How to Play Teen Patti Game Online

In the beginning, the boot amount is decided by the participants. The boot amount is the amount of money every player has to contribute to the pot to play the game.

Every participant is dealt with three cards face-down. The betting begins with the player sitting left to the dealer button. As per the strength of his in-hand cards, you can choose to either bet (continue playing) or fold his cards on his turn to act. Players have no option to exchange their cards.

Once the cards are dealt, players make the choice of whether to play ‘seen’ (after seeing his cards) or ‘blind’ (without seeing his cards). Players who play blind can change to playing ‘seen’ anytime while playing. The initial stake for the first player to bet is the boot amount.

Players who play blind have to follow these rules - 

  • If the player before you is playing ‘blind’, you can bet equal to or half the current stake.

  • If the player before you is playing ‘seen’, you can bet equal to or double the current stake.

Players who play seen have to follow these rules-

  • If the player before you is playing ‘blind’, you can bet double or quadruple the current stake.

  • If the player before you is playing ‘seen’, you can bet equal to or double the current stake.

At the end of the betting rounds, the ‘showdown’ happens in which the remaining players reveal their cards. If there are only two players remaining in the game, they have to pay a stake for the ‘show’.

If you are playing blind - 

  • If your opponent is also playing ‘blind’, you need to pay the current stake

  • If your opponent is playing ‘seen’, you need to pay half the current stake

You cannot look at your cards before paying for the show.

If you are playing seen -

  • If your opponent is also playing ‘blind’, you need to pay the current stake

  • If your opponent is playing blind, you need to pay double the current stake

Is Teen Patti is different from Poker?

Although it is a common notion that Teen Patti is a form of poker, the truth is  - they are not at all the same.

Unlike Poker ( पोकर ), Teen Patti games ( तीन पत्ता  )are purely luck-based. Players make bets on which one of them has the best three-card hand on the basis of random guesses. As skills are not involved in Teen Patti, it is considered a game of chance.

Poker is a skill-based game that is fundamentally different from other variants of card games, especially Teen Patti.  It is a game of strategy and wits that challenges your logical reasoning, mathematical skills, and knowledge of probability concepts. It is crucial to do strategic planning and preparation to achieve the desired results in Poker.

As per the ruling of the Supreme Court of India, games of skills are those games where “success depends principally upon the superior knowledge, training, attention, experience, and adroitness of the player”.
