A method and apparatus for playing a wagering game include a usual play of the game whose outcome is determined by a selection of usual randomly generated symbols. Added to the usual symbols is a plurality of additional, preferably no-value, symbols. The wagering game is then played by wagering on the usual play of the game and additionally by wagering on a chance occurrence of at least two of the additional symbols being selected during the usual play. The wages on the chance occurrence are settled according to the outcome of the chance occurrence, and the usual wagers are similarly settled depending on the outcome of the usual play of the game. In one preferred embodiment, the wagering game is a usual card game so that the usual chance generated symbols are a deck of value playing cards. The additional symbols are then at least two no value playing cards which are added to the deck. In other embodiments, the usual symbols are representations of such cards or numbers. Besides dealing of the symbols, the use of ball and grid selection devices or an electronic selection device with a video display is possible.
