How to play Caribbean Stud Poker

The user plays against the dealer. The winner is the one who ends up with a more valuable hand. Caribbean Stud Poker uses chips worth 0.5-500 credits. The game begins with the player making an ante bet and placing chips on the respective table area. Hitting the Deal button initiates card dealing. After that, the player and the dealer receive five cards each, one of the dealer’s cards being dealt face-up. The user can then take one of the following two actions:

  • Press Fold and give up.
  • Press Call to continue the game.

In the first case, the player loses their ante, and the round ends. In the second case, the bet twice as big as the ante is made, and if the dealer has an ace-king combination or better, the hands are compared. If the player’s hand is more valuable, he receives a payout with the respective odds. In case the dealer does not have an ace-king combination, the ante is paid with the odds of 1 to 1. If the dealer has a better hand, the player loses. This poker game variation does not provide the option of exchanging cards.

The following are considered to be winning combinations:

  • Royal Flush – 5 cards of the same suit, in consecutive order from 10 to Ace. For example, 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace of spades.
  • Straight Flush – 5 cards of the same suit, in numerical order. For example, six, seven, eight, nine, ten of hearts.
  • Four of a kind – four cards of the same rank.
