Evolution Super Andar Bahar is a turbocharged version of the popular Asian table game, with the addition of win multipliers.
Evolution has introduced its famous multiplier payouts to the game, giving the opportunity of a 4000x payout if the cards and multipliers align.
The multipliers are given on the main side-bet, which can be played on its own or alongside the main hand.
In this review, I’ll explain how to play Evolution Super Andar Bahar, demonstrate some hands in my video review and offer some strategy tips.
Live Super Andar Bahar is Evolution’s version of the very popular Asian table game, Andar Bahar. What makes Super Andar Bahar different is the addition of multipliers, which can boost side bet wins up to 4000 times the bet.
The main game is played with one deck of 52 playing cards. The first card is turned over; this becomes the joker card, against which the Andar or Bahar playing positions have to match to win. The dealer deals alternating cards face up to each Andar and Bahar positions. When the value of a card matches the value of the Joker card, the game round ends.
If the Andar Position wins, players are paid 0.9:1, while the Bahar position pays 1:1 to the lucky players betting on that position.
Alongside the primary hand are ten side bets. Each of the side bets covers a number range of cards dealt up to a point there is a match with the Joker. The more cards dealt, the higher the payout.
The multipliers are randomly applied to one or more side bets after betting time has closed and before the dealer starts dealing the cards.
The highest multiplier available in the game is 3999 times the bet. The lowest is 9:1.
What make Super Andar Bahar great is the ability to bet only on the side bets. No main hand bet is needed to play.
Bets are placed during the betting time. You can place bets on the central hands – Andar or Bahar and the side bets.
You can play just the side bets if you like without making the main hand bet.
Once betting time has closed, random multipliers are assigned to some of the side bets.
The dealer draws the top card from the freshly shuffled deck. This becomes the Joker card, which the Andar or Bahar hands have to match with.
The second card from the deck is dealt face up to the Andar position and the 3rd card to the Bahar position. The dealer repeats the process of dealing cards to each alternating hand until a match with the joker card is made.
Once a match with the Joker card is made, the game is over.
The playing interface pays the players who correctly identified the correct hand, and also those that guessed correctly the number of cards to be dealt before the match was made.
There are 10 Side bets you can bet on. You can bet on as many as you like.
The side bets are in blocks for the numbers of cards dealt. You have to pick the range that will match with the total number of cards dealt when there is a match with the joker.
The ranges are:
The multipliers are assigned randomly across the ranges, with the maximum number shown in brackets above.
Choosing a betting strategy for the side bets is difficult. However the multiplier payouts are what we’re after, so you can be a little more adventurous with the spread of the betting.
Keep in mind that while getting a big win with a multiplier is always desirable, any success should be savoured. DOn’t be blinkered into going after the high payouts. Playing conservatively, you’ll still return a profit – which is the main aim.
We know that in a deck of 52 cards, three cards will match with a joker. The good thing is you don’t have to specify which hand will match. You have to predict how many cards have been dealt when the match occurs.
If we dive 51 cards by 3, we get 17., which is the average dispersion in a deck the three cards will have. So for every 17 cards dealt, you should get a match.
So my strategy is to target Cards 11-15, Cards 16-20, Cards 21-25 and Cards 31-35. I place bets on each of these ranges and hope they also get multipliers.
Statistically, a match should occur more often in these ranges. But matches do fall outside these ranges, so a flutter on another spot can’t hurt depending on how much bankroll you have.
Remember though – do not bet more than the lowest single win would give you. This will help to maintain your bankroll and ensure you can hit a profit if the cards are kind to you.
Super Andar Bahar comes with a set of statistics that shows the results from the previous 50 games.
In truth, these have no bearing on the next game, as the cards are shuffled after each game round. They show the propensity for the game to be almost a coin toss, with an even amount of Andar and Bahar hands winning.
The Andar hand is always dealt first, so it is more likely to get a match first. That is why a commission of 10% is taken on the Andar payouts.
The RTP for the Andar position is 97.85%. Bahar has an RTP of 97.00%, while the side bets with Multipliers have an overall RTP of 96%.
Super Andar Bahar is all about the multipliers. If you’re after the multiplier wins, you only need to play the Side-bets.
However, that takes something away from the game.
The presentation of the table and dealer uniforms is in an authentic Indian style that gives a peaceful air to the game.
Usual for a live dealer game, Super Andar Bahar is played on a rectangle-shaped table.
I like the game, but if you’re not worried about the multiplier, you should play Ezugi Andar Bahar or Playtech Andar Bahar. The payouts are more generous for the base side bets, and they both have extra side bets not represented on the Evolution table.
The main difference is the multipliers that can be applied to the bet positions on the side bet. A maximum multiplier of 4000x is possible, but you’re more likely to win multipliers between 20x to 200x regularly.
The maximum multiplier is 4000 times your bet. The multiplier range from 9x up to 4000x, with the higher multipliers awarded for the most challenging side bet to win.
The RTP os Andara Bahar is 97.85% for the Andar position and 97.00% for Bahara. The difference between the two is because the Anadar hand is always the first to be dealt and, therefore, when a match is more likely to happen. This is a coin toss game, with the odds 50-50 between the two.
