These days it seems that not everybody wants to visit a casino and play the most technical or the hardest game that is available. They may not wish to play the extremely easy slot games either. This is where the game of War comes in. War is a game that, for all intents and purposes, can be considered the simplest game around. The standard game of war has a house edge of 2.88%.
Six standard decks are used and all cards are ranked according to their normal poker value. This basically means that aces are ranked highest, then Kings, Queens, Jacks, tens, nines, and on down. The game of war does not take suit into consideration.
Play begins after the player places his bet and then the dealer will deal himself and the player one card face up. Quite simply, if the player has a card that is higher than the dealer then he wins but if the dealer’s card is higher than the player’s than the player loses.

You have some who are very vocal and talk to themselves while they are playing and others who are very contemplative and quiet. If you watch them play you will see how they handle themselves and you will be able to see how long they contemplate their hands. While it is important that the player’s hands are analyzed, you won’t to watch how they don’t over analyze the hand but they simply take their time and make a good decision.

Many people like to think playing the lottery isn’t gambling, after all, you can buy a lottery ticket at your local grocery store. However, it is gambling. You pay your money, choose your numbers and hope that your numbers are pulled from the lottery hopper. This is gambling and if you aren’t careful you can spend just as much money on lottery tickets every week as you would spend in the casinos. You simply have to be more careful when you play the lottery.
It is hard to find a state that you can’t buy a lottery ticket in these days. The states have found this to be an excellent way to raise money for whatever cause they have, such as education and they also know that for most people, the lottery is the dream they have and will pay their dollar every week to win.
If this were the whole story about the lottery, it wouldn’t be hard to keep from going overboard. However, this is just the beginning. Instead of one lottery drawing every week, there are multiple drawings. Add to that the mega jackpots that are multi-state and you can literally have a lottery drawing every day. To make this even more tempting, some states have a mid-day drawing and an evening drawing. It simply doesn’t seem to end.
