There will be a poker card to the left and a deck of cards to the right. There will be two buttons for “Higher” and “Lower”. The object of the game is to guess if the next card will be higher or lower than the card to the left.

Here is an example: If the card to the left is a three, you should hit the “higher” button since the next card will most likely be higher. This can get tricky with middle cards such as an eight. Aces are always high and the player loses ties. Each time you guess right you win an amount relative to the amount you bet.
