A fabulous new progressive draw poker game, Caribbean Draw Poker has been added to the Gold Series of table games at Microgaming Online Casinos.
The game is a 5-card Draw Poker variant with one standard 52-card deck in which you compete against the dealer.
There's a main five-card draw game offering an optional bonus side bet that can be played simultaneously, based on your initial poker hand.
It is a game of luck and strategy that offers high payouts and a big progressive jackpot for added online poker excitement.
How to Play Caribbean Draw Poker?
First, you place an Ante bet on the poker table. The Ante bet may be anywhere from 1 to 100 credits ($, €, £, SEK...). Then click the Deal button to receive 5 cards, all face up, and the dealer will receive 5 cards, one face up and four face down.
Now you can Fold, Stand, or Draw. If you fold, you lose your Ante bet and the game is over. If you stand or draw, an additional bet, equal to double your Ante, is placed in the Play area of the table. If you stand, you stay with initial 5 cards you were dealt; if you draw, you may trade in one or two of your cards in hopes of bettering your hand.
The dealer needs at least a pair of 8s to qualify. If the dealer does not qualify, you win a 1-to-1 payout on your Ante bet, regardless of your hand's total (Push).
If the dealer qualifies and your hand is better than his, you win a 1-to-1 payout on your Ante bet and you win a payout on your Play bet according to the type of poker hand you hold, as follows:
• Royal Flush pays 100 to 1
• Straight Flush pays 50 to 1
• Four of a Kind pays 20 to 1
• Full House pays 7 to 1
• Flush pays 5 to 1
• Straight pays 3 to 1
• Three of a Kind pays 2 to 1
• Two Pair pays 1 to 1
• Pair pays 1 to 1
Progressive Jackpot Bonus Bet
Before the cards are dealt, you may place an optional Bonus side bet of one credit (fixed $1, €1, £1) in addition to your Ante bet. The Bonus bet qualifies you to win the big progressive jackpot and some other bonus payouts.
The Bonus Bet payouts are based on your initial 5-card poker hand, before drawing andindependent of the main Draw Poker game, so if your initial hand is two pairs or better you automatically win the Bonus Bet payout, regardless of whether you fold, stand, or draw, and regardless of whether or not your hand beats the dealer's hand.
