Online poker has become globally famous recently, with televised competitions and celebrity poker game shows. The games universal appeal, though, stretches back in reality a bit farther than its TV ratings. Over the years numerous variations on the first poker game have been developed, including a few games that are not in reality poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these particular games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely resembling vingt-et-un than traditional poker, in that the gamblers bet against the casino rather than the other players. The succeeding hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is no conniving or different kinds of bamboozlement. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up just before the croupier saying "No further bets." At that instance, both you and the casino and of course every one of the different gamblers acquire 5 cards. Once you have seen your hand and the casino’s initial card, you need to in turn make a call wager or bow out. The call wager’s amount is on same level to your original wager, meaning that the stakes will have increased two fold. Giving Up means that your ante goes instantaneously to the dealer. After the bet is the showdown. If the dealer doesn’t have ace/king or better, your bet is given back, including an amount in accordance with the original bet. If the dealer does have ace/king or better, you succeed if your hand is greater than the dealer’s hand. The bank pays chips even with your bet and fixed expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for two pairs
  • 3-1 for three of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • seven to one for a full house
  • twenty to one for a four of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • 100-1 for a royal flush
