How is it played?

Andar Bahar is a game that depends on your chance or luck. The dealer in the game puts a card with its face up. The players have to get on one of the two piles, i.e., either Andar (inside) or Bahar (outside). The cards are then dealt by the dealer alternately into two piles. This goes on until a card appears that matches the card from the beginning. Whichever pile has the matching card comes out to be the winning section.

Andar Bahar Rules

Andar Bahar involves one dealer, one player and a playing table with two sections: one is called Andar (inside) and the other Bahar (outside). The game can be played by an unlimited amount of players at the same time and it’s pretty straightforward. It starts with the dealer dealing one face-up card that will be placed in the middle of the table. This face-up card is called the ‘game card’, more commonly referred to as the ‘Joker card’, and it will determine how the round is played and when it ends.

Next, you’ll need to place your bet. The objective of the game is to predict on which side, Andar or Bahar (inside or outside), the next card with the exact same value will show up.

After you placed your bet, the dealer will continue to deal one card at a time on each side of the table until a card with the same value as the Joker (game) card shows up. Depending on which side you placed your bet, you’ll win or lose the round.
