You need to start by placing a wager on the table and then once you are ready, hit deal. If you are playing Progressive Caribbean Stud Poker you need to place a side bet as well as your ante to be in with a chance of triggering the progressive jackpot when a Royal Flush hits. When the cards have been dealt, you and the dealer will be both receive a five-card hand. One of the dealer’s cards will appear face up for you and the other four will appear face down.
No more cards will be dealt or changed and you have to try and make do with the cards that you have been given. Your next move is to decide whether you want to stay in the hand or fold them. If you fold, the hand will instantly end and you will lose your ante bet (and side bet). If you decide to stay in the hand, you would hit the call button and this will instantly double the amount of your ante. The dealer’s four remaining face down cards will now be turned over for you to see.
The dealer will not qualify if his hand does not include an Ace/King combination or higher and you would end up with even money on the ante bet. This would be returned instantly. If the dealer’s hand does contain an Ace/King combination or higher, but you have an even better hand, you win even money AND you will also win a cash prize based on how strong your winning hand is (the hand values will be on display in the paytable). If the dealer’s hand is better than yours you will lose the initial ante and the bet.
