##Welcome to Live Caribbean Stud
Caribbean Stud is a variation of five card stud played exclusively against the house. It features straight up wagers that involve no form of deception, including bluffing. In fact, both the dealer and player can see all the player's cards face up. It is the player's prerogative to determine the course of the game based on his or her cards.
Live Caribbean Stud is a live online casino game that brings this popular brand of poker right to your living room or office by way of your computer or mobile device. Like all our live online games, you can play from virtually anywhere. You can also play on your schedule. You are not locked into having to visit a land-based casino just to play.
Evolution Gaming designers have created a fantastic interface that is as easy to use as the game is to play. There is nothing complex here. Your video screen will show the live table and the dealer with the shoe. Depending on the position of the table you have chosen, you might also see additional tables and dealers. All of them are playing the same game.
You view the game through a live video feed that captures every bit of action as it happens. At the bottom of the screen are three computer-generated icons to give you control over the game. With the click of the mouse or a touch of your finger, you can place your wagers and watch the cards turn.
##Playing Live Caribbean Stud
Live Caribbean Stud is an easy game to learn because of the way it is set up. You start by placing your initial bet, known as the ante. In a traditional Caribbean Stud game featuring multiple players at the same table, each of the players would receive five cards face down. The dealer would also receive five cards, but one would be face up. In Live Caribbean Stud things are a bit different. Because only one player is allowed per table, all your cards are dealt face up.
The dealer's cards are dealt the same way. In order for the dealer to continue, he or she must have at least an Ace and a King or a higher hand that beats anything you have on the table. Otherwise, you automatically win the hand. Provided the dealer qualifies, you then decide to raise or fold. The winner is then evaluated, and the next hand dealt.
That is all there is to it. Live Caribbean Stud is one of the easiest poker games to learn. If you know how the various poker hands rank, you will be a pro at Caribbean Stud in no time.

##Live Caribbean Stud Bonus Features
The advantage of playing Live Caribbean Stud at our casino is found in a few bonus features that are not always available in the land-based casino setting. For example, take the 5+1 bonus bet. This feature allows players the opportunity to make the best five card hand they can using both their cards and the dealer's face-up card. To win, you have to score 3 of a kind or better. What's more, you win regardless of what the dealer is holding. With the right cards your payout could be 1000 to 1.
Another great special feature of Live Caribbean Stud is its progressive jackpot. Like the progressive jackpot in a video slot game, it grows with every player on the network who places a bet but doesn't win it. The progressive jackpot keeps growing until a winner is found. This is a side bet that could make you a winner irrespective of what the dealer has in his or her hand.
The progressive jackpot side bet is made even better by the additional opportunity to win cash even if you come up short on the original wager. The side bet pays out for three of a kind, straight, flush, full house, four of a kind, and the straight flush.
There may be no other form of poker that is as easy to play as Caribbean Stud. And thanks to our relationship with Evolution Gaming, you can now play Live Caribbean Stud in our online casino. We challenge you to play at least one game if you have never tried this brand of poker.
