There are two theories of its origin. One is that, it was invented by some cruise ship operator in the Caribbean for its floating gambling ships. The other theory holds that it had its origin in a Dutch casino in the Caribbean Island of Aruba. The King International Casino, now called as Excelsior casino, is where Caribbean Stud first came into being. But still the person who invented it is not known. Caribbean Stud Poker found its way to American Casinos in 1988. It is also known as Casino Stud Poker.
