience through avant-garde mechanics and cutting edge tech that you simply won’t find at land-based Andar Bahar casinos — side bets included.
These bonus bets are separate wagers from your original bet and are totally optional. But, if you’re looking to spice things up, then bonus bets are an excellent way to crank up the anticipation and add a little bit of complexity to the simple gameplay.
The range of bonus bets may differ between online casinos, but we’ll take you through some of the most typical options available. Ezugi’s games have a total of eight bonus bet options on the total number of cards, for example. Each one predicts the number of cards the joker will be hit in:
- 1-5 cards
- 6-10 cards
- 11-15 cards
- 16-25 cards
- 26-30 cards
- 31-35 cards
- 36-40 cards
- 41 or more cards
The payout and RTP vary between them.
On tables by Pragmatic Play Live, you can also place optional side bets on whether the joker and the first two cards on either side will form a straight, straight flush or flush. Other popular side bets include betting on whether the first card on a specific side will match the joker, or betting on how many cards will be dealt in total.
You may also find an Andar Bahar online casino site offering the Joker Prediction side bet and the Mid-Game Wager too.
The Joker Prediction wager is pretty self-explanatory. Andar Bahar table games that offer this stake allow players to predict either the suit or number of the joker before it is drawn. The Mid-Game wager allows players to place a wager mid-game, even after the joker and the first Andar and Bahar cards are dealt.
We’re sure by now you’ve picked up on how simple playing Andar Bahar online is, so let’s take a look at the basic rules.
As you take a seat at the live table, you’ll find a number of different coloured chips which you can use to place your wager. Each chip holds a different value, which may vary depending on the Andar Bahar online casino you play at.
The live Andar Bahar card game begins with the dealer randomly selecting the joker/middle card out of a single deck of cards. From there, you will be given a limited time frame to place a wager on Andar or Bahar. You can also choose to place a side bet during this stage, which may help boost your payout at the end of the round.
Once the betting time has expired, the dealer will place cards on the Andar and Bahar sides, Andar going first, and will continue to hand out cards on either side until one matches the numerical value of the joker. You will earn a payout if you wagered on the side with the winning card.
Always remember that, since online Andar Bahar games are streamed live, they do not come with a demo mode for you to place free bets. While this is a bit of a bummer, the upside is that all real-money payouts will be credited instantly to your online casino account.
If you ever have any doubts about how to play Andar Bahar, all Ezugi and Pragmatic Play tables at LV BET come equipped with a detailed explanation of the game rules, gameplay and bets that you can access at any time.
It’s no secret that Andar Bahar is known for its simplicity. Whether you’d enjoy playing this Live Casino card game truly comes down to what you look for in a game. Sure, Andar Bahar may not have the flashiest of features, but if you think about it, that’s how all table games began before they were whisked away by online casinos.
Players who prefer plain-sailing Live Casino games will find that Andar Bahar is a great new addition. Although the gameplay is relatively simple, Andar Bahar tables offer a variety of side bets to keep the action interesting and the payouts rewarding. Players who want a little more engagement than Andar Bahar offers would enjoy other Live Casino games in our portfolio, like Free Bet Blackjack or Lightning Roulette.
If you enjoy the general gameplay but would like to amp it up just a tad, then you may want to consider switching out basic Andar Bahar for Andar Bahar OTT™ or Speed Andar Bahar.
