Blackjack Craps Mini-Baccarat  Roulette | Mississippi Stud

Caribbean Stud


To beat the Dealer's hand.


  • Each Player begins by making an opening, or "ante", bet. Once all ante bets have been placed, the Dealer and the Players each receive five cards.
  • All cards are dealt face down except the Dealer's last card.
  • After viewing their hands and the Dealer's upcard, each Player then has two options: "calling the Dealer's hand" or folding. If a Player folds, his or her ante bet is forfeited. If a Player "calls the Dealer," another wager of twice the amount of the original ante must be placed.
  • After all "call bets" have been placed, the Dealer turns the remaining four cards face up. If the Dealer doesn't have at least an Ace-King, the Player receives even money on the ante bet, but no action is taken on the call bet.
  • If the Dealer does have at least an Ace-King, the Players' hands are turned up, and if they beat the Dealer, their call bets are paid according to the payout schedule. Ante bets are paid even money.
