By Staff

When it comes to gambling games in India, card games dominate things and are the most popular. From new games to ones that have a huge history behind them, both in India and around the world, there is something for everyone in this section of a casino.

But what is the most popular card game in India? Here we run down the three most popular games with Indian players and take a look at what makes each one special. If you are a card player in India and looking for inspiration so that you can try something out next time you play, see what we have on offer below.

What Are The Three Most Popular Card Games In India?

Satte Pe Satta

This game may also be known to you as 7-on-7, it has two names which are both popular. It is the third most popular card game in India on our list, and one of the main reasons for this is because the game can be played by an unlimited number of people, so anyone can get involved and there are no fixed limits. If you are organising a large game then simply add another deck of cards to the game so that everyone has enough cards.

The aim is simple, to get rid of the cards you have been dealt, and you do this by placing them down in order on the gaming board if you have the next card that is needed.

From a strategic point of view, you want to be making moves that allow you to put your own cards down, but prevent your opponents from doing the same, allowing you to get rid of your cards quicker. For new players, provides expert guides on a number of card games that can be found online.

Satte Pe Satta is the third most popular card game in India on our list.

Teen Patti

If there is a game out there which has been specifically created with new players in mind then it may just be Teen Patti. This is a simplified game of poker, and similar to a game in Britain called 3-card brag.

You are dealt three cards and all you have to do is make the best hand you possibly can from those three cards, either betting on your hand by adding more money to the pot, or surrendering and leaving the game to the other players.

Poker is an incredibly important and popular game around the world, but for newcomers the way the game works can be a little confusing. This is where Teen Patti really steps up to the plate and delivers, thanks to the simplicity of the game. Dinesh Rhana, a casino research expert at, is quoted as saying "We rank Teen Patti as the best online casino game in India for 2020. This year the game has seen a real surge in popularity, most likely down to new, quick and exciting versions of Teen Patti that have hit the marketplace."

This is not only going to attract more people to the game, but it is also likely to keep players involved, rather than moving onto other titles such as poker. This is a great starting point for new players, and if Teen Patti can keep experienced players involved then it could well eventually challenge for the top spot as being the most popular card game in India.

With a surge in popularity, Teen Patti is number two on our list.


We can now reveal that Rummy is the most popular card game in India. It is also one of the long-standing games that we have, a game that has been passed down through generations and many players have been around Rummy for a very long time.

Anywhere from two to six players can get involved here, which is good, as it doesn't restrict too many from getting involved, and if you have more than six people wanting to play, you can simply split the game up into smaller groups.

There are different variants of the game, so make sure you know what you are playing, these involve either 10, 13 or 21 cards. The aim of the game is to create sequences with your cards and put them down, and to get a sequence you need at least three cards of the same suit in order.

It is a fast-paced game and one that many people are very used to playing and really enjoy. It is for this reason that Rummy is at the top of our list as being the most popular card game in India.
