Casino War

In Casino War, the objective is to hold a higher card than the dealer. If both cards are the same rank, you can Go to War with the dealer: two more cards are dealt, with the highest winning. You also have the option of betting that the first two cards will be the same.

Information

  • The game is played with six standard decks of 52 cards each, with no jokers.
  • The deck is shuffled at the start of every game.
  • The cards are ranked as in poker, with a king out-ranking a queen. Aces are always high.
  • The betting limits are shown on the game screen title bar.
  • The game can also be played without making a tie bet, but a player cannot make a tie bet alone.
  • The game and the game rules are identical for real-money and play-money modes.
  • All suits of cards (hearts, spades, clubs and diamonds) are of equal ranking.

How to play

  • Choose the size of the chip on the rail, and click on the 'Bet' box to place it on the table. To place more chips, continue to click on the box.
  • To remove a chip, simply right-click on the 'Bet' box.
  • To place a tie bet, click the 'Tie' box.
  • To remove a bet on a tie, right-click on the 'Tie' box.
  • After you have placed your bets, the 'Deal' button will become active. Click on this and the cards will be dealt.
  • The game will not begin until a valid bet has been placed in the 'Bet' box.
  • Two cards are dealt face up, one for the dealer and one for the player.
  • If the player's card is a higher rank than the dealer's, then the player wins and is paid at odds of 1:1 (see the paytable below for more details).
  • If the dealer's card is of a higher rank than the player's card, the dealer wins and the player loses their bets.
  • If both cards are of the same rank, the player has one of two options: to Surrender or to Go to War.
    • If the player opts to Surrender, they lose half their original bet and the game finishes.
    • If the player selects to Go to War, a bet equal to the value of their original will automatically be placed in the 'Bet' box.
    • Three cards are then 'burnt' (dealt face down).
    • Two further cards are dealt face up, one for the player and one for dealer.
    • If the player's card is higher than or of the same rank as the dealer's card, then the player will win at odds of 1:1 on their original bet, and their second bet is returned.
    • If the player's card is lower than the dealer's card, the player will lose both bets.
  • If the player has bet on a tie and the original two cards dealt are of the same rank, the player will win at odds of 10:1.
