Casino War is the fastest, simplest table game to learn and play, and is the only game where players can beat the dealers more than 50% of the time.

Once you choose the table make a bet in the marked area. You and the dealer will each receive a card face up. If your card is higher than the dealer’s, you win even money. If your card is lower, you lose. (Ace is high.)

If your card matches the dealer’s in rank, you can either surrender half your bet or go to war.  When going to war, you are required to place an additional wager equal to that of your original bet. You and the dealer will each get another card, and if you beat the dealer, you will get paid the Go-to-War wager only and push on the original wager. If you lose, the dealer will take both the original wager and the Go-To War wager. Tie when opting to Go-To-War will ensure you get paid both the original and Go-To-War wager. Winning ties when going to war is huge. Because of this rule, you will win 50.3% of the time in Casino War, assuming you never surrender
