Caribbean Stud Poker is a casino game which rules resemble those of five-card stud poker with the difference that players do not play against each other but against the house. In Caribbean Stud Poker both the player and dealer are dealt five cards, those of the player facing up and those of the dealer facing down except for one. Obviously, the goal of Caribbean Stud Poker is for the player to obtain a better ranked poker hand than that of the dealer.
For the dealer’s hand to even qualify, it must either contain both an ace and a king or a pair, while no such conditions are applied to the player’s hand. If the dealer’s hand does not qualify, the player wins even money on his ante and keeps his raised bet. For all other winning hands, the winner is the one with the highest ranking poker hand and in case of a tie the high card determines the winner.
The hand rankings in Caribbean Stud start with a high card, followed by one and two pairs, three of a kind, flush, full house, four of a kind, straight flush and royal flush. The maximum payout in the normal game is $20,000,000 with the four of a kind paying 20 to one, the straight flush paying 50 to one and the royal flush paying 200 to one.
Caribbean Stud Poker comes with a Progressive Jackpot feature that players can select at will. At the start of each hand, the player has the opportunity to decide whether he wishes to have a shot at the Progressive Jackpot or not. For this the player has to place an additional bet and he can do so by slipping a coin into the skull and crossbones studded slot on the bottom right hand side of the table before the cards are dealt.
The Progressive Jackpot payouts in Caribbean Stud Poker will depend on the poker hand obtained by the player. For a flush, the player will win $75, a full house and four of a kind will pay $100 and $500 respectively, a straight flush will pay out 10% of the jackpot current amount and if a player hits the royal flush, he will scoop the whole Caribbean Stud Poker Progressive Jackpot which currently amounts to $39,488.45.
