5 Card poker
Caribbean poker is a card game, which has an object to collect the highest combination, higher than the dealer's one. One deck consisting from 52 cards from the two up to an Ace in each of four suits takes part in the game. The highest card in a suit is an Ace, the lowest is two. Before each game the deck is reshuffled.
Rules of the game on one box
One player playing against the dealer in this game. There are 5 game areas (boxes) marked on a game table. Each box contains 3 fields for bets: BET (the basic bet), ANTE (the initial bet), B (bonus).
Before each distribution the player does the initial rate - puts one or several game chips on the field ANTE. For this purpose it is necessary to click on corresponding chip and on the box on which it should be put. The bet on ANTE should be within the limits of the minimal and maximal value of bets for this table. Thus the player still should have enough money to change one card and put the bet. After that the player presses button DEAL.
The dealer deals 5 cards to each player and to himself. Cards are dealt one-by-one and put on a table face down. However last card of the dealer dealt face up.
The player looks on his cards and defines the value of the hand. Sooner or later the player should compare his hand with the dealer's hand. Whose cards are more valuable, that will be the winner. One card of the dealer lays on a table face up, and it is all information accessible to the player.
Every poker hand concerns to one of 11 poker combinations. The lowest combination ("no game") calls empty, the others - meaning. The type of combination is defined by rang of the received cards, and also their suits, but the order in which the player has received cards, has no value. The poker combinations below are listed in decreasing order. The brief data of various combinations are resulted below:
The higher combination you have, the higher is the value of the hand. In case there is two hands with the same combination the winning hand is the hand with the highest cards. For example:
There are no priorities between the colors. That is why two hands with the same combination and with the same rang of cards are equal. For example, hearts and clubs royal flush are equal.
After an estimation of the hand the player should make a choice. It is possible to accept one of three decisions:
Decision 1 To surrender immediately. The player presses button SURRENDER, he loses the bet ANTE, game is ended.
Decision 2 To continue game with available cards.
If the player makes a decision to continue game with available cards he presses button BET, thus the basic bet is, twice more, than the initial rate in box ANTE, is done automatically. Sometimes the described procedure name rise of the bet.
Decision 3 After estimation the winning chances, the player makes a decision to change one card in order to get better combination. For example if the initial combination is Q--9-8-7-6, it is possible to throw out the Queen and expect to get either 10 or 5 and have the Straight Flush. If you want to change the card, it is necessary to choose first of all unnecessary card, click on it and then to press button CHANGE. Changing of one card cost the sum equal to bet ANTE. The dealer in exchange gives out one new card. The player estimates five cards again and in case the card changing has brought to successful combination, makes a decision 2. If not, it is possible to stop game at once - making the decision 1. There are no other alternatives anymore.
After the player has made a final choice, the dealer opens his cards. In case he has a meaning combination (not empty) his hand is compared to the player's combination. If the hand of the player lower, he loses everything, that has put in the box. At equal combinations the player gets his bet back. The most interesting situation appears in case the dealer loses.
Bet ANTE will be paid in the ratio 1:1. But the basic BET is paid depending on the poker combination. Here the table of ratios:
If bet ANTE - 10 (the basic BET - 20), the general prize of the player with the combination Full House will be 150. With Royal Straight Flush the player will be paid 2010.
In case the dealer has an empty hand ("No Game") the player's combination will not influence on the payout. The player has already won even if he got "?? Game" combination. In this case its payout will be equaled to bet ANTE - no more and not less.
The player may bet on a bonus. For this purpose it is necessary to put chips on a field "B+". The bet on a bonus can be made only in case you have already put the ANTE bet. The bonus is played even in case the dealer doesn't have a game. If the player gets one of the winning combinations before changing a card, the bet on a bonus wins. If the player does not receive such combination from the first distribution the bet on a bonus loses.
Bonus payout doesn't depend on a maximum payout of the table, however each table has a minimal and maximal value of the bet on a bonus. The bet on a bonus wins without dependence from the result of the game (either the player win or lose).
Payouts on a bonus are made in ratios:
The Multibox Game
Key rules of game on the one box have been listed. We shall consider the basic differences of Multibox Game:
The player can buy one or two boxes. Thus it can choose any of five boxes on a poker table. Bets on different boxes don't depend from each other, it is possible to put 1 on the first box and 100 on the second.
After bets have been made, the dealer deals 5 cards face down on each box and to himself. Then dealer opens last card. The player begins to analyse cards on the first box and should make one of three decisions. Only after that he gets a permission to look on the second box cards.
The player has the right to make one exchange on the first and on each box. For each exchange the player can change only one card. As well as in a game on one box, the cost of changing 1 card is amount of the bet ANTE.
The player cannot change a card if he won't be able to make a bet on a current box after.
After the player makes a decision concerning current box (BET or SURRENDER) the next one takes it turn. If following box - 3-rd or if current box - is the last bought by the player, the dealer takes his turn in the game. The dealer opens the cards and compares the combinations with the player.
Each box is paid independently of one another one.
