I'm writing up a review of iSoftBet software and came across a game called High Low. It is a simple game of predicting whether the next card in the deck will be higher or lower than the current one. Wins are roughly commensurate with the probability of winning.

So, please have a look at the new page and let me know what you think. As always, I welcome questions, comments, and especially corrections.

The question for the poll is would you play High Low?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Where's the option for "Did they pay Fremantle for the rights to the Card Sharks game format?"

How would the house edge/play strategy change if ace was highest instead of lowest?

Presumably, the odds would be changed to take this into account - for example, lower than a 6 pays 2.5 for 1, and higher than a 6 pays 1.3 for 1.
In that case, the house edge is the same, and the strategy is pretty much the same; just replace each card with the one above it.
