Online poker has become globally famous lately, with televised championships and celebrity poker game shows. Its universal appeal, though, stretches back quite a bit farther than its television ratings. Over the years many variations on the earliest poker game have been created, including some games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of these particular games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely resembling blackjack than traditional poker, in that the players wager against the bank instead of the other players. The succeeding hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is little conniving or different types of bamboozlement. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up just before the dealer announcing "No more wagers." At that point, both you and the dealer and of course every one of the different gamblers receive 5 cards. Once you have observed your hand and the dealer’s first card, you have to either make a call bet or accede. The call bet’s value is equal to your beginning ante, which means that the stakes will have increased two fold. Bowing out means that your ante goes instantaneously to the bank. After the wager is the face off. If the dealer does not have ace/king or greater, your bet is given back, with a figure in accordance with the ante. If the casino has a hand with ace/king or greater, you win if your hand is greater than the casino’s hand. The bank pony’s up money even with your ante and set odds on your call bet. These expectations are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • two to one for two pairs
  • 3-1 for 3 of a kind
  • 4-1 for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • 7-1 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
