How to Play Caribbean Stud Poker



It’s an exotic twist on things, with plenty of excitement and big winners all around. Kind of like Borgata itself.


Caribbean Stud is a five card poker game. To play, wager in the “Ante Box” before the dealer announces no more bets.


You receive five cards facedown and the dealer receives four cards facedown and one card face up.


Look at your cards, and play or fold.


If you choose to play, place a bet in the “Bet Box” equal to twice your ante.


If you fold, you lose your ante.


After all the players have decided, the dealer reveals his remaining four cards. If the dealer has an Ace and King or higher, he plays his hand. He compares his cards to each player’s cards, (right to left). If the player beats the dealer, the player wins even money on the ante and the bet behind is paid as follows:

1 Pair or Less 1 to 1
2 Pair 2 to 1
Three-of-a-Kind 3 to 1
Straight 4 to 1
Flush 5 to 1
Full House 7 to 1
Four-of-a-Kind 20 to 1
Straight Flush 50 to 1
Royal Flush 100 to 1
Maximum payout is $5,000 per hand on bet wager.




If the dealer does not have at least an Ace and King, the player receives even money on the ante, and no action on the bet behind.


If the dealer beats the player, the dealer takes both the ante and the bet behind.


If the dealer and the player have the same poker hand, the remaining cards in the hand are taken into consideration and the high hand wins. If all five cards are equal, no action is taken.


The PROGRESSIVE PAYOUT FEATURE is an optional extra. Play this by placing one dollar chip into the progressive bonus area after making your ante. This gives you a chance at the amount on the progressive meter regardless of the dealer’s hand.

Royal Flush Pool – 100%
Straight Flush Pool – 10%
Four-of-a-Kind $500
Full House $100
Flush $50

Players choosing to play the progressive feature are responsible for ensuring the slot indicator light is on.


Players may not exchange information regarding their hands. Violation will result in a dead hand and forfeiture of all wagers.


Incorrect number of cards to a player constitutes a dead hand for that player only.


One hand per player.


Supervisor’s decision is FINAL.


If an automated card shuffling device is not being used and the dealer is dealt four cards of a five-card hand, he deals an additional card to complete the hand. Any other misdeal to the dealer results in all hands being void and the cards reshuffled.


Each player is responsible for his hand. Only the player and the dealer may touch that player’s cards.


Each player must keep the five cards in full view of the dealer. Once each player has examined his cards and placed them facedown, they may not touch the cards again.


If a hole card is exposed before the dealer announces no more bets, all hands shall be void.




If multiple players qualify for a Royal Flush Progressive Payout during the same hand, the winners will share the jackpot equally as shown on the progressive meter when the first player with the royal flush is paid.
