Tens or Better

Welcome to Tens or Better

Video Poker is a relatively modern invention, a marriage of sorts between the traditional Poker game and slot machines. Video poker is a contest between the player and the machine. The dealer (the machine) deals the player a hand of five cards. When cards are turned face up the player decides which cards to hold (keep) or discard. Then the player draws to replace any discarded cards. The objective is to finish the game with the strongest hand possible. The payout at the end of the game is dependent on the value of the hand the player is holding. If the player won the hand an opportunity to increase your winnings arises.

The name "Tens or Better" refers to the fact that the lowest (or least valuable) standard poker hand that will payout in this game is a hand containing at least a pair of Tens or more valuable cards. There are no wild cards in Tens or Better.

Tens or Better is played with a 52-card deck that is shuffled after every completed hand.
