All hail Michael Titus – without him there would be no Caribbean stud poker jackpots.
Titus introduced the idea of adding a progressive jackpot to the game after deciding that players needed a better chance of winning. He shared his ideas with the game’s owner Danny Jones and since then the game hasn’t looked back.
Now, few people would recognise Caribbean stud poker without its jackpot and even fewer people would play it. Fortunately Caribbean stud poker jackpots are part and parcel of pretty much every online casino offering.
Adding a progressive jackpot to Caribbean stud poker doesn’t really change the way that you play the game at all. In fact, all it does is mean that you win more when you get good hands.
Obviously a royal flush is the ideal hand and this is where most Caribbean stud poker jackpot games will pay out on the big prize. However, other top hands are often also increased by the jackpot.
These hands can be worked out as a percentage of the jackpot total or they may just be a high set amount. Either way, winning the top prize isn’t the only way to win big when playing progressive jackpot Caribbean stud poker.
Payouts can range from 2:1 for a pair all the way up to 1000:1 on your raise, meaning that Caribbean stud poker is a game that can be very profitable as well as fun.
As almost every online casino has some form of Caribbean stud poker game, there are obviously quite a few around. But frustratingly they aren’t always named as simply as you might like. So to save you the trouble of what isn’t and more importantly what is a Caribbean stud poker jackpot game we’ve listed a few of the most popular versions below.
32Red is home to Microgaming’s Progressive Cyberstud.
Welcome Bonus: £160
Playtech Casino Stud Poker can be found at bet365 Casino.
Welcome Bonus: £150
Mr Green is the place to be for Net Ent Caribbean Stud Poker
Welcome Bonus: £200
The obvious headline when it comes to Microgaming Caribbean Poker is that the progressive jackpot starts at an impressive £50,000. But believe us; it grows much, much bigger than that.
Unfortunately it does have a bit of a silly name but Progressive Cyberstud still keeps the players coming in as it offers everything that you would expect from a jackpot Caribbean stud game.
Playtech make use of a side bet to allow you to be eligible for the Caribbean stud poker progressive jackpot. Of course we thoroughly recommend that you play the side bet.
As with most games, to win the jackpot here you must raise and draw a royal flush, however if you aren’t that lucky then there’s other prizes to be had as well. Namely this comes in the form of a straight flush which provides you with a win of 10% of the progressive jackpot.
Similarly to the Playtech version, the Net Entertainment Caribbean Stud game requires you to place a side bet in order to stand a chance of winning the progressive jackpot.
Again the royal flush is your ticket to the big money as it provides you with 100% of the jackpot which increases steadily and is often found at £250,000+. If you don’t happen to get that lucky, then there are still extra payouts which start at 5:1 for a three of a kind and work their way up to a generous 2,500:1 for a straight flush.
The larger side bet payouts make this game look much more enticing than the other games listed here. However, it’s worth noting that there’s a cap of £50,000 on all wins except for the jackpot. We would suggest as the payouts are so much bigger, it’s likely that they are sparser than in the other games.
