Solitaire can be played and won in many ways, but the biggest challenge is to win it playing Klondike Strict.  Klondike Strict is the newest exclusive addition to our Solitaire menu.  This version uses a standard 52 card deck that you can go through only once and turning one card at a time.

The object of the game is to move all cards from the Waste Pile and the Tableau Columns to each of the four Foundations in order from Ace to King and grouped by each of the four suits. Klondike Strict uses a standard 52 card deck that you can roll through up to 1 time. Twenty eight Cards will be deal to the Tableau in 7 columns with the number of cards increasing from 1 to 7 from left to right. All cards are facing down except the top card which will be facing up. Click Start to begin the game. Not all cards must be moved to the Foundations for you to be paid. The amount you have accumulated at the end of the game will be applied to your account balance. A $0.55 winning game should pay you exactly $2.60.

The top cards from the Tableau Columns and the Stock are the only cards available to play. The cards on the Tableau Columns should be arranged alternating colors and in sequence from King to Ace. An empty Tableau Column can only be filled with a King.

When you are unable to move any cards among the Tableau Columns, you will need to use the deck of remaining cards, which is called to Stock. Each turn, you can flip over three cards face-up, one on top of the other. These stack of cards face up are called the Waste Pile. The third card (the one on top of the Waste Pile) is the one you may move. However, you may look at the other two cards.

Play the game according to the rules aforementioned. If you are unsure what your next move might be, you can click the Hint button and an option with a high percentage of game success will be displayed. Keep in mind thas this button is to assist you in not missing simple moves you may have overlooked. Each game is different as it progresses. Based on your play style, it may be in your best interest to choose a play other than the suggested hint. When you click Hint, the button will change to Apply for a few seconds; clicking it will execute the move displayed. You may choose to automatically execute hints from the Options menu.

Double clicking a card from the Talon or the Tableau Columns will send it, if eligible, to the corresponding Foundation.

If no more moves are available in the game, you can click Fold to stop it and start a new one.

Klondike Strict Solitaire winnings will not be applied to the account until the game is finished.

When closing the game without finishing it, next time you access Klondike Strict you will be prompted to continue your incomplete game.

You may play Klondike Strict while wagering other betting features. You can have an active Solitaire game going even while betting on a Live in Play sporting event.
