A very popular casino game also found in online casinos is the form of poker known as Caribbean Stud Poker which uses a five card poker hand but is played against the house rather than against other players. Online casino Caribbean Stud is very straightforward and is a good introduction to poker as it will teach you the value of hands but as there is no bluffing or exchanging of cards there is little or no skill involved and if you have the better hand you win. In an online casino to play Caribbean Stud Poker you simply place an ante bet and click the deal button; you will receive a five card hand of poker and the dealer will be dealt one card. Your decision is simply whether you think you can beat the hand of the dealer when their next four cards are dealt; if you think you can you click the raise button which will add to your table stake twice the value of your ante; if you do not think you have a good enough hand you can simply fold at this stage but you will lose your ante bet regardless of what the dealer has. If in the online casino version you have placed your raise bet, the dealer will receive four more cards and the hands will be compared and the best hand wins. There is however one more twist to be taken into account and that is that the dealer must have what is called a qualifying hand for your raise bet to come into play which is an Ace and a King or better. If the dealer does not have a qualifying hand your raise bet is returned and you are paid even money against your ante. Better hands in Caribbean Stud can also pay out at higher odds so check the table at your online casino for details. A similar poker game at Ladbrokes online casino is called Cyberstud Poker but either Cyberstud or Caribbean Stud are well worth a try if you are new to poker..
