7Mojos’ Teen Patti Face-off is an interesting but niche title with all the markings of a great live casino game. It’s simple yet engaging, and it offers enough variety to keep you interested for hours. Let’s start with some background, though.
First of all, make sure you understand what Teen Patti is and how it works. In short, it’s the Indian variant of 3-Card poker. The core of the game entails comparing two 3-card hands and seeing which one has the stronger poker hand. It has been growing as a trend among live casino enthusiasts for some time now. Especially in the case of Indian players looking to play poker online.
The Teen Patti Face Off variant further mixes things up because you’re not betting against the dealer. Instead of comparing player and dealer hands, this game puts you in a “neutral” position. You can pick any of the two hands to back with your money. It’s not an entirely new concept – Ezugi came out with their Bet on Teen Patti game a few years back. In fact, we’ll use Ezugi’s take as the benchmark for how good Teen Patti Face-off is. Our point is that this is, in practice, one of those “bet on poker” live table games. This kind of format has several advantages over the usual 3-Card poker live casino games. For starters, there is no need to “qualify” with a strong enough hand.
Understandably, the studio, set, and dealer outfits are all inspired by Indian decor. Plus the neon shine you’d expect from a live casino studio, of course.
The rules of Teen Patti Face-off mostly resemble those of live casino 3-Card Poker. It’s relatively simple gameplay, and we’ll walk you through how it works.
In each round, the dealer places 6 cards divided into two hands. These are referred to as Player A and Player B. The hands are then compared and the one with the stronger poker hand wins. If you bet on the winning hand, you’ll get a 0.95:1 payout.
In the unlikely event that the hands are completely equal, the round is a tie and all bets push. This means your full stake is returned to you, but with no winnings.
Of course, not all possible poker hands are available with just 3 cards available to make combinations. Here are the available Teen Patti Face-off hands, ranked from strongest to weakest.
If you’re not sure how poker hands are made and ranked, you can find a complete guide here.
Teen Patti is virtually identical to games like 3-Card Brag and Stud Poker. Of course, the gameplay has been adapted to fit live casinos and the “bet on” format.
Since both Player A and Player B have an equal chance of winning, the payouts for the side bets offer identical payouts. You’ll usually win 0.95:1 on a winning main bet. This is essentially even money, minus the Teen Patti Face-off house edge. Of course, the house edge is lower than 5% after we take into account the possibility of a push.
The side bets offer winnings based on the outcome. Check out the Teen Patti Face Off paytable below for the full details.
|Pair Plus Player A/Pair Plus Player B Side Bets|
|Three of a Kind||30:1|
|3+3 Bonus Side Bet|
|Three of a Kind||7:1|
The main bet RTP in Teen Patti Face Off is 97.50%. This puts the game a notch above roulette in terms of long-term returns.
As per usual, the side bets have noticeably lower RTP. The Player Plus side bet in Teen Patti Face-Off comes with a 95.51%, which is reasonably attractive for those who want more options. The 3+3 Bonus bet is considerably lower with 91.44%, though.
The side betting options are your main break from the Player A/Player B pattern. There are technically three side bets in Teen Patti Face-off by 7Mojos. However, two of them are essentially two sides of the same coin, as explained below
The Pair Plus side bet is the first of these, boasting reasonably high RTP and simple rules. There are options for Player A Pair Plus and Player B Pair Plus. As the name implies, the goal of this wager is to predict that the hand you’re wagering on will have at least a Pair. The stronger the poker hand ends up being, the higher your profits.
Note that the Pair Plus side bet is not strictly tied to the main bet. For example, you can bet on Player A for your main choice and place a Player B Pair Plus side bet at the same time. You could technically win both of these at the same time, too. Remember, just because Player B in this example got a pair or stronger doesn’t mean it wins.
The 3+3 Bonus side bet essentially looks at the whole table and makes classic 5-card poker hands. If 5 of the 6 cards present on both sides of the table form a poker hand that has Three of a Kind or stronger, the bet wins. The poker hand rankings work with the usual rules, ranging from Three of a Kind to Royal Flush.
