Following are statistics showing the House Edge in different scenarios of Casino War. These apply to a standard 6 deck game:

As in real life, we can see that the odds are mostly against you when you go to war. But it is really not advisable to surrender in the game of Casino War; it all really depends on the strength of your cards.

Going to war – Probabilities (with a bonus for a tie after tie)

Win with tie after tie: Probability 0.005471, Return 0.010942

All other wins: 0.497265, 0.497265

Lose after war: 0.034242, -0.068484

Total: 1.000000, -0.023301

The same conclusions apply here.

The following is a table of Casino War House Edge rates, with the number of decks changing. This is relevant because different Online Casinos use different number of decks sometimes, there is no fixed rule to use a set number always.

 Decks With Bonus No Bonus Surrender Tie 1 2.06% 2.42% 2.94% 35.29% 2 2.24% 2.70% 3.40% 25.24% 3 2.29% 2.79% 3.55% 21.94% 4 2.31% 2.84% 3.62% 20.29% 5 2.32% 2.86% 3.67% 19.31% 6 2.33% 2.88% 3.70% 18.65% 7 2.34% 2.89% 3.72% 18.18% 8 2.34% 2.90% 3.73% 17.83%

A rule of thumb here is that as the number of decks is reduced, so are the odds. Although you could say, unless you really want to be really meticulous, that in terms of numbers subject on hand, the differences are not substantially huge.

Cut ties with ties

An advice often repeated almost everywhere is to avoid tie bets in the game of Casino War. Players often go for that because of the very promising 10 to 1 payout, but statistics have shown that ties happen in Casino War only once in 13 rounds! In the large picture this means you lose more than you win. It is generally advised to all Casino War players to always go to war.
