History of the series Baht Oyunu (Baht Zamani)
Ada is a young woman who lost her parents when she was very young. She was raised by her aunts Yasemin and Nergis.
Ada’s aunts are superstitious and have passed on these beliefs to Ada. They believe that their family is somehow cursed. The women in the family are obliged to marry the first man they fall in love with. If they do not marry this man, they will always live alone and will always be unhappy in love.
In Baht Oyunu (Fortune Game), Eda enters into a sham marriage with Ruzgar in the hope that when he gets his residency papers in Turkey, he will marry her for real.
Three years later, Eda expects Ruzgar to propose to her, but he tells her that he doesn’t love her and leaves her.
Convinced that if she does not marry Ruzgar, who is the first man she has fallen in love with, she will be unhappy for the rest of her life, Ada decides to do everything to get Ruzgar back.
She learns that Ruzgar is actually in love with another woman who works with him. So she decides to get a job in the same company.
This is how the story of Baht Oyunu (twist of fate) begins. Eda meets Bora, who runs the company where Ruzgar works. Bora runs the online magazine in which Ada finally manages to be recruited. She will take up the position of Bora’s assistant.
While Ada tries to separate Ruzgar and Tugce and get Ruzgar back, she gets closer to the charismatic Bora.

Our opinion on the series Baht Oyunu
We like it! A refreshing series. Far from the usual cliché of romantic comedies, Baht Oyunu is above all very comical. The character of Ada is endearing and Bora is far from the usual character of romantic series.
