A Caribbean Poker game can be fun and lucrative. It combines the fun of poker with the luck of a bonus draw. Poker players can test their skill in one facet and their luck in another (even though poker is half luck anyway). The rules are different than most poker games so make sure you read up before playing.
In a Caribbean Poker Game, you have the option to ante, bet and play the bonus. The ante and bonus are put out before the deal and the bet after you have seen your cards. If you don't want to bet, you can fold and forfeit your ante. If you play, you risk losing your ante and your bet (or winning on them).
The bonus is where the fun is. If you hit a bonus hand when you have money on the button, you could win thousands of dollars. Depending on the system (progressive or set), if you hit a hand such as a royal flush, you are going to a walk away with a huge amount of money.
Caribbean Poker Game Set Up
The set up is simple. The dealer is the house. There can be up to eight players, but most casinos will limit it to less. Everyone plays against the house meaning that one another's cards are inconsequential to each other. The object is to beat the dealer. Each player will get five cards face down and the dealer gets four cards down and one up.
