Rules/Objective of the Game:
In Caribbean Poker the player plays against the dealer. Your must beat the dealer’s hand.
To participate in the game, you must first place an ‘ante bet’. You receive a hand of five cards, all of them dealt as dark cards. The dealer also receives four dark cards and one open card. No new cards are dealt. The player and the dealer compare their hands formed from their five original cards.
Caribbean poker is played with a deck of 52 cards. You must decide whether to make a bet and challenge the dealer’s hand or to surrender after to look your hand ad the dealer’s open card. Press the ‘BET’ button if you wish to change the dealer. The bet is equal to twice the ante. If you don’t wish to challenge the dealer’s hand, you must opt to press SURRENDER and loose your ante.
When the bet has been placed, the dealer reveals his remaining four cards, and the hands are compared.
The Dealer Must Qualify:
In Caribbean poker, the dealer’s hand must contain at least one ace and one king (like in the example) in order to qualify. If the dealer doesn’t qualify, you receive 1 to 1 on your ante, and your bet is returned to you without winnings.
If the dealer’s hand does qualify with a value of at least one ace + one king, the best hand wins. Your winning hand receives 1 to 1 on the ante plus the winnings on your bet, which are calculated according to the payouts table (at bottom of page).
