one of which is placed face up. Based on the value of your hand and the dealer's
upturned card, you must decide to either increase your bet to maximize your
winnings, or to fold to minimize your loss.

Playing the Game
In Cyberstud Poker it's you against the dealer! The object is to beat
the dealer's poker hand.
At the beginning of each game you are required to place an initial bet,
known as an Ante. This amount appears on the Ante information box. You
can change your Ante between games.
Once you have set your Ante, click the Deal button. You will be dealt a
hand of five cards and the dealer one card. The rest of the dealer's
cards will only be dealt after you have chosen to call or fold. You can
now choose to call or fold, by clicking the appropriate button.
If you fold, you will automatically lose your Ante and can start again.
If you call an additional wager equal to double the Ante is required.
This second wager is called your Bet and is automatically deducted from
your balance when you click the call button.
If you do not have the funds to make the Bet you will not be able to
call. If you want to call you must deposit additional credits before
completing this hand. Once you call the dealer's remaining four cards
are dealt. If the dealer's hand does not have a rank of an Ace-King or
higher, the dealer fails to qualify and the game is over. Your bet will
be returned to you with a double your Ante, irrespective of the value of
your cards. If the dealer's hand does qualify, it is compared to your
hand. If the dealer's hand is higher, you will lose both your Ante and
If the dealer's hand is lower, you will receive twice your Ante and will
be paid out on your Bet according to the payout schedule. The odds that
your hand will pay out, as per the Payout Schedule, will be shown with
the hand information displayed on screen during play.
If your hand and the dealer's tie on rank, whoever has the next highest
ranking card is the winner. If there is an absolute tie, you will get
all your money back.
Once the game is over, you will have the chance to change your Ante and
