Casino War is arguably one of the most easily understood casino card games. The game is normally played with 6 standard 52-card decks. The cards are ranked in the same way that cards in poker games are ranked, except that aces are always high.
How do I play?
The dealer deals each player one card and takes one card for themselves. If the players card is better than the dealers card, they win even money.
If both cards are of equal value, then the player has the option to surrender half of their wager, or elect to go to ‘war’ with the dealer.
Going to War
If the player chooses to go to ‘war’, then he or she must place a ‘go to war wager’ (equal to his or her original wager).
The dealer will dispose of three cards face down and then deal a second card to the player and take a second card for the dealer.
If the players second card is better than the dealers second card, the ‘go to war wager’ wins even money and the original wager is a stand-off.
If the players second card is equal to the dealers second card, both the ‘go to war’ wager and the original wager win even money.
Players can also place a tie bet which will win 10 to 1 if the players card and the dealers card have the same value.
