Stud Poker @ Online-Poker.com
Caribbean Stud Poker may remind you of those late night games with the boys, where
you turn to five card stud at the end of the night to tidy up the evening.
In this case though it's everyone against the dealer, not each other.
As the name suggests this game originated in the Caribbean islands and via
cruise ships and vacationers slowly crept up to the mainland United States
of America. With it's popularity remaining high its hard to find a land
based casino these days that doesn't carry this card game.
One of its main claims to fame is the fact that Caribbean stud was the first
table game ever to feature a progressive jackpot. Although the jackpot bet
is a horribly bad one (unless the jackpot itself if extremely high and there
is no maximum payout), it still ads a unique feature that is also fun to
play, with the potential for higher than normal payouts. Slots and video
poker players may find this a fun way to transition to table games, as the
complexity level is not high, and you learn a lot (including the basics
of every poker game known to man).
Finding Caribbean stud poker at an online casino is not always as easy.
