. Casino games: Caribbean Stud Poker

The Caribbean Stud Poker is one of the more famous versions of the game and is said to get its name from the fact that it was very popular in the poker rooms of the luxury cruises travelling through the Caribbean. The peculiarity of this 5 card-game is that it is played against the house rather than against other players. Moreover, unlike the other poker versions, Caribbean Stud has a progressive jackpot which increases according to the players’ bets. The game is played with a 52 card-deck. Each player is dealt five cards face down in a clockwise rotation. The house is dealt four cards face up and the last one face down. A first round betting or ‘ante’ is accomplished prior to the dealing of the cards. When the dealer announes “No more bets”, players, according to their cards (which cannot be changed or discarded) can then decide whether leave the game or stay in. After all the players have made their decisions, the dealer reveals his four cards and, all the poker hands higher than the dealer’s are proportionally paid according to a scale raging from a 1 to 1 proportion for the couple to a 100 to 1 proportion for the straight flush.
