War of Bets is a live dealer TV game developed by Betgames.TV. This card game is simple - two cards are dealt to a player and a dealer. Whoever has the highest value card wins. If the player and dealer have cards of the same value - there's a war. The gameplay might be simple, but the addition of fixed odds betting options adds variety. Here we show you the best bets you can make and how to play.

How to play War of Bets
War of Bets is one of the easiest TV games to play. The game starts with a short betting round where you can bet on fixed odds betting options.
Once this short period passes, the player card will be dealt. This is followed by another 20 second betting interval. After this period has elapsed, the dealer card will be dealt - which will finish the game.
The winner is determined by the value of their drawn card. War of Bets follows other card games like Baccarat with their scoring system. Each card retains its face value - with Jack, Queen, King and Ace being the highest value cards after 10.
For a more immersive experience, you can switch to the brand new fullscreen mode. Select this option and the device screen will fill with the game - not just a tiny window of it. The betting options will now be located in the lower left hand corner of the interface. Select the spade symbol to bet on suit outcomes - or choose the number 8 to wager on numerical outcomes.

War of Bets Strategy
The best bet on War of Bets is the dealer or player option. Betting on either position gives you the best chance of winning. For the best fixed odds, you will want to bet before the player card is dealt. However, you may want to see what is drawn to help you decide.
The war bet is similar to the tie option in baccarat. And just like in that game, we do not recommend wagering on the war option. While you do receive the best odds - it also has a low chance of appearing.
