Ezugi Ultimate Andar Bahar takes Andar Bahar to the next level by giving Multipliers to side bets and main hand payouts.
It’s possible to boost the payouts of the main hand by 125x and the side bets up to 500x.
The multipliers come at a cost; you’ll be charged a 20% fee on your bet.
The Ultimate version uses the same stream as Ezugi Andar Bahar, adjusting the playing interface to accommodate the multipliers.
In this review, I’ll explain how to play Ultimate Andar Bahar, describe the multipliers and compare the two versions of Andar Bahar that Ezugi provides.
Ultimate Andar Bahar uses one deck of fifty-two playing cards.
The game’s objective is to guess which side, Andar or Bahar, will get a matching card with the Joker card.
You don’t have to name the card. Just choose a side – Andar or Bahar to place your bet.
The dealer takes the first card from the deck, which becomes the joker card for the game round.
Players choose their side and place their bets while also picking any optional side bets to play.
In Ultimate Andar Bahar, the side bet is about choosing how many cards there will be before a match with the joker card is made.
If you guess correctly, you can get a decent payout.
You must pay a compulsory 20% fee of your total bet to fund the multipliers during the game.
There are two types of Multipliers.
Between one to three cards are selected each game round with multipliers of 2x, 3x or 5x assigned to them.
The standard payout for a hand increases when the hand receives a multiplier card. The payout gets multiplied by the multiplier value. The Andar or Bahar hand can accept multiple multiplier cards. If that occurs, the multipliers get multiplied together to give a final payout value. The maximum is three cards of 5x each, totalling 125x.
To take advantage of the multiplier payout, you must have a bet on the hand that wins, and that hand has to have the multiplier cards in it.
Both the Andar and Bahar hands can receive the multiplier cards, depending on the cards the dealer draws for each playing position.
The multipliers for the side bets get assigned during the Ultimate round. Between one to eight side bets can receive a 2x, 3x or 5 x multiplier, making it possible to win 500x on the 41-49 Total Side Bet.
Nothing is free in this life, and the same is true for the Ultimate multipliers in Andar Bahar.
To play the multipliers, you must pay a 20% fee on your total bet. It’s a compulsory fee. You can’t opt-out. The cost is added to your total stake when betting time has closed.
If you don’t want to pay the fee, try playing Ezugi Andar Bahar instead, which doesn’t have the multipliers.
The side bet is quite a simple one. You bet on how many cards there will be before a match with the Joker card occurs.
There are eight options, each covering different number ranges.
You can bet on as many of the range options as you like.
The top-paying option is 41-49, which has a payout of 100:1.
You don’t need to play the Andar/Bahar bet to be able to play the side bet. You can play the side bet on its own.
Remember: This side bet benefits from the Ultimate Multipliers.
Note: The standard payouts for this side bet are less than the regular game of Andar Bahar.
If I could predict which hand would win every time, I’d be rich. Unfortunately, I can’t, and no one else can.
The card deck is shuffled before each game round, so previous results have no bearing on what will happen on the next hand.
It’s a pure chance whether you select the correct playing position. We know that Bahar’s hand wins more than Andar’s because it always receives the first card. For that reason, the payout for Bahar is 0.9:1, while Andar pays 1:1.
Now the multipliers can make a difference, so a basic strategy would be to bet on Bahar all the time and hope you get a multiplier boost to increase the payout.
The sweet spot regarding RTP in the side bet is for the 26-30 card range. This range has an RTP of 95.68% and a payout of 12:1. However, this range consists of five cards, which is not a very big window to hit.
The best bet is for the range of 16-25, which covers ten cards. This range has a payout of 3:1 and an RTP of 95.16%.
Oddly the range of 36-40, with a payout of 40:1, has a long-term RTP of 95.50%, so this is a good value bet.
I advise playing a few at low stakes and hoping you get a multiplier boost on the payout.
The playing interface has statistics and displays a previous results tracker.
However, their value is just for show. While interesting, the deck gets shuffled each game round, so previous results are meaningless in helping to know how to bet on the next round.
I’d expect a relatively even distribution of results between Andar and Bahar over the long term, as it is a 50-50 type of game.
In terms of what Ezugi provides in the playing interface, you can see the results of the previous win and the distribution of results between the two playing positions.
There is also some information on the multipliers but not the side bets.
I just wanted to say a few words about how Ultimate Andar Bahar compares with Andar Bahar.
Both Games play the same. The main differences between the two are:
|Number Range||Ultimate Andar|
|1 – 5||2:1||95.19%||2.5:1||94.87%|
|6 – 10||3:1||95.40%||3.5:1||97.67%|
|11 – 15||4:1||95.05%||4.5:1||92.97%|
|16 – 25||3:1||95.16%||3.5:1||98.10%|
|26 – 30||12:1||95.68%||14:1||94.57%|
|31 – 35||20:1||95.37%||24:1||94.28%|
|36 – 40||40:1||95.50%||49:1||94.88%|
|41 – 51||100:1||95.22%||119:1||95.04%|
The multipliers are the attraction in this version of Andar Bahar. The classic game is excellent, but the anticipation of getting the multipliers keeps you playing.
Most of the time, the multiplier payouts are small because you might only have one card active in your winning hand. However, there are odd times when you get more than one multiplier card, and that is when things start to get interesting.
I can’t decide whether to play the side bets, the main hand or both. Playing both means you get two opportunities to earn decent wins, but you lose more money when you don’t win.
I like the simplicity of Ultimate Andar Bahar, the playing interface is excellent, and I like seeing the card count for the side bet, which is missing in other versions of Andar Bahar.
