Casino War is based upon the childhood classic. Using the poker card values and Ace high, you simply win if your card beats the dealer.
Playing Casino War
To begin, players place a wager. Then players and the dealer receiver one card each.
The player wins if their card is greater than the dealer's card. If the player's card ties the dealer's card, the player has to options:
- "Go to War"
- Surrender and forfeit half their wager
Go to War!
If the player "Goes to War," they will place an additional amount—equal to the original wager—next to the original wager. The dealer then places an amount equal to the original wager in line next to the player's wager.
Then, they “Go to War.” The dealer burns three cards and delivers the next card face up. This continues until all players “Going to War” and the dealer have a second card.
If the player’s second card is greater than the dealer’s second card, the player keeps all three wagers.
If the Cards Tie
If the player’s second card ties the dealer’s second card, the dealer will place an additional amount equal to the original wager in line and the player keeps all four wagers.
In addition to the original wager, players can place a separate Tie wager, which bets that their first card will tie the dealer’s first card. A winning Tie wager pays 10 times the wager.
