Caribbean Stud Poker
This game is a simple, leisurely variation on five-card stud poker. This may be a good game for someone intimidated by the poker room, or just looking for something a little different. There is even a chance to win a large progressive jackpot. The layout is much the same as a blackjack table with room for seven of you and the dealer facing you. There are three spots to bet money. The first is the ante. This is usually a minimum of $5 per hand and must be bet every time. There is a dollar token slot for the progressive jackpot which you might as well play because if you win the right hand and don't have your dollar in you'll be kicking yourself until your next visit to Vegas.
First thing that you must do is put in your ante. Also put in your dollar chance on the progressive if you choose. Then you and the other players will all get 5 cards along with the dealer face down. The dealer will place one if his/her cards face up. Now you'll need to look at your cards. If you think you can beat the dealer you will want to bet. You must double your ante in the bet box in front of you or fold. All the other players will have done the same thing. Then the dealer must qualify with the cards she/he has. In order to qualify, he/she must have an ace-king or better.
On your hand that beats the dealer you get paid even money on your ante, and the following payoff for the respective hands.
Pair or less
3 of a kind
Four of a Kind
If you have a pair or better or if you have an ace-king and another card that matches the dealer's face up card then you'll want to bet.
