In order to give you the best experience possible, we have teamed up with Evolution Gaming. Widely considered to be the leaders in the live gaming industry, Evolution Gaming offer a full range of products including Live Baccarat, Poker, Roulette, Blackjack, Casino Hold Em and Dream Catcher to name a few. In Ireland, one of the most popular Evolution Gaming casino games is Live Caribbean Stud Poker.
For online Poker enthusiasts, Caribbean Stud Poker is the perfect alternative to Texas Hold’em or 5-card Stud. In fact, this casino game combines many different aspects of Poker into one unique title where you compete directly against the dealer. Being a live dealer game, all the action is produced live and in real time. You also have the ability to chat to the dealer as well as the other players via the in-game chat window.
The Rules of Caribbean Stud
The rules of Caribbean Stud Poker are similar to those of classic online casino 5-Card Stud.
Once you have logged into the game, you can start betting as soon as the next round begins. On the screen a timer will appear which counts down the amount of time left to place your bet. To start off you need to place the ante bet. This can be done by clicking or tapping on the virtual chips and placing them in the highlighted area on the table.
Once the betting timer has run out, the bets will close and the dealer will start the game. After betting, the dealer will deal you 5 cards face up and himself or herself 5 cards, all facing down, except for the 5th card, which is flipped up so you can see. At this point the betting will open and you can either place a call bet, which is exactly double the ante bet, or you can choose to fold.
Placing the Call Bet or Folding
This is where the casino online Poker betting strategy comes in. The aim of Caribbean Stud Poker is to beat the dealer by creating the highest Poker hand with a single deal. The idea is to analyse the strength of your hand and try and predict what the dealer will have based on their showing card. In this way, the game is a bit like Blackjack. In most cases, if you are dealt a pair or higher, it is best to call. If you are not dealt any pair and you have a low scoring high card, it is best to fold and forfeit your ante bet.
Caribbean Stud Side Bets
After the second round of betting, the dealer will flip over his or her remaining cards and the two hands are compared. In this game, the dealer must qualify with an Ace or higher. If your 5-card poker hand is better than the dealer’s hand, you will be paid out accordingly. As with many of Evolution Gaming’s live casino games, you also have the option of placing a side bet.
The side bet here is called the 5+1 bet. This bet is optional and is placed at the start of the round at the same time as placing the ante bet. With a 5+1 bet, you are betting that you can create a 5-card poker hand of three of a kind or better using your 5 cards along with the dealers showing card. If successful, this bet pays out independently from the main Poker game.
