Rules of Caribbean Stud Poker

The game in Caribbean Stud Poker begins with making the mandatory Ante bet. The field for it can be found in the central part of the interface. For bets, chips of the different denomination are used. They are found at the bottom left of the screen. The following values are available:

  • 0.1
  • 1
  • 5
  • 10
  • 25
  • 100.

After making bets, you can start the game. To do this, use the Deal button. After the start of the game, you and the dealer will receive 5 cards each. One of the cards of the dealer will be open. After receiving cards, you can raise or fold, losing Ante. In the former case, you must click the Raise button, and an additional bet will be made on the corresponding field.

If you decide to stop the game, press the Fold key. You and the dealer will go in the open. If the dealer does not have a combination of King and Ace, you return to Ante. If the virtual dealer has at least a King and an Ace, then a comparison of the combinations takes place. After this, the winner is determined. Here are the possible combinations and payout coefficients for them:
