Stud Poker – Caribbean Style13th Oct 2017 |
Caribbean Stud Poker is a standard five card poker game however; the game stands apart from the other run of the mill kinds as the gamer needs to play against the house rather than the other players.
The game has certain standard set of rules though minor differences may occur depending on where the game is played. A standard deck of 52 cards are used, and the game begins when the gamer sets an ante bet. After five cards are dealt the gamer can decide to continue or finish the game. The gamer can then either increase the bet amount equal to or double that of the ante bet, however this must be done before the dealer shows their second card. If the dealer does not have a king or an ace it means the dealer cannot continue playing and so the ante bet is paid, and the bets are returned to the player. If the player wins then they are paid according to the pay table. A win with a Royal Flush pays the highest at 100 to 1, while the Straight flush pays 50 to 1.
The hands in Caribbean Stud Poker are valued in the same way as most other poker games, with two of kind being the lowest, and royal flush being the highest.
Some Added Extras
Within the game there is sometimes an additional side bet available that the player can choose to take advantage of should they wish to. This is called the 5 plus 1 bonus, and with it the player can choose to use one of the dealer’s cards to make up their own five card hand. Regardless of the dealer’s hand, with this bet the player will win with any card combination higher than a three of a kind.
It is also fairly common to find a progressive jackpot that runs alongside this game which players can choose to bet on if the wish to. The winnings from the progressive jackpot are dependent on the value of the hand, with the royal flush once again paying out the maximum amount.
