    Any of you guys ever play casino war?

    This game is nutty... about as 50/50 as you can get. Only drawback is if you tie the banker you either have to surrender half your bet or double, and if you double and win you are only paid on your initial wager.

    No doubt its fun. If there was ever a game meant for martingaling I would think this would be a pretty ideal candidate.

    lol.....ya I play this game when I go to the Casino in Niagara Falls if the blackjack tables are full.

    It can be fun, but its also a game where you can lose your money real fast.

    No brain power required for the game.

    Way higher than 2.5%. It's a terrible game and anyone that plays it once is a complete sucker.

    he think its a 50/50 game leave him alone.

    Greekster better off playing the craps table. You will lose less and its a few feet closer to the poker tables.

    House edge is actually closer to 2%, I wonder what it is if one surrenders half their bet every tie?

    Martingale will never work because of casino limits and limited bankrolls by the player

    House edge is 2.88%, but the element of risk is 2.66%.

    Not the best game in the house, but far from the worst.

    really it is probably the best odds in vegas right? 50/50

    actually.. there are only three games i really know of in vegas where you can get girls really involved..

    1. Craps
    2. Roulette
    3. War

    i almost always go to vegas with a girl.. so i want them to have fun playing too..

    war is the best game for them.. they all know it.. and u let them martingale for 10,20,30 bucks.. they usually get it back.. if not.. who cares..

    Craps they usually don't understand.. so i just hand the chick the dice and tell her.. "baby 7 is bad now ok?? Yes i know it was good before.. but now i don't want you to hit a 7 ok.. no 7 baby.. 6, 8 , or 10 is what we want.."

    My wife loves the game but for me it's only one to play when you want to have some mindless fun.

    This reminds me of a time when a few of my buddies were over for a poker night. After the game ended, someone joked about playing Casino War at Foxwoods, and in no time we wanted to play it, yet everyone was afraid of being the House for fear of being cleaned out.

    So I agreed to it, and it was the easiest money I ever made.

    tried it once, the roulette tables are fixed, i swear to god, black jacks ok but had big big problems trying to collect 400 winnings, the check was delivered to my door by FedEx and charged me 35, waited a month for it.
