Players turn to the Caribbean for Poker
By philip
July 22, 2004, London, UK - As the popularity of poker reaches an all-time high, casino card rooms are busting at capacity and the games interest has now gone mainstream with TV shows, celebrity endorsement and magazine coverage. Recent statistics now show that poker alone is responsible for over $80 million a day changing hands!

But the excitement isn’t limited to traditional card room floors, as VIP Casino (www.vipcasino.com) manager Kate Berkeley explains, “Poker’s popularity is increasing at an astounding rate with numerous variations to get everyone interested and in VIP Casino, the version that is getting the most attention is Caribbean Stud Poker”.

Caribbean Stud Poker is a player vs. dealer card game in which players are paid based on the ranking of their hand using the typical poker hand ranking hierarchy. “Magazines, TV and friend’s peers are teaching people the basics of poker,” explains Kate, “and once someone understands the basics of poker, they are often drawn to Caribbean Stud Poker because of its combination of high payouts and greater game control”.

Reviewed by accountants PriceWaterhouseCoopers, VIP Casino’s Caribbean Stud Poker pays out an average of 97.3% and when VIP player `Wayne` was asked what he thought of Caribbean Stud he stated, “I like games in which I can make decisions that will affect the outcome”.

Another attractive appeal of Caribbean Stud Poker is its progressive jackpot where, for an extra $1 bet, each player has a chance to win a guaranteed minimum jackpot of $100,000. Players can also win smaller bonus jackpots for any hand greater than a Flush. VIP Casino player ‘Goldie’ talks of her recent win, “I LOVE Caribbean Stud Poker! Even more so since hitting a straight Flush with a bonus the other week. I made a little over $17,000 on that hand and that will come in handy paying for my daughter’s school, vinyl siding on my house, but best of all, it paid for my season tickets for the Washington Redskins”.

“VIP Casino offers one of the largest progressive Caribbean Stud Poker jackpots on the Internet. That is what separates our game from our competitors and brings people to the casino. Once they join, and become VIP players themselves, it’s our personal touch and amazing promotions that keep them coming back,” concludes Berkeley.
