Craps Casino’s Caribbean Stud Poker is a
poker-style game, in which the player competes, one on one, against
the dealer. At the end of the hand, the player and dealer compare
hands formed from their five cards. The player’s goal is to beat the
Caribbean Stud Poker Rules:
Poker is played with a standard 52-card deck of cards. To start the
game, the players must first place an "Ante Bet". The dealer then
gives each player five cards face-up. (On Public and Group tables
the other member’s cards will appear to be dealt face down.) The
dealer also receives five cards; four cards dealt face down, and one
card face up.
When the player looks at his/her cards, and the
dealer's up card, the player either challenges the dealer's hand, by
placing a bet, or surrenders. The "Challenge Bet" is always equal to
twice the Ante Bet. If the player chooses to “Surrender”, the Ante
Bet is lost.
When a Challenge Bet is made, the dealer reveals
his four remaining cards, and the hands are then compared.
order to qualify, the dealer's hand must contain at least one Ace
and one King. If the dealer's hand does not qualify, the player
receives a 1 to 1 payout on their Ante Bet, and the Challenge Bet is
returned without additional winnings.
Should the dealer's
hand qualify (with a value of at least one Ace and one King), the
player’s and dealer’s hands are then compared, and the best hand
wins (see Poker Hand Value Chart below). A player’s winning hand
receives 1 to 1 on the Ante Bet, plus the winnings on their
Challenge Bet, which are calculated according to the hand’s value
(see “Payoff” column of Poker Hand Value Chart
When the dealer’s and the player’s
hands are equal, it is considered a “Push”, and both the Ante Bet
and the Challenge Bet are returned to the player.
