Caribbean Poker - Information About the Caribbean Poker Progressive Game

There aren't a whole lot of table games online with progressive jackpots, but Caribbean Poker (also known as Caribbean Stud Poker) by Cryptologic is one of them. Since online sites began tracking it in late 2009, it has paid an average of over $160,000 every time it's hit after working its way up from a reset value of $100,000. Its lone drawback is that it doesn't hit often – in fact it's gone well over two years without being won in the past.

To play for the progressive jackpot, all players have to do is make a small special wager along with their normal bet. Then it's a simple matter of being dealt a royal flush and not folding. Make that a simple matter in terms of decisions, not simple to win, as the chances of being dealt a royal flush are around 650,000-to-1. That means the jackpot pays out at a much lower rate than true odds, though still at a better ratio than than the capped payments found at non-progressive Caribbean Poker tables. Players can also win 10 percent of the progressive jackpot on a straight flush or smaller, fixed amounts for other good hands.

Add it all up and the Caribbean Poker progressive game may not be the best in terms of the odds, but it still might make sense for people who love table games to get in on some jackpot action, where the other choices are few. Cryptologic games are in many online casinos, though not all of them may operate the progressive version of the game. Some places to start hunting are Betfair Casino, Betsson Casino, InterCasino, Ladbrokes Casino and Party Casino.
