Tens or Better is found in a lot of casinos, both live and online. It’s very similar to Jacks or Better and you don’t have to be rocket scientist to spot the biggest twist: the lowest ranked hand that pays out is a pair of tens in this variant.
The payouts for other hands have, of course, been changed to reflect this, but Tens or Better is pretty fun to play for the simple fact that you hit more winning hands more frequently.

As we’ve already said the biggest change to the pay table is lowering the starting hand requirements to Tens or Better. In order to offset this the returns on other holdings have been lowered somewhat, making Four-of-a-Kind, Full Houses and Flushes less valuable. Royal Flushes, on the other hand, also pay out more than in Jacks or Better and in a linear fashion, meaning the return on a bet of one coin is worth a fifth of the return on a bet of five coins, again in contrast to Jacks or Better where you only receive a big Royal Flush payout when betting the maximum.
It should go without saying but if you’ve played a lot of other video poker variants it’s easy to forget: don’t throw away those tens, especially not if you have a pair of them! Tens or Better is fun because you win frequent if small payouts, and that’s where your money comes from. The lower returns on big hands mean you should be more than happy to just keep hitting those pairs and collecting the small but frequent payouts. Since there’s no bonus for hitting a Royal Flush while betting the max – or more accurately, since there’s no penalty for hitting a Royal Flush while betting less than the max – the size of your bet has no strategic importance.
10s or Better at bet365 Casino features their bonus round every time you win a hand, giving you the chance to add a little more gamble to the game. You can choose to simply collect your winnings, or you can play double-or-nothing for half your winnings or even all your winnings. The double-or-nothing game is simply drawing for high card against the dealer, but it spices things up and helps keep the game exciting.
