My Video review gives a quick overview, where I explain the playing rules and other aspects of the game.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”27127″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” link=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]There are other versions of Live Caribbean Stud poker but this is the only one to come with a 5+1 Bonus Side Bet and a Progressive jackpot.

Unlike other live casino poker games, Caribbean Stud poker is played with just two 5 card hands being dealt. The dealer gets one hand the player position gets the other. There are no community cards involved.  It’s a straight shootout, the best 5 card poker hand wins.

An unlimited number of players can play the “players” hand, which simplifies the dealing process and keeps the game quick.

Although the game is straight forward there are a few things that make it exciting to play.

  • The first card reveal of the Dealers hand.
  • The 5 + 1 Bonus Side bet
  • The Progressive Jackpot side bet.


How Evolution Live Caribbean Stud Poker is Played

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Caribbean Stud Poker starts with the player placing a mandatory Ante Bet.

Two Optional Side bets, the 5+1 Bonus and Progressive Jackpot can also be placed at this time.

5 cards are then dealt face up to the Player position.

The dealers hand is dealt face down, with exception of the first card which is left face up.

The player decides whether to play or fold the hand.

If he wants to play the hand he places a Play bet which must be equal in value to the Ante Bet.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]evolution live Caribbean stud poker[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]The initial Ante bet is lost if the player folds his hand.

If the player has folded, the Side Bets (5+1 Bonus and Progress Jackpot) are still “Live” and will pay out if won, regardless of what the dealer has.

Dealer Reveals his Hand

The dealer then reveals his remaining 4 cards.

The dealer needs a minimum of Ace King in his hand to qualify.

When qualifying the dealer is be able to make a payout for the Call Bet if the players hand has won. If the dealer hasn’t qualified the bet is returned to the player if he’s beaten or Tied with the dealer.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_separator][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

The 5 + 1 Bonus bet

This is an optional side bet that players can make when they place the initial Ante bet.

The 5+1 bet uses the players five cards and the dealers up card to make a 5 card poker hand. If the hand is Three of a Kind or better it wins.

The bet is valid through the whole game round, so even if the player folds his hand or is beaten by the dealer the side bet still pays.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]evolution live caribbean stud poker 5+1 Bonus Side Bet payout table
