Caribbean Stud is a fast-paced variance of one of the most popular casino games out there. Similar to Evolution Gaming’s Three Card Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker is also played against the house rather than other players. However, instead of using three cards, both the player and the dealer are dealt five cards each.

The game uses a new standard 52-card deck for each hand, and it is available for both desktop computers and handheld devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Since it is played against the house, it can support an unlimited number of players at the same time.

Studio Description

Caribbean Stud Poker is streamed from Evolution Gaming’s studio in Riga, Latvia. The professional-looking studio is characterised by a mild gold background, and it gives off a sense of elegance and luxury.

The studio features more than one table, and while the dealer's voice is audible enough, you can also hear the murmur of other croupiers in the background, which only enhances the experience, making it more authentic.

There are numerous ways to win in Caribbean Stud Poker. In addition to the main game, Caribbean Stud Poker supports a 5+1 Bonus side bet, as well as the Jackpot bet. Here are the payouts for each type of bet.

Play Bet

After you’ve been dealt your initial cards, you will have the option to either fold or make a Play bet. The play bet is equal in amount to the ante bet. Play bet payouts are as follows:

  • One Pair or High card pays 1 to 1
  • Two Pairs pays 2 to 1
  • Three of a Kind pays 3 to 1
  • Straight pays 5 to 1
  • Flush pays 7 to 1
  • Full House pays 10 to 1
  • Four of a Kind pays 25 to 1
  • Straight Flush pays 50 to 1
  • Royal Flush pays 100 to 1

5+1 Bonus Side Bet

At the start of every round, you will have an option to place a 5+1 Bonus side bet. This gives you an option to use the dealer’s first face-up card to form Three of a Kind or better. If you manage to do so, you will receive a payout that is separate from the main game. In other words, even if you lose in the main game, you can still win a 5+1 side bet. 5+1 side bet pays out as follows:

  • Three of a Kind pays 7 to 1
  • Straight pays 10 to 1
  • Flush pays 15 to 1
  • Full House pays 20 to 1
  • Four of a Kind pays 100 to 1
  • Straight Flush pays 200 to 1
  • Royal Flush pays 1000 to 1

Jackpot Side Bet

The Jackpot side bet is another optional bet available in Caribbean Stud poker. If you place this type of bet and land Three of a Kind or better in the following hand, you will be able to win the progressive jackpot. The size of the progressive jackpot continuously grows each time someone places a Jackpot side bet, regardless of the casino they’re playing in. That is, as long as they’re playing Evolution Gaming’s Caribbean Stud poker.

In addition to the main progressive jackpot, players will also have an opportunity to win many other fixed jackpots included in the game.

  • Three of a Kind pays 3 for 1
  • Straight pays 10 to 1
  • Flush pays 25 to 1
  • Full House pays 50 to 1
  • Four of a Kind pays 250 to 1
  • Straight Flush pays 2,500 to 1
  • Royal Flush pays progressive jackpot

How to Play

Before you start playing, you will have to place the ante bet. After that, you will have the option to place the 5+1 Bonus bet or Jackpot side bet or even both of them.

Next, the dealer will deal five cards face-up to the player, while the dealer will receive one card face-up alongside four cards face-down. After seeing your cards, you will have the option to either fold, which forfeits your ante or make a Play bet which is the equal size of the ante. The dealer will then reveal their remaining four cards and, if you’ve made a Play bet, compare the value of your hand against theirs to determine the outcome.

One thing to note is that both the 5+1 bet and the Jackpot side bet are separate from the main game. For example, even if the dealer has a better hand and you lose in the main game, you can still win either of the two side bets.
