Table of content:

India is well-known for its rich history of card games. However, recent Indian poker games are heavily influenced by western and eastern cultures. Blind Man's Bluff, the most common Indian poker game, requires the participants to place their cards on their brows. This is done so that the participants are able to see the opponent cards but not their own.

The term "Indian Poker" refers to many games that use the same card-holding system, although they differ in terms of the number of cards in hand and betting methods. You may use this function in a variety of poker varieties, such as Hold'Em, Stud, and so on. Following are the basics of the One-Card Poker game:

The Rules of Indian Poker Game


The regular 52-card deck is used.

The Deal:

Participants deposit an ante and they are given a single card in the basic edition of the play, which is assumed to be the original version. The cards are delivered upside down. Players take their cards, taking care to keep the card upside down as delivered. This is done to keep them from seeing what they've been handed. Following that, participants raise the received cards to their brows so that the other participants can see them.

The Betting Process:

The deal is followed by a betting session. You have 3 options to choose from during your turn in the betting process.

  • Call

You can make a call by wagering the sum staked by the preceding player.

  • Raise

You can increase your wager by betting the same sum as your existing wager and betting more afterward. This raises the wager amount, which opposing participants must meet to continue playing.

  • Fold

You can fold by resting your cards without betting. Though you are not forced to place money into the pot, you have to remain out. This also means you lose any money wagered and therefore have no chance of winning the pot.

The betting sessions will proceed until all participants have called, raised, or folded. If a participant chooses to raise, the betting session finishes once the raised sum has been matched by all other participants and there's been no additional raise.

The Showdown:

The showdown begins once the betting session has concluded. The pot is won by the person who has the highest rating card. In case of a tie, participants divide the pot.

The rules may change by mutual consent. Participants may also choose to play a game where the lowest ranking cardholder wins the pot or the pot is split between the highest and lowest-ranked cardholders.

This is easily the best looking Poker I have played online. I have been playing for about 2 months now, and I keep participating in various daily & weekly contests. Still, I was pleasantly suprised to make ₹60,000 in one week itself.
