Meena Sachdeva, a gaming enthusiast says the game of 'teen patti' has a mythological connect with Janmashtami, a festival signifying an end to social evils. "Gujaratis replicate this age old story and play teen patti on a very large scale before Janmashtami and end it on the day of festival," says Sachdeva.
With jobs separating people miles apart, booking hotels or clubs for the game has become difficult for the players who now resort to play the game online.
Saurabh Aggarwal, CEO and founder of Octro Inc, which has digitised the centuries old game of teen-patti. Teen-patti, also known as flush or flash, is a card game. The game is about winning or losing one's money, which is considered illegal in many parts. However, says Aggarwal playing it online may not raise any frowns as the real money is replaced with virtual money.
"The excitement of the game remains the same as we give people eight different variations, we have communities as well and we have also tried to mimic the same feel for people who play it offline. We give them virtual currency to enjoy the game with family and friends," says Aggarwal.
