Ezugi, part of Evolution Gaming, can't get enough of Andar Bahar, huh? It all started in 2019 when the company introduced the first version of this classic Indian card game. A year later, the live content aggregator launched this game's OTT (Over-the-Table) variant.
Then, on November 24, 2022, Ezugi bolstered its Andar Bahar collection with the unique Ultimate Andar Bahar. The company claims it's a super-charged version of the widely played Indian card game. The game builds on Ezugi's previous Andar Bahar versions, with exciting multipliers on the eight available side bets. Note that side bets are optional.
After releasing this new title, Pang Goh, Ezugi's Business Development Director, said that this simple, fast-paced, and engaging game remains faithful to traditional Andar Bahar. He, however, said that the game adds potential for big wins, thanks to the side bet and base game multipliers. The Business Development Director at Ezugi also said the game adds brand-new UI, graphics, and animations to give players at top live casino sites a new gaming dimension.
In the press release, Goh continued: "As part of Evolution Group, Ezugi is committed both to innovation and to honoring and building on classic casino games from a mix of cultures. Watch this space, because there are many more new, standout titles in the pipeline that will add unique twists, extra excitement, and the potential for big wins."
Playing Ultimate Andar Bahar's main game is relatively straightforward if you've played this card game before. You'll notice that this game uses the same studio layout as the original title, so it shouldn't be an alien experience.
The game starts with players betting on the Andar or Bahar side to win the round. Then, the live casino dealer will place a single face-up card on the table, also called the Joker. You'll win the round if your position is the first to land a card that matches the Joker. The Andar and Bahar positions pay 1:1 and 0.19:1, respectively.
As said before, players can also make optional side bets, which should spice up the action. The idea is to predict a card that will be dealt before a Joker match is placed on the table.
Below are the card ranges and their respective payouts:
In addition to the side bet multipliers, players can also win up to 125x the stake with the main bets. This happens if one of the 2x, 3x, and 5x multipliers hits either of the three random cards. The same multiplier values can also hit one of the eight side bets. In return, you can win 125x in the main game and 500x with the side bets. The bet limit for this game is $1.2 to $500.
In-game stats are pretty common with live casino games these days. A good example is Crazy Time by Evolution, which arguably has the most detailed and straightforward in-game statistics feature.
Ezugi's Andar Bahar doesn't veer far from this, with a statistics feature that indicates the history of hand wins. The red positions depict losses, whereas the blue parts are for your wins. The company even goes as far as showing the percentage, although it doesn't indicate the number of cards dealt per round.
However, it's advisable not to read much from the in-game stats. The thing is that Ezugi's Ultimate Andar Bahar is purely a luck-based card game. Put simply, any side can win the round. But there's nothing wrong with favoring the side that wins more often. Give it a try!
