Introduction

Caribbean Poker is standard Five-Card Stud Poker with a slight twist:  one of the dealer’s cards is always displayed.  Players compete against the dealer, rather than other players.  The objective of the game is to beat the dealer’s hand.

Game Play

After placing the ante bet, the player and dealer each receive five cards; one of the dealer’s cards is dealt face up.  The player must now decide either to fold, if he does not think he can beat the dealer’s hand, or to raise and challenge the dealer.  If the player chooses to fold, he loses the ante bet and the game is over.  If the player chooses to raise, he bets an additional amount equal to twice the ante bet, the dealer reveals his remaining cards, a winner is determined, win paid if applicable, and the game is over.

 

To determine the game winner after the player has raised, the dealer’s hand must first “qualify”.  In Caribbean Poker, the dealer’s hand qualifies if it ranks as High Card with an Ace and a King or ranks as a Pair or better.  If the dealer’s hand does not qualify, the player wins 1 to 1 on the ante bet and “pushes” the raise bet (i.e. the player gets the raise bet back without winning or losing).

 

If the dealer’s hand does qualify, the best ranking hand wins.  If the dealer’s hand ranks higher, the player loses both the ante bet and the raise bet.  If the player’s hand ranks higher, the player wins 1 to 1 on the ante bet and wins the raise bet calculated according to the Raise Pay Table, below. If both the dealer’s hand and the player’s hand have the same rank, the highest ranking card determines the winner (for example, a Pair of Kings beats a Pair of 10s).  Finally, if the dealer’s hand ties the player’s hand both the ante bet and the raise bet are pushed back to the player.

 

There are three pay tables the casino can use to pay out winnings to players.  You can tell which pay table the casino is currently using by looking in the top left hand corner of the screen in the “Payouts” box.
