“Gambling is injurious to health”. This is a warning that you may find written on the roadside in India and if you see right under, you’ll see a gang of 5-6 playing cards. Such is the level of addiction that people lose all their money, go homeless and may even love their wife (if you’re Yudhisthira from Mahabharata). So gambling has a very dark history in India and that’s why playing cards are almost a synonym to have committed a crime. That’s how virtual money became a part of the game. Now you don’t need to shelve in thousands of dollars and risk your money just for the sake of one-night pleasure. But to make Poker popular in India was a huge challenge and it certainly needed something different, something that strikes a chord with the local players and that’s how Teen Patti came into existence.
It’s the iOS app Junglee Teen Patti 3D that has been making waves since it’s been released. The app has been developed by Junglee Games and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 4.3 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.
Teen Patti is the Indian take on Poker and is hugely popular in South Asia. In this game, 3 cards are dealt at the start and betting starts. You can bet blind i.e. without seeing your cards or you can see how strong your hand is. The strength of your hand is determined by the slot it fits in. There are some pre-defined sets with different ranks and if your hand falls in one of them, you can determine what position you stand at. However there’s a disadvantage of seeing cards and that is you’ll have to bet double the amount as compared to the person who’s playing blind. Moreover, you’ll have to bet at least the same amount as the last player and if someone raises the bet, it’s the next lowest.
With Junglee’s Teen Patti offering, now you can play with your friends by inviting them or you can just enter any room randomly and start playing with strangers. Feeling a little bit left out? No problem as you can start chatting with other players and send them gifts as well. You can even exchange chips and looking at the daily bonus this app gives you, I don’t think you’ll have any financial problems with it. The graphics of the game are very stylish with vibrant colours and 3D effects making you feel as if you’re actually sitting inside a casino.
So what are you waiting for? The app is available for free in the App Store and has a lot on offer. So if you have some spare time that you want to invest in for a good reason, you can’t find a better one than this!
Pros: intuitive interface; stylish graphics; vibrant colours; 3D effects; call, raise, play blind; free.
