At Lucky Nugget Casino live dealer Caribbean Stud Poker works in the way that it usually does, by simplifying elements of conventional Poker and adding extra wagering options. Players face off against the dealer only, rather than each other.
The first thing you need to do is place your Ante Bet, by moving your chips to the appropriate spot on the table. Thereafter, both you and the dealer will get 5 cards. In addition to being able to see your own hand, 1 of the dealer’s cards will face upwards and be visible to you.
Based on the 6 cards that you can see; you need to decide what you want your first live Poker move to be. Your options are to Fold and finish the round, in which case you’ll forfeit your Ante bet, or to Call and place another wager if you think you can win. If you Call, the dealer’s hand must qualify in order for the round to continue.
To qualify, the dealer’s hand must contain an Ace or a King. If your host isn’t holding either of these cards, the round ends and your wager pushes and is returned to you. When the dealer’s hand does qualify, it’s compared with yours according to the usual Poker rankings. If your cards rank higher, you win even money on both your Ante and Call Bets. The round is over, and you can choose to play again immediately.
There are 2 possible side bets in our Caribbean Stud Live Poker. Firstly, the 5+1 Bet involves all the cards in your hand as well as the dealer’s face-up card. These are considered together, and the best possible 5-card hand, according to normal rankings, is determined.
This hand might contain all 5 of your cards and omit the dealer’s or may include the dealer’s card along with any 4 of yours. Whatever the combination, you’ll be paid out if the hand contains Three of a Kind or anything higher.
Secondly, Caribbean Stud Live Poker players have the option of placing a Progressive Jackpot Bet. A portion of each of these side bets is added to a central pot, which grows progressively larger until someone wins it.
To win the Progressive Jackpot, you need to be dealt a Royal Flush. In addition, the side wager pays out fixed amounts if you’re holding Three of a Kind, Straight, Flush, Full House, Four of a Kind or Straight Flush.
If you meet the requirements for either side bet you will be paid out, regardless of what happens in the main game. Whether you opt to activate the 5+1 or Progressive Jackpot wagers or not, we can guarantee that you’ll enjoy the straightforward gameplay of the Caribbean Stud Live Poker variation.
