Oasis Poker

4 August 2010

There are plenty of options for poker players at the casinos, but sometimes those options can run a little dry. If you're thirsty for a new poker game, head to 7Red casino and try out Oasis Poker.

Oasis Poker is an offshoot of Caribbean Stud. It is a table game played heads-up against the dealer. The goal is to beat the dealer. To start the game, you must place an ante. You are dealt five cards face-up, and then the dealer is dealt five cards, with only the first one being face-up. When you have looked at your cards and the dealer's open card, you must decide whether to make a bet, exchange cards or fold.

The bet you make is the same as your ante. You can choose to exchange cards as well, for a price. Exchanging one card costs you the ante bet. Exchanging two cards costs you two times the ante bet. Three cards cost three times the ante, while exchanging four cards only costs you twice the ante. Exchanging all five cards costs you the ante plus a raise.

The dealer has to have a minimum hand of Ace-King to qualify. All winning hands (pairs and up) qualify. If the dealer's hand does not qualify, you receive 1-to-1 on your ante only, and your bet is returned to you without winnings. When the dealer and the player receive hands of equal value, both the ante and the bet are returned to the player.

Oasis Poker is a fun variant of Caribbean Stud that's a nice change of pace from other poker games. Swing by 7Red casino and try it out.
