Online poker has become globally celebrated as of late, with televised events and celebrity poker game shows. The games universal appeal, though, arcs back in reality a bit farther than its television scores. Over the years several variations on the earliest poker game have been created, 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 more closely resembling blackjack than old guard poker, in that the gamblers wager against the dealer instead of each other. The winning hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is no bluffing or different kinds of deceptiveness. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up before the dealer saying "No further wagers." At that moment, both you and the casino and of course all of the different players attain 5 cards each. Once you have observed your hand and the casino’s first card, you must in turn make a call wager or give up. The call bet’s amount is on same level to your beginning ante, which means that the risks will have increased two fold. Abandoning means that your ante goes directly to the bank. After the bet comes the face off. If the bank doesn’t have ace/king or greater, your wager is given back, with an amount on par with the initial bet. If the house has a hand with ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand beats the casino’s hand. The bank pays money even with your initial bet and fixed expectations on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for 2 pairs
  • three to one for three of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • seven to one for a full house
  • twenty to one for a 4 of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
