How to Play Caribbean Poker

Playing Caribbean Stud Poker is really quite easy. The important thing to remember is that as a player you are playing against the dealer and not the other players at the table (if there are any).

Each hand begins with the player(s) placing an ante wager. This wager can be whatever value you want as long as it falls within the tables minimum and maximum limit. Along with the table wager the player(s) also need to decide whether a Progressive Jackpot wager is going to be made. Once the wagers have been made each player including the dealer is dealt 5 cards. All cards are dealt face down except for one dealer card which is dealt face up. Once the hands are dealt each player gets on opportunity to look at their hand and then the cards must be placed face down on the table. Once the cards are back face down on the table they cannot be picked back up so make sure you pay attention to the cards.

Once you have determined your hands value you must decide if you will raise your wager which is twice your ante wager or if you will fold your hand. These are the only two options. If you fold, the hand ends and the next hand begins. If you decide raise your hand and the dealers hand is turned over (once all the players have concluded the wagering round) and the hand with the highest value wins.

Caribbean Stud Poker has a qualifier that must be met before the payoff table can be used. The dealer's hand must contain an King/Ace or better. If the dealers hand does not contain a King/Ace or better than the dealer's hand did not qualify. This means that the player(s) wager is pushed and the Ante is paid off at 1:1. If the Dealer's hand qualifies then the winning player(s) hand is paid off using the table below.

Payout table:
Royal Flush 200:1
Straight Flush 50:1
4 of a Kind 20:1
Full House 7:1
Flush 5:1
Straight 4:1
3 of a Kind 3:1
Two Pair 2:1
One Pair 1:1
High Card 1:1

After the payoff is determined the dealer then looks to see if the players who opted to play the Progressive Jackpot have a winning Progressive hand (a Flush or Better). If the players have a winning Jackpot hand they are paid off using the chart below.

Royal Flush 100% of Progressive Jackpot
Straight Flush 10% of Progressive Jackpot
4 of a Kind $500
Full House $100
Flush $50
