Caribbean Stud Poker is an online casino game that is a mix of blackjack and poker. Like in blackjack the player's hand is compare to the dealer's hand with the higher-ranking hand winning. The hierarchy of hand ranking is the same as in poker.
Most online casinos offer Caribbean Stud Poker. It is classified under Table Games or Card Games or Specialty Games. The player should locate the game and open it. First the player should transfer adequate credits from his online casino account. The player has then to place the ante bet. The chips are usually in the denomination of 1, 5, 25, 100 and 500 credits. The player clicks on the chips of his choice and then clicks on the area marked "ante" to transfer the chips. The player's balance gets appropriately reduced. The player then clicks on the "deal" button and five cards are dealt to the player and one to the dealer all face up. The player then decides whether he wants to play ahead or give up. In most online casinos the player's hand gets automatically rearranged to emphasize the poker hand ranking and a text message also indicates the ranking for the convenience of the player. If the player wants to concede then he clicks on the "fold" button and the table is cleared for the next wager. If the player wants to continue with the game then he clicks on the "raise" button. A bet equal to the ante bet is automatically transferred to the area on the screen marked "bet" and the player's account appropriately reduced. Simultaneously the remaining four cards are dealt to the dealer, the hands compared and payouts made. Online casinos usually display a text message indicating the dealer's hand ranking. Once the payout is made the player's balance increases by the appropriate amount if he has won.
In Caribbean Stud poker online casinos also offer a side bet with a jackpot. In order to be eligible for the jackpot the player clicks on the area designated as "side bet". A chip of unit credit is transferred from the player's stack and his balance appropriately reduced. He has to place the side bet before the cards are dealt. The jackpot bonuses are indicated on the screen. Most online casinos offer 2,500 credits for a straight flush and 25,000 credits for a royal flush. Some online casinos offer a progressive jackpot, in which case the current amount is displayed on the ticker.
After the hand is completed the player can click on the "rebet" button in order to play the next hand with the same bet or on the "double" button in order to play the next hand with a doubled wager. Alternatively he can place the wager as indicated earlier.
