Mississippi Stud Poker

Full Rules

Mississippi Stud Poker

Mississippi stud is an exciting five card poker game with payouts as high as 500 to 1 and players compete against a pay table, not against the dealer or other players.


Each player receives 2 cards which they will use in addition to 3 community cards to make their traditional poker hand.

Players must wager an ante to play. The dealer will deliver 2 cards to each player. Each player in turn will decide to either fold or buy the first community card (called the 3rd street) by betting 1X, 2X or 3X their ante. When that card is revealed, they either fold or buy the second community card (the 4th) at 1X, 2X or 3X their ante. After that card has been revealed, they either fold or buy the third and final community card (the 5th) at 1X, 2X or 3X their ante.

After all three community cards have been shown, the dealer compares the player’s hand (the player’s two cards plus the community cards) to the posted pay table and pays,

Pay Table

Players have the option of increasing their wager by DOUBLING DOWN after the first two cards are received. The DOUBLE DOWN wager may be an amount up to the amount of the original wager. The hand will then receive one additional card only. A player may DOUBLE DOWN after a split, but may not DOUBLE DOWN after splitting Aces or after receiving a Blackjack.
