Played in casinos throughout the world including the Venetian & Niagara among others, this simple game will bring you back to your childhood and is a hugely enjoyable game to play. Casino War is without a doubt the easiest card game to play. If you have ever played casino war in the past or simply made a bet on who could draw the highest card, then war will seem instantly familiar.

€10 Matchplay Special for your first bet at Casino War to get you started! 

Rules of the Game

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. If the cards are equal, you can either surrender and lose half you bet or Go to War!

If the player elects to go to war he must raise his bet by an amount equal to his original wager. The dealer will do the same. The dealer will then burn three cards and give the player and dealer another card each. If the player’s second card equals or beats the dealer then the player shall win even money on the raise only and the original wager shall push. If the dealer’s second card is greater the player shall lose both bets.

A Tie after you “Go To War” will result in a Bonus to the player equal to the value of the original wager.

Simple! A tie bet is also available, which pays 10 to 1 if the first two cards tie. The game is played with six decks. Cards are ranked as in poker, except aces are always high. The suit does not matter.
