Game rules of "Casino war" poker
Poker "Casino War"
"Casino war" poker is a card game with two playing modes:
1. Private - only one player per table versus the dealer.
2. Public - up to 5 players per table versus the dealer.
In both modes the players can join the table, they can observe the game or become players themselves by clicking on the "Join" button. Provided there is a free spot at the table.
The game is played with six 52 cards decks, four suits from deuce to ace. All 6 decks form the shoe ("big deck"), which consists of 312 cards. Every new round starts with a new shoe of 312 cards. The highest-ranking card of the suit is the ace; the lowest-ranking card is the deuce. The game is played on one, two, three, four or five boxes.
Before the cards are dealt, the player makes a bet on the box labeled "Bet". The bet must be within a certain rank. Both the minimum and the maximum bets are specified on the table. To cancel an existing bet on any box, the player should select the chip with the cross symbol ("X") and click on the bet he/she wishes to cancel.
Bet on the "Tie" field
The player can make an additional side bet in the "Tie" field. To make a bonus side bet, the player has to place his/her chips in the "Tie" field, next to the field labeled "Bet". In the Minimum, Classic and VIP hall, the maximum amount that the player can place in the "Tie" field is equal to the maximum bet on the table. The bet on the "Tie" field plays immediately after the cards are dealt. The "Tie" bet wins if the player is dealt a card, where the value equals the dealer"s card, and is paid 10:1. Otherwise the tie bet is lost.
Cards dealt and game play
The dealer deals one card to the player from right to left, for every box, and then takes one card. There is no dependence on the "Bet" bet amount. All cards, including the dealer"s cards, are dealt face up. The game in the boxes and the box order does not depend on "Bet" amount. If the player"s card is higher, he wins 1:1 and the game is over. If the dealer"s card is higher, the player loses his/her bet and the game is over.
If the cards are even, the player may forfeit the game (the "Fold" button) and lose half of his bet, or go to war against the casino (the "War" button), in which case his bet is automatically placed on the "War" field. After the player declares war, three cards are dealt face down to the player and the dealer, and to each one card face up. If the player"s card is higher or even in value to the dealer"s card, the player"s war bet pays out 1:1, and his initial bet is returned.
When the game is over, to clear all the bets and the cards from the table it is necessary to click on the "New Game" button (the "New Game" button appears only in the private game mode, in the public mode the bets and the cards are cleared automatically). After this, the player may lay out his/her chips in the boxes or click on the "Rebet" button to play on the same boxes and with the identical bets as in the last game. After the bets have been placed, the player may click on the "Clear Bet" button to clear all the bets or click on the "Deal" button to start the game.
