A CLASSIC FARO CARD GAME
The Wild West Faro card game was the most popular card game played throughout the Old West. Known within the local Saloon as "bucking the tiger" or "twisting the tiger's tail" this name originated from the early card backs, which featured a drawing of a Bengal tiger. By the mid-19th century the tiger was commonly associated with the game. With our faro card game app you’re able to immerse yourself in a unique gaming experience and enjoy hours of fun!
HOW TO PLAY
The rules of this version of the Faro card game are similar to the original. The betting layout consists of a suit of Spade cards, from Ace up to King. Players would bet on the card of their choice or multiple cards. The dealer would then exposes cards in pairs, a winner and a loser card, the dealer would then pay out or collect accordingly depending on whether you won or lost. Wild West Faro allows you to place several different types of bet, such as a bet on the High Card, a parlay bet, a single bet card or multiple bets on several different cards to either win or lose, when betting on a card or cards to lose, this is known as coppering the bet. This is where an old Indian head penny coin or washer was placed on top of the bet. You can place as many bets as you want before dealing, betting from $1 to $1 million in an effort to break the bank by winning all of the Dealers money!

Ratings and Reviews
Authentic Old West Classic!
This is a really authentic version of the faro card game. I love the graphics especially the little things like blood stains on the cards, this is a really nice touch and only adds to the ambiance. I have always been interested in the Old West since I was a child and was surprised to come across faro as an app. If unfamiliar with the game you may think it looks complicated, but it is a fairly easy game to get the hang of, you are simply betting on cards to win or loose. The cheating aspect of the game is a really impressive feature and shows a different dynamic, back in the old west, players would pull their bets from one card to another with a thread of horse hair, here you have to time it just right and wait for the dealer to deal slowly. Overall this is a great game and I would highly recommend it! 😀 ♠️♥️♣️♦️
