The objective of Card King is to tally the highest score possible.
When you start a new game, you'll be dealt five cards, at random, from a standard 52-card deck. With Kings being high, guess if the next card dealt to you will be higher or lower than the previous card. For each correct guess, you'll score points; and you'll be dealt another card and continue to guess whether the next card will be higher or lower than that card. Repeat until your straight of cards is "busted" by a wrong guess. On the way, there are a variety of hints, Sidekicks, and "lifelines” you can employ to extend your straight and maximize your score.
The more daring you are, the more points you'll be awarded. Earn Bonus Points with a long straight or one of five Sidekicks.
Sidekicks, located in the panel just below the Card King playing board, are little optional "mini-games" you can play while playing Card King to earn additional points. Following are the 5 available Sidekicks:
1. Predict if you will break your personal best score to earn 50 Bonus Points
2. Predict what your straight will be at when you bust to earn 150 Bonus Points
3. Predict how many Kings you will be dealt to earn 150 Bonus Points
4. Predict the color (red or black) of the next card to earn 300 Bonus Points.
5. Predict that the next card is a face card to double (2x) your points for this round.
Each time you successfully guess whether a card is higher or lower, you'll earn the points as shown on the Higher or Lower buttons, ranging from 40 points to 240 points. The amount of points reflect the odds based on a full 52-card deck. For example, if your Feature Card is a Jack, the odds of being dealt a higher card are much, much lower than being dealt a card lower than the Jack. The lower the odds of success, the more points you'll earn...and visa versa. However, remember to keep in mind that these point values are based on a FULL deck, so be sure to factor in the cards out of the deck (shown on the black panel) when deciding whether to guess higher or lower.
If you are able to put together a straight of at least 7 cards, you will earn Bonus Points as follows:
Each day you may play 15 games—two free games, plus up to 13 additional games for TCredits—as follows:
Post a top 100 score for the day and you'll receive up to 10 free entries in tomorrow's Daily Crown drawing where you can win a share in 75,000 Rewardicals! Win instant bonus prizes and cool badges, too!
Plus, earn 20 Rewardicals for every TCredit spent. No purchase necessary to win. Note: In the case of a tie, the least time between the start and finish of the game will be the tiebreaker.
ALSO...see also King's Ransom and Duplicate Card Bonus descriptions below for more prizes!
The Duplicate Card Bonus is for players who have used at least one TCredit in a game. Here's how it works: If you guess higher or lower but instead are dealt the same card as the Feature Card, not only do you earn the points of your guess, but you get to spin for a bonus prize! Prizes include TCredits and Card King Bonus Points (which are added to your current game's score). Additional prizes are available for SFI affiliates.
The spin wheel will automatically appear when you are dealt a duplicate card. If you win a prize with your spin, it will immediately be added to your account. Note: If you are dealt the King four times in a row, you will win the King's Ransom (see below) instead of a Bonus Prize Spin.
The King's Ransom represents a a special "jackpot prize." It starts at 100 TCredits, but grows until someone wins it. You'll win the King's Ransom automatically any time you are dealt all four Kings in a row, in any game where a TCredit has been spent (NOTE: TCredit must be spent prior to being dealt any kings). The TCredits prize will immediately be added to your account, it is then reset to 100 TCredits and starts growing again until the next person is dealt four Kings in a row.
For each Feature Card you are dealt, you have a maximum of two minutes to decide whether to guess higher, lower, or pass. When there are 20 seconds left, your remaining time will be displayed immediately above the Feature Card. Have sound set to on to also receive a audio cue when you're down to the final 20 seconds.
When the game starts, you're dealt five cards at random (nearly 10% of the 52 cards). These cards are valuable because they let you know which cards are already out and can help you make smart choices when deciding to guess higher, lower, or to pass.
Three free Peeks are provided each game (see Peek button on right side of Feature Card). Peeks will literally count the cards for you and let you know how many cards are left in the deck that are higher and lower than the Feature Card. This is valuable information that can help you navigate some of the tougher choices, so use your Peeks wisely.
You are allowed to pass on up to three cards per game (see Pass button on right side of Feature Card). You can pass on any card, but you're best served to use them when the odds of successfully choosing the next card correctly are low. Note that no points are scored when passing. The first and second pass costs 1 TCredit each; the third and final pass costs 2 TCredits.
On the screen that is displayed between cards being dealt, there are two important pieces of information provided. First, it tells you how much farther you need to extend your straight in order to earn valuable Bonus Points. Secondly, it tells you how many other Card King scores today your current score has topped and the rank of your current score. Remember, to Daily Crown entries, you need to finish with one of the 100 highest scores of the day.
Which card is considered higher or lower? Following are the values used for Card King:
Card King enjoys the presence of a two Jokers. One is nice...and one is naughty! The nice joker will pop up from time to time and will help you when you need him most. The naughty joker, on the other hand, likes to play mean tricks on people, so beware!
For each TCredit spent playing Card King, you'll earn 20 Rewardicals, redeemable for free Bitcoin, gift cards, silver bullion, and more! If you’re an SFI Affiliate, you can also exchange your Rewardicals for unlimited PSAs, CSAs, and PRMs!
