Casino War

AIM OF THE GAME

Casino War is an exciting fast paced game based on the traditional card game of War, where you play your hand against the House.

The aim of the game is for your card to have a higher ranking than the Dealer's card. If you are dealt a card with the same ranking as the Dealer, you can then elect to Go to War or Surrender. You can also place a Tie wager which wins if you draw a card with the same ranking as the Dealer's card.

HOW TO PLAY

CASINO WAR TABLE LAYOUT

The Casino War table allows for seven Players on one side, and the Dealer on the other. The layout features designated areas for placing your Casino War, Go to War and Tie wagers. 

HOW DO I PLAY

To commence the game, you place your Casino War wager in the box marked 'Bet'.

After the Casino War wagers have been placed, all Players and the House receive one card dealt face up.

After you receive your initial card, your wager will: 

  • Win, if your card is of a higher ranking than the House's initial card
  • Lose, if your card is of a lower ranking than the House's initial card
  • If your initial card is of the same ranking as the House's card, you will be given the option to Go to War  or Surrender.

However, if you place a Casino War wager, then you may place an optional wager in the Tie Bet area. Your Tie Bet will only win if your initial card is of the same ranking as the House's initial card.

 

GO TO WAR

If you elect to 'Go to War'  you will be required to place an additional wager of equal value to your initial wager. Once you have placed an additional wager, you will receive an additional card. The House will also receive an additional card. If your additional card is of a higher ranking than the House's additional card you win 1-1 for your additional wager (initial wager - standoff). If your additional card is of a lower ranking than the House's additional card your initial wager and Go to War  wager will lose. If your additional card is of the same ranking as the House's additional card your Go to War  wager will be paid at odds of 2 - 1 (initial wager - standoff).

 

SURRENDER

If you elect to 'Surrender' you will surrender 50% of your initial wager to the House and you will take no further part in that round of play.
