  • Bliss: It is a pair of two same numbers, such as 3-3 or 8-8.
  • Kiss: It is a pair of two consecutive numbers, such as 7-8 or 3-4.
  • Miss: It is a pair of two numbers with one missing in the sequence, such as 3-5.

And after forming a joker, you have to discard one card of your choice, leaving 2 regular cards and a joker.

Kissing Missing

Kissing Missing is somewhat like Kiss-Miss-Bliss. The difference is that you’re given 4 cards, 2 normal cards, and 2 for the joker pair.

In this variant, you can only form two joker cards, either a kiss or a miss. And if you fail to do so, you have to discard one card. Ultimately, you’ll be left with normal 3 cards only. And then, the game continues as usual, except now everyone is playing chaal as they have seen their cards already.

Closest to 555

This 3 Patti variation is a little related to 999, just a bit different. Unlike 999, in this variant, you can get a value even higher than 555 or a value lower than 555; it just needs to be closer. For example, you can have 545 or 445.

The other difference is the value of A, which was 1 in the 999 version. It is 0 in this Teen Patti variation. All other values are similar to the 999.

Now, if you see a player choosing not to exchange his card, don’t be quick to judge or fall into the trap. The player can be anything, a strong hand or just a bluff. All in all, it’s a game of knowing odds. In any variation of the game you can use Teen Patti tips to improve your skills.


It’s a 1 to 1 variations in Teen Patti game, where you play against the dealer when it is your turn, even though other players are playing. Banko highly depends upon chance and intelligence. You need to read the dealer’s mind somehow. And you can get better at it with experience and practice.

How you play Banko:

In the Banko version of the game, every player, at its turn, will play against the dealer. The dealer will place 3 cards in front of the player with 2 cards face up and 1 card face down. You need to bet on the card that is face down. And if your prediction turns out correct, you’ll win.

For example, there are two cards, 3 and 8. Now, you need to bet if the 3rd card number is somewhere between these two cards or not. Let’s say it’s 4, and you get it right. It’s a win. You have earned an amount twice than your bet placed. That amount will stay in the pot until only 1 player is remaining. The player that is left at the end will win the whole pot.

Joker Hunt

In this Teen Patti variant, you hunt for the three joker cards that are left at the end of the two consecutive rounds. Here’s how to play these variations in 3 Patti.

After dealing 3 cards to each player, the dealer will place some cards face up in the middle of the table. And the number of these cards is twice the number of players plus 3 extra cards.

For example, if there are 6 players, the dealer will place 15 cards in the middle of the table. (6×2+3=15)

Then, each player will exchange one of their card with a card placed face up in the middle, turn wise. This changing and discarding continue for two consecutive rounds until 3 cards are left at the table. Every player in this 3 Patti variation will use these leftover cards as joker cards, and the game will follow a traditional process.

For example, you’re given A-J-K-4. You can discard 4 to make a stronger sequence. And as you’ve your cards now, from the next round, you’ll be playing chaal. The rest of the game follows the same typical rules of Teen Patti.

One-Eyed Jack
