Tens or Better: rules and strategy

Tens or Better online video poker

Tens or Better is a slightly rarer variant of video poker than the others, especially if we are talking about real machines (always present in online casinos). Its name “Tens or Better” literally means “Ten or Better”. The reason for this name is due to the score established to obtain the minimum payout, given precisely by a pair of Ten. As can be easily understood, the Tens or Better variant pays more easily and frequently, but with lower average rewards than those that require higher minimum scores. Either way, it depends on your style of play, your tastes and your needs.

Conduct of the Game

At the beginning of the game, the player has the opportunity to bet from 1 to 5 coins, an amount that will affect the amount of credit at stake in the event of winning. Each Tens or Better score is in fact associated with a specific number of coins to be won which will multiply with the bet made. Therefore, if you bet 1 token of € 0.50 and get a pair of tens worth 1, you will win € 0.50. If you get a score that pays 10 coins, you will win € 5 and so on.

Cards and Hold

Once the bet is made, the game starts with the distribution of 5 cards. As in traditional poker, you are entitled to a change of cards in order to improve your score in a subsequent round. In fact, in Tens or Better as in any other video poker you can use the “Hold” or “Hold” function which allows you to keep the cards that you consider useful in order to obtain a better score by changing the cards. However, we recommend that you try your luck with the highest scores (Full, Poker, Straight Flush, Royal Flush). Another tip we give you is to play Tens or Better with progressive jackpots, that is, with increasing jackpots due to the games of other users.

Tens or Better Multi line

In addition to the classic variant, some online casinos present the Tens or Better in a multi-line version, that is, with the possibility of “holding” certain cards of a hand, but obtaining multiple changes. For example, if the starting hand is J, K, 2, 9, 5 and I want to change the last three cards, in a variant with 25 lines I will have 25 different exchange possibilities for the same last three cards.
