By August 14, 2019May 4th, 2021No Comments

Some of the most popular games among RTG releases make a Caribbean poker trilogy. These are: “Caribbean Stud Poker“, “Caribbean Hold’Em Poker” and “Caribbean Draw Poker“. Regardless, they belong to the same series, there are some differences. In this post, we will reveal the main features of each of them.

Caribbean Stud Poker

This is the traditional five-card stud poker. In this game, the dealer must qualify with an Ace and King or a pair or better. If the dealer does not qualify, you win automatically. You have 1 deck available to make some of the winning hands like Royal Flush, Straight Flush, Four of a Kind, Full House, Flush, Straight, Three of a Kind, Two Pair, Pair, and High Card.

Caribbean Hold’Em Poker

This game is a saltwater variation of Texas Hold’Em which is known as one of the easiest forms of poker to learn. You are dealt two cards and the dealer is dealt two cards. Next comes the flop; three community dealt face-up. Fold and bow out or continue and see the next two community cards.

When you begin a game you have to place a mandatory ante bet, and this can be any amount you choose depending on your bankroll limitations. After you’ve made the ante wager by clicking the chip amounts you’d like to bet, a dealer will distribute two cards face up to form your hand, and two cards face down to form their own hand. Finally, the dealer will place three cards face up in the middle of the table. These cards are known as the flop. The goal of Caribbean Hold’em is to get a better five-card poker hand than the dealer.

Caribbean Draw Poker

This poker completes the trilogy of Caribbean games. In Caribbean Draw Poker, you are dealt five cards shown face up and the dealer is dealt five cards with four cards shown face down and one card shown face up. The goal of Caribbean Draw Poker is to get a higher-ranked poker hand than the dealer.

Once the player is dealt five cards they can fold or continue by selecting up to two cards to draw then selecting bet.  Betting will double the player’s original ante.  The dealer’s hand will also draw up to two cards.  The dealer’s hand must have a pair of 8’s or better to qualify. If the dealer’s hand does not qualify, you automatically win even money on the ante and keep your raised bet.  All other winning hands are determined by the highest-ranking poker hand, or in the event of a tie, by the high card.
