When live dealer casinos first emerged, the choice of games was limited to roulette, blackjack, and baccarat. This is understandable as they are each iconic in their own right, but players who wanted something different were out of luck with live casino India providers.
Times have changed dramatically now. Live casino specialist Evolution has a portfolio with more than 30 different games, and other providers, like Playtech Live, Ezugi, and Pragmatic Live, also have ever-growing portfolios.
Ultimately, there’s a far greater choice, which means more players enjoy playing in live casinos. Among the new games that have taken live casinos by storm is India’s very own Teen Patti.
What is Teen Patti?
Teen Patti is based on the English game, three-card brag, while also taking influences from poker. The casino variant is played head to head – the player vs the dealer.
- A game starts with the player making an Ante bet.
- The dealer then deals three cards face-up to the player’s hand and three cards face-down to their own (the dealer’s) hand.
- Based on the strength of the hand, the player must decide whether to Play or Fold. If they Play, they must place another bet equal to the size of the original Ante bet. A Fold means they lose the Ante bet, and the game round is over.
- After making a Play bet, the dealer reveals their cards, and the hands are compared to see which one is the winner.
- The payouts depend on the strength of the player’s hand, and whether or not the dealer qualifies with a queen or higher.
Best Live Casino Teen Patti Games
As mentioned, over the last few years, the popularity of Teen Patti has exploded. Now, every software provider worth their salt has at least one variant of this game in their portfolio along with popular live game show games. Here’s a selection of the most popular ones.

Teen Patti Live – Evolution
Evolution is the number one live dealer casino specialist, so it’s no surprise that it has Teen Patti in its portfolio. What is a surprise is that this is a relatively new game for Evolution, so it was slow off the mark by its own standards.
Evolution’s Teen Patti is streamed from an Indian-themed studio with native Hindi dealers guiding players through the action. The game follows standard casino Teen Patti, where the dealer has to have a queen or higher to qualify.
There are two optional side bets – Pair Plus that can pay up to 100:1 and 6 Card Bonus with a possible payout of 1000:1. In addition to those, the ante bonus adds to the win potential if the player is dealt a straight or higher.
Teen Patti Live – Playtech
Like Evolution, Playtech’s Teen Patti Live also uses Hindi-speaking dealers, which adds to the authenticity of the game.
The rules of the main game are consistent with Evolution’s version. However, players can win more with the side bets playing this game. The top payout for the Pair Plus bet is 200:1, which is double what Evolution pays.
Also, Playtech has a Mega Bonus side bet with a top payout of 2000:1. Although it’s worth noting that the RTP on this bet is 95.28%, so we don’t recommend playing it every hand.
Teen Patti & Bet on Teen Patti – Ezugi
Ezugi was among the first live casino providers to release Teen Patti. Since launching the original, Ezugi has also created a different variant – Bet on Teen Patti.
With this game, players simply bet on either the Player A hand or the Player B hand. In some ways, it’s like baccarat in that the player has no control over the outcome of the game round. While it’s an easy game to play, most gamblers prefer the original version.
