Caribbean Stud Poker

The casino table game Caribbean stud poker is similar to five card stud poker. Unlike standard poker games, you play against the house rather than against other players. Because of play like this there is no bluffing or other forms of deception in Caribbean stud poker. For these reasons, most poker players do not regard Caribbean stud poker to actually be a form of poker.

These rules are typical of most U.S. casinos, but obviously the payouts and limits vary from casino to casino.

How to Play

Caribbean stud poker starts when each player places his ante on the table where indicated; all ante wagers must be placed prior to the dealer announcing No more bets. Next each player and the dealer will then receive 5 cards, face down. The dealer turns over one of his cards, then pushes the cards toward the players, after which the players may look at their cards. They may only look at their cards, and may not discuss their hands with the other players at the table.

In Caribbean stud poker the players now have the option to play or fold their hands; if they wish to play, they place their bets (doubling their respective antes) in the bet box. If they choose to fold, they forfeit their ante. After all the players have made their decisions, the dealer reveals his hidden cards. The dealer only plays with an ace/king; he then compares his cards to the players cards, and the best poker hand wins.

There are some major rules that must be observed at all times while playing Caribbean Stud Poker:

  • Caribbean stud poker can be played only one hand per player. Players cannot hold or wager on multiple hands at the table.
  • If you choose to play the Caribbean stud poker Progressive Jackpot feature you are responsible for ensuring your 1 dollar wager has been inserted into jackpot slot and the indication light is lit.
  • You may not exchange hand information with any player or dealer. Violation will result in a dead hand and forfeiture of wagers.
  • An incorrect amount of cards dealt to a player constitutes a dead hand for that player alone.
  • The decision of the table/casino supervisor is final.
  • Once a player has examined his cards and has placed them face down on the table, they may not touch the cards again.
  • If a hole card is exposed prior to the dealer announcing No More Bets, all hands are considered void in Caribbean stud poker.

If a players cards beat the dealers cards during Caribbean stud poker, the player will receive even money (1-1) on the ante, and the following on his bet (with a maximum payout of 5,000 U.S. Dollars per hand on each wager on Caribbean stud poker):

  • Royal flush 100 to 1
  • Straight flush 50 to 1
  • Four of a kind 20 to 1
  • Full house 7 to 1
  • Flush 5 to 1
  • Straight 4 to 1
  • Three of a kind 3 to 1
  • Two pair 2 to 1
  • One pair or less 1 to1

In Caribbean stud poker if the dealer does not have at least ace/king, all bet wagers will be void, and players will receive even money on their ante bet only. If the dealer's cards beat a player's cards, the dealer collects both the ante and bet.
