We’ll discuss all these sections, so keep reading for everything you need to know about playing Andar Bahar online.
What is Andar Bahar?
If you’re from India, you’ve probably grown up playing the Andar Bahar game.
The game, which originated in the state of Karnataka in India, is more than 100 years old and a very traditional feature of festival celebrations and family life.
Andar Bahar would often be played by households during festivals such as Holi and Diwali.
Now, with Betway, you can play your favourite card game online for the chance to win money at the same time.
The name itself “Andar Bahar” is from the two Hindi words for Inside and Outside, denoting the way cards are dealt by the dealer.
It is called Andar Bahar in Northern India, or you might know it as Maang Patta in the south or Katti if you’re from Karnataka.
The popularity of Andar Bahar across India meant it soon became a staple at some of the county’s most famous land-based casinos.
You can now see Andar Bahar alongside games like Blackjack and Roulette.
How to Play Andar Bahar
Part of the reason Andar Bahar is so popular is because it is so easy to play. In this section we’ll explain how to play Andar Bahar and you’ll be an expert in no time.
Your Aim: All you need to do is pick which side – Andar or Bahar – you think will have the card that matches the joker card.
Then you bet on which side you think the matching card will appear.
Here’s what happens:
- A first card is dealt, that is the joker card (eg 9 Hearts).
- Cards are dealt onto the Andar and Bahar sides, alternating between both sides.
- The game is over when a card is dealt of the same number as the joker (eg 9 Diamonds).
The main game is played with one deck of 52 cards per round.
You have a 50/50 chance to win and the odds are the same for each side, paid at 1.9x your bet.
You can bet from as little as ₹50 all the way up to ₹5000 so there is the chance for big wins.
If the joker card’s suit is black then the next card will be dealt to Andar side and if card’s suit is red it will be dealt to the Bahar side.
How to Place a Bet
So now you know how to play Andar Bahar online, your next step is to make a bet.
Simply click on which side you want to bet on: Andar or Bahar. Once you have selected an amount, you will also be able to see how much you could win.
The dealer will deal the cards and then the excitement begins.
If you win, you will be credited instantly.
When the next round begins, your options will be reset.
Will you choose the same options as last time? Or pick new options for the next round? The choice is yours.
Either way, the next hand is only a few seconds away.

Maang Patta, Katti, or Andar Bahar?
Although it most commonly known as Andar Bahar, the popular game goes by various names around India.
As we mentioned, it is often referred to as Maang Patta or Katti around the southern regions of India.
The three games are mostly the same, however there are some differences between Maang Patta, Katti, and Andar Bahar.
For example, some versions of Maang Patta and Katti allow players to pick their own joker card.
So, Betway’s version is based on the standard Andar Bahar game where you simply match the value of the joker card dealt by the dealer.
To make sure you know the rules to our Andar Bahar live game, check out the How to Play Andar Bahar section above.
Andar Bahar Strategy
When playing Andar Bahar online, every player has their own strategy.
It is a straightforward game so make sure you know the basics: you have a 50/50 chance to win and the odds are the same for each side, paid at 1.9x your bet.
As the game is played with one deck of 52 cards per round, it is important to remember that there are only three other cards that could be matched.
But it could be the first card dealt, or it could be the last card in the deck.
