There are very many Irish people who enjoy online gambling of all sorts and in particular at an online casino where the choice of casino gambling games is enormous but there are three which prove more popular than others and they are Roulette, Blackjack and casino slots. One casino gambling game which has not taken off in Ireland as much as in other countries is Caribbean Stud Poker. The first thing to mention is that Caribbean stud gambling is like no other poker gambling game as you are playing against the dealer only and not against other players and there is no bluffing or raising (unless you do it) which means that if you have the best hand you win. Gambling on Caribbean stud starts with you placing an ante bet which must be in accordance with the table limits but when considering the size of your ante bet bear in mind that any raise bet will be equal to twice your ante bet. Five cards are then dealt to the player and the dealer although only one of the dealer cards is face up. Your simple decision is then whether you think you can beat the dealer hand or not. If the answer to that question is yes then you place a raise bet and the cards are turned over and the winner revealed. When gambling on Caribbean stud the play is only valid if the dealer has what is called a qualifying hand which is generally an Ace/King or better. If this is not the case and you have placed a raise bet that bet is returned but your ante bet wins at even money. Another good thing about Caribbean stud gambling is that better hands than a simple pair will pay out at increased odds but clearly you cannot lose more than you have staked on the hand. Online gambling at your online casino playing Caribbean stud can be lucrative if luck is on your side.
