The object of 10’s or Better is to obtain a five-card poker hand that contains a winning combination. The better your hand, the bigger the payout (see the winnings table on the machine). You choose how many and which of your cards are to be replaced. You may replace your cards only once.
To play the game:
If you end up with a winning hand, you can accept the winning (press Collect), or you have the option to double it. Should you choose to double, the dealer draws an open card and you are given 4 unexposed cards to choose between.
If you choose a card that is lower than the dealer's, you lose your original winning. If the cards are equal, it is a tie, and you have the option to collect your original winnings (press Collect) or double again. If your card is higher, your win amount is doubled. You then have the option to collect your winnings or double even further.
You can also choose to Half Double, which means you only double for a half of your winning amount. You cannot double, if your winning amount exceeds $2000.
To calculate the winning amount for a card combination, multiply your bet by the number shown in the winnings table in first column from the left.
Columns 2-5 are for reference purposes – when you bet two coins, the winning amount doubles; when you bet three coins, the winning amount triples, etc.
Tens or Better Power Poker is different from the standard Tens or Better video poker as you play four identical hands of cards. At the beginning of each game only the first hand is shown to you, while the other three hands remain face down.
The game then progresses like a standard video poker. There are no wild cards and pays out a maximum of 4000 coins for a Royal flush, with five coins bet.
