Internet poker has become world acclaimed as of late, with televised competitions and celebrity poker game events. The games popularity, though, arcs back in fact a bit farther than its TV scores. Over the years numerous variations on the first poker game have been created, including a handful of games that are not quite poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of the above-mentioned games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely resembling vingt-et-un than long-standing poker, in that the gamblers wager against the house instead of the other players. The winning hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is little bluffing or other types of deception. In Caribbean stud poker, you are required to pay up just before the croupier declares "No more wagers." At that moment, both you and the dealer and of course all of the different players receive 5 cards each. Once you have observed your hand and the casino’s initial card, you must in turn make a call bet or give up. The call bet’s amount is akin to your beginning ante, indicating that the risks will have doubled. Giving Up means that your wager goes instantaneously to the bank. After the wager comes the conclusion. If the dealer doesn’t have ace/king or greater, your bet is given back, including an amount on par with the original wager. If the dealer does have ace/king or better, you win if your hand beats the dealer’s hand. The bank pays money equal to your wager and set expectations on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for 2 pairs
  • three to one for three of a kind
  • 4-1 for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • 20-1 for a 4 of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
