Best Card Game for the Blind? Try THETA Poker Pro - Texas Hold 'Em

January 5, 2015 in Games (E)

[] Belmont, Massachusetts - The Cadillac of poker is now one of the best card games you can play without looking at your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. THETA Poker Pro has been fully accessible since its initial release in 2013, but with the excellent, enthusiastic support from the blind community, recent updates have made the app even better with streamlined play, improved narration, and a convenient VoiceOver menu.

Why THETA Poker Pro?

* If you don't already know the rules, No Limit Texas Hold 'Em is truly a "minute to learn, a lifetime to master". It's a simple but incredibly rich poker variation that contains all of the best parts of an mystery thriller: action, suspense, intuition, deduction, plot twists (as the flop, turn, river change the values of everyone's hands), foul play (bluffs), and even murder (of your opponents' chip stacks).

* In Hold 'Em, you have only two hole cards to remember, and in THETA Poker Pro they're located directly above the home button if you need a reminder of what they are.

* With VoiceOver, you hear all the action: your hole cards, the community cards, the betting, the values of all hands that reach showdown, and the pot size.

* With THETA Poker Pro's special Accessibility gestures, you never need to locate your cards or your chips to fold, check, call, bet, or raise. And a triple shake will remind you of the community cards, the pot, and all the players who are still in the hand.

* THETA Poker Pro is the strongest Hold 'Em game in the App Store, but by default you start in the Easy Career Mode, so you have time to learn the ropes before you move on to more serious competition.

* You can customize THETA Poker Pro with dozens of options, but the app now sports a new top-level VoiceOver menu that contains the most important settings for Accessibility users.

Other Highlights:
Developed by poker players for poker players, THETA Poker Pro's unparalleled realism begins with human-like AI and includes blind and payout schedules, chipping up, table balancing, dead buttons, tighter bubble play, optional rabbit hunting, and more. Online-like features include heads-up displays to show how your opponents are playing and mailable hand recaps to share with your friends or analyze with various Hold 'Em tools.

Career Mode takes you automatically through progressively larger and more difficult tournaments, but you can also configure your own knockout tournaments, shootout events, and ring games. Hold your device in Portrait or Landscape mode, adjust the speed of the action, the buyin amount, the size of the blinds, and much more.

THETA Poker Pro contains no ads to bother you, offers no in-app purchases to drain your wallet, has no registration to track you, and requires no Internet connection to use up your battery or data plan.

No matter what your vision is, THETA Poker Pro gives you the strongest, fastest, most configurable, and most accessible Texas Hold 'Em game in the App Store. Have fun while improving your Hold 'Em skills!
