Poker has become globally famous recently, with televised competitions and celebrity poker game events. Its universal appeal, though, arcs back in fact a bit further than its TV ratings. Over the years many variants on the first poker game have been developed, including a few games that are not in reality poker anymore. Caribbean stud poker is one of the above-mentioned games. Regardless of the name, Caribbean stud poker is more closely related to 21 than traditional poker, in that the players wager against the casino rather than each other. The winning hands, are the established poker hands. There is little concealment or different kinds of deception. In Caribbean stud poker, you are expected to ante up before the dealer announcing "No further wagers." At that point, both you and the dealer and of course every one of the different players acquire five cards each. After you have seen your hand and the bank’s initial card, you need to either make a call wager or bow out. The call wager’s amount is akin to your beginning bet, which means that the stakes will have doubled. Surrendering means that your bet goes instantaneously to the bank. After the bet is the conclusion. If the house does not have ace/king or greater, your wager is given back, plus a figure equal to the original wager. If the casino has a hand with ace/king or greater, you win if your hand is greater than the casino’s hand. The casino pays out cash even with your ante and set odds on your call bet. These odds are:

  • Equal for a pair or high card
  • two to one for 2 pairs
  • three to one for three of a kind
  • four to one for a straight
  • 5-1 for a flush
  • seven to one for a full house
  • twenty to one for a 4 of a kind
  • 50-1 for a straight flush
  • one hundred to one for a royal flush
