Casino War at Christ Church Casino
At the casinos gaming floor find all your favorite table games and enjoy great promotions to keep you entertained.
Casino War is the new table added at Christ Church Casino. Also, they have $2 Blackjack from 7 pm on Wednesday and Thursday and 6 pm Friday and Saturday nights. Ever wanted to spin our Money Wheel and Roulette wheel well now you can!
To play casino war visit the game table and place a wager in the betting area. One card is then dealt to each player on the table and one to the dealer. If your card is a higher rank than the dealer, you win!
Winning bets are paid 1 to 1. If your card is the same rank as the dealer, you get the chance to ‘Go to War’ and try to beat the dealer with a second card or to surrender.
If you surrender you lose only half your bet, the other half is returned and your hand is over.
If you choose to “Go to War” place a second wager, known as a “War wager” next to your first. The “War wager” must be for the same amount as the original wager. The Dealer will then burn three cards and give the Player and Dealer another card each.
If your second card is a higher rank than the dealer’s second card, you win! Your “War wager” will be paid 1 to 1 and your original wager will be a stand-off. If your second card is the same rank as the dealer’s second card, you win! Your “War wager” will be paid 2 to 1 and your original wager will be a stand-off.
If your second card is a lower rank than the dealer’s second card, you unfortunately lose both wagers.
There is also a Tie bet available. There can be only one tie bet per box, with the person controlling the box having first option. Place a tie wager in the Tie bet circle. If, after the initial deal, your card has the same rank as the dealer, you win! Tie bets are paid 10 to 1.
It is important to note that cards are determined by their rank not their value and that all suits have the same value. The rank of cards from lowest to highest is 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace.
If you wish to play pokies machines they have a range of
credit value from one cent to a maximum two NZ dollars. Promotions are
filled with excitement with free-to-enter cash draws, surprise prizes
and fun gaming packages.
