The Rules of Caribbean Poker
 
The game of Caribbean (Stud) Poker originated in the Caribbean Islands, and soon spread to casinos in North America and Europe, becoming increasingly popular. Caribbean Poker is based on the card rankings of five-card stud poker, except that the player bets against the house instead of against other players. Caribbean Poker is played with one 52-card deck with no Joker, and the deck is reshuffled after each hand.
The player places an initial wager (ante), and receives five cards face up. The dealer also receives five cards; four cards face down and the final card face up. Now it's the player's turn to decide to stay in the game (raise) or fold. If the player decides to "raise", he/she must place an additional wager, exactly twice the initial "ante" wager. If the player decides to fold, he/she forfeits the "ante" wager. After the player has made his/her decision whether to raise or fold, the dealer reveals the remaining four cards. The dealer must "qualify" to play by receiving a poker hand consisting of an Ace/King or higher.

If the dealer's hand does not qualify, the player receives a 1 to 1 payout (even money) on his/her "ante" wager, and the "raise" wager is retuned without additional winnings. If the dealer's hand qualifies, the dealer compares his/her cards to the player's cards. If the player's hand is higher in rank than the dealer's hand, the player wins and receives a 1 to 1 payout on the "ante" wager, plus winnings on the "raise" wager, according to the payout table below.

If the dealer's hand is higher in rank than the player's hand, the player loses both "ante" and "raise" wagers.

If the dealer's hand and the player's hand "tie" (all five cards are identical in rank - suits are not considered), the "ante" and "raise" wagers are both pushes, and the bets return to the player.

Playing as Dealer


Online Casino Dealer Casino offers you the unique option of playing the role of the Dealer. This option increases your chances of winning, since you gain some of the favorable odds reserved for the casino. At the end of every round the casino takes a commission of 1.5% of the total bets bet against the Dealer.

Example
A Dealer chooses to play in Table I. This means that the Dealer meets the minimum requirements for playing in this table type: a minimum of 15 Credit Points and a minimum balance of $1010. The system then matches a Player to the Dealer and after the Dealer 'Approves' the next round, the Player places his/her bets on the table. Notice that the view of the table has changed to that of the Dealer's. Let's say the Player places $5 as an initial wager. The Player's hand consists of 'Q','3','7','Q','A', and the Dealer's upcard is a 'J'. The Player decides to 'Raise' his/her bet, and places an additional wager of $10. The Dealer's cards are then revealed to show a hand consisting of '4','J','K','K' and 'A'. The Player loses his/her bet and since the bet against the Dealer was $15 the casino takes a commission of 1.5%*15 = $0.23, which means the Dealer wins 15-0.23 = $14.77 on this round. The casino's edge in Caribbean Poker is approximately 5.3% (bear in mind that this percentage depends on the knowledge of the player in Caribbean Poker. Also, this 5.3% is how the casino makes a profit on Caribbean Poker) so as the Dealer you actually gain an edge of about 3.8%.

Minimum Credit Points and Balance
You can play as Dealer once you have accumulated enough Credit Points and in addition you need to have enough money in your Balance, according to the game's limits described in the Game Options page.

The Minimum Balance required is a bit higher than the total winnings of the Player in a given round, which are: (Maximum Bet) + 100 * (Maximum Bet) + 1.5%(Casino commission) * (3 * (Maximum Bet) )

Game Options
" Approve" Button / 'Auto-Approve' Feature
When playing as Dealer, before each round commences you must 'Approve' the next round. After you approve the round, the Player can place his/her bets and play the round. The 'Auto-Approve' feature lets you automatically approve the next rounds, without having to approve every round individually.

Disconnections
Communication problems over the Internet may cause sudden disconnections. We have designed our software to cope with such incidents in a manner that our clients will be protected from unjustifiable loss, while eliminating the possibility of intentional disconnections and/or system abuse.

Should a disconnection occur after the Dealer pressed the "Approve" button, play will continue until the Player has finished his turn. This has no effect on the Dealer, since the Dealer is played automatically according to the rules of the game.

After connection is re-established the Dealer can enter the "History" page and see the results of the last round ("History" is available for Money mode only).
