Caribbean poker has become the most popular new casino game in the last few years. If you like poker, you will love Caribbean Poker! The player plays against the dealer, independently of other players. Your goal as the player is to beat the dealer's hand. The exciting aspect of the game is that you can win big when you least expect it. The international payoff standard for a royal flush is 100 to 1. Some casinos also offer big $1 progressive jackpots and bonus payoffs!
In order to participate in the game, you must first place an "ante bet". Don't forget to add your $1 bonus bet! You are then dealt a hand of five cards; all of them dealt face up. The dealer also receives five cards; four cards dealt face down and one card face up. You then have to decide whether to challenge the dealer's hand or to surrender. If you wish to challenge the dealer you must place a bet, which is always equal to twice the ante. If you surrender you loose your ante.
When you receive a good hand, you naturally place a bet to challenge the dealer. When the bet has been placed, the dealer reveals his remaining four cards, and the hands are compared.
The dealer's hand must contain at least one ace and one king in order to qualify. If the dealer's hand does not qualify, you receive 1 to 1 on your ante, and your bet is returned to you without winnings.
If the dealer's hand does qualify with a value of at least one ace + one king, the best hand wins. Your winning hand receives 1 to 1 on the ante plus the winnings on your bet, which are calculated according to the below winnings table:
