Caribbean Stud has a huge following among gamblers, as the combination of strategic play and a great jackpot bonus bet give it a little something for every kind of player. However, the game can get a little repetitive: unless you are obsessed with trying to play to perfection on every hand, the basic strategy is pretty straightforward.

That’s where Oasis Poker comes in. This variation on the theme adds a discard round to the mix, complicating matters while also giving players a better chance of winning each hand. However, the option to improve your odds does come with a price – one that can be costly if you want a lot of new cards.
How to Play
At the beginning of each hand, the player must make an ante bet. They also have the option of making a bonus bet, a side wager we’ll talk about more below. The player and dealer are then each dealt five cards. The player may examine their own cards, but only one of the dealer’s cards is face up, while the rest are face down.
The main difference between Oasis Poker and Caribbean Stud comes at this point. The player now has the option to discard any number of cards and have them replaced by new cards in the deck in an attempt to improve their hand (if you know your table games then you might notice a slight similarity with Caribbean Draw Poker). However, the player must pay for this switch, with the cost varying depending on how many cards they wish to exchange. Of course, the player may also choose not to make an exchange at all. The costs of switching are as follows:
- One Card: Equal to the Ante Bet
- Two Cards: 2x Ante Bet
- Three Cards: 3x Ante Bet
- Four Cards: 2x Ante Bet
- Five Cards: Equal to the Ante Bet
After the player exchanges cards (or chooses not to), they must then decide to raise or fold (if all five cards were switched, then the player must raise). If the player folds, they forfeit their ante bet and the hand ends immediately. If they raise, they must make a raise bet of twice the size of the ante bet.
Once the player has raised, the dealer’s hand will be revealed. In order to make a qualifying hand, the dealer must have at least ace-king high. If the dealer fails to qualify, then the player wins even money on their ante bet, and the raise bet pushes.
If the dealer qualifies, the two hands are compared. If the dealer has the better hand, then all player bets lose. On a tie, all bets push. If the player wins, then they win even money on their ante bet, and win money on the raise bet based on the strength of their hand. Pay tables for this bet can vary, but a typical one looks like this:
- Royal Flush: 100-1
- Straight Flush: 50-1
- Four of a King: 20-1
- Full House: 7-1
- Flush: 5-1
- Straight: 4-1
- Three of a Kind: 3-1
- Two Pair: 2-1
- One Pair or Less: 1-1
Many versions of this game also offer a jackpot progressive side bet that is based solely on the strength of the player’s hand, and usually only the initial five cards, before the player makes any switches. This bet also has various pay tables at different casinos, but one common pay table offers the following odds:
- Royal Flush: 100% of Progressive Jackpot
- Straight Flush: 10% of Progressive Jackpot
- Four of a Kind: $100
- Full House: $75
- Flush: $50
There are two parts to Oasis Poker strategy: first, the decisions of how many cards you should switch, and then deciding whether or not you should raise on your final hand.
We have yet to see a comprehensive discard strategy for this game, but there are some general tips that can get you pretty close to the optimal strategy. First, you should never be exchanging more than one card under any circumstances. Even then, switching is fairly rare. You should always exchange cards if you have four to a straight flush or royal flush, even if you must break up a pair to do so. If you don’t have a pair, you should also discard a card to draw to a flush or an open-ended straight. If is also sometimes correct to draw a card when you have four to a flush with a low pair, or four to an inside straight without a pair, though these decisions are very situation-dependent.
Once you have your final hand, you should be raising whenever you have at least a pair, and folding when you do not have at least ace-king high. When you have exactly ace-king and three other unpaired cards, you can only make some very minor mistakes, and playing perfectly is very complex and difficult. However, one very simple strategy that comes close to optimal is simply raising in these situations if any of your cards match the rank of the dealer’s up card. In other words, if the dealer is showing a jack, and you also have a jack, then you should raise.
Why Play This Game?
Oasis Poker is a great game for those who want to play a slightly more complicated version of Caribbean Stud. The same progressive jackpot is available, and the basic flow of the game is identical. But the addition of a discard round makes this game take on a bit of a video poker machine feel. It’s not a revolutionary change to the game, but it is enough of a variation to make it an interesting new take on a casino classic.
Oasis Poker is a variation of Caribbean Stud Poker. The rules of Oasis Poker are the same as Caribbean Stud, except the player is allowed to exchange cards before the raise/fold decision, for a price of course. The game can be found mostly in eastern Europe, northern Africa, and Internet casinos using Galewind Software. Following are the complete rules.
- The player makes an ante wager plus optional side bonus side bet.
- Player and the dealer get five cards each. All cards are dealt face down, except one dealer card is exposed. The player may examine his own cards but sharing of information is not allowed.
- The player has the option to switch one card of his choice for the next card in the deck. There is a fee to do this, equal to the ante wager. This fee is non-refundable.
- The player may switch one of more cards. The price for switching depends on the number of cards switched, as follows:
- One card: 1x the Ante.
- Two cards: 2x the Ante.
- Three cards: 3x the Ante.
- Four cards: 2x the Ante.
- Five cards: 1x the Ante.
- If the player switches all five cards, then he must raise.
- The player may either fold or raise.
- If player folds, then he forfeits his cards, ante bet, and side bet (if made).
- If player raises, then he must make a raise wager exactly equal to twice the ante.
- The dealer will turn over his other four cards.
- The dealer must have an ace/king or higher to qualify. In other words, the lowest qualifying hand would be ace,king,4,3,2.
- If the dealer does not qualify then the player will win even money on his ante wager and the raise will push.
- If the dealer qualifies and beats the player both ante and raise will lose.
- If the dealer qualifies and loses to the player then the ante will pay even money and the raise according to the Raise Pay Table below. Other pay tables have been known to exist.
- If the player and dealer tie then both the ante and raise will push.
- The bonus bet win will be entirely based on the poker value of the player’s original hand.
Standard Raise Pay Table
|Royal flush||100 to 1|
|Straight flush||50 to 1|
|Four of a kind||20 to 1|
|Full house||7 to 1|
|Flush||5 to 1|
|Straight||4 to 1|
|Three of a kind||3 to 1|
|Two pair||2 to 1|
|All other||1 to 1|
I have never quantified a perfect card switching strategy. My program makes a perfect decision every time by analyzing all possible combinations of the replacement card and all four dealer cards. However, from running through some test hands I believe the following strategy is close to optimal.
The player should switch one card with any of the following:
- Four to a straight flush and royal flush, even breaking up a pair
- Four to a flush with no pair.
- Four to an outside straight with no pair.
The player will sometimes switch with any of the following:
- Four to a flush with a low pair (depends on the pair and dealer’s up card).
- Four to an inside straight with no pair (depends on the inside straight and dealer’s up card).
My apologies for not being more specific. In my view there, is not enough demand for the information to warrant doing a more detailed strategy.
Do not switch with two pair or three of a kind.
If the casino allows switching two or more cards that option should never be taken.
Once the switch decision has been made the player can follow Caribbean Stud Poker strategy when deciding to raise or fold.
The following return table is based on the pay table above. Other pay tables are known to exist, which would change the odds.

The lower right cell shows a house edge of 1.04%.
After possibly switching and raising, the average final bet, including the switching fee, will be 2.183772 units. The element of risk is thus 0.475%. On average the player will switch 8.4% of the time.
At Internet casinos using Galewind Software there are some rule changes. There the player may switch one to five cards, for the price of one ante per card, and a full house pays 6 instead of 7. Under those rules the house edge is 1.204%, the average final wager is 2.184 units, and the element of risk is 0.55%.
I indicate the odds of the side bet in my Caribbean Stud Poker section. Some casinos have been known to base the side bet on the hand after switching. This can be a very good rule for the player. However, if you see it, you’re on your own.
In Belgium the player is allowed to switch a card, but if he does, he forfeits his option to fold. That version of the rules is addressed in my section on Belgium Variant of Oasis Poker.
Oasis Poker is very popular in Nicaragua. It seems to have more placements than any other game. However, they call it Caribbean Stud Poker. The pay table is the standard one for the original hand. However, it is depressed if the player switches a card, which still costs the price of the Ante bet.
This variant has never been analyzed, as far as I know.
Nicaragua Variant Pay Table
|Four of a kind||20||10|
|Three of a kind||3||3|
As a variant of the Nicaragua variant, the Palms casino in Managua lets the player buy a sixth card for the price of the Ante, as opposed to discarding. This, too, has not been analyzed (sorry).
At the Casino Helsinki the following rule changes are followed:
- The player may exchange only one card from his hand with cost of 1 x ante.
- If the dealer doesn’t qualify player may exchange one card from the dealers hand (see Russian Poker above) to make the dealer to qualify.
- Jackpot Bonus side bet available.
Jackpot Bonus payout
- Royal Flush: Jackpot (minimum amount €20,000)
- Straight Flush: 20% of the jackpot
- Four of a kind: 250 for 1
- Full House: 150 for 1
- Flush: 100 for 1
- Straight: 50 for 1
