There are some major rules in Caribbean Stud Poker that must be observed at all times while playing:

  • Only one hand per player. Players cannot hold or wager on multiple hands at the table.
  • Players choosing to play the Progressive Payout feature are responsible for ensuring their $1 wager has been inserted into slot and the "Indicator Light" is ON.
  • Players may not exchange or communicate information regarding their hands to other players or the dealer. Player violation will result in a dead hand and forfeiture of all wagers.
  • Incorrect amount of cards to the player constitutes a dead hand (or push) for that player only.
  • The decision of the table/casino supervisor is final.
  • If the dealer is dealt four cards of the five-card hand, the dealer shall deal an additional card to complete the hand. Any other misdeal to the dealer shall result in all hands being void and the cards shall be reshuffled.
  • Each player shall be required to keep the five cards in full view of the dealer at all times. Once each player has examined his or her cards and placed them face down on the layout, they may not touch the cards again.
  • If a hole card is exposed prior to the dealer announcing No More Bets, all hands shall be void.

what "slot" and "indicator light" are you talking about? Sounds like you have something in mind...
the slot is where the players would put their chips if they wish to be part of the progressive jackpot, each seat has an indicator light and is put on to indicate they are in the jackpot
