Caribbean Stud Poker is a casino version of poker that is very similar to Five Card Stud, the difference is that playing in a casino instead of playing against other players; you play against the house. No bluff or any other form of deception tactics involved. The dealer will not bend, no matter what we try to do, so do not waste your time trying to bluff.

Each player places his "ante" and then when the dealer announces "no more bets", each player, including the dealer is dealt five cards face down. The dealer will turn one of his letters, and all players are allowed to have a look at their own cards. No discussions are allowed with another person at the table. The player can decide to check or bet after the cards to hold and which cards they think the dealer may contain. Always travel with a pair or better; statistically more likely to beat the dealer with any partner. Do not play as high hands, the dealer will probably turn your hand in most cases. The final decision and the payment is based on a traditional poker hand to determine the winner.
