Internet poker has become world acclaimed as of late, with televised tournaments and celebrity poker game events. The games popularity, though, arcs back quite a bit farther than its television scores. Over the years several variations on the earliest poker game have been developed, including a few games that are not in reality poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is 1 of these games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is most closely resembling vingt-et-un than traditional poker, in that the gamblers bet against the bank instead of the other players. The winning hands, are the long-standing poker hands. There is no concealment or other kinds of concealment. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up just before the croupier declares "No further bets." At that moment, both you and the casino and of course all of the other gamblers attain five cards. After you have seen your hand and the bank’s initial card, you need to either make a call bet or give up. The call wager’s value is equal to your beginning ante, indicating that the stakes will have doubled. Bowing out means that your ante goes instantly to the house. After the bet is the showdown. If the bank does not have ace/king or better, your bet is returned, including a figure on par with the initial bet. If the casino does have ace/king or greater, you succeed if your hand beats the casino’s hand. The dealer pays out money even with your ante and controlled odds on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • 2-1 for 2 pairs
  • three to one for three of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • five to one for a flush
  • 7-1 for a full house
  • twenty to one for a four of a kind
  • fifty to one for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
