The first and foremost attribute of a casino is the slot machine. One might even say that the casinos owe their popularity to them.

As a result, online casinos were very quick to make the online slot machine their staple for the player to choose from.

Jhandi Munda is a Dice game that originated in Arunachal Pradesh but has since then become played quite globally. In it, 6 dice are rolled and the face of the die that appears most is the winner. This game is simple and easy to learn, which is why even as far as the English Channel islands and other (former) British Dominions this game is popular.

Also known as “Inside Outside” Andar Bahar is a game of simplicity in which it is one player against the dealer. Essentially what it comes down to is the player guessing the correct instance of the next card – whether it is the same value, or ‘Outside or Inside’.

Teen Patti is known as India’s Poker. This three-card game is extremely popular all across the subcontinent and the one Indian game most likely to be found in online live casinos. With a minimum of three players, Teen Patti is also the most social – not to mention the most entertaining, considering the amount of relative variety.
When it comes to other games that are found at online casinos, their selection is usually sparse and their popularity dwindling. That’s not to say that there is no chance of winning big in games like Keno, Bingo or even Scratch cards! Not all Indian online casinos offer these casino games, but if you’re looking for a bit of variety in terms of gameplay, why not glance at these other games? In any case, your entertainment is what is most important. As the well-known saying also goes, “When the fun stops, stop”.
