Tens or Better

Tens or better is named after the wining hands. You need at least a pair of tens or better to win. The game has the same basic rules as jacks or better but feature lower pay outs for different hands to compensate for the fact that a pair of 10s is a winning hand as well. Tens or better is played with a regular 52 card deck without any wild cards. It is an easy game to learn and if you know jacks or better you will get used to it right away. The pay rate is lower than for full pay jacks or better, just 99.1% and unless you really like winning often even if it means being worse of over time there is no reason to ever choose to play this game instead of jacks or better. All casinos and online casinos that feature tens or better will feature jacks or better as well. By playing jacks or better your money will last longer and you will have a better chance of winning money.

Tens or better is not that common in Casinos or in online casinos but if you want to find it you should be able to. It is among other places available in online casinos powered by microgamings software. If you are looking for an online casino to play video poker you should normally choose one that is powered by micro gaming. They offer the widest selection of video poker games of all the big reliable software providers.

Microgaming also offer a power poker version of the game. Power poker allow you to play several hands simultaneously and offering a lot of action and excitement. The game allows you to win or lose large amounts of money quickly. A lot more than is possible in regular video poker. It should however be noted that power poker offer the bank a higher edge than the regular version and makes it impossible to play each hand optimally. When you play power poker each hand is dealt using a unique deck and whatever action you take on your main hand is than duplicated onto the rest of the hands. If you example held card 2 and 5 on your main and discarded the rest than the same cards will be kept and discarded on the other hands as well. It can be very hard to know what is the best things do to get the best result over all hands. This makes the game more challenging and if you like that, more fun. It is a game worth trying and is fun to play for fun. It is however not the game you should be playing if you want to play for money.
