Caribbean Stud Poker is played with one deck of cards on a table very similar to a Blackjack table.
To begin, make a bet in the “ante” box. You also have the option to put $1 in the Progressive Jackpot slot. Ante limits are posted on the tables.
Players receive five cards facedown and the dealer receives four cards facedown and one face-up.
Take a look at your cards and decide if you want to play – if not, fold.
If a player folds, he or she forfeits their ante and their Progressive Jackpot wage (if bet), and is out of the round.
If a player “calls”, he or she must place a wager in the “Bet” area twice the amount of the original ante.
After all decisions have been made to fold or call, the dealer reveals his or her remaining four cards.
If the dealer doesn’t have an Ace, King or better, he or she folds and pays all remaining antes even money with no action on the bet or call.
If the dealer has an Ace, King or better, the dealer compares his or her hand to the hands of each player. If the dealer’s hand beats a player’s hand, the dealer takes both the ante and bet of that player.
If your hand DOES beat the dealer’s, the ante gets paid even money and the bet gets paid a Bonus.
If you and the dealer have the same hand, the remaining cards are compared. In the case of an exact match, the hand is ruled a push. No consideration is given to suit.
If you receive a hand that qualifies for the Progressive Jackpot payoff, and you have made the wager to qualify for it, you are paid according to the Bonus Payoff Schedule.
If your hand is a Straight Flush or a Royal Flush, you are paid according to the amount on the Progressive Jackpot Meter.The Meter begins at a predetermined amount and each Progressive wager adds some to the amount.
After all payoffs are made, a new round begins.
