Live Caribbean Stud Poker Review
Live Caribbean Stud Poker is a live casino game from Evolution Gaming and is available to play here at Slot Boss. Our live casino has many different games but Caribbean Stud Poker differs hugely from the likes of Live Roulette and Live Blackjack. The thing that attracts most players to Live Caribbean Stud Poker is the chance to go straight up against the house and to be able to employ a strategy.
Carribbean Stud Poker is largely different than normal poker in the fact that it is played directly against the house rather than against other players, meaning no bluffing and deception. Every player on our table will be going directly against the dealer/house with the cards available on the table.
This live casino game comes from the Evolution Studio and is live streamed to Slot Boss players through a HD video link. The dealers here really help to liven up the table, often chatting with Slot Boss players who can communicate via the live chat feature.
How to bet
One of the best things about this game is the simplicity it offers and how easy it is to grasp the game mechanics. At the start of each round the player will choose their stake and place a wager on the “ante” section of the table. After this the dealer will deal five face up cards for the player and one face up card for themselves. At this point the player will be able to evaluate their hand and then will have to either play or fold. If a player thinks they have a weak hand or that the dealer will have a strong hand it could be advised to fold and forfeit the stake. If the player thinks they have a winning hand they must place a wager of double their ante bet in the play section. This means that the minimum amount to play this game is £3 per round (£1 ante and £2 play).
The dealer only qualifies to play if their hand contains an ace and a king, forms a pair or achieves any higher-ranked poker hand. If the dealer qualifies to play they will compare their hand directly against the player’s. Now there are several different payouts for this game, check out the tables below for these.
|Dealer does not qualify and you win||1:1||Push|
|Dealer qualifies and you win||1:1||Win*|
|Dealer qualifies and you lose||Lose||Lose|
|Dealer qualifies and you tie||Push||Push|
|*Play bet pays according to the play payout table below|
|Four of a Kind||25:1|
|Three of a Kind||3:1|
|One Pair or less||1:1|
The player can also place a 5+1 side bet at the beginning of a round. This will be won if the player’s five cards plus the dealer’s first face-up card creates a five-card poker hand of three-of-a-kind or better. The decision to fold or play with your original bet will not affect this. If the player achieves a royal flush with the side bet active they will win a massive 1000x their stake.
