If there has ever been a game that's not likely to pop up when browsing through Live Dealer offer in an online casino, Andar Bahar is definitely it. In fact, not finding it would be a safe bet. Players with a long track record might also know it as Katti, traditional card game mostly played in India and Pakistan, although one can easily find it in other parts of Asia as well.
Interestingly enough, not many (if any) software developers are interested in Andar Bahar, so hopefully, Xpro will start the trend and Andar Bahar will finally get the spotlight it deserves. The important thing is that it's here now.
Andar Bahar is played against the casino and the session starts with a single card drawn by the dealer and placed onto the table facing up. The dealing will continue and additional cards are being positioned around the originally drawn card. The hand will end as soon as the dealer draws a card that will have the same value as the original one.
Players have two betting options – Andar and Bahar. One of the two will be selected and the players place their wagers by clicking on the chips and dragging them onto either Andar or Bahar betting areas. By choosing the spot, you are actually betting that a particular position will end the game and that the matching card will be drawn and placed on the selected field.
Andar Bahar is a somewhat forgotten game that was long overdue for a comeback and Xpro did a fairly good job of bringing it closer to the western market. It is quite surprising that we do not get to see Andar Bahar more often, since it is definitely not a difficult game to recreate and stream, therefore bonus points should go to Xpro for remembering it.
