Casino War is probably the simplest of all casino games. The game is played with six decks. Cards are ranked thus (lowest to highest): 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace.
- First, click on the chips to place a bet. To remove chips from the bet, right click on the chips on the table.
- Click the Deal button.
- The dealer and the player both draw a card. If your card is higher, you win even money (1 to 1) on your bet and the round is over. If the dealer's card is higher, you lose your bet and the round is over. Click New Game if you want to play again.
- If the cards are equal, you can surrender and lose half you bet (click Surrender) or go to war (click War).
To go to war, you must raise your bet by the amount equal to your original wager. The dealer will then burn three cards and draw one card for each of you. If your card beats or equals the dealer's, you win even money (1 to 1) on the raise; the original wager is returned to you. If the dealer's card is higher, you lose both the original wager and the raise.Tie Bet:
A tie bet is also available. To place a tie bet, click on the tie bet area in the middle of the screen. Click on a different chip to add a different amount to the tie bet. Right-click on the tie bet area to remove chips.
If your first card and the dealer's first cards are equal, you win 10 to 1 on your tie bet.Buttons:
