Poker is the quintessential card game, and everyone who loves to gamble knows poker like the front of their hand and is always looking for a good game. Well, if five card stud is your preference, we’ve got an excellent game for you to try out at Redbet Casino. Caribbean Stud Poker is only a little different from your typical five card stud, but is just as fun and is an interesting take on the game.
In Caribbean Stud, you’ll be competing against the dealer, as opposed to the other players. Every player, including the dealer who you’ll be playing against, is dealt five cards that all sit face down, with only one of the dealer’s cards showing. Each player is allowed to look at their own hand, and can then decide what action they want to take. In Caribbean Stud, the minimum raise is double the ante bet at the beginning. Then all of the cards are revealed to see if the dealer won or if the players did. There is also a side bet in Caribbean Stud that is very unique. Any player that gets a three-of-a-kind or better can win the side pot, and there is also a pot that gets larger and larger and is the jackpot dealt out to any player lucky enough to have a Royal Flush – meaning they have a 10, Jack, Queen, King, and Ace of one particular suit.
Since you are only competing against the dealer in Caribbean Stud, everything gets simplified. All you need to worry about is whether you are going to raise, call, or fold. Since you only have to beat the dealer, it is strongly suggested that you raise whenever you have at least a pair, since your winning odds would already be good. This game is certainly an interesting, simplistic take on five card stud, but because it is simplified, the odds of winning are in your favor mathematically, so long as you don’t bet stupidly.
The basic rules of normal poker still apply; for instance, if you have two 8’s and the dealer’s visible card is an 8, you know that the odds of him having a pair of 8’s in his hand are statistically low, and should raise off of that. Because the minimum raise is double the ante, you need to know for certain if you’re ready to commit. Caribbean Stud is a lot of fun, goes very quickly between rounds, and is available at Redbet Casino.
