Poker has become globally acclaimed as of late, with televised events and celebrity poker game events. Its universal appeal, though, stretches back in reality a bit further than its TV scores. Over the years many variants on the original poker game have been created, including a handful of games that are not really poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of the above-mentioned games. Despite the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely related to blackjack than old guard poker, in that the gamblers bet against the dealer rather than the other players. The winning hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is no bluffing or different types of bamboozlement. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up just before the dealer announcing "No further bets." At that moment, both you and the house and of course every one of the different gamblers are given five cards. After you have looked at your hand and the dealer’s 1st card, you have to in turn make a call wager or bow out. The call wager’s amount is equal to your beginning ante, which means that the risks will have doubled. Abandoning means that your bet goes instantly to the casino. After the bet is the conclusion. If the house does not have ace/king or better, your wager is returned, with a figure in accordance with the original wager. If the casino has a hand with ace/king or better, you succeed if your hand beats the bank’s hand. The casino pony’s up money even with your bet and set expectations on your call wager. These odds are:

  • Even for a pair or high card
  • two to one for 2 pairs
  • 3-1 for three of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • 20-1 for a four of a kind
