Progressive jackpot history
Caribbean Poker Jackpot is a poker-styled game that originated in the Caribbean islands. It is a variation of the Five-card Stud Poker that is played on a standard Blackjack-sized table. Once you enter the game at the 888 Casino you may choose whether you will be sitting at a private table or playing with other players at a public table.
This game offers a progressive jackpot; you become eligible to win the jackpot by placing an additional one chip bonus bet. By placing this bet you are in with a chance to win even when the dealer does not qualify. So if you are holding the Royal Flush in your hand you get 100% of the jackpot, Straight Flush gets you 10% of the jackpot, Four of a Kind 500 of your currency, a Full House gets you 100 of your currency and finally a Flush 50 of your currency.
The rules of the game are simple and fun. Your goal is to beat the dealer’s hand. In order to do this, the dealer must first qualify by having a King or Ace in his hand or a real poker hand (standard poker hands apply).You place an ante bet before the cards are dealt. You see one of the dealer’s cards and by knowing your own choose to either place a Challenge bet or Surrender. The challenge bet is always twice the ante and if you surrender you lose the ante. No additional cards are dealt and the dealer and you compare your five cards.
