Stud Poker

This unique and popular form of online poker is even more exciting when you play for huge Progressive jackpots!

Rules

The Progressive Caribbean Stud Poker game at the Casino conforms to the standard Nevada Gaming Commission rules.

In Progressive Caribbean Stud Poker, it's you against the dealer! The game is played on a table that resembles a Blackjack table. The table has marked places for your 'ANTE' bets and your Progressive Bets. Initial wagers - 'ANTE' are placed in the circles marked 'ANTE' and if you think your hand will beat the dealer's hand you can place an additional bet that is double your ante bet. Prior to dealing cards, you can place Progressive bets on any hand you have placed an ‘ANTE' bet on.

Progressive Caribbean Stud Poker is played using six 52-card decks that are shuffled after each hand is played. At this Casino there are 5 playing positions you can choose from and you can play up to 5 hands of Caribbean Stud Poker at the same time. Each hand played is a separate wager against the dealer.

After placing an 'ANTE' bet and optionally a progressive bet, each of the player's hands is dealt five cards face up. The Dealer is also dealt five cards but only one card is face up. Based on the strength of your hand and on the value of the dealer's face up card you must decide whether to increase your bet to maximize your winnings – 'CALL' or to minimize your losses – 'FOLD'.

In Progressive Caribbean Stud Poker, no additional cards are dealt. The player and the dealer compare hands formed from their five cards.

Objective

The goal of the player is to beat the dealer's poker hand. If the player places a progressive bet on the hand, the player wins the appropriate share of the progressive pot even if the dealer's hand wins.

In Progressive Caribbean Stud Poker, the dealer's hand must contain at least one ace and one king in order to qualify. If the dealer's hand does not qualify, you receive 1 to 1 on your ante and your bet is returned to you without winnings.

If the dealer's hand does qualify with a value of at least one ace and one king, the best hand wins. Your winning hand receives 1 to 1 on the ante plus the winnings on your bet calculated according to the winnings table.

If you fold you lose your ante whether or not the dealer qualifies.

If the dealer's hand does not have a minimum poker combination of an ace-king the dealer fails to qualify. If this occurs the game is over. Your bet is returned to you together with double your 'Ante' regardless of the value of your cards.

If the dealer's hand does qualify, it is compared to the your hand. If the dealer's hand has a higher poker combination then the player's hand, then you lose both your 'Ante' and your 'Bet'.

If the dealer's hand has a lower poker combination then the your hand, you win twice your ‘Ante' and you are paid out on your 'Bet' according to the paytable.

If both the dealer's and player's hands tie, the party with the next highest-ranking card is the winner. If there is an absolute tie, the player gets all their money back.

You always win on your progressive bet, even if the dealer does not qualify.
