Casino War is one of the most easily understood casino card games. One card each is dealt to a dealer and to a player. If the player’s card is higher, they win the bet. However, if the dealer’s card is higher, the player loses their bet. The cards are ranked in the same way that cards in poker games are ranked, with aces being the highest cards.
A tie occurs when the dealer and the player each have cards of the same rank. In a tie situation, the player has two options: surrender, and lose half their bet, or go to War!
If the player decides to go to War, they must double their original bet. The dealer then burns (discards) three cards before dealing each of them an additional card. If the player’s card is ranked higher than the dealer’s, then the player wins the amount of his original wager only. If the dealer’s card is ranked higher than the player’s, the player loses his (doubled) wager. If the ranks are equal, then the player wins the amount of his doubled wager.
A side bet is offered by which a player can bet on ties. If the player bets on the tie, and his card matches the dealer’s, then the player wins 10 to 1 to his original wager on the tie bet.
