How to Play Casino War
Casino War is based on the game many played as children. Each player receives one card face up. The dealer also receives a card. The dealer plays each player. Bettors should have no concern about what cards other players receive as it is each player against the house hand. The highest card wins. The hand is then over and a new hand is dealt.
A tie creates a war. This is where players must either make a new bet to try and rescue the other or forfeit half of the original bet. If the player wins the war, the original bet pushes and the war bet is paid. If the dealer wins, the house takes both bets. Some casinos pay 2-1 if the war ties. Others just pay the normal amount.
