Online poker has become globally celebrated recently, with televised events and celebrity poker game shows. Its popularity, though, arcs back quite a bit further than its television ratings. Over the years numerous variants on the original poker game have been developed, including a few games that are not in reality poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely related to blackjack than traditional poker, in that the gamblers wager against the house rather than the other players. The winning hands, are the traditional poker hands. There is no concealment or different kinds of concealment. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to pay up prior to the dealer broadcasting "No more wagers." At that instance, both you and the bank and of course all of the different gamblers acquire five cards each. Once you have observed your hand and the bank’s first card, you need to either make a call bet or bow out. The call bet’s amount is akin to your original ante, meaning that the stakes will have doubled. Bowing out means that your bet goes directly to the casino. After the wager comes the showdown. If the bank doesn’t have ace/king or better, your bet is given back, plus an amount on par with the initial bet. If the house does have ace/king or better, you win if your hand defeats the bank’s hand. The house pays chips equal to your bet and controlled odds on your call wager. These expectations are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • two to one for two pairs
  • three to one for 3 of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • seven to one 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
