This is one of the simplest card games at BetVoyager Casino. However, our casino has introduced some special features in order to increase players' payouts.
BetVoyager features our conventional version of Casino War and a version with no house edge.
The game uses six 52-card decks, and cards are assessed according to their face-value, with the Deuce being the lowest and the Ace the highest. Suits have no meaning.
The player makes a bet on one or several boxes and the dealer deals one card on each box bet upon and one for himself. All cards are dealt face-up.
On each box, the player’s card is compared to the dealer’s one. If the player’s card is higher, he wins (the payout is 1:1) and, if it is lower, he loses his bet. If cards have the same rank, the player has a choice:
- to surrender and lose the half of his bet
- to declare “war” by raising his bet with a new bet (Raise) equal to the initial one
If the player surrenders, the game on box is over. If he declares war, the dealer deals one more card to the player and to himself. If the player’s card is higher than or equal to the dealer’s, the player wins. He is paid only for the Raise (1:1). The original bet is not paid, it is returned to the player. If the player’s card is lower, he loses both the original bet and the Raise.
In addition to basic bet, the player can bet on a tie before the deal. If both the player’s and the dealer’s first cards have the same rank, this bet is paid 10:1.
Our Specific Rules
- If war is declared and the player and the dealer get cards of the same rank, the Raise bet is paid 3:1.
- A bet on a tie is paid 12:1.
In our No House Edge version, the Raise bet is paid at the rate of 6.2, but payout for a bet on a tie will remain 12:1. The casino doesn’t have any advantage on a basic bet, but it retains its advantage for a bet on a tie.
The player can play on up to four boxes. The minimum and maximum bets are indicated on the game table. The bet on a tie must also fall within this range; its size bears no relation to the basic bet.
To make a bet, it is first necessary to choose a chip with the desired face-value. At the beginning of the game, this chip is chosen by default, and the chip with the minimum face-value fixes itself onto the cursor. If the player wants a chip with a different face-value, he can select it by clicking on that chip with the cursor. The player can also use the scroll wheel on his mouse to change the chip’s value. After the chip is selected, the player can place a bet by clicking the mouse on the desired part of the game table and his bet will appear there. Each subsequent click adds another chip of the selected face-value to the bet. If the player wants to remove the last chip from his bet, he can remove the chip fixed onto the cursor by clicking the cursor on any empty part of the game window and then clicking on this bet.
The "Clear" button can be pressed to remove all the bets from the table. If the player wishes to repeat his bets from the previous hand, he can press the "Rebet" button. The "Deal" button will begin the game after the bets have been made.
If the player’s original card is equal to the dealer’s one, the player has two options:
- to surrender, and lose the half of the bet
- to raise the bet with a new bet (Raise) equal to the initial one
Cards are shuffled before every hand.
