Caribbean Stud (EOL)
This game is End of Life but feel free to read about it here
With four different Caribbean Stud Poker versions, you have plenty of choice when looking for this kind of poker game, at least when you choose for one of the Netent Casinos. All Caribbean Stud versions found at the Netent Casino offer the exact same game rules, but there are some small differences between them, except for the progressive jackpot attached to the game as this one will be exactly the same for all four versions.
Caribbean Stud Poker versions
Once you know the game rules of one of the Caribbean Stud games, you can play all versions. The difference can be found in the betting options with two standard versions, one Low Limit and a High Limit version. The betting options of Caribbean Stud Poker (standard) and Caribbean Stud (standard) are the same with bets between 1.00 and 100.00. Perfect for the average player, although I recommend you to be familiar with the game rules. If this is not the case you can choose for the Low Limit version first as bets start as low as 0.10. But when looking for some extra excitement while playing Caribbean Stud, you can choose to play Caribbean Stud Poker High Limit and benefit from high betting options starting from 25.00 while going up to 500.00. But please only do so when your budget allows you too.
Caribbean Stud vs Caribbean Stud Poker
If the betting options of Caribbean Stud Poker (standard) and Caribbean Stud (standard) are the same with bets between 1.00 and 100.00, then what’s the difference between these two games? Why would Net Entertainment design two exact the same games? And yes it’s true, both games offer you the exact same betting options, and even the game rules are equal to each other, but that’s not where you should look for the differences between the two games as these can only be found in the design of the game and in some of the game functions. While Caribbean Stud Poker offers you a classic design, Caribbean Stud allows you to play in style due to a more luxuriously designed game. That’s actually all I can tell about the design as you should find out yourself. But if the standard bets will do for you, I would definitely go for Caribbean Stud as this version gives you the opportunity to play Caribbean Stud in style. Additionally this version also allows you to set up the speed of the game as well as extra audio options.
Caribbean Stud Jackpot
Just as the Caribbean Stud Poker versions, also Caribbean Stud is attached to the progressive Caribbean Stud Poker Jackpot which can be won when a bonus bet is placed after you’ve placed your ante, but before cards will be dealt. And no matter if you know how to play Caribbean Stud or you’re a beginner, you don’t have to be a poker expert to win this progressive jackpot. The moment you get a Royal Flush in hand, the jackpot will be yours. Besides that you can also benefit the bonus payouts going up to 2500:1 when having a Straight Flush.
With a theoretical return to player of 97.42%, Caribbean Stud may not be the most profitable card game offered by the Netent Casinos, the progressive jackpot and the bonus payouts do make up for it as they can make a huge different. With extra high payouts going up to 2500:1 or even the progressive jackpot, I can highly recommend to place a bonus bet, especially because these bonus payouts have nothing to do with your poker skills or whatsoever. They simply depend on the cards you get dealt.
Caribbean Stud basic rules
If you are already familiar with the basic rules of Caribbean Stud Poker, you are ready to play Caribbean Stud too as the game rules of both games are similar. In both games you’ll play against the house with only one goal to think about, having a better poker hand than the dealer if the dealer has a qualifying hand. You and the dealer both receive five initial cards while yours will be all visible, the dealer’s cards won’t, except for the first card. After cards have been dealt, it’s up to you to decide whether you want to Call or Fold. If your cards look promising, Call, if no interesting hand is showed, you can choose to fold. Fold for sure when the visible card of the dealer is higher than any of your cards as the chance the dealers wins is rather big. If you go for Call, do make sure you beat the dealer by having a higher ranked hand.
Caribbean Stud is a quick and simple casino form of poker, although this time no other opponents are involved, so it’s you against the dealer. Caribbean Stud is an exciting card game, not too hard to learn while also providing a progressive jackpot.
