Caribbean Stud Poker is a popular variant of traditional poker with a main goal of beating the dealer by surpassing the value of their hand. The origin of this card game is in the Caribbean, of course, where it was regularly played on cruise ships alongside with great cocktails we’re sure!

The game is played with a standard 52-card deck on a blackjack-type table and can be played with a maximum of nine players per table. 

The game starts with the ante and can be any amount within the table limits. You can choose to join the progressive jackpot by placing a wager on the jackpot section of the table. After the first bets have been placed, both you and dealer get five cards each. One of the dealer's cards will be dealt face-up and the other four cards face-down. All players’ cards are dealt face-down. Afterwards, you can either to fold (quit and loose the original bet), or play on (to continue and double the ante bet is known as a call bet).

If you choose to go on, the dealer will check their cards. The dealer has to have a king and an ace (or higher), or you will win even money on the ante bet. Then, the additional bet is returned and the call bet will be a push. If the dealer has a king and an ace (or higher), your cards and the dealer's cards will be contrasted. If your hand is better than the dealer's, you’ll end up winning even money (1:1) on the ante bet.
