Online Casino Games - Rules Explained

Caribbean Stud® Poker

Progressive Jackpot Poker

The objective of playing Caribbean Stud Poker is to get a five-card poker hand that beats the dealer’s hand. Unlike many online blackjack, poker and roulette games, Caribbean Stud Poker features a Progressive Jackpot award.

The game is played using a single deck of cards, which is shuffled after each round.

How to Play:

  • Choose a chip by clicking on it. Click again on the Ante Circle to place that chip on the bet. You can bet multiple chips of multiple values, providing you do not exceed the maximum betting limit.
  • Right-click on a chip if you wish to remove from the bet. Press Clear Bets if you wish to remove all chips from the table and start again.
  • Press Deal when you have placed your bets.

Note: There is also an option to place a side bet on the Progressive Jackpot game. This will be explained in detail in a section below.

Concluding the game:

Both you and the dealer are dealt five cards. Your cards will be face up (showing), whereas the dealer will have one card face up and four face down. No new cards are dealt after this in Caribbean Stud Poker. You will be given the following options:

  • Fold = End the game and forfeit your Ante stake.
  • Call = Double the stake and play out the game.

When you select Call, the dealer will reveal their cards.

  • If the dealer has a lower ranking hand than an Ace/King combination, they do not qualify. You will be automatically paid even money on the Ante (first) Bet and the Call (second) Bet is returned.
  • If the dealer reveals a hand that is better than yours, you will lose both the Ante and Call bets.
  • If you have a hand that is better than the dealer’s hand, you will be paid even money for the Ante Bet and be paid according to the Payout Table for the Call Bet.

When the game has been concluded, you will be given the option to Rebet (place the same bets as the previous round) or New Game (start a new game from the beginning).

Note: the payouts for winning hands are shown on the right-hand side of the screen.

Progressive Jackpot Side Bet:

The Progressive Jackpot Side Bet is independent from the main game. The cost for entry to the Jackpot game is shown beside the coin slots of the Ante Circle. Click on the coin slot to place the Jackpot bet.

You will win a payout if you achieve any hand shown on the Progressive Jackpot Payout Table (on the left-hand side of the screen). Getting a Royal Flush will award the entire Jackpot amount. The current Jackpot award is shown in the display on the left-hand side of the screen.

Note: the dealer does not need to qualify, nor do you need to beat the dealer’s hand, to win in the Jackpot game.

A Progressive Jackpot is funded by taking a percentage of each player’s bets on the game. The casino will also provide a base amount, which is called a seed.

The Progressive Jackpot is awarded and funded as follows:

Seed (amount provided by casino to fund Jackpot) = 5000 x Jackpot Bet.

Contribution Rate (amount taken from each bet to fund Jackpot) = 75%.

Win Requirement (result needed to win Jackpot) = Royal Flush.

Win Condition (how to be eligible for Jackpot) = Play Jackpot Side Bet.

Return to Player:

The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) for Caribbean Stud Poker ranges between 97.44% and 90.33%.

Buttons:

The following buttons appear on screen and are used to play the game:

Clear Bets – remove all chips from the table.

Call – place another bet and play out the game.

Fold – end the game and forfeit your bet.

New Game – start a new round.

Rebet – start a new round and automatically place the same bets as the previous round.

Deal – deal the cards/start the game.

Casino Toolbar:

The Casino Toolbar runs along the upper and lower edges of the screen. It contains the following tools and displays:

Game Balance – displays your current available balance at the casino.

Cashier – this is the main banking tool at the casino. Use it to make deposits and withdrawals, or to access banking history options.

Play for Real Money – this button will only appear when you are playing in Fun Mode. Select it to play Caribbean Stud Poker online for real money.

Menu – select this to access the following tools:

  • History – view recent game results.
  • Options – adjust settings, including graphics and audio.
  • Help – load this help text.
  • Online support – access online customer support.

Close – click to close the current game tab and return to the casino lobby.

Quick Deposit – use this tool to make fast deposits without opening the Cashier. The Quick Deposit tool may appear in a pop up window (once per session only) when your balance is running low.

Gadget Bar – when it is available, the Gadget Bar will appear on the right-hand side of your screen. It could contain information on the latest online casino bonuses at William Hill, or allow you to play mini casino games alongside the current game.

Note on Disconnections:

If you lose internet connection during a game round, you will be redirected back to the game when you re-establish internet connection and log into the casino. You will be able to continue playing the round from where you left off.

Note on Malfunctions:

A malfunction will void all bets, with the stake returned to the player.

How to play casino games

Here's a rundown of some of our most popular online casino games, including how to play them, and which offers the highest payouts.

Online slots

Online slots are played more than any other online casino games. They’re relatively simple to play, which makes them a great option for beginners. Slots can also offer large payouts, particularly for a jackpot win.

Playing slots online is very straightforward. The simplest form of online slots are three-reel slots, which are based on the traditional fruit machines you may have seen in arcades. In these slots, you’ll see three columns and three rows of symbols, with the middle row being the payline. You place your bet and spin the reel, and if you get a winning combination, you win the amount stated on the paytable.

There are many other kinds of slots online available at William Hill Canada, such as five-reel slots and video slots, but they essentially work in the same way. While the odds of winning at slots are slimmer than other online casino games, they do allow you to play with small stakes on a wide variety of slots. Slots with a jackpot offer a larger prize pool, so let’s have a look at those next.

Jackpot slots

The main difference between regular online slots and jackpot slots is that the former have a lower maximum payout. With jackpot slots, however, there are larger top prizes, sometimes offering up to a seven-digit win on just a single spin.

While 'jackpot' can refer to a fixed huge cash prize awarded during jackpot games, the term is also used to describe progressive slot games. For fixed jackpot slots the size of the jackpot is, well, a fixed amount. With a progressive slot, the size of the jackpot increases each time a player places a bet on the game. Progressive jackpot slots are a great way to add to your online gambling experience. These games can offer some of the most exciting experiences of all casino games, as they provide you with the chance to win the biggest payouts you'll find online.

Online roulette

Online roulette games consist of a wheel with spaces that are either red or black and are numbered from 1-36. This popular game is easy to learn and even easier to play. All you need to do is predict where the ball will land and place your bet. The roulette wheel then spins, and if it lands on where you placed your bet, you win.

You may think that only one variant of roulette exists in online casinos, as this is typically the case at real-world casinos. However, at William Hill Canada, you’ll find multiple variants available, including a European version with one zero, and an American version with two. You’ll also find a French version that offers slightly improved odds if you bet on an even-money proposition.

Online blackjack

To win at online blackjack, you need a higher number than the dealer without exceeding 21. You are dealt two cards and can ask for another card as many times as you want before you reach 21.

One of the great things about playing online blackjack is the number of variants available. At a real-world casino, you’re restricted to just one or two games, but you'll find more here at William Hill Canada, including Blackjack Scratch, Royale Blackjack, and Blackjack Super 21.

Live casino games online

This is where online casino technology really comes into its own. Some players enjoy the thrills provided by a real-life casino but also enjoy the convenience of playing online. Live casino offers the ultimate experience to these players. The only difference between playing live casino at home and playing at a land-based casino is that with the former, the action is live-streamed to your device.

You’ll be playing at real tables, with real cards, and with real croupiers dealing your cards or spinning the wheel. Depending on the game, you'll also be playing with other players from all over the globe. With the ability to enjoy live chat with both players and the dealer, live casino offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy an immersive experience while playing your favourite casino games online.

Enjoy free online casino games with casino bonuses

An online casino bonus is a great way to boost your balance with extra funds and make playing your favourite online slots even more fun. Casino bonuses come in a number of different forms and are applicable to a variety of online casino games.

Almost all casinos bonuses are subject to their own terms and conditions, but what you get back is certainly worth it. If you look at our current bonuses, you’ll see our welcome offer, along with any other offers we may have available. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all bonus, so just make sure to keep your eye on our bonus page in order to enjoy our selection of games the fullest.
