In Caribbean Stud Poker you are trying to beat the dealer’s hand.
The first thing you have to do on this online table game is select your buy-in stake. This is your Ante wager. Click on the relevant chip to choose your Ante stake and then click the Ante area on the game table. You can also play for the progressive jackpot by placing a chip on the red button on the side of the table. Once you are happy with your stakes, press play, the cards will be dealt and you now decide what to do with your hand. The side bet payouts are dependent on the dealer’s hand, unlike the main game, but still worth chancing.
It’s raise or fold time. To carry on you must raise your stake. If you fold then you lose your initial bet. Your hand is compared to the dealers once you have raised your stake. If the dealers hand qualifies, the hands are compared and the best wins. Throughout Caribbean Stud Poker you will see the Royal Flush, Full House and three and four of a kind. Enjoy the tension and terror of wondering whether or not to fold or play on. Play Caribbean Stud Poker on the Sky Vegas online casino today!

Place your bet
Choose a chip value and click the 'ante' button to place your bet.
Click on the red button above the ante betting area to place a £1 (or currency equivalent) progressive side bet.
Now click the Deal button to play. Use the Clear button if you wish to remove your bet from the table and choose another stake. Click; Double – to double the value of all bets on the table.
Five cards will be dealt to you (your ‘hand’) and five to the dealer. The dealer’s fifth card is placed face-up (the ‘upcard’). The preceding four are face-down, hidden from your view.
Based on the strength of your hand, you must now decide whether to play on and bet, or to fold. You will need to play on in order to win the progressive bet. The example shows a player with a High card only; this is not a particularly strong hand. The dealer has a weak leading card also…a difficult “middle of the road” choice is required.
Tip: You should take into account the strength of the dealer’s upcard. If their upcard is strong, it is more likely that the dealer has a good hand. Remember that the dealer can only play if his hand contains an ace, king or higher (any of the card combinations shown on the left of the table).
If your hand is weak and you do not wish to play on, click the Fold button. You would automatically lose the game and your ante bet stake and your progressive bet.
If you choose to play on and ‘raise’ the bet, click the RAISE button
A stake of exactly twice the amount of your ante bet will be deducted from your balance and will automatically appear on the BET image on the table.
The dealer’s cards will now be revealed and compared to your hand.
If the dealer’s hand does not contain an ace, king or higher, the dealer is unable to play their hand. You, the player, then receive even money (1 to 1) on the ante bet, and the raised bet stake is returned to you (a ‘push’). Any progressive bet winnings will also be paid.
If the dealer has an ace and king or better, the dealer will play their hand.
If you beat the dealer’s hand, you will be paid evens on your ante bet. You will also win a sum based on your raised bet, calculated according to the strength of your hand. The odds on this bet are listed on the left of the table. Any progressive bet winnings will also be paid.
Example: if your raised bet is £5 and your winning hand contains two pairs, you will be paid 2:1 on your stake of £5, which totals £15.
If the dealer’s hand beats your hand, you lose your ante bet and your raised bet. Any progressive bet winnings will paid.
The table below details poker hands and their payouts. Possession of any of these hands does not automatically win you the game – as the dealer may have another, stronger hand than your own.
