Posted by Marvin James on December 27th, 2019

 Humans have enjoyed playing card games since ages. So, their discovery isn’t new. Well, yes, they were extremely primitive in nature back then, but the great thing about them is that, even today, nothing has changed much.


When we say card games, the most popular game that comes to our minds is poker of course. You can play it at your home with your friends or family or online. The rules remain the same.


But little did you know that in various parts of the world, especially Asia (India to be more specific), there is a card game called Teen Patti, which competes with poker directly in terms of recognition.


So, I am here to tell you which of these two card games is more fun to play. Is it Teen Patti or Poker? Let’s find out.

What is Teen Patti?

Teen Patti is an admired card game, which has grown immensely popular in recent years. Seeing this, there are many online casinos offering Teen Patti games on their platform. The best part about these games is that you can play from the comfort of your home.


Teen Patti or 3 Patti, however, you call it, is a common household game for any Indian out there. It is pretty similar to “Three Card Brag game” that originated from Britain.


The name Teen Patti in English means Three Cards.


Typically, the game ideally works from 4 to 8 players, although there are exceptions and rules of course. So, the basic foundation is that players bet on who they think has the highest-ranking card. Prior to the game starts, a minimum bet is decided, and after which, all the players should pay place their money into the pot (or center of the table).


And if you want to have good practice of this game before you play with real money, online casinos are the best.

What is Poker? 

Poker, on the other hand, is another popular card game that the whole world knows about. Even if someone is not aware of its rules, he or she would have heard its name for sure. Undeniably, it is one of the most popular card games in the world. It is a game that combines luck, skill, gambling, and strategy, together.


The basic or the primary purpose of poker is that the one with the greatest hand typically wins the game. However, you can bluff other players into folding just by convincing them to think that you have a high hand, even though you don’t.


What’s even more interesting is that it is poker come in different variations while Texas Hold ‘Em being the most popular. So, the total number of cards being dealt in poker depends on what variation you are actually playing.
