Casino War is another game that enters the list of the top 5 strangest casino games. But guess what? You will find this game practically at every land-based casinos and even at online casinos. It is especially popular among children because of the simple game rules and its objectives. The central intention of this game is to win all the cards.

Dreidel is a betting game traditionally practised by the Jewish people for a long time. You will normally find Jewish people play this game in the living rooms during their festival Hanukkah. In recent years, the game has been introduced in many American casinos. This game is played by using a spinning top with 4 sides, where there are specific Hebrew alphabets crafted on each side. The letters read as Nun, Gimel, Hei and Shin, which is an acronym for ‘Nes Gadol Hayah Sham’ and translates to ‘a great miracle happened there’. The game includes a minimum of 10 objects, which can be anything like buttons, chocolates, pennies, or raisins. The player has to put one of the items into the ‘pot’ and spin the Dreidel every turn. The winner is judged depending on the side the Dreidel faces- Nun: nothing, Gimel: everything, Hei: half, and Shin: put in. What’s more amusing about this game is that it has its major league in New York!
If you’ve heard about the classic Roulette games, this version of Roulette is probably the strangest and weirdest you’re yet to witness! This game is played by using a rat or gerbil, and as usual, the players place their bets on an odd/even number or red/black pocket. But instead of the croupier spinning the wheel and dropping the ball, the animal is placed on the wheel. At one point, the animal will hide in one of the pockets, and if it happens to be the one you placed your bets on, you’ll be the winner. Although some players abhor this game, many love it as the whole style of the game is exciting and entertaining.
