The opportunity to ‘win big’ certainly exists and it will quickly become obvious just how much fun it can be, for all who participate! If you’re looking into the most popular games to play, Caribbean Poker will undoubtedly make the top of your list. If you aren’t already a master at playing Caribbean Stud Poker, we would love to share some tips on how to play Caribbean Poker like a pro, the help you on your way.

Firstly, Caribbean Stud poker is played on a blackjack or similar sized table. The object is to play against the dealer and in order to win, you don’t need to beat other player’s hands, but the actual dealer’s hand. You will need to place an ante bet that is equal to the table minimum. This bet is placed in front of you and labelled “ante”. If you want to have a chance at winning the bonus jackpot, you can make an addition side bet. The cards are shuffled and you will receive five cards which are placed face-down. The dealer will also have 5 cards, except one of them is placed facing up.

After scrutinising your hand, you have the option of folding, forfeiting or calling another bet which is automatically double the amount of your original ante bet. Once all players have decided whether to fold or call, the dealer reveals the rest of his hand. The dealer wins if he has a qualifying Ace-King. If not, all players are paid out evenly. Any second bets do not win or lose. If the dealer loses to you, your ante bet is paid out and your call bet (if you placed one) is paid out according to a pre-determined payout table.

Now that you know how to play Caribbean Poker, here are a few tips that will help you to play like a pro:

  • Don’t rush the game. Typically, Caribbean Poker is slow paced.
  • Don’t play every hand just for the sake of playing. If you have an Ace-King or better, play your hand. If not, it’s best to fold.
  • Don’t be excessive in your bets. Always keep a cool head and play responsibly.
