5 Card Draw plus Caribbean Stud Poker: Oasis Poker

Caribbean Stud Poker has long been a popular real money online casino game as well as being a regular feature in many of the live casinos. Now via the experienced software developer NetEnt the online casinos have created a virtual table version that includes a mixture of 5 card draw and Caribbean Stud poker into a single game.

‘Oasis Poker give players the option to draw for new cards after the first deal’

One of the big reasons Oasis poker has become so popular is because it moves away from the original rules of Caribbean Poker. In the normal game of Caribbean Poker players receive 5 cards and can either decide to fold or call. They do this on the basis of the hand that has been dealt and by looking at the dealer’s only face-up card out 5 cards. However, Oasis Poker adds an additional option – you can pay the house to swap cards out and improve your hand.

‘The payment for the extra doesn’t make a difference to the eventual pay-out as such, but if it forms a better hand, then it can be worth the extra cash’

When the showdown comes and the player wins, the same payments apply as per the rules of the pay table. Therefore, despite the player paying extra to have a card or cards swapped out, that payment will not give any bonus extras. Many players at a first glance would then think “What is the point?. Yet, should the additional bet be worth the risk in order to improve the value of a hand, then the payment is worth it.



‘If you have a two pair, an extra $1 to change 1 card could make a full house extending the pay-out from 2-1 to possible 5-1’

The main strategy behind the draw phase of the game is to give players who have already made a pay worthy hand the chance to try and land a better higher paying hand. For instance, maybe you have three of a kind and swap two cards out in the hope you may make a four of a kind or a full house to increase the odds of the final pay0out.

Those making money playing Oasis Poker are already over the novelty factor of being able to draw for more cards and wasting money by overusing this feature. Instead the pros use the feature sparingly for times when they can see the dealer will qualify for a hand when the face-up card is an Ace. When this is the case and there is a made hand worth chasing for a better hand, then the rewards can turn a bad session into a winning session, and a winning session into an even bigger winning session!
