Description and Objective
Caribbean Holdem Poker is a sister game to the already successful Caribbean Stud Poker. In Caribbean Holdem Poker, you play a variation of Texas Holdem against the Bodog Online Casino. You can win the progressive jackpot with a Royal Flush on the first five cards (two player cards and three community cards). You can also win an optional bonus for a progressive jackpot with at least a Flush on the first five cards and a better hand than the dealer’s hand. Caribbean Holdem Poker shares a progressive jackpot with Caribbean Stud Poker allowing the jackpot to accumulate quickly.
Click the chips to place a bet within table limits, then click Deal. Table limits are displayed in the lower, left-hand side of the game.
The dealer is dealt two cards face down and you are dealt two cards face up. Three community cards (called the “Flop”) are dealt face up. You predict whether or not your five-card poker hand will beat the dealer’s hand. If you believe your hand will be as good or better than the dealer’s hand, you Raise. If you believe the dealer will have a better hand, you Fold. Clicking the Raise button makes an additional bet that is twice the Ante. Clicking Fold forfeits the Ante and ends the game.
Two more community cards are dealt face up. There are now five community cards that both you and the dealer can use to make the best five-card poker hand possible. Some or all of the five community cards can be used to make the best five-card poker hand. If you did not Fold, and the dealer qualifies, your hand is compared to the dealer’s hand to determine the winner. The Dealer qualifies by getting any hand containing a pair of 4’s or better.
