In the past decade, the game of Caribbean Stud Poker has become enormously popular as an online game. The reason that Caribbean Stud Poker has earned itself such a following is that it is fast paced, simple to learn and combines certain elements of poker without the need to learn the intricate skills of the game.
Cryptologic, one of the industry’s leading software companies, has released its own version of Caribbean Stud Poker that presents all the great features of the game, as well as an extra progressive jackpot feature that makes this game extra fun and extra lucrative. The game is also known as Spice Island Poker at Cryptologic online casinos.
Essentially, Cryptologic’s version of Caribbean Stud Poker is played with one standard deck of 52 cards. There are no wild cards in this game, meaning that no other card can substitute for another to form a winning combination.
Wagering options in Caribbean Stud Poker range from $5.00 to as much as $300 per hand! This means that budget oriented players, as well as high flying highrollers will feel equally at home playing this game.
Winning at Cryptologic Caribbean Stud Poker is according to a predetermined paytable. This paytable is standard, except that the payout on the Royal Flush is 200 to 1, instead of the usual 100 to one.
Payout is as follows:
1 to 1 on one pair or less; 2 to 1 on two pairs; 3 to 1 on three of a kind; 4 to 1 on a straight; 5 to 1 on a Flush; 7 to 1 on a Full House; 20 to 1 on Four of a Kind; 50 to 1 on a Straight Flush and 200 to 1 on a Royal Flush.
One of the most attractive features of Cryptologic’s Caribbean Stud Poker is its progressive jackpot. Players can place a side bet for a relatively small amount and stand in line to win a very large jackpot that continues to grow with every wager placed on this game across the internet at Cryptologic casinos. Reset values depend on the online casino.
All in all, Cryptologic has taken a very popular game and customized it to suit its own players’ preference, including top of the line Crypto graphics and sound features (which many argue are unbeatable) as well as a more than generous progressive jackpot that is hit often enough to keep players coming back for more each time!
