Playtech Teen Patti live is a refreshing alternative to the other versions of Teen Patti you can play at live casinos.
It’s still the exact Asian equivalent to 3 Card Poker, but it’s the first game to replicate how you play the game in a land-based casino.
The three most notable features are:
In this review, I’ll cover how to play, the side bets and a strategy for playing.
The Strategy for Playtech Teen Patti is quite simple.
Only play hands that are Queen, Six, Four or better. Fold everything else.
As for side bets – the strategy question is, do you play them or not?
The answer is if you want to have some fun! Don̵7;t expect to win on the side-bets in the long term.
While you don’t necessarily need to understand the value of poker hands, you’ll get a lot more enjoyment from the game if you do.
The lowest possible hand is a High Card. The high card is one card in the hand that is higher than the others. Like Ace high or Queen high. The other cards are essential, as they are used to settle ties with the first card. These cards are called kickers. So if one hand had Ace high, with the next card being an eight, and another had Ace high with the second card a King, the second hand would win with the King kicker.
The next hand is a Pair, two cards of the same value. The third card plays a kicker role if two hands have the same pairs. The one with the better kicker would win. You can form pair hands from Aces through to Kings.
A Straight is a hand of 3 cards that follow each other that are not all identical suits, like 6,7,8, or King, Queen, Jack.
A Flush is a hand of 3 cards with all cards from the same card suit.
Three of a Kind are all three cards of the same value, like three sixes or three nines.
Straight Flush is a hand that is straight with all the cards of the same suit (Flush).
Royal Flush is a hand of Ace, King and Queen in the same suit.
The Mega Bonus uses five cards to form a hand, so a few more hands are possible.
Two Pairs are where you have two non-identical pairs.
Four of a Kind is a hand with four cards of the same value.
A Full House is a combination hand with a Pair and Three of a Kind.
Royal Flush is Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten of the same suit.
Playing optimal strategy, the RTP for the Ante bet is 97.74%.
The RTP for the Pairs bet is 95.80%.
The RTP for the Mega Bonus bet is 95.28%.
If you play Blind, the RTP is 95.96%. Doing this has no advantage to be gained, so don’t play blind!
Playtech has produced an excellent game with its version of Teen Patti.
There are some subtle differences between this version and other versions, most notably the ability to play the Pair Side bet without the need to place an Ante Bet.
Playing Blind gives no advantage whatsoever and doesn’t replicate the land-based experience. With a poor RTP, there is no reason to play Blind.
If Side Bets are your thing, Playtech Teen Patti has better payouts for most of the bets than the other versions.
Teen Patti is an excellent addition to the Playtech Live Games catalogue and worth playing.

Playtech Teen Patti is a straightforward game to play. The only decision needed is whether you play or fold the player’s hand. To make it easy, play any hand that is Queen, Six, Four or higher. If it’s lower, you should fold it.
There are three side bets in Playtech Teen Patti. The Ante Bonus plays when you place an Ante bet. The other two are optional. Pairs Plus can be played independently and pays for hands with a Pair or more. The Mega Bonus uses the players̵7; and dealers’ cards to form a 5 card poker hand. Payouts occur for hands of three of a kind or more. The side bets payout even if the dealer doesn’t qualify or beats your hand.
