Caribbean Stud Poker

Posted under CASINO RULES On By Cas Ino

Caribbean Stud Poker is a 5 card poker game where the objective is to have a stronger poker hand then the dealer. The game is dealt from a standard 52 card deck. Before the game starts, the player is required to make an ante bet with an optional $1 side bet for the progressive jackpot (if you’re playing progressive caribbean stud). When all bets are placed the dealer deals five cards face up to all players as well as the dealer. Only one of the dealer’s cards is exposed, and there are no more draws.

After the deal, the player has the option to fold or press on. If the player folds, the ante is lost. If the player continues he must make a call bet which is always double the amount of the ante. After everyone at the table has either folded or called, the dealer shows his cards and the consequences are as follows:

If the dealer does not have a poker hand of Ace-King or better, he does not qualify. In this case, all players who called their bets (stayed in) are payed the amount of their initial ante. Even if the player’s hand does not qualify, the player still wins.

 Dealer Qualifies, Player Loses
  If the dealer exposes a hand of Ace/King or higher, and is higher than the players hand, the player loses the ante and the call bet.
