This version of Five Card Stud Poker includes a Progressive Jackpot with unimited potential. Each player including the dealer is dealt five cards with one of the dealers cards being face up.
Each player makes an ante bet prior to the deal and also has the option of an additional dollar bet. The extra dollar qualifies the player for the progressive pool.
After the deal the players have the opportunity to fold or play. If the player elects to fold their hand they forfeit their ante. If the player elects to play they make an additional bet that must be twice the amount of their ante.
Once all players have made their decision the dealer exposes the rest of their hand. The dealer MUST have at least an A, K high in order to qualify to play. If the dealer does not have a hand of at least A, K they automatically pay all ante bets only.
If the dealer has a hand of A, K or better, then the dealer "Calls" all "Bet" wagers. At this point if the dealers' hand is higher than the players' hand the player loses. If the players' hand is higher, thn the hand is paid according to a payout schedule listed on the table.
If the dealers' hand qualifies and the player had a progressive bet, it is paid according to the progressive payout schedule.
