An Overview of Caribbean Stud

June 17th, 2010  |  Published in Gambling Games

Caribbean Stud has slowly gain popularity over the past few years due to the opportunity to win a progressive jackpot with a side bet. Caribbean Stud is a table game with the house maintaining the advantage of the main game around five percent.

The Game

Caribbean Stud is played on an area similar to the size of a blackjack table. The game uses the same hand rankings as found in poker. Players are against the dealer so your hand must be higher than the dealer’s.

Each player first makes an ante equal to the table minimum. The player also has the opportunity to place a side bet for the progressive jackpot at this time. The five cards are shuffled and dealt face-down. Meanwhile, the dealer has four cards face-up and one down. Players look at their cards and either fold or place a bet twice the size of the ante.

The dealer then turns over all cards. In order to qualify for the hand, the dealer must have an Ace-King or better. If the dealer does not qualify, all players are returned their ante and any other bets. If your hand beats the dealer’s, you’re paid based on the following table:

  • One pair – 1 to 1
  • Two pairs – 2 to 1
  • Three of a kind – 3 to 1
  • Straight – 4 to 1
  • Flush – 5 to 1
  • Full house – 7 to 1
  • Four of a kind – 20 to 1
  • Straight flush – 50 to 1

Progressive Jackpot

The side bet is usually only a dollar and offers the player 649,000 to 1 odds against winning. This has proven to be one of the worst bets in any casino. Due to the odds to win and payout, it’s not a good match. The standard odds and payout are as follows:

  • Flush – win $50, odds 508 to 1 against
  • Full house – win $75, odds 693 to 1 against
  • Four of a kind – win $100,  odds 4,164 to 1 against
  • Straight flush – win 10% of the progressive jackpot, odds 64,973 to 1 against
  • Royal flush – win 100% of the progressive jackpot, odds 649,740 to 1 against

Unfortunately, the odds of to win are not consistent with the payout. If the choice is made to partake in the progressive jackpot, it’s important to note that players are still eligible for the jackpot even if the dealer’s hand does not qualify. Also, if playing the jackpot, you must immediately inform the dealing prior to them picking up their cards.

Caribbean Stud is a fairly simple game to master if you have a working knowledge of poker. Since it’s more of a social game, it is not as fast-paced as blackjack. Although exciting, it’s not profitable to place the side bet to potentially win the progressive jackpot.

Five Tips for Playing Caribbean Poker

March 25th, 2010  |  Published in Gambling Games

Caribbean poker is a variation of traditional five card poker where the player’s goal is to have the highest five card hand based on the standard high hand ratings found in most poker games. In Caribbean poker the chances of winning are increased by a progressive jackpot that continually rises as each hand is dealt at the table.

The Top Five Tips for Winning at Caribbean Poker

1. Always bet on the progressive jackpot. The progressive jackpot in Caribbean poker can get pretty high as the came progresses. If you are not betting on the progressive jackpot during each hand you lose out on the opportunity to win the pot. Always place a bet on the progressive pot in every hand you play.

2. Always bet the maximum you can on the progressive jackpot. Perhaps just as important as betting on the progressive jackpot is the importance of betting the maximum your bankroll allows. Placing a larger bet in to the pot not only increases the total pot, but encourages other players at the table to do the same.

3. Do not fold unless you have too. It is common for beginners to fold at the first sight of a bad hand. Folding in Caribbean poker automatically causes you to lose your Ante bet. If you see the possibility of turning your hand around when the second round of cards are dealt, it is best to keep playing rather then forfeit your bet entirely.

4. Pay close attention to the dealer’s hand. Caribbean poker is based off the dealer’s hand. If the dealer’s face up card is a high card, he or she may be able to win that round. However, if the dealer’s hand is not Ace King or higher all players are guaranteed to double their original Ante bet, which is an easy way to make quick cash in Caribbean poker.

5. Spread out your bank roll. It may take several hands to win any serious cash in Caribbean poker. If you have a limited bank roll be sure to spread it out accordingly. Remember that any player is required to raise their Ante bet after the dealer’s hand is revealed, which can quickly decrease your bank roll.

Like most poker games, the more you know about Caribbean poker, the better you will play. Increasing your skill level will help you win more rounds and more cash.
