Strategies For Winning Caribbean Stud Poker Games

There are many variations of the classic game of poker. Caribbean Stud Poker games are a well-known offshoot that are played against the dealer instead of against other people. You can play real money Caribbean Stud Poker games at Slot o Cash Casino, where we strive to not only provide you with the most high quality gaming on the Internet, but to take care of you as a loyal member as well. Here are our tips for becoming a pro in no time.

Before jumping in, make sure you know the rules. To begin, each participant receives a hand of five cards, which are face-down with the exception of one dealer card. You will put up an ante and have the option to make a $1 progressive side-bet. If you choose to fold, you forfeit both your cards and your bets, but if you raise then your wager must be the same as twice the ante. Now the dealer will reveal his or her remaining four, which must contain at least one Ace and a King in order to qualify. Basically, the lowest possible qualifying hand contains Ace, King, 4, 3, 2. If the house fails to have a qualifier, you win even money. However, if the house beats you, you lose your ante and raise.

As with most card games, there are some strategies that can increase your chances of success. There are two generalizations that work for most hands. First, always raise if you have a pair or better in your hand. Second, always fold when you have less than a dealer's qualifying hand. Another move is to raise if you have an Ace and a King, but when the following conditions are met: if the house has anything from a two through a Queen matching one of yours, if the dealer has an Ace or King and you have a Queen or Jack, or if the dealer's card does not match anything of yours and ranks less than the fourth best card in your hand which must contain a Queen. Although these aren't perfect formulas, they can help you at least minimize your losses and at best walk away with some good money. Try out your new skills today with Slot o Cash Casino!
