The exciting game of Caribbean Stud Poker was designed to offer you an easy-to-learn, enjoyable alternative to the long established casino games. Caribbean Stud Poker is played on a twenty-one table and is based on the Five Card Stud Poker game. This is the first casino table game to offer a progressive jackpot payout.
This card game is played with one standard deck of cards. The game is initiated when the player places a wager called the ANTE. Next, the dealer will deal five cards face-down to the player.
The dealer's own five-card hand is dealt: four cards face-down and the final card face-up.
The player has the choice to either stay in the game or fold. If the player chooses to FOLD, the ante bet is lost. If the player decides to CALL, a BET is placed and the amount of the original ante is doubled. The dealer shows his hand and if the dealer does not have at least an Ace/King combination, the player automatically wins even money on the ante and the wager (BET) is returned. If the dealer has at least an Ace/King combination, then a comparison is made between the dealer and player's hand. If the player has the higher hand, the player wins even money on the ante and the original wager pays according to the payout table below:
|Three of a Kind||3:1|
|Four of a Kind||20:1|
Players are also given the option of playing for the progressive jackpot. To participate in the jackpot, the player must make an additional side bet of $1 at the drop slot. The player is betting that he/she will receive a hand of cards equal to, or better than, a flush. Regardless of the outcome of the regular table game, if the player has a hand that qualifies for the progressive jackpot, that player will win the amount designated in the payout table:
|Four of a Kind||$500|
Placing a Bet
To place a bet, click on the chip you want and this chip will be added to the ANTE bet. Every time you click on a chip, it will be added to the current bet. Chips are ordered from the highest value to the lowest value.
To remove a bet, click on bet chips and the chip on top will be removed. You can do this for every chip you have on the betting spot.
An additional bet can be placed in order to participate in the progressive payouts. Click on the drop slot placed up to the ANTE bet to add a $1 bet. The lights on your slot fixture are activated by the chip drop and stay illuminated until the hand is over to show that you made the jackpot bet. To remove this bet, click on the same drop slot as you did before.
Playing the Game
Click on the DEAL button to start the game. Two card sets are dealt, one for the player and one for the dealer (with the last card face-up), then the player can take one of two actions:
If you feel you have a hand that will beat the dealer's hand, you will make this bet. This is exactly twice the amount of the ANTE bet.
If you do not feel you have a strong enough hand to beat the dealer, you fold and do not make the bet to "Call the Dealer".
