Rules of Caribbean Stud Poker

, Author

Caribbean Stud Poker is one of the fastest-growing table games in casinos. While it was formerly difficult to find a casino that offered it, this is no longer the case. And it’s always available at any respectable online gambling establishment.

The game’s meteoric rise can likely be attributed to its low barrier to entry and high social value. Although playing Caribbean Stud Poker solo might be entertaining, nothing beats the excitement of a full table of players.

Let’s start the game and go over the basics. There is a more beginner-friendly article here on the site if you don’t know the basics of the game and would like to learn.

You have to put up some serious money first. Let’s pretend you’ve just deposited $5. Once you have your cards, you must determine whether or not to continue playing the hand based on your assessment of your hand. This is the game-changing call. You “fold” if you decide to give up. If you don’t, you’ll need to increase your Ante by one and place the new total in the Bet box. Here, the “Ante” was $5. A $10 bet would leave $15 on the table.

Winning Strategies

Only the dealer is your opponent. If the dealer has a hand rank of Ace-King or greater, it’s game on. If not, you lose your Bet wager and get even money on your Ante bet.

In the event that the dealer meets the requirements for qualification and you win, you will receive even money on your Ante wager while the payout for your Bet stake will depend on the rank of your hand. Have a look at this salary scale:

It’s a 50/50 bet if you have a pair, and

Pairs: Two to One

Odds of getting three of a kind are: 3:1

Even: 4 to 1

Flush: 5:1

It’s a full house: 7-1

Four of a Kind: 20 to 1

50:1 for a straight flush

Odds of a Royal Flush are One Hundred To One.

The “odds” will only apply to your Bet wager. If you bet the maximum of $1 on the progressive, you will win even money for a Flush or better.

Remember that your superb hand only wins the even money on the Ante wager if the dealer qualifies. That’s why the progressive is my favorite type of game to play.

Handout Example

All right, let’s have a look at a simple example. You start by putting down a tenner on the table and one dollar into the progressive pot, which remains at one dollar throughout the game. You look down at your hand of cards and see that you have a full house. You’ve decided to stay in this hand and have placed a $20 Bet wager to do so.

In poker, the Bet bet is always double the size of the Ante. It’s impossible to place a bet of any kind, ever.

When the dealer reveals a pair, you take the pot. You will receive $110 for your winning hand, made up of $10 from your Ante bet and $100 from your Bet bet (5:1). But hold on! Due to your participation in the progressive, you will also receive the bonus payout.

We’ll discuss the variable progressive bonus in a separate piece.
