How to Play Caribbean Stud Poker?
First, place a bet, this is called the Ante. Choose coins and place them on the "Ante" spot. In addition you can also place a bet on a progressive jackpot.
Second, the player and the dealer is dealt their own 5 card hand. One of the dealer's cards is face up the other 4 are face down.
Third, decide to stay in or fold. If you fold you forfeit your ante. If you stay in you must add to your bet double the amount of the ante.
Fourth (if you are still in), the dealer looks at his cards. If the dealer does not have at least an Ace plus King then the player automatically wins even money on the ante and the additional bet is returned. If the dealer does have at least Ace plus King then a comparison of hands is made.
If the player has the higher hand he wins even money on the ante, and the additional bet pays according to the payoff table below. If the dealer's hand beats the player's hand he loses both the ante and raise. If the player and dealer have hands of the exact same value, the ante and the raise are returned to the player.
