Bollywood Games

11 October 2021 | , ,

Indians take so much inspiration from Bollywood movies, from hairstyles and fashion to parties and weddings. In addtion, gambling is an essential part of Indian culture an therefore they love to play.

Take the two together and it doesn’t come as a suprise that the Indian culture is also reflected in and has inspired live casino online games. These games are often referred to as Bollywood Games or Indian Games across SA betting sites.

We have a look at the best Bollywood Games by Ezugi as well as other game providers.

Bollywood Games by Ezugi

32 Cards

As the name suggests this live dealer card game is played with only 32 cards. All Aces, Twos, Threes, Fours and Fives are removed from a standard 52 deck. The remaining cards count their face value while Jack is worth 11, Queen counts as 12 and King as 13. There are 4 betting positions on the table with an initial number: Position 1 has eight, Position 2 nine, Position 3 10 and Position 4 11. A card is dealt face down to each position and players need to guess which position will have the highest total number.

Teen Patti

Teen Patti is also known as Indian Poker or Indian 3 card poker. It is a 3 card game that you play against a live dealer. The player’s three cards need to have a higher value than the dealer’s ones to win. For even more entertainment 2 interesting side bets are available.

Bet on Teen Patti

Bet on Teen Patti is based on Teen Patti. But in comparison you don’t play against the live dealer but rather bet on which of the two hands will win

Lucky 7

Live Lucky 7 is a card game, played with 8 decks of cards. The main game is very simple and you have to predict if the next card is higher than 7 (7 Up), lower than 7 (7 Down) and has 7 as the exact face value (LUCKY 7). In addition, the game contains 4 side bets: Odd or Even and Red or Black.

Andar Bahar

Andar Bahar, also known as katti, is a very simple but at the same time immensely popular card game that originates from Bangalore. Its simplicity makes it possiby so exciting to play. Players have to predict which playing position – Andar or Bahar- will be the first to match the initially revealed card, the Joker card. It’s a 50:50 type game but can be enhanced with side bets, such as how many cards need to be dealt before a match is made. There is also an OTT (over-the-table) Andar Bahar version.

Namaste Roulette

This European Live Roulette game has everything you want from your live roulette entertainment – and a little more as with every round the direction of the spin changes.

Other Indian inspired games

Other game providers have also launched games that fit into the bollywood Games catalogue:

Cricket is the most popular sport in India and also South Africa. A few live games allow you now to kill two birds with one stone and keep you up to date with the Indian Premier League while enjoying the thrill of live casino games. The screen behind the dealer shows a live stream with the latest cricket action. Therefore, you never miss anything while playing. The following games provide you cricket and gaming fun:

  • Cricket Baccarat by Ezugi
  • Cricket Roulette by Authentic Gaming, currently only available at Betway SA.

Online Casino Games with an Indian theme are on the rise. Therefore we will see more Bollywood games launching over the coming months. These Indian games are not just appealing to players with Indian heritage but due to its fun while simple game mechanics can appeal to a very wide audience.

We personally love India and its culture and therefore really enjoy playing the Indian themed live casino games. The studios are well decorated while the dealers are usually of Indian origin and wear traditional clothing. All games work well across devices while being especially optimised for smartphones.
