How to play Caribbean Stud Poker

Caribbean Stud is another popular form of poker, players like this game because it has the option to win a progressive jackpot with a small bet of just $1 in some casinos. Though the odds for winning the progressive jackpot are about 649.000 to one players still like the chance the game offers. This game is much slower paced than blackjack and involves more people as well.

The game is played on a table that is similar to the size of a blackjack table and uses poker hands & rankings.

A, K, Q, J, 10
all of the same suit

in the same suit
(Ex: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)

3. Four of a Kind:

the same index
(Ex: Q, Q, Q, Q)

8. Two Pair:

9. Pair:

10. High Card

The game begins when each player makes an ante bet, most tables will have a minimum bet requirement so be sure to take note of those. The progressive side bet is also offered to players at this time as well. Players will then receive five cards face down, and the dealer’s cards are dealt four face down & one face up. From there the players will look at their cards to determine whether they want to fold or call by making an additional bet twice the size of the ante bet. Once the players have made their decision, the dealer will then reveal his cards. In the game of Caribbean Stud the dealer must qualify with an Ace-King or better to continue the game, if he does not qualify the players are paid out even money for the ante bet and the second bed is called a push which means neither side wins or loses. If the players beat the dealer, even money is paid on the ante and the call bet will be paid out based on the following table;

One Pair or less: 1 to 1
Two Pairs: 2 to 1
Three of a Kind: 3 to 1
Straight: 4 to 1
Flush: 5 to 1
Full House: 7 to 1
Four of a Kind: 20 to 1
Straight Flush: 50 to 1

In order to qualify for the progressive side bet, players will need to have a flush or higher to earn a bonus payout. The odds for this is that a player will receive a flush once every 508 hands, and if the player does achieve this, they’ll earn $50. Even if the player loses the original round of poker, they are still eligible for the progressive jackpot if they made the bet.
