Poker : Caribbean Stud Poker

Caribbean Stud Poker was first introduced to casinos in 1988 from the Caribbean Island  918kiss of Aruba. Today, almost every casino carries Caribbean Stud Poker for it’s players.

In my opinion, its so popular because it is the first casino game to have a jackpot that can be won with just one dollar, rather similar to playing the lotto where a player can win a large amount of money for a small wager. The object of Caribbean Stud Poker is to beat the dealer’s five cards with your five cards.

The Ranking of Hands:

(1) Royal Flush 100-1

(2) Straight Flush 50-1

(3) Four of a kind 20-1

(6) Straight 4-1

(7) Three of a kind 3-1

(8) Two pair 2-1

(9) Pair of 10’s or better Even Money

Jackpot payoffs:

Royal Flush 100%

Straight Flush 10%

Four of a kind $500

Flush $50

Inside The Swag Bag:

The jackpot pays out only on the top five hands based on a $1 stake as seen above. There may however be a slight variation from casino to casino on the last three payouts of the jackpots. The dealer’s hand qualifies less than 50% of the time.

Always play on a full table, if all the other players fold their hand then make a bet. The chances are that more often than not, the dealer will not qualify and you will get paid out on the ante even if you don’t have a hand that qualifies. The dealer’s chances are now much less than 50% of having a hand that qualifies.
