How to Play Caribbean Stud Online

To begin the game you must place an ante bet, and then you’ll be dealt five cards. The dealer is also dealt 5 cards and one of those will be face up. Next, you must make the decision as to whether or not to play the hand, and this will be based on the cards that you are holding, and the little information that you have from the dealer’s face up card. One thing that you must keep in mind is that the dealer needs to qualify, i.e they must have at least an ace/king in order for you to receive a payout from the payout table on your hand, as if not you’ll be paid even money on the ante, and the main bet will be a push. If you decide to fold at this stage, before making a bet, you will lose the ante and the game is over.

Should you choose to play and believe that you have a better hand than that of the dealer, then your bet must be exactly twice the amount of you ante, for example if your ante is $1.00. then your bet must be $2.00. The dealer then reveals their cards and if they qualify and have a better hand than you, then you lose both the ante and your wager, however if you win you’ll be paid even money on the ante and your wager will be paid according to the hand you have......
