Card Matchup Live and OnAir

Card Matchup is the latest live game release from OnAir Entertainment.

It’s a simple high card draw. Not a concept we’re unfamiliar with. In fact the main game is identical to Top Card / Football Studio  launched by Evolution back in 2018, and revamped in 2019.

Games don’t get much simpler. Think Dragon Tiger, with Aces high rather than low, and rather than betting Dragon or Tiger, you’re betting Home or Away.

OnAir Card Matchup last bets

Your bet options are:

  • Home (win pays even money)
  • Away (win pays even money)
  • Draw (pays 11 to 1)

In the case of a draw, 50% of Home and Away bets are returned. Expressed another way…half these bets are lost. Herein lies the game’s house edge! If these bets pushed in the case of a Draw, it would be a zero house edge game.

OnAir Card Matchup Away win

Once bets close, a single card is dealt to the Home and Away positions and the highest card wins. Cards are valued as follows:

  • 2-10 at face value
  • Jacks 11
  • Queens 12
  • Kings 13
  • Aces 14

Suits do not matter.

That’s it for the main game. Like I said, games don’t get much simpler.
