Caribbean Stud Poker is a Poker alternative - the first casino table game to offer a progressive jackpot.
CARIBBEAN STUD POKER
AIM OF THE GAME
Caribbean Stud Poker is based on the traditional Five Card Stud Poker game, where you play your hand against the House.
The aim of the game is for your Poker hand to beat the Dealer’s hand. If you draw one of the top five Caribbean Stud hands, you will also be in the running for an additional jackpot bonus - all you have to do is place an extra wager on the jackpot option.
HOW TO PLAY
THE CARIBBEAN STUD POKER LAYOUT
The Caribbean Stud Poker table seats seven Players on one side, and the Dealer on the other. Its layout features fields for placing your ante and bet wagers, and a slot for entering the jackpot wager.
HOW TO PLAY
To commence the game, you place a wager in the “ante” box. You also have the option of placing an additional wager on the jackpot spot - this makes you eligible for jackpot bonuses, in addition to the regular payout on your winning hand.
After the initial ante stakes have been placed, all Players and the Dealer receive five cards face down.
One of the Dealer’s cards is then turned face up, providing a window to the House’s hand.
WILL YOU FOLD OR PLACE YOUR “BET”?
Inspect your cards, without revealing them to the other Players or the Dealer. If you are not confident that your hand can beat the Dealer's, you may fold by placing your cards face down, in front of your box. If you think that you may be able to beat the Dealer’s hand, you may elect to play on by making an additional wager. This is known as the “bet” - it must be twice the value of your ante wager.
THE DEALER’S HAND
After all Players have either folded or bet, the Dealer displays the House hand. To qualify, the Dealer must have at least an Ace and King.
If the Dealer’s hand fails to qualify, all ante wagers are paid at even money, and all bet wagers are considered void. If the qualifying Dealer’s hand is higher than your hand, you lose both your ante and bet wagers.
If you beat the Dealer’s hand, you will be paid even money on your ante wager, and varying odds on your bet wager.
Remember, the Dealer must have at least an Ace and King for your hand to qualify for the winning bet payouts.

THE ODDS OF WINNING
This card game is a game of chance and skill and is based on five card stud poker. For an initial stake or ‘ante’, Players receive five cards face down while the Dealer receives four cards face down and one card face up. If a Player thinks they cannot beat the Dealer’s hand, they can forfeit their stake by folding. To play on, the Player’s next bet must be twice the original stake. The best Poker hand between each Player and the Dealer wins. There are also jackpot bets available. The House margin for Caribbean Stud Poker is about 5.5%, which includes an allowance for the jackpot.
