How to Play Caribbean Stud Poker


This also is a five card poker game with the player and dealer receiving a hand. In this game, each player’s hand must beat the dealer hand to win. To begin, players must make a bet in the “Ante” box. The dealer will deal five cards to each player face down, and to himself five cards with one turned up. The players, after looking at their cards decide to play or fold. To play, a bet twice the Ante must be made in “Bet” box. After all players have made their decision, the dealer reveals his four remaining cards.  Dealers hand must be an ace and a king or better to qualify. If they qualify, players must beat dealer to win  “Ante” and “Bet”.  If  dealer does not qualify, then all playing hands win even money on their “Ante”‘ and push on the “Bet”.  Qualified winning hands are paid odds on the “Ante” bets starting with even money for a pair to 7-1 for a full house and a 100-1 for a Royal Flush. Below is the complete payout schedule showing the odds and Bonus payouts:
