Tens or Better

Tens or Better is a popular video poker game. In this variation of the game, the payouts start from a pair of tens.

Since it’s easier for the player to win, the game is considered to be a more beginner-friendly version of Jacks or Better. The payout percentage of a full pay Tens or Better machine is 99.14%, which is slightly lower than that of a 9/6 Jacks or Better machine (99.54%).
