E-20: How to Play Caribbean Stud Poker

Caribbean Poker is a very simple game to learn and can be a good starting point if you want to start playing table games


You must first place a bet in the Ante box and an optional $1 bet in the progressive jackpot spot.

Five cards are then dealt to each player and to the dealer, with one of the dealers cards exposed to the players.

You then look at your cards, but must not show your cards to another player.

You now decide if you want to keep going or forfeit your ante and jackpot wager.

If you decide you want to play on, you must place a wager that is double your ante bet.

You then place your cards face down on the table and wait for the dealer to take the folded hands and bets.

The dealer will then expose his 4 other cards.

For the dealer to qualify and pay all bets, he must have an ace and a king or higher. (pair, 3 of a kind etc)

If he does not qualify, the dealer will pay even money on the ante bet and the bet/raise wager will be considered a tie or push.

Obviously if the dealer does qualify and his hand is ranked higher than yours, then he will take both your ante and raise wagers.

If he qualifies however, and your hand is higher, then you will be paid both your ante and raise bet based on the pay table displayed.

This is the standard pay table for most Vegas casinos.
For a pair and lower you are paid at 1:1
Two pair 2:1
Three of a kind 3:1
Straight 4:1
Flush 5:1
Full House 7:1
Four of a kind 20:1
Straight Flush 50:1
Royal Flush 100:1

The side bet will be paid depending on the casinos house rules and jackpot pay table.
